Predictors for long-term adherence to vaginal pessary in pelvic organ prolapse: a prospective study
ConclusionsOur study suggests that no prior hysterectomy, the local estrogen therapy, and age might be factors associated with use of a ring vaginal pessary for longer than 1 year. Long-term pessary users had a significant improvement in their quality of life. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

A robotic approach to management of failed sacrocolpopexy and sacrocolpopexy complications: a case series
ConclusionsProlapse recurrence and complications after SCP have a significant impact on patient quality of life. Recurrent prolapse after SCP theoretically occurs because of mesh detachment from the cervix/vagina, the anterior longitudinal ligament, or disruption/stretching of the mesh. Our case series demonstrates that abdominal re-exploration is feasible and valuable in these rare cases. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

Comparison of two questionnaires to diagnose obstructive defecation syndrome during pregnancy and post-natally
ConclusionsComparison of e-PAQ evacuatory domain scores and ODS-S show a strong correlation, with an e-PAQ score of ≥33 promising for identifying women with an ODS score of ≥9, indicating ODS. This study will enable us to identify women during pregnancy and post-natally with ODS for whom early recognition and intervention may be beneficial.

The emperor has no clothes: OAB can be cured surgically
This study was followed by many other publica tions over the years recording OAB cure. It is not that even a small fraction of the 600 million women on the planet will now undergo surgery, or that damaged ligaments are the only cause of OAB. However, knowing OAB can be cured opens the door for young creative minds to bring hope and relief to th ese women non-surgically, as well as surgically.
