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.

Which patient reported outcomes (PROs) and patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) do researchers select in stress urinary incontinence surgical trials? – a systematic review
ConclusionsThere is no consensus amongst relevant stakeholders regarding PROs or PROMs used in SUI surgery research. We propose that this consensus is required to standardize measurements and reporting and promote use of validated and reliable outcome measures. This systematic review forms the first step in the development process. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

CO2 Laser and radiofrequency compared to a sham control group in treatment of stress urinary incontinence (LARF study arm 3). A randomized controlled trial
ConclusionsCO2 laser and radiofrequency are outpatient options for SUI treatment, with no major complications. They had similar results and presented better results than in the sham control group. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

Laparoscopic synthetic mesh explantation after sacrohysteropexy
ConclusionLaparoscopy appears to be an efficient approach to mesh explantation. Futhermore, laparoscopic pectopexy seems to be a good approach to secondary prolapse reconstruction after sacrohysteropexy mesh explantation avoiding complications during repeated dissection of the promontory.

No pelvic exam, no problem: patient satisfaction following the integration of comprehensive urogynecology telemedicine
ConclusionsWe demonstrate high patient satisfaction for telemedicine visits in a tertiary urogynecology clinic for a variety of indications, with greater fulfillment of urogynecologic needs observed for those visits which may not necessitate an in-person exam (e.g., urinary complaint).

Patient-reported outcome measures for pain in women with pelvic floor disorders: a systematic review
ConclusionsThe findings of this review suggest there are no current PROMs that are suitable pain-specific instruments for women with POP or SUI. This knowledge may inform and assist in the development of a new PROM to be implemented into the APFPR. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

Surgical interventions in female urethral strictures: a comprehensive literature review
ConclusionIn practice, UD is tried first for FUS, at least once, before urethroplasty. In case of failure or short recurrence following UD, urethroplasty should not be delayed. In experienced hands, urethroplasty has a better outcome. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)
