International Urogynecological Consultation (IUC): pathophysiology of pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
ConclusionsGenetics, vaginal birth and age all have a strong etiologic link to the development of POP, to which other factors may add or protect against the risk. (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.

Comorbidities of bladder pain syndrome in the context of the HITOP distress category: a systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsWhile there is still need for studies focused on some of the comorbidities as well as on different care settings, the data already show that psychological comorbidities of the distress category play an important role in IC/BPS patients regarding suffering, QoL, and symptom severity, thus emphasizing the need for highly specialized interdisciplinary treatment.

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)
