Patient perceived improvement and medication resumption rates after intradetrusor onabotulinumtoxina for idiopathic urgency urinary incontinence
ConclusionsMedian time to first and maximal improvement was 3 and 7 days, respectively, following initial 100 units BTX-A. Eighty percent of patients on medications opted to remain off at 1 month. These data may help further counsel patient expectations following initial BTX-A therapy. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

Relaxin-2 during pregnancy according to glycemia, continence status, and pelvic floor muscle function
ConclusionsLower relaxin-2 concentration was associated with the presence of pregnancy-specific urinary incontinence, but the combination of GDM, pregnancy-specific urinary incontinence, and lower levels of pelvic floor strength led to lower levels of relaxin-2 compared to the other three groups.

The modified Manchester Fothergill procedure compared with vaginal hysterectomy with low uterosacral ligament suspension in patients with pelvic organ prolapse: long-term outcome
ConclusionsThe subjective recurrence after MF is similar to VH in treatment of POP at the long term. MF appears to be non-inferior to VH when comparing the risk of reintervention. However, the small sample size precludes a definitive conclusion of non-inferiority, and future studies are needed. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction)

How does office assessment of prolapse compare to what is seen in the operating room?
ConclusionsSurgeons should rely on preoperative POP-Q for surgical decisions. Gh should be reassessed after apical suspension, and further correction should consider that Gh may be exaggerated compared to the measurement postoperatively when the patient is awake.

Starting a peripartum pelvic floor disorder clinic: what to expect in the first thirty-six months
ConclusionsThe 36-month experiences in our growing subspecialty peripartum PFD clinic demonstrate both sustainability and feasibility of this new service line, with consistent clinical growth over time and 483 new consultations, 2/3 of which were for OASI and the other 1/3 for a variety of peripartum pelvic floor indications. Our data outline a model for care, including timeline for follow-up, treatments administered, and number of interventions, both office and surgical.
