ABSTRACT
PURPOSE
To determine the incidence of concomitant procedures performed for pelvic organ prolapse or vaginal reconstruction at the time of surgery for stress urinary incontinence in contemporary urologic practice.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
We retrospectively examined all concomitant procedures for pelvic organ prolapse or vaginal reconstruction in 279 women who had underwent sling operation for stress urinary incontinence at our institution. The subjects presented with stress urinary incontinence underwent history taking, physical examination and urologic investigations such as standing cystourethrography and urodynamic study including Valsalva leak point pressure.
RESULTS
Of 279 women, 64(22.9%) had at least one concomitant procedure performed for pelvic organ prolapse or vaginal reconstruction, including 43(15.4%) cystocele repairs, 24(8.6%) rectocele repairs, 6(2.2%) cystocele and rectocele repairs concurrently, 2(0.7%) vaginal hysterectomy and 1(0.4%) urethral diverticulectomy.
CONCLUSION
We found that women who undergo surgery for stress urinary incontinence had a high incidence(22.2%) of associated pelvic organ prolapse requiring surgical repair. These additional maneuvers contributed to the overall success of surgery and should not be overlooked.
