ABSTRACT
PURPOSE
Some women choose to undergo posterior colporrhaphy (PC) concurrently with procedures for SUI to regain sexual confidence and improve sexual function. We determine the effect of PC on sexual function in women requiring a midurethral sling for SUI.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
A total of 119 women were retrospectively reviewed 81 women had the midurethral sling alone (Group A), and 38 women voluntarily had PC concurrently with the midurethral sling (Group B). Sexual function was evaluated using the FSFI before and after surgery.
RESULTS
The postoperative composite scores were significantly increased in both groups (Group A: p=0.02; Group B: p=0.04), and significant increases were observed in 'desire,' 'arousal' and 'satisfaction'. However, there were no significant differences in the composite score or six domainscores between the two groups.
CONCLUSION
PC performed concurrently with midurethral sling for treatment of SUI does not provide any additional benefits towards improving the sexual function.
