Second-Line Surgical Management After Midurethral Sling Failure.

Int Neurourol J 2021 Jun 29;25(2):111-118. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Department of Urology, Catholic University of Daegu School of Medicine, Daegu, Korea.

Currently, the midurethral sling (MUS) is widely used as a standard treatment in patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Several studies have reported the failure rate of MUS to be approximately 5%-20%.

Current Overview of Surgical Options for Female Stress Urinary Incontinence.

Int Neurourol J 2020 Sep 30;24(3):222-230. Epub 2020 Sep 30.

Department of Urology, KonKuk University Medical Center, KonKuk University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a highly prevalent health condition that significantly impacts the quality of life. Traditional methods of treatment for SUI, such as pubovaginal sling and Burch colposuspension, have been replaced by the midurethral sling because of its high efficacy, low complication and morbidity rates, and short learning curve. Although multiple behavioral and operative treatments exist, midurethral slings are the gold standard for the treatment of SUI in women. Read More

A timeline of female stress urinary incontinence: how technology defined theory and advanced treatment.

Neurourol Urodyn 2020 08 8;39(6):1862-1867. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.

Background: Prevailing theories and treatments of female stress urinary incontinence are built on 120 years of evolution in understanding the structure and function of the female bladder neck and urethra and of considering why treatments failed. In our management of patients, it is important to understand and appreciate how our management of female stress urinary incontinence has evolved and which treatments have prevailed as we advance our knowledge for future treatments.

Aims: The purpose of this review is to describe how advances in technology impacted and shaped prevailing theories or understanding of the pathophysiology of stress urinary incontinence and influences our treatment approach. Read More

Autologous Pubovaginal Sling for the Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence in a Patient With High Risk of Mesh Erosion.

Urology 2020 09 2;143:266. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Advanced Urology Associates Pte Ltd, Singapore (formerly Department of Urology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore).

Objective: Autologous pubovaginal sling is a surgical option for patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), either as primary treatment, or in those who have failed synthetic sling placement. It is also favorable for patients at high risk of mesh erosion, for example, in those who are immunocompromised or postradiation. This video reviews the technical considerations in performing an autologous pubovaginal sling fashioned from rectus fascia in an immunocompromised patient with multiple previous abdominal surgeries.

Development of a safety zone for rectus abdominis fascia graft harvest based on dissections of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2020 05 1;222(5):480.e1-480.e7. Epub 2020 Apr 1.

Department of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology, University of Louisville School of Medicine, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY.

Background: As a result of the vaginal mesh controversy, surgeons are performing more nonmesh, autologous fascia pubovaginal slings to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. The rectus abdominis fascia is the most commonly harvested site for autologous pubovaginal slings, so it is crucial that surgeons are familiar with the relationship between this graft harvest site and the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves, which can be injured during this procedure.

Objective: The aims of this study were as follows: (1) to estimate the safest area between the bilateral courses of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves in which a rectus abdominis fascia graft could be harvested with minimal risk of injury to these nerves and (2) to determine the location and dimensions of a graft harvest site that maximized graft length while remaining close to the pubic symphysis.

The autologous pubovaginal fascial sling: An update in 2019.

Low Urin Tract Symptoms 2020 Jan 13;12(1):2-7. Epub 2019 Aug 13.

Department of Surgery, Concord Repatriation General Hospital, University of Sydney and Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.

The contemporary management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has seen renewed interest in the use of autologous fascia for the formation of a retropubic suburethral sling. Traditionally, it has been used in only the most severe of incontinence cases, such as those women with intrinsic sphincter deficiency, or in patients requiring concomitant reconstructive procedures. In the current climate surrounding transvaginal mesh, many doctors and patients are shying away from the less morbid synthetic midurethral sling. Read More
