    Female Urology: SUFU launches clinical care pathway for OAB patients

    • Involvement of resident physicians did not adversely affect length of stay or 30-day perioperative outcomes following minimally invasive abdominal sarocolpopexy.
    • Preoperative urodynamics for women undergoing prolapse surgery did not significantly affect perioperative management, aside from revealing occult stress urinary incontinence.
    • The addition of bladder ultrasound during urodynamics assessment detected wall tension and stress not indicated by vesicle pressure catheterization.
    • A retrospective multicenter analysis showed that a history of radiation therapy decreased time to idiopathic erosion of an artificial urinary sphincter.
    • A preclinical study showed that long-term pudendal nerve electrical stimulation accelerated recovery from stress incontinence via increased neurotrophin expression and nerve regeneration, suggesting electrical stimulation may shorten postpartum duration of stress urinary incontinence and potentially reduce the risk of later SUI development.
