Effects of anterior trocar guided transvaginal mesh surgery on lower urinary tract symptoms

, : Effects of anterior trocar guided transvaginal mesh surgery on lower urinary tract symptoms. Neurourology and Urodynamics 29(8): 1419-1423

To assess the effects of trocar guided transvaginal mesh on lower urinary tract symptoms after anterior vaginal wall prolapse repair. One hundred twenty-one patients undergoing anterior transvaginal mesh surgery was prospectively evaluated at baseline and 1 year after surgery using the urogenital distress inventory (UDI). Overall UDI scores declined from 91 before surgery to 31 one year after surgery (P < 0.001). UDI subscales for obstructive and irritative symptoms improved 1 year after surgery (P < 0.001 for both) while stress symptoms did not (P = 0.11). Trocar guided transvaginal mesh surgery for anterior vaginal wall prolapse was associated with an overall resolution of most symptoms associated with overactive bladder syndrome and bladder outlet obstruction. These beneficial effects should be weighed against an increased risk for stress urinary incontinence related to the procedure.
