Summary by Carlos Errando
The session had an outstanding participation and discussion from the floor. Interestingly the RCT trial about the usefulness of PFM in postpartum women found no difference in symptoms of bulging even with a significant change in PFM strength and endurance in the PFMT group. One abstract was withdrawn by the presenters due to discrepancies found in the last analysis of their work. This emphasises the high level of commitment of their authors with the scientific quality that the ICS presentations deserves.
Two presentations about lap-sacrocolpopexy stated the evidence of the safety and efficacy of this technique, and the possible relation between a higher position and displacement of the mesh and the rate of cystocele recurrence. However, long-term results are rewarded to confirm these findings.
