Aims and Objectives
There is growing evidence supporting the effectiveness of conservative management for various pelvic floor disorders. The International Consultation on Incontinence (ICI) book has been updated with new evidence for conservative management for pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and anal incontinence. Moreover, new technologies assisting pelvic floor muscle training are becoming numerous. Finally, recent studies have investigated treatment for obstetric anal sphincter injuries and erectile dysfunctions. Clinicians should be aware of these new evidences to guide the selection of optimal interventions. This workshop will provide a thorough update of the evidence and will enable clinicians to transfer this knowledge into their clinical practice.
