||Female Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
||Recurrent female stress urinary incontinence Surgical management Urodynamics
Aims and Objectives
Mid-urethral slings (MUS) are the most widely used surgical treatment options for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). With widespread use of MUS, recurrent or persistent SUI is becoming an increasingly common condition where its management is challenging. The aims of our workshop are: 1) to elaborate the preoperative and intraoperative causes of MUS failure; 2) to discuss the clinical and urodynamic assessment of patients after MUS failure and; 3) to assess conservative and surgical management options including re-MUS, adjustable slings, pubovaginal sling, retropubic suspension, artificial urinary sphincter and periurethral bulking agents, in patients with recurrent or persistent SUI after MUS.
- To recognize the pre- and intraoperative causes of recurrent SUI after MUS surgery.
- To identify patients with recurrent SUI after MUS and assess them with clinical and urodynamic tools for further decision-making.
- To manage recurrent SUI after MUS surgery by utilization of different conservative and surgical treatment options under the guidance of evidence-based medicine.
