    • Abstract:
      Introduction and hypothesis: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) frequently presents with urinary incontinence, either urge (UUI), stress (SUI), or mixed (MUI). We sought to determine the effect of high-grade prolapse repair on MUI. Methods: A retrospective review was performed for 111 patients with anterior POP repair and sling over 4 years. Results: Sixty patients (54%) presented symptomatically with MUI, 25% with SUI, and 9% with UUI, 12% asymptomatic. Occult SUI was found in 21% (UUI plus asymptomatic). Success was seen for SUI in 92% and for POP in 89%. Urge symptoms were present in 63% pre-op and 30% post-op. MUI patients were significantly more likely to experience post-op urgency ( p = 0.033). Detrusor overactivity (DO) was seen in 22 MUI patients, but was not predictive of post-op urgency ( p = 0.91). Conclusions: Cystocele patients with MUI are at significant risk for postoperative urge symptoms regardless of DO, and counseling regarding persistent urgency is imperative. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
