Challenges of very long-term reporting in stress urinary incontinence surgeries in women

Urology Feb 10, 2020

Kuprasertkul A, et al. - Researchers sought to evaluate studies on surgeries to correct stress urinary incontinence (SUI) with very long-term results (≥ 10 years) to explore the challenges in reporting long-term follow-up. The study searched a comprehensive Ovid and PubMed for articles containing long-term data over 10 years for the most commonly established surgical procedures to correct SUI. In this study, the methods of follow-up, lost to follow-up (LTF) rates, cure rates, and complications were analyzed. The results suggested that, for SUI surgeries, all very long-term data share considerable LTF, infrequent examination data, mostly questionnaire-based information, and variable success rates from varying success definitions. It was demonstrated that standardization of all these key result measures is necessarily required to give more positive long-term information on the outcome of these procedures.
