Evaluation of Treatment Method for Combined Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence
Clinical Trial Seeking Participants
Effectiveness of Minimally Invasive Sacrocolpopexy and TVT for Combined Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence
IRB 5302 (PI: Blake Osmundsen, MD)
This study looks at whether the success rate of mid-urethral slings for incontinence is similar in patients with prolapse (undergoing laparoscopic sacrocolpoplexy) as those patients without prolapse.
Patients are recruited through the Center for Women's Health Urogynecology Clinic.
Open for Enrollment: seeking participants
Why is the study being done?
Often times women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence (leakage of urine with stress on the bladder, such as coughing, exercise) also have significant pelvic organ prolapse (also known as a hernia in the muscles of the female pelvic floor); both are problems that can be corrected with surgery. Researchers hope to determine if women who have combined surgery to correct urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse at the same time, enjoy the same amount of cure of incontinence as women who have only urinary incontinence surgery.
Who is eligible to participate?
This study is currently only recruiting new subjects from within the OHSU Urogynecology practice.
What is the compensation for this study?
You may or may not personally benefit from being in this study. However, by serving as a subject, you may help us learn how to benefit patients in the future.
