Urogynecology Patient Stories
I’d had a leaky bladder for a few years. About a year ago, I underwent a full hysterectomy and a bladder suspension a year ago at another hospital; I had a prolapsed uterus in addition to my bladder issue. But after six months, I noticed the leakage was still happening. More
When I had a prolapsed bladder, my gynecologist referred me to Dr. Denman at OHSU. And Dr. Denman was excellent: Lovely, pleasant and professional. We talked about options and decided I was a good candidate to have this fixed surgically. More
Clinical Trials in Urogynecology
Evaluation of Treatment Method for Combined Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence
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. IRB #5302
Examining the brain's control systems in overactive bladder using mindful based approach
Researchers at the OHSU Center for Women’s Health are conducting studies to find out what role the brain plays in people suffering from overactive bladder. We hope to see how using a mindfulness based stress reduction technique may improve symptoms related to urine incontinence and if symptom improvement also includes changes in brain function using MRI and DTI brain imaging. IRB # 9405
Reducing bleeding with the contraceptive implant
The Women’s Health Research Unit is recruiting for a clinical research study evaluating if a drug can help reduce irregular bleeding in women who use the implant for contraception.
Refractory Overactive Bladder: Sacral Neuromodulation v. Botulinum Toxin Assessment
This study looks at how BOTOX® injections into the bladder compares to InterStim® for the treatment of urge urinary incontinence in women. IRB #8190
Ulipristal Acetate Oral Contraceptive Study
The purpose of this study is to learn more about an exciting new estrogen-free contraceptive pill containing ulipristal acetate (UPA).
