Stress incontinence surgery does not increased risk of pelvic cancers

Sumary of Stress incontinence surgery does not increased risk of pelvic cancers:

  • Women undergoing surgery to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) are not at increased risk of developing pelvic cancers, according to a large-scale, population-based study in The Journal of Urology®, Official Journal of the American Urological Association (AUA)..
  • In a very large population with extended follow-up, we found no increase in the risk of any pelvic malignancy in women who underwent stress urinary incontinence surgery..
  • No increase in cancers after SUI surgery – with or without transvaginal mesh Related Stories Using Ontario health data, the researchers identified nearly 75,000 women who underwent SUI surgery between 2002 and 2015..
  • A time to event analysis was used to determine the risk of pelvic cancer in SUI surgery patients compared to more than 5.5 million women who did not undergo SUI surgery..
  • The event rate for pelvic malignancies was 0.90 per 1,000 person-years of follow-up in women undergoing SUI surgery, compared to 0.85 per 1,000 person-years in controls who did not have surgery..
  • After adjustment for multiple factors, there was a lower risk of pelvic cancers in women who underwent SUI surgery..
  • women opting for an elective procedure such as SUI surgery may be relatively healthier (selection bias), or cancers might be detected during assessment before SUI surgery..
  • Importantly, there was no evidence of increased cancer risk in women undergoing SUI surgery with implanted transvaginal mesh….
