Introduction: Bladder dysfunctions are a common sequela after radical hysterectomy (RH, former type III sec Piver) ranging from 8 to 80%. This discrepancy, probably, reflects the different bladder function evaluation methods utilized in literature. Material and methods: We searched English-language medical reports published from 1952 to 2010, on MEDLINE. Inclusion criteria were: (1) studies of urological dysfunctions in patients with cervical cancer, treated with type III sec Piver (C2 sec Querleu) radical hysterectomy; (2) use of urodynamic measurement. Results: The overall incidence of urodynamic bladder dysfunctions is 72%. Follow-up >12 months studies report a high incidence of overactive detrusor low compliance (34%). Eight out of 19 studies show a decrease of the maximal urethral closure pressure (MUCP). Discussion and conclusions: Follow-up timing seems to be the major factor influencing the wide range of incidence of bladder dysfunction. Urodynamic data could help physicians to formulate appropriate evaluation and treatment for patients having urge incontinence (UI) after RH. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract

Introduction: Bladder dysfunctions are a common sequela after radical hysterectomy (RH, former type III sec Piver) ranging from 8 to 80%. This discrepancy, probably, reflects the different bladder function evaluation methods utilized in literature. Material and methods: We searched English-language medical reports published from 1952 to 2010, on MEDLINE. Inclusion criteria were: (1) studies of urological dysfunctions in patients with cervical cancer, treated with type III sec Piver (C2 sec Querleu) radical hysterectomy; (2) use of urodynamic measurement. Results: The overall incidence of urodynamic bladder dysfunctions is 72%. Follow-up >12 months studies report a high incidence of overactive detrusor low compliance (34%). Eight out of 19 studies show a decrease of the maximal urethral closure pressure (MUCP). Discussion and conclusions: Follow-up timing seems to be the major factor influencing the wide range of incidence of bladder dysfunction. Urodynamic data could help physicians to formulate appropriate evaluation and treatment for patients having urge incontinence (UI) after RH. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
