INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Standardized terminology has yet to be developed for reporting the outcomes for surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
METHODS: This report combines the input of the Terminology and Standardization Committees of the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) and the International Continence Society (ICS) and a joint Working Group on this topic, as well as expert external referees. The aim was to present a standardized terminology for the definitions of surgery and propose a structure for reporting the outcomes of surgical procedures for POP. An extensive drafting and review process was undertaken, as well as open review on both IUGA and ICS websites.
RESULTS: A terminology report was developed outlining the recommended structure for reporting outcomes of surgical trials involving POP. This document does not define success and failure. The report includes patient-reported subjective and objective outcomes to enable researchers to report on their results and compare them with other studies.
CONCLUSIONS: A consensus-based method for standardizing terminology for reporting outcome measures of POP surgery was developed to aid clinicians working in this area of research. Neurourol. Urodynam. 31:415-421, 2012. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
