Clinical trial regarding endometrial cancer and stress urinary incontinence

Gynecologic oncologist Gretchen E. Glaser, M.D., with Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses a study that compares the quality of life and clinical outcomes among women with endometrial cancer and stress urinary incontinence who have concurrent surgery with that of women who do not have concurrent surgery.

Dr. Glaser notes that stress urinary incontinence can be treated via a quick outpatient procedure that can easily be performed at the time of surgery for endometrial cancer. The study seeks to confirm whether concurrent treatment of endometrial cancer and stress urinary incontinence improves patients' quality of life and emotional and physical health, and decreases costs for both patients and the health care system.
