UCLA Clinical Updates: The Latest Advances

  • UCLA pelvic-floor reconstructive surgeons have developed alternative procedures to provide durable repair of pelvic-organ prolapse. This follows a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warning that transvaginal placement of surgical mesh for the repair of prolapsed bladder, rectum, uterus or vaginal vault after hysterectomy may expose patients to more risk than other surgical options.
  • UCLA's innovative IMPROVE HF Performance Improvement Initiative helps doctors follow evidence-based guidelines for treating heartfailure patients to save lives, improve patient quality of life, prevent hospitalizations and reduce medical costs.
