Clinical Trial Summary

The aim of this study is to assess cognitive function before and after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse using sensitive tests of various neurocognitive domains.

Clinical Trial Description

Post operative cognitive dysfunction has been well described as a relatively common phenomenon with potentially long-lasting detrimental effects. However, there are currently limited data exploring the effects of gynecologic surgery on cognitive function. The population of patients treated surgically for pelvic floor disorders is typically older, and therefore at higher baseline risk for cognitive dysfunction. Therefore, it is of interest to determine the effects of pelvic floor surgery and anesthesia on this patient population. The investigators plan to conduct a prospective cohort study to assess cognitive function before and after pelvic organ prolapse surgery using sensitive tests of memory and other neurocognitive domains. Participants will be women undergoing surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. All participants will undergo cognitive tests at three time points: at their pre-operative clinic appointment, in the hospital the morning after surgery, and at their post-operative clinic appointment. In addition to the neurocognitive tests, patients will undergo a series of questionnaires regarding physical function, frailty, sleep quality, and incontinence symptoms. ;
