    Pelvic Floor Disorders Registry

    The Pelvic Floor Disorders Registry (PFDR), the American Urogynecologic Society's (AUGS) national patient registry, is a multi-centered prospective cohort of patients undergoing treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) to evaluate the effectiveness, quality of life and safety associated with both surgical therapy (transvaginal/transabdominal native tissue repair, transvaginal mesh repair and sacrocolpopexy) and non-surgical management (pessary). The PFDR is designed to collect both provider and patient reported outcomes through broad participation by physicians providing treatment for POP.
