Foley Catheterization Following Sacrocolpopexy
The objective of this study is to prospectively evaluate the effects of early versus delayed removal of transuretheral catheters following sacrocolpopexy. The investigators specific aim is to determine the optimal time of removal of an indwelling transurethral catheter postoperatively in an effort to reduce the risk of postoperative urinary retention and urinary tract infection associated with catheter use. The investigators hypotheses are as follows:
Hypothesis 1: Longer duration of postoperative catheter use will result in decreased postoperative urinary retention.
Hypothesis 2: Shorter duration of postoperative catheter use will result in lower incidence of urinary tract infection.
