Historically within urogynecology, the lack of data combined with commercial pressure has been persuasive. In addition, many databases are designed to evaluate procedures and their outcomes rather than to provide decision-making guidance. The IUGA Database aims to address these short-comings.
The IUGA Database Challenge, October 1-7, 2018, will not only introduce members to the database but will also demonstrate the power of numbers. Our goal is to have at least 5,000 cases entered during the challenge week. Initial data will provide world demographics of surgery with the aim of being able to set standards for simple procedures.
All IUGA members receive free access to the IUGA Surgical Database as a benefit of membership. Learn more about the Challenge and request your free account today!
