Boston Scientific actively partners with leading researchers in two large-scale clinical projects.
Pelvic Floor Disorders Registry (PFDR) – In support with the American Urogynecological Society (AUGS) and other industry partners, Boston Scientific is part of a national patient registry to evaluate the effectiveness, quality of life and safety associated with native tissue repair and mesh repair.
SUPeR study – Boston Scientific has contributed funding to a randomized, blinded study to compare the effectiveness and safety of two transvaginal apical suspension strategies for uterovaginal prolapse. The SUPeR study is conducted by the Pelvic Floor Disorders Network (PFDN), a multi-center network of the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD).
