  • Cystoscopy can identify lower genitourinary tract injury intraoperatively and prevent patient morbidity.
  • Ureteral efflux should be confirmed when cystoscopy is performed during pelvic organ prolapse reconstructive surgery; multiple agents exist to aid with this if needed.
  • Universal cystoscopy should be performed at the time of all pelvic organ prolapse reconstructive operations, with the exception of operations solely for posterior compartment defects.
