KOL-Index: 12446 . OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the effect of intravenous acetaminophen versus placebo on postoperative pain, satisfaction with pain control, and narcotic use after vaginal reconstructive surgery. METHODS: This was an institutional review board-approved, double-blind placebo-controlled randomized trial. Women scheduled for reconstructive surgery including vaginal hysterectomy and ...

KOL-Index: 10032 . Introduction and HypothesisUnderstanding barriers to seeking care for pelvic floor disorders is necessary. We sought to assess familiarity with pelvic floor disorders, as well as identify screening and referral patterns among primary care providers.MethodsThis Institutional Review Board approved study was distributed through a secure online server (SurveyMonkey®). Primary care providers ...

KOL-Index: 9742 . OBJECTIVE: Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid with minimal side effects that may improve quality of recovery. We sought to evaluate standard use of this medication prior to vaginal reconstructive surgery. STUDY DESIGN: This was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of women undergoing vaginal reconstructive surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. Patients scheduled for an ...

KOL-Index: 9025 . OBJECTIVES: There is no standard of care for women sustaining an obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS). We sought to determine whether pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) would improve the quality of life and function in women 12 weeks after OASIS. METHODS: This institutional review board-approved randomized trial enrolled primiparous women 2 weeks after delivery complicated by OASIS. ...

KOL-Index: 6373 . BACKGROUND: In this study of patients undergoing vaginal hysterectomy with either robotic or vaginal prolapse repair, there was no difference in quality of life in the weeks following surgery; however, less narcotics were used, less pain was documented by nurses and Surgical Pain Scale (SPS), and better performance on voiding trials was noted in those undergoing robotic ...

KOL-Index: 4923 . OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to characterize pertinent anatomy relative to the sacral suture placed at time of robotic sacrocolpopexy using postoperative computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS: A vascular clip was placed at the base of the sacral suture at the time of robotic sacrocolpopexy. Six weeks postoperatively, subjects returned for a computed tomography scan and ...

KOL-Index: 4890 . OBJECTIVE: Placement of vaginal packing after pelvic reconstructive surgery is common; however, little evidence exists to support the practice. Furthermore, patients have reported discomfort from the packs. We describe pain and satisfaction in women treated with and without vaginal packing. METHODS: This institutional review board-approved randomized-controlled trial enrolled patients ...

KOL-Index: 4690 . OBJECTIVE: To compare several fracture risk-prediction models and their predictive values. METHODS: Women older than age 49 years were sent for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry screening between January 2007 and March 2009. Data collection included multiple osteoporosis risk factors. The ability to identify fractures was analyzed and compared using the North American Menopause Society 2006 ...

KOL-Index: 4441 . OBJECTIVE: We sought to compare the proportion of benign hysterectomies performed vaginally and the mean number of hysterectomies with resident involvement by route before and after robot implementation. STUDY DESIGN: This multicenter, retrospective cohort study using nonsynchronous controls was conducted through the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons Fellows' Pelvic Research Network. The ...

KOL-Index: 4180 . BACKGROUND: Vaginal and urethral histology is important to understanding the pathophysiology of the pelvic floor. METHODS: En bloc removal of 4 female cadaveric pelvises was performed, with 18 to 25 serial sections obtained from each. The vaginal and urethral lengths were divided into distal and proximal sections; urethra was divided into anterior and posterior segments as well. ...

KOL-Index: 3672 . OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare perioperative complications by route of hysterectomy before and after the introduction of robotic surgery. METHODS: This is an ancillary analysis of a multicenter, retrospective cohort study with historical controls through the Fellows' Pelvic Research Network. Hysterectomies performed for benign conditions were collected prior to ...

KOL-Index: 3371 . BACKGROUND: : Bowel injury is a rare but serious complication associated with tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) sling procedures. CASE: : A 50-year-old woman with a previous history of pelvic surgery underwent TVT for stress urinary incontinence. Surgery and the immediate postoperative period were unremarkable; however, she returned 5 months later with bloody, purulent discharge from a ...

KOL-Index: 3021 . INTRODUCTION: To investigate the changes in surgical route of hysterectomy after implementation of robotics and to assess the impact on the surgical training of gynecology residents. METHODS: This was an institutional review board-approved retrospective analysis at 2 large academic community hospitals. Subjects undergoing hysterectomy during 2005 and 2011 were identified. A stratified ...

KOL-Index: 2085 . OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to characterize male preferences of vulvar appearance, their awareness of labiaplasty, and their knowledge of genital anatomy. STUDY DESIGN: Men 18-80 years old were recruited via emails sent by an Internet provider to participate in a 27-question web-based survey. The questionnaire included images and queried demographics, men's familiarity with ...
