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 intraperitoneal vaginal vault suspension, with general anesthesia and an overnight stay, were enrolled. The ...

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. After informed consent, all subjects underwent vaginal electromyography and anorectal manometry and ...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether patient-controlled analgesia or scheduled intravenous analgesia provides superior pain relief and satisfaction with pain control after vaginal reconstructive surgery.

STUDY DESIGN: Fifty-nine women scheduled for vaginal reconstructive surgery were enrolled in this randomized trial. Operative procedures and postoperative orders were standardized. Visual analog scales for pain and satisfaction with pain control were recorded during the hospital stay and 2 ...

Introduction and hypothesisIntra-vaginal diazepam suppositories are commonly prescribed as a treatment option for high-tone pelvic floor myalgia. This triple-blinded placebo-controlled randomized trial sought to determine if 10 mg diazepam suppositories improve resting pelvic floor electromyography (EMG) compared with placebo.MethodsWomen ≥18 years of age with hypertonic pelvic floor muscles on examination, confirmed by resting EMG ≥2.0 microvolts (μv), administered vaginal suppositories ...

INTRODUCTION: The female sexual response is dynamic; anatomic mechanisms may ease or enhance the intensity of orgasm.

AIM: The aim of this study is to evaluate the clitoral size and location with regard to female sexual function.

METHODS: This cross-sectional TriHealth Institutional Board Review approved study compared 10 sexually active women with anorgasmia to 20 orgasmic women matched by age and body mass index (BMI). Data included demographics, sexual history, serum hormone levels, ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate systemic markers of collagen metabolism and vitamin C in female smokers with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Secondary aims were to compare these levels in women based on prolapse or smoking history alone.

STUDY DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional study with four groups: smokers with POP, non-smokers with POP, smokers without POP and non-smokers without POP. Subjects were age-matched based on smoking history and presence of POP. All underwent a fasting blood panel, ...

Introduction and hypothesisThe objective of this study was determine the frequency of symptomatic perioperative venous thromboembolism (VTE) and risk factor(s) associated with VTE occurrence in women undergoing elective pelvic reconstructive surgery using only intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) for VTE prophylaxis.MethodsA multi-center case–cohort retrospective review was conducted at six clinical sites over a 66-month period. All sites utilize IPC as standard VTE prophylaxis for ...

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 undergoing vaginal hysterectomy with prolapse repairs. The primary outcome was visual analog scales ...

OBJECTIVES: Vesicovaginal fistulae (VVF) are the most commonly acquired fistulae of the urinary tract, but we lack a standardized algorithm for their management. The purpose of this multicenter study was to describe practice patterns and treatment outcomes of VVF in the United States.

METHODS: This institutional review board-approved multicenter review included 12 academic centers. Cases were identified using International Classification of Diseases codes for VVF from July 2006 through ...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires that all Ob/Gyn residents accomplish scholarly activity. We hypothesize resident productivity is poor.

METHODS: This was a web-based two-survey study using SurveyMonkey®. Surveys queried both program directors and residents regarding their adherence to ACGME guidelines. All 233 accredited Ob/Gyn programs were targeted.

RESULTS: 70 program directors responded (30.4%). The majority (99%) felt ...

INTRODUCTION: Female sexual dysfunction affects up to 43% of women in the United States and hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is the most common type; however, we lack treatment options showing improvement for this condition.

AIMS: To investigate whether acupuncture therapy could improve HSDD.

METHODS: Premenopausal women with a primary diagnosis of HSDD were included in a single-arm prospective pilot study that was approved by the institutional review board. After providing ...

INTRODUCTION: Despite its central role in sexual function, we lack a description of the nerve distribution and histology for the central components of the clitoris.

AIM: This study aims to characterize microscopic anatomy of the clitoral-urethral complex (CUC) and aid our understanding of sexual sensation

METHODS: The CUC was excised from three female fresh-frozen cadavers en bloc and prepared in 5-μm longitudinal sections with hematoxylin and eosin and S100 immunohistochemistry for ...

OBJECTIVES: Rectovaginal fistulae (RVFs) are often debilitating and there are no established treatment algorithms. We sought to describe current diagnosis and management strategies for RVFs across the United States.

METHODS: This institutional review board-approved multicenter retrospective study included 12 sites. Cases were identified using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision codes during a 5-year period. Demographics, management, and outcomes of RVF treatment were ...
