An Attachment Perspective on Partner Responses to Genito-pelvic Pain and Their Associations with Relationship and Sexual Outcomes.

J Sex Res 2020 May 20:1-13. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Psychology, Université de Montréal.

Although facilitative and negative partner responses are known to impact couples' adaptation to provoked vestibulodynia (PVD), a chronic genito-pelvic pain condition, it is still unknown what leads individuals to adopt or perceive such adaptative or detrimental behaviors. Attachment influences sexual and relationship adjustment, emotional reactivity and perceived support in romantic relationships, and as such could be associated with partner responses. This study aimed at examining the mediating role of facilitative and negative partner responses in the associations between attachment and relationship and sexual adjustment in 125 couples coping with PVD.

[Prostatic secretion microbiota: a comparative analysis of the hronical prostatitis II and IIIA category].

Urologiia 2020 Apr(2):16-22

Department of Urology and Human Reproductive Health, Rostov State Medical University, Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

Background: Chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome IIIa (CP/CPPS IIIa) are separate nosologies defined diagnostic verification criteria according to the NIH-NIDDK classification (1995). The identification of enterobacteria in the prostatic secretion (PS) has long been a criterion for the diagnosis of CBP, while PS in patients suffering CP/CPPS IIIa was considered as "sterile". However, the introduction of various methods of PS`s in-depth analysis and UPOINTS classification (2010) development with the allocation of site I (infection) allows us to consider the infectious factor as an etiological predictor of the initiation of inflammation in the prostate with CP/CPPS IIIa.

Clinical Utility of Presacral Neurectomy as an Adjunct to Conservative Endometriosis Surgery: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Controlled Studies.

Sci Rep 2020 Apr 23;10(1):6901. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Miller Scientific, Johnson City, TN, United States.

The objective of this review was to compare the efficacy and safety of conservative surgery with or without adjunctive presacral neurectomy (PN) for chronic endometriosis-related pelvic pain. In a systematic review with meta-analysis, randomized or nonrandomized controlled studies of conservative endometriosis surgery with or without adjunctive PN were included. Main outcomes were treatment failure (the proportion of women in which surgery failed to adequately resolve midline pain) and the frequency of operative and postoperative complications. Read More

Treatment of C-section diverticula with hysteroscopic resection in women without childbearing intention: a retrospective cohort study.

BMC Womens Health 2020 Apr 21;20(1):75. Epub 2020 Apr 21.

Institute of Pediatrics, Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center, Guangzhou Medical University, 9 Jinsui Road, Zhujiang Newtown, Tianhe District, Guangzhou, 510623, China.

Background: Diverticulum, one of the long-term sequelae of cesarean section, can cause abnormal uterine bleeding, dysmenorrhea and chronic pelvic pain. Hysteroscopic resection of diverticula is thought to reduce abnormal uterine bleeding and chronic pelvic pain. In this study, we aim to describe the improvement after hysteroscopic resection of cesarean section diverticula (CSD) in women without childbearing intention, and to explore the variables associated with poor prognosis.

Clinical guidelines for interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome.

Int J Urol 2020 Apr 14. Epub 2020 Apr 14.

Department of Urology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

The clinical guidelines for interstitial cystitis and related symptomatic conditions were revised by updating our previous guidelines. The current guidelines define interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome as a condition with chronic pelvic pain, pressure or discomfort perceived to be related to the urinary bladder accompanied by other urinary symptoms, such as persistent urge to void or urinary frequency in the absence of confusable diseases. The characteristic symptom complex is collectively referred as hypersensitive bladder symptoms. Read More

A prospective, single-centre, single-arm, open label study of the long term use of a gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (Triptorelin SR, 11.25 mg) in combination with Tibolone add-back therapy in the management of chronic cyclical pelvic pain.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2020 Apr 14;18(1):28. Epub 2020 Apr 14.

Academic Unit of Reproductive and Developmental Medicine, The University of Sheffield, The Jessop Wing, Tree Root Walk, Sheffield, S10 3HY, Sheffield, UK.

Background: Chronic cyclic pelvic pain (CCPP) affects women's quality of life and pituitary downregulation is often used for symptomatic relief. However, prolonged suppression of ovarian function is associated with menopausal side effects and can lead to osteoporosis. Currently, the use of gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists (GnRHa) for treatment of CCPP is usually restricted to 6-9 months, limiting their efficacy. Read More

The relationship between indicators of lumbo-pelvic coordination and pain, disability, pain catastrophizing and depression in patients presenting with non-chronic low back pain.

Ergonomics 2020 Jun 22;63(6):724-734. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

College of Engineering, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA.

This study examined associations and changes overtime in low back kinematics and disability, pain, pain catastrophizing, and depression and assessed whether associations and changes overtime varied between individuals who meet the classification criteria for chronic low back pain at 6 months and those who do not. Findings suggested that those persons with a higher ratio of lumbar contribution to thorax motion and smaller pelvic tilt during forward bending had higher scores on measures of disability, pain and pain catastrophizing. This same association was found in those who met classification criteria for chronic low back pain at 6 months. Read More
