Lumbar mechanical traction: a biomechanical assessment of change at the lumbar spine.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2019 Apr 9;20(1):155. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Graduate School, International University of Health and Welfare, 4-1-26 Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 107-8402, Japan.

Background: Lumbar traction is a traditional treatment modality for chronic low back pain (CLBP) in many countries. However, its effectiveness has not been demonstrated in clinical practice because of the following: (1) the lack of in vivo biomechanical confirmation of the mechanism of lumbar traction that occurs at the lumbar spine; (2) the lack of a precise delivery system for traction force and, subsequently, the lack of reproducibility; and (3) few randomized controlled trials proving its effectiveness and utility.

Methods: This study was planned as a preparatory experiment for a randomized clinical trial, and it aimed (1) to examine the biomechanical change at the lumbar area under lumbar traction and confirm its reproducibility and accuracy as a mechanical intervention, and (2) to reconfirm our clinical impression of the immediate effect of lumbar traction.

Role of robotic surgery in functional urology.

Arch Esp Urol 2019 04;72(3):326-335

Hospital Universitario Rey Juan Carlos. Madrid. España.

Three-dimensional, high-definition images, small instruments with endowrist technology, ergonomic position and the easiness to teach, are possibly the main reasons why robotic surgery will continue to gain ground to others forms of surgery. The current applications of robotics in functional urology are: the correction of pelvic organ prolapse, the correction of female stress urinary incontinence (artificial urinary sphincter) and the treatment of chronic pelvic pain (pudendal nerveneurolysis). In this paper, we explain our robotic techniques in these three scenarios, as well as, provide the most updated data of our series. Read More

Consequences of interleukin 1β-triggered chronic inflammation in the mouse prostate gland: Altered architecture associated with prolonged CD4 infiltration mimics human proliferative inflammatory atrophy.

Prostate 2019 May 22;79(7):732-745. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland.

Background: Elevated expression of the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 1β (IL-1β) has been observed in expressed prostatic secretions of patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and genetic polymorphisms associated with the IL1B gene are linked to increased risk for aggressive prostate cancer.

Methods: To study the role of IL-1β expression in prostate inflammation, we examined IL1B expression in human prostatic proliferative inflammatory atrophy (PIA) lesions and developed a tetracycline-regulated human IL1B transgene in the mouse prostate.

Results: Here, we demonstrate that IL1B expression is a common finding in human PIA lesions, which harbored focal IL1B expression in epithelial and stromal compartments. Read More

[Management of tubo-ovarian abscesses and complicated pelvic inflammatory disease: CNGOF and SPILF Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases Guidelines].

Gynecol Obstet Fertil Senol 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Service de gynécologie, CMCO, pôle de gynécologie des hôpitaux universitaires de Strasbourg, 19, rue Louis-Pasteur, 67300 Schiltigheim, France.

A tubo-ovarian abscess (ATO) should be suspected in a context of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in case of severe pain associated with the presence of general signs and palpation of an adnexal mass at pelvic examination. Imaging allows most often a rapid diagnosis, by ultrasound or CT, the latter being irradiant but also allowing to consider the differential diagnoses (digestive or urinary diseases) in case of pelvic pain. MRI, non-irradiating examination, whenever it is feasible, provides relevant information, more efficient, guiding quickly the diagnosis. Read More

Endometrial cells contribute to preexisting endometriosis lesions in a mouse model of retrograde menstruation.

Biol Reprod 2019 Mar 14. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Endometriosis is characterized by extra-uterine growth of endometrial tissue accompanied by adverse clinical manifestations including chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Retrograde menstruation, the efflux of endometrium into the peritoneal cavity during menstruation, is believed to contribute to implantation of endometrial tissue and formation of endometriotic lesions at ectopic sites. While it is established through various rodent and non-human primate models that endometrial tissue fragments, as well as non-dissociated stroma and glands, are capable of seeding endometriosis in a manner mimicking retrograde menstruation, the ability of single endometrial cells to participate in endometriotic processes has not been evaluated due to their failure to establish macroscopic endometriosis.

Malakoplakia of the colon following renal transplantation in a 73 year old woman: report of a case presenting as intestinal perforation.

Diagn Pathol 2019 Mar 13;14(1):22. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Radiology, Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital, 5415 Boulevard de L'Assomption, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Background: Malakoplakia is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by tissue infiltrates of large granular macrophages containing distinctive intracytoplasmic inclusions termed Michaelis-Gutmann (MG) bodies. The genitourinary system is the most commonly involved site, followed by the gastrointestinal tract. Malakoplakia may occur as a complication of primary or secondary immunosuppression and, therefore, renal transplant recipients are at risk. Read More

Research Priorities in Pelvic Venous Disorders in Women: Recommendations from a Multidisciplinary Research Consensus Panel.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Mar 8. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Connecticut Image-Guided Surgery, Fairfield, Connecticut.

Pelvic venous disorders (PeVDs) in women can present with chronic pelvic pain, lower-extremity and vulvar varicosities, lower-extremity swelling and pain, and left-flank pain and hematuria. Multiple evidence gaps exist related to PeVDs with the consequence that nonvascular specialists rarely consider the diagnosis. Recognizing this, the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation funded a Research Consensus Panel to prioritize a research agenda to address these gaps. Read More

Imaging Appearance and Nonsurgical Management of Pelvic Venous Congestion Syndrome.

Radiographics 2019 Mar-Apr;39(2):596-608

From the Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Rochester, 200 First St SW, Rochester, MN 55905.

Pelvic venous congestion syndrome (PVCS) is a challenging and complex cause of chronic pelvic pain in female patients. PVCS due to incompetent vein valves is the combination of gonadal vein reflux and pelvic venous engorgement in patients with chronic pelvic pain without other causes. However, pelvic venous engorgement and gonadal vein reflux can be seen in patients without pelvic pain, which makes obtaining a detailed history and physical examination important for workup and diagnosis.
