Marsupialization versus Word catheter in the treatment of Bartholin cyst or abscess: retrospective cohort study

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2022 06 21;23(2):71-74. Epub 2022 Mar 21.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Acıbadem University Faculty of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey

Objective: Bartholin cysts or abscesses are observed in approximately 2% of women, usually in their reproductive years. Although none of the treatments appear to be superior, there are several options including drainage with basic incision, Word catheter application, marsupialization, silver nitrate application, and excision. The primary outcome in this study was to evaluate the recurrence rates in patients who underwent marsupialization or Word catheter for the treatment of Bartholin cyst or abscesses, and the secondary outcome was to evaluate the rates of patient satisfaction.

Bartholin Gland Abscess Diagnosis and Office Management.

Prim Care 2021 Dec 14;48(4):569-582. Epub 2021 Oct 14.

Department of Family and Community Medicine, University of Missouri, Columbia, M224 Medical Sciences Building, DC032.00, Columbia, MO 65212, USA.

While Bartholin gland abscesses are less commonly seen outpatient pathology, prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to preventing serious complications such as sepsis and rectovaginal fistula. Owing to an unacceptably high recurrence rate, simple incision and drainage is insufficient for primary treatment; preferably, placement of a Word catheter or Jacobi ring device to reepithelize the duct may be done under local anesthesia in an outpatient clinic. Destruction of the gland through silver nitrate application or alcohol sclerotherapy is an alternative. Read More

Rev Fac Cien Med Univ Nac Cordoba 2020 12 13;77(4):345-350. Epub 2020 Dec 13.

Estudiante de internado - CAJA NACIONAL DE SALUD-Universidad Mayor de San Andrés.

Introduction: Bartholin's glands, also known as major vestibular glands, are responsible for a large number of gynecological diseases of the vulva. Bartholin's gland cysts and abscesses can present with different symptoms and the required surgical management should be marsupialization and not incision and drainage. Although the incision and drainage procedure was shown to be relatively quick and easy to perform, and the cure rate is rapid among patients receiving this type of surgical technique, it has nevertheless been shown that the recurrence trend has increased.

Bartholin Duct Cyst and Gland Abscess: Office Management.

Am Fam Physician 2019 06;99(12):760-766

Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA.

The Bartholin glands, located in the base of the labia minora, have a role in vaginal lubrication. Because of the presence of other glands, removal of a Bartholin gland does not affect lubrication. Ductal blockage of these typically pea-sized structures can result in enlargement of the gland and subsequent development of Bartholin duct cysts or gland abscesses. Read More

Clinical and microbiological features of Bartholin's gland abscess in pregnant and non-pregnant women.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2021 Apr 16;34(7):1127-1132. Epub 2019 Jun 16.

Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Soroka University Medical Center, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel.

Objective: The data regarding microbiological and clinical characteristics of Bartholin gland abscesses during pregnancy is limited. Given the hormonal and physiological changes during pregnancy we aimed to examine whether a difference exists in the clinical and microbiological features of Bartholin's gland abscess during pregnancy and the puerperium as compared with nonpregnant patients. In addition, we aim to evaluate whether a Bartholin's gland abscess during pregnancy is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. Read More

Placement of a Word catheter is the most frequently employed technique for office and emergency department (ED) management. However, many institutions do not have the Word catheter available; in addition, the catheter has a tendency to dislodge before epithelialization, leading to recurrence of the cyst. Read More
