Effect of vaginal estrogen in postmenopausal women using vaginal pessary for pelvic organ prolapse treatment: a randomized controlled trial.

Int Urogynecol J 2021 May 15. Epub 2021 May 15.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Introduction And Hypothesis: Evidence and recommendations for the use of intravaginal estrogen for prevention of bacterial vaginosis and pessary-related complications are limited and controversial. We hypothesized that adding intravaginal estrogen to pessary use would decrease the incidence of bacterial vaginosis and other pessary-related complications.

Methods: A single-center, open-label, randomized, parallel study was conducted between April 2018 and August 2020. Read More

Transient ureteric obstruction following pelvic floor reconstruction.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 May 13;14(5). Epub 2021 May 13.

Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Crewe, Cheshire, UK.

We describe the first reported case of transient distal ureteric obstruction attributed to post-surgical oedema in a patient with a solitary kidney. This occurred following combined pelvic floor repair and sacrospinous fixation for recurrent pelvic organ prolapse and manifested clinically as anuria, radiological hydroureter and acute kidney injury in the postoperative period. The transient nature of this obstruction, which was managed by a temporary percutaneous nephrostomy, indicates that it was caused by ureteric compression secondary to soft tissue oedema following surgery.

Uterosacral Ligament Hysteropexy for Uterine Didelphys: A Case Report.

J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA.

Surgical approach to pelvic organ prolapse (POP) has traditionally included hysterectomy; however, in the past decade, uterine sparing prolapse surgery (hysteropexy) has become increasingly popular within female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. The current literature demonstrates comparable outcomes for hysteropexy and traditional approach. As these procedures become more common, it is important to consider how to approach patients with unique anatomy such as uterine anomalies who desire uterine sparing surgery. Read More
