Primary gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist therapy for suspected endometriosis: a nonsurgical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pelvic pain. (1/351)

Chronic pelvic pain is a condition that affects one in seven women of reproductive age in the United States. Direct and indirect medical costs associated with this condition are estimated to be more than $3 billion annually before factoring in the costs of diagnostic testing. At many medical centers, endometriosis is the most common single cause of chronic pelvic pain; other causes include intra-abdominal adhesions, chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, and adenomyosis. The current approach to diagnosis and treatment of chronic pelvic pain is a two-step approach, with medical history, physical examination, laboratory testing, and empiric therapy (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral contraceptives, and/or antibiotics) comprising Step 1 and surgical diagnosis with laparoscopy as Step 2. At many centers, the most common diagnosis at the time of laparoscopy for chronic pelvic pain is endometriosis, typically minimal to mild disease that can be effectively treated with hormonal therapy. Therefore, a rational alternative approach is a 3-month empiric course of therapy with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist before laparoscopy. The advantages of this approach are the high rate of pain relief in women, the possibility of avoiding an invasive procedure (laparoscopy), the ability to extend therapy, if pain is relieved, to the full 6-month therapeutic course of endometriosis, and a potentially lower cost relative to laparoscopy.  (+info)

Hypothesis on the role of sub-clinical bacteria of the endometrium (bacteria endometrialis) in gynaecological and obstetric enigmas. (2/351)

Unexplained infertility, recurrent abortion, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, premenstrual syndrome, premature labour, placental insufficiency and pre-eclampsia are examples of common obstetric and gynaecological problems that frequently defy adequate explanation. Bacterial vaginosis, a non-inflammatory condition, is associated with premature labour, but antibiotics administered topically provide less effective prophylaxis than those administered orally. This would indicate that bacterial vaginosis might be a marker for significant genital tract bacteria, but some pathology is dependent on micro-organisms ascending out of reach of topical antibiotics. The author was led to consider the hypothesis that micro-organisms, possibly those associated with bacterial vaginosis, surreptitiously inhabit the uterine cavity (bacteria endometrialis) where they are culprits of some common gynaecological and obstetric enigmas. The objective of this review is to provide an initial theoretical examination of this hypothesis. Bacteria in the endometrium have been associated with infertility. Antiphospholipids have been linked to recurrent miscarriage and pre-eclampsia and with infections including Mycoplasma. Pre-eclampsia might be explained by an exaggerated host response to intrauterine micro-organisms or bacterial toxins. The hypothesis that one common factor, bacteria endometrialis, could provide a plausible explanation for a variety of obstetric and gynaecological mysteries is particularly intriguing. There is sufficient evidence to justify further investigation.  (+info)

Low-dose danazol after combined surgical and medical therapy reduces the incidence of pelvic pain in women with moderate and severe endometriosis. (3/351)

The most effective therapy for endometriosis is a matter for debate. The aim of the present randomized study was to evaluate the efficacy of low doses of danazol on recurrence of pelvic pain in patients with moderate or severe endometriosis, who had undergone laparoscopic surgery and 6 months of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone analogue (GnRHa) therapy. After surgery, 28 patients with moderate or severe endometriosis underwent therapy for 6 months with GnRHa i. m. every 4 weeks. They were then randomized into two groups: group A (14 subjects) was treated with 100 mg/day danazol for 6 months; group B (14 subjects, control) did not receive any type of therapy. After 12 months of treatment, group A had a significantly (P < 0.01) lower pain score than group B. There was no significant difference between the groups in oestrogen concentrations, bone mineral density or side-effects. The results suggest that low-dose danazol therapy reduces recurrence of pelvic pain in patients with moderate or severe endometriosis, treated surgically, and has few or no metabolic side-effects.  (+info)

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome associated with multiple spinal meningeal cysts--case report. (4/351)

A 40-year-old female with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome was admitted because of a large pelvic mass. Radiological examination revealed multiple spinal meningeal cysts. The first operation through a laminectomy revealed that the cysts originated from dilated dural sleeves containing nerve roots. Packing of dilated sleeves was inadequate. Finally the cysts were oversewed through a laparotomy. The cysts were reduced, but the postoperative course was complicated by poor wound healing and diffuse muscle atrophy. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome associated with spinal cysts may be best treated by endoscopic surgery.  (+info)

Modeling of medical and surgical treatment costs of chronic pelvic pain: new paradigms for making clinical decisions. (5/351)

Additional complexity has been added to the healthcare decision-making process by the socioeconomic constraints of the industry and a population that is increasingly educated about healthcare. As a result, decisions balanced on the basis of outcomes and economic realities are needed. This modeling of surgical versus medical treatment costs for chronic pelvic pain and endometriosis factors in the large number of women with chronic pelvic pain, direct and indirect costs of the condition, and clinical benefits, projected costs, and savings of the therapies. This process of calculation becomes an aid for decision making in the current healthcare system.  (+info)

Evaluation of Lovelace Health Systems chronic pelvic pain protocol. (6/351)

Although laparoscopy has been considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of endometriosis, it often fails to detect the disease and provide lasting pain relief. Motivated by concerns for patient well-being, treatment efficacy, and cost containment, Lovelace Health Systems of Albuquerque, New Mexico, turned to the Lovelace Chronic Pelvic Pain Protocol, based on a chronic pelvic pain algorithm used to identify potential candidates for therapy with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist). Since the protocol's introduction in January 1997, empiric therapy with GnRH agonist has proved beneficial to patients, physicians, and healthcare system budgets.  (+info)

The active straight leg raising test and mobility of the pelvic joints. (7/351)

Objective signs to assess impairment in patients who are disabled by peripartum pelvic girdle pain hardly exist. The purpose of this study was to develop a clinical test to quantify and qualify disability in these patients. The study examined the relationship between impaired active straight leg raising (ASLR) and mobility of pelvic joints in patients with peripartum pelvic girdle pain, focusing on (1) the reduction of impairment of ASLR when the patient was wearing a pelvic belt, and (2) motions between the pubic bones measured by X-ray examination when the patient was standing on one leg, alternating left and right. Twenty-one non-pregnant patients with peripartum pelvic girdle pain in whom pain and impairment of ASLR were mainly located on one side were selected. ASLR was performed in the supine position, first without a pelvic belt and then with a belt. The influence of the belt on the ability to actively raise the leg was assessed by the patient. Mobility of the pelvic joints was radiographically visualized by means of the Chamberlain method. Assessment was blinded. Ability to perform ASLR was improved by a pelvic belt in 20 of the 21 patients (binomial two-tailed P = 0.0000). When the patient was standing on one leg, alternating the symptomatic side and the reference side, a significant difference between the two sides was observed with respect to the size of the radiographically visualized steps between the pubic bones (binomial two-tailed P = 0.01). The step at the symptomatic side was on average larger when the leg at that side was hanging down than when the patient was standing on the leg at that side. Impairment of ASLR correlates strongly with mobility of the pelvic joints in patients with peripartum pelvic girdle pain. The ASLR test could be a suitable instrument to quantify and qualify disability in diseases related to mobility of the pelvic joints. Further studies are needed to assess the relationship with clinical parameters, sensitivity, specificity and responsiveness in various categories of patients. In contrast with the opinion of Chamberlain, that a radiographically visualized step between the pubic bones is caused by cranial shift of the pubic bone at the side of the standing leg, it is concluded that the step is caused by caudal shift of the pubic bone at the side of the leg hanging down. The caudal shift is caused by an anterior rotation of the hip bone about a horizontal axis near the sacroiliac joint.  (+info)

A systematic history for the patient with chronic pelvic pain. (8/351)

Chronic pelvic pain is a source of frustration to both the physician and the patient. Physicians have been ill equipped by their training to confront the multifaceted nature of the complaints of patients with chronic pelvic pain. Patients have experienced a repetitive dismissal of their complaints by physicians too busy in their practices to address their problems comprehensively. The approach to the patient with chronic pelvic pain must take into account six major sources of the origin of this pain: 1) gynecological, 2) psychological, 3) myofascial, 4) musculoskeletal, 5) urological, and 6) gastrointestinal. Only by addressing and evaluating each of these components by a very careful history and physical examination and by approaching the patient in a comprehensive manner can the source of the pain be determined and appropriate therapy be administered. This article was developed to provide the clinician with a set of tools and a methodology by which the patient with this complaint can be approached.  (+info)

BACKGROUND Prior study has shown that right paracolic adhesions are found in 90% of patients with chronic pelvic pain and less frequently in pain-free patients. We set out to determine whether paracolic adhesiolysis will reduce site-specific pain. METHODS This was a prospective, randomized trial of right paracolic adhesiolysis at the time of diagnostic and operative laparoscopy for chronic pelvic pain. Twenty-five patients with a diagnosis of chronic pelvic pain were randomized to either undergo or withhold lysis of right paracolic adhesions at the time of operative laparoscopy. RESULTS Right paracolic adhesions were found in 100% of our patients. For all subjects, there was a significant reduction of right and left lower quadrant pain (P|0.001) following the operative laparoscopy. Those who underwent right paracolic adhesiolysis had significantly greater right pelvic pain reduction than those who did not (P=0.014). There was no difference in the reduction of left or mid pelvic pain between the

Pelvic pain involves discomfort located in the lowest part of your abdomen and pelvis. Women who experience pelvic pain might refer to symptoms arising from the reproductive, digestive, urinary, and/or musculoskeletal sources. Pelvic pain can be sharp or dull, mild, moderate or severe, and short- or long-term. It can be a constant pain or come and go pain. At times, the pain may radiate down the lower back, thighs, or buttocks. With pelvic pain, you may notice the pain during sexual activity or while urinating. Some pain in the pelvic area can come on suddenly and be brief yet sharp. which is an acute pain. Chronic (long-term) is any constant or intermittent pelvic pain that lingers six months or more.. Incidence/Prevalence/Statistics. Chronic pelvic pain is common, affecting around 1 in 7 women. In a study of women who were reproductive age, the prevalence rate of pelvic pain was 39%. Addition, of all referrals to gynecologists, 10% are related to pelvic pain. In one study, Blacks had a ...
Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) presents with a variety of symptoms affecting multiple systems. There is no universal treatment that can be given to all patients with CPPS. The results of treatment depend greatly on an accurate diagnosis. A thorough clinical assessment, including a four-step plan, should include paying special attention to the musculoskeletal system. This assessment is not difficult to perform and provides valuable information on possible muscular problems and neuropathy. ...

Chronic pelvic pain with associated ovarian vein varicosities is termed pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) and is an important but under-diagnosed condition. The underlying aetiology of pelvic varicosities is reflux of blood in the ovarian veins. The primary defect is the absence of functioning valves within the ovarian veins, resulting in retrograde blood flow and eventual venous dilatation. Some cases of pelvic varicosities have been associated with mechanical compressive causes, such as uterine malposition, causing kinking of the ovarian vein, and the nutcracker syndrome. Hormonal influences may also affect the development of PCS. ...
There are many causes of pelvic pain, some of which can be detected with imaging techniques; in other cases, the cause of pain remains uncertain even after laparoscopy. One of the most common causes of acute and/or recurrent pelvic pain is associated with hemorrhage into functional ovarian cysts or endometriomas. In one study, only 63% of women undergoing laparoscopy for pelvic pain had abnormal findings using direct inspection.1 Conversely, 18% of women with pain and abnormal pelvic examinations had no abnormalities at laparoscopy. In this correlative study of women with pelvic pain who underwent laparoscopy, ovarian abnormalities accounted for approximately 10%, 27% had pelvic adhesions, 22% had pelvic inflammatory disease, and 3% had unsuspected endometriomas. Thus, functional or dynamic disorders may be the cause of pelvic pain; there is not always correlation between the presence of pelvic pain and an anatomic abnormality of the pelvic organs. ...

Most women experience pelvic pain at some time during their lives. Many times pelvic pain is just the normal functioning of the reproductive or other organs. Other times pelvic pain may indicate a serious problem that needs urgent treatment. Here we look at the causes of pelvic pain, and how the cause of pelvic pain is determined.
You say skin rolling. I say connective tissue manipulation. Tomato…tomahto; semantics aside, lets talk about what it is and what it has to do with pelvic pain.. Skin rolling or connective tissue manipulation as Ill be referring to it throughout this post, is a major component of our pelvic pain treatment technique here at PHRC. Thats because in our experience treating pelvic pain patients-both male and female-more often than not, when there is pelvic pain, there will be some level of connective tissue restriction.. Before we delve into the connection (wink) between connective tissue restriction and pelvic pain, lets first explore exactly what connective tissue is.. Connective tissue is one of the four general classes of biological tissues-the others being epithelial, muscular, and nervous tissues. The job of connective tissue is to support, connect, or separate different types of tissue and organs.. Bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage are all considered connective tissue. ...

Chronic pelvic pain in women can be caused by various pathologies, such as endometriosis, fibroids, and adhesions. Surgical treatment of the pathology often relieves the pain, but a significant number of women continue to have pain, even after visibly successful surgery. One model explored in this study is that in some cases of chronic pelvic pain, the central nervous system has changed in its processing of pain-related signals, requiring a therapy directed to the CNS to effectively treat the pain. This model has been supported in studies of other chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia and migraine. This study will seek to determine whether the analgesic effectiveness of duloxetine is related to the pain state of the individual ...
OBJECTIVE: To ascertain whether a small sample of patients with chronic pelvic pain experienced any pain-related cognitions in the form of mental images. PATIENTS: Ten women with chronic pelvic pain consecutively referred from a tertiary referral center by the physicians in charge of their treatment. OUTCOME MEASURES: An interview was used to determine the presence, emotional valence, content, and impact of cognitions about pain in the form of mental images and verbal thoughts. The Brief Pain Inventory (BPI), Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS), Spontaneous Use of Imagery Scale (SUIS), and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) were completed. RESULTS: In a population of patients with a prolonged duration of pain and high distress, all patients reported experiencing cognitions about pain in the form of mental images. For each patient, the most significant image was both negative in valence and intrusive. The associated emotional-behavioral pattern could be described within a cognitive behavioral

Because ovarian sex steroids fluctuations during the menstrual cycle are implicated in the pathogenesis of the endometriosis-related chronic pelvic pain (CPP), the oral contraceptives (OCs) are used with non-contraceptive indication for this disorder.. To date, OCs are widely used as medical treatment in patients with endometriosis, in addition, they are recently experimented as post-surgical therapy. Traditional cyclic regimen, with 21 days of active pills with 7 days of placebo or suspension, is usually adopted. Furthermore, recent studies suggested that long-term continuous OCs use can be effective in the postoperative period both as second- and third- line treatments after cyclic regimen failure. In these studies a combined treatment with ethinilestradiol (0.02 mg) plus desogestrel (0.15 mg) were used and compared with baseline or ciproterone acetate.. A recent study showed a deeper ovarian and endometrial suppression with continuous OCs in comparison with cyclic OCs, providing a ...
The aim of this information is to give those suffering from and those interested in pelvic pain a brief overview of the literature about quality of life and pelvic pain.. There is increasing evidence indicating that pelvic pain has a significant impact on quality of life. There is also a long delay in diagnosis for those suffering from many of these conditions. The delay before surgical diagnosis of symptomatic deep infiltrating endometriosis was significantly longer for patients with advanced stage IV (revised American Society for Reproductive Medicine [ASRM] score ,70) disease than for those with stage I, II, III, or IV (revised ASRM score ,or=70) disease ( Matsuzaki S 2006). In the case of endometriosis the delay is around 7 years in the UK for patients who present with pain symptoms: generally severe period pain. It appears that in many cases primary care can be a barrier to appropriate referral with patients consulting over many years with severe period pain.. There are a few published ...
1. Chiropractic Care. A 2015 case study published in The Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that chiropractic care was effective in reducing pelvic pain associated with pubic symphysis diatasis. This is when the pubic bones are separated or dislocated. In the study, a 30-year-old woman reported severe pelvic pain seven days after childbirth. The pain was a constant, dull ache at the pelvic area with the pain becoming severe at times. The woman reported that the pelvic pain interfered with walking and lifting either leg. She also experienced pain at the lower back that radiated to both of her thighs..

About 7 to 10 percent of women in their lifetime will be diagnosed with endometriosis, but that rate is even higher - up to 80 percent - for patients with chronic pelvic pain. The exact incidence of the disease is thought to be underestimated because the only way to positively diagnose endometriosis is by laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery. Many women will never know they have endometriosis because they think they have to live with the pain.. Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue, similar to the cells of the lining of the uterus, grow in other areas of the body. The most commonly affected areas are the ovaries, bowel or the lining of the pelvis. This abnormal growth can cause pelvic pain, irregular bleeding and infertility.. Since the growth of endometriosis depends on the presence of estrogen, the disease impacts women of reproductive age. Most women are diagnosed in their 20s.. Symptoms include chronic pelvic pain, painful menstruation, irregular vaginal bleeding and pain with ...

Endometriosis describes deposits of ectopic endometrium outside the uterus. Traditionally, gynaecologists believe that these deposits of endometrium bleed during your period and cause pain. A better explanation is that the pain is caused by injuries to your pelvic nerves and the endometrium simply attaches to areas of injury in your pelvis. These injuries are caused by difficult first labours, straining on the toilet, and, gynaecological surgery (GS Atwal, 2005).. Endometriosis was first described in 1860 though it has had many reincarnations since that date. The theory associated with deposits of ectopic endometrium has, therefore, had 150 years to cement itself into medical minds and habits. Injured nerves were discovered in 2005 ! So it is going to take a little while to change hearts and minds ? And it is not going to be easy because many doctors make very large sums of money ablating, or excising, ectopic endometrium.. What is the evidence that ectopic endometrium causes cyclical, ...

Egyptian Society Of Chronic Pelvic Pain In Women ( Established 2003) Hold The First Conference Prospects of Chronic Pelvic Pain In Women In Developing Countries Chronic Pelvic Pain in Women (CPPW) is a common debilitating disease or symptom, and can reduce the quality of life and general wellbeing. CPPW has often been described as a major womens health issue. Incidence is high as 25 % and more, i.e. at least one quarter of women in any society have CPPW. In the developing countries there is no standard effective medical systemic approach and no well trained medical persons can deal specifically with CPPW. The Conference will discuss most of causes of Chronic Pelvic Pain In Women like chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, endometrioses, pelvic masses ( benign and malignant ), uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and masses, pelvic congestion, pelvic organs prolapse, dyspareunia, dysmenorrhea, pelvic adhesions, abnormal

Recently we received a question from a reader asking us to describe what a typical good pelvic floor physical therapy session is like.. Its a question Im sure every pelvic pain patient prescribed PT has thought about. Currently, there is no standard of care for pelvic pain PT. So unfortunately, patients get PT ranging from good to mediocre to inadequate to a complete waste of time. The hope is that when patients begin to push for the best standard of care, change will occur. The problem is that the majority of patients have no idea where the bar should be set when it comes to pelvic pain PT. Going into it they get very little, if any, information from their prescribing physicians, who themselves often have little knowledge of the treatment.. This brings us back to the original question: What is a typical good pelvic floor PT session like? With this post, we plan to answer that question by giving a play-by-play description of both an evaluation appointment at our clinic and a typical ...

Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) can be defined as intermittent or constant pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis of at least six months duration, not occurring exclusively with menstruation or intercourse and not associated with pregnancy. It is estimated to affect approximately one in six of the adult female population.. CPP may be a symptom of a number of different conditions which may present as pelvic symptoms including gynaecological (e.g. endometriosis), urinary tract (e.g. interstitial cystitis), digestive (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome [IBS]) and musculoskeletal disorders. Psychological factors also play an important role in CPP with many women reporting histories of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.. The conventional treatment of CPP may be of limited effectiveness and as a consequence women with CPP may seek non-conventional approaches to manage their symptoms. This review considers the evidence surrounding the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as a treatment for CPP, ...

Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis or chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a pelvic pain condition in men, and should be distinguished from other forms of prostatitis such as chronic bacterial prostatitis and acute bacterial prostatitis. This condition was formerly known as prostatodynia (painful prostate). CP/CPPS and interstitial cystitis are sometimes referred to jointly as UCPPS (urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome). Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is characterized by pelvic or perineal pain without evidence of urinary tract infection, lasting longer than 3 months, as the key symptom. Symptoms may wax and wane. Pain can range from mild to debilitating. Pain may radiate to the back and rectum, making sitting uncomfortable. Pain can be present in the perineum, testicles, tip of penis, pubic or bladder area. Dysuria, arthralgia, myalgia, unexplained fatigue, abdominal pain, constant burning pain in the penis, and frequency may all be ...
Antibiotics are widely prescribed and are, for many physicians, considered the first line therapy for patients with CP/CPPS. Despite its widespread use, there are only three small randomized controlled trials recorded in the literature [12], [ 13], [14]. These trials investigated the use of ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and tetracycline. One study investigating a four-week trial of tetracycline as compared to placebo showed significant benefit for CP/CPPS patients; however its authors judged quality of the study to be poor. Trials investigating the use of levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin showed significant benefit, but were underpowered when trying to establish an antibiotic effect as compared to placebo. The 12-week trial of tetracycline vs placebo yielded significant benefit, however, its results were marred by quality issues - including small numbers, selected patients, and anti-nanobacterial therapy which included tetracycline. Clinical evidence does not support the empiric use of antibiotics ...

Both acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis occur in approximately 5% to 10% of men with symptoms related to prostatitis. Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome is the most common type, occurring in approximately 90% of symptomatic men [60]. These three types of prostatitis are addressed here; asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis is an incidental finding during evaluation of another genitourinary condition such as prostate cancer or infertility [61].. It has been estimated that prostatitis accounts for approximately 2 million outpatient visits per year in the United States, with a direct cost of care of nearly $4,000 per patient per year [61]. The condition can have a substantial impact on the quality of life, causing pain and sexual dysfunction, as well as decreased libido and erectile and ejaculatory dysfunction [62,63].. Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome has the greatest impact on the quality of life of all types of prostatitis. Studies have found that ...
INTRODUCTION. Prostatitis annually accounts for an estimated 2 million outpatient visits in the USA. It is one of the most common disorders seen in urology practices. Of the 4 categories of prostatitis, chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is the most frequently diagnosed; it is thought to account for 90-95% of cases among all prostatitis categories [1].. Chronic prostatitis/CPPS is characterized by episodic and potentially very intense organ-specific complaints that include perineal pain, urinary burning, and pain upon ejaculation. As with other chronic pain conditions, it is also associated with nonorgan-specific complaints, including fatigue, irritable bowels, and depressed mood. In patients with severe forms of the disorder, symptoms can be durable and ruinous to the patients quality of life because they may interfere with virtually all physical, emotional, cognitive, and social functions.. The relief afforded by most treatments for chronic prostatitis/CPPS is ...
MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL, Prostatitis Treatment Web of Science, CBM, CNKI, Wang-Fang Database, JCRM, and CiNii were searched from their inception through 30 November 2015. Grey literature databases and websites were also searched. No language limits were applied.Only randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with CP/CPPS treated by acupuncture were included. Two reviewers extracted data and assessed the risk of bias of RCTs using the Cochrane Risk of Bias Tools, respectively.Seven trials were included, involving 471 participants. The result of meta-analysis indicated that compared with sham acupuncture (MD: -6.09 [95%CI: -8.12 to -5.68]) and medicine (Levofloxacinand, Ibuprofen, and Tamsulosin) (MD: -4.57 [95%CI: -7.58 to -1.56]), acupuncture was more effective at decreasing the total NIH-CPSI score. Real acupuncture was superior to sham acupuncture in improving Prostatitis (pain, voiding) and quality of life (Qof) domain subscores. Compared to sham acupuncture and medicine, acupuncture appears to be ...
Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), commonly encountered in urologic practice, carries with it a stigma of poor understanding, ineffective treatment, and significant financial and quality of life burden.
Inflammation is a major contributor to chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and inflammation is usually the result of another cause.

The three most common and definable conditions encountered clinically are urinary incontinence, anal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. ...
The pathogenesis of prostatitis is not completely understood. An infection ascending from the urethra, chemical damage caused by the reflux of urine through the ejaculatory and prostatic ducts and autoimmune involvement are a few possible theories related to the pathogenesis of various types of prostatitis.[1][2] Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome is thought to be caused by an abnormality in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and hormonal derangements involving the adrenocortical hormone that can stem from variable response to stress, neurogenic inflammation, and myofascial pain syndrome. On microscopic examination, neutrophils or lymphocytes can be seen inside the prostate gland, among the cells of the epithelium or inside the stromal component of the gland.[3][4] ...

Patients with interstitial cystitis experience an unpleasant sensation (pain, pressure, discomfort) perceived to be related to the urinary bladder that lasts longer than six weeks in the absence of infection or other identifiable causes. The symptoms can vary greatly between individuals and even for the same person throughout the month, including urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia, pressure and/or pelvic pain. People with severe cases of IC/BPS may urinate as many as 60 times a day.. Physicians may refer to IC with a variety of names, including: bladder pain syndrome (Europe), hypersensitive bladder syndrome (Japan), urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome (research studies) or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). In the United States, it is commonly referred to as IC/BPS.. Pain levels can range from mild tenderness to intense, agonizing pain. Pain typically worsens as the bladder fills with urine and is then relieved after urination. Pain may also radiate to the lower back, upper legs, vulva ...
A combination of postural changes, baby, unstable pelvic joints under the influence of pregnancy hormones, and changes in the centre of gravity can all add to the varying degrees of pain or discomfort. In some cases it can come on suddenly or following a fall, sudden abduction of the thighs (opening too wide too quickly) or an action that has strained the joint. PGP can begin as early as the first trimester of pregnancy. Pain is usually felt low down over the symphyseal joint, and this area may be extremely tender to the touch. Pain may also be felt in the hips, groin and lower abdomen and can radiate down the inner thighs. Women suffering from PGP may begin to waddle or shuffle, and may be aware of an audible clicking sound coming from the pelvis. PGP can develop slowly during pregnancy, gradually gaining in severity as the pregnancy progresses. During pregnancy and postpartum, the symphyseal gap can be felt moving or straining when walking, climbing stairs or turning over in bed; these ...
The present was a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that included 50 women aged 18-45 years old with diagnosis of deeply infiltrating endometriosis based on magnetic resonance imaging or transvaginal ultrasound after bowel preparation, and score ≥ 5 on a visual analogue scale (VAS: range 0 to 10) for endometriosis-associated pelvic pain. Potentized estrogen (12cH, 18cH and 24cH) or placebo was administered twice daily per oral route. The primary outcome measure was change in the severity of EAPP global and partial scores (VAS) from baseline to week 24, determined as the difference in the mean score of five modalities of chronic pelvic pain (dysmenorrhea, deep dyspareunia, non-cyclic pelvic pain, cyclic bowel pain and/or cyclic urinary pain). The secondary outcome measures were mean score difference for quality of life assessed with SF-36 Health Survey Questionnaire, depression symptoms on Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and anxiety symptoms on Beck Anxiety Inventory ...

Pelvic Pain in Pregnancy is very common and can affects 1 in 4 pregnant women and comes with a wide array of symptoms that vary from woman to woman.. This pain is called Pelvic Girdle Pain [PGP] or formerly known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction [SPD]. This condition is treatable in most cases and can safely be treated during pregnancy. It can be treated at any point and time whether during or after your pregnancy.. If you notice pelvic pain, it is good to contact your doctor and ask for treatment. It is mostly recognized as a mechanical joint issue that should be treated as early as possible, and it can occur at any stage during your pregnancy. Pelvic Girdle Pain can come on suddenly or gradually and will occasionally get better after a couple days of rest, however the pain will generally come back and treatment is highly suggested.. ...
Blood Clots (Arterial Venous) Overview. Blood clotting can be and is a very important natural process in which platelets, fibrin, blood cells and various components of blood clump together to stop bleeding after a blood vessel or your skin has been injured.Pelvic congestion syndrome is therefore a painful condition often caused by dilatation of the ovarian and/or pelvic veins(rather like varicose veins but in the pelvis) Varicose veins are commonly seen in the legs when the veins become less elastic and the valves that stop the blood from flowing backwards stop working. This causes the blood to pool, due to gravity, causing enlarged, bulging and knotty veins. This is also what happens to the pelvic veins in pelvic venous congestion syndrome.Varicose veins from the pelvis are often missed by vein doctors - The Whiteley Clinic is a leading centre in the world for pelvic varicose vein treatments.The diagnosis of pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) continues to challenge all physicians involved ...
We reported two diverse cases of CPP - one had classic neuropathic pain (NP) and was resistant to medical treatment and one had myofascial syndrome of the abdominal wall muscles; both were treated with electro-acupuncture. The intervention was judged successful with long standing effects.. Chronic pelvic pain is a quite common, multifactorial clinical entity. Aside from gynecologic origin in women, it is important for the clinician to seek for other possible causes including NP and neuromuscular pelvic system disorders.. Acupuncture was proposed by World Health Organization (WHO) in 1982 as a potential treatment for NP.6 In our case, we chose a standardized protocol that is considered appropriate for CPP and potentially is equally effective to personalized approaches.7,8. Acupuncture and electro-acupuncture convey their analgesic effect through release of endorphins, encephalins, dynorphins, prostaglandins, serotonin and ACTH at the central nervous system.

Reports on varicose veins, proximal venous outflow obstruction as in May Thurner Syndrome, and gonadal vein reflux resulting in varicocele or pelvic congestion syndrome have described these venous conditions primarily as separate and unrelated. This case suggests that in at least some selected patients, there may be a possible interrelationship between these three venous conditions. The varicocele, a male equivalent of the female pelvic congestion syndrome, is due to reflux in the left testicular vein or gonadal vein. Several causes of gonadal vein reflux have been reported including a venous outflow obstruction in the left renal vein as seen in the Nutcracker syndrome and a quantitative and/or functional abnormality in the venous valves within the gonadal vein. Many of these patients are asymptomatic, but varicocele has been reported as a contributory cause of infertility in male. The bag of worms is the classic physical finding associated with varicocele, but the condition may not be easily ...
Pregnancy-related lumbopelvic pain affects approximately 50% of all pregnant women. For the majority the pain disappears during the first months after delivery; however, for a significant number of women, the pain is persistent, with little improvement for more than three months after delivery. Moreover, women who experience persistent lumbopelvic pain three months postpartum are at substantial risk for new episodes or for chronic lumbopelvic pain later in life. Hence, pregnancy-related lumbopelvic pain should be considered a major public health issue. In order to develop and offer specific treatment strategies, it is important to identify different subgroups of lumbopelvic pain based on different clinical presentations. Pelvic girdle pain (PGP) is one of the major subgroups of pain related to pregnancy. There is no consensus regarding the underlying mechanisms although instability in the pelvis has been proposed as one of the possible mechanism; thus, further studies are necessary to determine ...

Symphyseal width was assessed in 15 non-pregnant females using radiography and ultrasonography. Regression equation: y = 0.98x + 0.30 (mm), r2 = 0.72. The latter technique was used in subsequent studies.. Symphyseal width at onset of labour in 24 women was on average 6.0 mm for those with and 5.5 mm for those without pelvic pain. A second measurement was obtained from 16 of those women when the fetal head was at the ischiadic spines. The average symphyseal distension was 0.2 mm and 1.1 mm, respectively (p=0.02).. In a cohort of 49 women, symphyseal width was assessed at 12 and 35 weeks of pregnancy and at 5 months post partum. Those with disabling pain during pregnancy and none at follow-up (n=6) had wider symphyses as 35 weeks (6.3 mm) than controls (n=33) (4.5 mm) (p,0.001).. A cross-sectional analysis at 35 weeks of pregnancy of the above 49 women and 19 consecutive referral cases with severe pelvic pain, showed a mean symphyseal with of 4.5 mm for controls (n=38), compared to 5.7 mm for ...
