BACKGROUND: Maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity are growing public health concerns in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Severe Maternal Morbidity measure provides insight into processes underlying maternal mortality and may highlight modifiable risk factors for adverse maternal health outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the association between hypertensive disorders and severe maternal morbidity at a regional perinatal referral center...

BACKGROUND: Sexual dysfunction is prevalent in women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome after creation of a neo-vagina. Insight into the physiological response of the neo-vagina during sexual arousal is lacking, while this would help in the understanding of sexual function of these patients. The physiological sexual response of the vagina can be objectively measured by vaginal photoplethysmography assessing vaginal blood flow. OBJECTIVE(S): Testing whether the physiological and subjective sexual response in women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome with a neo-vagina differs from the response in women with a natal vagina...

Changes in the national drug laws have resulted in a marked increase in the number of individuals incarcerated in the US over the past several decades, and women have not been exempt from this trend. Incarcerated women who are pregnant and at risk of experiencing opioid withdrawal often lack access to opioid replacement therapy while in jails and prisons, and this treatment is necessary to prevent significant acute withdrawal which can be detrimental to maternal-fetal health. I contend that pregnant inmates who are at risk of experiencing opioid withdrawal possess a constitutional right to receive opioid replacement therapy while incarcerated, and failure to provide this treatment represents a violation of the Eighth Amendment's protection against cruel and unusual punishment...

Women in medicine have made strides towards equality and yet the gender gap continues to exist. Despite being the specialty dedicated to the promotion of women's health, Obstetrics and Gynecology is also marred by gender disparity. Obstetrician-gynecologists who are women continue to face barriers to advancement to leadership positions and earn $36,000 per year less than men in Obstetrics and Gynecology according to a recent study. Similarly, men in Obstetrics and Gynecology may be negatively affected by unconscious bias and socially prescribed roles for men and women, resulting in patient preferences for providers who are women...

BACKGROUND: There is limited data on when postpartum readmissions for thromboembolism occur after delivery hospitalizations on a population basis in the United States. OBJECTIVE: To characterize risk factors for and timing of postpartum venous thromboembolism (VTE) readmission after delivery hospitalization discharge. STUDY DESIGN: The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's Nationwide Readmissions Database for calendar years 2013 and 2014 was used to perform a retrospective cohort study evaluating risk for readmission for venous thromboembolism within 60 days of discharge from a delivery hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: The opioid epidemic in the United States is a public health emergency. Minimally invasive surgical technology has decreased length of hospital stay, improved postoperative recovery, and decreased postoperative pain. Hysterectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the United States. Increasing trends in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery are expected to reduce patients' postoperative pain. It is unclear whether this assumption has resulted in decreasing post-operative opioid prescriptions or patient need for these prescriptions, as prescribing patterns may be contributing to the current opioid public health emergency...

BACKGROUND: Clinical stigmata of polycystic ovary syndrome include hirsutism, obesity, menstrual disturbances and infertility. These symptoms impair health-related quality of life. Depression is also common. The relationship between depression, symptom self-perception and quality of life in polycystic ovary syndrome is poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between health-related quality of life and depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a secondary analysis of a multicenter, randomized clinical trial (Pregnancy in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome II, NCT00719186) comparing clomiphene citrate versus letrozole in the treatment of infertility...

Use of oral agents to treat gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) remains controversial. Recent recommendations from the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine (SMFM) assert that metformin may be a safe first line alternative to insulin for GDM treatment and preferable to glyburide. However, several issues should give pause to the widespread adoption of metformin use during pregnancy. Fetal concentrations of metformin are equal to maternal, and metformin can inhibit growth, suppress mitochondrial respiration, have epigenetic modifications on gene expression, mimic fetal nutrient restriction, and alter postnatal gluconeogenic responses...

BACKGROUND: While many studies have documented the high prevalence of burnout in practicing physicians and medical trainees, fewer reports describe burnout in academic leaders. In 2002, we observed a moderate-high to high level of burnout in 42.9% of chairs of academic departments of obstetrics and gynecology. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to identify trends in burnout and associated factors in today's OB/GYN chairs as they face complex changes to the current health care environment...

BACKGROUND: Although uterine size has been a previously cited barrier to minimally invasive hysterectomy, experienced gynecologic surgeons have been able to demonstrate that laparoscopic and vaginal hysterectomy is feasible with increasingly large uteri. By demonstrating that minimally invasive hysterectomy continues to have superior outcomes even with increased uterine weights, opportunity exists to meaningfully decrease morbidity, mortality, and cost associated with abdominal hysterectomy...

BACKGROUND: Myofascial pain is characterized by the presence of trigger points, tenderness to palpation, and local or referred pain, and commonly involves the pelvic floor muscles in men and women. Pelvic floor myofascial pain in the absence of local or referred pain has also been observed in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), and we have found that many patients report an improvement in these symptoms after receiving myofascial-targeted pelvic floor physical therapy. OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the literature for examination techniques used to assess pelvic floor myofascial pain in women...

BACKGROUND: Informed consent is an integral part of the preoperative counseling process. It is important that we know the best way to relay this information to patients undergoing surgery, specifically, hysterectomy. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether supplementing normal physician counseling with a video presentation improves patient comprehension during the informed consent process for hysterectomy. STUDY DESIGN: In a randomized, mixed factorial controlled trial, standard physician counseling (control arm) was compared to physician counseling plus video presentation (video arm) during the pre-hysterectomy informed consent process...

BACKGROUND: Opioids used for postoperative pain control after surgery have been associated with an increased risk of chronic opioid use. Hysterectomy is the most common major gynecologic procedure in the United States; however, we lack a data-driven definition of new persistent opioid use specific to hysterectomy. OBJECTIVE: 1) Determine a data-driven definition of new persistent opioid use among opioid naïve women undergoing hysterectomy; 2) Determine the prevalence of and risk factors for new persistent opioid use...

OBJECTIVES: ERAS protocols were developed for colorectal surgery to hasten post-op recovery. Variations of the protocol are being adopted for gynecologic procedures despite limited population and procedure-specific outcome data. Our objective was to evaluate if implementation of an ERAS pathway would facilitate reduced length of admission in an urogynecology population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective analysis of patients undergoing pelvic floor reconstructive surgery by 7 female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgeons we compared same day discharge, length of admission and post-op complications before and after implementation of an ERAS pathway at a tertiary-care hospital...
