Opioid abuse and dependence continues to rise in both the general population and pregnancy, with opioid overdose deaths having quadrupled in the last 15 years. Illicit drug use in last 30 days of pregnancy was over 4% with almost 0.6% documented maternal opiate use at time of birth. The management of the opioid-tolerant, buprenorphine-dependent or methadone-dependent patient in the peripartum period is reviewed. Options for treatment of opioid dependence, acute pain management, and perioperative multimodal analgesia are discussed...

Clinicians managing obstetric patients are dependent on valid hemodynamic measurements to guide care. Heart rate and noninvasive blood pressure guide most current care. New hemodynamic monitors are being used to report research findings and are being investigated by clinicians for their value to supplement standard monitoring. These include arterial pulse contour analysis, Doppler velocimetry, and bioimpedance among others. This chapter serves to present these new devices with a critical review of their advantages and limitations, and most importantly the validity of their measurements...

Minimally invasive surgery continues to transform the field of gynecologic oncology and has now become the standard of care for many early-stage malignancies. The proven benefits of minimally invasive surgery are driving the rapid introduction and dissemination of novel technologies and the increasing ability to perform even the most complex procedures less invasively. In this article, we will review the current literature on traditional multiport laparoscopy, robotic-assisted laparoscopy, laparoendoscopic single-site surgery as well as robotic-assisted laparoendoscopic single-site surgery, with a specific focus on their role in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies...

Operative hysteroscopy is a safe and effective minimally invasive treatment option for submucosal and intramural leiomyomas. We discuss preoperative evaluation, fluid management, postoperative complications, preventative measures, and hysteroscopic outcomes. Technical instructions and tips for successful hysteroscopy, as well as the various equipment options most commonly utilized in the United States, are also reviewed.

Review of literature is conducted to determine the best minimally invasive hysterectomy (MIH) route for large uterus, identify preoperative considerations and describe alternative techniques to power morcellation. Studies after 2010 revealed multiple MIH approaches. Vaginal hysterectomy is preferred over laparoscopic and laparoscopic assistance with less operative time and hospital cost. In morbidly obese patients with large uteri, total laparoscopic hysterectomy is superior to vaginal hysterectomy with lesser odds of blood transfusion and lower length of hospital stay...

Endometriosis is a common disease affecting reproductive age women. Pain is one of the most common symptoms associated with endometriosis. When medical therapy has failed or in known deeply infiltrating endometriosis, surgical management is warranted. Laparoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. Recent developments in surgery have shown the feasibility of robotic surgery for endometriosis, although these methods have not been shown to be superior to conventional laparoscopy...

Once the decision to perform a hysterectomy has been made, the type and route of hysterectomy must be chosen, and efforts made to accomplish the surgery as safely as possible. Hysterectomy can be performed vaginally, abdominally with laparoscopic or robotic assistance, or open. The main goal of gynecologic surgeons should be to lower the rate of open abdominal hysterectomy and increase use of both vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy in their patients. We discuss efforts to accomplish a greater use of minimally invasive hysterectomy...

Uterovaginal prolapse may be treated with or without concomitant hysterectomy. Many patients express interest in uterine-sparing prolapse procedures, for which there are increasing evidence available regarding techniques and outcomes. Uterine-sparing procedures to treat uterovaginal prolapse require a unique set of surgical considerations including uterine abnormalities, possibility of occult malignancy, and future pregnancy. Data, including randomized controlled trials, support the use of sacrospinous hysteropexy...

Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) is an emerging field in minimally invasive surgery. NOTES can be performed via a variety of approaches, including through the stomach, esophagus, bladder, and rectum, but the majority of cases have been performed transvaginally. Potential advantages of natural orifice surgery in gynecology include the lack of abdominal incisions, less operative pain, shorter hospital stay, improved visibility, and the possibility to circumvent extensive lysis of adhesion to reach the pelvic cavity...

Although it is the most effective method to treat labor pain, neuraxial analgesia may be undesired, contraindicated, unsuccessful, or unavailable. Providing safe choices for labor pain relief is a central goal of health care providers alike. Consequently, knowledge of the efficacy, clinical implementation, and side effects of various non-neuraxial strategies is needed to provide appropriate options for laboring patients. In addition to nonpharmacologic alternatives, inhaled nitrous oxide and systemic opioids represent two broad classes of non-neuraxial pharmacologic labor analgesia most commonly available...

Obstetric hemorrhage can bring significant challenges to the obstetrician and anesthestiologist. Optimal management requires a systems-based multidisciplinary and intraprofessinal approach, and implementation leadership is now the cornerstone of successful hemorrhage management. The National Partnership for Maternal Safety recently released a patient safety bundle for maternal hemorrhage. The bundle lists 13 resources that should be implemented in every delivery unit in the country to optimize readiness, recognition, response, and reporting and systems learning for obstetric hemorrhage...

Uterine fibroids can significantly impact a woman's health, fertility, and quality of life. When medical therapy fails, surgery is recommended; the gold standard in uterine-sparing surgery is myomectomy. The evidence-based benefits of minimally invasive myomectomy are detailed in this manuscript. Minimally invasive myomectomy techniques are reviewed, including laparoscopic, robotic-assisted, and laparoscopic or robotic-assisted with mini-laparotomy. Criteria for minimally invasive myomectomy are outlined and preoperative planning is discussed...

Minimally invasive surgery is indistinctly defined and some cases possess clinical outcomes that are similarly indistinct or excessively costly. Seeking to clarify these issues will offer organized medicine an opportunity to deliver value-based health care. Context (patient, society, and clinician) is critical to finding that clarity, although the clinician context likely offers the best insights into how the ideal of high-value care may be incorporated into minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.

The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea is unknown during pregnancy, but the syndrome is likely underdiagnosed and rising in frequency along with the obesity epidemic. Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with adverse outcomes, including hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, gestational diabetes, preterm, and cesarean delivery. Obese pregnant women should be screened and referred to a sleep medicine specialist for evaluation. Continuous positive airway pressure is the treatment of choice with demonstrated safety and compliance in pregnancy...
