Pain and fatigue are the most common problems reported by women in the early postpartum period. Pain can interfere with a woman's ability to care for herself and her infant. Untreated pain is associated with a risk of greater opioid use, postpartum depression, and development of persistent pain. Nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic therapies are important components of postpartum pain management. Because 81% of women in the United States initiate breastfeeding during the postpartum period, it is important to consider the drug effects of all prescribed medications on the mother-infant dyad...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the risks of gynecologic cancer according to the type of endometriosis in women with surgically verified endometriosis. METHODS: This is a population-based study of women with surgically verified endometriosis retrieved from the Finnish Hospital Discharge Register 1987-2012 (N=49,933); the subtypes of ovarian (n=23,210), peritoneal (n=20,187), and deep infiltrating (n=2,372) endometriosis were analyzed separately.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the change over time in place of death (hospital, home, hospice) among all women in the United States who died of gynecologic malignancies and compare them with other leading causes of female cancer deaths. METHODS: This is a retrospective cross-sectional study using national death certificate data from the Mortality Multiple Cause-of-Death Public Use Record Data. All women who died from gynecologic, breast, lung, and colorectal cancers were identified according to International Classification of Diseases, 10 Revision, cause of death from 2003 to 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship between first-trimester vaginal bleeding and fetal growth patterns. METHODS: We conducted a secondary analysis of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Fetal Growth Studies-Singletons, a prospective cohort study of low-risk, nonobese women with healthy lifestyles. Duration of bleeding was self-reported at enrollment (10 0/7 to 13 6/7 weeks of gestation) and categorized as 0, 1, or more than 1 day...

Although national attention has been focused on sexual harassment and gender inequity in the United States, leaders within the obstetrics and gynecology community have remained relatively silent. Sexual harassment and gender inequity remain pervasive in our specialty. This article serves as a call to action for leadership as well as physicians within obstetrics and gynecology to implement ethical and evidence-based approaches to reduce gender inequity and improve workplace culture within our specialty.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the trends in use of trachelectomy in the United States and to examine the outcomes of the procedure compared with hysterectomy in young women with cervical cancer. METHODS: Data were analyzed from women younger than 50 years of age with stage IA2-IB2 cervical cancer treated with hysterectomy or trachelectomy from 2004 to 2014 who were registered in the National Cancer Database. After propensity score matching, we used Cox proportional hazard models to examine the association between treatment and survival...

OBJECTIVE: To perform a population-based analysis to first examine the changes in surgeon and hospital procedural volume for hysterectomy over time and then to explore the association between very low surgeon procedural volume and outcomes. METHODS: All women who underwent hysterectomy in New York State from 2000 to 2014 were examined. Surgeons were classified based on the average annual procedural volume as very low-volume surgeons if they performed one procedure per year...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of the dependent coverage mandate of the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA) on insurance status, stage at diagnosis, and receipt of fertility-sparing treatment among young women with gynecologic cancer. METHODS: We used a difference-in-differences design to assess insurance status, stage at diagnosis (stage I-II vs III-IV), and receipt of fertility-spearing treatment before and after the 2010 ACA among young women aged 21-26 years vs women aged 27-35 years...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic hysterectomies comprise a large proportion of all hysterectomies in the United States. Procedures completed under regional anesthesia pose a number of benefits to patients, but laparoscopic hysterectomies traditionally have been performed under general anesthesia. We describe a case of total laparoscopic hysterectomy under epidural anesthesia with the patient fully awake. CASE: A 51-year-old woman with abnormal uterine bleeding underwent an uncomplicated total laparoscopic hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, and excision of endometriosis...

OBJECTIVE: We implemented a hysterectomy-specific surgical site infection prevention bundle after a higher-than-expected surgical site infection rate was identified at our institution. We evaluate how this bundle affected the surgical site infection rate, length of hospital stay, and 30-day postoperative readmission rate. METHODS: This is a quality improvement study featuring retrospective analysis of a prospectively implemented, multidisciplinary team-designed surgical site infection prevention bundle that consisted of chlorhexidine-impregnated preoperative wipes, standardized aseptic surgical preparation, standardized antibiotic dosing, perioperative normothermia, surgical dressing maintenance, and direct feedback to clinicians when the protocol was breached...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the contributions of patient and health care provider-hospital characteristics to the variation in the frequency of nulliparous, term, singleton, vertex cesarean delivery in a multi-institutional U.S. cohort. METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of the multicenter Assessment of Perinatal Excellence cohort of 115,502 mother and neonatal pairs who were delivered at 25 hospitals between March 2008 and February 2011. Women met inclusion criteria if they were nulliparous and delivered a singleton in vertex presentation at term...

OBJECTIVE: To compare anatomic outcomes after native tissue vaginal vault suspension among women categorized by their preoperative and 6-week postoperative genital hiatus size. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study in women who underwent native tissue vaginal vault suspension between 2005 and 2015. We defined a wide genital hiatus as 4 cm or greater and a normal genital hiatus as less than 4 cm. We compared three groups: 1) women with a wide genital hiatus preoperatively and 6 weeks postoperatively (persistently wide group), 2) women with a wide genital hiatus preoperatively but normal genital hiatus 6 weeks postoperatively (improved group), and 3) women with a normal genital hiatus preoperatively and 6 weeks postoperatively (stably normal group)...
