OBJECTIVE: Little is known regarding the progression of preclinical atherosclerosis upon cessation of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT). This study evaluated changes in carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) in a subgroup of participants during 4 years and 3 years after the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS). METHODS: Of the women enrolled in KEEPS at Mayo Clinic (n = 118), a subset (n = 76) agreed to participate in this follow-up study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to identify risk factors for sexual dysfunction in BRCA mutation carriers who have undergone risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO). METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed. BRCA1/2 mutation carriers with and without RRSO were surveyed to determine sexual function (Female Sex Function Index [FSFI]), demographics, medical history, sleep quality, depression, and anxiety scores. Characteristics of patients with the lowest quartile of FSFI scores (<14 ± 8...

OBJECTIVE: The beneficial effects of physical activities on sleep-related symptoms have been reported in the literature, and physical activity has been suggested as an efficient strategy to reduce sleep-related symptoms among midlife women. The effect of Web-based physical activity promotion programs on sleep-related symptoms have, however, rarely been explored, especially among midlife racial/ethnic minority women. The purpose of this pilot study was to test the preliminary efficacy of a WPAPP on self-reported sleep-related symptoms and physical activity of Asian American midlife women...

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have demonstrated that either an obese-insulin resistance condition or a condition involving loss of estrogen impaired skeletal muscle function as indicated by a decrease in muscle contraction. The differing effects of combined estrogen deficiency over obese-insulin resistance on skeletal muscle function have, however, not yet been determined. Our hypothesis was that estrogen deficiency aggravates skeletal muscle dysfunction in obese-insulin resistant rats, via increased muscle oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction...

OBJECTIVE: Weight gain frequently occurs after smoking cessation. The objective of this study was to examine whether weight gain after smoking cessation was attenuated by physical activity (PA) in postmenopausal women. METHODS: A total of 4,717 baseline smokers from the Women's Health Initiative were followed for 3 years. One thousand two hundred eighty-two women quit smoking, and 3,435 continued smoking. Weight was measured at baseline and at the year 3 visit. PA was assessed at both times by self-report, summarized as metabolic equivalent task-hours per week...

OBJECTIVE: Receptors for estrogen and progesterone are present in the pelvic floor, and therefore, postmenopausal hormone therapy may affect its function. We compared the former use of estradiol-progestogen postmenopausal hormone therapy in nonhysterectomized women with a uterine prolapse surgery (N = 12,072) and control women (N = 33,704). METHODS: The women with a history of uterine prolapse operation were identified from the Finnish National Hospital Discharge Register, and the control women from the Finnish Central Population Register...

OBJECTIVE: Recent evidence suggests that early or induced menopause increases the risk for cognitive impairment and dementia. Given the potential for different cognitive outcomes due to menopause types, it is important that present research on menopause and cognition distinguishes between types. The aim of this project was to determine to what extent research looking at cognition in postmenopausal women published in one year, 2016, accounted for menopausal type. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and PsychINFO using keywords and MeSH terms for menopause and cognition...

OBJECTIVE: The perineal body connects muscles from the pelvic floor and is critical for support of the lower part of the vagina and proper function of the anal canal. We determined mechanical parameters and volume fractions of main components of the human female postmenopausal perineal body. METHODS: The specimens were taken from 15 fresh female cadavers (age 74 ± 10, mean ± standard deviation). Seventy-five specimens from five regions of the perineal body were processed histologically to assess volume fractions of tissue components using stereological point testing grid...

OBJECTIVE: Early menopause, the cessation of ovarian function before age 45, has consequences for fertility and cardiovascular health. Evidence from studies of women with autoimmune conditions and genetic studies supports a role for inflammation in early menopause, but the association of inflammatory markers and risk has not been directly evaluated. METHODS: We assessed the relation of the soluble fraction of tumor necrosis factor alpha receptor 2 (sTNFR2), C-reactive protein, interleukin-6 (IL6) levels with incident early menopause among Nurses' Health Study II participants who provided a premenopausal blood sample in 1996 to 1999...

OBJECTIVE: Cognitive outcomes in trials of postmenopausal hormone treatment have been inconsistent. Differing outcomes may be attributed to hormone formulation, treatment duration and timing, and differential cognitive domain effects. We previously demonstrated treatment benefits on visual cognitive function. In the present study, we describe the effects of hormone treatment on verbal outcomes in the same women, seeking to understand the effects of prior versus current hormone treatment on verbal function...

OBJECTIVE: This meta-analysis aims to investigate serum androgen profiles (testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, androstenedione, and sex hormone-binding globulin) in women with premature ovarian failure and to establish if there is evidence of diminished androgen levels in these women. METHODS: Various Internet sources of PubMed, Cochrane library, and Medline were searched systematically until February, 2018. Out of a pool of 2,461 studies, after applying the inclusion/exclusion criterion, 14, 8, 10, and 9 studies were chosen for testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, androstenedione, and sex hormone-binding globulin, respectively, for this meta-analysis...

OBJECTIVE: We hypothesized the association of metabolic profile on cognition in postmenopausal women will be greater among ApoE4 carriers compared with noncarriers. METHODS: Metabolic biomarkers and measures of global cognition, executive functions, and verbal memory, collected among postmenopausal females, were used in this analysis. Clustering analyses of metabolic biomarkers revealed three phenotypes: healthy, predominantly hypertensive, and poor metabolic with (borderline normal laboratory values)...

OBJECTIVE: Postmenopausal women have increased arterial stiffness compared with premenopausal women. Regular physical activity including aerobic and resistance exercises are recommended to lower cardiovascular disease risk and to enhance musculoskeletal health in these women. This study examined the effect of combined circuit exercise on arterial stiffness in hypertensive postmenopausal women. Furthermore, it ascertained whether performing this exercise program is feasible in local public health centers with better accessibility than research and commercial facilities...
