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...

PURPOSE: Fibrin sealant (FS) was approved as a hemostatic agent, sealant, and adhesive by the Food and Drug Administration in 1998. Our study sought to determine whether FS also reduced edema and pain in rhinoplasty without osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective randomized trial involving patients who underwent open rhinoplasty without osteotomy. The patients were randomly assigned to 1 of 2 groups: those treated with aerosolized FS (FS group) and those not treated (control group)...

BACKGROUND: Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC) typically clinically manifest with symptoms like chronic diarrhea, cramps, abdominal pain, and rectal bleeding. However, symptoms of abnormal anorectal function seem to be of equal importance, regardless of the presence or absence of perianal disease. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess stool patterns and the prevalence of symptoms of disordered anorectal function, particularly urgency and fecal incontinence, and their severity in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs)...

INTRODUCTION: Leiomyoma affects up to 50% of fertile women, leading to morbidity such as bleeding or pain. The effect of symptomatic leiomyoma on the productivity of employed women is understudied. The present study investigates productivity loss in a Swedish setting in women with symptomatic leiomyoma compared to healthy women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Women seeking care for leiomyoma and heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) were recruited at nine Swedish sites. Healthy controls with self-perceived mild to normal menstruation were recruited at routine visits...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of NovaSure® radiofrequency global endometrial ablation (GEA) in adenomyosis. STUDY DESIGN: We conducted a monocentric longitudinal cohort study at Croix-Rousse University Hospital (Lyon, France). Inclusion criteria were symptomatic adenomyosis resistant to drug therapy (dysmenorrhea and abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB)), for whom Novasure® GEA was considered. The diagnosis of adenomyosis was based on ultrasound and/or MRI criteria...

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a rare autosomal dominantly inherited disorder characterized with bleeding episodes. These episodes tend to happen spontaneously and reduce the quality of life. Patients are often unresponsive to local measures. With the pathophysiological role of angiogenesis in HHT, antiangiogenic drugs including thalidomide were used to control bleeding episodes. In our study, we evaluated 6 patients with HHT, evaluated them with epistaxis severity score (ESS) and performed a quality of life assessment with 36 Item Short Form Questionnaire (SF-36) and the alterations of these evaluations with thalidomide treatment...

INTRODUCTION: The bleeding assessment tool (BAT) has been developed to standardize and interpret bleeding history for mild bleeding disorders. However, a critical appraisal addressing the quality and results of validation studies is lacking. AIM: We performed a systematic review of diagnostic studies assessing the performance of the BAT in patients referred for evaluation of bleeding symptoms. METHODS: The electronic database PubMed was searched from inception through July 27, 2017...

Purpose: Oral health in cancer patients was known to influence the quality of life. However, the knowledge of possible factors associated with oral health in cancer patients is seriously lacking in Saudi Arabia. In this study, we aimed to determine the burden of adverse oral health in cancer patients and identify the associated factors for oral health problems. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study design was used to recruit a total of 375 cancer patients who attended oncology outpatient clinics at King Abdulaziz Medical City - Riyadh (KAMC-R) by using a consecutive sampling technique...

Importance: Adenotonsillectomy (ATE) is the primary surgical method for treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in children. However, children with severe OSA have an increased risk for residual OSA after ATE. Previous studies indicate that adenopharyngoplasty (APP), a modified ATE with closure of the tonsillar pillars, might improve the surgical outcome, but the overall evidence is weak. Objective: To determine whether APP is more effective than ATE for treating severe OSA in otherwise healthy children...

BACKGROUND: The recommended treatment in patients with severe haemophilia is prophylaxis. This prevents bleedings and reduces or delays the haemophilic arthropathy. Adherence defined as the follow-up of the patient to the prescriptions of the health professional to his treatment, both pharmacological and modifications in habits or stylelifes. Adherence rates in haemophilia are better than in other chronic diseases, but there remain reasons for nonadherence. The aim was to see if disease behaviour and disease perception together with coping strategies modulate adherence to treatment...
