OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the proportion of women who opt for hysterectomy when seeking care for pelvic organ prolapse and the factors important in their decision making. METHODS: One hundred twenty-four patients from July 2011 through August 2012 seeking care for pelvic organ prolapse were recruited to complete a questionnaire regarding their beliefs about uterine preservation at the time of prolapse repair, as well as the PFDI-7 and PSIQ-12. Patients completed a questionnaire before physician consultation that included demographic data, beliefs regarding the social, sexual, and emotional impact of hysterectomy, and sources of information...

This descriptive-correlational study aimed to evaluate the relation between patients' satisfaction with information they have about their disease and its morbidity. A questionnaire was applied in two samples: 235 individuals with recent experience of illness (network sampling) and 254 hospitalized cancer patients post-surgery (consecutive sampling). The Escala de Conhecimentos sobre a Doença(12) [Patients' Satisfaction with Information Questionnaire--PSIQ] and the Rotterdam Symptom Checklist were used.

Twenty-four independent phosphate starvation-inducible (psi) transcriptional fusions made with Mu d1(lacZbla) were analyzed by sequencing the psi::lacZ(Mu d1) chromosomal junctions by using DNAs amplified with the polymerase chain reaction or mini-Mu cloning. Our DNA sequence analysis showed that the MuR DNA in Mu d1 has an unexpected structure that is comprised of 104 bases of MuR DNA in the form of a large inverted repeat, which we denoted Mu d1-R. Also, Mu d1s in the phoA and phn (psiD) loci of the phosphate regulon showed regional specificities for the insertion sites despite the randomness of Mu d1 insertions into the genome as a whole...
