pudendal guidelines

Markus Stücker, Martin Dörler
Sclerotherapy is an important part of the treatment of varicose veins. It may also be performed in patients with contraindications for operative procedures. By adjusting the mode of application (liquid or foam) and the concentration it can be used for the treatment of all vein types. In comparison to other treatment options it is especially well suited for the treatment of spider veins and reticular veins, pudendal varicosity and so called "feeding" varicose veins in the proximity of venous leg ulcers. A current European guideline, which was approved by 23 European phlebologic societies, supports the good international standardization of this treatment technique...

Hemorrhoids are a common medical problem that is often considered as benign. The French Society of Colo-Proctology (Société nationale française de colo-proctologie [SNFCP]) recently revised its recommendations for the management of hemorrhoids (last issued in 2001), based on the literature and consensual expert opinion. We present a short report of these recommendations. Briefly, medical treatment, including dietary fiber, should always be proposed in first intention and instrumental treatment only if medical treatment fails, except in grade ≥III prolapse...

Management of lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) in neurological diseases remains a priority because it leads to many complications such as incontinence, renal failure and decreased quality of life. A pharmacological approach remains the first-line treatment for patients with neurogenic LUTD, but electrical stimulation is a well-validated and recommended second-line treatment. However, clinicians must be aware of the indications, advantages and side effects of the therapy. This report provides an update on the 2 main electrical stimulation therapies for neurogenic LUTD - inducing direct bladder contraction with the Brindley procedure and modulating LUT physiology (sacral neuromodulation, tibial posterior nerve stimulation or pudendal nerve stimulation)...

Most of the nearly 4 million births in the United States annually are normal spontaneous vaginal deliveries. In the first stage of labor, normal birth outcomes can be improved by encouraging the patient to walk and stay in upright positions, waiting until at least 6 cm dilation to diagnose active stage arrest, providing continuous labor support, using intermittent auscultation in low-risk deliveries, and following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for group B streptococcus prophylaxis...

Uterine leiomyomas are underrecognized as a cause of acute urinary retention (AUR) in women. The objective of this study was to present a case series and systematic review of the literature, to elucidate the pathogenesis of leiomyoma-related AUR, and to suggest management strategies. We included patients presenting with AUR and uterine leiomyomas at our institution between January 2011 and December 2013. Further, we systematically searched the Cochrane Library (from 1898 to June 2014), EMBASE (from 1947 to June 2014), and MEDLINE (from 1946 to June 2014) databases according to the PRISMA guidelines...

BACKGROUND: A forceps delivery may be indicated when a fetus fails to progress to delivery, or when delivery needs to be expedited in the second stage of labour. Effective analgesia is required to ensure that the woman is comfortable throughout the delivery, to allow the obstetrician to safely perform the procedure. It is currently unclear what the most effective and safe agent or method is to provide pain relief during forceps delivery. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness and safety of different analgesic agents and methods available for forceps delivery for women and their babies...

The goal of the current study was to systematically review the literature concerning urinary incontinence and pregnancy, in order to develop recommendations for clinical practice. The prevalence of urinary stress incontinence and overactive bladder symptoms increase with gestational age during pregnancy (from the first to the third trimester), and decrease during the third months following delivery. Obstetrics factors (position during delivery, length of the second part of the labour, forceps, episiotomy, epidural or pudendal anaesthesia) do not modify the risk of post-partum or long term urinary incontinence...

The International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) is in the process of updating its Recommendations for clinical practice published in 1999. These new recommendations dedicated to somatosensory-evoked potentials (SEPs) update the methodological aspects and general clinical applications of standard SEPs, and introduce new sections dedicated to the anatomical-functional organization of the somatosensory system and to special clinical applications, such as intraoperative monitoring, recordings in the intensive care unit, pain-related evoked potentials, and trigeminal and pudendal SEPs...

This article reviews the pathogenesis, classification, mechanism and management of constipation. Constipation is likely to be common in the Indian population. It is difficult to define precisely since perception of patient and doctor may differ. Rome Consensus Criteria may not be applicable in India where we should not define constipation as stool frequency less than thrice a week as normal bowel movement in among Indians is different than that in the West. Constipation may be due to difficulty in evacuation, i...

We report a case of high-flow priapism treated successfully with superselective embolization of the cavernous artery. An 18-year-old man presented to our hospital 12 days after having been struck in the perineum by the corner of a skateboard. Immediately after the injury, he suffered painless sustained incomplete erection. High-flow priapism was diagnosed on the basis of cavernosal blood gas analysis and color Doppler ultrasonography findings. Right internal pudendal arteriography showed blood pooling in the cavernosum as a result of a broken artery...

The pathophysiology of defecation disorders is multifactorial. An ideal test should identify the underlying cause(s) and provide guidelines for treatment. Unfortunately, there is no such single test. But several techniques are available that could provide comprehensive information regarding the changes in defecation dynamics. Among these, anorectal manometry offers the most useful test for clinicians. Manometry may provide objective evidence for impaired rectal sensation, poor rectoanal coordination, weak anal sphincters or changes that support a diagnosis of obstructive defecation...

We summarize the prevalence and causes of constipation and incontinence in an elderly, drawing particular attention to the roles of immobility, dietary fiber, and dehydration. The physiology of fecal impaction is described in detail, and neurological and mechanical causes (rectal prolapse, rectocele, and hemorrhoids) of constipation are discussed. Consideration is also given to constipation associated with diverticular disease and ulcerative colitis. We also discuss the pathogenesis of fecal incontinence in the elderly, paying particular attention to fecal impaction and neurological causes that result in both constipation and incontinence...

Interest in anorectal function investigation tests has increased, and new investigation techniques have been introduced, gaining new insight in the pathogenesis of fecal incontinence and constipation. Normal values in anorectal function tests have shown a large overlap between controls and patients with fecal incontinence or constipation. Therefore, the pure clinical indications for the individual anorectal function tests are small, and the strength comes from combining these test results. When the patient is not eligible for surgery or biofeedback, there is no indication to perform anorectal function tests...

The increasing participation in the athletic forms of bicycling warrants expanded physician attention to the traumatic and overuse injuries experienced by cyclists. The modern bicycle consists of a frame with various components, including handlebars, brakes, wheels, pedals, and gears, in various configurations for the various modes of cycling. For high performance cycling the proper fit of the bicycle is critical. The most efficient method to provide an accurate fit is the Fitkit, but proper frame selection and adjustment can be made by following simple guidelines for frame size, seat height, fore and aft saddle position, saddle angle, reach and handlebar height...
