PURPOSE: To measure the association between the menstrual cycle and the frequency of alveolar osteitis (AO). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a study with a single-blind design, patients with bilateral impacted third molar teeth underwent randomized surgical extraction: one tooth during the menstrual period and one during the middle of the cycle. The postoperative examiner was unaware of the menstrual cycle status of the patients. The predictor variable was the timing of the menstrual cycle and was grouped as mid-cycle and menstrual period...

Thoracic endometriosis syndrome is a relatively uncommon disorder characterized by recurrent pneumothoraces, hemothorax, chest pain, dyspnea, and hemoptysis within 48 to 72 hours of menstruation. A 34 year old, ASA physical status 2 woman with recurrent catamenial pneumothoraces due to thoracic endometriosis syndrome is presented. After treatment with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, she underwent successful elective diagnostic abdominal laparoscopy without incident. The presence of parenchymal injury and damage predisposes these patients to ventilator-induced lung injury...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of 0.2 mg mL-1 of ondansetron added to morphine patient-controlled analgesia solution after a 4 mg loading dose on the incidence and severity of postoperative nausea and vomiting. METHODS: One hundred and sixty patients scheduled for elective surgery, between 18 and 65 yr old, were studied. Patients who smoked, received antiemetics and hormonal therapy, had a history of motion sickness or gastrointestinal disease, a body mass index >35 or menstruation at the time of the study were excluded...

OBJECTIVES: Extrahepatic biliary atresia (EHBA) is the most common indication for liver transplantation in childhood. Most children who do not undergo transplant are reported to have chronic liver disease and its complications. The aim of this single-center study was to identify children with normal laboratory indices and no clinical evidence of chronic liver disease 10 or more years after Kasai portoenterostomy (KP). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the medical notes of all children surgically treated at the authors' center between 1979 and 1991 was undertaken...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate changes in expression levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mRNA in human endometrial explants in a chicken chorioallantoic membrane model of endometriosis. DESIGN: Experimental prospective study. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENT(S): Endometrial biopsy samples were obtained from healthy, ovulating women undergoing elective surgery. INTERVENTION(S): Endometrial fragments were placed on the chicken chorioallantoic membrane and removed for analysis after 0, 24, 48, and 72 hours...

OBJECTIVE: In order to assess the efficacy and tolerability of leuprorelin acetate depot in pre-operative flattening of the endometrium prior to hysteroscopic endometrial ablation, 94 patients from eight centres were included in the per protocol analysis. MATERIAL AND PATIENTS: The patients included were pre- or peri-menopausal, had completed their family planning and had intractable uterine bleeding. The primary target criterion was the reduction in maximum endometrial thickness after two injections of leuprorelin acetate depot with an interval of four weeks between injections...

Despite advances in anesthetic practice and surgical techniques, the overall incidence of postoperative vomiting (POV) ranges from 20% to 30% during the first 24 hours after surgery. Studies specifically examining the relationship between POV and the menstrual cycle demonstrate equivocal findings. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the incidence of POV and the phase of the menstrual cycle, age, body mass index, history of POV, duration of anesthesia, and use of droperidol among 79 women undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy...

The reliability of the preoperative history obtained from adolescent patients in ruling out pregnancy was prospectively evaluated. Four hundred forty-four patients who underwent 525 procedures were questioned preoperatively regarding the possibility of pregnancy. Regardless of the history, a urine pregnancy test was ordered in accordance with institutional practice. In 508 cases, patients denied the possibility of pregnancy. Eight patients stated that they might be pregnant, and in six cases the parents responded for the patients and denied the possibility of pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of unrecognized early pregnancy and its influence on the surgical and anesthetic course in patients presenting for elective ambulatory surgery have not been previously determined. The current study was designed to determine the incidence of unrecognized pregnancy in women presenting for ambulatory surgery. In addition, it examined how discovery of the pregnancy altered the anesthetic or surgical course. METHODS: In a prospective study over a 1-yr period, all women of childbearing potential (defined as menstruating women without prior hysterectomy or tubal ligation) were preoperatively evaluated and tested for urine or serum human chorionic gonadotropin, to determine unrecognized pregnancy...

Follow-up data on a series of 35 nulliparous women sterilized by laparoscopic tubal ligation have been analyzed for changes in menstrual pattern, motivation, and poststerilization adjustment problems with particular interest in feelings of regret. There was no significant change in menstrual function in these patients following surgery. There did not appear to be a significantly higher rate of regret in nulliparous women undergoing tubal ligation than that seen in studies of parous women. Feelings of unhappiness with regard to sterility were not related to age at the time of the request and may be more likely to occur in women choosing tubal ligation for medical reasons...

Toxic shock syndrome is a rapidly developing disease which may be lethal if not recognized and treated early. While this disease is usually associated with menstruating females, it is being seen in both male and female patients following clean, elective surgery. Toxic shock syndrome has been reported following surgical procedures which normally have a very low incidence of postoperative wound infections. Toxic shock syndrome is associated with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria which produce the toxic shock syndrome toxin 1...

One hundred and thirty-one patients undergoing elective laparoscopic surgery for sterilization or infertility investigations were examined in a prospective study. Firstly, the contributions of the reason for undergoing the operation to the patients' psychological adjustment and recovery, is examined. Measures were taken of personality, mood, physical symptoms, vital signs and the patients' speed of returning to normal activities. The reason for laparoscopy does not appear to influence the amount of fear immediately before and after the operation, post-operative physical symptoms, nor the majority of mood states at follow up...

A comprehensive historic, demographic, and medical questionnaire was administered to 106 women referred to a multidisciplinary clinic for evaluation of idiopathic chronic pelvic pain and to 92 age-matched, pain-free control patients presenting for routine annual examination. Although racial distribution, mean gravidity and parity, and rates of elective abortion were similar in both groups of respondents, spontaneous abortion was reported significantly more frequently among women with pelvic pain. Patients in the study group were also more likely to be on active military duty, to have undergone previous nongynecologic surgery, and to have sought treatment for unrelated somatic complaints...

Toxic shock syndrome is an uncommon disease associated with staphylococcal infections. Although most frequently reported in menstruating women and associated with tampon use, toxic shock syndrome has been described following many types of surgical procedures. In this report we describe a case of toxic shock syndrome occurring in a previously healthy young man after elective surgery for a pilonidal cyst.
