Management of cervical agenesis is a challenge owing to the complexity of the malformation and the difficulty in restoring and preserving fertility. We propose a minimally invasive fertility-sparing surgery for a 17-year-old woman with congenital cervical agenesis and a normal vagina and uterus confirmed by vaginoscopy. The patient was admitted for primary amenorrhea, hematometra, and cyclic pelvic pain. She had undergone previous laparoscopies for ovarian endometriosis. Our surgical approach involved the creation of an isthmus-vaginal anastomosis with a uterovaginal reconnection...

INTRODUCTION: Müllerian duct anomalies are rare with less than 200 cases published in the literature. Recently, the implementation of the Yang-Monti principle for the creation of the neovagina has been used in 10 previous published cases. Here, we report the first case of cervicovaginal agenesis treated with the modified Yang-Monti technique in two steps in México. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 14-year-old female presented to the pediatric consult with a history of primary amenorrhea and a chronic-cyclic pelvic pain...

BACKGROUND: The classical theory of Müllerian origin of upper vagina fails to explain complex urogenital malformations like OHVIRA syndrome; the Acien's hypothesis, however, unravels the hidden embryopathogenesis. As per Acien, Wolffian (mesonephric) ducts instead of Müllerian ducts and sinovaginal bulbs, give rise to the vagina. The new hypothesis, however, retains the concept of origin of the ureters (with ureters inducing renal development) by the former and the uterus by Müllerian ducts...

BACKGROUND: Multiple causes outside the spine can mimic spinal back pain. Endometriosis is an important gynecologic disorder, which commonly affects the lower region of the female pelvis and less frequently the spine and soft tissues. The lumbosacral trunk is vulnerable to pressure from any abdominal mass originating from the uterus and the ovaries. Therefore symptoms of endometriosis include severe reoccurring pain in the pelvic area as well as lower back and abdominal pain. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report on a 39-year-old gymnast with cyclic sciatica and back pain, whose initial presentation initially led to a spinal fusion at L4/5 and L5/S1, but that procedure did not change her symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Pain associated with appendiceal endometriosis can mimic other intra-abdominal pathology. The diagnosis is usually obvious during gross inspection of the appendix; however, the absence of classical macroscopic appearances may lead to missed cases in which the patient's pain is misdiagnosed and inappropriately managed. CASE: A 34-year-old woman presented with cyclical right iliac fossa pain and an elevated serum C-reactive protein of 13 mg/L (normal < 5 mg/L)...

Endometriosis is a chronic disease of women during their reproductive age. The most typical symptoms are dysmenorrhoea, dyspareunia, dysuria, cyclical and acyclical pelvic pain, bleeding disorders and infertility. These symptoms lead to significant impairment of the quality of life and economic burden. The prevalence is estimated to be 2-20 % of all women in this age and due to this fact, it is one of the most frequently benign gynecological diseases. Not all women suffer from severe symptoms, but more than 50 % require ongoing treatment...

Dysmenorrhea, cyclic pelvic pain, and acyclic pelvic pain are common in adolescent girls, and at least 10% of these girls are at risk for subsequent development of endometriosis. In this article we highlight practical tips for the management of dysmenorrhea and chronic pelvic pain and how to diagnose endometriosis as early as possible and detect patients at risk for developing the disease in the future. We suggest five practical rules for managing adolescents with dysmenorrhea and chronic pelvic pain: (1) Never underestimate the pain; (2) Always consider endometriosis as a possible cause of severe cyclic pain; (3) Obtain a detailed and accurate history before performing clinical evaluation and pelvic sonography; (4) Treat the pain with hormonal therapies (combined oral contraceptives or progestogen-only pill) and analgesics (acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs); and (5) Plan frequent follow-up visits to re-evaluate the patient...

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is an independent risk factor for the development of erectile dysfunction (ED). But the molecular mechanisms underlying the relationship between CP/CPPS and ED are still unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of CP/CPPS on erectile function in a rat model and the possible mechanisms. A rat model of experimental autoimmune prostatitis (EAP) was established to mimic human CP⁄CPPS. Then twenty 2-month-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into EAP group and control group...

Endometriosis, defined by the presence of viable extrauterine endometrial glands and stroma, can grow or bleed cyclically, and possesses characteristics including a destructive, invasive, and metastatic nature. Since endometriosis may result in pelvic inflammation, adhesion, chronic pain, and infertility, and can progress to biologically malignant tumors, it is a long-term major health issue in women of reproductive age. In this review, we analyze the Taiwan domestic research addressing associations between endometriosis and other diseases...

Endometriosis continues to be a major primary gynecologic etiology of chronic pelvic pain. The symptom profile, which includes cyclic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, and dyspareunia or dyschezia, is nonspecific and does not correlate with the extent or severity of disease. Trans-vaginal or trans-rectal ultrasound, as well as magnetic resonance imaging, can help visualize endometriomas and deeply infiltrating endometriosis. Additionally, there have been no serum marker tests available so far. However, even intraoperatively, the diagnosis may be missed, leading to under diagnosis and delayed or noninitiation of treatment...

A panel of experts in the field of endometriosis expressed their opinions on management options in a 28-year-old patient, attempting pregnancy for 1 year, with severe cyclic pelvic pain and with clinical examination and imaging techniques suggestive of adenomyosis. Many questions this paradigmatic patient may pose to the clinician are addressed, and all clinical scenarios are discussed. A decision algorithm derived from this discussion is also proposed.

Endometriosis is an enigmatic disease and its fundamental cause is still unknown. Endometriosis-associated pain syndrome is a common problem; it is underdiagnosed and patients suffering from the syndrome are rarely seen in specialist pain clinics. The correlation between the extent of the disease and pain is weak. Endometriosis-associated pain syndrome may be cyclical or persistent and the pain may radiate to other pelvic organs. Optimum treatment is timely intervention using a multidisciplinary approach.

INTRODUCTION: Treatment of posterior pelvic ring injuries is frequently associated with pain or/and high mortality rates. Percutaneous sacro-iliac (SI) screw fixation has proved to be one of the methods of choice, providing minimal operative time, blood loss and wound-related morbidity. However, fixation failures due to secondary fracture dislocation or screw backing out have been reported. There is a little knowledge regarding the impact of varying screw orientation and quality of reduction on the fixation strength...
