Publication date: Available online 21 June 2019Source: European Journal of Obstetrics &Gynecology and Reproductive BiologyAuthor(s): Isabel Gómez, Pluvio J. Coronado, Clara M. Martín, Ruben Alonso, Francisco J. Guisasola-CampaAbstractObjectiveTo study the prevalence and epidemiological characteristics of women with vulvodynia. To assess the risk factors associated to the disease.Study designA cross-sectional study was made in which questionnaires were anonymously and confidentially distributed to Spanish women over 18 years of age between April 2016 and September 2017. The questionnaires were distributed by e-mail and through social networks, women's associations and specific websites. This type of questionnaire has been validated and used in many studies of this kind. The women answered questions referred to epidemiological aspects, demographic parameters, medical history, the presence of vulvodynia, associated factors, and comorbidities.ResultsA total of 684 questionnaires were completed. The prevalence of vulvodynia was 6.6% (45 women). Thirteen percent (95 women) had experienced vulvodynia at some point in life. The factors associated to vulvodynia were prior vaginal deliveries (p = 0.001), vulvovaginal candidiasis (p

We present a case of a patient with lateral knee pain and subjective instability sensation after a low-energy trauma secondary to a lateral meniscus tear, with absence of the PCL on MRI examination and thickened meniscofemoral ligaments, with anterior and superior insertion at the femur, in the footprint of PCL. The patient had a menisci repair, without PCL reconstruction. At the 6-month follow-up, the patient did not report any instability symptoms during his daily work and sports activities. There are therapeutic implications in distinguishing a chronic PCL tear from an aplasia, so it is important to detect some signs in...

AbstractObjectiveTo investigate whether pathological changes in elbow epicondylopathy, as assessed by conventional ultrasonography and clinical outcomes, could be modified following tenotomy with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) versus tenotomy with lidocaine.MethodsThis prospective sub-study was part of a patient- and assessor-blinded, superiority-type, randomized, lidocaine-controlled trial that was performed in a tertiary hospital to assess the effectiveness of PRP versus lidocaine as tenotomy adjuvants in patients with epicondylopathy. Patients were followed after two sessions of tenotomy with either PRP or lidocaine adjuvan...

AbstractObjectiveOur primary aim was to quantify the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) sheath fluid volume in individuals with the clinical diagnosis of stage 1 posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) and no MRI-detectable intra-substance tendon pathology and compare them with patients with other causes of medial ankle pain, also without MRI-detectable intra-substance PTT pathology and with normal controls. We also wanted to determine if there is a fluid measurement that correlates with the clinical diagnosis of PTTD.Materials and MethodsA total of 326 individuals with medial ankle pain and no intra-substance PTT pathology ...

AbstractObjectivesTo evaluate lesion filling and other factors that could affect the clinical outcomes of cementoplasty for pelvic bone metastases.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed the files of 40 patients treated for 44 pelvic bone metastases, collected the parameters related to patients (pain relief evaluated on a visual analog scale, subsequent fractures, and need for surgery), lesions (size, cortical breach score, fracture, soft-tissue extension), and cementoplasty procedures (number of needles, volume of cement, percentage of lesion filling, cement leaks, residual acetabular roof defect), and performed a statistical ...

AbstractPathology of the fascia lata attachment at the iliac crest (FLAIC) is an under-recognized and often misdiagnosed cause of lateral hip pain. The fascia lata has a broad attachment at the lateral iliac crest with contributions from the tensor fascia lata muscle, the iliotibial band, and the gluteal aponeurosis. The FLAIC is susceptible to overuse injuries, acute traumatic injuries, and degeneration. There is a paucity of literature regarding imaging and image-guided treatment of the FLAIC. We review anatomy and pathology of the FLAIC, presenting novel high-resolution (18 –24 MHz) ultrasound images includin...

ABSTRACT Objective: To investigate how symptoms vary according to the appendiceal position in pediatric patients and to demonstrate that the laparoscopic approach is safe and effective in any appendiceal location by comparing each location to another. Methods: The medical records of 1,736 children aged 14 or younger who underwent laparoscopic appendectomy over a period of 14 years were analyzed retrospectively. Patients were divided according to the position of the appendiceal tip into four groups: anterior, pelvic, retrocecal and subhepatic. The Kruskal-Wallis and chi-square tests were used with the Bonferroni correction,...
