Vulvodynia - Diagnostics and Management Strategies.

[Vulvodynia - Diagnostics and Management Strategies]. Praxis (Bern 1994). 2019 Aug;108(10):685-691 Authors: Ghisu GP Abstract Vulvodynia - Diagnostics and Management Strategies Abstract. Vulvodynia is characterized by chronic, idiopathic vulvar pain lasting for at least three months. After exclusion of other, specific diseases associated with vulvar pain, which can be treated accordingly, realistic therapy goals for this chronic disease should be defined. The therapy concept is multimodal, interdisciplinary as well as individualized and includes the combination of general recommendations with physiotherapeutic and psychotherapeutic measures. Pharmacological therapy, which is indispensable, is carried out off-label and includes the topical and/or systemic use of various substances and substance combinations. Surgical measures may be regarded as a possible option, especially in women with therapy-resistant and provocable vulvodynia. Alternative therapy options such as acupuncture, hypnosis and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation are also worth investigating. PMID: 31387503 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Biopsychosocial risk factors were associated with poorer health-related quality of life, regardless of the time since injury. Early assessment of these risk factors and tailored interventions will go some way towards improving outcomes among compensable patients with minor to moderate transport-related injuries.

This study identifies a novel extracellular allosteric modulator site formed by a crevice between transmembrane domains 5, 7, and 8, and extracellular loop 4 of GlyT2. Knowledge of this site could be exploited further in the development of drugs to treat pain, and to identify other allosteric modulators of the SLC6 family of transporters.
