Is performing sacrospinous fixation with vaginal hysterectomy and McCall ’s culdoplasty for advanced uterovaginal prolapse preferable over McCall’s culdoplasty alone?

AbstractPurpose of studyAdvanced uterovaginal prolapse can significantly affect the quality of life in women and usually requires surgical management. McCall ’s culdoplasty (M) or sacrospinous fixation (SSF) are done at the time of vaginal hysterectomy with pelvic floor repair (VHPFR) to reduce recurrence, but recurrence rates of 15% and 33% have been reported with these procedures respectively. We hypothesize that combining VH-PFR with both McCall’s culdoplasty and sacrospinous fixation (VH-PFR-M-SSF) may decrease recurrence rates compared to VH-PFR-M without significantly affecting other perioperative outcomes.MethodsAll patients with advanced uterovaginal prolapse and willing for VH-PFR at our institute from January 2015 to March 2018 were included after informed consent, except for medically unfit women and those preferring alternative management. We conducted a case control study comparing VH-PFR-M and VH-PFR-M-SSF with a follow-up period of 24 months. Qualitative and quantitative data were statistically analysed and Odds ratio and 95% Confidence interval was calculated. Kaplan Meier Curve was drawn and Log Rank test was used to compare recurrence.ResultsOut of 174 patients who underwent surgery in the study period, 131 patients (75.28%) underwent VH-PFR-M and 43 patients (24.71%) underwent VH-PFR-M-SSF. Both groups were comparable for age, body mass index, parity, postmenopausal status, comorbidities and aggravating factors. Patients with higher stage of pro...

CONCLUSION: Prevalence of antibiotic use was high not only versus other hospitals in the region but globally including Africa, coupled with significant evidence of sub-optimal prescribing. Swift action is needed to improve future prescribing to reduce AMR. One or two areas should initially be targeted for quality improvement including development of local guidelines, documentation of antibiotic indications and/or stop/review dates.

Authors: Rombauts A, Abelenda-Alonso G, Cuervo G, Gudiol C, Carratalà J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite adequate antibiotic coverage, community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) remains a leading cause of hospitalization and mortality worldwide. It induces both a local pulmonary and a systemic inflammatory response, particularly significant in severe cases. The intensity of the dysregulated host response varies from patient to patient and has a negative impact on survival and other outcomes. AREAS COVERED: This comprehensive review summarizes the pathophysiological aspects of the inflammatory response in CAP, brie...

Authors: Hammerschlag MR, Sharma R Abstract INTRODUCTION: Azithromycin was recommended as the first-line therapeutic regimen for treatment of genital infections in men and women by the Centers for Disease Control in 1998. A series of studies of azithromycin for treatment of rectal chlamydial infection in men who have sex with men (MSM) found that azithromycin was significantly less effective than doxycycline. AREAS COVERED: Literature on treatment of rectal C. trachomatis from 2000 through May 2020 was searched using PubMed. Retrospective and observational studies were identified documenting the frequency and t...

Authors: Reissier S, Cattoir V Abstract INTRODUCTION: Streptogramins (pristinamycin and quinupristin-dalfopristin) can be interesting options for the treatment of infections due to Gram-positive cocci, especially multidrug-resistant isolates. AREAS COVERED: This review provides an updated overview on structural and activity characteristics, mechanisms of action and resistance, pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic and clinical use of streptogramins. EXPERT OPINION: The streptogramin antibiotics act by inhibition of the bacterial protein synthesis. They are composed of two chemically distinct compounds, namely typ...
