Pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms and risk factors at the first year of postpartum women: a cross-sectional study.

CONCLUSION: The most frequent pelvic floor dysfunctions (PFD) after birth were perineal pain, constipation, flatus incontinence, dyspareunia and IU respectively. It was seen that the symptomatic PFD was very common in the postpartum period. The results of the study emphasized the importance of lifestyle changes, avoiding perineal trauma during childbirth, and effective pelvic floor exercises in preventing PFD in pregnancy and postpartum. IMPACT STATEMENT: Nurses should acknowledge the importance of PFD after birth and identify the problems early period. Our study emphasizes size of the problem and improvement for PFD.

CONCLUSIONS: Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary liver tumor in children and has an increased incidence in children with a history of prematurity and very low birth weight. Providers who frequently care for the very low birth weight and premature children with CP should be aware of this correlation and include hepatoblastoma in the differential when managing patients with suddenly worsening constipation or abdominal distension. Pediatric physiatrists and other providers for these patients could be a source of referrals and diagnosis leading to timely treatment. PMID: 32444576 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
