Healthcare Resource Use and Costs Associated with Opioid Initiation Among Patients with Newly Diagnosed Endometriosis with Commercial Insurance in the USA

AbstractIntroductionTo compare all-cause and endometriosis-related healthcare resource utilization (HCRU) and healthcare costs by service categories (outpatient, inpatient, emergency room [ER], pharmacy) among patients with newly diagnosed endometriosis using opioids compared to patients with endometriosis not using opioids.MethodsA retrospective analysis of IBM ® MarketScan® Commercial Claims data from 2009 to 2018 was performed for women aged 18–49 with newly diagnosed endometriosis (International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-9 code 617.xx; ICD-10 code N80.xx) over 24 months follow-up. Patients were stratified on the basis of opioid use within 12  months post first endometriosis diagnosis date. Patients with opioid use were 1:1 matched to patients without opioid use using propensity score matching.ResultsA total of 85,329 female patients with a new endometriosis diagnosis were identified and 48,470 patients (24,235 opioid and 24,235 non-opioid users) remained after inclusion –exclusion criteria and matching. Opioid patients had an estimated mean 30.33 outpatient visits, 29.59 pharmacy fills, 0.28 inpatient visits, 0.65 ER visits, and total length of stay (LOS) was 1.01 days. Non-opioid patients had an estimated mean 27.94 outpatient visits, 22.06 pharmacy fills, 0.23 inpatient visits, 0.42 ER visits, and total LOS was 0.82 days. On average, opioid patients had significantly greater all-cause HCRU compared to non-opioid patients (a...

MicroRNA‑16 inhibits endometrial stromal cell migration and invasion through suppression of the inhibitor of nuclear factor‑κB kinase subunit β/nuclear factor‑κB pathway. Int J Mol Med. 2020 Aug;46(2):740-750 Authors: Wang X, Ren R, Shao M, Lan J Abstract Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that endometrial stromal cells (ESCs) are responsible for the pathogenesis of endometriosis (Ems), which is characterized by the presence of functional endometrial‑like tissues outside the uterine cavity. Abnormal expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in ESCs may be implicated in the etiology...

A 38-year-old woman gravida 3 para 1, aborta 2 with body mass index of 21 kg/m2 underwent laparoscopic fulguration of endometriosis. Three 5-mm bladeless trocars were used. Superficial endometriosis implants in the posterior cul-de-sac and left uterosacral ligament were fulgurated using bipolar electrosurgery without difficulty. Two days later, the patient experienced a “pop-like” sensation in the umbilicus after coughing. Abdominal examination revealed a 4 × 2 × 1-cm pink-tan structure protruding through the umbilicus (Figure 1, panel A).

Authors: Feng Y, Zhan F, Zhong Y, Tan B Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the effects of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (Huc‑MSCs)‑derived exosomes on the migratory abilities of endometrial glandular epithelial cells, and to evaluate the underlying mechanism from the perspective of epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT). Huc‑MSCs were prepared from human umbilical cord, and eutopic endometrial glandular epithelial cells were isolated from patients with endometriosis. The exosomes derived from Huc‑MSCs (Huc‑MSCs‑exo) were prepared using an exosome extraction kit. The endomet...
