Long-Term Experience with Modified McCall Culdoplasty in Women Undergoing Vaginal Hysterectomy for Pelvic Organ Prolapse
CONCLUSION: This cohort of patients who underwent modified McCall culdoplasty had low rates of vault prolapse recurrence and prolapse symptoms. The modified McCall culdoplasty technique practised at our institution is safe and effective in preventing post-hysterectomy vault prolapse.PMID:33984523 | DOI:10.1016/j.jogc.2021.04.012 (Source: Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada : JOGC)

Sentinel lymph node sampling as an alternative to lymphadenectomy in patients with endometrial cancer and obesity
J Obstet Gynaecol Can. 2021 May 10:S1701-2163(21)00370-4. doi: 10.1016/j.jogc.2021.04.014. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Although its use in endometrial cancer staging is relatively new, sentinel lymph node (SLN) sampling has been shown to be highly accurate and is associated with few complications. However, some studies report lower rates of detection with SLN sampling among patients with obesity. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the feasibility of SLN sampling in endometrial cancer for patients with obesity, and to determine whether omitting lymph node dissection (LND) in surgical staging using SLN ...

Two-Thirds of Preterm Parents Would Participate in a Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Double Doses of Steroids to a Single Dose and Placebo
J Obstet Gynaecol Can. 2021 May 6:S1701-2163(21)00345-5. doi: 10.1016/j.jogc.2021.03.020. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAnimal research strongly suggests that a single dose of antenatal corticosteroids (ACS) is as effective as a double dose to mature preterm lungs; however, a human randomized controlled trial (RCT) is urgently needed. From August to November 2020, we conducted an online survey of Canadian parents of preterm infants. Survey respondents watched a parent-to-parent video introducing an RCT to study whether the standard double dose of ACS is non-inferior to a single dose (and matching placebo). Approximately tw...

Pathophysiology of Vaginal Erosions in Women Using Pessary: a pilot study examining vaginal microbiota
The objectives of this study were to investigate the differences in vaginal pH and variations of the vaginal microbiota among pessary and non-pessary users.METHODS: For this descriptive observational study, 30 women, followed in our urogynecology clinic, were recruited to form 3 equal groups: 2 groups of women using a pessary (with and without erosions) and 1 control group of women not using a pessary. Vaginal pH was measured distally and next to the erosion. Vaginal swabs were used to investigate the vaginal microbiota by sequencing the V4 region of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene and analyzing the data with Qiime2. Descriptiv...

A retrospective study of clinical encounters for pelvic inflammatory disease: missed opportunities to screen for syphilis and HIV?
This study sought to determine the proportion of women who are screened for syphilis and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) when admitted with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of all inpatient admissions for PID over 3 discrete years (fiscal years 2007, 2012, 2017) at a single tertiary care centre. Data extracted from medical records included STBBI screening performed, clinical signs at presentation, and history of PID or STBBI. To improve the accuracy of our estimates, we complemented the records data with population data from Manitoba. We evaluated predictive factors influe...

Aspirin for endometrial preparation in patients undergoing IVF: a systematic review and meta-analysis
CONCLUSION: These findings support a beneficial effect of aspirin for endometrial preparation on IVF success rates, mainly live birth rates, outside the context of ovarian stimulation.
