The Effect of Medical Consultation on Patients' Concerns Regarding Vaginal Mesh Use in Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery.
CONCLUSION: Almost 75% of patients presenting for urogynecologic consultation had heard of vaginal mesh use, and 55.7% cited the media as their source of information. Medical consultation significantly reduced the patients' level of concern regarding the use of mesh in PFRS and significantly increased the proportion of patients willing to have mesh placed if appropriate.

Review of Enhanced Recovery after Surgery Principles Used for Scheduled CD: Perioperative Process Evaluation.
Authors: Huang J, Cao C, Nelson G, Wilson RD Abstract There is an increasing body of evidence to support the success of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) for a wide range of surgical procedures. There has been little formalized application, however, of ERAS principles in obstetrical surgery. The aim of this review was to examine the evidence base of perioperative care for patients undergoing CD and to determine the feasibility of developing an ERAS Society guideline for this obstetrical care plan.

More specifically, it aimed to evaluate how psychosocial factors can impact on diet and, thus, influence GWG. Studies published through May 2017 that examined factors related to GWG were included. Of 3268 non-duplicate titles and abstract, 77 articles underwen...
