Laparoscopic modified radical hysterectomy for cystadenoma – Clare ’ s story
The post Laparoscopic modified radical hysterectomy for cystadenoma – Clare’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I was referred to a gynaecologist for post menopausal bleeding 3 months ago. He did a vaginal ultrasound and saw a cyst. Removal of the ovary was mentioned as a possibility because of my age (55) but he first ordered a MRI for further information because of the bleeding. This showed a solid area in the cyst which I was told could mean borderline or early ovarian cancer so the decision was taken to do a BSO and hysterectomy within 30 days with the possibility of further surgery to the l...

The STD You've Probably Never Heard Of
The Basics Trichomoniasis (trich) is a common STI caused by a tiny parasite called Trichomonas vaginalis. An estimated 3.7 million people are infected, but because only about 30 percent show symptoms, most people don't know they have it until they get a positive test result. How You Get It The parasite gets passed during unprotected vaginal sex (can be from penis to vagina, vagina to penis, or vagina to vagina). Trich usually doesn't affect other areas, like the mouth or anus, which means this is one STD that is relatively uncommon for gay and bisexual men. What's It Like? Here's where the not-fun part comes in: When trich...

This advice states that in a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in adults with complicated intra‑abdominal infections, intravenous ceftolozane/tazobactam plus metronidazole was found to be non‑inferior to intravenous meropenem plus saline (placebo) in terms of clinical cure rates 24–32 days after starting treatment. However, it is unclear whether the results apply to some populations; for example, people aged over 65 years, or those with renal impairment or who are at a higher risk of dying. Appendiceal perforation or abscess was the most common diagnosis in the study and less information is available on using cef...

What is the Recurrence Risk for Clostridium difficile Infection?
Discussion Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a common cause of nosocomial diarrhea. Clostridium difficile is an obligate, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus that is spore-forming and toxin producing. It is resistant to acid, heat, antibiotics and many antiseptic agents. Spores are acquired from the environment or by oral-fecal route. Once in the colon, the bacteria attach and proliferate making vegetative forms. Two main toxins are produced which disrupt the colonic integrity. Toxin A (TcdA) is an endotoxin that disrupts the mucosal cells. Toxin B (TcdB) is a cytotoxin that is 1000x more potent than TcdA and causes a...
