  • StatPearls: Pudendal Nerve Entrapment Syndrome [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Kaur Jasmeen J Augusta University Singh Paramvir P Augusta University Medical Center BOOK
  • Pudendal neuralgia caused by pudendal nerve entrapment (PNE) is a chronic and severely disabling neuropathic pain syndrome.[1] It presents in the pudendal nerve region and affects both males and females.  It is mostly underdiagnosed and inappropriately treated, and causes significant impairment of quality of life. Anatomy of the Pudendal Nerve: The pudendal nerve emerges from the S2, S3, and S4 r…
  • Endometriosis infiltrating the pelvic floor muscles with histopathological correlation-A case report. [Case Reports]
    J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2019; 45(10):2116-2120Crispi CP, Crispi CP, … de Freitas Fonseca M
  • We report the case of a 29-year-old woman with deep infiltrating endometriosis who underwent robotic nerve-sparing surgery for resection of all visible lesions infiltrating pelvic and extrapelvic sites. Painful symptoms included severe dysmenorrhea, menstrual dyschezia and stranguria, with no improvement in response to hormonal treatment. The location on physical examination of a painful retrocer…
  • Uncovering changes in proteomic signature of rat pelvic floor muscles in pregnancy. [Journal Article]
    Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019; 221(2):130.e1-130.e9Burnett LA, Boscolo FS, … Alperin M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pelvic floor muscles gain a distinct proteomic signature in pregnancy, which provides a mechanistic foundation for the antepartum physiological alterations acquired by these muscles. Variability in genes encoding these proteins may alter plasticity of the pelvic floor muscles and therefore the extent of the protective pregnancy-induced adaptations. Furthermore, pelvic floor muscles' proteome is divergent from that of the nonpelvic skeletal muscles.
  • Keeping the pelvic floor healthy. [Journal Article]
    Climacteric 2019; 22(3):257-262Dumoulin C, Pazzoto Cacciari L, Mercier J
  • Female pelvic floor muscles form a diaphragm that spans the entire pelvic cavity. They consist of the fibers of the coccygeus and the levator ani muscles, the latter of which is composed of five parts. Together with their fascia, the pelvic floor muscles provide support for the urethra, the vagina, and the rectum and constrict the urethral, vaginal, and anal orifices. Alterations in the compositi…
  • A Review of the Surgical Management of Perineal Hernias in Dogs. [Review]
    J Am Anim Hosp Assoc 2018 Jul/Aug; 54(4):179-187Gill SS, Barstad RD
  • Perineal hernia refers to the failure of the muscular pelvic diaphragm to support the rectal wall, resulting in herniation of pelvic and, occasionally, abdominal viscera into the subcutaneous perineal region. The proposed causes of pelvic diaphragm weakness include tenesmus associated with chronic prostatic disease or constipation, myopathy, rectal abnormalities, and gonadal hormonal imbalances. …
  • Coccygodynia - pathogenesis, diagnostics and therapy. Review of the writing. [Review]
    Pol Przegl Chir 2017; 89(4):33-40Dampc B, Słowiński K
  • Coccygodynia is a problem with a small percentage (1%) of the population suffering from musculoskeletal disorders. This pain is often associated with trauma, falling on the tailbone, long cycling, or by women after childbirth. The reason for the described problem can be the actual morphological changes. Idiopathic coccygodynia causes therapeutic difficulties to specialists of many fields. Unsatis…
