    Title Use of Pelvic Organ Prolapse Staging Systems in Published Articles of Selected Specialized Journals.
    Date April 2010
    Journal International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
    Excerpt

    A standardized system for reporting pelvic organ prolapse is important for clinical communication, patient follow-up, and meaningful comparisons between studies. In 1996, the description of the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification system (POPQ) was published. We hypothesized that its use in published articles of specialized journals would increase over time.

    Title Anatomic Outcomes of Vaginal Mesh Procedure (prolift) Compared with Uterosacral Ligament Suspension and Abdominal Sacrocolpopexy for Pelvic Organ Prolapse: a Fellows' Pelvic Research Network Study.
    Date November 2009
    Journal American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
    Excerpt

    The objective of the study was to compare apical support anatomic outcomes following vaginal mesh procedure (VMP) (Prolift) to uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS) and abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC).

    Title Concordance with Breast Cancer Pathology Reporting Practice Guidelines.
    Date March 2003
    Journal Journal of the American College of Surgeons
    Excerpt

    BACKGROUND: Accurate pathology reporting is important for treatment of breast cancer. The College of American Pathologists (CAP) distributed guidelines for reporting cancer specimens in 1998. The aim of this study was to determine community-wide concordance with CAP breast cancer reporting guidelines. STUDY DESIGN: Pathology reporting of stage I and II breast cancers was examined for adherence to CAP guidelines. Pathology reports were reviewed from 100 consecutive cases of invasive breast cancers referred to Roswell Park Cancer Institute in 1998 to 1999 from community hospitals after excisional breast biopsy and 20 consecutive cases with excisional biopsy at RPCI. Adherence to CAP guidelines for clinically relevant items was determined from the original pathology report in each case. RESULTS: One hundred one cases met the inclusion criteria. Most reports did not include at least one of the guideline required elements. Surgical margins were inked in only 77%, and the margins oriented in only 25% of patients. Many specimens were not oriented by the surgeon. Grade was reported in most cases, but the Bloom Scarf Richardson grade was reported in only 6%. The presence or absence of lymphovascular invasion, and of coexisting in situ disease, was reported in 57% and 71%, respectively. The extent and type of in situ disease was reported in 47% and 49%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Breast cancer pathology reporting varies widely. Key elements that affect treatment are often omitted. These include gross description and size, orientation and involvement of surgical margins, and description of histologic features, including Bloom Scarf Richardson reporting of grade and the extent of an in situ component. Passive distribution of CAP practice guidelines might be insufficient to accomplish community-wide quality improvement in breast pathology reporting.

    Title Social Support for Hiv-infected Mothers: Relation to Hiv Care Seeking.
    Date June 1997
    Journal The Journal of the Association of Nurses in Aids Care : Janac
    Excerpt

    A cross-sectional survey was conducted to identify sources of social support for 92 HIV-seropositive mothers and to examine the relationship between social support and initiation of health care after a positive test for HIV antibody. Main outcome measures were self-reported source and amount of social support and length of time between the first positive HIV antibody test and the first visit for HIV care. Results indicated that HIV-infected mothers frequently delay seeking medical care and report attenuated social support networks. A limited program of HIV counseling and testing during pregnancy is unlikely to ensure that they will enter the healthcare system.

    Title Mri Pelvic Landmark Angles in the Assessment of Apical Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
    Date
    Journal Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics
    Excerpt

    PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pelvic landmark angles and lines in the assessment of apical vault prolapse. METHODS: Seventeen women were evaluated as part of a prospective surgical trial. Baseline data are presented as a pilot study of the utility of MRI in addition to this evaluation of 6 nulliparous volunteers without prolapse and 11 parous women with symptomatic >/= stage II uterine prolapse. Each patient underwent assessment for pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POPQ) and pelvic MRI. Pelvic landmark angles and lines were measured. Mann-Whitney Rank sum test and Spearman's Rank order correlation test were used to assess agreement. RESULTS: Women with prolapse had a significantly larger h angle, g angle, and e angle at rest than those without prolapse. Correlation between apical vault descent was measured clinically by POPQ point C with MRI measurements: h angle (r = 0.61, p = 0.01), g angle (r = 0.64, p = 0.005), and e angle (r = 0.62, p = 0.007). CONCLUSION: MRI measurements of pelvic landmark angles reliably differentiate between women with and without uterine prolapse and correlate best with POPQ point C.
