Pelvic floor myofascial pain and dysfunction: etiologies, associated symptoms, and strategies for assessment

Sep 16, 2020 7:00pm ‐ Sep 16, 2020 8:00pm

Identification: web200916

Credits: None available.

Myofascial pain is a chronic musculoskeletal pain disorder characterized by the presence of contracted bands of skeletal muscle that often contain trigger points. In the pelvic floor, myofascial pain has been described arising within the muscles of the levator ani (puborectalis, pubococcygeus, and iliococcygeus) and internal hip (obturator internus). Unfortunately, pelvic floor myofascial pain is infrequently considered among the differential diagnoses for patients with pelvic floor symptoms, despite growing recognition of an underlying association. In addition, until recently a validated pelvic floor myofascial examination did not exist. In this course, we will review the anatomy and function of the pelvic floor musculature. Through a review of the literature, we will discuss the pathophysiology and development of myofascial pain in these muscles and explore the prevalence of pelvic floor myofascial pain in various patient populations, including patients with other pelvic floor symptoms. We will describe and demonstrate a validatedpelvic floor myofascial examination.

Learning Objectives:

  • To review the anatomy and function of the muscles of the pelvic floor
  • To discuss the pathophysiology and development of myofascial dysfunction and pain within the pelvic floor muscles
  • To describe the etiology and prevalence of pelvic floor myofascial pain through review of the current literature on the topic
  • To discuss pelvic floor symptoms associated with and related to underlying pelvic floor myofascial dysfunction/pain
  • To describe and demonstrate a standardized 65t screening pelvic floor myofascial examination for clinical use

This webinar is designed to teach residents, fellows, and faculty-specific actions and techniques that have proven successful in turning resident research from a taxing graduation requirement into a fulfilling experience that ultimately results in abstract presentations and publications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn techniques to identify and foster the most productive mentor and mentee relationships.
  • Identify appropriate trainee goals for completing research. Don't shoot too high or too low.
  • Learn to utilize existing trainee and faculty skillsets to maximize mentorship relationships and research productivity.
  • Learn to exploit the unique advantages of your specific patient population for maximal research productivity.

Finding Efficiencies and Enjoying My Practice

Jul 15, 2020 7:00pm ‐ Jul 15, 2020 8:00pm

Identification: web200715

Credits: None available.

Hopefully, I can add a few insights about ways to improve efficiency in your practice through experiences I have had over time. Sometimes comparing experiences can be valuable, but especially if those experiences were based on reproducible data that can inform decisions and drive growth that is sustainable and successful. One key focus will be marketing ourselves and our practice. The purpose of this webinar is to present a basis for knowing how to grow a practice and develop a career in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand ways to improve office efficiency.
  • Understand how to evaluate change in personnel and growth.
  • Find ways to increase workload without increasing work.
  • Determine ways to grow and use marketing.

Identification: web200610

Credits: None available.

Learn how to prevent or address problems related to use of SNM for bladder and bowel indications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review optimal lead placement and assess whether previously placed leads are
  • Learn how to decide when lead revision is indicated.
  • Plan how to avoid or resolve concerns related to pocket site.
  • Develop strategies to minimize or resolve wound infection.

Why Aren't My Laxatives Working? A Primer On the Role of The Pelvic Floor In the Development of Chronic Constipation

May 13, 2020 7:00pm ‐ May 13, 2020 8:00pm

Identification: web200513

Credits: None available.

Chronic constipation is a common disorder yet it can be very hard to treat. Historically practitioners have rationalized constipation as a single disorder responsive to laxatives. However, a significant percentage of individuals failed to respond to these interventions. In these cases symptoms may be due to dysfunction of the pelvic floor (more specifically the rectum, puborectalis and/or internal and external anal sphincters). Pelvic floor dysfunction (or dyssynergic defecation) is usually identified via anorectal manometry/balloon expulsion testing and the gold-standard of treatments is pelvic floor physical therapy and biofeedback, not laxatives. This webinar will discuss when to obtain testing for pelvic floor dysfunction, how to test and predominate treatments for this condition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine when in the evaluation of constipation an assessment of the pelvic floor is warranted.
  • Implement the appropriate diagnostic strategy for the evaluation of chronic constipation.
  • Understand the tools used to identify pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • Understand why pelvic floor physical therapy and biofeedback are first-line treatments for obstructive defecation.

This webinar will focus on reconstructive options for the female genital area. The presentation will concentrate on flap options for reconstruction, and will include a discussion of indications, flap anatomy and surgical technique, and results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize indications for flap reconstructions.
  • Understand commonly used flaps for female genital reconstruction.

Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy: Tips & Tricks

Mar 11, 2020 7:00pm ‐ Mar 11, 2020 8:00pm

Identification: web200311

Credits: None available.

Minimally invasive sacrocolpopexy is becoming a more commonly performed procedure for both primary and recurrent pelvic organ prolapse. In this webinar, we will discuss pre-operative evaluation and planning for variations of sacrocolpopexy procedures, as well as techniques to improve the safety and efficacy of the procedure.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how preoperative evaluation of prolapse should influence the type of sacrocolpopexy performed.
  • Describe several techniques the surgeon can employ to improve exposure at the sacral promontory to allow safe dissection and suture placement.
  • Identify techniques to improve the efficiency and safety of suture placement and knot tying.
  • Describe different approaches to uterine preservation sacrohysteropexy.
