The aim of this study was to develop the short form of a condition-specific, reliable, validated and self-administered instrument to evaluate sexual function in women with pelvic organ prolapse and/or urinary incontinence. The Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire –12 (PISQ-12) was developed from the data of 99 of 182 women(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to develop a condition-specific, reliable, validated, and self-administered instrument to evaluate sexual function in women with pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence. STUDY DESIGN The questionnaire was designed after review of the literature and of nonspecific validated instruments. The study was completed in 2 phases. In(More)
A long-term goal of Arabidopsis research is to define the minimal gene set needed to produce a viable plant with a normal phenotype under diverse conditions. This will require both forward and reverse genetics along with novel strategies to characterize multigene families and redundant biochemical pathways. Here we describe an initial dataset of 250 EMB(More)
The objective of this study was to create a valid, reliable, and responsive sexual function measure in women with pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) for both sexually active (SA) and inactive (NSA) women. Expert review identified concept gaps and generated items evaluated with cognitive interviews. Women underwent Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POPQ)(More)
In August 2013, the National Institutes of Health sponsored a conference to address major gaps in our understanding of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management of fecal incontinence (FI) and to identify topics for future clinical research. This article is the first of a two-part summary of those proceedings. FI is a common symptom, with a(More)
The purpose of this study was to measure the internal and external anal sphincters using translabial ultrasound (TLU) at the proximal, mid, and distal levels of the anal sphincter complex. The human review committee approval was obtained and all women gave written informed consent. Sixty women presenting for gynecologic ultrasound for symptoms other than(More)
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (AARSs) are required for translation in three different compartments of the plant cell: chloroplasts, mitochondria and the cytosol. Elimination of this basal function should result in lethality early in development. Phenotypes of individual mutants may vary considerably, depending on patterns of gene expression, functional(More)
OBJECTIVE Uterine leiomyoma produce an extracellular matrix (ECM) that is abnormal in its volume, content, and structure. Alterations in ECM can modify mechanical stress on cells and lead to activation of Rho-dependent signaling and cell growth. Here we sought to determine whether the altered ECM that is produced by leiomyoma was accompanied by an altered(More)
Women with incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse presenting to an urogynecology service were offered referral to a dedicated midwifery pessary clinic. Charts of these women were reviewed for demographic information, physical examination, pelvic floor disorders, and details of pessary-fitting sessions. Successful fitting was defined as a comfortable fit(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess sexual function in women after surgery for stress urinary incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse (UI/POP) at 3 and 6 months with the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ). STUDY DESIGN Of 269 eligible women participating in a trial of prophylactic antibiotic use with(More)
