Can the impact of pelvic inflammatory disease on fertility be prevented? Epidemiology, clinical features and surgical treatment: evolution over 8 years.

Clinical presentation is fundamental in diagnostic counseling but should be supplemented with further laboratory tests to detect inflammation and sonograms, and c-reactive protein (CRP) and D-dimer values may represent useful parameters to consider when planning patient management.

The Impact of Age and Intrauterine Contraception on the Clinical Course of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Age over 35 years and IUD use, independently of each other, were factors strongly associated with an increased risk of surgery for PID as a result of failed conservative treatment.

The value of C-reactive protein in emergency medicine

Relationships between transvaginal colour Doppler findings, infectious parameters and visual analogue scale scores in patients with mild acute pelvic inflammatory disease.

Triple Therapies Versus Clindamycin Plus Gentamicin in The Treatment of Acute Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, A Randomized Controlled Trial

For the treatment of acute PID, triple therapies and clindamycin plus gentamicin were not significantly different in the response rate at 72 hours, but the need for surgical intervention was higher in the triple therapies group.

Reduction in hospitalized women with pelvic inflammatory disease in Oslo over the past decade

The aim of the study was to identify changes during the last 10 years in the number of women hospitalized with PID in Oslo, as well as a change regarding the frequencies of the subdiagnoses salpingitis and tuboovarian abscess.

Letter by Cheong regarding article, "Association between stroke and patients with pelvic inflammatory disease: a nationwide population-based study in Taiwan".

The study demonstrated that women between age 18 to 60 years with PID were more likely to have ischemic strokes than were the control population in a 3-year follow-up period based on a nationwide population-based database.

The Clinical Appearance of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease in Relation to Use of Intrauterine Device in Latvia : A Study with Special Emphasis on Factors Influencing the Clinical Course of PID in IUD Users

The objectives of this case-control study, investigating 51 in-patient women with acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and 50 healthy women attending for routine gynecological check-up, were to investigate the role of EMTs in the development of pelvic organ prolapse preoperatively and in women with PID.



C-reactive protein in the evaluation of antibiotic therapy for pelvic infection.

Quantitative measures of serum CRP obtained concomitantly with white blood counts and erythrocyte sedimentation rates in patients being treated for pelvic infection suggest that CRP may be used to assess the efficacy of antibiotic therapy in pelvic infection and that the use of multiple antibiotics is unnecessary and CRP levels can indicate when additional antibiotics are appropriate.

C-reactive protein in assessing antimicrobial treatment of acute pelvic inflammatory disease.

Serial serum C-reactive protein (CRP) determinations were used in the evaluation of antimicrobial treatment of acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and were a useful predictor of the short-term response to antimicrobial therapy.

C‐reactive protein is a marker for the diagnosis of adnexitis

Use of C-reactive protein to predict the outcome of medical management of tuboovarian abscesses.

C-reactive protein (CRP), an acute-phase-reactant protein with a short half-life, was investigated as a possible predictor of response by TOA patients to medical therapy.

Acute Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Characteristics of Patients with Gonococcal and Nongonococcal Infection and Evaluation of Their Response to Treatment with Aqueous Procaine Penicillin G and Spectinomycin Hydrochloride

Data show that gonococcal and nongonococcal pelvic inflammatory disease differ in initial clinical severity, response to treatment, and long-term complications, and support the concept that gonitiscal pelvicinflammatory disease and nONGonococ Calypso inflammatory disease are separate clinical entities.



Studies bearing on the site and mechanisms of regulation of CRP biosynthesis are reviewed in the hope that they will afford insights into the adaptive and defense mechanisms contributing to the host response to infection and tissue injury, and to the interrelationships between tissue Injury, the acute phase response, inflammation and tissue repair.

Criteria for diagnosis and grading of salpingitis [editorial]

After an accurate diagnosis has been made there should be a determination if the patient can be treated as an out-patient or needs to be hospitalized and it is then necessary to use antibiotic therapy and follow up to see if the patients is responding to the treatment.
