OBJECTIVE: To identify static and time-varying sociodemographic, clinical, health-related quality-of-life and attitudinal predictors of use and satisfaction with hysterectomy for noncancerous conditions. METHODS: The Study of Pelvic Problems, Hysterectomy, and Intervention Alternatives (SOPHIA) was conducted from 1998 to 2008. English-, Spanish-, or Chinese-speaking premenopausal women (n=1,420) with intact uteri who had sought care for pelvic pressure, bleeding, or pain from an academic… Expand
Contributions of Hysterectomy and Uterus-Preserving Surgery to Health-Related Quality of Life
TLDR
Understanding health-related quality-of-life trajectories may enhance counseling for women deciding between hysterectomy and alternative interventions and women seeking care for noncancerous uterine conditions can expect to experience improvement over time. Expand
Identifying What Matters to Hysterectomy Patients: Postsurgery Perceptions, Beliefs, and Experiences.
TLDR
There is a need for increased education and empowerment in the decision making process, while expanding on information given for post-operative expectations and somatic changes that occur post-hysterectomy. Expand
Prevalence and use of complementary health approaches among women with chronic pelvic pain in a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
The substantial interest in and high prevalence of complementary health approaches used alongside conventional medical approaches highlight the need for better understanding of multimodal approaches to address the complex condition of CPP. Expand
Use of medical, surgical and complementary treatments among women with fibroids.
TLDR
UPS are effective treatments for women with fibroids, but many women use hormonal or complementary treatments and report significant symptom improvement without surgical intervention. Expand
The Impact of Different Surgical Modalities for Hysterectomy on Satisfaction and Patient Reported Outcomes
TLDR
Significantly better outcomes were evident among women who had vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic procedures than among those who had an abdominal procedure, and robotics was the only modality that independently predicted greater satisfaction and willingness to recommend and have the same procedure again. Expand
Symptom resolution after hysterectomy and alternative treatments for chronic pelvic pain: does depression make a difference?
TLDR
Depression does not influence substantially treatment-related gains in CPP symptom resolution and health-related quality of life and Coexisting depression should not delay treatment for CPP. Expand
Success of uterus-preserving treatments for abnormal uterine bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, and symptomatic fibroids: age and bridges to menopause.
TLDR
Women who are ≥40 years old when they undergo their first uterus-preserving treatment experience greater symptom resolution than younger women, and Framing UPTs as hysterectomy alternatives may be accurate only for a subset of women who are > 40 years old. Expand
Subjective social status and depression symptoms: a prospective study of women with noncancerous pelvic problems.
TLDR
Low perceived community social status is predictive of symptoms suggestive of major or other depressive disorder among women with noncancerous uterine conditions, and asking about perceived national social status does not seem to add value beyond that provided by income and education. Expand
Patient-Reported Experiences After Hysterectomy: A Cross-Sectional Study of the Views of Over 2300 Women
TLDR
Compared with those who received a less invasive approach to hysterectomy, women who received open surgery were more likely to express negative experiences relating to their hospital stay and recovery from surgery. Expand
Prevalence and Incidence of Urinary Incontinence in a Diverse Population of Women With Noncancerous Gynecologic Conditions
TLDR
Urinary incontinence is very common in women seeking care for noncancerous gynecologic conditions, particularly among older, parous Latinas, and in women who underwent hysterectomy. Expand

TLDR
Symptom relief following hysterectomy is associated with a marked improvement in quality of life, and the development of new symptoms or problems during the year following surgery is identified. Expand
Effect of Noncancerous Pelvic Problems on Health-Related Quality of Life and Sexual Functioning
TLDR
Noncancerous pelvic problems are associated with serious decrements in health-related quality of life and sexual functioning and low rates of treatment satisfaction. Expand
Predictors of hysterectomy in women with common pelvic problems: a uterine survival analysis.
TLDR
For women with common pelvic problems, three easily measured clinical characteristics (symptom combination, degree of resolution, and earlier use of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist) predict the likelihood of subsequent hysterectomy and can be used to inform counseling about the likely success of alternative treatments. Expand
Patient satisfaction with results of hysterectomy.
TLDR
The factor most strongly and consistently associated with patient reports of negative outcomes was readmission because of a postdischarge complication. Expand
Probability of Hysterectomy After Endometrial Ablation
TLDR
Age is more important than type of procedure or presence of leiomyomas in predicting subsequent hysterectomy after endometrial ablation, and rather than plateauing within several years of endometriablation, hystrectomy risk continues to increase through 8 years of follow-up. Expand

TLDR
Continuing monitoring of hysterectomy rates provides an indication of female reproductive health and how women are being treated for selected reproductive problems. Expand
Health-related quality of life measures for women with urinary incontinence: the Incontinence Impact Questionnaire and the Urogenital Distress Inventory. Continence Program in Women (CPW) Research Group.
TLDR
Data is presented on two new condition-specific instruments designed to assess the HRQOL of UI in women: the Urogenital Distress Inventory (UDI) and the Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ), developed for simple, self-administration. Expand

TLDR

Predictors of hysterectomy after uterine artery embolization for leiomyoma.
TLDR
Uterine artery embolization for leiomyoma permits uterine conservation in more than 80% of women monitored long-term, and when bilateral procedures cannot be performed, failure rates are considerably higher. Expand
Cross-validation of item selection and scoring for the SF-12 Health Survey in nine countries: results from the IQOLA Project. International Quality of Life Assessment.
TLDR
The SF-12 will prove to be a practical alternative to the SF-36 in these countries, for purposes of large group comparisons in which the focus is on overall physical and mental health outcomes. Expand
