This is a retrospective chart review using TriHealth Electronic Privacy Identification Center (EPIC) and previously developed databases for TriHealth Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved research studies within the Division of Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery to determine the predictors of postoperative pain specific to the urogynecologic patient population.
Postoperative pain remains the most important consideration for both patients and surgeons. Therefore, there has been much attention brought toward investigating predictive factors of postoperative pain. A systematic review of 48 eligible studies with 23,037 patients showed preexisting pain, anxiety, age, and type of surgery are the four most significant predictive factors for the intensity of postoperative pain (Ip et al., 2009). However, this paper evaluated all types of surgical approaches. More recently, a prospective observational study showed that preoperative State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and Numerical Rating Scales (NRS) for anxiety and pain expectations are independent predictors of pain and morphine consumption following abdominal hysterectomy (Aouad et al., 2016). To date, little is known about the predictive factors of postoperative pain in the urogynecologic patient population.
The purpose of this study is to determine the predictors of postoperative pain specific to the urogynecologic patient population. We aim to investigate the relationship between perioperative factors (such as demographics and medical history) and postoperative pain scores on postoperative day 1 with patients who have undergone urogynecologic surgery, specifically vaginal reconstruction for pelvic organ prolapse.
This information would not only fill a gap in knowledge, but would also allow us to counsel our patients more accurately in regards to postoperative expectations. Furthermore, if we find any positive correlation between modifiable perioperative factors and postoperative pain scores, we may be able to minimize these effects in future surgical cases.

Each surgical intervention associated with even a minor tissue injury is a source of pain which needs to be effectively controlled. Although the Polish national guidelines for post-operati...
The investigators have recently reported a relationship between pain induced by peripheral venous cannulation and postoperative pain. The purpose of this study is to validate this method o...
This study aims to investigate the current organization and management of postoperative pain in Denmark, especially for invasive pain treatment modalities (epidural infusions, PCA and regi...
The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence and risk factors of moderate to severe pain after cardiac surgery, and compare the preoperative pain expectation and postoperative p...
The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to determine whether, "ICE-T," a novel multimodal postoperative pain regimen composed of around the clock ice packs, toradol, and tylenol...
It has previously been reported that venous cannulation-induced pain (VCP) can be used to predict acute postoperative pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Patients rating VCP ≥2.0 visual analogu...
The management of acute postoperative pain remains a significant challenge for physicians. Poorly controlled postoperative pain is associated with poorer overall outcomes.
Multiple factors have been implicated in determining why certain patients have increased postoperative pain, with the potential to develop chronic pain. The purpose of this study was to: 1) identify a...
Although laparoscopic hysterectomy, a worldwide popular surgery, ensures faster recovery and less postoperative pain than with laparotomic hysterectomy, immediate pain control still improving postoper...
The management of postoperative pain and recovery is still unsatisfactory in a number of cases in clinical practice. Opioids used for postoperative analgesia are frequently associated with adverse eff...
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Pain during the period after surgery.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
Abdominal symptoms after removal of the GALLBLADDER. The common postoperative symptoms are often the same as those present before the operation, such as COLIC, bloating, NAUSEA, and VOMITING. There is pain on palpation of the right upper quadrant and sometimes JAUNDICE. The term is often used, inaccurately, to describe such postoperative symptoms not due to gallbladder removal.
Relief of PAIN, without loss of CONSCIOUSNESS, through ANALGESIC AGENTS administered by the patients. It has been used successfully to control POSTOPERATIVE PAIN, during OBSTETRIC LABOR, after BURNS, and in TERMINAL CARE. The choice of agent, dose, and lockout interval greatly influence effectiveness. The potential for overdose can be minimized by combining small bolus doses with a mandatory interval between successive doses (lockout interval).
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
