Anatomic basis of chronic perineal pain: role of the pudendal nerve

, : Anatomic basis of chronic perineal pain: role of the pudendal nerve. Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy 20(2): 93-98

Our anatomic findings have led us to define conflictual relations that may be encountered in their course by the pudendal n. and its branches. Starting from the clinical study of a group of patients suffering from chronic perineal pain in the seated position, we have defined, beginning with the cadaver, three possible conflictual settings: in the constriction between the sacrotuberal and sacrospinal ligaments; in the pudendal canal of Alcock; and during the straddling of the falciform process of the sacro-tuberal ligament by the pudendal n. and its branches. Consequently, considering so-called idiopathic perineal pain as an entrapment syndrome, the clinical and neurophysiologic arguments and infiltration tests have led us to define a surgical strategy which has currently given 70% of good results in 170 operated patients. Earlier diagnosis should improve on this.

The adaptation of bacteria to mono- and bis-type quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) was carried out and studied. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of bis-QACs against the bacteria in contact with bis-QACs was nearly the same as that aga...

It is well established that specific cancers and immortalized cells have nonrandom chromosome aberrations. However, little is understood about the underlying mechanism that initiates these aberrations in human cells. To examine whether human chrom...
