Open Call Peer Review project
AUGS
In an effort to expand the universe of research viewpoints expressed in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal editors are launching an innovative pilot project: Open Call Peer Review!

Although the process for researchers to submit their latest papers to Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery is simple, the reviews are by invitation-only. In an effort to reach out to everyone in the FPMRS community, the journal editors are opening up the peer review process. Open Call Peer Review aims to incorporate new reviewers — and their unique perspectives — into the article selection process of our journal.

As this is a pilot project, only authors who consent to this process will have their papers included in the Open Call Peer Review project. Participation is entirely voluntary. Please note that only manuscript titles will appear on this blog; author names will not be posted nor will the manuscript itself. The manuscript titles will be posted as they become available for peer review.

Readers who are interested in becoming reviewers for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery are invited to peruse the posted manuscript titles for the Open Call Peer Review project and email Alfred Bent at alfred.bent@gmail.com. In your email please include:
  • Title of the manuscript that you wish to review
  • Prior peer reviewing experience
  • Areas of expertise
  • Conflicts of interest
  • CV as attachment
Requests will be evaluated and responded to on a first-come first-served basis.

Please check this blog often for new titles posted to the Open Call Peer Review project! You can also subscribe to the RSS feed on the journal website to get news of new manuscript titles.

Essential role of transient receptor potential M8 (TRPM8) in a model of acute cold-induced urinary urgency
European Urology via PubMed
Acute exposure of part of the skin to cold stimuli can evoke urinary urgency, a phenomenon termed acute cold-induced urgency. Despite its high prevalence, particularly in patients with overactive bladder, little is known about the mechanisms that induce ACIU.

Serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma: An incidental finding at the time of prophylactic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy
Case Reports in Obstetrics and Gynecolog via PubMed Central
Serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma is a rare pathologic finding at the time of benign gynecologic surgery. It arises in the distal fimbriated end of the fallopian tube and likely represents a precursor lesion to high-grade pelvic serous carcinoma. In this case report, we describe a patient who was unexpectedly found to have STIC at the time of benign gynecologic surgery. We discuss the diagnosis, implications, management options, and prevention strategies for STIC.

The effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation therapy in patients with urinary incontinence resistant to initial medical treatment or biofeedback
Journal of Pediatric Urology
While there are many options for children with treatment refractory urinary incontinence, there is no single accepted method. This study's aim was to prospectively evaluate the effect of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in children with urinary incontinence resistant to standard medical, urological therapy and/or biofeedback.

The impact of boundary conditions on surface curvature of polypropylene mesh in response to uniaxial loading
Journal of Biomechanics
Exposure following pelvic organ prolapse repair has been observationally associated with wrinkling of the implanted mesh. The purpose of this study was to quantify the impact of variable boundary conditions on the out-of-plane deformations of mesh subjected to tensile loading. Using photogrammetry and surface curvature analyses, deformed geometries were accessed for two commercially available products. Relative to standard clamping methods, the amount of out-of-plane deformation significantly increased when point loads were introduced to simulate suture fixation in-vivo. These data support the hypothesis that regional increases in the concentration of mesh potentially enhance the host׳s foreign body response, leading to exposure.

Temporal latency between pelvic floor trauma and presentation for prolapse surgery: A retrospective observational study
International Urogynecology Journal via Springer
Levator avulsion is an etiological factor for female pelvic organ prolapse and generally occurs during a first vaginal birth. However, most women with POP present decades later. This study aimed to estimate latency between pelvic floor trauma and presentation for POP surgery.

Pelvic floor in females with anorectal malformations: Findings on perineal ultrasonography and aspects of delivery mode
Journal of Pediatric Surgery
Advice on the mode of delivery to females born with anorectal malformation is needed. The primary aim was to evaluate the anatomy of the pelvic floor muscles in females with ARM operated with posterior sagittal anorectal plasty. The second aim was to correlate the extent of muscle defects to the bowel symptoms.

Women, regardless of their backgrounds, seek help for the 'got to go' feeling
Medical Xpress
Regardless of their racial, ethnic, educational or socioeconomic background, women seek help for a frustrating — and ubiquitous — feature of becoming "a woman of a certain age:" the need be close to the women's room. Those are the findings of a large study by UC Davis of urinary incontinence in menopausal women, based on data from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation, a nine-year investigation of diverse menopausal women from six sites across the United States. The study is published in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
