Chronic pelvic pain is a highly prevalent but challenging diagnosis that affects 15% of women. With over 40% of gynecologic laparoscopies performed for chronic pelvic pain, it is important to understand and work up patients for various origins. This course provides a guide to approaching patients who continue to have pelvic pain despite undergoing operative laparoscopy or resection of endometriosis. It will focus on the most common causes of chronic pelvic pain associated with endometriosis including bladder pain syndrome, hypertonic pelvic floor disorders, and irritable bowel syndrome.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Identify common causes of persistent chronic pelvic pain that is not alleviated after gynecologic surgery; 2) Implement a diagnostic process for evaluation of theses causes, and; 3) Recommend appropriate treatment options.
