Hi all. There is an excellent blog posted today concerning Dr. Pacik’s podium presentation at the 34th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urogynecologic Society discussing the use of Botox to treat vaginismus. About 1200 participants attended the lecture.
Excerpts from the Blog include:
“Specific areas of presentation included: the struggles that women experience who have vaginismus, the need to stratify the severity of vaginismus using the Lamont and Pacik systems of classification, choosing the appropriate treatment for vaginismus, an analysis of prior treatments that were unsuccessful in this group of vaginismus patients, vaginismus treatment using Botox under anesthesia, importance of combining progressive dilation during vaginismus treatment, post procedure counseling, and the need to fully support these patients during their follow up. The long term benefits showed that 97% of the patients were able to achieve pain free intercourse, or in the two patients without partners, the use of the large dilators without pain. After vaginismus treatment with Botox there were no adverse events and no recurrences.”
