Noncyclic Chronic Pelvic Pain Therapies for Women
Comparative Effectiveness of Surgical Interventions for Noncyclic CPP: Pain and Quality-of-Life Outcomes (2 of 2)
The relative effectiveness of LUNA and uterosacral ligament resection and the relative effectiveness of surgical and non-surgical therapy in improving pain in patients with CPP were assessed in a small RCT and a prospective cohort study, respectively. Evidence from these studies was insufficient to permit conclusions about the relative effectiveness of these interventions on pain status in patients with CPP.
