  4. Brochure, Fact Sheet: Changes in Pelvic Floor Function at Childbirth and After Delivery

    309

    By: Anne M Weber, MD, MS

    There is no doubt that the structures of the pelvis go through dramatic changes during pregnancy and at the time of vaginal childbirth. For vaginal childbirth to occur, the baby must be able to fit past the pelvic muscles and connective tissue. There is usually some amount of stretching or tearing that allows this to happen. 

    Can the management of pregnancy or delivery be modified to minimize the chance of injury? If injury occurs, what can be done to maximize the chance of recovery so that symptoms do not develop? What treatments are available?

  10. Fact Sheet: Chlorophyllin: Is it Effective Odor Control?

    107

    By: Richard Nelson, MD

    Odor is what informs those around you that you have a problem with your bowel or bladder control. It causes a great deal of distress. This was also the case with patients with colostomies before good stoma appliances became available, which was about thirty to thirty-five years ago. Since the output could not be directly controlled, attention was turned to control of the odor. There were several ways in which odor was addressed – changes in diet and medication. The medications used were charcoal in various forms, which is still used commonly today, and a product that is seldom seen today, chlorophyllin.
