  • IC's Role in CAPPS IC's Role in CAPPS Robert J. Echenberg, MD, FACOG Recorded: Apr 4 2013 88 mins
    What is CAPPS? … short for Complex Abdominal -Pelvic Pain Syndrome, CAPPS is a syndrome of nonmalignant origin consisting of a complex of abdominal and pelvic symptoms that includes a variety of painful bowel, bladder, genital, reproductive, muscular and nerve dysfunctions lasting at least 3-6 months in duration.

    Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome (IC/PBS) patients often have overlapping chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, vulvodynia, endometriosis, pudendal neuralgia, pain with sexual intimacy, pelvic floor dysfunction, obstructing adhesions, lichen sclerosis, and even TMJ, as well as psycho-social issues that often develop as a result of these difficult conditions.

    Attempting to treat these disorders as separate entities is often a frustrating task for patients and practitioners alike. Although these conditions may start out separately, they may be better diagnosed, assessed and treated as essentially connected disorders of pain processing in the pelvic region — CAPPS.

    In this webinar, Robert J. Echenberg, MD, FACOG, will discuss not only IC/PBS’s role in CAPPS, but also the multi-disciplinary and holistic approach that is needed in order to most effectively treat what most practitioners call “chronic pelvic pain (CPP). He will explain how IC/PBS should be considered as a “major player” in the broader context of “connecting the dots” in this family of all too common and debilitating conditions.

    This ICA webinar is made possible with the generous support of Innovation Compounding.
