Abstract
Background: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is cyclic or noncyclic, intermittent or constant discomfort in the pelvic region for at least 6 months. It is a common complaint in female adolescents that may be overlooked.Objective: To evaluate CPP in adolescents using transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) and laparoscopy.Study design: This is a prospective cross sectional observational study conducted at gynecology clinic of Al Azhar University Hospital of Assiut- Egypt. A total of 100 adolescents with CPP were evaluated by TVS and laparoscopy and findings were analyzed. Results: The mean age of adolescents was 17 ± 3.5 the majority were parous (51%), rural (69%) and low social class (65 %(. Diffuse pelvic pain was present in (62%), Dysmenorrhea in (61%), deep abdominal and pelvic tenderness in (55% and 80% respectively). TVS was normal in (40%) and abnormal in (60%). Laparoscopic evaluation was normal in (29%) and abnormal in (71%) in the form of tubo- ovarian masses (19%), endometriosis (18%) ovarian cysts (9%), adenomyosis (8%), Adhesions (6%), PID and RVF uterus (4% for each), subserous fibroid and pelvic congestion (1% for each). sensitivity and specificity of TVS were (81.7% and 93.1% respectively). Positive and negative predictive values were 96.7% and 67.5% respectively. Kappa test between TVS and laparoscopy showed good agreement (kappa = 0.67(.Conclusions: Good agreement was found between TVS and laparoscopy, however, laparoscopy is considered as a gold standard tool in evaluating adolescent CPP because of distinct advantages in terms of sensitivity and negative predictive value.
