Síndrome de Dolor Pélvico Miofascial Masculino ¿A qué se debe su importancia para la Urología?

ABSTRACT El conocimiento del síndrome de dolor miofascial, trastorno no inflamatorio que se manifiesta por dolor localizado, contractura muscular y la presencia de punto(s) gatillo, resulta fundamental en la practica urológica. Es de gran importancia para el medico urólogo, que debe enfrentarse en el día a día, con pacientes que presentan diagnósticos de síndrome de vejiga dolorosa/cistitis intersticial y también con pacientes que presentan síndrome de prostatitis crónica/dolor crónico pelviano masculino. Estos pacientes han sido siempre un reto para el médico urólogo debido a que su tratamiento no resulta fácil y el paciente arrastra múltiples problemas ocasionados por la enfermedad de base. En los programas de estudios universitarios tanto de la carrera de Medicina como la del Postgrado de Urología, no se incluye el síndrome miofascial, así como ningún desorden neuromuscular, por lo cual creemos importante la información suministrada en éste artículo de revisión, para poder ampliar el panorama diagnostico del urólogo.

    ABSTRACT: Two hundred and eighty-three chronic pain patients, consecutive admissions to the Comprehensive Pain Center of the University of Miami School of Medicine, received an extensive psychiatric evaluation based upon the American Psychiatric Association, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III) criteria and flowsheets. All patients received the following type of diagnoses: DSM-III axis I; DSM-III axis II, and personality type. The distribution of assigned diagnoses for the entire patient sample was reviewed and a statistical comparison between male and female patients was performed with regards to the prevalence of each diagnosis. Anxiety syndromes and depression of various diagnostic types were the most frequently assigned axis I diagnoses with over half the patient sample receiving each of these diagnoses. Males were significantly overrepresented in the axis I diagnoses of intermittent explosive disorders, adjustment disorders with work inhibitions, and alcohol abuse and other drug dependence, while females were significantly overrepresented in disorders of current depression of various diagnostic types and somatization disorders.58.4% of the patients fulfilled criteria for axis II personality disorder diagnoses. The most frequently personality disorders found in the patient group were dependent (17.4%), passive aggressive (14.9%), and histrionic (11.7%). Males were significantly overrepresented in paranoid and narcissistic disorders while females were overrepresented in histrionic disorder. The most frequent personality types found in the patient group were compulsive (24.5%) and dependent (10.6%). All personality types were similarly distributed between the sexes. The results of the present study were compared to a previous study of DSM-III diagnoses in chronic pain patients and are discussed in terms of the prevalence of DSM-III diagnoses in the general population. Questions are raised as to the applicability of certain DSM-III diagnoses in the chronic pain population.

    ABSTRACT: Myofascial pain as a cause of chronic pelvic pain with or without pelvic organ pathology is well-documented in the literature. Causes of this pain are multifactorial, including specific pelvic organ pathologies, neuromuscular disorders, and psychologic causes. Management of this myofascial component of chronic pelvic pain involves a multidisciplinary approach including physicians, physical therapists, neurologists, and psychiatrists. Treatment strategies, including behavioral management, medications, physical therapy, trigger point injections, neuromodulation, botulinum toxin injection, and other lesser known treatment modalities, are discussed in detail in this article.
