Consensus Conference on Vulvovaginal Pain held in Annapolis

Dr Dellon was invited to present his conception of the role of peripheral nerves in the mechanism of pelvic pain at a Consensus Conference on Vulvovaginal Pain held in Annapolis, Maryland on April 8 and 9, 2015. His position is that pudendal neuralgia should be replace by naming the branch of the pudendal nerve that is involved and whether there is a nerve compression or a nerve injury (neuroma). This distinction has not previously been made, with essentially all pudendal nerve patients being treated as if they had a compression of the main pudendal nerve deep within the buttock at the sacrotuberous ligament. Many patients have their problem more anteriorly where the surgical approach Dr Dellon developed can help them.
