IMS Live 4 Sep 2023: The reverse of reproductive aging: ovarian recovery through autologous platelet-rich plasma
With the increase in health and life expectancy, the number of menopausal women has increased significantly. In parallel, there has been a reduction of birth rates influenced by women having their first maternity in an advanced age. Both trends have an impact on national demographics and impose a socioeconomic challenge for which there is no current solution. Women with symptomatic menopause and those with infertility/miscarriage may take advantage of standard therapies such as menopause hormone therapy (MHT) or in vitro fertilization, respectively...

IMS Live 11 Sep 2023: Associations between dietary patterns and an array of inflammation biomarkers and plasma lipid profile in postmenopausal women
Recently, Ilesanmi-Oyelere et al. [1] reported the results of a cross-sectional study that evaluated the association between four dietary patterns, nutrients and food intakes and an array of systemic inflammation biomarkers and lipid profile among 80 postmenopausal women from New Zealand. The authors used a food frequency questionnaire to collect nutrients and food intake. Four dietary patterns were identified by principal component analysis (PCA) and plasma samples collected for the measuring of inflammatory biomarkers and lipid profile. The authors found that there were negative correlations between intake of dietary fiber, soluble and insoluble non-starch polysaccharides (NSP), vitamin C and niacin and almost all the inflammatory markers for the whole group...

IMS Live 18 Sep 2023: Continuous transdermal nitroglycerin does not decrease hot flush frequency and severity in peri- and postmenopausal women: results of a Randomized Placebo Controlled Clinical Trial
There has been an increase in the use of non-hormonal options to treat hot flashes among many menopausal women, basically due to the potential risks of long-term systemic estrogen therapy. Physiologic studies have shown that nitric oxide is pivotal in mediating vasodilation related to hot flash. Hence, it can be suggested that non-hormonal medications that induce nitrate tolerance in the vasculature may offer therapeutic benefit for vasomotor symptoms. Bearing this in mind, recently, Huang et al. [1] carried out a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial that included peri- or postmenopausal women that reported 7 or more hot flashes per day, in order to determine if the uninterrupted administration of transdermal nitroglycerin (NTG, aimed to induce nitrate cross-tolerance) would decrease the frequency or severity of menopause-related hot flashes...

Cardiovascular Disease and Menopause - video
Dr Erin Michos discusses how the menopause transition influences cardiometabolic risk factors and the relationship between vasomotor symptoms and heart disease. She reviews that early onset of menopause in women before age 45 years is considered a risk factor.

Practice Pearl: Primary Ovarian Insufficiency
