Multidisciplinary treatment on vulvodynia – where is the evidence?
Vulvodynia is a chronic pain syndrome in vulva with a prevalence of nearly 15%. Due to poorly understood pathophysiology and lack of efficient treatment frustration is vastly spread among affected women and their physicians. Behavioural, medical and surgical interventions are widely used, but hardly any of them show significance compared to placebo effect. A multidisciplinary treatment is considered to be the new state of the art treatment, but evidence for such a model is hard to find. This article is a review and evaluation of the many treatment models and their evidence.
