Perceptions of women on the impact of menorrhagia on their health using multi-attribute utility assessment

British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
R W ShawM J Edwards


To assess patient preferences regarding the treatment of menorrhagia using the multi-attribute utility methodologies, to produce a clinically applicable scale, and to assess health outcomes following treatment of menorrhagia. Women referred to the gynaecology department for the treatment of menorrhagia were interviewed regarding the effects of menorrhagia on different aspects of their life. Their concerns were categorised into main components of health (domains). The relative importance of each domain was rated by the women using importance points which were distributed to represent the perceived importance of each domain. A series of statements (intra-domain statements) was developed for each domain, which described various possible conditions of that component of health. These were also rated using a one metre visual analogue scale with numerical anchor points at zero (worst) and 100 (best). The components of health considered most important were, in order of impact, family life, followed by physical health, work life, psychological health, practical difficulties and social life. The scores for the intra-domain statements were combined into a scale to allow the calculation of a final health state utility for a particular outc...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
