Marek Jantos has been asked to address the Annual National Conference of Gynaecologists in China, in March 2015 outlining developments in the management of chronic urogenital pain. The conference has an expected attendance of approximately 7-8000 delegates.
The editors and publishers of the Textbook on Pelvic Floor Disorders have invited Marek Jantos to contribute a revised chapter on Surface Electromyography and Myofascial Therapy in the Management of Pelvic Pain Disorders. The newly edited text will be in print later in 2017.
Marek Jantos was the keynote speaker at the National BFE Conference in Xian speaking on the management of chronic urogenital pain. This was Marek’s 7th visit to China. A highlight of the visit included meetings and discussions with several senior leaders of the Chinese Medical Association. Several visits are being planned for 2017.
In conjunction with Europe’s prominent Radiologist, Professor Paweł Wieczorek and his team, Marek Jantos, Dr Ewa Baszak-Ramonska and Sherie Johns have commenced trial studies on the impact of myofascial therapy on pelvic vascularity in chronic urogenital pain cases. A cohort of women suffering severe chronic urogenital pain underwent ultrasound studies pre and post treatment to study to impact of therapy on blood perfusion in the pelvic region. The data is currently being analysed and prepared for publication. Further radiology studies are being planned.
Marek Jantos has developed and is patent right holder on two new patented projects, one a new 4 Channel EMG project to be tested using MRI and Electromyography which has the potential to change the way pelvic muscle function is evaluated. The other project developed in conjunction with Sherie Johns involves electronic pain mapping software to be used with a patient tablet and office computer during patient assessment.
Marek Jantos, Sherie Johns and Ewa Baszak-Radomanska are conducting further validation studies for the pain mapping protocols. This marks the next stage of the development of the pain mapping instrument. They are preparing several new upcoming publications based on the analysis of data from approximately 350 pain maps of various chronic urogenital pain conditions, gynaecological disorders and control groups. The initial data analyses show interesting trends that will have implications for the diagnosis and management of chronic urogenital pain conditions.
