Jab to help infertile men to become fathers
A liquid made from a patient's blood and injected into a sample of their semen could treat male infertility.
New approach could preserve fertility for boys having cancer treatment, say scientists.
This article provides an overview of the latest techniques and devices used for uterine-sparing surgical treatment of fibroids. While laparoscopic myomectomy is still the gold standard, novel laparoscopic and transcervical radiofrequency ablation techniques use low-voltage and alternating current to induce heat in the uterine tissue, which triggers necrosis in fibroids. This enables the removal of multiple fibroids without the need for large incisions in the uterine wall. In addition, we address the benefits and potential risks, as well as the impact on fertility and pregnancy, of the different surgical approaches used for...

ConclusionsAdhesive small bowel disease (ASBD) and small bowel obstruction are a major cause of patient distress and financial and clinical practice burden. It is usually a diagnosis of exclusion and leads to delayed treatment and morbidity. Many preventive techniques and materials are being tested to prevent adhesion formation. A lot more needs to be done to prevent, in the first place, the formation of adhesions or treat this condition to reduce such morbid outcomes as strangulation or transection of gut.
CONCLUSION: For the first time we demonstrate that OCP is an effective therapy for non-atypical EH and is associated with higher remission rate compared with oral progestin. Reproductive outcomes are reassuring and comparable between the two groups. PMID: 30887764 [PubMed - in process]
