Authors: Fung C, Dinh P, Ardeshir-Rouhani-Fard S, Schaffer K, Fossa SD, Travis LB Abstract Testicular cancer has become the paradigm of adult-onset cancer survivorship, due to the young age at diagnosis and 10-year relative survival of 95%. This clinical review presents the current status of various treatment-related complications experienced by long-term testicular cancer survivors (TCS) free of disease for 5 or more years after primary treatment. Cardiovascular disease and second malignant neoplasms represent the most common potentially life-threatening late effects. Other long-term adverse outcomes include neuro...

A top question underlying clinical research is, “How can we do better?” One of the easiest opportunities for advancing reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) is to take familiar procedures and slightly modify them in order to provide more efficient or effective care than previously achieved. Managing cervical ectopic pregnancy with methotrexate and potassium chloride through technique parallel to follicular aspiration allows safer and more effective treatment than with dilation and curettage or systemic methotrexate.

ConclusionsOur data could contribute to explain the hypothesized increased cardiovascular risk and vascular damage in patients with PCOS. A better understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in cardiometabolic disorders associated with PCOS is mandatory to identify new therapeutic strategies to eventually prevent the progression of cardiovascular diseases in these patients.

Authors: Billero V, Miteva M Abstract Traction alopecia (TA) affects one-third of women of African descent who wear various forms of traumatic hairstyling for a prolonged period of time. The risk of TA is increased by the extent of pulling and duration of traction, as well as the use of chemical relaxation. The frequent use of tight buns or ponytails, the attachment of weaves or hair extensions, and tight braids (such as cornrows and dreadlocks) are believed to be the highest risk hairstyles. TA can also occur in the setting of religious and occupational traumatic hairstyling. In its later stages, the disease may p...

In this study, we aimed to examine sexual function in women with PCOS, exposed to maternal androgen excess during their prenatal life compared to non-exposed PCOS patients. In this cross-sectional study, 768 married women with PCOS, aged 18-49 years, were subdivided into two groups, based on their mothers' PCOS status: women whose mothers had PCOS (N = 94) and women whose mothers did not have PCOS (N = 674). Data were collected using a questionnaire including information on demographics, anthropometric and reproductive characteristics, and the Female Sexual Function Index. Blood serum samples were ...

Key content The symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) include menstrual cycle disturbance and features of hyperandrogenism (hirsutism, acne and alopecia), with associated fertility problems, obesity and psychological issues. There are ethnic variations in expression of PCOS related to differences in insulin metabolism and this may impact upon treatment algorithms. Obesity has a major impact on the expression of PCOS and the efficacy of the management of all aspects of the syndrome, in particular infertility. The management of anovulatory infertility involves lifestyle modification and therapies to induce ovulati...

Authors: Laggari V, Christogiorgos S, Deligeoroglou E, Tsiantis J, Creatsas G Abstract Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome (MRKHS) is characterized by complete or partial absence of the vagina, uterus and proximal fallopian tubes and diagnosis is usually made in late adolescence, when primary amenorrhea appears as the major symptom. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which is the most common endocrine disorder among women of reproductive age, includes a variety of clinical manifestations (menstrual irregularities, hirsuitism, acne, alopecia, obesity and infertility), due to androgen hypersecretion, insulin ...
