Authors: Zhang X, Tang X, Ding Y, Hua K Abstract The purpose of this study was to explore the long-term follow-up of treatment of congenital partial vaginal agenesis using the Wharton-Sheares-George technique. The technique was performed on 52 patients with congenital partial vaginal atresia from January 2009 to December 2017. As a result, the mean operating time of the Wharton-Sheares-George technique procedure was 25.6 ± 2.2 min. The mean estimated blood loss was 16.7 ± 4.7 mL. The average length of stay in hospital for the patients was 2.3 ±&t...

We present a laparoscopic surgical approach for hysterectomy in Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome with cervicovaginal agenesis. Laparoscopic approaches for removal of uterine remnants have been published with only reports of laparotomy described for hysterectomy with cervicovaginal agenesis.

This month, Kayla and Lance Edwards welcomed their daughter Indy Pearl Edwards into the world, and became the fourth couple to have a child through the uterus transplant program at Baylor Scott &White Health’s Baylor University Medical Center. The couple would have had a great love story even without those extraordinary circumstances. They attended elementary school together in Vancouver, Wash., lost touch, and then reconnected through social media more than a decade later. After months of chatting through the game “Words with Friends,” they finally went on a date in January 2013 and got engaged about...

This report describes the repair of a complex iatrogenic urethrovaginal injury due to a missed diagnosis of MRKH. Our treatmen t utilized a primary urethroplasty through a transvaginal approach with bladder neck reconstruction and a Martius flap for secondary coverage. Urinary continence was restored post-operatively.

Mayer –Rokitansky–Kuster–Hauser syndrome is the second most common cause of primary amenorrhea, trailing only gonadal dysgenesis. In patients who failed dilation therapy, neovaginoplasty is an appropriate treatment option. Several biomaterials have been used in this procedure, including peritoneum, amnion, skin grafts and myocutaneous flaps. Nile Tilapia Fish Skin has non-infectious microbiota, morphological structure comparable to human skin, and high in vivo bioresorption. In addition, it showed good outcomes when used as a xenograft for burn treatment.

Conclusion: We identified five de novo mutations in BAZ2B, KLHL18, PIK3CD, SLC4A10 and TNK2 by performing WGS, the functional involvement of all deleterious mutations in MRKH candidate genes of the trios warrant further study. WGS may complement conventional array to capture the complete landscape of the genome in MRKH. PMID: 31517310 [PubMed]
