Authors: Bartoš V, Korec P, Ficek R Abstract Leiomyomas are the most common benign tumor of the uterus. Occasionally, they may reach an extreme dimension. The authors present a case of a 44-year old woman, who suffered a car accident as a driver of personal motor vehicle. At the hospital, a huge tumor mass filling the entire abdominopelvic cavity was incidentally detected. The patient admitted a progressive abdominal enlargement for the last 5 years. An urgent laparotomy was performed, during which a giant, well-demarcated tumor arising from the uterine body had been disclosed. It was completely surgically r...

Some of these lesions share the expression of CD34, posing differential diagnostic problems, especially in core biopsies. Recently, antibodies against the STAT6 C-terminal, are being used in paraffin-embedded tissues as a surrogate for identifying the NAB2–STA6 fusion gene which is considered a specific molecular marke...

Abstract Uterine leiomyoma is a benign tumor that grows within the muscle tissue of the uterus. Ulipristal acetate (UPA) is a pre‑operative drug used to reduce the size of leiomyoma. The aim of the present study was to examine the in vitro mechanistic details of action of UPA on uterine leiomyomas. Primary cultures of leiomyoma cells were isolated from patient myomectomy specimens and incubated in the presence or absence of UPA at various concentrations. The proliferation, cell viability and doubling time properties of the treated cells were analyzed. In addition, the mRNA and protein expression levels of p...

Resveratrol inhibits human leiomyoma cell proliferation via crosstalk between integrin αvβ3 and IGF-1R. Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Jul 17;: Authors: Ho Y, Sh Yang YC, Chin YT, Chou SY, Chen YR, Shih YJ, Whang-Peng J, Changou CA, Liu HL, Lin SJ, Tang HY, Lin HY, Davis PJ Abstract Leiomyomas (myomas) are the most common benign smooth muscle cell tumor of the myometrium. Resveratrol, a stilbene, has been used as an anti-inflammatory and antitumor agent. In the current study, we investigated the inhibitory effect of resveratrol on the proliferation of primary human myoma cell cultures. Resveratrol...

Abstract Emergencies involving the inguinal region and scrotum are common and can be caused by a plethora of different causes. In most cases, such conditions have nonspecific symptoms and are quite painful. Some inguinoscrotal conditions have high complication rates. Early and accurate diagnosis is therefore imperative. Ultrasound is the method of choice for the initial evaluation of this vast range of conditions, because it is a rapid, ionizing radiation-free, low-cost method. Despite the practicality and accuracy of the method, which make it ideal for use in emergency care, the examiner should be experienced and should b...

CONCLUSION: Paraurethral leiomyoma is a rare, hormone-dependent, benign tumor of mesenchymal origin. Surgical excision is necessary for discrimination from sarcoma. One should be cautious of urethral injury during the excision. PMID: 29999298 [PubMed - in process]

The Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database may be useful for clinicians using a Food and Drug Administration-approved medical device to identify the occurrence of adverse events and complications. We sought to analyze and investigate reports associated with uterine artery embolization used for treatment of fibroids using this database.

Uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) are the most common type of uterine neoplasms in premenopausal women. Leiomyomas are estrogen dependent and tend to atrophy and shrink in size after menopause. Dystrophic calcification, cystic changes, and necrosis are among the changes that indicate uterine fibroid involution. We are presenting a calcified uterine leiomyoma in a 61-year-old woman as incidentally detected on 18F-NaF PET/CT scanning. Many previous publications have reported the accumulation of 18F-NaF in soft tissue calcifications; these findings further set new directions in the evaluation of the metabolic activity of macrocal...
