Authors: Bulun SE, Yilmaz BD, Sison C, Miyazaki K, Bernardi L, Liu S, Kohlmeier A, Yin P, Milad M, Wei J Abstract Pelvic endometriosis is a complex syndrome characterized by an estrogen-dependent chronic inflammatory process that affects primarily pelvic tissues, including the ovaries. It is caused when shed endometrial tissue travels retrograde into the lower abdominal cavity. Endometriosis is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain in women and is associated with infertility. The underlying pathologic mechanisms in the intracavitary endometrium and extra-uterine endometriotic tissue involve defectively progr...

Semin Reprod Med 2018; 36: 340-350 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1678752 Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection in the United States. Within the U.S. military, the age- and race-adjusted chlamydia infection rates among female service members are consistently higher than civilian rates, with a 20% annual acquisition rate among young active-duty women. The sequelae of chlamydia disproportionately impact women in terms of severity and cost. Untreated chlamydia progresses to pelvic inflammatory disease in 40% of cases, and is a leading cause of fallopian tube damage and pelvic adhesive disea...

In this study, a link between mitochondrial changes and infant temperament has also been suggested. Maternal psychosocial stress and lifetime trauma have been associated with decreased mitochondrial DNA copy number in the placenta (115, 116).IndividualityChronic stress links changes in the epigenetic landscape with health conditions (117). Different cell types are characterized by distinct patterns of gene expression due to developmental, environmental, physiological, and pathological reasons (117). Epigenetic mechanisms affect gene function in a dynamic way as a result of different environmental exposures during fetal dev...

Authors: Cho CL, Esteves SC, Agarwal A Abstract Varicoceles exert deleterious effect on testicular function. The condition has been associated with male infertility, testicular hypotrophy and pain. These comprises the common indications for varicocele repair currently. Significant improvement in semen parameters and pregnancy outcomes had been suggested by reports decades ago. However, selection of the best candidates remains an issue since not all patients respond positively to treatment. Consensus has been reached in recent decade after the publication of a series of meta-analyses. Significant improvement in preg...

This study will be a pilot, randomized, double-blind, two-arm, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter clinical trial. Women aged 19 –59 years who present with CHHF will be recruited from five university hospitals. A total of 60 subjects will be randomly assigned to a treatment group (SDT) or a placebo group at a 1:1 ratio. The subjects will receive 3 g of either SDT or placebo three times daily for 8 weeks. The primary o utcome measures will be the Visual Analogue Scale scores of CHHF. The secondary outcome measures will be changes in body temperature in both the hands and the feet as me...

In this study we aimed to evaluate the efficacy of extensive hysteroscopic cesarean scar niche excision in symptomatic patients.DesignA retrospective cohort study.PatientsSymptomatic patients treated with hysteroscopic CSD excision who were considered eligible for the procedure when myometrial thickness of 2 mm or more was observed on sonohysterography.SettingTertiary referral center.InterventionsExtensive CSD excision was performed using a cutting loop and pure cutting current. The proximal and distal edges of the defect were resected. This was followed by resection of tissue at the base of the niche, until underling musc...

ConclusionsWe have identified menstrual cycle- and endometriosis-associated protein changes linked to various cellular processes that are potential biomarkers and that provide insight into the biology of endometriosis. Our data indicate that the markers tested, whilst not useful alone, have improved diagnostic accuracy when used in combination and demonstrate menstrual cycle specificity. Tissue heterogeneity and blood contamination is likely to have hindered biomarker discovery, whilst a small sample size precludes accurate determination of performance by cycle phase. Independent validation of these biomarker panels in a l...

When you are having difficulty becoming or staying pregnant, it often seems as if everyone around you –– friends, family, colleagues –– is pregnant. How can you navigate your world and maintain your relationships while coping with the pain and isolation infertility so often brings? Support for navigating other people’s pregnancies In my experience, solid relationships survive infertility. It can be excruciatingly painful when you learn that a friend is pregnant. But if your relationship is based on mutual respect and caring, you will get through it. Trust this, while considering the suggestion...

Conclusions and Relevance Cystectomy of ovarian endometriomas has been the first-line treatment for management for many years because it provides improved pain relief, reduces recurrence rates, and was thought to be favorable in in vitro fertilization. However, a growing body of evidence is demonstrating benefit, or at least no harm, in expectant management for asymptomatic patients with small, stable endometriomas. Medical management is often very effective and appropriate first line. When surgical intervention is appropriate, careful ovarian cyst excision with goal of ovarian tissue preservation and treatment of additi...

Abstract CASE PRESENTATION: A 32-year-old Nigerian woman, who became pregnant after undergoing in vitro fertilization, was admitted with nausea and abdominal pain. She had a history of two miscarriages and infertility because of tubal blockage treated by salpingectomy. One week prior, she presented to an outside hospital with premature rupture of membranes resulting in stillborn delivery of twins. Endometrial cultures from dilatation and curettage grew Escherichia coli, and she was started on a fluoroquinolone for chorioamnionitis. PMID: 30955580 [PubMed - in process]
