Authors: Kohsaka S, Katada J, Saito K, Terayama Y Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of bleeding events and stroke/systemic embolism (SE) among Japanese patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), focusing on the initial dosage of apixaban and patient age. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study used de-identified electronic health records-based claims data from 314 acute-care hospitals in Japan. NVAF patients newly initiated on warfarin or apixaban, with no prescription during the 180-day blanking period, were eligible. Patients were allocated to receive warfarin or 5 or 2.5 mg twice...

Authors: Jeon JH, Jeong K, Moon HS Abstract Thickened uterine endometrium with abnormal uterine bleeding highly suggests endometrial hyperplasia or endometrial carcinoma. A case of 35-year-old nulliparous woman came to our department with endometrial mass manifesting as endometrial cancer. Transrectal ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed an 8x6 cm multicystic, ill-defined mass compacted at the uterine endometrium, the anterior wall of the uterus, and 3x3 cm heterogenous mass at the left adnexa. The edometrial mass showed multiple septations with enhancement and low-signal intensity on T2-weig...

Authors: Jung Y, Ahn JH, Kim RY, Yoon JH, Lee SJ Abstract The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is commonly used to remove cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) because of its safety profile and likelihood of fewer complications. The authors report a rare case of massive retroperitoneal bleeding combined with hypovolemic shock after LEEP conization. Vessel injury was detected by angiographic computed tomography (CT) and embolization of the uterine artery was successfully performed to achieve hemostasis by an intervention radiologist. A pigtail catheter was subsequently inserted for the drainage of t...
