Conclusion The laparoscopic management of abdominal pregnancy and hemoperitoneum resulting from rupture of the gestational chamber and abortion was optimal. With this minimally invasive technique, it was possible to drain the hemoperitoneum completely and then proceed to total removal of the gestational chamber and the fetus. Thanks to the magnification of the image by laparoscopy, it was also possible to completely remove the placenta and the cotyledons from the peritoneal surface, thereby avoiding possible postoperative bleeding, infection, and sepsis resulting from retention of incomplete removal of the placenta. On the...

The most common cancer of the reproductive organs in American women is endometrial cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that for the year 2017, around 61,380 new cases of cancer of the body of the uterus will be diagnosed and about 10,920 women will die from cancers of the uterine body. These figures include both endometrial cancers and uterine sarcomas. Since endometrial cancer is a fairly common cancer in women, the more women know the facts about this disease, the greater their chance of knowing what symptoms to be aware of in order to have it diagnosed as early as possible, improving the likelihood of surviva...

The aim of this study was to identify the mode of presentation and incidence of colorectal cancer in pregnancy (CRC-p), assess the outcomes of the mother and foetus according to gestational age, treatment delivered and cancer features and location. A systematic review of the literature was carried out to identify studies reporting on CRC-p and pooled analysis of the reported data. Seventy-nine papers reporting on 119 patients with unequivocal CRC-p were included. The calculated pooled risk is 0.002% and age at diagnosis has decreased over time. The median age at diagnosis was 32 (range, 17–46) years. Twelve per cent,...

Nursing is not the kind of profession one goes into seeking fame and prestige. Ask any of the nurses in your life, and they’ll all tell you the same story: It involves long hours and hard work, with little acknowledgement of the day-to-day sacrifices. And yet, according to a U.K. survey, nurses are among the world’s most satisfied professionals, along with teachers and engineers, of those who most enjoy their jobs. That’s because, despite the stress and burnout, there’s a shared sense of purpose among those who work in healthcare. In addition to the time and energy they sacrifice to care for their p...
