653: Maternal uterine leiomyoma and long-term pediatric morbidity in the offspring

Short term perinatal implications in pregnancies with uterine leiomyoma include lower ongoing pregnancy rates, higher rates of fetal malpresentation and preterm delivery. The potential long-term impact on offspring however, has not been investigated. The present study aimed to investigate the long-term morbidity in offspring of mothers with uterine leiomyomas.

ConclusionsThe etiological diagnosis of acute intestinal obstruction during pregnancy is not easy, especially in the context of a low-income country where the means of biological and radiological diagnosis are lacking. A laparotomy is required before diagnosis of acute surgical abdomen and its management will depend on the intraoperative findings and the condition of the patient.

(Abstracted from Hum Reprod 2017;32(10):2036–2041) Uterine tumors are a public health issue because of their prevalence in women and their connection to menstrual disorders, anemia, pelvis pain, pregnancy loss, and infertility. Treatment of symptomatic fibroids includes open myomectomy or hysterectomy, which have higher morbidity rates, longer hospital stays, and more disruption of daily life.

AbstractRationale:PNETs (primitive neuroectodermal tumors) are a family of highly malignant neoplasms characterized by small round cells of neuroepithelial origin. They usually involve bone and soft tissues, and have a higher incidence in childhood.Patient concerns:In this case report, we describe the obstetric and oncological outcome of a huge mass diagnosed as a leiomyoma in a 39-year-old pregnant woman who complained of low back pain, dysuria, and urinary frequency at 22 weeks of gestation.Diagnoses:During the 25th week of pregnancy, the patient was referred to our hospital at night with severe anemia and suspected hemo...

AbstractBACKGROUNDUterine leiomyoma (also known as fibroid or myoma) is the most common benign tumor of the uterus found in women of reproductive age. It is not usually fatal but can produce serious clinical symptoms, including excessive uterine bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure, infertility and pregnancy complications. Due to lack of effective medical treatments surgery has been a definitive choice for the management of this tumor.OBJECTIVE AND RATIONALEExtracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation and remodeling are thought to be crucial for fibrotic diseases such as uterine leiomyoma. Indeed, ECM plays important role in formi...

The objective of this video presentation is to describe the surgical technique of hysteroscopic myomectomy of a large leiomyoma that was found embedded at the base of a complete uterine septum during hysteroscopic division of the septum. This video focuses on one case of a patient that was undergoing infertility workup due to recurrent pregnancy loss secondary to advanced maternal age and diminished ovarian reserve. Patient underwent operative hysteroscopy for septoplasty, and was found to have a complete uterine septum and during hysteroscopic division was found to have a large fibroids embedded in the septum.

Study Objective: Myomectomy is a procedure often reserved for the treatment of symptomatic leiomyomas in women who desire fertility preservation.This surgery often leads to significant blood loss and produces a scar in the uterine body, so it is important to know what possible effects may have on the fertility of these patients.The purpose of our study is to assess the rates of postoperative fertility and pregnancy outcomes after laparoscopic myomectomy with a single surgeon.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare risk of reintervention, long-term clinical outcomes, and health care utilization among women who have bulk symptoms from leiomyoma and who underwent the following procedures: hysterectomy, myomectomy, uterine artery embolization, and magnetic resonance-guided, focused ultrasound surgery. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of administrative claims from a large U.S. commercial insurance database. Women aged 18-54 years undergoing any of the previously mentioned leiomyoma procedures between 2000 and 2013 were included. We assessed the following outcome measures: risk of rei...
