We report a case of a pyomyoma in which in-bag morcellation allowed for a total laparoscopic hysterectomy instead of laparotomy, which has been recognized as the standard of care to avoid the spread of infection from morcellation. A 45-year-old multiparous woman presented with sepsis, pelvic pain, and leukocytosis at 1 month after undergoing uterine artery embolization for symptomatic uterine leiomyoma. Pelvic computed tomography scan revealed a 9-cm suspected pyomyoma. A total hysterectomy was performed using a laparoscopic approach with in-bag morcellation. The intervention was successful, and the postoperative course wa...

This article describes the experience of a large multisite organization that implemented a machine-based scalp cooling program. METHODS: Nursing staff led an interprofessional team that addressed components of the program. As a result, eight sites within the authors' organization simultaneously began offering scalp cooling via machine using a single unified process. This approach was then successfully replicated one year later to prepare six additional sites to launch scalp cooling for other solid tumor types beyond breast cancer. FINDINGS: Using a structured, collaborative, and interprofessional approach to the ...
