ConclusionsThese results highlight the differences between conventional and histopathologically atypical ULs and indicate that some UL subtype tumors may harbor long ‐term malignant potential.

The objective of this study is to investigate the five-year reintervention rate of uterine artery embolization (UAE) for symptomatic leiomyomas and to identify potential predictive factors of reintervention.MethodsFrom March 2011 to February 2012, 92 consecutive women (mean age 41.9 years, range 28–55 years) underwent bilateral UAE. Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed at three-month follow-up. After annual follow-up, a survey on clinical outcome and reintervention incidences was performed at five-year follow-up. Potential predictive factors of reintervention were evaluated.ResultsOf the 6...

ConclusionsThis is the first measure of rs4247357 in a Caribbean population and coincides with a recent study in African- American women where no association was also found.
The next in our " Best of the Month " series comes from October 9, 2018:Melanoma markers were negative. Smooth muscle markers were positive. This case was determined to be an epithelioid leiomyoma. I didn't do electron microscopy to look for mitochondia, but it may well be what Ursula Schlotzer-Schredhardt et al. have called a mitochondria-rich epithelioid leiomyoma (Arch Ophthalmol, Vol 120, January 2002).
ConclusionEven when careful in-bag tissue extraction of myomas was performed in laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy, dispersion of leiomyoma cell was identified in most cases. Further study is needed to show that the feasibility of rigorous washing to reduce the potential risk of leiomyoma cell dissemination.

We aimed to identify predictors for NovaSure endometrial ablation failure. This will contribute to a more effective and individualized preoperative counseling.DesignA retrospective multi...
