Intraoperative assessment (IA) of uteri is often used to help determine whether to perform lymphadenectomy in patients with endometrial carcinoma. We sought to perform a quality assurance review of the practice of IA at our institution. In a 1-yr period, 107 hysterectomies had an IA performed. Grade of neoplasm in preoperative endometrial biopsy, neoplasm size, depth of myometrial invasion at IA, operative management, and final histologic features were recorded. Operative reports were reviewed to assess the surgeon’s interpretation of the IA and the effect on surgical management. The sensitivity and specificity for I...

We report the case of a 43-yr-old woman who presented with abnormal uterine bleeding. Clinical diagnosis of a malignant cervical lesion followed an excision, histopathologically evaluated as PEComa. The hysterectomy specimen confirmed the diagnosis by strong HMB-45 positivity, weak S100 positivity, and focal, moderate cytoplasmic TTF-1 positivity, and negative melan A, SMA, desmin, vimentin, cytokeratins, CD1a and other markers. The patient was negative for tuberous sclerosis complex, did not receive additional therapy, and 3 yr later is disease free. Cervical PEComas are very rare tumors but have to be considered in the d...

ConclusionThis case presents the rare occurrence of a complete hydatidiform mole causing hyperthyroidism and an associated finding of a mature cystic teratoma. It also highlights the importance of monitoring b-hCG levels following a complete molar pregnancy due to an increased risk of choriocarcinoma.

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