Authors: Bennett A, Lepage C, Thavorn K, Fergusson D, Murnaghan O, Coyle D, Singh SS Abstract Traditionally, hysteroscopy has been performed in the main operating room with the patient under general anaesthesia. Hysteroscopy performed in an office setting avoids the risks of general anaesthesia. The aim of this review was to evaluate the effectiveness of outpatient hysteroscopy compared with hysteroscopy performed in the operating room to diagnose and/or treat intrauterine pathology. Relevant electronic databases were searched, including Medline, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library. RCTs and nonrandomized studies that...

CONCLUSION: Observational studies suggest some degree of association between serum hormones measured in pregnancy and a woman's future risk of breast and ovarian cancer. More data are needed to determine sufficiently whether certain blood hormone levels measured in pregnancy are predictive of future cancer risk. PMID: 30528445 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Yimer H, Woldie H Abstract The number of CS procedures has increased dramatically both in developed and developing countries in recent decades. CS has been associated with chronic pain. A vicious impediment on quality of life may occur among women who experience chronic post-CS pain (CPCSP). Therefore, this systematic review aimed to synthesize the available evidence on the incidence of chronic pain after Caesarean delivery and the possible risk factors for the development of chronic pain. The PubMed, Embase, and Google Scholar databases were searched for articles published in English between 2004 and Janu...

Influence of Βeta-Cryptoxanthin Supplementation on Ovarian Reserve and Fertility Status in Aged Wistar Rats. J Diet Suppl. 2018 Dec 08;:1-13 Authors: Pearce K, Tremellen K Abstract Previous observational studies have suggested that β-cryptoxanthin, a micronutrient present in yellow and orange fruit and vegetables, may help delay the onset of menopause. Given the widespread social trend of delaying pregnancy, the possibility that β-cryptoxanthin supplementation may delay age-related loss of fertility and onset of menopause is of significant interest. In a parallel study, either saline or ...

Authors: Barbanti P, Grazzi L, Egeo G Abstract INTRODUCTION: Migraine is increasingly recognized as an extremely burdensome and disabling disorder in both children and adolescents. A proper treatment plan is needed to improve the quality of life of both children and families as well as to minimize the risk of disease progression. Areas covered: This review focuses on the current pharmacotherapy for acute migraine in pediatric populations, taking into account specific considerations for those drugs tested in randomized, placebo-controlled trials (RCTs). Expert opinion: A large number of RCTs have documented the effi...

We present a case of 75-year-old male diagnosed in 2008 with a tumor located in the right naso-orbital region. The patient underwent surgical treatment, the histopathology being consistent with BCC. He presented recurrences of the tumor in 2009 and 2010 that were excised at approximately 9 and 16 months, respectively, from the first intervention. In 2010, the surgical procedure was radical, with removal of the tumor and the entire right superior eyelid. This approach proved to have negative side effects over the right eye in time. Therefore, after two months, a complete exenteration of the right orbit was necessary. The tu...

Authors: Costan VV, Tamaş C, Dobrin N, Costache DA, Ciocoiu M Abstract Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of cancer located in the periocular area. We will present the clinical case of a 63-year-old male patient who was admitted to the 2nd Clinic of Neurosurgery, "Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu" Emergency Clinical Hospital, Iaşi, Romania, for an ulcerated tumor of about 0.8×0.7 cm in diameter with rolled edges and central necrosis in the upper eyelid with orbital invasion. According to the patient's personal history, he also underwent Cortisone treatment for dermatomyositis. The magnetic r...

In conclusion, establishing a preoperative diagnosis is difficult if not impossible. One of the causes of acute surgical abdomen may be BMPM. The malignant transformation of this disease is rare, but the disease recurrence rate is over 50%, and it is often recommended to be monitored through abdominal computed tomography.

Authors: Marinescu I, Vasiliu O, Vasile D Abstract An intensively researched and yet poorly understood phenomenon, both at clinical and neurobiological level, is the determinism of treatment-resistant depression. Even more controversial are the stages of approaching therapeutically this pathology because there are no evidence-based recommendations stating that a pharmacological agent is superior to another, on medium and long-term. Due to the lack of "golden standard" approaches, physician's experience, therapeutic alliance and a close monitoring stand as the most useful good practices in the treatment of...

We report a case of well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma developing on the lower lip of a 59-year-old woman who had previously undergone local radiotherapy for a hemangioma, in which the use of non-invasive imaging techniques such as in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and dermoscopy allowed an early diagnosis and a prompt, effective treatment. Owing to its capability of assessing microscopic features of dysplasia and neoplastic changes, RCM in combination with dermoscopy may provide an invaluable tool for early detection of malignant changes in previously irradiated cutaneous and mucosal areas.
