Application of a 'Baseball' Suture Technique in Uterine Myomectomy Following Laparoscopic Enucleation of Uterine Leiomyoma (Fibroid).

Application of a 'Baseball' Suture Technique in Uterine Myomectomy Following Laparoscopic Enucleation of Uterine Leiomyoma (Fibroid). Med Sci Monit. 2018 May 09;24:3042-3049 Authors: Xie L, Liu Y, Wang D, Liu C, Zhou H, Lin Z, Lu H Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a 'baseball' suture technique for uterine myomectomy incision closure in laparoscopic surgical enucleation of uterine leiomyoma (fibroid). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 20 patients who underwent laparoscopic myomectomy with a 'baseball' suture technique, compared with 20 patients who underwent laparoscopic myomectomy with a standard suture method. Clinical characteristics, perioperative and follow-up data were compared between the two groups. RESULTS For the study group, compared with the standard or control group, had a significantly reduced operation time (60.15±9.97 min vs. 71.85±9.74 min) and suturing time (18.05±4.71 min vs. 28.35±3.13 min) (both p

Abstract Ephrins are ligands of Eph receptors (Ephs); both of which are sorted into two classes, A and B. There are five types of ephrin-As (ephrin-A1-5) and three types of ephrin-Bs (ephrin-B1-3). Also, there are ten types of EphAs (EphA1-10) and six types of EphBs (EphB1-6). Binding of ephrins to the Eph receptors activates signaling cascades that regulate several biological processes such as cellular proliferation, differentiation, migration, angiogenesis and vascular remodeling. Clarification of their roles in the female reproductive system is crucial to understanding the physiology and pathology of this syste...

This article provides an updated review of novel findings regarding UAE. Recent findings Despite an abundance of observational studies and several small randomized controlled trials, large scale long-term comparative efficacy studies are lacking. Although short-term outcomes continue to be favorable, recent trials show reoperation rate of up to 35% in 10 years and may raise some concerns regarding ovarian reserve, fertility and pregnancy outcomes. Summary UAE remains a safe and effective alternative to surgery in the management of leiomyomas. A deeper investigation into understanding this treatment's optimal use in v...

Prolapsed submucosal myomas during pregnancy are uncommon, and few cases of patients undergoing vaginal myomectomy during pregnancy have been reported. In our center, a 13 weeks pregnant patient with prolapsed cervical myoma was diagnosed. Because of intermittent vaginal bleeding, surgery was scheduled at 13 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy. A vaginal myomectomy was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful.Cervical leiomyomas and prolapsed submucosal leiomyomas in pregnancy are rare clinical entities, and the literature is comprised of only case reports.

Uterine fibroids (UF; leiomyomas) are common, benign, gynecological smooth-muscle tumors occurring in up to 80 % of women by 50 years of age [1 –4]. Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB), anemia, moderate/severe pain, pressure, infertility, and pregnancy complications [3–5], which have a considerable effect on women’s quality of life (QoL), causing psychological distress and placing substantial financial burden on patients a nd healthcare systems [1,6–8].

AbstractIntroductionOvarian endometriosis is the most common type of endometriosis (EM), affecting more than 40% of women with EM. Currently, surgical intervention is still controversial in infertile patients with ovarian endometriosis, especially in those with stage  III–IV EM. Very few studies have been done to analyze long-term pregnancy results in patients with endometrioma more than 5 years after surgery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the pregnancy outcomes and the related factors in patients with endometrioma and stage III–IV endom etriosis during a long-term follow-up pos...

They are present in 5-70% of women (depending on different series), with at least one fibroid identified in 70% of women aged 40 to 60 years. Symptoms are present in 20-50% of women with uterine fibroids and include Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB), pelvic pain, Bulk-pressure symptoms and fertility problems depending on the size and ...

AbstractDue to the growing use of cross-sectional imaging in emergency departments, acute gynaecologic disorders are increasingly diagnosed on urgent multidetector computed tomography (CT) studies, often requested under alternative presumptive diagnoses in reproductive-age women. If clinical conditions and state-of-the-art scanner availability permit, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is superior to CT due to its more in-depth characterisationof abnormal or inconclusive gynaecological findings, owing to excellent soft-tissue contrast, intrinsic multiplanar capabilities and lack of ionising radiation.This pictorial review ai...
