The polycystic ovary syndrome: a position statement from the Polish Society of Endocrinology, the Polish Society of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians, and the Polish Society of Gynaecological Endocrinology. Endokrynol Pol. 2018;69(4): Authors: Milewicz A, Kudła M, Spaczyński RZ, Dębski R, Męczekalski B, Wielgoś M, Ruchała M, Małecka-Tendera E, Kos-Kudła B, Jędrzejuk D, Zachurzok A Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis and therapy still arouse a lot of controversy. Each year brings new information, so, having collected the experience of three scientific societies, we present contemporary recommendations concerning PCOS diagnostics and treat-ment. In adult female diagnosis, we still use the Rotterdam criteria, which is two out of three of the follwing characteristics: a) ovulation abnormality, b) clinical or biochemical hyperandrogenism, and c) polycystic ovaries. In the case of teenagers, diagnostic criteria are as follows: menstruation disturbances two years after menarche and clinical or biochemical hyperandrogenism. The presence of polycysti-cally abnormal ovaries is not necessary. The consensus paper presents the threats resulting from imperfect diagnostic methods applied in PCOS (hyperandrogenism diagnostics, ultrasound examination of ovaries). Suggested therapy includes personalised schemes according to the dominant PCOS phenotype, i.e. metabolic, hyperandrogenic, or reproductive ones. PMID: 30209800 [PubMed - in process]

Introduction: The rate of pregnancy of unknown location (PUL) across early pregnancy units (EPUs) is variable, 8 –31%. An acceptable PUL standard of less than 15% of all pregnancy outcomes within EPUs using transvaginal ultrasound was recommended by an expert panel in 2006.

Authors: Sipahi M, Tokgöz VY, Keskin Ö, Atasever M, Menteşe A, Demir S Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the findings of ultrasound that could predict the metabolic syndrome (MetS) which may develop in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients. A total of 96 consecutive PCOS patients, who were scheduled for any gynaecologic examination from January 2015 to January 2016 and who were eligible for the study, were prospectively enrolled in it. About 15.6% of PCOS patients were diagnosed with MetS. The mean age of the MetS patients and the non-MetS patients were 25.8 and 23.3, respectively (p&...

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is challenging to diagnose during adolescence. Diagnostic criteria for adults are difficult to apply to adolescents in part because ultrasound criteria are based on adult data. This retrospective study aimed to assess and compare clinical, metabolic, and hormonal characteristics of adolescents diagnosed with PCOS who required ultrasound for diagnosis according to Rotterdam criteria to those of adolescents who did not.

Authors: Lee HJ, Bahr JM, Bitterman P, Basu S, Sharma S, Abramowicz JS, Barua A Abstract Chronic inflammation and long-standing oxidative stress are potential predisposing factors for developing malignancies, including ovarian cancer (OVCA). Information on the association of ovarian chronic abnormal conditions, including polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), with the development of OVCA is unknown. The goal of this study was to examine if polycystic ovarian conditions are associated with OVCA development. In the exploratory study, 3-4-year-old laying hens were randomly selected and examined for the presence of polycy...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine condition that represents a lifelong health concern for 1 in 10 women worldwide.1 PCOS is commonly diagnosed by the presence of ovulatory dysfunction, androgen excess, and/or ovaries with polycystic morphology on ultrasound examination.2 Half of patients experience overweight or obesity.3 Most are at increased risk for serious comorbidities, including infertility, pregnancy complications (eg, gestational diabetes mellitus), impaired glucose tolerance, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, gynecological cancers, anxiety, depression, eati...
