Evaluation of pelvic floor muscle by transperineal elastography in patients with deep infiltrating endometriosis: preliminary observation

ConclusionThe elasticity of the PFM in DIE patients could be qualitatively evaluated by transperineal elastography. The coordination of the PFM was injured and decreased elasticity appeared in DIE patients.

A 44-year-old woman presented to the colorectal surgeons with a six month history of tenesmus and change in bowel habit. Initial investigations suggested a malignant colorectal tumour but biopsies showed squamous metaplasia and no colonic tissue. After further investigation and discussion at multiple multidisciplinary meetings, surgical resection of a large pelvic mass including sigmoid colon, uterus and ovary was performed. Histological examination of this mass showed intra-colonic polypoid endometriosis with fistulation through into an adjacent large cystic space, which was found to be a mature cystic teratoma.

The objective of this video is to depict a robotic assisted laparoscopic resection of a retroperitoneal mass, showing a unique case where compression on the pelvic splanchnic nerves produced severe urinary symptoms in a patient which resolved immediately after the procedure. It also shows a rare case of extraogonadal retroperitoneal mature teratoma.

Ovarian masses are one of the most frequently identified entities in gynecological practice. Early differential diagnosis is a key factor in the medical management of each patient. Transvaginal ultrasound along with additional preoperative testing, such as serum cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) levels and the Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA) score, usually provide sufficient information for a presumptive diagnosis. Minimally invasive surgery as a therapeutic approach is the standard procedure for uncomplicated and benign adnexal masses. Histopathological examination alone, or in conjunction with immunohistochemical t...

AbstractThe pathogenesis of benign-looking cartilaginous tissue within the peritoneum is unknown. Chondroid metaplasia of subcoelomic mesenchyme has been suggested, as has been the case for other gynecological diseases such as endometriosis, peritoneal leiomyomatosis, or gliomatosis peritonei, but has never been proven. Chondroid nodules in the peritoneum may represent either teratomatous tissue, fetal rests from a conception product, or metaplasia of pluripotent mesenchymal cells. Herein, the unique genetic characteristics of ovarian teratomas (homozygous at many polymorphic microsatellite loci) versus normal tissues (het...

Ovarian epithelial inclusions lined by mucinous epithelium are rare and of uncertain origin. Ovaries containing such inclusions were studied in 42 women. The inclusions were divided into 3 groups: serous epithelial lined with typical ciliated morphology but with distinct basophilic cytoplasmic mucin in some or all of the lining cells, those lined by typical mucinous epithelium, and those lined by a combination of typical mucinous epithelium and serous epithelium. The mean patient age was 61.5 years. Pure mucinous inclusions were found in 27 patients, serous-type inclusions with cytoplasmic mucin in 20, and mixed type in 10...

In this study, there were included 71 patients who underwent a laparoscopic intervention for adnexal tumors. The average age was 33 years old (range 18 and 60 years old). The ultrasound findings were ovarian endometriosis in 23.9% of cases, left ovarian cysts (22.5%) and right ovarian tumors (18.3%), and the lowest percentage was of left ovarian tumors (8.5%). Regarding the histopathological examination, we found the following results: ovarian endometriosis (32.4%), ovarian functional cysts (15.5%), serous ovarian cysts (15.5%), salpingitis (12.7%), ovarian myoma (7%), papillary serous ovarian cysts (4.2%), ovarian teratom...

CONCLUSIONS: There is a low pregnancy rate after laparoscopic cystectomy of benign OT. Moreover, pregnancy rate after cystectomy of endometrioma is significantly lower and the percentage of reccurence of endometrioma is significantly higher. That is why, the decision about surgical treatment among childbearing women must be well-considered because of the risk of subsequent surgery in the future.

This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that surgery increases the risk of endometriosis. We recruited 208 patients with ovarian endometrioma and 212 age-matched patients with ovarian teratoma and retrieved information on the history of any surgical procedures after menarche, grouped by laparotomy, laparoscopy, gynecologically related procedures, cesarean section, and surgeries performed on torso and extremities was recorded. We then evaluated the association, if any, between endometriosis and history of surgical procedures. Cases and controls were comparable with respect to age, marital status, education level, a...
