Concurrent Bilateral Salpingectomy for Sterilization at the Time of Bariatric Surgery

Background: Women of child-bearing potential generally experience an increase in fertility following bariatric surgery. However, the most commonly performed bariatric operations, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), may impair absorption of oral contraceptives, potentially rendering them ineffective. Moreover, women desiring to lose weight should avoid contraceptive medications known to cause weight gain. As an alternative, bilateral salpingectomy provides highly reliable contraception and has even been proposed as a strategy to reduce the risk of ovarian, tubal, and peritoneal cancers.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

Dr. Matija Snuderl, neuropathologist and molecular pathologist at  New York University Langone Health, was featured ina recent article appearing inNature (March 26, 2020, Vol 579, p S14-S16). The article, which addresses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in cancer diagnostics, opens with Dr. Snuderl experiencing a moment that many of us neuropathologists have had wherein we hesitate before signing out a case because of a feeling that something might be just a bit different about a particular specimen. That feeling prompts us to do something else (run more ancillary testing, get a consult, sleep on it and ta...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...
