Use of a Fibrin Sealant Patch at Cesarean for Conservative Management of Morbidly Adherent Placenta

Conclusion Postpartum hemorrhage is an ongoing leading source of maternal morbidity and mortality. A case is presented in which a fibrin sealant patch provided control of focal placental bed bleeding, allowing removal of a focal morbidly adherent placenta and avoidance of hysterectomy.

In this study, we present a noninvasive procedure of bilateral cervix apex clamping (BCAC) procedure to control refractory postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) in vaginal delivery as a new second line therapy for refractory PPH. The procedure clamps the anterior and posterior walls of the cervical apex using toothless ovum forceps to arrest bleedingafter the failure of the first line therapy for PPH.. 44 women were performed BCAC to control persistent bleeding in 13359 vaginal deliveries from 1 January 2016 to 31 May 2018. In all of the BCAC, it can reduce bleeding significantly. The bleeding speed after BCAC was far less than that...

ConclusionSCEM followed by SC appears to be an effective treatment option for CSP. The method seems to be safe in short-term follow-up. However, complications were observed in long-term follow-up. Therefore, patients should be informed about the risk of complications interfering with future fertility, such as intrauterine adhesions and/or amenorrhea.

This report supports emerging evidence that ESS with ZC3H7B-BCOR gene fusion may have an aggressive clinical course in spite of its low-grade histology. This report further expands the morphologic spectrum of ZC3H7B-BCOR fusion ESS to include nonmyxoid histology. Finally, this report underlines the value of molecular analysis in the proper classification of this aggressive tumor with deceptive low-grade histology.

ConclusionMultiple clinical features are associated with the presence of a uterine sarcoma, but when incorporated into a prediction model, they fail to provide significantly more information about women who may have an unrecognized sarcoma and only marginally improve the certainty about women who are not likely to have sarcoma.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the risk factors for massive bleeding based on angiographic findings in patients with placenta previa and accreta who underwent balloon occlusion of the internal iliac artery (BOIA) during cesarean section. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis using the clinical records of 42 patients with placenta previa and accreta who underwent BOIA during cesarean section between 2006 and 2017 in our institution. We reviewed incidence of collateral arteries to the uterus on the initial aortography. We evaluated the visualization of the ovarian artery arising directly from the ab...

Purpose of review Bleeding at the time of benign gynecologic surgery, as well as from benign gynecologic conditions, is a major source of morbidity for many women. Few nonhormonal medical options exist for the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding, and to reduce surgical bleeding during major gynecologic surgery. Interest in Tranexamic acid (TXA) as a means to reduce surgical blood loss has been growing across many surgical specialties. This review focuses on applications for TXA as a means to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) as well as to reduce surgical bleeding during benign gynecologic surgery. Recent findings ...

Conclusions In this study, prophylactic uterine artery catheterization with temporary occlusion of blood flow proved to be a safe technique with low fetal mortality, no maternal mortality, and a low rate of blood transfusion and can be considered an important and effective therapeutic strategy for reduction of maternal morbi dity and mortality, especially in pregnant women with anomalous placental attachment. Furthermore, the possibility of uterine preservation with the use of this method is an excellent contribution to therapeutic management of this group of patients. However, randomized clinical trials are needed to e va...

Rationale: Endometrial neuroendocrine carcinoma is a rare histological subtype of endometrial cancer, divided into low-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma (carcinoid) and high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma (small cell and large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma). It is characterized by high invasiveness and poor prognosis. L/SCNEC is an extremely rare pathological type of endometrial carcinoma, and the number of reports on this condition is few globally. Patient concerns: A 54-year-old Chinese female presented with vaginal bleeding. Diagnoses: Outpatient hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy were performed, and the pathologi...

The World Health Organization (WHO) further defines PEComa as “a mesenchymal tumor composed of histologically and immunohistochemically distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells”. Gynecologic PEComas account for approximately ¼ of the PEComa cases reported in the literature and are h...
