The world’s first baby born by a uterus transplant from a deceased donor is healthy and nearing her first birthday, according to a new case study published Tuesday in the Lancet. Uterus transplants have become more common in recent years, resulting in 11 live births around the world. But all of the other successful deliveries so far have been made possible by living donors — often women who opt to donate their uterus to a close friend or family member without one. The birth resulting from the case detailed in the Lancet, which took place at Brazil’s Hospital das Clínicas last December, is both the first...

Conclusions Except for the risk of premature ovarian failure, a rare adverse effect of combined treatments, both single-agent and multiagent chemotherapy can be safely administered to patients with a desire for childbearing. High-risk patients have worse reproductive outcomes because they undergo hysterectomy more frequently than low-risk patients.

(Abstracted from Hum Reprod 2017;32(10):2036–2041) Uterine tumors are a public health issue because of their prevalence in women and their connection to menstrual disorders, anemia, pelvis pain, pregnancy loss, and infertility. Treatment of symptomatic fibroids includes open myomectomy or hysterectomy, which have higher morbidity rates, longer hospital stays, and more disruption of daily life.

There seems to be a new IVF clinic starting in practically every nook and corner in every town in India. Why this sudden spurt of IVF clinics coming up all over the place? Is it that the number of infertile couples has increased so dramatically that the requirement for IVF has gone up so sharply?The reason is actually far more crass and commercial. Senior obstetricians and gynecologists who are tired of delivering babies and hysterectomies want to do something new and different and cutting-edge. Many think IVF is a very lucrative field, and rather than referring their patients to an IVF specialist and losing all that ...

The objective of our study was to review available conservative surgeries for the treatment of adenomyosis, their complications, and the rates of success and recurrence. In this systematic review, we evaluated 27 studies; 10 prospective and 17 retrospective studies including a total of 1398 patients. The results showed that excision of adenomyosis is effective for symptom-control such as menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea, and most probably for adenomyosis-related infertility. For preserving fertility and relieving symptoms, medical treatment is usually the first choice; whereas excisional surgery could be performed for refracto...

The post What a pain! – Lisa’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I knew I had endometriosis as it had a laparoscopy that identified this in my mid thirties as part of infertility investigations. I tried ICSI once after that and paid privately but we were unsuccessful in having a baby. We carried on ‘leaving it up to nature’ for many years after that but nothing happened. At the age of forty three we decided that we wouldn’t actively pursue my getting pregnant any more and put the idea to bed – my husband has a 17 yr old daughter from a previous marriage and she lives...

The objective of this study was to inspect the expression of OTR in isthmic and mid-fundal parts of the uterine junctional zone at different stages of the follicular cycle in patients with and without endometriosis.

The OTR expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: In the control uterus, OTR expression in the isthmic region was significantly higher than in the fundal region in the proliferative phase (p

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIt is well established that in carefully selected patients with early cervical cancer, fertility-sparing procedures are equally safe in terms of recurrence and mortality to the standard treatment with radical hysterectomy. This review highlights the evolution in fertility-sparing management options, with long-term evidence on oncologic and obstetrical outcomes presented.Recent FindingsThe long-term safety of radical vaginal and abdominal trachelectomy is well established. Recently published series also suggest that when patient selection is limited to tumors
