Acute Pelvic pain in women-gynecological causes.

CONCLUSION: Diagnostic imaging is pivotal to differentiate potentially life- and fertility-threatening conditions from those that can be treated conservatively. Profound knowledge of the most common gynecological pathologies allows prompt and correct radiological diagnosis and assists in proper treatment planning.

ConclusionAortic dissection in pregnancy is relatively rare, but physicians should be on high alert for the condition when a pregnant woman has chest pain. Early diagnosis and adequate treatment in addition to regular multidisciplinary care are crucial to achieve favourable results.

CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity and specificity of CT for diagnosing appendicitis in adults are high. Unenhanced standard-dose CT appears to have lower sensitivity than standard-dose CT with intravenous, rectal, or oral and intravenous contrast enhancement. Use of different types of contrast enhancement or no enhancement does not appear to affect specificity. Differences in sensitivity and specificity between low-dose and standard-dose CT appear to be negligible. The results of this review should be interpreted with caution for two reasons. First, these results are based on studies of low methodological quality. Second, the c...

Abstract A 27-year-old woman with sudden back pain was transported to our hospital. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed pregnancy of 28 weeks ’ gestation. Computed tomography demonstrated a type A aortic dissection. Because of progressive fetal deterioration, an emergency cesarean section was forced to perform. The next day, simple hysterectomy followed by an aortic procedure was completed. Valve-sparing aortic replacement and total arch replacement were employed as central operations. The mother and baby are well 9 months postoperatively. Although the strategy for acute type A aortic dissection during pregnancy is co...

Rationale: Coronary angiography (CAG) findings of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in pregnant women are characterized by a high incidence of normal coronary arteries. This is the first report of AMI with normal coronary arteries during pregnancy, showing coronary spasm and pregnancy-related acquired protein S (PS) deficiency. Patient concerns: A 30-year-old Japanese woman was admitted to an emergency department. One hour before admission, she developed sudden onset of precordial discomfort, back pain, and dyspnea. She was a primigravida at 39 weeks’ gestation and had no abnormality in the pregnancy thus far. S...

Rationale: Rupture of an unscarred uterus after in vitro fertilization–embryo transfer (IVF-ET) in a primiparous woman is rare. Assisted reproductive technology (ART)-induced rupture of an unscarred uterus is usually attributable to increased dizygotic twinning rates. Salpingectomy can result in cornual scarring and increase the risk of uterine rupture as well as the mortality rate in a subsequent ectopic pregnancy. Here, we present the first reported case of a spontaneous, third-trimester, uterine rupture in a primiparous woman after IVF-ET due to a history of bilateral salpingectomy because of bilateral oviduct a...

We present the case of unilateral nonhemorrhagic adrenal infarct in a 29-week pregnant 21-year-old woman. The patient presented with right upper quadrant pain, nausea, and vomiting. Ultrasonography of the right upper quadrant and appendix was negative for pathology. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen demonstrated a right nonhemorrhagic adrenal infarct, subsequently confirmed with limited computed tomography of the upper abdomen. This case discusses the clinical presentation and pertinent imaging findings of adrenal infarction in pregnancy.

This spring, 31-year-old Heather Bankos donated her uterus through a research program at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, becoming about the 70th woman to do so worldwide. Bankos does not know the identity of her recipient, but most women in Baylor’s program have Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome, a congenital condition that occurs in females, leading to an underdeveloped or absent uterus. Bankos, who lives in Pennsylvania and has three kids of her own (ages 8, 6 and 3), explains why she wanted to donate her uterus, and what she hopes it brings to its recipient. —Jamie Ducharme, TIME staff...

Conclusions: Pre-injury psychiatric and pre-injury headache/migraine symptoms are risk factors for worse functional and post-concussive outcomes at 3- and 6-months post-mTBI. mTBI patients presenting to acute care should be evaluated for psychiatric and headache/migraine history, with lower thresholds for providing TBI education/resources, surveillance, and follow-up/referrals. Clinical Trial Registration:, identifier NCT01565551. Introduction Traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In 2013 ~2.8 million TBI cases were recorded annually i...

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2019Source: The American Journal of SurgeryAuthor(s): Timothy Bax, Matthew Macha, John MayberryAbstractAbdCT for the evaluation of AAP in the ED in the US may be excessive and is potentially (although rarely) misleading and harmful. A selective policy of ‘AbdUS first’ combined with an observation unit and/or surgeon evaluation prior to AbdCT is preferred to a ‘routine AbdCT’ policy. Repeated AbdCTs for abdominal pain are not recommended because of cumulative radiation exposure. Standardized and complete history and physical examination, such as that ori...
