This article provides an overview of the latest techniques and devices used for uterine-sparing surgical treatment of fibroids. While laparoscopic myomectomy is still the gold standard, novel laparoscopic and transcervical radiofrequency ablation techniques use low-voltage and alternating current to induce heat in the uterine tissue, which triggers necrosis in fibroids. This enables the removal of multiple fibroids without the need for large incisions in the uterine wall. In addition, we address the benefits and potential risks, as well as the impact on fertility and pregnancy, of the different surgical approaches used for...

ConclusionsAdhesive small bowel disease (ASBD) and small bowel obstruction are a major cause of patient distress and financial and clinical practice burden. It is usually a diagnosis of exclusion and leads to delayed treatment and morbidity. Many preventive techniques and materials are being tested to prevent adhesion formation. A lot more needs to be done to prevent, in the first place, the formation of adhesions or treat this condition to reduce such morbid outcomes as strangulation or transection of gut.

An appropriate diagnostic evaluation is essential for the most appropriate treatment to be performed. Currently, macroprolactinemia is the third most frequent cause of non-physiological hyperprolactinemia after drugs and prolactinomas. Up to 40% of macroprolactinemic patients may present with hypogonadism symptoms, infertility and/or galactorrhea. Thus, the screening for macroprolactin is indicated not only for asymptomatic subjects but also for those without an obvious cause for their prolactin (PRL) elevation. Before submitting patients to macroprolactin screening and pituitary magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), one shoul...
