Abstract Endometrial polyps have a reported prevalence from 7.8% up to 30% and are one of the most cost-consuming gynecological conditions for our specialty. There are strong practitioner beliefs that surgical removal of endometrial polyps is highly beneficial, particularly for those with abnormal uterine bleeding and infertility. Additionally, polypectomy is indicated to reduce the risk of malignancy. Transvaginal ultrasound is the first-line diagnostic option for detection of endometrial polyps, while sonohysterography has similar accuracy as hysteroscopy in the diagnostic confirmation. Blind dilatation and cure...

ConclusionsAs ovarian edema is a rare entity, due to lack of clinical suspicion it is often overdiagnosed as a malignant tumor leading to radical surgery with subsequent loss of hormonal function and early infertility. A high degree of clinical suspicion during the intraoperative period is helpful for diagnosis to avoid unnecessary oophorectomy and infertility.

Cervical remodeling is an important aspect of birth timing. Before cervical ripening, the collagen fibers are arranged in a closely interweaved network, but during ripening, the fibers become disorganized, and the cervix becomes more hydrated. To quantitatively measure cervical remodeling, we need a non-invasive method to monitor changes in cervical collagen fiber organization and hydration in vivo.

About 7796 references were screened for inclusion, and 52 references from 1908 to 2017 were included. One hundred seven cases of acute pyelonephritis in pregnant women were reviewed. Gestational age at diagnosis was reported as 2 (2%), 43 (40%), and 51 (52%) during the first, second, and third trimesters, respectively.
