Authors: Xiao J, Zhou J, Liang L, Liu F, Liang H, Xu C, Meng J Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the sensitivity of apoptosis-stimulating protein of p53 (ASPP) and P-glycoprotein (P-gp) to the recombinant human adenovirus-p53 (rAd-p53) combined with neoadjuvant chemotherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer and their predictive value for efficacy. METHODS: 80 patients with histopathologically diagnosed locally advanced cervical cancer (stage Ib2-IIa2) and operative treatment from February 2009 to June 2013 were enrolled and randomly divided into 3 groups: radical hysterectomy group (RH group, n=30), simple intra...

We report an unusual case of a leiomyosarcoma arising six months post myomectomy in a 16-year old female.Graphical abstractRadiographic images (A) starting with the CT of mass on day 0 followed by the CT abdomen/pelvis of second pelvic mass leiomyosarcoma on day 185, the MRI prior to staging surgery on day 317, and finishing up with the MRI of the recurrence of malignancy. Timeline of patient events (B). Our patient initially underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy with pelvic mass biopsies showing leiomyoma which was followed by an abdominal myomectomy. She re-presented to the hospital on Day 190 and urgently underwent an expl...

ConclusionLESS hysterectomy is a reliable and safe option in gynecologic surgery. Compared to conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy, LESS surgery demonstrated comparable surgical properties in regard to blood loss, duration of surgery, and intra-/postoperative complications. Notably, patients undergoing LESS hysterectomy experienced some less pain postoperatively.

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...

In conclusion, patients with HLRCC undergo surgery at young ages for highly symptomatic uterine leiomyomas. FH-d morphology is usually a diffuse and well developed finding across different leiomyomas but may be absent or focal and subtle. FH IHC can show variable results and presence of retained FH staining should not be used to exclude the possibility of HLRCC. Referral for genetic counselling and testing should be considered in a young patient with uterine leiomyomas showing FH-d morphology even if immunohistochemical staining for FH is retained.

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.
