1885 Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy and Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy with Uterine Artery Ligation in a Case of Tubo-Ovarian Abscess with Severe Pelvic Adhesion

ConclusionTotal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy may be feasible in the treatment of tubo-ovarian abscess by using robotic-assisted instruments. Due to the greater precision, better visualization, and higher dexterity of robotic-assisted surgeries.

ConclusionsPreoperative examination of the perineum and imaging with accurate interpretation is crucial to identify subtle but important distinctions in diagnosis, which can result in markedly different interventions ranging from transperineal resection of a transverse vaginal septum, vaginal pull-through procedure, to hysterectomy. The location of the gynecologic outflow obstruction dictates the proper surgical treatment of these patients.

CONCLUSIONS: In 42 cases of angular pregnancy diagnosed by first-trimester ultrasound examination, outcomes were largely positive, with an 80% live-birth rate and a 20% early pregnancy loss rate. Early diagnosis of angular pregnancy using the described criteria may represent an entity that more closely resembles a normal, noneccentric intrauterine pregnancy rather than an ectopic pregnancy. Therefore, most cases can be closely observed and efforts made to expectantly manage pregnancies while awaiting viability. PMID: 31809430 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study is registered with the Netherlands Trial Registry, number NTR5263.FindingsWe screened patients for enrolment between Dec 3, 2015, and May 31, 2018. Patients completed baseline visits and started treatment between Dec 14, 2015, and July 2, 2018, and the last study visit of the last patient was Oct 4, 2018. Of 149 patients assessed for eligibility, 57 (38%) patients were excluded (predominantly because they did not meet one or several inclusion criteria, most often because of an absence of synovial inflammation or of flare-ups after NSAID washout) and 92 (62%) patients were eligible for inclusion. We randomly assi...

Conclusion Levonorgestrel intrauterine system and dienogest have significantly improved the control of bleeding and pelvic pain, respectively, in women with adenomyosis. However, there is insufficient data from the retrieved studies to endorse eachmedication for this disease. Further randomized control tests (RCTs) are needed to address pharmacological treatment of adenomyosis.Resumo Objetivo: Avaliar a efic ácia de tratamento não cirúrgico para adenomiose. Fontes de dados: Uma pesquisa foi realizada por dois autores nas bases de dados Pubmed, Scopus, Scielo e na literatura cinzenta desde o iníc...

ConclusionDue to the heterogeneity of the tissue sampling techniques, diverse patient populations, and significant conflicting recommendations, no conclusive recommendation on the optimal tissue sampling technique can be made. However, it is of the authors opinion that it would be reasonable to limit uterine tissue sampling for confirmatory diagnosis of adenomyosis in those patients with a suspicion of adenomyosis based on both symptom profile and pelvic ultrasound, where a planned diagnostic laparoscopy for either infertility or pelvic pain has already been contemplated and scheduled, and where the confirmatory results ma...

A 46-year-old black woman with a history of endometriosis presented with right-sided sciatica, right shoulder pain and persistent cough. She had a history of severe endometriosis and fibroids with previous laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy performed at an outside facility one year earlier. Three weeks prior to presentation, she had a spontaneous right pneumothorax which was managed with a tube thoracostomy. Transvaginal ultrasound demonstrated bilateral endometriomas and repeat computed tomography scan indicated a recurrent right apical pneumothorax.

CONCLUSION: Given the myometrial defects and placenta increta observed in a pregnancy after uterine artery embolization without documented fibroids or uterine surgery, consideration should be given to antenatal myometrial thickness surveillance. PMID: 31285167 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
