Cowden syndrome (CS) is a multiple hamartoma syndrome associated with the development of various tumors, including endometrial cancer. However, the histology of CS-associated endometrial cancer remains to be fully described. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with CS having endometrial endometrioid carcinoma with ovarian metastasis demonstrating morula-like features. A 31-yr-old, nulliparous, Japanese woman presented with abnormal genital bleeding. Endometrial biopsy revealed endometrioid carcinoma with an extensive morular formation, partially resembling atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM). Moreover, ...

We report a case of a primary cervical angiosarcoma in a 43-yr-old woman who presented with heavy vaginal bleeding. Cervical biopsy and subsequent radical hysterectomy showed a malignant vascular tumor which was composed of spindled and epithelioid cells and formed abortive vascular channels. Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were diffusely positive for CD31, CD34, ERG, and cyclin D1 and focally positive for D2-40. A reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test for YWHAE-NUTM2 genetic fusion was negative excluding a YWHAE-translocated high-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma. The tumor formed a 5 cm mass ...

CONCLUSION: Ectopic catheter replacement can improve the primary patency rate and auxiliary primary patency rate of catheters. Ectopic catheter replacement may require sufficient surgical skills with digital subtraction angiography, resulting in a better prognosis. PMID: 31820667 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we examined the safety of WATCHMAN implantation followed by 6 months of anti-thrombotic therapy in patients with a history of ICH.MethodsThis is a retrospective analysis of 63 patients with a history of ICH prior to WATCHMAN implantation (Group I) and 95 patients without a history of ICH who underwent WATCHMAN placement (Group II). The primary outcome was death, stroke, or major bleeding within 6  months of WATCHMAN placement.ResultsThe average CHA2DS2-VASc of Group I was 4.9  ± 1.7 vs 4.7 ± 1.4 for Group II (p = 0.34). The most common type of...

Wenyi Kang Schefflera heptaphylla (L.) Frodin, are commonly used in anti-inflammatory, analgesic, traumatic bleeding and hemostasisas. In this paper, the coagulation effect of the ethanol extract (Set), ethyl acetate phase (Sea) and n-butanol phase (Sbu) was evaluated by prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), thrombin time (TT) and fibrinogen content (FIB) assays in vitro. Then, Three main lupanine triterpenes (compounds A–C) were isolated and identified from Sea and Sbu by a bioassay-guided method and their structure were identified as 3α-Hydroxy-lup-20(29)-ene-23, ...
