Comparison of uterine scarring between robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy and conventional laparoscopic myomectomy.
This study compared uterine wound healing after robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy (RM) and laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). Ultrasound was used to evaluate the scar repair of uterine wounds at 1, 3, and 6 months postoperatively. Ninety-three RM and 110 LM patients were enrolled. More myomas excised using RM were type 1∼type 3(51.1%) and more myomas excised using LM were type 4∼type 6(54.2%), p
ConclusionCurettage for miscarriage or undesired pregnancy is not exempt from complications, such as hemorrhage, simple perforation, and infection. Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae and necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
With the widespread use of ultrasound during pregnancy, 1-3% of fetuses are diagnosed with hydronephrosis1. Commonly congenital obstructing lesions are located at the proximal and distal ends, and congenital mid ureteral strictures are relatively rare, reported as 4-5% of cases of urologic obstruction2. The treatment for an obstructing segment of the ureter is removal and anastomosis of the ureter3. Historically these were performed open, and then laparoscopically, but with the widespread use of robotic assistance for laparoscopic surgery, many pediatric urologists perform pyeloplasties using robotic assistance.
Authors: Fan JY, Xie JY, Lu YL, Yang Y, Chen YQ, Han YB Abstract OBJECTIVE: To explore the efficacy of laparoscopic surgery without auxiliary treatment for type II cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP-II). STUDY DESIGN: This was a case series of 7 patients with CSP-II who underwent laparoscopic surgery without auxiliary treatment between April 2014 and April 2015. All cases were diagnosed by ultrasound, confirmed by laparoscopy, and managed by laparoscopic resection of scar and gestational tissue and wound repair. RESULTS: All 7 patients had successful surgeries without complication. Uterine scar and gestational ti...
Conclusion: We recommend that patients with severe uterine dehiscence undergo transvaginal or laparoscopic repair before attempting another pregnancy. However, if they become pregnant without repair of the dehiscence, they can be managed conservatively with routine surveillance and intermittent monitoring by ultrasound to term unless there is an emergency.

ConclusionCurettage for miscarriage or undesired pregnancy is not exempt from complications (as hemorrhage, simple perforation, or infection) Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae, necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk for ectopic pregnancy.
ConclusionLaparoscopic approach with excision and repair of the uterine wall represents a safe and efficient therapeutic option for the treatment of the cesarean scar ectopic pregnancy.
Conclusion Surgical management of caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy with total dehiscence of hysterotomy can be performed safely and efficiently under laparoscopy.
ConclusionsThe HerniaSurge Group has developed these extensive and inclusive guidelines for the management of adult groin hernia patients. It is hoped that they will lead to better outcomes for groin hernia patients wherever they live. More knowledge, better training, national audit and specialization in groin hernia management will standardize care for these patients, lead to more effective and efficient healthcare and provide direction for future research.
