Role of Interventional Procedures in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Radiological guided intervention techniques are discussed in obstetric and gynecologic patients. Fallopian tube recanalization, postpartum hemorrhage control, techniques of treating uterine leiomyomas, pelvic congestion treatment, and the use of percutaneous and transvaginal ultrasonography-guided aspirations and biopsy are covered. These techniques use basic radiological interventional skills and show how they are adapted for use in the female pelvis.

AbstractLeiomyomatosis is a uterine condition that can rarely present with extrauterine involvement. Intravenous and intracardiac extensions are extremely rare presentations and, in these cases, the intra ‐cardiac mass may be confused with a cardiac myxoma and can be associated with pulmonary embolism. Here we report two cases of successful surgically removed intracardiac leiomyomas under cardiopulmonary bypass.

We present the case of a 40-year-old woman with a primary intraventricular leiomyoma. She consulted us for headache, dizziness, and black spots in her vision. Magnetic resonance images (MRI) disclosed a mass rooted in the posterior septum pellucidum. The tumor was totally excised by the senior author with no residual seen on intraoperative MRI. Pathological examination showed it to be a benign spindle-cell neoplasm. On the 6th month control MRI, there was no recurrence. We also reviewed articles relevant to primary intracranial leiomyomas.

Single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) is an exciting new modality in the field of minimal access surgery that provides the advantage of further reducing the number of scars of standard laparoscopy. While there are case reports of single incision laparoscopic surgery for adnexal pathology in this population, there are none in regards to treatment of uterine pathology such as leiomyoma. This case illustrates the feasibility of single incision laparoscopic surgery for uterine pathology in the pediatric and adolescent population.

Diffuse leiomyomatous disease is a rare manifestation of Alport Syndrome. When identified, it has been associated with symptoms of reflux and dysphagia secondary to esophageal disease. There is scant published literature on genitourinary complaints in female patients with Alport Syndrome found to have leiomyomata in the genital tract outside of the uterine cavity.

AbstractIntroductionOvarian endometriosis is the most common type of endometriosis (EM), affecting more than 40% of women with EM. Currently, surgical intervention is still controversial in infertile patients with ovarian endometriosis, especially in those with stage  III–IV EM. Very few studies have been done to analyze long-term pregnancy results in patients with endometrioma more than 5 years after surgery. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the pregnancy outcomes and the related factors in patients with endometrioma and stage III–IV endom etriosis during a long-term follow-up pos...
