Considerations for performing microwave endometrial ablation (MEA) - Three cases with abnormal test results of endometrial tissue discovered by chance when performing MEA.

Conclusion: When performing MEA, it is important to perform detailed examinations and careful monitoring of post-operative progress bearing in mind potential malignant uterine diseases. PMID: 32619375 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Jang JH, Arora N, Kwon JS, Hanley GE Abstract OBJECTIVE: Premature surgical menopause (PSM) without subsequent hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can lead to morbidity and mortality. Our objective was to describe the use of HRT following PSM and identify variables associated with HRT use based on prescription records from a population-based cohort. METHODS: A population-based retrospective cohort of women in British Columbia, Canada who underwent PSM between the ages of 19 and 49 years. Women were identified using surgical data from the Discharge Abstract Database and linked to HRT prescription historie...

Purpose of review To review current topical hemostatic agent use and how it pertains to gynecologic surgery. Recent findings Recent literature suggests some benefit of topical hemostatic agents (THA). THAs confer reduced bleeding and shorter operating room time in women undergoing hysterectomy for cancer and in abdominal myomectomy. THA use in women undergoing ovarian cystectomy is associated with a decreased reduction in ovarian reserve. Potential complications of THA use include abscess formation, small bowel obstruction, inflammation, allergic reaction, and transmission of blood-borne pathogens. Evidence for use of...

Rationale: Ovarian small cell carcinoma of hypercalcemic type (OSCCHT) is a relatively rare and highly fatal gynecological malignancy of unknown histogenesis, affecting mainly girls and young women. OSCCHT occurring during pregnancy is an uncommon event, and preoperative diagnosis of this malignancy is much more difficult in pregnant than non-pregnant women. The aim of this study was to describe a rare case of primary OSCCHT in a pregnant woman and to review the current literature. Patient concerns: Here we present a case of OSCCHT in a 21-year-old patient in the 32nd week of gestation, who had abdominal pain and irre...

Uterine fibroids are one of the most common neoplasms found among women globally with a prevalence of approximately 11 million women in the United States alone. The morbidity of this common disease is significant as it is the leading cause of hysterectomy and causes significant functional impairment for women of reproductive age. Factors, including age, body mass index (BMI), race, ethnicity, menstrual blood loss (MBL), fibroid location, and uterine and fibroid volume, influence the incidence of fibroids and severity of symptoms.

CONCLUSIONS: Although UAE is a safe and effective way to manage PPH, a long-term follow-up is needed to determine the complications of UAE. When uterine necrosis is suspected, prompt and adequate treatment should be performed due to the effects of necrosis on menstrual cycles, fertility, and subsequent pregnancies.

A 46-year-old female patient presented to her gynecologist who complained of one-month history of irregular vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain two months ago. She first visited the local hospital, abdominal B-mode ultrasound showed multiple myomas of the uterus. The patient had severe vaginal bleeding symptoms and no fertility requirements, so laparoscopic hysterectomy was a suitable treatment option. It was found that the lower segment ureter and the uterine tumor were obviously adhered during the operation.

Small cell tumors arise from the neuroendocrine cell system and they are most frequently found in the lung (SCLC). Small cell tumor could occasionally arise in other body sites, such as the cervix, prostate, gastrointestinal tract, and very rarely from other sites. Metastatic SCLC patients present with metastatic disease in 80% of cases, and the metastases typically are reported in brain, liver, lung, and bone; they rarely could be found in the ovary. Differently, primitive small cell carcinoma of the ovary of pulmonary type is a rare and highly aggressive tumor arising from the ovarian cells; no suitable treatment strateg...

Fibroids are generally benign (not cancerous) tumors that form within the tissues of the uterus. They are very common in reproductive-age women: studies report that up to 70% of white women and 80% of Black women may develop fibroids by age 50. And research suggests Black women are more likely to experience severe or very severe symptoms related to fibroids, such as heavy and sometimes prolonged monthly periods. In some cases, women seek medical care due to menstrual bleeding so heavy that they develop anemia and require iron supplements or, much more rarely, blood transfusions. The FDA recently approved new medicine, take...
