AbstractTo assess the feasibility and the safety of the ultra-minimally invasive (U-MIS) approaches in gynecology, we compared our experience in percutaneous assisted hysterectomy (PSS-H) with a series of 3  mm mini-laparoscopy hysterectomy (m-LPS-H). 126 patients affected by benign and malignant gynecological conditions were considered eligible for minimally invasive hysterectomy: 80 patients received PSS approach and 46  m-LPS approach. For both groups, we evaluated intra and perioperative outcomes, post-operative pain and cosmetic outcomes. The baseline characteristics were comparable between the two study gro...

Lex McKee and I first met at various networking meetings taking place across Dorset back in early part of the 21st century and even though I dropped out of business networking for several years his posts on LinkedIn have always intrigued, fascinated and amused me, as he’s a very funny guy – as well as being thought-provoking and challenging. We explored the metaphor of farming as sowing the seeds of self-belief, confidence, knowledge and learning. And also the co-creation of communication through our uses of language and words frame our entire existence. Lex is many things, filmaker, broadcaster, podcaster, wri...

This study aimed to compare the treatment outcomes in carcinoma cervix before and after gynecologic oncology sub-specialization at a tertiary care hospital, in India. This was a retrospective cohort study comparing women with operable cervical cancer who underwent radical hysterectomy before and after gynecologic oncology sub-specialization. Electronic medical records of women operated for early carcinoma cervix between 2001 and 2010 and 2011 –2015 were reviewed and compared for treatment and oncological outcomes. Seventy-four patients were operated over 5 years after sub-specialization as against 59 over 10&nbs...

Conclusions Midwestern obstetrician-gynecologists' adherence to the guidelines for cervical cancer screening and management of abnormal results is suboptimal. Although co-testing for women aged 30–65 years has been broadly adopted, primary HPV testing has not. Physicians overscreen, overtreat low-grade lesions, and undertreat high-grade lesions in young women.

Conclusions The surgical treatment of HG-VaIN should be tailored according to the clinical characteristics of each woman and each lesion. However, in potentially high-risk cases (VaIN 3, previous hysterectomy for human papillomavirus–related disease, and menopausal women) or in those cases in which an occult invasive disease cannot be ruled out, an excisional approach should be preferred. In any case, long-term follow-up is advisable in women treated for HG-VaIN.

Objective: To evaluate the success rate of pessary fitting and continuation rate for symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse (POP) patients with a hysterectomy and to explore potential predictors. Methods: In this prospective observational study, 119 symptomatic POP patients with a prior hysterectomy received pessary treatment between April 2015 and February 2019. A successful pessary fitting was defined as a patient who was fitted with a pessary and continued to use it 2 weeks later. Patients with successful pessary fitting were followed until February 2020. Data analysis was performed with t tests, nonparametric tests, ch...
