The incidence of unexpected gynaecological malignancies in hysterectomies carried out for benign indications. J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 Jan 15;:1-7 Authors: Yildiz G, Mat E, Yildiz P, Gundogdu EC, Basol G, Kurt D, Kale A Abstract The aim of the present study was to determine the incidence of unexpected gynaecological malignancies in patients undergoing hysterectomy for benign indications and to evaluate their clinical characteristics. Data from 6448 cases who had undergone hysterectomy for benign indications between the dates of 01.01.2008-01.01.2018 were recorded retrospectively from the database of the institution. The mean age of the cases with malignancy was 59.2 ± 9.66 (45-80) and 76,31% were (29/38) postmenopausal. The mean gravidity was 3.94 ± 1.73 and parity was 3.31 ± 1.45. Their mean BMI was 29.6 ± 4.26 kg/m2 (22.4-41.9 kg/m2 range). These patients were followed for a mean duration of 60.68 ± 37.66 months and during this period death associated with malignancy occurred in 4/38 (%10.52) cases, all of whom had leiomyosarcoma. The benign indications of procedure were as follows: myoma uteri (2675, 41.48%), abnormal uterine bleeding (1508, 23.38%), uterine prolapsus (793, 12.29%), ovarian cyst (619, 9.59%), endometriosis (303, 4.69%), endometrial polyp (264, 4.09%), pelvic pain (238, 3.69%) and other benign causes (48, 0.74%). ...

I'm an M2 and I've heard from some anesthesia pain mgmt friends that they do micro discectomies and some other simple spine procedures like spinal cord stimulators. Are these the same type of procedures that neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons perform?

This study reports the clinicopathologic features of 31 cases with a TP53 mutation involving nuclear localization, the largest study to date, emphasizing practical strategies for recognizing this uncommon variant and distinguishing it from the p53 wild-type pattern. The study also evaluates the prognostic significance of TP53 mutation involving nuclear localization in the ovarian high-grade serous carcinoma (HGSC) cohort of The Cancer Genome Atlas database. Most of the 31 tumors were advanced stage pelvic or endometrial HGSC. All TP53 mutations were predicted to result in loss of function. The p53 overexpression pattern wa...

Ovarian clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) and ovarian endometrioid carcinoma (OEC) are both associated with endometriosis but differ in histologic phenotype, biomarker profile, and survival. Our objectives were to refine immunohistochemical (IHC) panels that help distinguish the histotypes and reassess the prevalence of mismatch repair deficiency (MMRd) in immunohistochemically confirmed OCCC. We selected 8 candidate IHC markers to develop first-line and second-line panels in a training set of 344 OCCC/OEC cases. Interobserver reproducibility of histotype diagnosis was assessed in an independent testing cohort of 100 OCC/OEC ini...

Extraneural metastases of glioblastoma (GBM), although rare, are becoming an increasingly recognized occurrence. Currently, the biological mechanism underlying this rare occurrence is not understood. To explore the potential genomic drivers of extraneural metastasis in GBM, we present the molecular features of 4 extraneural metastatic GBMs, along with a comprehensive review and analysis of previously reported cases that had available molecular characterization. In addition to our 4 cases, 42 patients from 35 publications are reviewed. To compare the molecular profiles between GBM cases with extraneural metastasis and the g...

High-grade prostatic adenocarcinoma involving duct/acinar structures is labeled intraductal carcinoma of the prostate (IDCP). As numerous studies have shown that IDCP is associated with high stage disease with a significant negative impact on cancer-specific survival, accurate diagnosis is crucial to ensure appropriate patient management. The definition of IDCP recommended by 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) classification suggests that cases of IDCP with micropapillary or loose cribriform architecture without comedonecrosis should have cells with ≥6× nuclear enlargement. It is unclear how this size criterion ...

We report a novel NIPBL-NACC1 gene fusion in a rare primary hepatic neoplasm previously described as the “cholangioblastic variant of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.” The 2 index cases were identified within our consultation files as morphologically distinctive primary hepatic neoplasms in a 24-year-old female and a 54-year-old male. The neoplasms each demonstrated varied architecture, including trabecular, organoid, microcystic/follicular, and infiltrative glandular patterns, and biphasic cytology with large, polygonal eosinophilic cells and smaller basophilic cells. The neoplasms had a distinctive immunoprof...

Abstract: I.V. catheter placement is one of the most common causes of procedural pain in children. Interventions to address this pain are readily available but inconsistently used in practice. The focus of this article is to identify and encourage best practice for pain mitigation in peripheral I.V. catheter placement in children.

Discussion Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder with an intense fear of being overweight (i.e. distorted body image), and self-starvation and excessive weight loss. It is more common in women (1.2%) than men (0.2%) but can be seen in both genders. Risk factors include high-intelligence, perfectionism/inflexibility, anxiety, activities where thinner body types are expected (e.g. dancer, diver, gymnast, long-distance runner, volleyball player, etc.) Other eating disorders include bulimia nervosa (i.e. cycles of binge eating and then purging), binge eating disorder (i.e. purging), orthorexia (i.e. obsessions with healthful ...
