A comprehensive review of childbearing after cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy
ConclusionA successful pregnancy is feasible in selected patients, after CRS and HIPEC. Assisted reproduction techniques (IVF using frozen oocytes or frozen embryos, ovarian tissue cryopreservation, preoperative treatment with GnRH analogs) should be discussed pre-operatively with the patient, without, however, compromising overall survival or risking locoregional recurrence.

Surgery-related complications and long-term functional morbidity after segmental colo-rectal resection for deep infiltrating endometriosis (ENDO-RESECT morb)
ConclusionsSegmental resection, when indicated, offers a radical and feasible approach for bowel deep infiltrating endometriosis, resulting in an improved general quality of life. The bowel and bladder complications appear to be acceptable and often reversible. Postoperative sexual dysfunctions, such as anorgasmia and insufficient vaginal lubrication, appear to persist over time. Surgeons and women have to be aware of the incidence of this kind of complications. (Source: Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics)

The differential diagnostic value of serum HE4 in ovarian disease with elevated CA125; importance of diagnostic added value in clinical practice
AbstractFor clinical purposes, diagnostic added value of HE4 is important. Diagnostic knowledge is not provided by answering the question, “How accurate is this test?” (test accuracy research). Diagnostic knowledge is the information needed to answer the question, “What is the probability of the presence or absence of a specific disease given these test results?” (diagnostic accuracy research). Therefore, diagnostic added value of HE4 expression (differences of ROC curves for two diagnostic models with and without HE4) is important in clinical practice. Without assessing reliability, we cannot judge...
