Role of Laparoscopy in the Diagnosis of Genital TB in Infertile Females in the Era of Molecular Tests
ConclusionPCR as a stand-alone diagnostic test for endometrial TB is not justified to confirm diagnosis and initiate ATT. The addition of laparohysteroscopy improves diagnostic yield for genital TB. Referring patients with a suspicion of female genital TB to tertiary care for 1-time laparoscopy is better than initiating ATT solely on the basis of PCR results.

Critically High Carboxyhemoglobin Level following Extensive Hysteroscopic Myomectomy
We present a case of a 36-year-old woman (Gravida 0, Para 0) with abnormal uterine bleeding-leiomyoma and resultant anemia, undergoing hysteroscopic resection of a large submucous myoma. During surgery, the patient was found to have a critically elevated level of carboxyhemoglobin and accompanying electrocardiogram derangements. She was managed with prolonged intubation, 100% O2, and trending of her carboxyhemoglobin levels before extubation. This demonstrates the importance of being cognizant of the potentially toxic gaseous byproducts of bipolar resection and of including intravasation of these byproducts in one's consid...

A Practical Guide to the Clinical Evaluation of Endometriosis-Associated Pelvic Pain
This article provides a comprehensive and practical approach to the clinical diagnosis of EAP, which can subsequently facilitate prompt and directed treatment. The key components of the history, physical examination, and high-quality imaging to evaluate suspected EAP and related pain conditions are presented. Currently, biomarkers have limited utility in the diagnosis of endometriosis, but research in this area continues; development of a reliable noninvasive test for endometriosis may further improve early identification of this condition.

Is High-intensity Focused Ultrasound Effective for the Treatment of Adenomyosis? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
ConclusionThis review suggests a potential benefit for HIFU in the treatment of adenomyosis-related symptoms; however, findings of the meta-analysis were based on fewer, nonuniform studies, which did not equally account for each specific symptom/parameter across the board. Results showed there appears to be a potential of HIFU in the treatment of adenomyosis-related symptoms. To date, there are no comparative and randomized clinical trials comparing the HIFU technique with other conservative treatment options. As yet, there are insufficient data regarding fertility and pregnancy outcomes. (Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

A Simple Technique for the Placement of Seprafilm, a Sodium Hyaluronate or Carboxymethylcellulose Absorbable Barrier, during Laparoscopic Myomectomy
This report describes a simple technique using conventional instrumentation for the placement of Seprafilm, a sodium hyaluronate or carboxymethylcellulose absorbable barrier for adhesion prevention. A total of 378 women with uterine myomas undergoing laparoscopic myomectomies had 737 Seprafilm pieces placed. Seprafilm sheet was softened through exposure to room air for 5 minutes, cut into 4 pieces (length, 5−10 mm), rolled up alongside a plastic sheet cut from a camera drape cover, and gently placed at the right paracolic gutter.

ConclusionThis video demonstrated that LESS-RH with vaginal closure and without manipulator was feasible and safe. Suspension skills played a significant role in the LESS-RH. Besides, this surgery procedure also involved 4 specific techniques to prevent tumor spillage, including creation of a vaginal cuff, avoidance of interoperate uterine manipulator, standard extent and bagging of the specimen. These adaptations were meant to minimize tumor manipulation and disruption, for reducing the increased risk of recurrence. However, further verifications were still required.
