Laparoscopic Nerve-Sparing Radical Hysterectomy vs Laparoscopic Radical Hysterectomy in Cervical Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Clinical Efficacy and Bladder Dysfunction
Publication date: March–April 2019Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Jiayue Wu, Taiyang Ye, Jianwei Lv, Zhihong He, Jie ZhuABSTRACTIt is widely accepted that nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy is associated with less postoperative morbidity compared with radical hysterectomy, whereas clinical safety is similar in the 2 procedures. However, there is insufficient evidence to compare these procedures performed via a laparoscopic approach. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies to compare the clinical efficacy and the rate of bladder dysfunction, includin...

Non-malignant Sequelae after Unconfined Power Morcellation
ConclusionMorcellation of nonmalignant tissue is not without consequence. Pathology confirmed endometriosis was documented for the first time in 20.4% of patients who underwent a second surgery. This finding raises the suspicion that morcellation and dispersion of the uterine specimen may be associated in the development of endometriosis. (Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

ConclusionModerate-to-severe endometriosis was more common in women with East or South East Asian ethnicity in our tertiary referral center.  This could be explained by East/South East Asians with minimal to mild disease being less likely to seek care or genetic/environmental differences that increase the risk of more severe disease among East/South East Asians.
