Persistence of Symptoms After Total vs Supracervical Hysterectomy in Women with Histopathological Diagnosis of Adenomyosis
ConclusionCompared with women without adenomyosis, those with histopathologically proven adenomyosis were less likely to report persistent pain following hysterectomy.

Factors predicting persistent ectopic pregnancy after laparoscopic salpingostomy or salpingotomy for tubal pregnancy: a retrospective cohort study
Conclusions: ChCGD5-10 was a predictor for PEP, suggesting that it might be more clinically useful for the follow-up of PEP. When considering perioperative variables only, body mass index was a predictor for PEP. In addition, there was no significant difference in clinical outcomes between the salpingostomy and salpingotomy groups. (Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

ConclusionHysteroscopic surgery using cold graspers combined with electric loop by the HEOS is feasible and effective for treatment of DUL as it preserves the uterus and yields favorable reproductive outcomes. The cold surgery and fenestration method minimize electrical and thermal damage to the endometrium surrounding the myoma, consequently reducing surgical risks.

Laparoscopic oophorectomy to treat pelvic pain following ovary-sparing hysterectomy: factors associated with surgical complications and pain persistence
ConclusionsLaparoscopic oophorectomy to treat pelvic pain following ovary-sparing hysterectomy is a feasible yet challenging procedure. Despite a significant rate of complications and a small proportion of patients reporting persistent symptoms, most have symptom resolution or improvement after such surgery. Further studies are required to assess long term outcomes. Careful patient selection and counseling prior to this procedure is critical. (Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Laparoscopic diagnosis and treatment of obturator nerve entrapment due to a deep infiltrating endometriotic nodule: a case report
We report a rare case of deep infiltrating endometriotic nodule entrapping the right obturator nerve.

We successfully diagnosed the case and treated by laparoscopic surgery. The video demonstrating the surgery is also included. The recent follow-up in July 2018 (18 months after the operation performed in January 2017) showed no signs or symptoms of recurrence or any other new complaints. 18 months duration of follow-up for this case is the longest follow-up da...

A Case of Cardiac Arrhythmia from Absorption of Normal Saline During Hysteroscopic Myomectomy.
We present a case of severe hypokalemia, metabolic acidosis, and arrhythmia following absorption of 2500 mls of normal saline during a hysteroscopic myomectomy. The patient was a 36-year-old woman with abnormal uterine bleeding due to a submucosal leiomyoma. She received a total of 3500 mls of normal saline (2500 mls was absorbed via the uterus and 1000 mls given intravenously) during hysteroscopy. This resulted in hemodilution, electrolyte disturbances, and arrhythmia. She was treated with electrolyte replacement and closely monitored.
