ConclusionThere is inconsistency in histopathologic definitions, and there is no uniformly accepted or validated system of image-based reporting or classification that can inform clinical decision making.

A simple technique for placement of Seprafilm® − a sodium hyaluronate/carboxymethylcellulose absorbable barrier − during laparoscopic myomectomy
This reports describes a simple technique, using conventional instrumentation, for placement of Seprafilm® − a sodium hyaluronate/carboxymethylcellulose absorbable barrier in adhesion prevention. Three hundred seventy-eight women with uterine fibroids undergoing laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) had 737 Seprafilm® pieces placed. The Seprafilm® sheet was softened through exposure to room air for 5 min, cut into four 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. The Seprafilm® pieces unfolded semi-automa...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Intraoperative Tools for Detecting Endometriosis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
ConclusionStudies report that enhanced imaging allows for the detection of additional endometriotic lesions missed by conventional white-light laparoscopy. The benefits of finding these additional lesions using enhanced imaging compared with white-light inspection alone on long-term postoperative outcomes have not been determined, and these tools should be considered only in a research context at this time.

Robotic colostomy take-down in a patient with extensive ventral hernias and adhesive disease
ConclusionRobotic-assisted colostomy take-down and anastomosis of descending colon to rectum were successfully performed. While there is a paucity of literature examining this technique within gynecologic surgery, general surgery literature has supported laparoscopic Hartmann's reversal and have demonstrated improved rates of postoperative complications and incisional hernia, while lowering the length of hospitalization (1). Minimally invasive technique is a feasible alternative to laparotomy for gynecologic oncology patients with colostomy, as long as they are recurrence-free.

Is endometriosis more common and more severe than it was 30 years ago?
ConclusionAs with all human studies, population sampling and study design matter. Heterogeneity of inclusion and diagnostic criteria and selection bias overwhelmingly account for variability in endometriosis prevalence estimated across the literature. Thus, it is difficult to conclude if the lack of observed change in frequency and distributions of endometriosis over the past 30 years is valid. (Source: Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)
