Complications of Laparoscopic and Transabdominal Cerclage in Patients with Cervical Insufficiency: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Cervical insufficiency (CI) is a defect of the cervix that leads to failure to preserve a full-term intrauterine pregnancy. Laparoscopic and open transabdominal cerclage (TAC) are effective ways to manage patients with CI. We performed this systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the complications of laparoscopic and open TAC in the management of CI. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

A fascial reinterpretation of the classical female pelvic surgical anatomy: seeing things from a different angle
The classical surgical anatomy of the female pelvis was born with radical hysterectomy [1] and focused on the pivotal role of the lateral parametrium, a conceptually complex structure, artifact of surgical anatomy [2], without which, the whole classical model would collapse. Here, using natural planes, we tried to simplify the puzze of virtual spaces surrounding this structure [3,4].With the aim of better conceptualizing the classical model of female pelvic surgical anatomy, we broadened its perspective, narrowed on the historical gynecological setting, by developing a comprehensive model of pelvic retroperitoneal compartm...

Uterine malakoplakia identified by diagnostic hysteroscopy
A 68-year-old G2P2 woman presented with postmenopausal bleeding for one month. One year before she had undergone living donor liver transplantation and was currently being treated with tacrolimus, lamivudine, everolimus, and prednisolone. Her gynecological history included a right ovarian cyst (4.70 cm) diagnosed before transplantation. While pelvic examination and Papanicolaou smear were within normal limits, ultrasound images revealed a significant endometrial thickening (3.23 cm) accompanied by fluid accumulation (Figure 1) and a right ovarian mass.

Ectopic Adrenal Cortex in the Adnexa
Ectopic adrenal cortex is a rare entity most commonly detected incidentally at the time of surgery [1]. It is typically identified near the kidney, but can be present anywhere along the genitourinary tract. This occurs due to deposition of adrenal tissue along the path from gonads to the adrenal glands during embryogenesis [2]. This ectopic tissue is found along the path of embryological migration in 50% of newborns and typically atrophies over the first few years of life. It is found in one percent of adults, most commonly men. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Incarcerated Ring Pessary Repair Under Local Anesthesia
Vaginal pessaries (VP) are mechanical devices used as a viable conservative treatment for pelvic organ prolapse in order to avoid or postpone surgery [1-3]. When inserted into the vagina they provide physical support to the vaginal wall, reducing the prolapse, and relieving the pressure on the bladder and bowel [3]. While VP remains in situ, continuous follow up is required to avoid complications. The device must be removed and a thorough vaginal examination is performed to ensure the integrity of vaginal tissue and correct VP position [4,5].

Initially, the area improved, but day 9 of TMP/SMX, she noticed expanding abdominal erythema and patches of erythema on left inguinal fold and right forearm. Over the next 24 hours, there was rapid expansion of abdominal redness and patchy areas of redness on left groin and right forearm. (Source: The Journal of Min...

After public outcry in response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, over 18 organizations signed a collective action statement against racism in the field of obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN). A portion of the statement acknowledged, “Many examples of foundational advances in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology are rooted in racism and oppression. For example, the mid-1800s surgical experimentation of James Marion Sims leading to successful treatment of vesicovaginal fistula was performed on enslaved Black women, includ ing three women, Betsey, Lucy, and Anarcha, who underwent r...

There are a number of factors that make the design of surgical trials diffiuclt, and many surgical questions cannot be answered with a clinical trial. Issues with standardization of the surgical procedure, variability of surgical skills, and changes in surgical expertise over time further complicate the design and implementation of surgical trials.

Regarding “Patient Discharge without an Order to Void in the Outpatient Gynecologic Surgery Setting”
The piece of Editorial on dismissing a trial of voiding prior to discharging patients undergoing same day surgery [1] was intriguing. Tracing back to its original research, Samimi et al [2] suggests that the rate of readmission due to post-discharge urinary retention is very low, and is similar between patients with or without an order to void. However, recounting a case of severe postoperative urinary retention (POUR), we believe otherwise and would like to share that particular experience with the readers.
