Ovarian torsion of large adnexal mass in pregnancy: minimally invasive approach
A 26-year-old at 15 weeks gestational age presented with abdominal pain. Ultrasound showed a 17  × 13 × 22cm clear cyst of uncertain origin that crossed the midline. Pelvic MRI showed ovarian parenchyma compressed at the periphery with an edematous right adnexal vascular pedicle twisted along its axis (Figure 1A, 1B). A CA-125 was not obtained preoperatively due to concern for acute torsion and patient's gravid status. The patient was counseled and proceeded with ovarian detorsion and cystectomy.

Regarding “Perioperative Outcomes of Total Vaginal Hysterectomy in Women with Prior Cesarean Delivery”
We read with great interest the article by Delara et al evaluating the safety of Total Vaginal Hysterectomy (TVH) for patients with prior Cesarean Section (CS)1. History of prior CS is a commonly encountered risk factor in women considering hysterectomy. When interpreting the authors ’ conclusions, context is important. The operating surgeons are all fellowship trained gynecologic subspecialists with surgical volumes likely to exceed those of specialist Ob/Gyns. Studies have consistently shown that high volume surgeons have better complication rates than low volume surgeons2. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Hysteroscopic management of an oblique vaginal septum with diverticulum in Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome
A 13-year-old virgin girl had aggressive cyclic dysmenorrhea for 4 months. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a diagnosis of Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome (HWWS): uterus didelphys, double cervix, obstructed right hemivagina with anterior vaginal wall cyst, and unilateral renal agenesis. (Fig. 1). Diagnostic hysteroscopy indicated a flat hemivaginal septum, left cervix, and uterine cavity, but no right cervix or other associated channel. Hysteroscopic incision of the bulging oblique vaginal septum was performed and revealed two small openings in right vaginal wall, final diagnosis of vaginal diverticulum was made (...

An Unusual Finding of Two Cesarean Scar Defects in a Patient with History of Multiple Cesarean Sections
A healthy27-year-old female with a history of four previous cesarean sections (CS) was referred for evaluation of pelvic pain accompanied by intermenstrual and post-coital bleeding. Initial transvaginal ultrasound suggested presence of a uterine polyp. This was further investigated by saline-infused sonogram, which demonstrated a retroflexed uterus and two discrete fluid-filled cesarean scar defects (CSDs) (Figure 1). The first CSD was noted in the lower uterine segment measuring 8mm in length and 6mm in height, with an overlying myometrial thickness of 4mm. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Asherman Syndrome after Uterine Artery Embolization: A Case of Embolic Spheres Displacement inside the Uterine Cavity
Uterine myomas represent the most common uterine neoplasm, and they occur in approximately 70% of the women of reproductive age [1]. Although uterine artery embolization (UAE) has been demonstrated to be a safe and effective treatment for women who wish to preserve the uterus [2], growing evidence shows that it has a worse outcome than myomectomy on fertility [3,4]. Among the possible adverse effects of UAE on fertility, intrauterine adhesions formation has been reported [5]. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Endometriotic Lesions On Uterine Scar
A 40-year-old pregnant woman was admitted to the hospital with menostaxis after cesarean section for eight months. She had experience of 4 pregnancies, two of which resulted in cesarean section at full term and two of which were electively terminated. She had previously been in good health. Ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance imaging revealed two adjacent solid lesions approximately 3 cm and 5 cm in diameter (Figure 1) respectively, at subserous uterine isthmus, with a negative blood beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin value.

Author's Reply
Thank you for your response to our publication and thoughts. We have reviewed our statistical analysis and affirm that our biostatistics are accurate. As noted, there was a large discrepancy between the study groups. We accounted for this discrepancy by completing an age-sex match. We agree that for all approaches to hysterectomy, patient characteristics, surgical indication, and surgeon experience are factors to consider, particularly for vaginal surgery.

Symptomatic and asymptomatic isthmocele: impact on reproductive outcomes
The presence of a cesarean section scar defect, or isthmocele, is defined as the presence of a niche, or a diverticulum, communicating with the endometrial cavity, within the inner contour of the anterior myometrial wall, at the level of a previous cesarean section scar [1]. Its diagnosis is typically underestimated, unless symptoms are present. The most common symptom is post-menstrual spotting (typically dark, odorous discharge after normal menses) caused by difficult outflow [2]. When present, it can cause adverse effects on fertility and pregnancy. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)

Laparoscopic Repair of the Bladder: A Case of Intrauterine Device Migration to the Urinary Bladder
A 51-year-old woman presented to the urology outpatient department at a regional hospital with a 6-month history of intermittent pink urine. A cystoscopy showed a rod-shaped mass in the bladder. A post-procedure abdominal computed tomography confirmed an intrauterine device (IUD) with penetration of the bladder (Fig. 1A –D). Further history confirmed she had a ParaGard® IUD about ten years prior to presentation. We planned a laparoscopy for retrieval of the IUD and communicated with the urologist regarding the need for a possible concurrent urological procedure.
