The Yolk Sac. An interesting small structure of the human embryonic stage.
The yolk sac is a small extra embryonic structure that plays a crucial role during the first trimester of pregnancy. It provides nutrients, endocrine, metabolic and hematopoietic functions during embryogenesis reaching its peak of functionality between the 4th and 7th week of embryonic life (1). The size of the yolk sac ranges between 2 and 5 mm and continues to growth up to the 10th week of gestation. Abnormalities of the yolk sac are correlated with poor pregnancy outcomes (2, 3). Transcervical hysteroscopic embryoscopy is gaining an important role in the evaluation of the patient with first trimester pregnancy loss. (So...

Patient-Centered, Gynecology-Specific Prioritization of Non-urgent Surgeries During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Proposal of a Novel Scoring System
Obstetric and gynecologic procedures comprise more than a quarter of all surgeries performed in adult U.S. women [1]. Approximately 4.0 million gynecologic surgeries are performed in the U.S. annually. [1,2,3], with nearly 1.5 million performed in the inpatient setting [3]. However, in response to the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic of 2020, most U.S. health care institutions postponed non-urgent, essential (i.e., “elective”) procedures, including most gynecologic procedures [4-11].

Delayed ureteral leak related to use of suspension tapes during the laparoscopic radical hysterectomy
Recently, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for cervical cancer has been shown to result in a higher recurrence rate than open surgery (1). Manipulation and handling of the uterine cervix during MIS may contribute to this finding (2-4). Hence, minimal handling of the uterine cervix is being promoted in cases where MIS is still used. The parametrium can be sufficiently exposed by suspension of the umbilical ligament and ureter from the abdominal wall, minimizing the need for handling of the uterine cervix (2).

Honeycomb Decidual Pattern of the Endometrium in a Patient with Cesarean Section Scar Ectopic Pregnancy: An Unusual Presentation of a Physiologic Process
Decidualization of the endometrium is a complex physiologic process that occurs in preparation for implantation of the blastocyst [1,2]. In humans, the trophoblast invasion extends up to the junctional zone located in the inner third of the myometrium [3]. Endometrial decidualization is a global hormonal process that occurs as a consequence of progesterone production by the corpus luteum that precedes the arrival of the blastocyst [4]. These changes also occur in the case of an ectopic pregnancy. (Source: The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology)
