Laparoscopic resection of a high grade serous ovarian cancer that recurred at the vaginal stump with extensive pelvic adhesions after complete surgical staging
We reported a case of a 62-year-old woman with a history of complete surgical staging of high grade serous ovarian cancer staged IIB, which consisted of hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, pelvic and para-aortic lymph node dissection, and omentectomy, about 18 months before this admission.

In this study, we validated this new system's ability to predict pain and infertility symptoms using a prospective, multi-center study involving over 1,200 cases and compared it to the ASRM classification for endometriosis. Future improvements are necessary to the proposed classification and the development of a preoperative classification by imaging are the next steps.

Regarding "Ultrasound-guided Microwave Ablation in the Management of Symptomatic Uterine Myomas: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis"
Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors in the female reproductive system. Most fibroids are asymptomatic, but they can cause certain obvious symptoms, such as menorrhagia, secondary anemia, and pelvic pressure1. To date, the primary treatment methods are gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues, myomectomy, hysterectomy and uterine artery embolization. However, the complications brought by these therapies are unacceptable to many patients. Therefore, minimally invasive and effective treatments based on the protection of the uterus have attracted more and more attention in recent years2. (Source: The Journal of ...

Although most women with fibroids are asymptomatic, for some women fibroids can significantly affect quality of life. Common symptoms of fibroids include abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain and bulk symptoms, infertility and other adverse reproductive outcomes [2].

Comparison of clinical and reproductive outcomes between adenomyomectomy and myomectomy
Women with adenomyosis may show a lower pregnancy rate and a higher miscarriage rate than healthy women. There is also a general agreement that leiomyomas, either submucosal or intramural, negatively affect fertility, when compared with women without fibroids. Some of these women may benefit from adenomyomectomy, however this cytoreductive procedure is considered invasive and technically challenging especially in severe diffuse cases. The study aimed to compare the clinical and reproductive outcomes of patients who underwent adenomyomectomy with those of patients who underwent intramural myomectomy. (Source: The Journal of...
