How to deal with challenges in laparoscopic hysterectomy
AbstractHysterectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures performed by gynaecologists. Using laparoscopy has the advantages of short hospital stay, rapid recovery, rapid return to usual activities, fewer wound complications and less postoperative pain.1 Although there are few contraindications to laparoscopic hysterectomy, challenges including obesity, large uterus, adhesions from previous surgeries (in particular, previous bowel surgeries), narrow vagina, pelvic varicosities, early stage endometrial cancer and deep infiltrating endometriosis mean that specific training and surgical skills are required to complete...

Multifetal pregnancy reduction and selective termination
AbstractKey content Multifetal pregnancy reduction (MFPR) and selective termination (ST) are conceptually different procedures. Essential prerequisites for delivering these interventions are detailed counselling, multidisciplinary input within a tertiary fetal medicine service, careful choice of operative technique and appropriate gestational age, depending on the type of pregnancy and indication. Operative techniques that may be used are chemical, thermal, radiofrequency and laser, depending on chorionicity as well as other factors. Intracardiac KCl is appropriate when there is independent chorionicity and carries a lowe...

An update on the management of male infertility
AbstractKey content Male infertility underlies or contributes to up to 50% of infertility cases; current therapeutic interventions rely on assisted reproductive technology (ART), as medical or surgical treatments have limited value in enhancing semen quality or parameters. Lifestyle factors that affect male fertility could offer a therapeutic opportunity; however, their modification seems to be of variable benefit. In the quest for sperm functional assessment and selection tests, there is controversy over which patients, if any, should be tested for  sperm DNA fragmentation, as well as which test to perform. Sperm...

Ocular manifestations of pregnancy and labour: from the innocuous to the sight threatening
AbstractKey content Pregnancy may precipitate several physiological changes that can lead to ocular consequences; many of these are innocuous and require little more than reassurance for the patient. There are uncommon instances of new sight ‐threatening pathology that necessitate a prompt approach. Pregnant women presenting to the ophthalmologist with ocular symptoms can cause concern because alternative differentials may need to be considered: the potential teratogenic or fetotoxic effects of investigations or treatment mean that m anagement decisions may, in some cases, differ to those of the nonpregnant patient.L...

Syphilis in pregnancy: identifying and managing a historic problem on the rise
AbstractKey contentCases of syphilis in the UK rose by 162% between 2008 and 2018, prompting the publication of a Public Health England Action Plan in June 2019.While congenital syphilis remains rare, there have been recent cases in babies of women in England who had screened negative for the disease at booking; these women therefore acquired the infection in pregnancy.Timely diagnosis and treatment is critical because vertical transmission can be greatly reduced by these interventions.Learning objectivesTo highlight the clinical signs seen in early syphilis to enable timely diagnosis.To outline antenatal features seen in ...

Operative laparoscopy in advanced pregnancy beyond 20 weeks
AbstractIt is estimated that 0.5 –2% of women will require nonobstetric surgery during pregnancy,1,2 yet operative laparoscopy after 20 weeks of gestation remains uncommon. The most common indications for nonobstetric surgery during pregnancy are acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis1 and torsion of adnexal masses. Before any intervention in pregnancy, clinicians must consider the safety of the woman and be mindful of risks to the fetus. (Source: The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist)

Differences of sexual development and their clinical implications
AbstractKey contentThe term ‘differences of sex development’ (DSD) defines a wide spectrum of conditions in which the development of chromosomal, gonadal or anatomical sex is atypical.Presenting at birth, puberty or as primary subfertility, the precise diagnosis is difficult, clinical management is controversial and multidisciplinary team care is imperative.Following reclassification of the nomenclature and numerous advances in the field of molecular genetics, our understanding of the aetiologies underpinning these conditions has expanded.While optimal management of DSD remains controversial, it is clear that i...

To appreciate the treatment options available for primary and recurrent disease. To understand and ...
