Comparison of diagnostic accuracy of saline infusion sonohysterography, transvaginal sonography, and hysteroscopy in evaluating the endometrial polyps in women with abnormal uterine bleeding: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
Conclusions: Although that sonohysterography is a safe and relatively cheap method, which allows ruling out or confirming endometrial polyps, it cannot be replaced with hysteroscopy due to the fact that hysteroscopy combined with biopsy is the gold standard for ruling out malignancies in an endometrial polyp.

The role of carbon nanoparticles in guiding central neck dissection and protecting the parathyroid in transoral vestibular endoscopic thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer.
Authors: Xu Z, Meng Y, Song J, Wang Y, Yao X Abstract Introduction: Transoral vestibular endoscopic thyroidectomy (TOET) is sometimes used in young and middle-aged patients with papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC), but it is still difficult to identify lymph nodes (LNs) and parathyroid glands (PGs). Carbon nanoparticle (CN) is a novel lymph node tracer and has been widely used in open thyroid surgery. Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of CN in identifying LNs and preserving PGs in TOET with central neck dissection (CND). Material and methods: A total of 72 PTMC patients undergoing TOET with CND were retrosp...

The role of laparoscopy in paediatric and adolescent gynaecology.
Authors: Raźnikiewicz A, Korlacki W, Grabowski A Abstract Paediatric and adolescent gynaecology is a narrow field of medicine dealing with the diagnosis of and treatment of gynaecological diseases from the neonatal period to sexual maturity. The current trend in surgical gynaecology in the paediatric population is to minimise the degree of invasiveness of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. This contributes to reducing the number of complications and the risk of infertility. Laparoscopic procedures are a challenge for paediatric surgeons and gynaecologists, not only because of the age of treated patients, and a...

The investigation of salvage endoscopic laryngopharyngeal surgery after chemoradiotherapy.
Conclusions: If salvage ELPS is performed after radiation therapy, patients should be followed up on an outpatient basis to monitor the onset of subsequent cancers. Complications may become severe; therefore, postoperative management should be performed cautiously. In particular, vulnerable sites, such as the piriform sinus, may not be indicated for surgery. At this stage, the expectation is that patients need to be methodically selected. PMID: 32904634 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques)
