OBJECTIVE(S): To investigate Mesenteric vascular and nerve Sparing Surgery (MSS) as surgical laparoscopic technique to perform segmental intestinal resection for deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study between January 2013 and December 2016. Consecutive patients with suspected intestinal DIE underwent clinical and imaging evaluation to confirm intestinal involvement. Indications for radical surgery and surgical technique (intestinal resection versus shaving) were consistent with Abrão algorithm...

Religious teachings encourage fertility. The rapid progress of reproductive science has proved a challenge to interpret and adapt to assisted reproductive techniques which were not even dreamed of in ancient scriptures. The clash between religion and science has produced separate laws for each religion and reproductive practitioners are often at a loss to understand and accept them. Four lay members of different religions have set out the thinking of their religion regarding assisted reproductive techniques, concentrating in particular on gamete donation...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether there were changes in the incidence, management and outcomes of ectopic pregnancy hospitalisations in Ireland during 2005-2016. STUDY DESIGN: Population-based study was carried out from January 2005 to December 2016. A total of 12,098 women hospitalised due to ectopic pregnancy. All acute maternity hospital settings in the Republic of Ireland. Electronic health records were retrieved using the Hospital In-Patient Enquiry database...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between early increase in the serum hCG levels (days 0-4) and treatment success rates following methotrexate therapy in ectopic pregnancy patients. STUDY DESIGN: A level II-2 case-control study of involving 140 patients treated with methotrexate for ectopic pregnancy at the gynecology department in a tertiary care hospital. RESULTS: A logistic regression model for the "failure of treatment" was fitted with serum hCG levels change between day 0 and day 4, patient age, pregnancy age at day-0, and day-0 β-hCG level as predictors...

REVIEW

Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is a poorly understood disease of the late second or third trimester of pregnancy, typically associated with rapid resolution following delivery. It is characterized by pruritis, elevated serum bile acids, and abnormal liver function tests and has been linked to stillbirth, meconium passage, respiratory distress syndrome and fetal asphyxial events. The incidence is highly variable, dependent both on the ethnic makeup of the population as well as the diagnostic criteria being used...

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have shown that mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number in human sperm is associated with semen quality. This study examines whether there is association between seminal cell-free mtDNA copy number and human semen parameters. STUDY DESIGN: Seminal cell-free mtDNA copy number was measured in 205 men. Semen reactive oxygen species (ROS) level was also measured. Sperm quality was assessed using World Health Organization criteria, while sperm motility parameters were determined by computer-aided sperm analysis...

BACKGROUND: Antenatal detection of the small for gestational (SGA) fetus has become an important indicator of quality of antenatal care in the UK. This has been driven by a desire to reduce stillbirth in this at risk group. METHODS: We conducted a postal survey of 187 NHS consultant units within the UK to determine what the current practice for the detection and subsequent management of the suspected SGA fetus was following the guidance from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To assess agreement of Doppler ultrasound measurements of the two umbilical arteries in small-for gestational age (SGA) fetuses, and to compare discriminative ability between the two arteries for adverse perinatal outcome. STUDY DESIGN: We analysed a prospective cohort of singleton SGA pregnancies, in which the pulsatility index (PI) of both umbilical arteries was standardly measured by Doppler ultrasound in the free-floating umbilical cord. The outcome of interest was a composite adverse outcome, defined as perinatal death, Apgar score <7 at 5 min, cesarean section for fetal distress, and neonatal intensive care unit admission...

In this study, we aimed to investigate associations between polymorphisms of folate metabolic pathway genes and unexplained pregnancy loss (UPL) using matched maternal-fetal samples. A total of 113 mother-abortus and 92 mother-newborn samples were collected. Among the 113 mother-abortus samples, 50 with chromosomal abnormality and 22 with maternal cell contamination were excluded. Samples were genotyped for RFC-1 80A>G, MTHFD1 1958 G>A, MTHFR 677C>T, and MTHFR 1298A>C polymorphisms using restriction fragment length polymorphism markers...

OBJECTIVE(S): To investigate the potential role of 'a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type motifs-2 (ADAMTS-2), collagen type-1, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-3 (TIMP-3) and papilin' levels in the uterosacral ligament (USL) and cardinal ligament (CL) of the uterus on the etiopathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) among postmenopausal women without stress urinary incontinence (SUI). STUDY DESIGN: A total of 45 postmenopausal women, 22 diagnosed as POP stage III-IV and 23 age- and body mass index (BMI)-matched controls referred for hysterectomy due to POP or benign gynecological disease, respectively, were recruited prospectively for our study...

OBJECTIVE: External cephalic version is commonly not performed in women with a previous cesarean section. Fear of uterine rupture and cesarean section in labor are prominent. The risks, however, of these are unclear. This study aims to document the safety and efficacy of external cephalic version in women with a prior cesarean section in a series of 100 consecutive attempts, and to perform a literature of the existing literature. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective cohort study of prospectively collected data of external cephalic version attempts in women at term with a previous cesarean section, and a literature review of previously published series...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of prenatal measurement of umbilical cord length using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in comparison with that of postnatal visual measurement. STUDY DESIGN: Patients who underwent MRI pelvimetry to rule out cephalopelvic disproportion were recruited. We compared the umbilical cord length measured prenatally using the three-dimensional image of the umbilical cord constructed by AZE virtual place system (AZE® , Japan) on MRI (M-length) and measured postnatally using the actual length (R-length)...

PURPOSE: The present study aimed to elucidate the hysteroscopic tissue removal system (MyoSure) efficacy and safety amongst uterine cavity pathologies (UCPs), and to determine its feasibility in an outpatient setting. We also sought to identify possible factors that could adversely affect complete lesion excision. METHODS: 124 women underwent MyoSure procedure and 135 UCPs were excised, between January 2017 and January 2018. The MyoSure efficacy was evaluated, and potential factors correlated with increased incomplete excision rate were assessed, using both univariate and multivariate analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Many women are affected by stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Due to investigations of the safety of synthetic mesh slings, there has been renewed interest in autologous slings. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether different sling material affects outcomes and patient satisfaction. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of patients who underwent sling placement between May 2011 and April 2017 for SUI or stress-predominant mixed urinary incontinence...
