Platinum-resistant recurrent ovarian cancer has a poor prognosis, but combined therapy with bevacizumab and anticancer agents may be useful. We report a patient with long-term disease control by the combination of bevacizumab and gemcitabine (BEV + GEM). The patient was a 77-year-old woman with high-grade Stage IIIC serous ovarian carcinoma. In 2012, a complete response (CR) was obtained by neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy using paclitaxel plus carboplatin and tumor debulking surgery. After recurrence in 2013, CR was achieved again with gemcitabine plus carboplatin...

AIMS: To investigate the association of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-7 and MMP-9 with pelvic lymph node and para-aortic lymph node metastasis in early cervical cancer. METHODS: A total of 137 patients with early cervical cancer (Stage Ia2-IIa2) were recruited from the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Tumor Hospital of Liaoning Province from January 2009 to May 2014. We evaluated the expression of MMP-7 and MMP-9 by immunohistochemistry and their association with the clinicopathological parameters such as pelvic, common iliac and para-aortic lymph node metastasis...

AIM: Detection of cell-free fetal DNA in maternal blood is a type of noninvasive prenatal diagnosis test (NIPT), which has already been known for some time but has not yet been introduced in most of public hospitals in Spain. How the implementation of cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) in a contingent protocol has influenced the aneuploidy screening in our hospital is described. METHODS: Two cohorts of patients with positive combined screening were compared: the first one (years 2012-2013, 5747 patients) from a period of time in which the protocol valid until March 2016 - that included the use of invasive procedures - was applied; and the second one in which the current protocol - that included NIPT versus invasive procedures - was applied (first 7 months after protocol implementation, 898 patients)...

AIM: To avoid complications associated with uterine compression sutures, we devised a ring compression suture (RCS). METHODS: The RCS was performed on 12 patients with post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) during cesarean section. The suture was inserted 0.5 cm below the attachment point of the uterosacral ligament into the uterine cavity and pushed downward through the cervical canal into the vagina. The other end of the stitch was threaded through the lower abdominal wall, from the inside of the abdomen cavity to the outside of the abdominal wall, emerging at the external surface of the lower abdomen 2 cm lateral to the ventral median line and 1 cm above the symphysis pubis...

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors predictive of poor prognosis in women with stage III nonserous epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who had undergone maximal or optimal primary cytoreductive surgery (CRS) followed by six cycles of intravenous carboplatin/paclitaxel chemotherapy. METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective department database review was performed to identify patients with stage III nonserous EOC who had undergone maximal or optimal primary CRS followed by six cycles of carboplatin/paclitaxel chemotherapy at seven gynecological oncology centers in Turkey...

REVIEW
Margarida Lorigo, Melissa Mariana, Joana Feiteiro, Elisa Cairrao
The purpose of this review is to present an update of the main mechanisms involved in the physiological regulation of contraction and relaxation of the human umbilical artery (HUA) smooth muscle cells. A literature review was performed based on the analysis of papers available on PubMed. The most important and relevant studies regarding the regulation of the HUA are presented in this article. The vascular smooth muscle is a highly specialized structure, whose main function is to regulate the vascular tonus...

Hyperemesis gravidarum is persistent vomiting, seen more often in the first trimester of pregnancy, when the patient is unable to maintain adequate hydration. Intractable vomiting can lead to severe electrolyte imbalance, which may cause electrocardiogram abnormalities. Occasionally, ventricular tachycardia can complicate a pregnancy. Although its occurrence usually indicates an underlying cardiac structural or arrhythmic abnormality, it may rarely occur in a pregnant patient with structurally normal heart...

AIM: This study aimed to evaluate early clinicopathologic factors predicting gross residual disease after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer. METHODS: We analyzed clinicopathologic data of 68 patients with ovarian cancer who were treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval debulking surgery (NAC-IDS) between March 2006 and December 2016. All the patients received three cycles of NAC followed IDS. We evaluated all possible clinicopathologic characteristics, including reduction rates of serum CA-125 after each NAC and seven initial abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT) findings related to disease severity...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro effects of sEng and TGF-β on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and trophoblasts. METHODS: HUVECs and trophoblasts were treated with 1, 5, 10, 15, 30, 50, 80 and 100 μg/L sEng, TGF-β or (sEng + TGF-β) for 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 h, respectively. sEng, TGF-β and NO levels in culture media of HUVECs were measured by ELISA. Survival rates of HUVECs and trophoblasts were detected by 3-[4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2, 5 diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay...

AIM: This study aims to explore the accuracy, specificity and laws of axillary lymph node metastasis predicted by sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) by comparing axillary lymph node status via SLNB and axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) with nanocarbon as the tracer. METHODS: Forty six patients were retrospectively analyzed. These patients underwent SLNB with nanocarbon as the tracer from March 2013 to April 2014. RESULTS: Two hundred and forty six patients of sentinel lymph node (SLN) were successfully detected...

AIMS: To examine the prevalence and factors correlated with primary dysmenorrhea in young female subjects. METHODS: Cross-sectional research was conducted among 1305 female university students aged 19-25 years. The following measurements were taken: height, body mass, waist circumference, hip circumference, the length of index and ring finger. A questionnaire was used to obtain information on menstrual pains, the characteristics of the menstrual cycles (regularity, duration), the number of the days of menstrual bleeding, age at menarche, overall health and socio-economic status of the subjects...

Posterior urethral valve (PUV) rarely causes bladder rupture. We experienced hydronephrosis due to ureteral obstruction after the natural repair of a ruptured bladder in a fetus with PUV. Fetal ascites and oligohydramnios were diagnosed at 26 weeks' gestational age. While we followed up with ultrasonography, we regularly removed the fetal ascites via abdominal puncture, injecting warm saline instead of amniotic fluid. At 35 weeks' gestational age, the infant was diagnosed with severe bilateral hydronephrosis, absent of ascites and oligohydramnios...

AIM: The aims of this study were to investigate the regional differences in seroepidemiology of toxoplasmosis in preconception period among Chinese women of reproductive age and to evaluate associated risk factors. METHODS: This national, population-based, cross-sectional serosurvey covered all 31 provinces and province-level municipalities in Mainland China. Married women intending to get pregnant within 6 months between 2010 and 2012 were recruited. Information on demographic characteristics (age, place of residence, occupation, dietary habits and exposure to cat) was obtained using interviews, and venous blood samples were collected to screen for Toxoplasma gondii infection...

Premature chromatid separation/mosaic variegated aneuploidy (PCS/MVA) syndrome is a rare genetic disorder. In this case report, we describe the prenatal diagnosis of PCS/MVA syndrome in a 24-year-old, gravida 1, para 1, woman who was referred to us in her second trimester due to fetal growth restriction and extreme microcephaly (-5.0 standard deviations). Amniocentesis and chromosomal analysis confirmed PCS in 80% of cultured fetal cells. PCS findings were positive in 9% of paternal cells and 11% of maternal cells, indicative that both were PCS carriers...

AIM: To elucidate the incidence of and risk factors for severe hypertensive disorders (HD) and related maternal complications in uncomplicated twin pregnancies that reached 36 weeks' gestation. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of twin pregnancies delivered after 36 weeks' gestation. Cases of twin-twin transfusion syndrome, twin anemia-polycythemia sequence, malformed fetuses, monoamniotic twins, selective reduction, fetal therapy and HD or fetal death before 35 weeks' gestation were excluded...
