OBJECTIVE: A Krukenberg tumor is a malignancy in the ovary that metastasizes from a primary site. Here, we report a very rare case of bilateral Krukenberg tumors of the ovaries arising from a primary adenocarcinoma of the small intestine in a 53-year-old Taiwanese woman. CASE REPORT: The patient presented with a 3-month history of abdominal distension and acid regurgitation. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy findings were negative. According to the preoperative image, we highly suspected that the small bowel mass was the primary tumor with metastatic tumors to bilateral ovarian masses...

OBJECTIVE: Although uterine didelphys per se is not associated with an impaired ability to conceive, the association between uterine anomalies and gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) remains unclear. The management of chemotherapy-resistant GTN in women with uterine didelphys raises a new issue regarding whether to perform a hemi-hysterectomy. CASE REPORT: A 23-year-old, gravida 1, para 0 Japanese woman was referred with a failed intermittent cervical dilatation for hematometra...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome of transvaginal mesh surgery as a management of recurrent pelvic organ prolapse, in patients previously treated with sacrocolpopexy. CASE REPORT: A series of three patients who developed recurrent pelvic organ prolapse more than 9 years after sacrocolpopexy. A 50-year-old and two 77-year-old patients who presented with recurrent pelvic organ prolapse at 9, 15 and 17 years, respectively after the primary abdominal sacrocolpopexy were managed by transvaginal mesh surgery...

OBJECTIVE: We describe a case of uterine rupture (UR) during pregnancy after laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) and discuss the risk factors of UR. CASE REPORT: A 37-year-old woman with multiple myomas underwent laparoscopic myomectomy. Subserosal and intramural myomas were enucleated, and the myometrial wounds were repaired with single-layer suturing. Sixteen months after the operation, the patient conceived. At 33 weeks of gestation, emergency cesarean section was performed for the indication of fetal distress...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical presentations, diagnosis, management, and outcomes of torsion of the pedunculated subserous uterine leiomyoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of patients with subserous uterine leiomyomas undergoing surgeries at National Taiwan University Hospital from January 2001 to December 2015. RESULTS: Five cases of torsion of pedunculated subserous uterine leiomyoma were identified...

OBJECTIVE: To report the objective outcome, subjective measurement of incontinence-related quality of life (QoL) for female urodynamic stress incontinence (USI) after transobturator sling surgery (TVT-O) and to evaluate the effects of surgical failure and complications on QoL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the data from women who underwent TVT-O for USI and completed two validated QoL questionnaires, the Urogenital Distress Inventory (UDI-6) and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ-7) preoperatively and at least 12 months postoperatively...

OBJECTIVE(S): The purpose of our study was to evaluate whether the inflammatory parameters of complete blood count (CBC), including white blood cell (WBC), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte-ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte-ratio (PLR), and mean platelet volume (MPV), had potential roles in the etiopathogenesis of unexplained infertility (UI) among nonobese women. We also aimed to investigate whether there could be an association between these markers and in vitro fertilization (IVF) success among nonobese women with UI...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence of endometrial adenocarcinoma of the uterine corpus has increased in Japan. This study aimed to clarify the relationships between this type of cancer and various data provided by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) accumulation in positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study cohort thus comprised 27 patients with endometrial adenocarcinoma who had undergone PET/CT examinations from April 2008 to March 2015...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate our experience with the application of uterine wall local resection and reconstruction to preserve the uterus in patients with morbidly adherent placenta. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a retrospective study, data from patients with morbidly adherent placenta who delivered by cesarean section between January 1, 2013 and May 31, 2016 were analyzed. Prophylactic abdominal aorta balloon occlusion and tourniquet were used to prevent massive hemorrhage in all 62 cases, followed by uterine wall local resection and reconstruction to preserve the uterus...

OBJECTIVE: We have recently reported that stress-induced phosphoprotein 1 (STIP1) is over-expressed in endometriosis/adenomyosis tissues. STIP1 may also be involved in immune regulation, thus we attempted to study the association between STIP1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and endometriosis/adenomyosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five STIP1 SNPs (rs7941773, rs2845597, rs4980524, rs2282490, and rs2236647) were selected for genotyping with matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) in 286 patients with endometriosis/adenomyosis and 288 healthy postmenopausal controls...

OBJECTIVE: Ultraminilaparotomy myomectomy (UMLT-M with less 4 cm transverse skin incision) and conventional 3-port wound laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) approaches were proposed as alternative minimally invasive procedures in the management of women with symptomatic uterine myomas but few studies have compared the outcomes of both procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 2002 and December 2003, 71 patients undergoing UMLT-M were compared with those 71 women undergoing LM...

OBJECTIVE: Our previous study has shown that high expression of α2,3-sialytransferase type I was associated with advanced stage serous type epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). The aim of the current study further attempts to evaluate the altered α 2,3-sialylation on the behavior of clear cell type EOC (C-EOC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Immunohistochemistry staining, bioinformatics analysis and tissue array were used to disclose the clinical significance of over α2,3-sialylation in C-EOC...

OBJECTIVE: To study the maternal and fetal outcomes and assess the risk factors in patients with rupture at the lower-segment or non-lower-segment scarred, or unscarred gravid uterus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gravid patients with uterine rupture were retrospectively collected in Chang-Gung Memorial Hospital from November 2004 to July 2017. The rupture timing and location in association with maternal and fetal outcomes were collected as well as the possible risk factors including surgical history and interval prior to conception were analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: Because of the immune modulatory effects of vitamin D3 in preeclampsia, we intend to have a systematic review and meta-analysis on association of both 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-OHD) level (parametric approach) and 25-OHD deficiency (non-parametric approach) with preeclampsia. As well, for the parametric part, we used receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used Web of Science, PubMed and Science Direct data bases through searching in titles...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of preoperative serum cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) in malignant ovarian germ cell tumors (MOGCTs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using information from medical databases of Asan Medical Center (Seoul, Korea), we investigated 161 patients with histologically diagnosed MOGCTs and whose preoperative serum CA 125 had been checked. We determined the optimal cutoff value of CA 125 as > 249.5 U/mL in MOGCTs using a receiver operating characteristic curve...

OBJECTIVE: Psoriasis is a multi-systemic chronic inflammatory skin disease. Previous data suggests that women with some chronic inflammatory diseases have diminished ovarian reserve. This study explores ovarian reserve in patients with psoriasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We prospectively analyzed 14 female patients with psoriasis and 35 healthy age and body mass index matched controls.
