Laparoscopy after delivery

Tamer A Hosny
BACKGROUND: Oophoropexy for ovarian torsion is easy to be done by many tools either suturing to the lateral pelvic wall, plication of the ovarian ligament or even fixation to the back of the uterus, but it is little bit difficult to do it for pregnant women with less manipulation. OBJECTIVE: We propose that using trocar site closure needle can be easier and faster technique to do this. To assess the feasibility of using the trocar site closure needle to do oophoropexy in ovarian torsion and its possible applicability...

Uterine artery pseudoaneurysms (UAP) are rare but potentially life-threatening lesions. They may occur after traumatic deliveries, cesarean sections, and other interventions. We present a case of a 39-year-old woman with a UAP. The patient was accurately diagnosed using ultrasound imaging, with subsequent diagnostic hysteroscopy and laparoscopic excision of the UAP. In the present case, a ligation of the artery branch was performed to provide accurate hemostasis during UAP dissection. The vascular lesion was partially enucleated and removed, followed by recreation of the previous uterine shape...

PURPOSE: CO₂ leakage along the trocar (chimney effect) has been proposed to be an important factor underlying port-site metastasis after laparoscopic surgery. This study aimed to test this hypothesis by comparing the incidence of port-site metastasis between B-ultrasound-guided and laparoscopically-assisted hyperthermic intraperitoneal perfusion chemotherapy (HIPPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-two patients with malignant ascites induced by gastrointestinal or ovarian cancer were divided into two groups to receive either B-ultrasound-guided or laparoscopically-assisted HIPPC...

Infertility is a medical and psychosocial problem with a high prevalence. There are different treatments for this problem in Iranian traditional medicine. A 28-year-old woman presented with the complaints of 4 emergency operations of the left ovarian cyst during 4 years and infertility. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed an ovarian cyst, adhesion, and endometriosis. Hysteroscopy was unremarkable. After 2 months of letrozole administration, the ovarian cyst ruptured again. Considering the failure of conventional treatments, Iranian traditional medicine products were administered to the patient...

BACKGROUND: Pressurized intraperitoneal aerosol chemotherapy (PIPAC) is a novel drug delivery system able to induce regression of peritoneal metastasis (PM) in the salvage situation. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical characteristics, tumor histology, and extent of disease of the patients having undergone cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) after "neoadjuvant" PIPAC. METHODS: This study was performed at a single institution, tertiary center...

We report a case of spontaneous parasitic leiomyoma in a 30-year-old post-partum woman. A subserosal leiomyoma had been noted at the first trimester screening, and she had experienced persistent abdominal pain during her previous pregnancy. She was referred to hospital with severe abdominal pain at 7 months after delivery. We detected a homogenous solid tumor that resembled the subserosal leiomyoma but was completely detached from the uterus. On laparoscopy the vascularization of the tumor was supplied from the omentum, which was tightly adherent to the tumor...

UNLABELLED: STUDY  OBJECTIVE: Intraligamental myomas (IMs) represent 6% to 10% of all uterine myomas. An IM growing from the lateral uterine wall into the broad ligament often presents as a large pelvic mass without symptoms. Removing a large IM can be difficult because of the limited operative field and poses challenges during conventional laparoscopic surgical approaches. The risk of injury to the ureter and uterine artery during myomectomy is greater than that during other types of myoma...

STUDY QUESTION: Which is the best method for human ovarian tissue cryopreservation: slow freezing/rapid thawing (SF/RT) or vitrification/warming (V/W)? SUMMARY ANSWER: The conventional SF/RT protocol used in this study seems to better preserve the morpho-functional status of human cryopreserved ovarian tissue than the used open carrier V/W protocol. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Cryopreservation of human ovarian tissue is generally performed using the SF/RT method...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To show the possibility of laparoscopic management of uterine rupture. DESIGN: Video with explanations. SETTING: In the medical management with misoprostol for termination of pregnancy at any time the risk of uterine rupture may be possible. The risk is likely higher in women with a previous uterus surgery. In a systematic review of available studies, the risk of rupture was .28% among women with a prior cesarean delivery who were undergoing second-trimester misoprostol-induced abortion, meaning if 414 women with a history of cesarean delivery were given misoprostol for second-trimester abortion, 1 would experience uterine rupture...

Heterotopic pregnancy is the coexistence of living or dead intrauterine pregnancy, single or multiple, and extrauterine pregnancy located in the oviduct, ovary, uterine corner, cervix or peritoneal cavity. This condition is very rare (1:30 000 pregnancies). Nevertheless, in the latter years because of the development and accessibility of assisted reproductive techniques, the incidence of heterotopic pregnancies increased to 1:100 of pregnancies. The aim of this report is to present a case of early recognized intrauterine and extrauterine pregnancy...

A 27-year-old woman underwent a first vaginal delivery at our institution. She returned four days after delivery, presenting with abdominal pain and an unexplained drop in her hemoglobin value, without external bleeding. The initial computed tomography abdominal scan revealed an isolated diffuse hemoperitoneum. A laparoscopy did not find the cause of bleeding. A second computed tomography scan, performed 15 days later, revealed hemoperitoneum associated with a false aneurysm of the right uterine artery. Treatment consisted of embolization of the uterine arteries, with clinical success...
