In many developing countries like Cameroon, unsafe abortion is a major public health problem. It can be responsible for severe complications including damage to the digestive and/or urinary tract, sepsis, and uterine perforation. Uterine perforation could be caused by most of the instruments that are used to evacuate the uterus. We report a case of apparent uterine perforation and subsequent migration of the plastic or rubber catheter into the peritoneal cavity during an abortion procedure performed in a setting that may have been unsafe...

The growth of robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery has been exponential since its FDA approval for use in gynecologic surgery in the spring of 2005; however, controversy surrounding its use has been associated with this rise in utilization. Much of this discussion has pitted the conventional laparoscopist against the robotic surgeon particularly as it relates to issues such as operative time, costs, and the current scientific evidence. Although drawbacks exist in robotic technology, there are also clear and obvious advantages that are difficult to quantify in the scientific literature but evident to users...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe our technique of transvaginal sacrocolpopexy using single-port laparoscopy for middle compartment Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). DESIGN: Step-by-step explanation of the procedure using video. SETTING: More and more patients are pursuing minimally invasive surgery, which is becoming the trends for gynecological surgery nowadays. POP is not an exception. With application of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTEs), minimally invasive transvaginal sacrocolpopexy surgery assisted by single-port laparoendoscopy for POP becomes feasible...

Robot-assisted surgery has been developed to overcome limitations of conventional laparoscopy aiming to further optimize minimally invasive surgery. Despite the fact that robotics already have been widely adopted in urology, gynecology, and several gastro-intestinal procedures, like colorectal surgery, pancreatic surgery lags behind. Due to the complex nature of the procedure, surgeons probably have been hesitant to apply minimally invasive techniques in pancreatic surgery. Nevertheless, the past few years pancreatic surgery has been catching up...

INTRODUCTION: The use of robotics for benign etiology in gynecology has not proven to be more beneficial when compared to traditional laparoscopy. The major concern regarding robotic hysterectomy stems from its high cost. AIM: To evaluate the clinical utility and effectiveness of one-arm reduced robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy as a cost-effective surgical option for total robotic hysterectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A sample population of 54 women who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery for benign gynecologic indications was evaluated, and two groups were identified: (1) the two-armed robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery group (n = 38 patients), and (2) the three-armed robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery group (n = 16 patients)...

BACKGROUND: Methods available for assessing the learning curve, such as a predefined number of procedures or direct mentoring are lacking. Our aim was to describe the use of a statistical method to identify the minimal training length of an experienced sonographer, newly trained in deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) mapping by evaluating the learning curve of transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) in the preoperative assessment of endometriosis. METHODS: A retrospective study in a tertiary referral center for endometriosis...

OBJECTIVE: To compare two laparoscopic bipolar electrosurgical devices used in total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). An articulating advanced bipolar device (ENSEAL® G2, Ethicon) and an electrothermal bipolar vessel sealer (LigasureTM, Covidien) were analyzed for difference in surgeon perception of ease of instrument use and workload using the raw-Task Load Index (RTLX) scale. Secondarily, differences in operative time, estimated blood loss (EBL), and perioperative complication rates between the two devices were examined...

BACKGROUND: The advent of flexible CO2 laser fiber to gynecology arena might represent a turning point in the use of laser energy on a large-scale basis in gynecological surgery. However, there might be some concerns regarding the degree of surgical skills required to use the flexible system. The purpose of our study is to evaluate whether flexible CO2 laser fiber is technically accessible. METHODS: Fourteen residents in Obstetrics and Gynecology without surgical experience attending laparoscopic box training with both flexible CO2 laser fiber and traditional line-of-sight CO2 laser using Lumenis AcuPulse Duo CO2 laser (Lumenis, Israel) were prospectively enrolled...

Background: Laparoscopy is rapidly replacing laparotomy in the field of gynecologic surgery. Generally, there are limited data concerning the utility of single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) in gynecologic surgery. Specifically, in Saudi Arabia, a third-world country, data are further limited; only one related study has been conducted so far. The purpose of this study is to retrospectively report our single-institutional experience of SILS in terms of feasibility, safety and perioperative outcomes in the management of various gynecologic conditions...

We report a case of port-site metastasis after laparoscopic surgery for early stage uterine carcinosarcoma (UCS) and review the related literature. A 53-year-old woman with suspected uterine malignance underwent a total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, infra-colic omentectomy, and pelvic lymphadenectomy resulting pathologically in a stage IA UCS. Twelve months later she developed a palpable abdominal-wall mass at the trocar site without other synchronous metastases. A mass resection was performed and it was pathologically diagnosed with port-site metastasis of UCS...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Virtual simulators have played a vital role in preparing surgeons for laparoscopic and robotic procedures in gynecologic surgery. The efficacy of the simulator was evaluated to improve basic (trainee) laparoscopic skills and assess training levels. METHODS: This prospective, comparative study was conducted in volunteer residents in the obstetrics and gynecology training program of Université Laval. Study participants performed 9 laparoscopic simulator tasks on 2 different occasions...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and early postoperative outcomes of hysterectomies and salpingo-oophorectomies using transvaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (vNOTES). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The women undergoing vNOTES hysterectomies and salpingo-oophorectomies at a tertiary referral medical center between April 2016 and April 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. In all of the vNOTES procedures, a handmade glove port system comprised of a glove-wound retractor NOTES port was used...

BACKGROUND: Major vascular injury training may improve clinical skills and reduce patient morbidity during gynecologic laparoscopy; thus, reliable models for simulation should be identified. METHOD: Two laparoscopic major vascular injury simulations using synthetic or live porcine models were constructed. The primary surgeon was given the opportunity to complete both simulations. After obtaining peritoneal access, the surgeon quickly encountered a major vascular injury...

Accurate noninvasive diagnostic tests for endometriosis are still missing. This study evaluated the predictive value of the neuropeptide urocortin 1 (Ucn1) to detect pelvic endometriosis in symptomatic women. We enrolled prospectively 97 consecutive women submitted to gynecologic laparoscopy for chronic or acute pelvic pain, infertility or adnexal mass. Preoperative blood samples were assayed for Ucn1 using enzyme immunoassay. Patients with endometriosis had higher plasma Ucn1 levels compared to patients with no lesions (median 59 vs...
