BACKGROUND: Uterine fibroids are the commonest benign tumor of the female genital tract. They affect a significant proportion of reproductive aged women and may cause excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain or pressure, and adversely affect reproductive outcomes. However, many women remain asymptomatic. Fibroids are the first indication for hysterectomy, but myomectomy is the most suitable surgical option for women who desire preservation of their fertility potential. Only a selected group of women of childbearing age will benefit from a myomectomy, as the consequences of myomectomy on reproductive function have remained controversial...

Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a rare disorder characterized by the presence of multifocal nodules and tumors composed of proliferating smooth muscle tissue, spread throughout the peritoneum. Estrogens and progesterone are considered to be the main factors initiating the formation of disseminated leiomyomatosis. Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis is often asymptomatic, and acyclic vaginal bleeding or pain in the lower abdomen is associated with leiomyomatous rebuilt uterus corpus. Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis can have other ambiguous presentation...

INTRODUCTION: A cesarean section is the most frequently performed surgery in modern obstetrics. In case of an incorrect wound healing process there is a risk of a persistent uterine wall defect. Nowadays, due to the high frequency of cesarean sections, obstetricians have to deal with the threat of uterine rupture due to pathological wound healing. It has been proven that isthmocele can cause abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), pelvic pain (PP), and secondary infertility (SI), and can be a place of improper pregnancy placement...

PURPOSE: Based on a previous case report of menometrorrhagia (prolonged/excessive uterine bleeding, occurring at irregular and/or frequent intervals) in MRI workers with intrauterine devices (IUDs), it was evaluated whether this association could be confirmed. METHODS: A survey was performed among 381 female radiographers registered with their national association. Logistic regression was used to analyze associations of abnormal uterine bleeding with the frequency of working with MRI scanners, presence near the scanner/in the scanner room during image acquisition, and with scanner strength or type...

BACKGROUND: Uterine fibroids are smooth muscle tumours arising from the uterus. These tumours, although benign, are commonly associated with abnormal uterine bleeding, bulk symptoms and reproductive dysfunction. The importance of progesterone in fibroid pathogenesis supports selective progesterone receptor modulators (SPRMs) as effective treatment. Both biochemical and clinical evidence suggests that SPRMs may reduce fibroid growth and ameliorate symptoms. SPRMs can cause unique histological changes to the endometrium that are not related to cancer, are not precancerous and have been found to be benign and reversible...

Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm (UAP) can cause severe secondary post-partum hemorrhage. The lag time between the triggering event and the manifestation of UAP reportedly usually occurs within a couple of weeks. In this case report, a 46-year-old woman with no significant comorbidities presented with a one-month history of increasing lower abdominal pain. She had previously undergone two cesarean sections (14 and 10 years earlier). A computed tomography angiogram revealed a left UAP. The patient was successfully treated by selective embolization and had an uneventful recovery...

OBJECTIVE: Progestin-only contraceptives induce abnormal uterine bleeding, accompanied by pro-thrombin leakage from dilated endometrial microvessels and increased thrombin generation by human endometrial stromal cell (HESC)-expressed tissue factor. Initial studies of the thrombin-treated HESC secretome identified elevated levels of cleaved chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4 (CSPG4), impairing pericyte-endothelial interactions. Thus, we investigated direct and CSPG4-mediated effects of thrombin in eliciting abnormal uterine bleeding by disrupting endometrial angiogenesis...

BACKGROUND: Chemotherapy is considered the most appropriate treatment for metastatic uterine sarcoma, despite its limited efficacy. No other treatment has been conclusively proved to be a real alternative, but some reports suggest that anti-hormonal therapy could be active in a small subset of patients. We report the case of a patient with metastatic uterine carcinosarcoma with positive hormonal receptors and a complete pathological response. CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old white woman presented to our emergency room with hypovolemic shock and serious vaginal bleeding...

Endometriosis is a common cause of pelvic pain and affects up to 10% of women of reproductive age. Aberrant progesterone signaling in the endometrium plays a significant role in impaired decidualization and establishment of ectopic endometrial implants. Eutopic endometrial cells from women with endometriosis fail to downregulate genes needed for decidualization, such as those involved in cell cycle regulation, leading to unbridled proliferation. Several causes of progesterone resistance in the endometrium have been postulated, including congenital "preconditioning", whereby the in utero environment renders infants susceptible to neonatal uterine bleeding and endometriosis...

Genital bleeding is the most common and serious complication in gynecologic malignancy. Different techniques are available for the control of severe bleeding, but standard treatment strategies have not been determined. Herein we report on the successful use of the balloon technique in two cases of genital bleeding in uterine neoplasm. The first case was of advanced cervical cancer with massive genital bleeding during radiotherapy. A metreurynter (mini-metro) was inserted into the vagina and hemostasis was indirectly achieved in the vaginal hematoma...

Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) remains one of the leading causes of maternal death worldwide and can be classified as either immediate (primary) or delayed (secondary) according to the onset time - before or after 24 hours postpartum. Uterine pseudoaneurysm is a rare cause of PPH that has been suggested to arise from abnormal vascular regression and a recurrent vascular healing state, such as a vascular stricture and relaxation with thrombin deposits after placental expulsion. With advances in multidetector computed tomography, 3D-computed tomography with angiography can aid in identifying the location and originating vessels of the pseudoaneurysm via fast and clear 3D images...

INTRODUCTION: Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is the commonest menstrual problem during perimenopause. The International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics working group on menstrual disorders has developed a classification system (PALM-COEIN) for causes of the AUB in non-gravid women. The present study was conducted with the aim to study the two components of this system in clinical practice in general and to establish a clinico-pathological correlation of AUB with context of PALM component in particular...

Symptomatic uterine fibroids affect 25% of women of childbearing potential and are responsible for various symptoms, mainly menometrorrhagia, pelvic pain and infertility. No currently available medical treatment is able to eradicate fibroids. Two treatments are indicated preoperatively to reduce bleeding and decrease the size of fibroids: GnRH agonists and ulipristal acetate. Ulipristal acetate, a selective progesterone receptor modulator, exerts an antagonist effect on fibroid tissue, inducing apoptosis. It rapidly induces amenorrhoea (after an average of seven days of treatment) and reduces fibroid volume...
