REVIEW
Krista J Childress, Jennifer E Dietrich
Adnexal torsion is the fifth most common gynecologic emergency. The vague clinical presentation and variable imaging findings make the diagnosis difficult. If suspicion for adnexal torsion is high enough based on clinical symptoms and imaging findings, prompt intervention should include conservative management with laparoscopic adnexal detorsion and ovarian preservation even in the event of a necrotic-appearing ovary because studies persistently show follicular development and ovarian function after a short time period and no increased patient morbidity...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasonography (US) is the diagnostic modality of choice during work-up for ovarian torsion, although computed tomography (CT) may be used. We examined the utilization of CT in girls with ovarian torsion, and determined which patients are most likely to undergo this study. METHODS: The Nationwide Emergency Department Sample dataset was searched for patients <18 years who presented with ovarian torsion from 2006 to 2012. Hospitals were categorized by the volume of pediatric patients seen...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Ovarian torsion (OT) is uncommon, but can result in loss of reproductive function. Traditionally managed by adnexectomy, torsed adnexae are now being conserved, increasing the potential for recurrent OT. As a result, some experts suggest oophoropexy (OP) to prevent recurrence. We present here a series of 11 patients who underwent OP. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS: A retrospective case series was conducted from 2004 to 2013 identifying patients under age 18 with OT...

BACKGROUND: Primary leiomyoma of the ovary is a rare benign ovarian tumor that only seldom causes acute abdomen. CASE SUMMARY: A 35-year-old gravida 1, para 0 woman presented with a history of acute lower abdominal pain, and 10 weeks of amenorrhea. The patient's physical examination revealed abdominal tenderness, defense, and rebound. On ultrasonographic examination, a solid mass measuring 9.3 × 7.8 cm was detected adjacent to the uterine fundus. The mass was preoperatively diagnosed as a twisted pedunculated subserosal uterine myoma...

BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to investigate the effects of hydrogen rich saline solution (HRSS) in a rat model of ovarian ischemia-reperfusion injury. METHODS: Thirty-six female Wistar-albino rats were grouped randomly, into six groups of six rats. The groups were classified as: sham (S), hydrogen (H), torsion (T), torsion/detorsion (TD), hydrogen-torsion (HT), and hydrogen-torsion/detorsion (HTD). Bilateral adnexal torsion was performed for 3h in all torsion groups...

Purpose. Torsion of the fallopian tube, involving hydatids of Morgagni, though a rare cause of acute pelvic pain in young girls, can pose significant risks to future fertility. Tubal torsion may present as a diagnostic dilemma since the ovary itself usually appears normal on ultrasound. Thus, surgical intervention may be delayed which can lead to worsening necrosis and result in the need for resection of the affected tube. Methods. We reviewed two cases of fallopian tube torsion associated with hydatids of Morgagni in adolescent females...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric adnexal torsion is rare, can be challenging to recognize, and may result in ovarian loss. OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify and compare the defining characteristics of adnexal torsion in premenarchal and postmenarchal girls. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed at a tertiary care children's hospital, including patients diagnosed postnatally with adnexal (ovarian or tubal) torsion between 1997 and 2013. Proportions were compared using relative risk regression...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study is to test for: (a) correlation between the presence of a perifollicular T2-hypointense rim on MRI with the presence of perifollicular hemorrhage on histology; and (b) correlation between this finding and diminished ovarian viability after intra-operative detorsion. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Our IRB-approved, retrospective study evaluated 780 patients between August 2012 and February 2016 with ovarian torsion as a diagnostic consideration on the emergency department note...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To compare the rates of oophorectomy performed by pediatric surgeons for benign indications before and after the addition of a gynecologist to the surgical staff of a children's hospital. Study Design, Participants, Intervention and Outcome Measure: Retrospective chart review of patients ages 5-21 who underwent surgical management by pediatric surgeons for benign adnexal indications. Patient characteristics and clinical outcomes were recorded. Rates of oophorectomy for cases managed prior to the addition of a gynecologist (1998-2004) were compared to those managed after a gynecologist joined the surgical staff (2005-2013)...

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6) as a predictive value to make decision for surgical interventions when ovarian torsion (OT) is suspected. This study was performed on 284 women with lower abdominal pain. IL-6 levels were compared between OT (n = 67, 23.6%) and control groups (n = 217, 76.4%). For the purpose of diagnosis of OT, sensitivity and specificity of IL-6 at the cut-off point of 9.6 pg/ml were 41.79 and 82.49%, respectively. Patients with ovarian masses on ultrasound and IL-6 >9...

INTRODUCTION: Massive ovarian edema (MOE) is a rare disease and few reports have described the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging manifestations in pregnancy. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report here a case of MOE in a patient at 12 weeks' gestation. Abdominal T2-weighted MR images showed asymmetric ovarian enlargement in a teardrop configuration, hyperintense peripherally displaced follicles, and twisting of the vascular pedicle between the enlarged ovary and uterus. The diagnosis of MOE due to ovarian torsion was confirmed by exploratory laparotomy...

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a common medical problem, with almost 1 million cases diagnosed annually. Historically, PID has been a clinical diagnosis supplemented with the findings from ultrasonography (US) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. However, the diagnosis of PID can be challenging because the clinical manifestations may mimic those of other pelvic and abdominal processes. Given the nonspecific clinical manifestations, computed tomography (CT) is commonly the first imaging examination performed...

Jong-Hyun Kim
The term collision tumor refers to the coexistence of two adjacent but histological distinct tumors with no histological admixture at the interface. Collision tumors involving ovaries are extremely rare. A collision tumor composed of a dermoid cyst and fibrothecoma is extremely rare in menopausal women. The mechanism of the development of collision tumor is uncertain. During clinical evaluation, differentiation of characters of these ovarian tumors is important to decide appropriate treatment strategies and for good prognosis...

Objective. This study aims to evaluate whether alpha-lipoic acid and/or coenzyme Q10 can protect the prepubertal ovarian tissue from ischemia-reperfusion injury in an experimental rat model of ovarian torsion. Materials and Methods. Forty-two female preadolescent Wistar-Albino rats were divided into 6 equal groups randomly. The sham group had laparotomy without torsion; the other groups had torsion/detorsion procedure. After undergoing torsion, group 2 received saline, group 3 received olive oil, group 4 received alpha-lipoic acid, group 5 received coenzyme Q10, and group 6 received both alpha-lipoic acid and coenzyme Q10 orally...
