BACKGROUND: The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that "the surgeon and patient discuss the potential benefits of the removal of the fallopian tubes during a hysterectomy in women at population risk of ovarian cancer who are not having an oophorectomy," resulting in an increasing rate of salpingectomy at the time of hysterectomy. Rates of salpingectomy are highest for laparoscopic and lowest for vaginal hysterectomy. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of bilateral salpingectomy at the time of vaginal hysterectomy...

BACKGROUND: Choriocarcinoma of the ovary is rare. This tumor can arise from gestational tissue or pure germ cells of the ovary, the former results in gestational choriocarcinoma. The clinical characteristics and histology of both tumor types are identical, differentiation of these tumors is necessary for effective treatment. One strategy for the differentiation of these tumors types is to identify the presence of paternal DNA by DNA polymorphic analysis. CASE PRESENTATION: In the present case, a 27-year-old patient with a history of amenorrhea, lower abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding received a laparoscopic dissection of cystic mass of the right ovary according to an initial diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy...

Evaluation of the vaginal bleeding of postmenopausal women is crucial to diagnose endometrial lesions. Endometrial thickness measured by transvaginal ultrasonography provides an important reference for diagnosis. Currently, no specific cut-off value of endometrial thickness has been identified to predict the malignant risk for endometrial thickening and postmenopausal women without any symptoms. Most of resected endometrial specimens from postmenopausal women without any symptoms are diagnosed as benign or normal tissues...

Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication that can occur after various uterine manipulations. A 34-year-old nulliparous patient with a previous history of four consecutive miscarriages with unknown etiologies underwent transmyometrial oocyte retrieval as a result of malpositioning of the right ovary. Six days later, she experienced massive vaginal bleeding after a day of intermittent bleeding and was transferred to our hospital. At triage, continuous bleeding from the cervical canal was observed...

Uterine adenofibroma is an extremely rare benign mixed mullerian tumor, most often presenting as vaginal mass with pain and abnormal uterine bleeding in postmenopausal females. Nonpuerperal uterine inversion is also an uncommon entity. We present a rare case of nonpuerperal uterine inversion due to a uterine adenofibroma. A 56-year-old postmenopausal female presented to us with bleeding and discharge per vaginum. Examination showed a polyp. Due to associated comorbidities, polypectomy was chosen as management modality failing which laparotomy was done, and the uterus was found to be inverted through the cervix, hysterectomy was done...

BACKGROUND: Primary fallopian tube carcinoma (PFTC) is a rare tumour of the female genital tract with an incidence of 0.1-1.8% of all genital malignancies, and it is very difficult to diagnose preoperatively, because of its non-specific symptomatology. In most cases, it is an intraoperative finding or a histopathological diagnosis. It is a tumour that histologically and clinically resembles epithelial ovarian cancer. CASE PRESENTATION: We are reporting a case of a 62-year-old, postmenopausal women with primary fallopian tube carcinoma of the right fallopian tube in stage IA...

Exposure to air pollution may adversely impact placental function through a variety of mechanisms; however, epidemiologic studies have found mixed results. We examined the association between traffic exposure and placental-related obstetric conditions in a retrospective cohort study on Cape Cod, MA, USA. We assessed exposure to traffic using proximity metrics (distance of residence to major roadways and length of major roadways within a buffer around the residence). The outcomes included self-reported ischemic placental disease (the presence of at least one of the following conditions: preeclampsia, placental abruption, small-for-gestational-age), stillbirth, and vaginal bleeding...

Vaginal carcinoma is a rare condition. In this report, we describe a case of a poorly differentiated aggressive adenocarcinoma in a woman with a three month history of vaginal bleeding and a negative Pap smear done six months prior to her consultation. Specular examination showed a normal cervix, but there was a bleeding ulcer (2 cm in diameter) in the upper third of the vagina. Cytology revealed poorly differentiated atypical cells, and the biopsy established a diagnosis of vaginal adenocarcinoma with little differentiation...
