DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest and nothing to disclose. STUDY OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive surgical procedures have shown significant improvement over the last twenty years. Today, nearly half of the surgeries, including oncology, are performed with minimally invasive methods. In obstetrics and gynecology surgery practice, laparoscopy can now be used in almost all operations. In this video, we performed a laparoscopic evacuation of a 12-week missed abortion case like a cesarean section at the time of bilateral salpingectomy...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Nonobstetric surgery is performed in 1 : 200 to 1 : 500 of pregnant women in the United States annually. Previously, many argued that laparoscopy was contraindicated during pregnancy because of concerns for uterine injury and fetal malperfusion. Because surgeons have gained more experience with laparoscopy, it has become the preferred treatment modality for many surgical diseases in the gravid patient. RECENT FINDINGS: Specific preoperative considerations, intraoperative techniques, and postoperative management per trimester will be reviewed to optimize patient and surgical outcomes...

In recent years, more women are undergoing renal transplantation as a treatment for end-stage renal disease. Women with kidney transplants are prone to certain gynecologic issues which might necessitate hysterectomy. Laparoscopic hysterectomy can safely be performed in patients with prior unilateral or bilateral renal transplantation. Laparoscopy offers magnification of anatomy, decreased wound-related problems, and continuation of immunosuppression therapy. We present a case report and review of the literature for total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingectomy for a patient with prior bilateral renal transplant...

BACKGROUND: Surgical interventions are the mainstay of treatment for many gynecological cancers. Although minimally invasive surgery offers many potential advantages, performing laparoscopic pelvic surgery in obese patients remains challenging. To overcome this, many centers have shifted their practice to robotic surgery; however, the high costs associated with robotic surgery are concerning and limit its use. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to examine the feasibility of performing laparoscopic gynecologic oncology procedures in obese and morbidly obese patients...

Urinary tract injuries are unfortunate complications of pelvic surgery. With the increasing popularity of minimally invasive surgery, a thorough understanding of electrosurgical instrumentation and their thermal spread is important to reduce patient injuries. The index patient was a 50 year old woman who underwent a supracervical hysterectomy 5 years prior to her presentation with pelvic pain and dysuria. When her symptoms failed to improve despite antibiotic and analgesic therapy, an abdominal CT scan revealed an ovarian cyst and ascites...

Endometriosis (EM) occurring in adolescents presents distinct clinical and histologic characteristics compared to the disease in women. Because the symptoms of EM are nonspecific, often overlapping with those experienced in a range of gynecological and gastrointestinal conditions, the process of reaching a diagnosis of EM is often delayed. The diagnosis of EM is suspected depending on the history and the symptoms and signs, is corroborated by physical examination and imaging techniques, and is finally proved by histological examination of specimens collected during laparoscopy...

Deep endometriosis with colorectal involvement is considered one of the most severe forms of the disease due to its impact on patients' quality of life and fertility but also by the difficulties encountered by the clinicians when proposing a therapeutic strategy. Although the literature is very rich, evidence based medicine remains poor explaining the great heterogeneity concerning the management of such patients. Surgery therefore remains a therapeutic option. It improves the intensity of gynecological, digestive and general symptoms and the quality of life...
