BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is characterized by shunts between the myometrial arteries and veins. Treatment is based on the severity of uterine bleeding and ranges from conservative medical approaches to embolization of affected arteries. The aim of study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of hysteroscopy for management of uterine AVM. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of a cohort of 11 cases occurring between March 2012 and December 2015 in our Regional Center of Excellence in Hysteroscopy, University of Florence...

INTRODUCTION: The Spies™ system (Karl-Storz®) was introduced into digital ureteroscopy to improve endoscopic vision. To date, there is no data to either indicate which of the Spies modalities is better for improving diagnosis and treatment procedures, nor to compare the modalities in terms of image quality. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the image quality of five Spies™ modalities (SM) to the standard white light in an in-vitro model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two standardized grids and 3 stones of different composition were recorded in white light and the 5SM (Clara, Chroma, Clara+Chroma), Spectra A and B) using 4 standardized aqueous scenarios...

Indocyanine green (ICG) represents a feasible alternative to the more traditional methods of sentinel lymph node (SLN) mapping, and interest in this promising tracer is growing. This report outlines our experience with ICG in a minimally invasive laparoscopic approach in women with endometrial cancer and cervical cancer using the Storz SPIES ICG near-infrared fluorescence imaging technology. A total of 49 patients with clinical stage I endometrial cancer (n = 40) or stage I cervical cancer (n = 9) were retrospectively reviewed...

PURPOSE: Developments in optical diagnostics have potential for less invasive diagnosis of upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma (UUT-UC). This systematic review provides an overview of technology, applications, and limitations of recently developed optical diagnostics in the upper urinary tract and outlines their potential for future clinical applications. In addition, current evidence was evaluated. LITERATURE SEARCH: A PubMed literature search was performed and articles on narrow band imaging (NBI), photodynamic diagnosis (PDD), Storz professional imaging enhancement system (SPIES), optical coherence tomography (OCT), and confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) regarding UUT-UC were reviewed for data extraction...
