Adnexa uteri

M Scharitzer, D Tamandl, A Ba-Ssalamah
CLINICAL ISSUE: Besides the upper abdominal parenchymal organs, the increasing application of cross-sectional imaging has also led to a rising number of incidental findings in the kidneys, adrenal glands, adnexa uteri, the gastrointestinal tract, mesentery and abdominal lymph nodes. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Abdominal computed tomography investigations often show unexpected findings without any correlating symptoms. The growing clinical relevance is due to the large number of incidental findings as well as an increasing awareness of ethical and socioeconomic factors...

This study was conducted to know the impact of cryopreservation on caprine fetal adnexa derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on the basic stem cell characteristics. Gravid caprine uteri (2-3 months) were collected from local abattoir to derive (amniotic fluid [cAF], amniotic sac [cAS], Wharton's jelly [cWJ], and cord blood [cCB]) MSCs and expanded in vitro. Cells were cryopreserved at 3rd passage (P3) using 10% DMSO. Post-thaw viability and cellular properties were assessed. Cells were expanded to determine growth kinetics, tri-lineage differentiation, localization, and molecular expression of MSCs and pluripotency markers; thereafter, these cells were transplanted in the full-thickness (2 × 2cm(2) ) rat skin wound to determine their wound healing potential...

The aim of our study was to evaluate the rate of unexpected malignancies among women who underwent laparoscopical supracervical hysterectomy (LASH) with power morcellation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The retrospective analysis included clinical data of 426 consecutive female patients who underwent LASH with power morcellation due to presumed benign disorders (78...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) and vaginal hysterectomy (VH) carried out on the occasion of non-malignant diseases and lesions of the female genital system, by assessing the: operative time, price, blood loss, hospital stay, intra and postoperative complications, satisfaction of the patient. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 187 women aged 38-71 years, with hysterectomy with or without salpingo-oophorectomy by LAVH-58 (31%) women or VH-129 (69%) women, on the occasion of non-malignant diseases and lesions of the female genital system...

The present study was conducted with an objective of isolation, in vitro expansion, growth kinetics, molecular characterization and in vitro differentiation of fetal adnexa derived caprine mesenchymal stem cells. Mid-gestation gravid caprine uteri (2-3 months) were collected from abattoir to derive mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from fetal adnexa {amniotic fluid (cAF), amniotic sac (cAS), Wharton's jelly (cWJ) and cord blood (cCB)} and expanded in vitro. These cultured MSCs were used at the 3rd passage (P3) to study growth kinetics, localization as well as molecular expression of specific surface antigens, pluripotency markers and mesenchymal tri-lineage differentiation...

The author analyzes more than 40 years of his own experience concerning the outcome of pediatric gynecology patients who underwent surgery in the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Debrecen University in Hungary. Traditional surgical interventions were performed, and, some new methods elaborated by the author. The age of patients who underwent surgery ranged from infancy to 18 years. The objective of this publication is to describe general principles to support the work of those who are currently active in this area or have chosen the area for their future activity...

The presence of adnexal masses during pregnancy is a rare situation but due to a broader use of sonography; its occurrence is increasing. Their management essentially relies on imagery. We report the case of an 18 weeks-pregnant women presenting bilateral teratomas visualized by RMI. She was successfully treated by laparoscopy. This paper approaches the management of adnexal masses during pregnancy. The epidemiology, possible complications, diagnostic approach and the therapeutic management are discussed.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of an eHealth intervention on recovery and return to work, after gynaecological surgery. DESIGN: Randomised multicentre trial that ran from March 2010 until September 2011. SETTING: Secondary care in seven general and university hospitals in The Netherlands. POPULATION: A cohort of 215 women (aged 18-65 years) who had a hysterectomy and/or laparoscopic adnexal surgery for a benign indication...

Pulmonary metastasis of low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma is rare. A 61-year-old woman visited our hospital due to an abnormal chest shadow. Computed tomograhy showed a mass that was composed of a cystic and solid lesion, in the right lower lobe. She had undergone a combination of a hysterectomy and adnexectomy for a low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma 57 months previously, and undergone adjuvant radiation therapy at the local site. To obtain a definitive diagnosis of the lung tumor, we performed lobectomy of the right lower lobe and lymph node dissection...

A 48-year old woman presented with chronic back pain. Previous examinations had been inconclusive. Gynaecological examination revealed large cystic masses on the fundus uteri and left adnexa. Laparoscopy and histopathology showed unusually extensive cystic endosalpingiosis covering the serosa-coated uterine surface as well as the adnexa on both sides. After uneventful laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy the patient quickly recovered and was relieved of her chronic backache. Virtual slides: http://www...

PURPOSE: This review aims to sum up current knowledge on the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound features suggestive of acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). METHODS: A PubMed database search was undertaken, using the MeSH terms "(pelvic inflammatory disease or salpingitis or adnexitis) and ultrasonography". We included original articles evaluating the performance of vaginal ultrasound in detecting acute PID. RESULTS: Seven articles were selected, including between 18 and 77 patients each...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the distribution of autonomic nerves and blood and lymphatic vessels in the uterosacral ligament, elucidate detailed anatomy at a surgical level and provide pathobiological evidence for improvement of nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy. STUDY DESIGN: Surgical samples were collected from 15 patients who underwent radical hysterectomy for early stage cervical cancer (FIGO Ib1-IIa). Twenty-nine fresh specimens were divided into cervical, intermediate and sacral sections, and then subdivided into superficial and deep portions from the middle: the medial surface and lateral surface were also subdivided in order to analyze lymphatic vessels...

BACKGROUND: Endometriosis is a common condition which causes pain and reduced fertility. Treatment can be difficult, especially for severe disease, and an accurate preoperative assessment would greatly help in the managment of these patients. The objective of this study is to assess the accuracy of pre-operative transvaginal ultrasound scanning (TVS) in identifying the specific features of pelvic endometriosis and pelvic adhesions in comparison with laparoscopy. METHODS: Consecutive women with clinically suspected or proven pelvic endometriosis, who were booked for laparoscopy, were invited to join the study...

BACKGROUND: Hernia uteri inguinale (HUI), or uterus-containing inguinal hernia, is an extremely rare condition in which the uterus and uterine adnexa are found in the inguinal hernial sac in female infants. The uterus may be free within the sac adherent to the wall by adhesions or a true sliding component. However, in true sliding-type HUI, one of the walls of the hernia sac is formed by the uterus itself. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records for all female children with inguinal hernia who were operated from 1999 through 2010 were reviewed retrospectively (n = 3100)...

SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS: One hundred thirty consecutive patients with adnexal tumors. INTERVENTIONS: Patients underwent laparoscopy using a single port (n = 75), 2 ports (n = 22), or 4 ports (n = 33)...
