The First Mediterranean Seminar on Science Writing, Editing & Publishing (SWEP 2016) was held in Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina from 2nd to 3rd December 2016. It was organized by Academy of Medical Sciences of Bosnia and Herzegovina, running concurrent sessions as part of its Annual Meeting titled " "Days of AMNuBiH - Theory and Practice in Science Communication and Scientometrics". Hotel Bosnia in the city centre was the chosen venue. On the first day, nineteen presentations on various issues of science writing and publication ethics were delivered by speakers from Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina and the UK (Asim Kurjak, Milivoj Boranić, Doncho Donev, Osman Sinanović, Miro Jakovljević, Enver Zerem, Dejan Milošević, Silva Dobrić, Srećko Gajović, Izet Mašić, Armen Yuri Gasparyan, Šekib Sokolović, Nermin Salkić, Selma Uzunović, Admir Kurtčehajić, Edin Begić and Floreta Kurti)...

Ultrasonography, especially 3D, is essential in the diagnosis and preoperative evaluation of gynecologic surgeries and is important in surgical planning and counseling of patients. In addition, it is useful during hysteroscopic procedures, particularly difficult Asherman syndrome cases, resection of transverse vaginal septum, and treatment of hematometria. 3D ultrasound is especially helpful for fibroid mapping as the simultaneous visualization of the endometrium and myometrium with the coronal view is possible, it can be done by the gynecologist and at a lower cost than an magnetic resonance imaging...

OBJECTIVE: To review the scientific literature on cervical insufficiency and indications of cervical cerclage cervix. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The PubMed database, the Cochrane Library and the recommendations from the French and international obstetrical societies between 1972 and June 2016 have been consulted. RESULTS: Cervical insufficiency is a pathophysiological concept and to date no consensual definition is available: the diagnosis is clinical and discussed retrospectively in case of patients with a history of late miscarriages and/or spontaneous preterm delivery, with asymptomatic dilatation of the cervix (professional consensus)...

Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors of the uterus. Their main symptoms are prolonged menstrual bleeding, leading over time to a secondary anemia, bleeding and spotting between periods, pelvic pain and infertility. It is recognized that fibroids are the most common indication for surgery in gynecology. Currently radical surgical treatment of fibroids is abandon. Ulipristalu acetate is used in pharmacological treatment. This medicine reduces the growth of fibroids. New non-invasive technique is also MR-guided focused ultrasound surgery using thermal tissue destruction by focusing ultrasound beam...

We review and emphasize the importance of gynecologic ultrasound scan for the preoperative evaluation of adnexal masses. Transvaginal ultrasound performed by a trained clinician has a good sensitivity and specificity for discriminating benign and malignant adnexal masses. In conjunction with a carefully obtained history, assessment of risk factors, a focused physical examination and serum markers, the information obtained by a gynecologic ultrasound evaluation can assist the clinician in the diagnosis and treatment of adnexal masses...

BACKGROUND: The pathophysiology of lymphedema is poorly understood. Current treatment options include compression therapy, resection, liposuction, and lymphatic microsurgery, but determining the optimal treatment approach for each patient remains challenging. OBJECTIVES: We characterized skin and adipose tissue alterations in the setting of secondary lymphedema. METHODS: Morphologic and histopathologic evaluations were conducted for 70 specimens collected from 26 female patients with lower extremity secondary lymphedema following surgical intervention for gynecologic cancers...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian torsion is a rare but serious cause of pelvic pain in females. Making the diagnosis is important because misdiagnosis can lead to an ischemic ovary and subsequent infertility. OBJECTIVE: Although all emergency physicians are aware of ovarian torsion, there are several myths regarding its epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment. This article attempts to review some of these myths to improve emergency diagnosis and evaluation. DISCUSSION: Ovarian torsion is not an easy diagnosis to make and it is commonly missed...

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate a step-by-step laparoscopic approach for excision of ovarian endometrioma following surgical principles for safety and maximal preservation of ovarian function. DESIGN: Video SETTING: Medical management of ovarian endometriomas is not recommended. Operative laparoscopic is the treatment of choice. Although considered a simple procedure, ovarian cystectomy requires precise and correct technique in order to preserve ovarian function. PATIENT: Asymptomatic, 27yo woman with ultrasound imaging suggesting a 6,2 x 5,4 cm left endometrioma...

PURPOSE: Successful adoption of a new surgical procedure varies among practicing surgeons, and skill acquisition depends on the surgeon's innate ability, the complexity of the technique, and training. We report intraoperative and near-term postoperative outcomes from the Acessa procedure conducted by minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons new to Acessa, and report the surgeons' experiences during the training period. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study was designed as a postmarket, prospective, single-arm, multicenter analysis of operative and early postoperative outcomes after proctored surgical training with the Acessa device and procedure (laparoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency volumetric thermal ablation of symptomatic fibroids) in premenopausal, menstruating women as conducted in community and university hospitals in the USA and Canada...

Foreign body in the bladder is a relatively rare case. We encountered two cases of foreign bodies in the bladder after gynecological surgery. Case 1 was a 72-year-old woman. When she was 70 years old,an operation for her pelvic organ prolapse was performed. She visited our hospital because of discomfort in urination. We performed a transurethral lithotripsy of the bladder stone and detected a foreign body,and it was an anchor used for the Tissue Fixation System(TFS)operation (a pelvic organ prolapse operation)...

OBJECTIVE: The rising number of breast cancer is the worldwide problem. The screening mammography is considered as the most effective method to decrease the mortality of the disease. For many years, the breast self-examination has been promoted as the simplest method for breast cancer development in women. In this review article, we provide the results of studies on the effectiveness of breast self-examination. DESIGN: Review article.

PURPOSE: Brachytherapy (BT) techniques for cervical cancer in Canada have changed over the last decade, with evolution to high-dose-rate and image-guided BT. However, there are currently no national data on the use of interstitial BT (IBT). The purpose of this study was to document IBT utilization in Canadian centers, as well as update details of cervical cancer BT practices. METHODS AND MATERIALS: All Canadian centers with gynecologic BT services (n = 33) were identified, and one gynecology radiation oncologist per center was sent a 33-item e-mail questionnaire regarding their center's practice for cervical cancer BT in 2015...

We were investigating the predictive value of RMI and ROMA indices in patients with ovarian tumors of uncertain dignity, in order to determine whether these methods are suitable for the early detection of ovarian malignancy. Our study included 162 patients treated at the Gynecological Department of the National Institute of Oncology (Budapest, Hungary). These patients were diagnosed with ovarian tumor of uncertain dignity, and were admitted to our Department with the purpose of gynecological surgery. Each of them had CA-125, HE4 blood tests and ultrasound scan in order to calculate RMI and ROMA indices and to study their effectiveness...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare fixation and mobility of adjustable single-incision (Ajust) and standard transobturator midurethral sling (TVT-O) tapes based on postoperative ultrasound monitoring of the position of the tape at rest and at maximal Valsava (tape descent). The hypothesis was that fixation of SIMS Ajust is comparable to that achieved by the standard transobturator midurethral sling.
