OBJECTIVE: Despite growing endovascular experience within the vascular surgery community, some catheter-based interventions - such as uterine artery embolization (UAE) - remain outside the clinical scope of most vascular surgeons, owing in part to established referral patterns and limited awareness among referring colleagues. We present our experience with a vascular surgery-based, multidisciplinary UAE program at an academic tertiary referral center. METHODS: In a collaborative effort between vascular surgery and gynecology, a Pelvic Vascular Disease Program has been established to provide palliative, prophylactic, and therapeutic embolizations including, but not limited to, UAE...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of pediatric metabolic syndrome (MS) has progressively increased. The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has also increased. Thus, some children and adolescents with T1DM exhibit MS parameters. The aim of the study was to evaluate the presence of MS parameters in female adolescents with T1DM based on their nutritional status. METHODS: We evaluated 44 adolescents with T1DM (consecutive non-randomized sample) aged between 14 and 18 years, who were on intensive therapy with insulin...

Cancer of the endometrium is the most common type of gynecologic cancer in the United States. Vaginal bleeding is the presenting sign in more than 90% of postmenopausal women with endometrial carcinoma. Clinical risk factors for endometrial cancer, including but not limited to age, obesity, use of unopposed estrogen, specific medical comorbidities (eg, polycystic ovary syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus, atypical glandular cells on screening cervical cytology), and family history of gynecologic malignancy also should be considered when evaluating postmenopausal bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Impaired healing of the uterine scar after cesarean has been associated with adverse gynecological and obstetric outcomes. Although a large number of studies have been conducted on the events leading to this, information obtained from prospective randomized studies examining the role of suture material in the formation of cesarean scar defect (CSD) is lacking. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of synthetic suture materials on CSD formation. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a two-arm 1:1 randomized study in women with singleton pregnancies undergoing elective primary cesarean delivery after the 38th week of gestation...

Objective: Endometriosis is seen in women during their reproductive period, where stromal tissue and functional endometrial glands of the uterus are observed outside the uterine cavity. In this study, we aimed to identify the clinical characteristics of our patients who underwent surgery with scar endometriosis and to discuss the surgical results in light of the literature. Materials and Methods: A total of 24 patients who underwent surgery and diagnosed as having endometriosis as the result of a pathologic examination were retrospectively evaluated...

Introduction: Liquid-based cytology (LBC), initially developed for screening gynecologic specimens, is now being used in nongynecologic aspiration and exfoliative specimens. In this study, the diagnostic yield and utility of thin-prep (TP) was compared with conventional preparations to ascertain its utility in improving the diagnosis of respiratory lesions. Materials and Methods: Bronchial washings (BW) and transbronchial needle aspirates (TBNA) (bronchoscopy/endobronchial ultrasound-guided) from 70 consecutive patients of mediastinal masses and endo/peribronchial growths were included...

Context: Optimization and providing excellent quality of postoperative analgesia after total abdominal hysterectomy is a determinant factor of better clinical outcome, increases patient satisfaction, and allows early mobilization of the patient. Aims: The aim of this study is to compare the postoperative analgesic efficacy of wound site infiltration (WSI) and ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane block (TAPB) with 0.5% ropivacaine in lower abdominal surgeries under spinal anesthesia...

INTRODUCTION: Many uncommon obstetric and gynecologic problems associated with pregnancy and the early postpartum period can lead to severe abdominal pain and be life-threatening. The patient will be in urgent need of a quick and accurate decision. The means of management will depend on the ability to differentiate between these problems to achieve an optimal diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 30 pregnant females attended a private obstetric ultrasound clinic with clinical picture of acute abdomen with pregnancy...

Margaret Allard, Joshua Shubert, Muyinatu A Lediju Bell
Hysterectomies (i.e., surgical removal of the uterus) are the prevailing solution to treat medical conditions such as uterine cancer, endometriosis, and uterine prolapse. One complication of hysterectomies is accidental injury to the ureters located within millimeters of the uterine arteries that are severed and cauterized to hinder blood flow and enable full uterus removal. This work explores the feasibility of using photoacoustic imaging to visualize the uterine arteries (and potentially the ureter) when this imaging method is uniquely combined with a da Vinci® surgical robot that enables teleoperated hysterectomies...

Uterine fibroids are benign uterine tumors. In women during the reproductive period, uterine fibroids occur in about 25%, whereas after this time, they are observed in more than 40% of women. In the majority of women (about 20-50%), such tumors do not cause discomfort and do not require treatment. Asymptomatic uterine fibroids usually undergo only regular medical control, whereas symptomatic fibroids are an indication for treatment. Current treatment methods include surgical, pharmacological and minimally invasive treatment...
