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...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Disorders of micturition result from a wide variety of conditions and evaluation often involves multiple diagnostic modalities. However, the sensitivity and specificity of these techniques are highly variable and may not always yield a diagnosis. Novel imaging techniques such as ultrasound shear wave elastography may help to improve diagnostic accuracy. METHODS: Continent women were recruited from outpatient gynecology offices from a tertiary medical system...

Purpose To translate into Portuguese, culturally adapt and validate the Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life (UFS-QoL) questionnaire for Brazilian women with uterine leiomyoma. Methods Initially, the UFS-QoL questionnaire was translated into Brazilian Portuguese in accordance with international standards, with subsequent cultural, structural, conceptual and semantic adaptations, so that patients were able to properly answer the questionnaire. Fifty patients with uterine leiomyoma and 19 patients without the disease, confirmed by abdominal pelvic examination and/or transvaginal ultrasound, were selected at the outpatient clinics of the Department of Gynecology of the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (Unifesp)...

Introduction. The identification of biological markers that indicate an increased risk for the development or recurrence of endometrial cancer (EC) in obese women might be useful for decreasing EC mortality and morbidity. Glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) is a major protein of the endoplasmic reticulum expressed in all normal cells. Overexpression of GRP78 has been reported to be a tumoral biomarker. Increased detection of GRP78 is positively correlated with the tumoral stage and prognosis. This study aimed to identify a correlation between intraperitoneal fat, plasma GRP78 levels, and EC...

REVIEW
Margit Dueholm, Ina Marie D Hjorth
: The aim in the diagnosis of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is to identify the bleeding cause, which can be classified by the PALM-COEIN (Polyp, Adenomyosis, Leiomyoma, Malignancy (and hyperplasia), Coagulopathy, Ovulatory disorders, Endometrial, Iatrogenic and Not otherwise classified) classification system. In a gynecologic setting, the first step is most often to identify structural abnormalities (PALM causes). Common diagnostic options for the identification of the PALM include ultrasonography, endometrial sampling, and hysteroscopy...

Ultrasound plays a fundamental role in the management of elective abortions. Although it can improve the quality of post-abortion care, it must not be an obstacle to abortion access. We thus studied the role of ultrasound in pregnancy dating and possible alternatives and analyzed the literature to determine the role of ultrasound in post-abortion follow-up. During an ultrasound scan, the date of conception is estimated by measurement of the crown-rump length (CRL), defined by Robinson, or of the biparietal diameter (BPD), as defined by the French Center for Fetal Ultrasound (CFEF) after 11 weeks of gestation (Robinson and CFEF curves) (grade B)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinically relevant findings detected by the first trimester ultrasound (FTU) and to determine the additional value of the FTU compared to cell free DNA (cfDNA) alone. METHOD: Retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing a FTU at a maternal-fetal medicine referral practice. Fetal, gynecologic, and placental findings detected by ultrasound were analyzed with available cfDNA and diagnostic testing results. A subgroup analysis of positive ultrasound findings and cfDNA results was performed to assess the additional benefit of ultrasound evaluation in FT prenatal screening...

Two 54-year-old women developed abdominal cramps and vaginal hemorrhage as a result of endometrial hyperplasia during treatment with a hop-containing phytotherapeutic product (MenoCool(®)) for post-menopausal complaints. The women used the hop-containing phytotherapeutic product (418 mg of hop per tablet) twice daily (1 and 0.5 tablets by both patient A and B). Patient A developed abdominal cramps and vaginal hemorrhage after 2 months of use. After gynecological examination, she was diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia...

BACKGROUND: Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block has been used to provide intra- and post-operative analgesia with single incision laparoscopic (SIL) bariatric and gynecological surgery with mixed results. Its efficacy in providing analgesia for SIL cholecystectomy (SILC) via the same approach remains unexplored. AIMS: The primary objective of our study was to compare the efficacy of bilateral TAP block with local anesthetic infiltration for perioperative analgesia in patients undergoing SILC...

Introduction Serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma (STIC) is most likely precursor lesion of the most part of high-grade serous pelvis carcinomas, carcinosarcoma and undifferentiated carcinoma with incidence of 0.6% to 7% in BRCA carriers or women with strong family history of breast or ovarian carcinoma. STIC is a pathomorphologically and immunohistochemically detectable lesion which biological significance and clinical relevance is unknown. Areas covered We investigate methods of STIC diagnostics and we present an overview of recent studies and available knowledge on surgical management, adjuvant chemotherapy and subsequent follow-up procedure in women with an isolated STIC...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Despite the fact that most cases of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) in adolescence are due to an immature hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis (HPO), the current approach to investigating adolescents presenting with AUB often includes pelvic ultrasound to exclude rare structural causes. The aim of this study was to determine whether an ultrasound ordered for the investigation of AUB in adolescents detects any significant anatomic pathology or alters diagnosis and management...

OBJECTIVE: Among pelvitrochanteric muscles, the internal obturator muscle is implicated in some pain projected at the buttock or perineum. Even though the pathophysiology is not completely understood, its responsibility is often held in clinical practice and in the literature due to effectiveness of botulinum toxin injections, constituting a therapeutic test. The objective is to enhance the couple ultrasound/EMG in difficult injections. MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighteen patients were treated in the physical medicine department (Besançon) from September 2015 to February 2016 for gluteal or perineal pain suspected to be related to abnormal spasm of the internal obturator muscle...
