OBJECTIVES: There are no current established pathognomonic diagnostic features for uterine leiomyosarcomas in the pre- or perioperative setting. Recent inadvertent upstaging of this rare malignancy during laparoscopic morcellation of a presumed fibroid has prompted widespread debate among clinicians regarding the safety of current surgical techniques for management of fibroids. This study aims to conduct a systematic review investigating significant diagnostic features in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of uterine leiomyosarcomas...

INTRODUCTION: When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initially reported on the parlous incidence (0.28%) of occult malignancy identified following uterine power morcellation, investigations thereafter documented their particular experience with this surgical procedure. Nevertheless, the risk of identifying a sarcoma following uterine morcellation remains indeterminate, primarily due to varying study patient risk factors, diagnostic criteria and operative approach. METHOD: We retrospectively evaluated subjects who underwent an endoscopic hysterectomy and uterine power morcellation for the treatment of a presumptive, benign indication from January 2006 until December 2015...

AIM: The aim of this study was to analyse our data of laparoscopic hysterectomy for large uteri (>16 weeks size) regarding their perioperative outcomes and possible factors for conversions to open surgery over 5 years. It also describes our techniques for the feasibility of performing such hysterectomies by the minimally invasive way. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A five-year retrospective chart review was performed at the Minimal Access and Robotic Surgery Unit of the Department of Gynecology at Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad...

Objective: This study introduces and evaluates the feasibility, safety, and surgical outcomes of the in-bag power morcellation technique during single-port assisted (SPA) laparoscopic myomectomy in comparison with manual scalpel morcellation. Methods: This is a retrospective review of a total of 58 patients who underwent SPA laparoscopic myomectomy employing in-bag power morcellation (n=27) or manual scalpel morcellation (n=31), performed between December 2014 and December 2016...

Background and Objectives: After the U. S. Food and Drug Administration's recommendation against the use of power morcellation for tissue extraction in minimally invasive hysterectomy, the number of procedures completed laparoscopically declined in favor of open surgery laparotomy. We conducted a retrospective cohort study comparing perioperative and long-term outcomes, including complications associated with laparoscopic hysterectomy before and after the FDA recommendation. Methods: We included procedures performed in Danish government hospitals (GHs) and a hospital specializing in minimally invasive gynecological surgery (MIGS)...

A 45-year-old multipara woman was referred due to the rapid enlargement of an asymptomatic pelvic mass that was detected during a regular check up. She had undergone laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy 15 years previously. At the time, the uncontained extraction of an intraligamental myoma with electric power morcellation had been performed. Multimodal imaging revealed a heterogeneous mass in the vesicouterine pouch that was found to be supplied by the left gastro-omental and superior vesical arteries. Although malignancy could not be completely denied, parasitic peritoneal myoma with myxoid degeneration was the most probable diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Primary idiopathic intracranial hypertension (PIIH) in children is rare and has a poorly understood pathophysiology. It is characterized by raised intracranial pressure (ICP) in the absence of an identified brain lesion. Diagnosis is usually confirmed by the measurement of a high cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) opening pressure and exclusion of secondary causes of intracranial hypertension. Refractory PIIH may lead to severe visual impairment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a cranial morcellation decompression (CMD) technique as a new surgical alternative to stabilize intracranial pressure in PIIH...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the surgical outcomes of single port access laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (LSH) using in-bag manual morcellation and evaluate the feasibility of this procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty patients with symptomatic leiomyoma or adenomyosis were enrolled. A 2-cm transverse incision was made at the umbilicus and single port apparatus (LagiPort) was applied. After dissection of vesicouterine peritoneum from the uterus, the uterine ligaments and vessels were secured and transected by Gyrus PK cutting forceps...

A 35-year-old woman presented with an abdominal mass found incidentally on an ultrasound scan. On examination, the uterus was mobile and 14 weeks in size. Further imaging showed a large subserosal pedunculated fibroid, and she was counselled for laparoscopic myomectomy, morcellation in a bag, kept in open view. Intraoperatively, the mass was noted to be arising from the right ovarian ligament instead of the uterus, and decision was made to convert to open surgery. This case highlights important issues of consent-taking preoperatively and critical points to note regarding change in operative consent intraoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic enucleation of the prostate (EEP) has been recognized as a viable, treatment modality for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The aim of our study was to compare the efficacy and functional outcomes of three different techniques of EEP including monopolar enucleation (MEP), holmium (HoLEP) and thulium laser enucleation (ThuLEP). METHODS: The study consisted of a retrospective comparison of pre- and postoperative parameters in men undergoing three types of EEP: MEP, HoLEP, and ThuLEP...

REVIEW
Claire F Friedman, Martee L Hensley
Uterine leiomyosarcoma (uLMS) is a rare disease; in the data from the SEER database, 3165 cases of uLMS were diagnosed between January 2000 and December 2012. While a majority of patients (60%) are diagnosed with early stage disease, recurrence rates are high. Five-year disease-specific survival is 76% for patients with FIGO stage I and 60% for patients with FIGO stage II disease. Adjuvant treatments, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and combined modality approaches, have been explored with the goal of demonstrating improved survival...

Background and Objectives: Uterine fibroids are a common indication for laparoscopy. Unsuspected sarcoma can pose a serious risk if morcellation is used in the procedure. We sought to determine the clinical factors associated with uterine sarcoma compared with uterine fibroids. Methods: We conducted a case-control study of 66 women who had hysterectomy for uterine sarcoma from April 1, 2007, to March 31, 2014. Sixty-six patients who had hysterectomy for fibroids were randomly selected as controls...

BACKGROUND: Live surgery remains controversial. Although it may improve surgical training and accelerate the dissemination of technical steps of surgical procedures, controversy exists regarding patient safety in live surgery. OBJECTIVE: To compare the perioperative outcomes of "en bloc" green laser enucleation of the prostate (GreenLEP) performed in workshops during live case demonstration (LCD) and in standard conditions (SCs). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Between June 2015 and January 2017, all consecutive patients who underwent GreenLEP for benign prostatic obstruction performed by a single surgeon were prospectively enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Intrauterine hysteroscopic morcellators have been studied as an alternative method for removing submucosal leiomyomas. AIMS: To assess the long-term efficacy of hysteroscopic morcellation of submucosal leiomyomas in women with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study including all women with AUB who underwent a hysteroscopic resection with mechanical morcellation of a benign submucosal leiomyoma confirmed at histopathology...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Morcellation of uteri with unsuspected malignancies has been the focus of reports for decades. More intensive evaluation of clinical outcomes and evaluation of impact of changes in practice has occurred since the release of FDA statement advising against the use of power morcellators. The review summarizes some of the most relevant publications on this topic. RECENT FINDINGS: The Society of Gynecologic Oncology and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists concur that symptomatic women should undergo appropriate evaluation, morcellation should not be performed whenever malignancy is suspected or diagnosed, and acknowledge the limitations of diagnostic testing currently available to detect leiomyosarcoma...
