Ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS) is a rare condition, in which the ovarian tissue is inadvertently left behind after difficult oophorectomy. The most common preexisting conditions associated for this complication include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and prior abdominal surgery as in these conditions, removal of ovarian tissue becomes difficult. This is likely due to the presence of the dense fibrotic adhesions between an ovary and the surrounding structures. This residual ovarian tissue can become functional and cystic...

INTRODUCTION: Sacrectomy to treat malignant tumors is often results in large pelvic defects to require reconstruction, using a prosthetic mesh. Importance is to avoid its direct contact of mesh with intestine to prevent adhesion between them. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An 83-year old woman who was diagnosed with a mesh infection caused by a small bowel penetration 10 years after sacrectomy combined with mesh reconstruction for chordoma. In the first operation, because of incomplete re-peritonealization due to a large defect in the retroperitoneum, a mesh unavoidably was compelled to contact with the small intestine...

The main challenges of imaging for endometriosis are the detection of nonovarian disease and the evaluation of the extension of the disease into pelvic structures. Transvaginal ultrasonography (TVS) has been proposed as the first-line imaging technique because it allows extensive exploration of the pelvis. The "typical" endometrioma is a unilocular cyst with homogeneous low-level echogenicity (ground glass echogenicity) of the cyst fluid. The use of color Doppler helps avoid classifying malignancies as endometriomas, defining the presence of vascular flow in papillations...

INTRODUCTION: During Robotic-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy (RARP), the prostate may be approached extraperiteoneally (eRARP) or transperitoneally (tRARP). The former avoids the abdominal cavity which might be of benefit in patients who have had prior abdominal or pelvic surgery (PAPS). Our objective was to compare the outcomes of patients with PAPS undergoing either technique. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients treated with RARP from July 1, 2003-Dec. 31, 2014 with a minimum follow-up of 3 months was undertaken...

PURPOSE: When a patient's anatomy spans beyond the scan field of view (sFOV) in a CT scanner, extrapolation techniques are applied to reconstruct data in the extended field of view (eFOV). However, it's challenging to delineate the external body contour accurately due to image distortions within eFOV. Our proposed solution is to apply TargetTape, a disposable radio-opaque adhesive strip, to patients. Our study investigates the accuracy of geometric reconstruction and the dosimetric impact when using TargetTape in eFOV...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy has increasingly become the standard of care for patients who undergo colorectal surgery for both benign and malignant diseases. This growing experience has also resulted in more reports of postoperative complications from the minimally invasive approach to primary colorectal resection. Small bowel obstruction from internal hernias and pre-sacral adhesions is an uncommon but not negligible complication. However, there is little literature specific to this topic with recommendations for different methods to prevent it...

Intraperitoneal adhesion occurs frequently after pelvic and abdominal surgery, which plays an enormous burden on patients. Various drugs and barrier agents were studied and used to prevent adhesions, but few of them were satisfactory. A thermosensitive hydrogel was developed in our previous work and was effective in preventing adhesions. But in our preliminary experiment, it showed limited activity in a more rigorous rat repeated-injury adhesion model, which was much closer to clinical. In this study, tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) loaded thermosensitive hydrogel (tPA-hydrogel) was prepared, which combined barrier functions with sustained release of antiadhesion drug...

REVIEW
Jia-Fong Jhang, Hann-Chorng Kuo
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a heterogeneous syndrome which is usually characterized by urinary frequency, nocturia, and bladder pain. Several pathomechanisms have been proposed, including uroepithelial dysfunction, mast cell activation, neurogenic inflammation, autoimmunity, and occult urinary tract infections. It is possible that an inflammatory process alters regulation of urothelial homeostasis and results in dysfunction of the bladder epithelium. Different phenotypes of IC/BPS have been explored including Hunner and non-Hunner type IC, hypersensitive bladder, and bladder pain both with and without functional somatic syndrome...

Yan Zhang, Qin Liu, Ning Yang, Xuegang Zhang
Postsurgical adhesion formation is the most common complication in abdominal and pelvic surgery. Adhesiolysis is the most commonly applied treatment for adhesion formation but is often followed by adhesion reformation. Therefore, an efficient strategy should be adopted to solve these problems. This study aimed to explore whether hyaluronic acid and oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) could prevent adhesion formation and reformation. Thirty female Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups (n=10 each) and subjected to different treatments during the first and second surgery...

Endometriosis, defined as growth of the endometrial cells outside the uterus, is an inflammatory disorder that is associated with chronic pelvic pain and infertility in women of childbearing age. Although the estrogen-dependence of endometriosis is well known, the role of progesterone in development of this disease remains poorly understood. In this study, we developed a disease model in which endometriosis was induced in the peritoneal cavities of immunocompetent female mice, and maintained with exogenous estrogen...
