INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of subsequent pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair in women following radical hysterectomy versus total abdominal hysterectomy. METHODS: From the Danish National Patient Registry, we collected data on all radical hysterectomies, all total abdominal hysterectomies, and all POP operations performed in Denmark from 1 January 1977 to 31 December 2009. We excluded patients with prior POP repair, POP diagnosis, or concomitant POP repair at hysterectomy...

BACKGROUND: It is estimated that upwards of 50,000 individuals suffer traumatic fracture of the spine each year, and the instability of the fractured vertebra and/or the local deformity results in pain and, if kyphosis increases, neurological impairment can occur. There is a significant controversy over the ideal management. The purpose of the study is to present clinical and radiographic results of pedicle subtraction osteotomy and disc resection with cage placement in correcting post-traumatic thoracolumbar kyphosis...

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...

OBJECTIVES: Infected pelvic hematoma is a relatively common complication of vaginal hysterectomy, manifesting with postoperative pain and fever which often necessitate surgical drainage. We aimed to assess the effect of the surgical technique for vaginal cuff closure on the incidence of this complication. STUDY DESIGN: Until March 31, 2010, our surgical protocol for vaginal hysterectomy included complete vaginal cuff closure. After this date, all surgeries were performed using another technique, by which a patent tract was left at the vaginal cuff for drainage of blood, secretions and debris...

As far as is known, this paper gives the first description of a two-headed shark embryo belonging to an oviparous species, Galeus atlanticus (Carcharhiniformes: Scyliorhinidae). The specimen was detected among 797 embryos intended for cardiovascular studies, which represents a defect incidence of 0·13%. Each head had a mouth, two eyes, a brain, a notochord and five gill openings on each side. The two heads fused behind the gills. On the single body, there were four anticipated dorsal fins, two anterior, right and left and two posterior, right and left...

CONTEXT: The incidence and awareness of postprostatectomy incontinence (PPI) has increased during the past few years, probably because of an increase in prostate cancer surgery. Many theories have been postulated to explain the pathophysiology of PPI. OBJECTIVE: The current review scrutinizes various pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the occurrence of PPI. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A search was conducted on PubMed and EMBASE for publications on PPI...

Adenosarcomas are rare malignancies of the female genital tract, accounting for approximately 5 % of uterine sarcomas. Occasionally, adenosarcoma occurs in the ovaries or in extra-uterine tissue, which may be related to endometriosis. These tumors are characterized by benign epithelial elements and a malignant mesenchymal component. Pathologic diagnosis is dependent on the identification of the characteristic morphologic features. The most common immunohistochemical markers for adenosarcoma are CD10 and WT1, but these are not specific...

BACKGROUND: Recently, a grayscale inversion view was reported to improve intra- and inter-observer reliabilities in measuring coronal curvature with Cobb and pedicle methods in scoliosis patients. However, the grayscale transformation has never been applied to the measurements of spinopelvic parameters. The purpose of this study was to compare the measurement reliabilities of the spinoplevic sagittal parameters between the 'Standard View' and the 'Grayscale Inversion View' in normal adult populations...

OBJECTIVE: Ovarian cancer is the most lethal cancer involving the female pelvic reproductive system. Its incidence increases with age and with an aging population, its prevalence should also increase. The goal of our retrospective study is to report our experience in treating women over 65 years of age, with a diagnosis of primary ovarian cancer, using standard intravenous chemotherapy. METHODS: The medical records of 78 patients>65 years of age diagnosed with primary ovarian cancer at the Yale Cancer Center between 1996-2006 were retrospectively reviewed and included in our analysis...

During the 6-year surveillance period, a total of 56,935 incident diagnoses of osteoarthritis (OA) and 60,968 incident diagnoses of spondylosis were identified. Age-specific rates of OA and spondylosis increased markedly with age and were higher among Army members and those in armor/motor transport occupations, compared to their respective counterparts. Among service members aged 25 years or older, the rate of OA overall was higher among black, non-Hispanic than other race/ethnicity group members, and the rate of shoulder OA was higher among males than females...

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and more specifically salpingitis (visually confirmed inflammation) is the primary cause of tubal factor infertility and is an important risk factor for ectopic pregnancy. The risk of these outcomes increases following repeated episodes of PID. We developed a homogenous discrete-time Markov model for the distribution of PID history in the UK. We used a Bayesian framework to fully propagate parameter uncertainty into the model outputs. We estimated the model parameters from routine data, prospective studies, and other sources...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There is a paucity of data evaluating the risk of de novo stress urinary incontinence (SUI) after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women with no preoperative occult SUI. We hypothesized that apical suspension procedures would have higher rates of de novo SUI. METHODS: This was a retrospective database review of women who had surgery for POP from 2003 to 2013 and developed de novo SUI at ≥6 months postoperatively. Preoperatively, all patients had a negative stress test and no evidence of occult SUI on prolapse reduction urodynamics...

This is a national retrospective study realized by the Study Group of Scoliosis (GES) with the support of 7 competence centers about the follow up of the spine for patients with Marfan's disease. The sample consists of 167 patients: 99 women and 67 men. It is composed of children and adults and the mean age is 31 years. In this sample, we find 72% of spine deformity (scoliosis and kyphosis): in the literature, 63% for Sponseller and al, (JBJSa 1995), and 56% for Garreau and al, (JBJS, 2006). The discovery of the spine problem is effective of 12,8 years old (ET=4,2; range=1-53)...
