We report a case of urinary bladder perforation during colonoscopy. A 67-year-old female, who had undergone a transabdominal hysterectomy for uterine myomas 15 years ago, visited the emergency department with complaint of abdominal pain after a screening colonoscopy. Laparoscopic examination revealed severe adhesion between the sigmoid colon and the urinary bladder. The urinary bladder wall was weakened, and several perforation sites were found. The surgery was converted to a laparotomy. After a thorough examination, we performed primary repair for the perforation sites, followed by an omentopexy...

INTRODUCTION: Although rare, cases of abdominal sarcomatosis (AS) after laparotomy/laparoscopic interventions for uterine smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) have been reported. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We describe a rare case of diffuse abdominal sarcomatosis in a patient that some year earlier had undergone myomectomy for a suspected uterine myoma, which was histologically proven to be a STUMP. Once the patient was admitted at our Department, she underwent a diagnostic laparoscopy that confirmed a condition of peritoneal sarcomatosis disseminated through the entire abdomen, and then a laparotomic total hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and total omentectomy, achieving a complete cytoreduction...

Gynecologic emergencies include various diseases that result from adnexal and uterine disorders. Adnexal disorders may be classified into the following three categories: (a) disorders that cause hemorrhage (hemorrhagic ovarian cysts and ectopic pregnancies); (b) disorders related to adnexal tumors (adnexal torsion and rupture of ovarian tumors); and (c) disorders related to pelvic inflammatory disease, such as tubo-ovarian abscesses. Unusual adnexal torsion, such as massive ovarian edema, isolated fallopian tube torsion, and paraovarian cyst torsion, has also been described...

Patients affected by the presence of leiomyomas may incur a substantial physical, emotional, social and financial toll as well as losses in their quality of life. Although many myomas are not amenable to medical therapy or hysteroscopic resection, many others are amenable to minimally invasive surgical approaches. In patients who prefer to retain their fertility, laparoscopic myomectomy should be considered the intervention of choice. In this review we expand on the surgical techniques of both conventional laparoscopic and robotic-assisted myomectomies...

Adenomyosis is a benign invasion of endometrium into the myometrium. It produces a diffusely enlarged uterus and predominantly affects women in the late reproductive age. It has recently been associated with a negative impact on female fertility. Diagnosis is challenging because nonspecific symptoms can be present. However, it is asymptomatic in the majority of women. Medical treatment with GnRH agonist seems to be promising, particularly in subfertile women. A retrospective study was performed (182 patients) by examination of histopathological results with "adenomyosis" between January/2013 and September/2016...

Hereditary leiomyomatosis renal cell cancer syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by uterine and cutaneous leiomyomas and increased predisposition to renal cell carcinoma, papillary type II. The syndrome is caused by heterozygous mutations to the fumarate hydratase (FH) gene located on chromosome 1. Affected females generally present with early onset, atypical uterine leiomyomas and cutaneous findings, however, delays in diagnosis are very common in patients with isolated uterine findings...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between intramural myomas and fertility remains unclear. The main debate rests on whether cavity-distorting intramural myomas (CDMs) adversely affect fertility more than non-CDMs. We aimed to compare the effects of enucleating non-CDMs and CDMs on fertility improvement in females with unexplained infertility. METHODS: We prospectively recruited 83 women undergoing myomectomy for unexplained infertility with intramural myomas between June 2008 and November 2012 and classified them into non-CDMs group (n = 45) and CDMs group (n = 38)...

Uterine leiomyomas, also called uterine fibroids or myomas, represent one of the most common benign tumour types in women of a fertile age. Leiomyomas arise due to transformation of the layer of smooth muscle cells of corpus uteri - the myometrium. Despite frequent occurrence of this disease, the molecular mechanisms behind the origin and development of leiomyomas are still relatively unknown. Most predisposed are obese women and women of African origin. In more than half of cases, leiomyomas remain asymptomatic...
