Uterine fibroids are benign uterine tumors. In women during the reproductive period, uterine fibroids occur in about 25%, whereas after this time, they are observed in more than 40% of women. In the majority of women (about 20-50%), such tumors do not cause discomfort and do not require treatment. Asymptomatic uterine fibroids usually undergo only regular medical control, whereas symptomatic fibroids are an indication for treatment. Current treatment methods include surgical, pharmacological and minimally invasive treatment...

Percutaneous vascular embolization plays an important role in the management of various gynecologic and obstetric abnormalities. Transcatheter embolization is a minimally invasive alternative procedure to surgery with reduced morbidity and mortality, and preserves the patient's future fertility potential. The clinical indications for transcatheter embolization are much broader and include many benign gynecologic conditions, such as fibroid, adenomyosis, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), as well as intractable bleeding due to inoperable advanced-stage malignancies...

REVIEW
Katherine Smith, Aileen Caceres
Hysterectomy is one of the most common surgeries performed each year and can be indicated for many gynecologic conditions. The development of minimally invasive surgery has transformed this procedure, resulting in improved outcomes, superior cosmesis, and quicker return to normal function. Vaginal cuff closure is a critical component of hysterectomy, with many variations in surgical technique and materials. This review provides an overview of intracorporeal suturing and knot-tying techniques at the level of a junior resident in obstetrics and gynecology and describes several validated models that have been developed to test resident skill level in vaginal cuff closure...

OBJECTIVE: Recent evidence has supported the concept that epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) arises from the cells of the fallopian tube or endometrium. This study investigated current practice in Japan with respect to performing opportunistic bilateral salpingectomy (OBS) during gynecological surgery for benign disease for Ovarian Cancer Prevention. METHODS: We mailed a questionnaire to 767 hospitals and clinics, comprising 628 accredited training institutions of the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG), Japan Society of Gynecologic Oncology (JSGO), or Japan Society of Gynecologic and Obstetric Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy (JSGOE) and 139 private institutions with at least one JSGOE-certified licensed gynecologic laparoscopist...

Biosurgical materials (biosurgicals) have a wide array of uses for providing hemostasis, including decreasing the risk of postoperative bleeding and, intraoperatively, controling bleeding. These materials are especially useful in situations where electrocautery, sutures, or clips are not feasible. Biosurgicals have long been used in general surgery and surgical subspecialties to provide hemostasis; however, they still are not commonly used during obstetric and gynecologic procedures. Three commonly used classes of biosurgicals will be discussed in this article: oxidized regenerated cellulose, flowables, fibrin sealants, and fibrin sealant patches...

AIM: Radical trachelectomy (RT) is a widely used fertility-sparing treatment for patients with early cervical cancer (CCA). RT, however, is an investigational treatment, and its gynecological and obstetric efficacy are being investigated. We retrospectively assessed the efficacy of abdominal RT (ART) as a fertility-sparing surgery. METHODS: From 2010 to 2014, patients with stage IA2-IB1 CCA (tumor ≤2 cm) who wished to preserve their fertility underwent ART. The major outcomes were mortality, recurrence, pregnancy complications, and obstetric outcome...

IMPORTANCE: Obstetricians and gynecologists frequently deal with hemorrhage so they should be familiar with management of patients who refuse blood transfusion. Although there are some reports in the literature about management of Jehovah's Witness patients in obstetrics and gynecology, most of them are case reports, and a comprehensive review about these patients including ethicolegal perspective is lacking. OBJECTIVE: This review outlines the medical, ethical, and legal implications of management of Jehovah's Witness patients in obstetrical and gynecological settings...

OBJECTIVES: Vulvar carcinoma is mainly treated surgically and has an overall good prognosis. Despite the development of minimally invasive surgical procedures in recent years, morbidity remains significant. The aim of the study was to determine the incidence and risk factors of erysipelas after surgical treatment for vulvar carcinoma. METHODS: This retrospective observational study was performed within the Comprehensive Cancer Centre South. The study included patients (N = 116) who underwent surgery for primary vulvar carcinoma between 2005 and 2012...

AIM: This study investigates the pattern of disease recurrence and identifies the clinicopathologic prognostic factors for patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage IB and IIA cervical carcinoma treated with laparoscopic/robotic radical hysterectomy (LRH/RRH). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 128 patients with FIGO stage IB and IIA cervical cancer. Preoperative examination did not uncover definitive evidence of parametrial invasion or lymph node metastasis in any of the patients; therefore, all patients underwent LRH/RRH with retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy between April 2006 and December 2013...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the perceptions of fellowship program directors of incoming clinical fellows for subspecialty training. METHODS: A validated survey by the American College of Surgeons was modified and distributed to all fellowship program directors in four subspecialties within obstetrics and gynecology: female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, gynecologic oncology, maternal-fetal medicine, and reproductive endocrinology-infertility. The 59-item survey explored five domains concerning preparedness for fellowship: professionalism, independent practice, psychomotor ability, clinical evaluation, and academic scholarship...

INTRODUCTION: The goal of this study was to assess the effect of the addition of fellowship-trained faculty in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery to a community-based obstetrics and gynecology resident training program in an inner-city location. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted from August 1, 2011, through August 25, 2014, to extract surgical cases covered by gynecology residents in an inner-city community teaching hospital. This includes total and supracervical hysterectomies performed through laparotomy and laparoscopy...
