Objectives Retirement of "baby boomer" physicians is a matter of growing concern in light of the shortage of certain physician groups. The objectives of this investigation were to define what constitutes a customary retirement age range of maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) physicians and examine how that compares with other obstetrician-gynecologist (ob-gyn) specialists. Study Design This descriptive study was based on American Medical Association Masterfile survey data from 2010 to 2014. Data from the National Provider Identifier were used to correct for upward bias in reporting retirement ages...

Hair shedding in female patients is a frequent complaint in dermatological, endocrinological, and gynecological consults. Previously, the Sinclair Hair Shedding Scale was developed to assess normal versus excessive hair shedding in female pattern hair loss (FPHL) subjects. However, the prevalence of hair shedding in females not suffering from FPHL is unknown. To gain better understanding of hair shedding in the general population, we recruited 300 subjects visiting a public hospital for conditions other than alopecia...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the use of mobile technology to facilitate resident learning, assess clinical knowledge, and guide curricular development in a busy clinical environment. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in a large (N=48) urban obstetrics and gynecology residency program. Question sets were created in the following areas: office gynecology, general obstetrics, gynecologic surgery and urogynecology, maternal-fetal medicine and ultrasonography, reproductive endocrinology and pediatric gynecology, and gynecologic oncology...

OBJECTIVE: Corifollitropin alfa is a good choice for assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles because fewer injections are needed than with other agents. In this retrospective cohort, we analyzed luteal injected half-dose depot gonadotropin hormone-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist cycles in women who received corifollitropin alfa and those who underwent a conventional corifollitropin alfa cycle with a GnRH antagonist. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort, we analyzed luteal injected half-dose depot GnRH agonist cycles in women who received corifollitropin alfa and those who underwent a conventional corifollitropin alfa cycle with a GnRH antagonist at the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and IVF Unit, Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, Başkent University School of Medicine, Adana, Turkey, from March 2014 to August 2015...

CONTEXT: in a cohort of 95 women with multiple breast fibroadenomas (MFA), we recently identified patients harboring germline heterozygous variants of the prolactin receptor (PRLR) exhibiting constitutive activity (PRLRI146L and PRLRI176V). OBJECTIVE: to better delineate the potential role of PRLR gain-of-function variants in benign and malignant mammary tumorigenesis Design: observational study and transgenic mouse model analysis Setting: Department of Endocrinology, Reproductive Disorders and Rare Gynecologic Diseases, Pitié Salpêtrière, Paris, and Inserm Unit 1151, Paris Patients or Other Participants: we generated a second MFA cohort (n=71) as well as a group of control subjects (n=496) and a cohort of women with breast cancer (BC, n=119)...

The aim of this study was to utilize various insulin resistance measuring methods to determine whether insulin resistance and other parameters impact the serum lipid levels of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients and how the serum lipid levels in these patients are affected by the body mass index (BMI). Our dataset included patients between the ages of 16 and 42 (N = 228) from the outpatient endocrinology clinic of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, who demonstrated increased hair growth and bleeding disorders and came for a routine oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)...

Eating disorders are life-threatening conditions that disproportionately affect females, often during childbearing years. Although the endocrinological and reproductive sequelae of these conditions often fall within the treatment purview of obstetrician-gynecologists, assessment of eating pathology is challenging and often not part of routine clinical care. This commentary focuses on one of the common presenting symptoms of eating disorders in women, menstrual dysfunction, and discusses considerations for its clinical management in gynecology...

We report our experience with coaxial robot-assisted laparoendoscopic single-site (RA-LESS) myomectomy, including a detailed description of the technique and outcomes from our first 21 cases. This was a retrospective cohort study carried out at the reproductive endocrinology and gynecologic oncology divisions at two academic medical centers. RA-LESS myomectomy was performed with the da Vinci Si Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) employing standard rigid 8 or 5 mm instrumentation in a coaxial arrangement through a standard laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) port (GelPOINT Advanced Access Platform, Applied Medical, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, USA)...

BACKGROUND: Primary amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea and secondary amenorrhea are diagnosed commonly during adolescence. Weight aberrations are associated with menstrual disorders. Autoimmune thyroiditis is frequent during adolescence. In this study, the commonest clinical and hormonal characteristics of amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea during adolescence were investigated. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, one hundred and thirty-eight consecutive young patients presenting with amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea referred to an adolescent endocrinology and gynecology university clinic were studied...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is known as a common gynecologic and endocrinology disease with multiple short and long-term consequences. It is one of the most common causes for hyperandrogenism and anovulation, increases the risk for metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Its etiology remains unclear. PCOS is thought to be the result of the interaction between predisposing genetic variants with environmental factors and strongly depends on ethnicity. Proteomics allows the study of several hundreds or thousands of proteins in order to reveal physiological state of a tissue or an organ at the molecular level and to identify disease-specific biomarkers...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate patients' communication with their gynecologists in the first visit of the gynecological endocrinology outpatient clinics. STUDY DESIGN: We developed a questionnaire to evaluate 379 women' expectations of their first visit, information-giving about illness, and understanding of the consultation they encountered from April to August 2010. Descriptive statistics and multiple linear regression analysis were used to analyze the data. RESULTS: Before the first visit, 55% (208/379) of participants hoped to get the doctors' special attention, and 60% (227/379) of patients expected a very satisfying consultation...

INTRODUCTION: Autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) with elevated anti-thyroid peroxidase antibody (aTPO) levels appears in 12-25% of all women, apart from thyroid dysfunction. High titers of aTPO are more common in women with polycystic ovary syndrome and endometriosis. Elevated aTPO has been associated with infertility and poorer quality of life among euthyroid women, and may be related to other factors. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to measure differences in serum leptin concentration between AITD+ and AITD- patients...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To create a family tree to chronicle the proliferation of our specialty through fellowships (formal and informal) within the pediatric and adolescent gynecology practice and among the membership of the North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG). This historical project was undertaken as a way to demonstrate NASPAG's rich sense of heritage and community. The tree is meant to be a dynamic project, a living document, changing and expanding as this field of medicine grows, and offers a form of institutional memory for NASPAG...

STUDY QUESTION: Does an association exist between high normal numbers of CGG trinucleotide repeats on the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene and diminished ovarian reserve (DOR)? SUMMARY ANSWER: This large data set demonstrated that a high normal number of CGG repeats (35-54 repeats) on the FMR1 gene was not significantly correlated with DOR. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: The FMR1 premutation (55-200 repeats) is a known cause of primary ovarian insufficiency...
