PURPOSE: There is significant discussion and uncertainty about the optimal management of symptomatic uterine leiomyomas (SULs). Nonsurgical procedures such as uterine artery embolization (UAE) have been developed. The goal of this study was to conduct a meta-analysis and an indirect treatment comparison to examine the comparative efficacy and safety of the surgical procedures to treat SULs compared with UAE. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, Lilacs, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases were searched from inception to February 2016...

The current commonly used treatments for cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) include multiple treatments such as medication, uterine artery embolization, curettage and surgery, and their combinations. However, every treatment option has risks of excessive hemorrhage from uterus. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the risk factors for intraoperative hemorrhage of different treatments for CSP patients, with the hope to provide the guidance for CSP treatment.Fifty-eight cases of CSP patients who were treated with curettage after medication, curettage after uterine artery embolization, or surgery were retrospectively analyzed and compared for the clinical efficacy, length of hospital stay, and hemorrhage rate...

BACKGROUND: Sheehan's syndrome occurs because of severe postpartum hemorrhage causing ischemic pituitary necrosis. Sheehan's syndrome is a well-known condition that is generally diagnosed several years postpartum. However, acute Sheehan's syndrome is rare, and clinicians have little exposure to it. It can be life-threatening. There have been no reviews of acute Sheehan's syndrome and no reports of successful pregnancies after acute Sheehan's syndrome. We present such a case, and to understand this rare condition, we have reviewed and discussed the literature pertaining to it...

Surgical strategies for the treatment of uterine artery pseudoaneurysm (UAP) include transarterial embolization and ultrasound-guided low-dose thrombin injection. Such strategies, however, have limitations and include the risk of ischemic damage to the uterus. We report a case of UAP treated with a new hysteroscopic and laparoscopic technique. A 29-year-old G1P0 woman with spontaneous abortion was transferred to the present institution because of hemorrhagic shock. We diagnosed ruptured UAP on transvaginal ultrasound with color Doppler...

Benign metastasizing leiomyomas (BMLs) are rare sequelae of common uterine leiomyomas and most frequently found in the lungs. Most cases of BMLs occur with a history of prior gynecologic procedures; however, none have yet been reported in association with uterine artery embolization (UAE). This case report highlights the disease course for a 48-yo female with a history of both myomectomy and UAE for uterine fibroids who presented later with bilateral pulmonary BMLs. Though the pathophysiology of BMLs is poorly understood and this case is confounded by prior myomectomy, it does bring into question whether UAE has a role in BML development...

A 30-year-old woman experienced severe abdominal pain 8 days after vaginal delivery. The patient was diagnosed with hemoperitoneum due to rupture of the left uterine artery pseudoaneurysm, which was confirmed via ultrasound with color Doppler and computed tomography scans. This patient was treated with bilateral uterine artery embolization to maintain fertility. A uterine artery pseudoaneurysm that causes delayed postpartum hemorrhage can occur after cesarean section or vaginal delivery. A uterine artery pseudoaneurysm can be fatal, so its detection and diagnosis are critical...

Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a common presentation of women in the emergency department. We describe the case of a 33-year-old female who presented with intermittent spotting due to an acquired uterine AVF. The patient underwent a transvaginal pelvic ultrasound as well as a CT angiogram. The patient was treated conservatively and elected to undergo uterine artery embolization in an effort to preserve fertility. She successfully delivered a healthy baby boy at 39-week gestation via an emergent caesarian section due to a prolapsed umbilical cord 17 months after undergoing the uterine artery embolization...

Transcatheter arterial embolization has become a common management option for intractable postpartum uterine hemorrhage. Iodinated contrast agents are commonly used for embolotherapy but cannot be used in patients with renal dysfunction or iodine allergy. A 37-year-old woman spontaneously delivered a healthy girl but developed severe postpartum uterine hemorrhage, probably due to placenta accrete. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed extravasation of the iodinated contrast agent into the uterine cavity...
