OBJECTIVE: To introduce the primary experience of using aortic balloon catheters during cesarean section for placenta previa and/or placenta accreta. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2013 to May 2015, 43 patients who were preoperatively diagnosed with major placenta previa and/or placenta accreta and who underwent prophylactic aortic catheterization before caesarean section (CS) were included in the study. We analyzed the clinical data of the study population...

OBJECTIVE: With the incidence of cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) rising, the reports of serious adverse outcomes of it have increased gradually. The management of CSP remains an inadequately explored clinical field, and there is no consensus on it presently. The present study was performed to investigate the efficacy and safety of operative hysteroscopy in the diagnosis and treatment of CSP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-four patients with CSP underwent operative hysteroscopy for removal of scar ectopic pregnancy in our institution...

We report a retrospective series of 12 placentas percreta with bladder invasion and for which an expected initially multidisciplinary conservative surgical treatment associated with uterine artery embolization was programmed. Conservative surgical treatment was only performed in 7 women. Radical surgical treatment was necessary during the caesarean section and complicated by massive hemorrhage in three women and secondary in two other women for infectious diseases. Radical surgical treatment was associated with partial cystectomy complicated with urinary disorder sequelae in three women...

Congenital uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an extremely rare condition with <100 cases documented in literature. We report multiparous women presenting to us with a history of postcoital bleed. Initial Doppler ultrasonography was consistent with features suggestive of AVM. Subsequently, computed tomography (CT) angiography confirmed the diagnosis. Embolization was chosen as the treatment because of the large extension of AVM and the risk of hemorrhage during hysterectomy. The patient was discharged in a stable condition with a plan of repeat embolization in the next setting...

AIM: The aim of this study was to elucidate the feasibility and safety of vaginal delivery (VD) when placental abruption causes fetal demise. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of women who were managed for placental abruption with intrauterine fetal death at Kyoto University Hospital during the period from 1995 to 2015. RESULTS: Sixteen cases were identified during the study period. VD was attempted in 15 cases and was accomplished in 14 (93...

BACKGROUND: Severe postpartum hemorrhage occurs in 1/1000 women giving birth. This condition is often dramatic and may be life threatening. Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) has in recent years been introduced as a novel treatment for hemorrhagic shock. We present a series of fluoroscopy-free REBOA for controlling life threatening postpartum hemorrhage. METHODS: In 2008 an 'aortic occlusion kit' was assembled and used in three Norwegian university hospitals...

PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate whether morphologic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features could help to predict the maternal outcome after uterine artery embolization (UAE)-assisted cesarean section (CS) in patients with invasive placenta previa. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the MRI data of 40 pregnant women who have undergone UAE-assisted cesarean section due to suspected high risk of massive hemorrhage caused by invasive placenta previa. Patients were divided into two groups based on the maternal outcome (good-outcome group: minor hemorrhage and uterus preserved; poor-outcome group: significant hemorrhage or emergency hysterectomy)...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the effect of Embosphere microsphere artery embolization on the serum level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients with uterine fibroid. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From March 2014 to December 2015, 128 women in child-bearing age with uterine intramural fibroids were enrolled in the patient group. At the same time, 128 healthy cases in child-bearing age were randomly selected and enrolled in the control group. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to measure the serum level of VEGF, and immunohistochemical staining method was used to study the expression of VEGF in the uterine fibroids...

OBJECTIVES: The main goal of the study was to evaluate sexual function before and one year after UFE. The secondary goals were to evaluate the quality of life before and one year after UFE and to determine the relation of imaging findings (MRI data) before and 3-6 months after UFE to changes in sexual function and quality of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Study design: a prospective, multicenter (25 centers) observational study was conducted. PATIENTS: a total of 264 consecutive symptomatic women undergoing UFE using Embozene® (Celonova) from March 2012 to May 2013 were enrolled...

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 128 eligible women were randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group (n = 64) who received UAE using Embosphere microspheres and panhysterectomy, respectively. Another 128 healthy women receiving physical examination in the same period were also enrolled...

Uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) can cause massive hemorrhage and is often treated with uterine artery embolization (UAE), which may lead to ovarian insufficiency. Thus, avoiding UAE should be considered, particularly in women undergoing fertility treatments. We present three women diagnosed with postmiscarriage AVM on color Doppler by transvaginal ultrasound imaging. They had no genital bleeding and a small mass, measuring 16-22 mm. If estradiol was >300 pg/mL when AVM was diagnosed, then a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist was administered...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of embolization of the round ligament arteries in the management of postpartum hemorrhage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eleven women (mean age, 31 y) underwent round ligament artery because of persistent or recurrent hemorrhage after initial uterine or internal iliac artery embolization. RESULTS: A total of 16 round ligament arteries were embolized. The round ligament artery arose from the inferior epigastric artery in 11 cases (69%) and directly from the external iliac artery in 5 (31%)...

PURPOSE: To determine feasibility of scaled signal intensity (SSI) of uterine fibroids on T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images to predict volume reduction rate (VRR) after uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, 66 premenopausal women underwent UFE. Patients underwent follow-up MR imaging 3 months after UFE. SSI of predominant fibroids was measured on T2-weighted MR images obtained before the procedure by standardizing the mean signal intensity to a 0-to-100 scale, with 0 representing rectus abdominis muscle and 100 representing subcutaneous fat (100) for reference values...

Background Transarterial particle embolization is a common treatment of uterine fibroids, aiming to obtain ischemia resulting in shrinking of the fibroid with preservation of normal uterine tissue. Embolization with non-degradable microspheres is established, but causes permanent occlusion of the arteries, affecting both the uterus as well as the fibroids. Purpose To evaluate in vivo degradation, local tissue effects, and possible recanalization following intra-arterial deposition of the new, degradable starch microspheres (DSM), in a short-term experimental pilot study...

During a women's life cycle, pregnancy is a period in which she is at risk for hemorrhagic events and obstetrical syndromes that may develop into disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). This life-threatening condition is a complication of obstetrical and non-obstetrical causes including: (1) acute peripartum hemorrhage (uterine atony, cervical and vaginal lacerations, and uterine rupture); (2) placental abruption; (3) Pre-eclampsia/HELLP syndrome; (4) retained stillbirth; (5) sepsis; (6) amniotic fluid embolism; and (7) acute fatty liver of pregnancy...
