BACKGROUND: Although still experimental, natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) aims to use the natural orifices for intraabdominal surgery. Pure transvaginal umbilical hernia repair has been reported. However, mesh protection devices were used to minimize mesh contamination during mesh insertion. The authors believe that before widespread implementation of this technique, more foundational research is indicated to establish the sterility of hernia mesh insertion through this route...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a common problem which prompts more than 20% of all visits to outpatient clinics, and may account for more than 25% of all hysterectomies. The objective of this study was to determine the role of transvaginal ultrasonography in women of perimenopausal age group presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding. METHODS: This descriptive study was conducted in Department of Obstructs and Gynaecology, Railway General Hospital, Rawalpindi...

BACKGROUND: Clinical applications of transvaginal Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) are still limited in the literature, mostly case reports performed by hybrid procedures with laparoscopic assistance. Avoiding complications from incisions is the main goal for natural orifice surgery. This study reports on a technique developed at our institution that uses two endoscopes inserted into the vagina to perform a Totally NOTES (T-NOTES) transvaginal cholecystectomy, and describes preliminary results...

BACKGROUND: Implantation sites other than the fallopian tube are rarely encountered in ectopic pregnancies. No cases of an implantation in the cervical muscular layer had been reported at this writing. CASE: A 32-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 0, induced abortion 1, was admitted to our hospital with the suspicion of ectopic pregnancy. Although an explorative laparoscopy and dilation and curettage failed to detect a definite implantation site, postoperative tranvaginal ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) disclosed a pregnancy implanted in the fibromuscular layer of the cervix...

To determine the usefulness of transvaginal ultrasonographic cervical assessment for the prediction of preterm delivery in an apparently normal population, 729 pregnant women (between 15 and 34 weeks' gestation) were randomly enrolled in the study in ten tertiary perinatal centers in Japan. Cervical parameters, including cervical length, internal os dilatation, and funneling depth, were measured by transvaginal ultrasound. The predictive values of these measurements for preterm delivery were investigated in a prospective fashion...

Eighteen patients with primary (n = 8) or secondary (n = 10) ovarian failure were enrolled in a donation program. In 15 cases, the oocytes were donated anonymously; in 3 cases, they were donated by the sister of the recipient. All the recipients had cyclic steroid replacement therapy that included estrogens and progesterone administered by the transdermal and tranvaginal routes, respectively. The embryos obtained were cryopreserved and replaced with no attempt at synchronization between donor and recipient...
