Postpartum hemorrhage that occurs frequently with placenta previa is one of the causes of maternal mortality in 14% in developing countries. To assess efficacy of cervical inversion as a tamponade in controlling bed of placenta in cases of placenta previa. A prospective randomized controlled study was conducted among a total of 240 pregnant women with placenta previa (120 subjected to Alalfy modified cervical inversion technique plus hemostatic sutures and 120 was not subjected cervical inversion and only was subjected to hemostatic sutures in Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Suez Canal University hospital, Helwan University and Algezeerah hospital for a planned cesarean section). The mean intraoperative blood loss, the intraoperative time, and the postoperative hemoglobin show a statistically significant difference between cases with placenta previa who were exposed to cervical inversion in comparison to cases that had no cervical inversion with a -value <.001. Modified cervical inversion (Alalfy technique) as a tamponade when added to hemostatic sutures to the placental bed is an easy, rapid, and efficient procedure that can decrease the amount of blood loss, time needed to stop bleeding per bed, total operative time, also it can decrease the need for blood transfusion.

Oral micronised flavonoids versus tranexamic acid for treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding secondary to copper IUD use: a randomised double-blind clinical trial.

Objective: The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy of micronised flavonoids versus tranexamic acid in reducing menstrual blood loss (MBL) associated with the use of the TCu 380A intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) in women with heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB).

Methods: We conducted a randomised double-blind clinical trial between October 2016 and August 2017 in 100 women with HMB (defined as a pictorial blood assessment chart [PBAC] score >100) secondary to IUD use. After assessment of MBL using PBAC score in a baseline cycle, participants were randomised to receive either oral tranexamic acid 500 mg or oral micronised flavonoids 500 mg every 6 h for the first three days of menstruation. PBAC scores were collected in the three subsequent treatment cycles. The primary outcome was the difference in PBAC scores between the groups. Two-way repeated measures ANOVA was used to assess the primary outcome of the change in PBAC scores.

Results: Mean PBAC scores were significantly improved in the tranexamic acid group compared with the micronised flavonoids group (236 ± 48, 105 ± 26, 97 ± 16 and 93 ± 15 at the baseline, first, second and third study cycle, respectively, versus 227 ± 52, 139 ± 29, 128 ± 25 and 125 ± 24 in the micronised flavonoids group; p = .01). Moreover, the number of bleeding days and number of pads used were significantly reduced in the tranexamic acid group compared with the micronised flavonoids group (p = .009 and p = .03, respectively). Side effects were comparable between the two groups.

Conclusion: Oral tranexamic acid compared with oral micronised flavonoids is more effective in reducing HMB associated with copper IUD use. Treating IUD-induced HMB using tranexamic acid was more effective compared with micronised flavonoids in decreasing MBL volume and the number of bleeding days.

Ovarian Reserve Following Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy vs Cyst Deroofing for Endometriomas.

J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2019 Jul - Aug;26(5):877-882. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt (Drs. Sweed, Makled, El-Sayed, Shawky, Abd-Elhady, Mansour, Mohamed, Hemeda, Attia, Eltaieb, Allam, and Husseein).

Study Objective: Because laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy of endometriomas is known to adversely impact patient ovarian reserve, the search for other techniques of surgical management is ongoing. The present study was undertaken to evaluate laparoscopic cyst deroofing as a feasible alternative.

Study Design: Prospective, randomized clinical trial (Canadian Task Force classification I).

Setting: University maternity hospital.

Patients: Women diagnosed with unilateral or bilateral ovarian endometriomas.

Interventions: Patients were managed with either laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy or cyst deroofing.

Measurements And Main Results: A total of 122 women with endometriomas were randomized to either laparoscopic cystectomy (group 1) or laparoscopic cyst deroofing (group 2). The primary endpoint was the effect on ovarian reserve based on changes in anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) values. At 1 month postsurgery, anti-Müllerian hormone values were significantly decreased (p < .001) from preoperative values, from 4.25 ± 0.87 ng/mL to 1.66 ± 1.02 ng/mL in group 1 and from 4.2 ± 1.69 ng/mL to 2.15 ± 1.48 ng/mL in group 2. In addition, antral follicle count and ovarian volume decreased significantly (p < .001) in both groups by 1 month postsurgery. The decreases in these 3 parameters were more significant (p < .001) in group 1 than in group 2.

Conclusion: Laparoscopic cyst deroofing of endometriomas appears to be a promising alternative to laparoscopic cystectomy, with less postoperative decrease in ovarian reserve; however, the higher rate of endometrioma recurrence warrants future clinical research to determine the optimal surgical management of endometriomas.
