During pregnancy, decidual tissue can occur beyond the endometrium, predominantly on the surface of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. This condition, called ectopic deciduosis, generally is not accompanied by any symptoms and complications, does not require treatment, and resolves completely soon after labor. However, rarely it can present with acute abdomen syndrome or imitate peritoneal malignancy and, thus, cause diagnostic difficulties and unnecessary interventions. Here, we report a challenging case of a pregnant woman admitted with acute peritonitis caused by ectopic deciduosis that mimicked peritoneal carcinomatosis. This uncommon manifestation of deciduosis hindered correct diagnosis and led to excessive surgery. While the management of the patient presented is regrettable, the case highlights the natural history of deciduosis, and therefore, important lessons could be learned from it.

A Comparative Study on the Effects of High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Technology and Electrostimulation for the Treatment of Pelvic Floor Muscles and Urinary Incontinence in Parous Women: Analysis of Posttreatment Data.

Female Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2021 04;27(4):269-273

From the Hospital Lapino MD Medical Group, Moscow, Russia.

Objectives: Pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) weakening and urinary incontinence (UI) represent health issues that have a negative impact on daily life. This study compares the immediate efficiency of high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) therapy and electrostimulation for the treatment of weakened PFMs, accompanied by the UI.

Methods: Ninety-five parous women were considered for the study. Symptomatic patients received either HIFEM or electrostimulation treatment. Treated patients completed 10 therapies scheduled 2 to 3 times per week (HIFEM) or every other day (electrostimulation). Patients underwent examination by 3-dimensional transperienal ultrasound at the baseline and posttreatments. Levator-urethra gap, anteroposterior diameter, laterolateral diameter of levator hiatus, and hiatal area were measured. In addition, Pelvic Floor Disability Index 20 questionnaire and subjective evaluation of patient's intimate health were assessed.

Results: Enrolled patients were divided into group I (n = 50, HIFEM), group II (n = 25, electrostimulation), and group III (n = 20, control) according the indication and treatment modality. Three-dimensional ultrasounds showed positive changes in dynamics of the pelvic floor posttreatment (decreased anteroposterior diameter, laterolateral diameter, and hiatal area). However, the significant (P < 0.05) changes of pelvic floor integrity were observed only in group I. In addition, group I achieved greater level of improvement in Pelvic Floor Disability Index 20 questionnaire compared with group II (52% and 18% respectively; P < 0.001). Substantially fewer patients in group I reported urine leakage after treatments.

Conclusions: Posttreatment results suggest that HIFEM technology is suitable for treatment of PFMs weakening and showed to be more effective when compared with electrostimulation in short-term. Therefore, we recommend HIFEM as treatment option for weakened PFMs and UI.

[Development and practical implementation of organ preservation surgery in case of placenta accreta in patients with a scar on the uterus].

Probl Sotsialnoi Gig Zdravookhranenniiai Istor Med 2019 Aug;27(Special Issue):693-698

Center for Family Planning and Reproduction, Moscow, Russia, 117209.

Comparative analysis of methods for preventing/stopping intraoperative hemorrhage during surgical delivery of patients with placenta accreta (temporary balloon-assisted occlusion of common iliac arteries, internal iliac artery ligation; uterine artery embolization - UAE) has shown that internal iliac artery ligation is not effective. UAE and especially balloon-assisted occlusion of common iliac arteries have demonstrated a significantly greater effect due to the temporary 'devascularization' of the uterine corpus. It has been proved that an innovative surgical technique - a lower segment Caesarean section (LSCS) significantly reduces intraoperative blood loss. The main purpose of an alternative uterus cut - anterior placenta previa preserving and bleeding absence before the child removal - has been achieved within all observations. LSCS has caused a significantly smaller (by 1.6 times) amount of intraoperative blood loss than the corporal one. Another innovative surgical technique is metroplasty. It entails removing placenta accreta areas from the uterus with subsequent restoration of the organ integrity. The authors have proved the necessity of autologous advance blood donation and hemodilution strategy, which was first implemented in Moscow Center for Family Planning and Reproduction, and after 2006 was used in all obstetric institutions in Moscow. This allowed reducing the number of blood donations up to 85% and additionally decreased transfusiological risks which is economically valuable as well. Improvement of diagnostic methods, operating techniques, hemostasis, blood volume redistribution and creating an algorithm on its basis has proved the possibility of implementing an organ-, life, health- and fertility preserving approach in cases of placenta accreta in patients with a scar on the uterus after cesarean section. The introduction of the enhanced principles of patient management with placenta accreta has significantly reduced the number of hysterectomies in Moscow (from 48 in 2007 to 8 in 2016), and during the last 2 years no patient with this complication has had a hysterectomy. 12 out of 85 patients who had deliveries in accordance with the developed algorithm, have realized their subsequent fertility.

[Complicated appendicitis during pregnancy].

Khirurgiia (Mosk) 2019 (4):15-23

Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University of Ministry of Health of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

Aim: To analyze incidence, diagnosis and treatment of complicated appendicitis in pregnant women and to determine the optimal surgical approach.

Material And Methods: Retrospective cohort analysis included 338 pregnant women who underwent appendectomy in 2012-2016. Complicated appendicitis (abscess, local or common peritonitis and their combinations) was diagnosed in 22 cases. The main perioperative variables (duration of the disease, time of surgery, length of hospital-stay, incidence of wound complications, etc.), clinical and laboratory symptoms, results of ultrasound diagnosis and pregnancy outcomes were analyzed. Statistical analysis was carried out in Stata 14.2. Fisher's exact test, Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon's U-test and multivariate regression analysis were used to compare data.

Results: The incidence of complicated appendicitis in pregnant women was 6.51%. There are no clinical symptoms which would be significantly more common in complicated appendicitis during pregnancy. Complicated course prolongs surgery and hospital-stay, however duration of postoperative analgesia depends on surgical technique as a rule. There were 27% of laparoscopic interventions that is lower compared with women with uncomplicated appendicitis. The percentage of conversions was higher too.

Conclusion: Clinical diagnosis of complicated appendicitis during pregnancy even by using of ultrasound is not satisfactory and requires the involvement of other objective methods, such as MRI. Laparoscopic intervention is not contraindicated in pregnant women with complicated appendicitis and determine better treatment outcomes than open surgery.

[Acute appendicitis during pregnancy].

Khirurgiia (Mosk) 2019(1):70-77

Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University of Healthcare Ministry of Russia, Moscow, Russia.

Acute appendicitis is the most frequent surgical disease complicating pregnancy. Accurate diagnosis is difficult due to atypical and misleading clinical manifestations. Surgeons frequently do not know about advantages and disadvantages of different diagnostic methods applied during pregnancy. Treatment of acute appendicitis in pregnant women remains the real challenge for surgeons. There are enough researches indicating on benefits and risks of both open and laparoscopic operations. The main risk is due to fetal loss after laparoscopic procedure. Safety of diagnostic techniques and laparoscopic procedures, surgical tactics and independent risk factors of pregnancy loss are touched in the article.
