Long-Term Pregnancy Outcomes of Patients with Diffuse Adenomyosis after Double-Flap Adenomyomectomy.

J Clin Med 2022 Jun 17;11(12). Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Women's Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, No.1 Xueshi Road, Hangzhou 310006, China.

Although many studies show that patients with diffuse adenomyosis who underwent fertility-sparing surgery can have a successful pregnancy, their pregnancy outcomes are still controversial. The objective of this study was to determine long-term pregnancy outcomes and possible influencing factors after double-flap adenomyomectomy for patients with diffuse adenomyosis. A total of 137 patients with diffuse adenomyosis who underwent double-flap adenomyomectomy between January 2011 and December 2019 were studied, and correlations between pregnancy outcomes and clinical data, including age and junctional zone measured by magnetic resonance imaging (JZ), were analyzed.

MRI and Adenomyosis: What Can Radiologists Evaluate?

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 05 11;19(10). Epub 2022 May 11.

Department of Radiological, Oncological and Pathological Sciences, Policlinico Umberto I, Sapienza University of Rome, 00161 Rome, Italy.

Uterine adenomyosis is a common benign condition defined by the presence of heterotopic endometrial glands and stroma within the myometrium. Adenomyosis is often related to infertility and other adverse pregnancy outcomes. Modern imaging techniques allow the non-invasive diagnosis of adenomyosis and, in this framework, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has assumed a central role due to its high diagnostic accuracy in the detection of adenomyosis.

Department of Radiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Adenomyosis poses an important diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in women's health because of a variety of clinical/imaging presentations and frequent coexistence with other benign gynecologic conditions. In recent years, uterine artery embolization (UAE) for the treatment of adenomyosis has shown encouraging and favorable outcomes and long-term symptom improvement. To expand the current understanding of adenomyosis pathophysiology, imaging diagnostic criteria, and treatment outcomes, the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation gathered a multidisciplinary Research Consensus Panel with experts from diverse backgrounds.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of Postgraduate Education, Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine.

Endometrial pathology, including hyperplastic processes in the structure of reproductive disorders, occupies one of the leading places along with inflammatory diseases of the pelvic organs, contributing to infertility in 80% of cases and irregular menstrual cycle in 40-43%. This study aims to optimize the diagnostic algorithm in patients with endometrial hyperplasia combined with chronic endometritis and determine qualitative indicators of compression sonoelastography in patients with endometrial pathology and infertility. A comprehensive clinical and laboratory examination of 90 infertile patients aged 25 to 45 years with endometrial hyperplasia combined with chronic inflammation, retention cysts, and benign ovarian tumors was carried out.

A Modified Bowel Displacement Technique for Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery in the Treatment of Uterine Fibroids and Adenomyosis.

J Comput Assist Tomogr 2022 May-Jun 01;46(3):379-382. Epub 2022 Apr 8.

Department of Radiology, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, P.R. China.

Objective: The clinical application of magnetic resonance imaging-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) surgery for treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids is often limited because of the bowel between the abdominal wall and uterus. If bowels are in the pathway of sonication path, firstly filling the bladder, then filling the rectum, and emptying the bladder subsequently can be used to avoid them in recent research. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the modified bowel displacement technique (rectal filling first and then bladder filling, with or without subsequent bladder emptying) was feasible to create secure acoustic window.

Endometriosis in para-aortic lymph node resembling a malignancy: a case report and literature review.

BMC Womens Health 2022 04 5;22(1):101. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Department of Gynecology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, No. 1 Youyi Road, Yuzhong District, Chongqing, 400016, People's Republic of China.

Background: Endometriosis is a common benign gynecological disease characterized by growing-functioning endometrial tissue outside the uterus. Extra-pelvic endometriosis, which accounts for approximately 12% of endometriosis, is more challenging to diagnose because of its distance from the pelvic organs. Halban's theory of benign metastasis indicates that endometrial cells can appear in extra-pelvic organs via lymphatic and blood vessels, but endometrial lymph node metastasis cases are still rare.

Prevalence of endometriosis and adenomyosis at transvaginal ultrasound examination in symptomatic women.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2022 May 27;101(5):524-531. Epub 2022 Feb 27.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Skåne University Hospital, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

Introduction: Prevalence of endometriosis is commonly reported based on surgery findings and varies widely depending on study population and indication for surgery. Symptoms such as dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, dyspareunia, dysuria, and dyschezia can be associated with endometriosis and adenomyosis. Transvaginal ultrasound examination is proposed to be the first-line diagnostic method, nevertheless there are no published ultrasound-based studies reporting prevalence of endometriosis and adenomyosis in symptomatic women other than those scheduled for surgery.

Pregnancy-induced hemorrhagic degeneration of adenomyosis.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2022 May 16;48(5):1265-1270. Epub 2022 Feb 16.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

Uterine fibroids are known to degenerate during pregnancy, but it is unknown if similar pathologic condition occurs in adenomyosis. A 38-year-old para 1 woman exhibited uterine tenderness and a markedly elevated inflammatory response at 22 weeks of gestation. Based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings indicative of hemorrhagic components in an adenomyosis lesion, we judged these features resulted from degeneration of adenomyosis after excluding the possibility of underlying infection by amniocentesis.
