Am J Obstet Gynecol 2017 11 12;217(5):603.e1-603.e6. Epub 2017 Jun 12.

Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of California, Riverside, Riverside, CA.

Background: Fallopian tubes are commonly removed during laparoscopic and open hysterectomy to prevent ovarian and tubal cancer but are not routinely removed during vaginal hysterectomy because of perceptions of increased morbidity, difficulty, or inadequate surgical training.

Objective: We sought to quantify complications and costs associated with a strategy of planned salpingectomy during vaginal hysterectomy.

Study Design: We created a decision analysis model using TreeAgePro. Read More

J Med Case Rep 2016 Dec 21;10(1):374. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

Department of Clinical Genetics, Aalborg University Hospital, Ladegårdsgade 5, Aalborg, 9000, Denmark.

Background: The vertebral defect, anal atresia, cardiac defect, tracheoesophageal fistula/esophageal atresia, renal defect, and limb defect association and Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome are rare conditions. We aimed to present two cases with the vertebral defect, anal atresia, cardiac defect, tracheoesophageal fistula/esophageal atresia, renal defect, and limb defect association and Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser co-occurrence from our local surgical center and through a systematic literature search detect published cases. Furthermore, we aimed to collect existing knowledge in the embryopathogenesis and genetics in order to discuss a possible link between the vertebral defect, anal atresia, cardiac defect, tracheoesophageal fistula/esophageal atresia, renal defect, and limb defect association and Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome.

A new strategy for prophylactic surgery in BRCA women: Combined mastectomy and laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy with immediate reconstruction by double DIEP flap.

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2016 Jun 2;61(3):177-82. Epub 2016 Mar 2.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Georges-Pompidou European Hospital, AP-HP, 20, rue Leblanc, 75015 Paris, France.

Background: Prophylactic surgery remains the most effective modality for reducing both breast and ovarian cancer rate in woman at high risk, such as BRCA1 or BRCA2. Autologous breast reconstruction with bilateral deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap allows predictable and durable results. However, existing two-step approach separating salpingo-oophorectomy and reconstruction could even make DIEP flap impossible, or make insufflation more difficult during laparoscopy. Read More

The place of reconstructive tubal surgery in the era of assisted reproductive techniques.

Authors:
Victor Gomel

Reprod Biomed Online 2015 Dec 21;31(6):722-31. Epub 2015 Sep 21.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada. Electronic address:

Assisted reproductive techniques yield high rates of success for women with tubal factor infertility. Because they are potentially effective for all categories of infertility, for two decades, clinical and basic research in infertility has been focused on IVF techniques and outcomes, rather than developing surgical techniques or training infertility subspecialists in tubal microsurgery. Nonetheless, in comparison with IVF, reconstructive tubal surgery is inexpensive and offers multiple opportunities to attempt conception. Read More

Role of salpingectomy at the time of urogynecologic surgery.

Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2015 Oct;27(5):385-9

Division of Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This article reviews the current literature about prophylactic bilateral salpingectomy and provides guidelines for clinicians in regard to the inclusion of salpingectomy at the time of urogynecologic surgery.

Recent Findings: After the Nurses' Health Study showed that all-cause mortality was increased in women undergoing oophorectomy at the time of hysterectomy for benign indications, there was a shift in focus toward ovarian conservation at the time of gynecologic surgery. As there has been continued interest in the fallopian tube as the origin of ovarian cancer, a move toward prophylactic salpingectomy has occurred. Read More
