Abnormal Uterine Bleeding in Perimenopausal Women: The Role of Hysteroscopy and Its Impact on Quality of Life and Sexuality.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 May 9;12(5). Epub 2022 May 9.

Division of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Cagliari, 09124 Cagliari, Italy.

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a frequent symptom in perimenopausal women. It is defined as uterine bleeding in which the duration, frequency, or amount of bleeding is considered excessive and negatively affects the woman's quality of life (QoL) and psychological well-being. In cases of structural uterine pathology, hysterectomy (usually performed via a minimally invasive approach) offers definitive symptom relief and is associated with long-lasting improvement of QoL and sexuality.

Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata in laparoscopic port site and abdomino-pelvic cavity: A case report.

Radiol Case Rep 2022 Feb 25;17(2):293-297. Epub 2021 Nov 25.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is a rare clinical condition characterized by the development of multiple smooth muscle-like nodules in the peritoneal or abdominal cavity. Here, we report a case of a patient who was diagnosed with LPD after laparoscopic myomectomy with power morcellation. Growing evidence has shown that LPD might develop after using power morcellation for hysterectomy or myomectomy, and this can worsen the prognosis if the spreading tissue contains malignancies, such as leiomyosarcoma.

Is it time to leave Multi- for Single-port laparoscopy in benign gynecologic surgery? A systematic review of randomized clinical trials.

Minerva Obstet Gynecol 2021 Nov 18. Epub 2021 Nov 18.

Service of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Ospedale Regionale di Lugano EOC, Lugano, Switzerland.

Introduction: Conventionally, laparoscopic surgery in gynecology requires multiple accesses in the abdominal cavity. Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site surgery (LESS) is a more recent technique consisting in a laparoscopy in which the abdominal cavity is reached by a single umbilical incision. The aim of this systematic review is to summarize and comment the benefits and drawbacks in benign gynecological surgeries, including hysterectomy, myomectomy, and adnexal surgery, by LESS and conventional Multi-Port Laparoscopy (MPL), respectively.

J Adv Pharm Res 2021 ;5(2):260-275

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, 60637, USA.

Uterine fibroids (UFs) are the most prevalent gynecologic neoplasm, affecting 70-80% of women over their lifespan. Although UFs are benign they can become life-threatening and require invasive surgeries such as myomectomy and hysterectomy. Notwithstanding the significant negative influence UFs have on female reproductive health, very little is known about early events that initiate tumor development. Read More
