Laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy with uterine artery occlusion at a freestanding ambulatory surgery center: a case series.

Gynecol Surg 2020 16;17(1). Epub 2020 Jun 16.

The Center for Innovative GYN Care, 3206 Tower Oaks Blvd., Suite 200, Rockville, MD 20852 USA.

Background: Non-hysteroscopic myomectomy is infrequently performed in a freestanding ambulatory setting, in part due to risks of intraoperative hemorrhage. There are also concerns about increased surgical risks for morbidly obese patients in this setting. The purpose of this study is to report the surgical outcomes of a series of laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy (LAM) cases at a freestanding ambulatory surgery center (ASC), including a comparative analysis of outcomes in morbidly obese patients (BMI > 40 kg/m).

Robotic glove port technique for the endowristed rigid instruments in robotic single-site transabdominal and transvaginal surgery.

Authors:
Yun Seok Yang

J Robot Surg 2020 Jun 6. Epub 2020 Jun 6.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Eulji University Hospital, Eulji University, 1306 Doonsan-dong, Daejeon, 302-799, Korea.

Although robotic single-site (RSS) surgery employing cross setup of semirigid instruments allows effective triangulation of instruments, it has some limitations in performing RSS transabdominal and transvaginal surgeries. We introduced the robotic glove port technique (RGPT) using parallel setup of endowristed rigid instruments in performing RSS transabdominal surgery and transvaginal surgery in July of 2017. Thirty-five patients underwent RSS surgery with RGPT. Read More

Surg Technol Int 2020 May;36:159-177

Center for Menstrual Disorders, Rochester, New York.

Office-based gynecologic surgery (OBGS) has become an integral part of modern practice. The technological achievements of the past few decades have dramatically improved our ability to diagnose and treat a variety of common issues that affect fertility and menstruation. Procedures that once required the complex milieu of a hospital or outpatient setting-diagnostic hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation, hysteroscopic polypectomy, and myomectomy-are now well within the reach of motivated and well-trained practitioners.

Updates and Controversies of Robotic-Assisted Surgery in Gynecologic Surgery.

Clin Obstet Gynecol 2019 12;62(4):733-748

Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is the standard approach to performance of several gynecologic procedures, including hysterectomy, gynecologic cancer staging procedures, myomectomy, pelvic organ prolapse repair, and select adnexal procedures. Robotic-assisted surgery, a computer-based MIS approach, has been adopted widely in the United States and several other countries. Robotics may offer technological and ergonomic benefits that overcome limitations associated with conventional laparoscopy; however, it is not clear that reported claims of superiority translate into improved gynecologic patient outcomes compared with other MIS approaches.

Morcellation for Gynecologic Surgery.

Clin Obstet Gynecol 2019 12;62(4):727-732

Wisconsin Fertility Institute, Middleton, Wisconsin.

Morcellation is necessary for many women with fibroids who choose to undergo laparoscopic myomectomy or hysterectomy. After open and laparoscopic myomectomy, myometrial cells can be detected in the abdomen and pelvis. After morcellation, careful inspection for and removal of tissue fragments and copious irrigation and suctioning of fluid can remove residual tissue with or without the use of containment bags.

NAMS 2018 Utian Translational Science Symposium, October 2018, San Diego, California New therapies for leiomyomas: when surgery may not be the best option.

Authors:

Menopause 2019 09;26(9):947-957

The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) held the 2018 Utian Translational Science Symposium on October 2, 2018, in San Diego, California, to discuss new therapeutic approaches to uterine leiomyomas when surgery is not the optimal choice.Uterine leiomyomas arise from a single clonal cell and are the most common gynecologic disorder affecting reproductive and perimenopausal women worldwide. The prevalence of this disorder is approximately 40% to 70% in white women and 60% to 80% in black women. Read More

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai, China. Electronic address:

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is a significant innovation in the field of minimally invasive surgery. Transvaginal NOTES has gained the most popularity than other transluminal natural orifices such as mouth, rectum, urinary tract or vagina. Since vNOTES is introduced, many surgeons have developed the technique in various gynecologic surgeries. Read More

Mass lesions of the myometrium: interpretation and management of unexpected pathology.

Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2019 10;31(5):349-355

UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign uterine smooth muscle tumors. On the basis of imaging, these masses are often presumed to be benign conventional leiomyomas and surgical excision is a common treatment choice. After myomectomy or hysterectomy for presumed leiomyomas, the surgical pathology report may reveal an unexpected diagnosis of another type of mesenchymal tumor. Read More

Lnc-AL445665.1-4 may be involved in the development of multiple uterine leiomyoma through interacting with miR-146b-5p.

BMC Cancer 2019 Jul 18;19(1):709. Epub 2019 Jul 18.

Key Laboratory of Obstetrics and Gynecologic and Pediatric Diseases and Birth Defects of Ministry of Education, West China Second Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, 610041, Sichuan, People's Republic of China.

Background: The clinical behaviors and cytogenetics of solitary uterine leiomyomas (SUL) and multiple uterine leiomyomas (MUL) vary, which greatly affects the choice of treatments for reproductive-aged patients with leiomyomas. Our previous study demonstrated that a series of microRNAs, including miR-146b-5p, are dysregulated and play important roles in the development of SUL and MUL. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) can participate in the pathogenesis of several diseases by regulating the expression of microRNAs; however, their roles in regulating miR-146b-5b and in the pathology of leiomyomas are unclear.
