[Effectiveness of abdominal minimal incision sacrocolpopexy for advanced pelvic organ prolapse].

Zhonghua Fu Chan Ke Za Zhi 2021 May;56(5):328-334

UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA.

To evaluate the indications, surgical skills and clinic outcomes of abdominal minimal incision sacrocolpopexy (AMISC) for treatment of advanced pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The retrospective study analyzed 30 women with advanced POP who underwent AMISC between June 2016 and October 2019, including 9 cases of recurrent prolapse and 10 cases of vault prolapse. AMISC was especially applicable to: (1) patients with several medical complications who was unable to tolerate general anesthesia or laparoscopic surgery, but able to tolerate combined spinal-epidural anesthesia and open surgery; (2) other abdominal procedures were indicated to perform with AMISC simultaneously, such as myomectomy, subtotal hysterectomy etc, the specimens were easy to get out of the abdominal cavity and morcellation was avoided; (3) surgeons preferring open surgery to laparoscopic surgery or skilled in open surgery; (4) patients with prior pelvic operations, presenting severe abdominal and pelvic adhesions.

Racial and ethnic disparities in access to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for benign pathology.

Curr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2021 May 19. Epub 2021 May 19.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, D.C., USA.

Purpose Of Review: To review current US literature and describe the extent, source, and impact of disparities that exist among Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) in surgical route and outcomes for hysterectomy, myomectomy, and endometriosis surgery.

Recent Findings: Despite the nationwide trend toward minimally invasive surgery (MIS), BIPOC women are disproportionally less likely to undergo MIS hysterectomy and myomectomy and have higher rates of perioperative complications. African American women, in particular, receive significantly disparate care. Read More

Reducing the risk of bleeding after myomectomy: is preemptive embolization a valuable tool?

CVIR Endovasc 2021 May 20;4(1):42. Epub 2021 May 20.

Department of Interventional Radiology, Hopital Paris Saint-Joseph, Paris, Ile-de-France, France.

Purpose: Abdominal myomectomy can be a challenging procedure, with elevated intraoperative blood loss and post-operative complications such as the need for blood transfusion and hemostasis with sometimes hysterectomy. Previous studies suggested that preemptive uterine artery embolization (PUAE) might reduce intraoperative blood loss.

Materials And Methods: We reviewed all cases of abdominal myomectomy in our institution between January 2016 and June 2018. Read More

Resectoscopic Surgery Part I: Overcoming Obstacles and Mastering the Basics.

Authors:
Morris Wortman

Surg Technol Int 2021 05 4;38. Epub 2021 May 4.

Clinical Associate Professor of Gynecology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York.

The introduction of the continuous flow gynecologic resectoscope (CFGR) in 1989 revolutionized minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) by introducing such intrauterine procedures as hysteroscopic myomectomy, polypectomy, and endometrial ablation. However, with the subsequent introduction of global endometrial ablation (GEA) devices and hysteroscopic morcellators (HMs), the CFGR has fallen into relative disuse-a regrettable situation since it remains ideally suited for accomplishing many procedures that are otherwise not achievable with these newer technologies. Procedures which involve greater precision and control-endomyometrial resection (EMR), hysteroscopic metroplasty, the correction of isthmoceles, the resection of intramural myomas, and the management of late-onset endometrial ablation failure-are only possible with the CFGR.

Cost comparison of gynecologic procedures between the US and a developing country: an observational study.

J Robot Surg 2021 Feb 26. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lebanese American University Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Morcellation in gynecology: short review and suggestions from Turkish Society of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Oncology

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2021 02 4;22(1):53-57. Epub 2021 Jan 4.

Department of Gynecologic Oncology, Acıbadem University Faculty of Medicine, İstanbul, Turkey

Morcellation allows the removal of a large uterus and fibroids through small incisions with minimally invasive surgery. It helps to prevent the complications associated with large incisions in both hysterectomy and myomectomy operations. Currently, there is much debate regarding the use of power morcellation in laparoscopic hysterectomy and myomectomy, mainly due to the risk of peritoneal dissemination of undiagnosed uterine sarcomas.

Hemodynamic changes following accidental infiltration of a high dose of vasopressin.

J Int Med Res 2020 Sep;48(9):300060520959494

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Daejoen Eulji Medical Center, Eulji University, Daejeon, Korea.

Vasopressin local infiltration is useful in gynecological surgery because it can reduce hemorrhage. Depending on the activities of the sympathetic system and the renin-angiotensin system, reactions to vasopressin may differ and predicting its systemic effects is difficult. Because life-threatening complications can occur, infiltration with vasopressin should be administered with caution. Read More
