Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Endometriosis has a large impact on the lives of patients, affecting nearly 90% of women with chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Unfortunately, diagnosis for this condition is often delayed by an average of 7 years, with adolescent patients experiencing disproportionate delays. This is in part due to the use of an invasive procedure for primary diagnosis and limited access to subspecialty care. Read More

Symptomatic or asymptomatic recurrence of ovarian cancer: does it influence survival?

Int J Gynecol Cancer 2022 Jun 9. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Gynecologic, Sorlandet Hospital Kristiansand, Kristiansand, Norway.

Objective: The survival benefit of monitoring CA125 in ovarian cancer patients after primary treatment is debated due to findings varying from insignificant survival differences to prolonged median overall survival in favor of asymptomatic patients. Hence we aimed to compare ovarian cancer patients with and without symptoms at the time of the first diagnosed recurrence in terms of post-recurrence survival and overall survival, and to explore time to recurrence and common symptoms at recurrence.

Methods: We included 421 women with ovarian cancer from a prospective multi-institutional Norwegian study of first recurrence of gynecological cancer over the period from March 2012 to April 2016. Read More

Surgical outcome of benign cases with pelvic adhesions undergoing robotic total hysterectomy.

J Chin Med Assoc 2022 Jun 6. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Taipei Medical University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC.

Background: Robotic total hysterectomies have been considered contraindicated for patients with intra-abdominal adherences, but the evidence for this is not strong, and we hypothesized that the procedure can be of benefit even in these cases. In our research, we analyzed how the severity of pelvic adhesions affect robotic total hysterectomy, and by comparing different types of adhesions, we can further identify the outcomes differences in between, which may aid in future surgical decision making.

Methods: Retrospective cohort study (Design Classification II-2) Patients and Interventions: All 410 patients with uterine myoma or adenomyosis undergoing robotic total hysterectomies between 2011 and 2016 using the da Vinci Si system by the same surgeon in TMUH were included in the study.
