Prevalence of histological abnormalities in hysterectomy specimens performed for prolapse. A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Int Urogynecol J 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

James Cook University Hospital, Marton Road, Middlesbrough, TS4 3BW, UK.

Introduction And Hypothesis: The practice of histopathological assessment of the uterus following hysterectomy for benign indications including pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery is common and often routine. While pathology is not anticipated, the finding of pathology requiring further action is always a concern, in particular CIN (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia) or cervical/uterine malignancy. We aimed to perform a systematic review to understand the prevalence of actionable uterine and cervical pathology in hysterectomy specimens performed for POP. Read More

Nested g-computation: A causal approach to analysis of censored medical costs in the presence of time-varying treatment.

J R Stat Soc Ser C Appl Stat 2020 Nov 25;69(5):1189-1208. Epub 2020 Aug 25.

Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104.

Rising medical costs are an emerging challenge in policy decisions and resource allocation planning. When cumulative medical cost is the outcome, right-censoring induces informative missingness due to heterogeneity in cost accumulation rates across subjects. Inverse-weighting approaches have been developed to address the challenge of informative cost trajectories in mean cost estimation, though these approaches generally ignore post-baseline treatment changes.

Atypical Endometrial Hyperplasia, Low-grade: "Much ADO About Nothing".

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 Jul;45(7):988-996

Department of Pathology, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Institute of Biomedical Research (IIB Sant Pau), Autonomous University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Atypical endometrial hyperplasia (AEH) is considered a precursor of endometrioid carcinoma. The 2020 World Health Organization (WHO) classification divides endometrial hyperplasia into 2 categories: hyperplasia without atypia and atypical hyperplasia/endometrioid intraepithelial neoplasia (EIN); however, this classification does not consider the degree of nuclear atypia. We graded nuclear atypia for estimating the risk of finding carcinoma at hysterectomy. Read More

Trends in Hysterectomy Incidence Rates During 2000-2015 in Denmark: Shifting from Abdominal to Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures.

Clin Epidemiol 2021 1;13:407-416. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, NIDO | Denmark, Gødstrup Hospital, Herning, Denmark.

Background: Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) is a common surgical procedure in gynecology. Although minimally invasive surgical procedures have been introduced, hysterectomy is still associated with risk of short- and long-term complications. Given that hysterectomized women are no longer at risk of either hysterectomy or being diagnosed with endometrial or cervical cancer, it is important to describe trends in hysterectomy rates.

"Identification and characterization of endometrial carcinoma with tumor markers HE4 and CA125 in serum and endometrial tissue samples and systematic review of the literature".

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Gynecology Oncology, Hospital Puerta de Hierro, Madrid, Spain.

Objective: The diagnosis of endometrial cancer is made by biopsy sampling with pathological analysis, but it is extremely important to make an accurate diagnosis in order to plan the specific treatment, and we suggest that HE4 in the endometrial tissue and in serum could be tools to make the diagnosis more precise.

Material And Methods: Our prospective study compared patients with endometrial cancer against non-endometrial cancer ones, matched with several variables. The inclusion criteria were females older than 18 years old that accepted to participate in the research study but that had never underwent surgery for other oncological pathologies, whether for ovarian, colon, cervical carcinoma or uterine sarcoma, and none of them had received preoperative chemo or radiotherapy; moreover, they could not have any severe renal or liver pathology.

Removing the large uterus without morcellation - The Colpo-V incision for specimen extraction at hysterectomy.

Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Sydney Women's Endosurgery Centre, St George Private Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Hysterectomy is the most commonly performed benign gynaecological surgery. Recently, the rates of minimally invasive hysterectomy have fallen due to the banning of mechanical morcellation techniques that rendered minimal invasive gynaecology surgeons unable to extract large uteri from the relatively small colpotomy incisions.

Aims: This study aims to share our experience in utilising Colpo-V incision to remove large uterine specimens transvaginally and report its success and complication rates to promote a minimal invasive approach in patients with large uteri without the need to perform large abdominal incisions or transabdominal morcellation.
