Virtual clinics in gynaecology - Can we shorten the wait? A randomised controlled trial implementing a novel care pathway for postmenopausal bleeding.

Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol 2022 Jun 26. Epub 2022 Jun 26.

Endosurgery (Gynaecology) Department, Mercy Hospital for Women, Heidelberg, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Hysteroscopy-Guided Natural Orifice Repair of Isthmocele.

Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2022 Apr-Jun;11(2):116-118. Epub 2022 May 4.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetric, Bakirkoy Dr. Sadi Konuk Education and Research Hospital, University of Health Sciences, Istanbul, Turkey.

Isthmocele can be defined as a hypoechoic field within the lower uterine segment, indicating a discontinuation of the myometrium at the uterine scar of a previous cesarean section. Postmenstrual spotting, pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, uterine rupture, cesarean scar pregnancy, and secondary infertility could be seen as the complications of existing isthmocele. Such defects are prevalent with the increasing number of cesarean deliveries. Read More

A New Methodology to Assess Fallopian Tubes Microbiota and Its Impact on Female Fertility.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 Jun 2;12(6). Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Division of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Cagliari, 09042 Cagliari, Italy.

Tubal factor is an important contributor to female infertility, and the current diagnostic approaches cannot correctly identify many subtle causes of tubal dysfunction. While it is known that the most common cause of tubal factor infertility is pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), creating critical alterations of the tubal epithelium, little attention has been devoted to understanding the tubal modifications caused by the resident microbial population and their interaction with the surrounding tubal epithelium. Furthermore, most of these samples are obtained by traumatic procedures such as direct sampling during laparoscopy using a cytobrush. Read More

Combined procedure of the transcervical radiofrequency ablation (TRFA) system and surgical hysteroscopy. Increased risk or safe procedure?

Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne 2022 Jun 17;17(2):380-384. Epub 2022 Feb 17.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Academic Hospital, Cologne Weyertal University of Cologne, Germany.

Introduction: The advantage of transcervical radiofrequency ablation (TRFA) is that it is minimally invasive, incision-free, and treats a wide spectrum of fibroids, including those that are not accessible by surgical hysteroscopy (FIGO 3, 4, 5, 6, and 2-5). However, there are no publications describing a combined procedure of operative hysteroscopy and TRFA yet, so it was still unknown whether a combined procedure is associated with additional risks.

Aim: To report the combined technique of transcervical intrauterine radiofrequency ablation of fibroids and surgical hysteroscopy. Read More

Outpatient hysteroscopy is effective for uterine cavity evaluation following failed office-based endometrial biopsy.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2022 Jun 15. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Newborn Care, The Ottawa Hospital & University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Failure to obtain an office-based endometrial biopsy for abnormal uterine bleeding is not uncommon. Although operating room-based procedures are traditionally considered the gold standard assessment tool in these circumstances, outpatient hysteroscopy is a less invasive, more cost-effective, and safer alternative. However, there is no contemporary Canadian literature on the effectiveness of an outpatient approach for this specific population. Read More

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.
