Conventional and modern markers of endometrial receptivity: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Hum Reprod Update 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Tommy's National Centre for Miscarriage Research, Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Background: Early reproductive failure is the most common complication of pregnancy with only 30% of conceptions reaching live birth. Establishing a successful pregnancy depends upon implantation, a complex process involving interactions between the endometrium and the blastocyst. It is estimated that embryos account for one-third of implantation failures, while suboptimal endometrial receptivity and altered embryo-endometrial dialogue are responsible for the remaining two-thirds.

With the advances in miniature instruments, office hysteroscopy on conscious patients has been the standard to explore the intrauterine pathology, with the ability to perform some minor procedures concomitantly. Patients usually appreciate the efficient "see and treat" procedures with such minimal discomfort that exempt from the inconvenience of going into the operating room and the need for anesthesia. However, controversies exist in the appropriateness of its application in some clinical situations. Read More

Operative hysteroscopy for retained products of conception: Efficacy and subsequent fertility.

J Gynecol Obstet Hum Reprod 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

AP-HP, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Hospital Bicêtre, GHU Sud, F-94276, Le Kremlin Bicêtre, France; INSERM, U1018, Centre of research in Epidemiology and population health (CESP), F-94276, Le Kremlin Bicêtre, France; Faculty of medicine, University Paris Saclay, F-94276, Le Kremlin Bicêtre, France.

Retained product of conception complicates nearly 1% of pregnancies and can lead to synechiae and compromise ulterior fertility. The aim of this study is to evaluate efficiency of operative hysteroscopy in management of retained products of conception (RPOC). Secondary objectives are assessments of intra-uterine adhesions rate and later fertility. Read More

Efficacy of a New Crosslinked Hyaluronan Gel in the Prevention of Intrauterine Adhesions.

JSLS 2018 Oct-Dec;22(4)

School of Medicine, Istanbul University, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background And Objectives: The authors sought to assess the effect of the use of a new crosslinked hyaluronan (NCH) gel on the prevention of intrauterine adhesions (IUAs) in women underwent curettage in the second trimester.

Effectiveness of Outpatient Versus Operating Room Hysteroscopy for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Uterine Conditions: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

J Obstet Gynaecol Can 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

School of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON; Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Newborn Care, Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, ON.

Traditionally, hysteroscopy has been performed in the main operating room with the patient under general anaesthesia. Hysteroscopy performed in an office setting avoids the risks of general anaesthesia. The aim of this review was to evaluate the effectiveness of outpatient hysteroscopy compared with hysteroscopy performed in the operating room to diagnose and/or treat intrauterine pathology.

Hysteroscopy for treating subfertility associated with suspected major uterine cavity abnormalities.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 12 5;12:CD009461. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Academic Centre for General Practice, Cochrane Belgium, Kapucijnenvoer 33, blok J bus 7001, Leuven, Belgium, 3000.

Background: Observational studies suggest higher pregnancy rates after the hysteroscopic removal of endometrial polyps, submucous fibroids, uterine septum or intrauterine adhesions, which are present in 10% to 15% of women seeking treatment for subfertility.

Objectives: To assess the effects of the hysteroscopic removal of endometrial polyps, submucous fibroids, uterine septum or intrauterine adhesions suspected on ultrasound, hysterosalpingography, diagnostic hysteroscopy or any combination of these methods in women with otherwise unexplained subfertility or prior to intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Search Methods: We searched the following databases from their inception to 16 April 2018; The Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility Group Specialised Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Studies Online, ; MEDLINE, Embase , CINAHL , and other electronic sources of trials including trial registers, sources of unpublished literature, and reference lists.

[COMPARISON OF ULTRASOUND INVESTIGATION METHODS IN POSTMENOPAUSE].

Georgian Med News 2018 Oct(283):19-26

Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology named E.M. Lukyanova of the NAS of Ukraine.

The aim of the study is to improve the diagnostic approach in assessing the state of the endometrium with the help of ultrasonic endometrial diagnostics in accordance with the IETА criteria in combination with three-dimensional Doppler indices, calculating the volume of the endometrium, and the 3D reconstruction in postmenopausal women. 167 postmenopausal women underwent a 2D pelvic ultrasound examination and a combined three-dimensional complex pelvic ultrasound examination that included calculation of the volume of the endometrium, three-dimensional dopplerometric indices (vascularization index, blood flow index and vascularization ratio), and 3D-reconstruction mode. In the second stage, the patients underwent hysteroscopy/endometrial bipyroscopy with morphological evaluation of tissue samples, which retrospectively performed analysis of echographic and dopplerometric criteria in patients with benign changes in the endometrium and their comparison with atrophic endometrium.

Efficacy of Intrauterine Lidocaine Instillation in Reducing Pain during Endometrial Biopsy by Novak.

Pain Res Treat 2018 1;2018:9368298. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine, Thammasat University, Pathum Thani, Thailand.

Abnormal uterine bleeding in women aged 35 years or over is an important clinical sign of many gynecological conditions. The diagnoses of these conditions require the pathological report of the endometrial tissue. Outpatient-based endometrial biopsy is an excellent option compared to standard fractional uterine curettage or hysteroscopy with endometrial biopsy in providing a definite diagnosis for abnormal uterine bleeding as it is less painful and does not require high potency anesthesia.

European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery, 3000 Leuven, Belgium.

In order to offer our patients, the "state of the art" treatment in gynaecology, we need a structured teaching program for trainees concerning the gynaecological skills. In recent years, training and education in endoscopic surgery has been critically reviewed. Clinicians, both surgeons as gynaecologists who perform endoscopic surgery without proper training of the specific psychomotor skills, are at higher risk to increased patient morbidity and mortality.
