[On the Issue of Register of Patients of Gynecological Profile with Anemia Syndrome].

Probl Sotsialnoi Gig Zdravookhranenniiai Istor Med 2018 Nov;26(6):436-439

The Federal State Budget Educational Institution of Higher Education «The N. N. Burdenko Voronezh State Medical University» of the Ministry of Health of Russia, 394036, Voronezh, Russia.

The abundant menorrhagia is the most prevalent cause of iron-deficient conditions in women. Though diagnostic of anemia is a simple task deficiency of knowledge in the area of hematology favors spreading and aggravation of anemia processes. The implementation of the register of patients with anemia syndrome into practical activities of physicians of all specialties is a modern direction of studying the given pathology. Read More

Combined hormonal contraceptives for heavy menstrual bleeding.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Feb 11;2:CD000154. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Auckland, Private Bag 92019, Auckland, New Zealand, 1142.

Background: Menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) is an excessive blood loss that impairs a woman's quality of life, either physical, emotional, social or material. It is benign and not associated with pregnancy or any other gynaecological or systemic disease. Medical treatments used to reduce excessive menstrual blood loss (MBL) include prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors, antifibrinolytics, oral contraceptive pills, and other hormones. Read More

Uterine tumor resembling ovarian sex cord tumor: a clinicopathological and immunohistochemical analysis of two cases and a literature review.

J Int Med Res 2019 Feb 8:300060518821824. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

1 Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The Second Affiliated Hospital and Yuying Children's Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China.

A uterine tumor resembling an ovarian sex cord tumor (UTROSCT) is a rare type of neoplasm that is almost thoroughly differentiated towards ovarian sex cord elements. Because of abnormal uterine bleeding, a 64-year-old postmenopausal woman received total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Under a microscope, the tumor cells showed an anastomosing fascicular and trabecular pattern with a reticular architecture. Read More

Pathologic Changes in Uterine Leiomyomas After Extended Treatment With Ulipristal Acetate.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Sinai Health System (M.C.C.) Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, University of Toronto (M.C.C., E.L.) Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, St. Michael's Hospital (E.L.), Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Ulipristal acetate is a selective progesterone receptor modulator that acts on progesterone receptors in uterine muscle and endometrium. It is effective in reducing the size of uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) and in managing associated menorrhagia. Although ulipristal acetate-associated pathologic changes have been previously documented in the endometrium, it is unclear what morphology can be expected in posttreatment fibroids. Read More

Front Pharmacol 2018 15;9:1573. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Pharmacy, Shanghai Children's Medical Center, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China.

Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB), previously known as menorrhagia, is in place with heavy flow and longer lasting days of bleeding during menstrual period, sequentially leading to anemia. We reported a rare case of HMB in a 33-year-old patient after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), who presented with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), uremia and systemic lupus erythematosus before PCI. This patient received three times of hemodialysis weekly (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Read More

Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at Hereford County Hospital, Stonebow Road, Hereford, UK.

Fibroids are a condition commonly seen as part of routine gynaecological practice and generally present with menorrhagia, infertility, or pressure symptoms depending on their exact location. We report the case of a postmenopausal 57-year-old lady presenting with left-sided pain and frequency with a complex 15 cm mass mid pelvis and an adjacent additional 7 cm cyst but a risk of malignancy index suggesting benign pathology. She underwent total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) and right-sided salpingo-oophrectomy (RSO) on recommendation of the multidisciplinary team (MDT) and histology confirmed leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata.

Evaluation and management of heavy menstrual bleeding in adolescents: the role of the hematologist.

Sarah H O'Brien

Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program 2018 11;2018(1):390-398

Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH; and.

Heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) is frequently reported by adolescents. The role of the hematologist is threefold in evaluating such patients: (1) perform a clinical and laboratory evaluation for an underlying bleeding disorder on the basis of the degree of clinical suspicion, (2) identify and manage any concomitant iron deficiency, and (3) provide input to the referring provider regarding the management of HMB, particularly for patients with identified hemostatic defects. Several clues in the menstrual history should raise suspicion for an underlying bleeding disorder, such as menses lasting >7 days, menstrual flow which soaks >5 sanitary products per day or requires product change during the night, passage of large blood clots, or failure to respond to conventional therapies.

Thermal ablation of the endometrial lining of the uterus is a minimally-invasive technique for treatment of menorrhagia. We have previously presented a 915 MHz microwave triangular loop antenna for endometrial ablation. Uterine fibroids are benign pelvic tumors, of considerably different water content compared to normal uterus, and may change the shape of the uterus. Read More

Background: Delta granule storage pool deficiency (δ-SPD) is a rare platelet disorder in which a deficiency of platelet granules leads to poor aggregation, resulting in varying clinical bleeding phenotypes. Children with δ-SPD have variable laboratory results, making the proper diagnosis and evaluation controversial.

Objectives: To describe the demographic and laboratory trends of this population and to assess the value of electron microscopy in diagnostic evaluation and its correlation to bleeding symptoms. Read More

Increased LDH5/LDH1 ratio in preoperative diagnosis of uterine sarcoma with inconclusive MRI and LDH total activity but suggestive CT scan: a case report.

BMC Womens Health 2018 Oct 19;18(1):169. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Gynecology and Obstetrics Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive Sciences and Dentistry, School of Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Via Sergio Pansini 5, 80131, Naples, Italy.

In the preoperative evaluation of suspect uterine masses, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) total activity are referred to as the most effective tools, while computed tomography scan (CT) and LDH isoenzymes are less considered in literature.

Case Presentation: A 46 year old woman was admitted to our department with a large uterine mass. Read More

Safety Profile of Levonorgestrel: A Disproportionality Analysis of Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System (Faers) Database.

J Reprod Infertil 2018 Jul-Sep;19(3):152-156

Department of Community Medicine, M.S. Ramaiah Medical College, Bangalore, India.

Background: Levonorgestrel is most commonly utilized as an emergency oral contraceptive. Little is known and/or studied about the adverse effects of levonorgestrel, therefore, current investigation was aimed to generate signal for unreported adverse drug reactions of levonorgestrel using disproportionality analysis in food and drug administration adverse events reporting system database.

Methods: In FDA Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS) database, all adverse event reports for levonorgestrel between January 2006 to June 2015 were identified and disproportionality analysis was conducted for selected adverse events of levonorgestrel using Reporting Odds Ratio, Proportional Reporting Ratio and Information Component with 95% confidence interval.
