Examining indicators of early menopause following opportunistic salpingectomy: a cohort study from British Columbia, Canada.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2020 Feb 15. Epub 2020 Feb 15.

Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Division of Gynaecologic Oncology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC, Canada.

Background: The fallopian tube may often be the site of origin for the most common and lethal form of ovarian cancer, high-grade serous ovarian cancer. As a result, many colleges of obstetrics and gynecology, which include the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, are recommending surgical removal of the fallopian tube (bilateral salpingectomy) at the time of other gynecologic surgeries (particularly hysterectomy and tubal sterilization) in women at general population risk for ovarian cancer, collectively referred to as opportunistic salpingectomy. Previous research has illustrated no increased risk of complications after opportunistic salpingectomy. Read More

Prophylactic salpingectomy for the prevention of ovarian cancer: Who should we target?

Int J Cancer 2020 Feb 9. Epub 2020 Feb 9.

Women's College Research Institute, Women's College Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Ovarian cancer is the most fatal gynecologic malignancy (50% 5-year survival) due to a typically advanced stage at diagnosis and a high rate of recurrence. Chemoprevention options are limited, and few interventions have been shown to reduce cancer risk or mortality. Emerging data support the model that fallopian tubes are the site of origin for a proportion of high-grade serous cancers. Read More

Background: The patient scenario of a tertiary hospital changes with the implementation of various national programmes in any country. These programmes are conceived after understanding the felt need of the society. Though IUCD was available as an interval method of contraception in the past also and was meant to be effective for 10 years, the prerequisite to come again to the medical facility after 6 weeks of childbirth for insertion resulted in almost all patients to dropout and only the highly motivated would come on their own.

Safety of salpingectomy at time of delivery.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2019 Oct 1:1-6. Epub 2019 Oct 1.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Mayo Clinic , Rochester , MN , USA.

The most common methods of sterilization during cesarean delivery rely on excision of a mid-segment of the fallopian tube. Contemporary data suggest ovarian cancers may originate in the fimbriae of the fallopian tube; therefore, a strategy of prophylactic salpingectomy (SL) has been adopted during gynecologic surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety of SL compared to traditional mid-segment excision at time of cesarean and after vaginal delivery through change in perioperative hemoglobin (Hgb).

Authors:
Jaime Arruda

Menopause 2019 09;26(9):1059-1061

University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, Colorado.

Ovarian cancer is a common gynecologic malignancy with a poor prognosis and a lack of screening for women at average risk. Focus has therefore shifted toward strategies for risk-reducing surgery to prevent the development of ovarian cancer. This Practice Pearl describes the evidence supporting opportunistic salpingectomy at the time of hysterectomy or tubal sterilization as a strategy to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, the risks and benefits associated with the procedure, and the methods used.

Int J Surg Pathol 2020 Feb 25;28(1):99-101. Epub 2019 Jul 25.

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, Temple, TX, USA.

A 0.2-cm intramural focus composed predominantly of myelocytes and metamyelocytes, many CD3+, CD43+ T-lymphocytes, scanty CD20+ B-lymphocytes, rare mast cells, but no eosinophils or myeloblasts was incidentally found in a ligation specimen of the left fallopian tube. The myeloid cells were positive for chloroacetate esterase, myeloperoxidase, myeloid marker BM2, and CD43, and they were negative for CD30, CD34, CD117, ERG, and TDT. Read More

Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Desire for Reversal of Sterilization Among U.S. Women.

J Womens Health (Larchmt) 2019 06 17;28(6):812-819. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

1 Department of Sociology, Portland State University, Portland, Oregon.

Racial and ethnic disparities in rates of female sterilization, a prominent method of contraception, have been consistently observed for decades. Such disparities are also evident in subsequent desire for reversal of the procedure. Additional work is needed to better understand these patterns, particularly given the historical context of coercive sterilization patterns in minority and low-income women. Read More

Comparing options for women seeking permanent contraception in high-resource countries: a protocol for a systematic review.

Syst Rev 2019 03 26;8(1):74. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Contraception and Abortion Research Team-Groupe - de recherche sur l'avortement et la contraception (CART-GRAC), BC Women's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada.

Background: For women seeking permanent contraception, there are a variety of options available including surgical techniques such as tubal ligation or bilateral salpingectomy, in-clinic procedures such as hysteroscopic techniques using micro-inserts, or the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine contraceptive. Despite the various methods available for women who are seeking permanent contraception, there is not a review or decision-making tool that systematically brings together outcomes related to effectiveness, tolerability, adverse effects, non-contraceptive benefits, recovery, or accessibility: all of which are important for shared decision-making between patients and health care providers.

Methods: We registered our protocol [on Prospero: CRD42016038254] following PRISMA guidelines. Read More

ACOG Committee Opinion No. 774: Opportunistic Salpingectomy as a Strategy for Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Prevention.

Authors:

Obstet Gynecol 2019 04;133(4):e279-e284

Opportunistic salpingectomy may offer obstetrician-gynecologists and other health care providers the opportunity to decrease the risk of ovarian cancer in their patients who are already undergoing pelvic surgery for benign disease. By performing salpingectomy when patients undergo an operation during which the fallopian tubes could be removed in addition to the primary surgical procedure (eg, hysterectomy), the risk of ovarian cancer is reduced. Although opportunistic salpingectomy offers the opportunity to significantly decrease the risk of ovarian cancer, it does not eliminate the risk of ovarian cancer entirely. Read More

Hydrosalpinx - Salpingostomy, salpingectomy or tubal occlusion.

Best Pract Res Clin Obstet Gynaecol 2019 Aug 29;59:41-47. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Human Development and Health Academic Unit, Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK; Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Princess Anne Hospital, Level F, Coxford Road, Southampton, SO16 5YA, UK.

Tubal factors account for approximately 25% of cases of infertility, and the most severe manifestation of tubal disease is hydrosalpinx, accounting for 10-30% of tubal diseases. Hydrosalpinx is a distension or dilatation of the fallopian tube in the presence of a distal tubal occlusion, and the most common cause is pelvic inflammatory disease. Women with hydrosalpinges have lower implantation and pregnancy rates in assisted reproductive technology (ART), due to a combination of mechanical and chemical factors thought to disrupt the endometrial environment.

ACOG Practice Bulletin No. 208 Summary: Benefits and Risks of Sterilization.

Authors:

Obstet Gynecol 2019 03;133(3):592-594

Female and male sterilization are both safe and effective methods of permanent contraception used by more than 220 million couples worldwide (1). Approximately 600,000 tubal occlusions and 200,000 vasectomies are performed in the United States annually (2-4). For women seeking permanent contraception, sterilization obviates the need for user-dependent contraception throughout their reproductive years and provides an excellent alternative for those with medical contraindications to reversible methods.

The Trend, Feasibility, and Safety of Salpingectomy as a form of Permanent Sterilization.

J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2019 Nov - Dec;26(7):1363-1368. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, Texas (Drs. Kim, Berens, Chen, Gants, Swilinski, and Chang-Jackson).

Study Objective: To assess the change in the rate of laparoscopic salpingectomy for sterilization after the release of the November 2013 Society of Gynecologic Oncology Clinical Practice Statement and the January 2015 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Committee Opinion: Salpingectomy for Ovarian Cancer Prevention. We hypothesized there would be an increase in salpingectomy as a percentage of total laparoscopic sterilizations performed without an increase in complications when compared with conventional bilateral tubal ligation (BTL).

Design: A retrospective cohort study. Read More
