The combined use of endometrial ablation or resection and levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system in women with heavy menstrual bleeding: A systematic review.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2021 Jun 24. Epub 2021 Jun 24.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Máxima Medical Center, Veldhoven, The Netherlands.

Introduction: Despite the fact that endometrial ablation/resection is a very successful treatment for women with heavy menstrual bleeding, re-intervention with additional surgery is needed in 12-25% of the cases. Introducing a levonorgestrel-intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) immediately after ablation could preserve the integrity of the uterine cavity and suppress the regenerated or non-ablated endometrial tissue. Therefore, this combined treatment can perhaps lower the re-intervention rate. Read More

Tubal factor infertility and its impact on reproductive freedom of African American women.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI.

In the past, the reproductive freedom of African American women was hindered by forced reproduction and sterilization campaigns. Unfortunately, these involuntary practices have now mostly been replaced by inequality because of disproportionate tubal factor infertility rates within African American communities. Our work aimed to describe the inequities in increased rates of pelvic inflammatory disease and tubal factor infertility as it relates to African American women. Read More

The impact of opportunistic salpingectomy on ovarian cancer mortality and healthcare costs: a call for universal insurance coverage.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2021 Mar 31. Epub 2021 Mar 31.

The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center, UC Health, Cincinnati, OH.

Background: Opportunistic salpingectomy at the time of hysterectomy or as an alternative to bilateral tubal ligation may reduce the incidence of ovarian cancer, because it has been demonstrated that most serous ovarian cancers begin in the fallopian tubes. However, salpingectomy at the time of sterilization is not always financially covered by third-party payers, and this represents a barrier to adoption. Routine salpingectomy has become more common but is not always practiced at the time of hysterectomy. Read More

[Vasectomy : Current information].

Urologe A 2021 Apr 18;60(4):523-532. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Klinik für Urologie und Urochirurgie, Universitätsmedizin Mannheim, Theodor-Kutzer-Ufer 1-3, 68167, Mannheim, Deutschland.

Vasectomy is considered to be the simplest, most effective and cheapest method of fertility control in men, with a significantly lower risk of morbidity and mortality compared to tubal ligation in women. Patient informed consent is particularly important and should include potential irreversibility, surgical options, anesthesia, possible complications as well as postoperative behavior and the need for re-evaluation. There are different access routes available with conventional and no-scalpel vasectomy as well as different techniques for closing the ends of the vas deferens. Read More
