Important role in the formation and development of myomatous nodes is given to the abnormality of excretion and metabolism of progesterone and estrogens, as well as the ratio of their fractions, leading to morphological changes in myometrium.

Uterine Fibroids (UFs), or leiomyomas, represent the most frequent pelvic tumor in reproductive-aged women. Although of benign origin, UFs decrease fertility and cause significant reproductive dysfunctions. Compared to normal myometrium, UFs are characterized by a clinical and molecular heterogeneity as demonstrated by the presence of multiple genetic alterations and altered signaling pathways.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Therapy in the Uterine Fibroid: A Clinical Case Study of Poor Heating Efficacy.

Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2019 07;2019:2500-2503

A clinical case study of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment in the uterine fibroid was conducted. During the therapy, poor heating efficacy was observed which could be attributed to several factors such as the local perfusion rate, patient-specific anatomy or changes in acoustic parameters of the ultrasound field. In order to determine the cause of the diminished heating, perfusion analyses and ultrasound simulations were conducted using the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data from the treatment. Read More

Incidental sonographic detection of bladder cancer in a woman with large uterine fibroids: significance and lessons learned.

Clin Imaging 2020 May 7;61:1-3. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Division of Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, NY 10065, United States of America. Electronic address:

Uterine leiomyomas are the most common solid pelvic tumors in pre-menopausal women and typically present with abnormal uterine bleeding and/or symptoms of mass effect. A potential consequence of the space-occupying nature of these lesions is the decreased sensitivity for the detection of adjacent pelvic pathology, which can be particularly problematic given the overlap in symptoms between fibroids and other pelvic disease. We present the case of a woman with a large uterine fibroid who had multiple imaging evaluations before undergoing uterine fibroid embolization and on immediate follow-up sonography was discovered to have early-stage bladder cancer.

Uterine intravenous leiomyomatosis with an isolated large metastasis to the right atrium: a case report.

Diagn Pathol 2020 Jan 11;15(1). Epub 2020 Jan 11.

Department of Pathology, Saitama Medical, University International Medical Center, 1397-1 Yamane, Hidaka-City, Saitama, 350-1298, Japan.

Background: An intravenous leiomyomatosis is a special type of uterine leiomyoma characterized by the formation of benign leiomyomatous tissue within the vascular wall. Although histologically benign, intracardiac metastasis can lead to circulatory failure, and death, if untreated. Herein, we report on a case of a uterine intravenous leiomyomatosis with an isolated large adherent metastasis in the right atrium of the heart. Read More

Leiomyosarcoma is the most frequent subtype of the deadly uterine sarcoma and shares many common clinical grounds with leiomyoma, which is in turn the most common solid benign uterine neoplasm. With the recent progress in minimally invasive techniques for managing leiomyomas, accurate preoperative diagnosis of uterine masses has become the most important selection criterion for the safest therapeutic option. Therefore, different imaging modalities would be playing a key role in management of uterine masses. Read More
