Are Fibroid and Bony Pelvis Characteristics Associated with Urinary and Pelvic Symptom Severity?

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Stanford University School of Medicine. Electronic address:

Background: Urinary and pelvic floor symptoms are often attributed to size and location of uterine fibroids. However, direct supporting evidence linking increased size to worsening symptoms is scant and limited to ultrasound evaluation of fibroids. Because management of fibroids is targeted towards symptomatic relief, identification of fibroid and pelvic characteristics associated with worse symptoms is vital to optimizing therapies and preventing needless interventions.

Evaluation of Red Degeneration of Uterine Leiomyoma with Susceptibility-weighted MR Imaging.

Magn Reson Med Sci 2018 Oct 1. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Radiology, Tokushima University.

Purpose: Red degeneration of uterine leiomyoma (RDL) is a hemorrhagic infarction caused by peripheral venous thrombosis. The peripheral high-intensity rim on T-weighted MRI is characteristic for RDL; however, it may not be observed at all the phases of RDL. Susceptibility-weighted MR sequences (SWS) have exquisite sensitivity to blood products, and we hypothesized that the low-intensity rim due to the T2* shortening effects of blood products may be more clearly demonstrated on SWS.

Characterization of subepithelial lesions of the stomach and esophagus by contrast-enhanced EUS: A retrospective study.

Endosc Ultrasound 2018 Sep 26. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Endoscopic Unit, Paoli Calmettes Institute, Marseille, France.

Background And Objectives: Subepithelial lesions (SELs) of the upper part of the digestive tract are rare, and it can be difficult to characterize them. Recently, contrast-enhanced endosonography (EUS) and elastometry have been reported as useful adjuncts to EUS and EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) in cases of pancreatic mass and lymph node involvement. The aim of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate whether contrast-enhanced EUS can discriminate benign submucosal lesions from malignant ones. Read More

Gynecol Oncol Rep 2018 Nov 30;26:33-36. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Medicine, Gyeongsang National University, Gyeongsang National University Changwon Hospital, Changwon, Republic of Korea.

Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare tumor comprising histologically benign smooth muscle cells and exhibits the same histological findings as a uterine myoma although in an extra-uterine location. Most BMLs occur several years after surgery for uterine myoma in women of reproductive age. Here, we report a case of pulmonary BML in a 54-year-old postmenopausal woman with no previous history of myomectomy or hysterectomy. Read More

Review of influential clinical factors in reducing the risk of unsuccessful MRI-guided HIFU treatment outcome of uterine fibroids.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2018 Sep;24(5):283-291

Department of Radiology, Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine, Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam.

Magnetic resonance imaging-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (MRI-guided HIFU) is an effective noninvasive treatment option for symptomatic uterine fibroids. However, tissue characteristics of uterine fibroids and technical limitations can limit the patient population that can benefit from this therapy. In this article, we present our literature review focusing on the influential clinical factors that might reduce the risk of an unsuccessful MRI-guided HIFU treatment outcome of uterine fibroids.

Adenomyosis: A Sonographic Diagnosis.

Radiographics 2018 Sep-Oct;38(5):1576-1589

From the Department of Radiology, Einstein Healthcare Network, 5501 Old York Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19141.

Adenomyosis is a common benign uterine condition and a frequent cause of pelvic pain in premenopausal women. Transvaginal US is now considered the primary imaging modality for the diagnosis of adenomyosis, and thus radiologists should be familiar with its sonographic appearance. US findings can be divided into three categories, which parallel the histology of adenomyosis: (a) ectopic endometrial glands and stroma, (b) muscular hyperplasia/hypertrophy, and (c) increased vascularity.

Preoperative diagnosis of atypical pelvic leiomyoma and sarcoma: the potential role of diffusion-weighted imaging.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2019 Jan 12;39(1):98-104. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

b Department of Radiology , Hospital Universitario Quiron Madrid , Madrid , Spain.

The objective of our study was to determine the utility of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (DWMR) to differentiate the atypical uterine leiomyomas and sarcomas, establishing a cut-off value of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) to rule out the malignancy. We performed a diagnostic accuracy retrospective study including 10 patients with pelvic sarcomas and 17 patients with leiomyomas. Atypical morphological features in magnetic resonance (MR) studies occurred in 58. Read More

The two FIGO systems for normal and abnormal uterine bleeding symptoms and classification of causes of abnormal uterine bleeding in the reproductive years: 2018 revisions.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2018 Dec 10;143(3):393-408. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

School of Women's and Children's Health, Royal Hospital for Women, University of New South Wales, Randwick, NSW, Australia.

Background: The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) systems for nomenclature of symptoms of normal and abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) in the reproductive years (FIGO AUB System 1) and for classification of causes of AUB (FIGO AUB System 2; PALM-COEIN) were first published together in 2011. The purpose was to harmonize the definitions of normal and abnormal bleeding symptoms and to classify and subclassify underlying potential causes of AUB in the reproductive years to facilitate research, education, and clinical care. The systems were designed to be flexible and to be periodically reviewed and modified as appropriate. Read More
