Authors:
J Li

Zhonghua Yi Shi Za Zhi 2018 Sep;48(5):287-294

Basic Medical College of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou, 510405, China.

From 1977 to 1982, under the unified deployment of the Ministry of Health, census and treatment of uterine prolapse and urinary fistula were generally carried out in various places. Compared with the first census, the organizational collaboration is more effective, professional, and play a greater role. After that, surgical treatment can be applied to a wider range, and tens of thousands of critically patients can be treated and recovered. Read More

Comparisons of Functional Apical Support After Sacral Hysteropexy Versus Sacral Colpopexy: A Cadaveric Study.

Female Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

From the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

Assessment of morphological changes and steroid receptors in the uteri of postmenopausal women.

Histol Histopathol 2018 Nov 14:18063. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Histology and Developmental Biology, Pomeranian Medical University, Szczecin, Poland.

Introduction: The morphology of the endometrium constantly changes in the reproductive period, depending on the levels of ovarian steroid hormones, and undergoes atrophic changes during menopause as a result of their insufficiency. The purpose of this study was to analyze morphological and morphometric changes in the mucous and muscle layers of the uterine wall in postmenopausal women, and to assess localization and number of cells showing the expression of steroid hormone receptors, namely estrogen receptor α (ER-α), progesterone receptor (PR), and androgen receptor (AR) in glandular epithelial cells and smooth muscle cells in particular groups of women.

Material And Methods: The study material consisted of uterine specimens sectioned across the full thickness of the uterine wall, and embedded in 164 paraffin blocks. Read More

Transposition of Cardinal Ligaments for Stages II-III Uterine Prolapse: A Minimally Invasive Procedure.

Gynecol Minim Invasive Ther 2018 Jan-Mar;7(1):36-39. Epub 2018 Feb 16.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rafic Hariri University Hospital, Beirut, Lebanon.

Uterine and other pelvic organ prolapse (POP) are becoming more frequently encountered due to increased life expectancy among menopausal women. Traditionally, most surgical procedures included hysterectomy as an integral part of the management. POP might, however, though less commonly, affect women not willing to accept hysterectomy, especially young females who did not complete their family. Read More

Pelvic organ prolapse in Caucasian and East Asian women: a comparative study.

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2018 Sep 23. Epub 2018 Sep 23.

Sydney Medical School Nepean, University of Sydney, Nepean Hospital, Penrith, NSW, Australia.

Objective: Ethnicity has been suggested to be a significant risk factor for pelvic organ prolapse (POP); yet, pelvic organ descent in different ethnic groups, especially in Asian populations, is not well studied. The aim of this study was to compare prolapse stages, pelvic organ descent and hiatal dimensions between East Asian and Caucasian women presenting with symptoms of POP.

Methods: This was a prospective observational study of East Asian and Caucasian women presenting with symptoms of POP to a tertiary urogynecology clinic in, respectively, Hong Kong and Sydney. Read More

Uterine prolapse: a hidden tragedy of women in rural Nepal.

Int Urogynecol J 2018 Nov 21;29(11):1575-1578. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

School of Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Health, Queensland University of Technology, Q Block (Level 9), Brisbane, QLD, 4000, Australia.

Uterine Prolapse (UP) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity among women in low-income countries like Nepal. More than 1 million women in Nepal suffer from this condition and most of them belong to the reproductive age. The cause and consequence for UP in Nepalese women is mainly gender discrimination.

Traditional Chinese medicine decreases the obstructive uropathy risk in uterovaginal prolapse: A nationwide population-based study.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Sep;97(38):e12369

Departments of Chinese Medicine, Urology, Medical Research, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Anesthesiology.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a popular treatment for voiding dysfunction in Eastern countries. However, no previous studies have investigated the effects of TCM on preventing obstructive uropathy in uterovaginal prolapse women. We conducted a large-scale nationwide population-based cohort study to investigate the relationship between TCM and obstructive uropathy in uterovaginal prolapse women. Read More

Overcoming barriers to vaginal hysterectomy: An analysis of perioperative outcomes

J Turk Ger Gynecol Assoc 2019 02 13;20(1):8-14. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Danbury Hospital – Western Connecticut Health Network, Connecticut, USA

Objective: To determine perioperative outcome differences in patients undergoing vaginal hysterectomy based on uterine weight, vaginal delivery, and menopausal state.

Material And Methods: Retrospective chart review of 452 patients who underwent vaginal hysterectomy performed by a single surgeon. Patients’ age, vaginal delivery, uterine weight, previous pelvic surgery, previous cesarean delivery, removal of ovaries were compared, as well as estimated blood loss (EBL), operating room time (ORT), length of stay, intraoperative complications and postoperative complications.

Prepubertal Genital Bleeding: Examination and Differential Diagnosis in Pediatric Female Patients.

J Emerg Med 2018 10 28;55(4):e97-e100. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Columbia School of Medicine, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina.

Background: Prepubertal genital bleeding can be caused by a variety of etiologies including trauma, infection, structural, hematologic disorders, precocious puberty, and malignancy. Urethral prolapse can be seen in prepubescent girls due to a relative estrogen deficiency. Urethral prolapse classically presents with urethral mass and vaginal bleeding, often associated with constipation. Read More

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rochester Regional Health, 1425 Portland Avenue, Rochester, NY 14621, USA.

Cervical cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy worldwide and the third most common gynecologic cancer in the USA. Improved screening methods such as liquid-based cytology accompanied by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) co-testing have contributed to a declining incidence of cervical cancer. There are approximately 13,000 new cases per year in the United States, accounting for 4200 deaths (Siegel et al. Read More

Gynecology and Obstetrics, Department of Surgical Sciences, City of Health and Science, University of Torino, Torino, Italy.

Objective: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a "simplified" laparoscopic sacropexy approach.
