Evaluating the feasibility of acoustic radiation force impulse shear wave elasticity imaging of the uterine cervix with an intracavity array: a simulation study.

IEEE Trans Ultrason Ferroelectr Freq Control 2013 Oct;60(10):2053-64

The uterine cervix softens, shortens, and dilates throughout pregnancy in response to progressive disorganization of its layered collagen microstructure. This process is an essential part of normal pregnancy, but premature changes are associated with preterm birth. Clinically, there are no reliable noninvasive methods to objectively measure cervical softening or assess cervical microstructure. Read More

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2007 Apr;29(4):427-32

Medical Physics Department, Royal United Hospital, Bath, UK.

Objective: This safety study was designed to investigate tissue heating close to the surface of transvaginal ultrasound transducers, with the objective of assessing the validity of manufacturing safety standards set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

Methods: The transducers investigated in this study were held in contact with a layered soft-tissue mimicking material (TMM), and the temperature increase was measured at various depths using a miniature thermocouple. The temperature rise at 200 s was recorded, and the measured profiles of temperature rise with depth were compared with profiles predicted from both analytical and numeric models. Read More

Laparoscopic-assisted transvaginal myomectomy.

J Am Assoc Gynecol Laparosc 1997 Feb;4(2):241-6

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Bayonne Hospital, New Jersey, USA.

We conducted a retrospective review of 21 combined laparovaginal myomectomies to treat extensive and deeply infiltrating fundal and posterior wall leiomyomata. Laparoscopy confirmed the size, number, and position of leiomyomata, permitted intramyometrial vasopressin infiltration, and allowed partial enucleation of large and deep myomata. Posterior colpotomy permitted delivery of myomata and uteri, and uterine reconstruction by conventional suturing performed transvaginally. Read More
