  • Predictive serum markers for unexplained infertility in child-bearing aged women. [Journal Article]
    Am J Reprod Immunol 2020; 83(1):e13194Qu T, Yan M, … Gu J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Examination of serum-based protein profile changes could help to identify child-bearing aged women at risk of UI. This would enable early detection and facilitate development of clinical strategies to treat UI and guide their planned parenthood. It may also give clues to pathogeneses of the condition of test subjects.
  • Sonographic Evaluation for Endometriosis in Routine Pelvic Ultrasound. [Journal Article]
    J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2019Piessens S, Edwards A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Traditionally, only pathologies of the uterus and ovaries are assessed during a routine pelvic ultrasound. Here we demonstrate that the routine ultrasound examination can easily be extended beyond the uterus and ovaries into the posterior and anterior pelvic compartments to evaluate structural mobility and to look for deep infiltrating endometriotic nodules, wherewith women suffering from DIE can benefit from a preoperative diagnosis and subsequently, a single, well-planned procedure in the hands of a well-prepared team.
  • StatPearls: Stages of Labor [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Hutchison Julia J Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine Mahdy Heba H Hutchison Justin J Kaiser Modesto BOOK
  • Labor is the process through which a fetus and placenta are delivered from the uterus through the vagina.[1] Human labor divides into three stages. The first stage is further divided into two phases. Successful labor involves three factors, which include maternal efforts and uterine contractions, fetal characteristics, and pelvic anatomy.[1] This triad is classically referred to as the passenger,…
  • Diagnosing adenomyosis with MRI: a prospective study revisiting the junctional zone thickness cutoff of 12 mm as a diagnostic marker. [Journal Article]
    Eur Radiol 2019; 29(12):6971-6981Tellum T, Matic GV, … Lieng M
  • CONCLUSIONS: JZmax was not correlated with adenomyosis in the present premenopausal study population, but direct signs of adenomyosis such as irregularities of the JZ provided a good diagnostic accuracy.• Measuring the junctional zone thickness is of limited value for diagnosing adenomyosis with MRI and should not be used for diagnosing adenomyosis in premenopausal women with moderate disease severity. • An irregular appearance of the junctional zone, the presence of myometrial cysts, and adenomyoma appear to provide the highest specificity for diagnosing adenomyosis. • A consensus for the definition and reading of the junctional zone is needed.
  • Mini-invasive transvaginal repair of isthmocele: a video case report. [Case Reports]
    Fertil Steril 2019; 111(4):828-830Candiani M, Ferrari SM, … Salvatore S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Symptomatic isthmocele can be treated surgically via a hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, or vaginal approach, depending on the clinical findings and the skill set and comfort level of the surgeon. Unfortunately, there is no consensus about the ideal surgical approach. The hysteroscopic approach has been demonstrated to be effective for the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding; however, it does not strengthen the uterine wall and it has a risk of bladder injury. The laparoscopic approach provides good anatomic results, but it requires general anesthesia and may be associated with bladder injury. The transvaginal approach appears to be a feasible, effective, and safe modality to repair the uterine defect and to restore the original thickness of the myometrium. It is a minimally invasive, scarless, and low-cost procedure. It ensures quick recovery and a relatively pain-free postoperative course with early return to normal function.
