BACKGROUND: The efficacy and safety of oral ulipristal acetate for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids before surgery are uncertain.

METHODS: We randomly assigned women with symptomatic fibroids, excessive uterine bleeding (a score of >100 on the pictorial blood-loss assessment chart [PBAC, an objective assessment of blood loss, in which monthly scores range from 0 to >500, with higher numbers indicating more bleeding]) and anemia (hemoglobin level of ≤10.2 g per deciliter) to ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the reproductive outcomes after laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion (LUAO) and uterine artery embolization (UAE) in women with symptomatic fibroids.

DESIGN: Prospective, clinical multicentric study.

SETTING: Endoscopic center in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at a hospital in the Czech Republic.

PATIENT(S): Thirty-eight pregnant women after LUAO and 20 pregnant women after UAE.

INTERVENTION(S): Laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion and UAE.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical results of surgical and endovascular treatment of uterine myomas in young women.

STUDY DESIGN: In a university-affiliated, tertiary care center a prospective trial was conducted. Sixty-three women, wishing to retain fertility, with intramural fibroid(s) larger than 4 cm, were randomly selected either for uterine artery embolization or myomectomy. Invasiveness, efficacy, and complications of both procedures were compared.

RESULTS: Thirty embolizations ...

The purpose of this study was to compare the midterm results of a radiological and surgical approach to uterine fibroids. One hundred twenty-one women with reproductive plans who presented with an intramural fibroid(s) larger than 4 cm were randomly selected for either uterine artery embolization (UAE) or myomectomy. We compared the efficacy and safety of the two procedures and their impact on patient fertility. Fifty-eight embolizations and 63 myomectomies (42 laparoscopic, 21 open) ...

AIM: Uterine artery embolization for fibroids is a controversial issue for women with incomplete reproductive plans. Ovarian failure and uterine infection are the most dreaded complications of this procedure. The purpose of the present study was to assess the types and the frequency of intrauterine abnormalities and the histological features of the endometrium after embolization.

METHODS: Uterine artery embolization was performed on 51 women (average age 34.5 years) with intramural ...

Leiomyoma with bizarre nuclei (LBN) is an uncommon variant of uterine smooth muscle neoplasm. Involvement of fumarate hydratase (FH) has been suggested in the pathogenesis of a subset of LBN. The goal of our study is to assess the clinicopathological, morphological, immunohistochemical and molecular findings focusing on FH in LBNs (n = 108) and compare it with the findings in usual leiomyomas (UL; n = 50) and leiomyosarcomas (LMS; n = 42). Immunohistochemically, loss of FH expression was ...

BACKGROUND: The object of this study was to examine the occurrence of iron deficiency anemia in women after spontaneous delivery, changes in clinical and laboratory indicators of anemia in postpartum period and their possible control by administration of peroral antianemics.

METHODS: Ninety pregnant women at 35th to 39th week of gestation were randomly divided into three groups and extensively examined in a laboratory. After delivery, the mothers were examined four times at monthly ...

Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is an effective and accepted treatment option for symptomatic uterine leiomyoma. Between 2000 and 2005, 91 women were treated using this method, and were prospectively followed at our institution. Twenty of them subsequently underwent surgery. One of these patients was subjected to four surgical procedures. We describe the pathological findings of 23 surgical specimens obtained from these 20 patients. The embolic material used consisted of tris-acryl ...

PurposeTo compare outcomes of two different types of occlusive therapy of uterine fibroids.MethodsWomen with fibroid(s) unsuitable for laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) were treated with uterine artery embolization (UAE) or laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion (LUAO).ResultsBefore the procedure, patients treated with UAE (n = 100) had a dominant fibroid greater in size (68 vs. 48 mm) and a mean age lower (33.1 vs. 34.9 years) than surgically treated patients (n = 100). After 6 months, mean ...

Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a minimally invasive procedure with large symptomatic potential in treatment of women with uterine leiomyomas. Due to specificities of this method and possible complications the appropriate indication is crucial. Patient' symptoms, age, plans for pregnancy, and surgical and reproductive history play a major role in decision-making regarding appropriate subjects for UAE. Close cooperation between the gynecologist and the interventional radiologist is ...

Aim. To determine if hormonal treatment induces apoptosis in uterine fibroids. Methods. Immunohistochemical examination of fibroid tissue, using avidin-biotin complex and cleaved caspase-3 antibody for detecting apoptosis, was performed in premenopausal women who underwent 12-week treatment with oral SPRM (6 patients with 5 mg and 5 patients with 10 mg of ulipristal acetate per day) or gonadoliberin agonist (GnRHa, 17 patients) and subsequent myomectomy or hysterectomy for symptomatic ...

We report a case of voluminous placental chorioangioma diagnosed by ultrasound and color Doppler imaging during the 20th week of pregnancy. The size of the tumor was enlarging progressively (up to 10 cm in the 32nd week), and during this time the signs of fetal intrauterine volume overload and blood cell consumption, such as cardiomegaly, umbilical vein dilation, hydramnios, anemia, and thrombocytopenia, were observed. In the 32nd week of pregnancy, the signs of uteroplacental ...
