BACKGROUND: Hysterectomy rates are decreasing in many countries, and virtual reality (VR) simulators bring new training opportunities for residents. As coaching interventions while training on a simulated complex procedure represents a resource challenge, alternative strategies to improve surgical skills must be investigated. We sought to determine whether self-guided learning using a video-based self-assessment (SA) leads to improved surgical skills in laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH) on a VR simulator...

Background: Nabothian cysts are common benign cervical lesions in women of reproductive age. They usually occur due to childbirth or minor trauma; mostly are small and asymptomatic. However, huge nabothian cysts may have variable presentation and can even mimic malignancy thus, biopsy is recommended to rule out malignancy. The unusual presentation of nabothian cyst as uterine prolapse makes it a diagnostic challenge for management of the patient similar to the present case. Case report: We report a case of a huge nabothian cyst in a perimenopausal, multiparous woman who presented with complaints of something coming out of vagina suddenly after mild heavyweight lifting and pain abdomen...

BACKGROUND: Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) increases breast cancer (BC) risk, but cohort studies largely consider use only at enrollment. Evidence is limited on how changes in MHT use alter the magnitude of risk, and whether risk varies between invasive and in situ cancer, by histology or by hormone receptor status. METHODS: We investigated the roles of estrogen-alone therapy (ET) and estrogen plus progestin therapy (EPT) on BC risk overall, by histology and estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) status, and on incidence of in situ disease, in the NIH-AARP cohort...

BACKGROUND: Emergency peripartum hysterectomy (EPH) is a known remedy for saving women's lives when faced with the challenging situation of severe post partum hemorrhage not responsive to conservative management. However, EPH by its nature is also a traumatic birth event that causes serious physical, emotional and psychological harm. Unfortunately at St. Francis Hospital Nsambya nothing much is known about these experiences since no study has been undertaken and these women are not routinely followed up...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to identify clinical risk factors for increased post-void residual (PVR) volumes in patients undergoing vaginal prolapse surgery and to find out whether uterus preservation or prolapse hysterectomy influences the incidence of postoperative urinary retention. METHODS: This retrospective study included women who presented with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and planned prolapse surgery between January 2017 and July 2019. PVR was assessed postoperatively and increased amounts were defined as incomplete voiding with residual urine volume greater than 150 mL...

Placenta Accreta Spectrum (PAS) refers to the range of abnormally adhesive and penetrative placental tissue at a uterine scar. PAS is divided into accreta, increta, and percreta based on degree of myometrial invasion. Its incidence has increased, and PAS is now the leading indication for emergency peripartum hysterectomy in the setting of catastrophic hemorrhage from a non-separating placenta. The recent release of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) guidelines in 2018 coupled with the joint consensus statement from the Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) and European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) in 2020 reflect decades worth of diagnostic and therapeutic advances in this field...

BACKGROUND: Operating room planning is a complex task as pre-operative estimations of procedure duration have a limited accuracy. This is due to large variations in the course of procedures. Therefore, information about the progress of procedures is essential to adapt the daily operating room schedule accordingly. This information should ideally be objective, automatically retrievable and in real-time. Recordings made during endoscopic surgeries are a potential source of progress information...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Various surgical techniques have been described for vaginal vault prolapse repair, but the best surgical approach is still to be proven. The aim of this study is to report the long-term objective and subjective outcomes of women who underwent iliococcygeus fixation for the treatment of vaginal vault prolapse with a minimum follow-up of 10 years. METHODS: Women with symptomatic vaginal vault prolapse (Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification [POP-Q] stage ≥ 2) who had previously undergone hysterectomy for any reason were prospectively enrolled and treated with iliococcygeus fixation...

OBJECTIVES: Mouse models of ovarian cancer commonly transfer large numbers of tumor cells into the peritoneal cavity to establish experimental metastatic disease, which may not adequately model early metastatic spread from a primary tumor site. We hypothesized we could develop an ovarian cancer model that predictably represents micro-metastatic disease. METHODS: Murine ID8VEGF ovarian cancer cells were transduced to express enhanced luciferase (eLuc) to enable intravital detection of microscopic disease burden and injected beneath the ovarian bursa of C57Bl/6 mice...
