The objective of this study is to determine and discuss the causes of a giant endometrial polyp in a postmenopausal woman without hormone/drug use and to submit interesting clinical presentation. Here we report a seventy-year-old female patient who was admitted to our hospital with lower back pain. There were no other complaints from her. Physical examination was normal. For further examination, computed tomography was performed and a heterogeneous mass, with a diameter of 10 × 9 centimeters, was detected in the uterine cavity...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia concomitant endometrial polyps in pre- and post-menopausal women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 203 patients undergoing endometrial sampling before hysterectomy were evaluated in this retrospective study. Data recorded were age, gravidity, parity, body mass index (BMI: weight(kg)/height(m)2), endometrial thickness (ET), menopausal status, presence of adenomyosis and diabetes mellitus. RESULTS: Endometrial hyperplasia and polyps were detected in 13 patients...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether anti-hypertensive therapy is a risk factor for the onset of endometrial polyps in hypertensive women. METHODS: A sample of 305 hypertensive patients was analyzed. By applying multivariable logistic regression analysis, the odds of developing endometrial polyps relative to the known risk factors for endometrial polyps and to the class of anti-hypertensive drugs were calculated. RESULTS: The variables reaching significance after multivariable logistic regression analysis included the following: hypertension not-in-therapy (odds ratio 2...

OBJECTIVE: Small endometrial polyps are relatively common in asymptomatic women and may regress spontaneously. In symptomatic women, the finding of a small polyp (<1cm diameter) raises the question of the clinical pertinence and necessity of excision. Sparse data are available on the effectiveness of hysteroscopic excision of small polyps to manage abnormal uterine bleeding. The aim of this study was to assess outcome after hysteroscopic excision of small endometrial polyps in symptomatic patients...

OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to evaluate the role of hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy in women with unexplained infertility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Women with unexplained infertility were included in this prospective study, evaluated with transvaginal sonography and diagnostic hysteroscopy. Diagnostic hysteroscopy was performed between the 7th and 11th day of the cycle. The criteria for hysteroscopic findings were based on the cervical canal, uterine cavity, endometrium, visualization of the ostium tubae and lesions of the utero-tubal junction...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether antioxidant enzyme activities (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and glutathione reductase) and lipid hydroperoxide levels in patients with endometrial polyps are influenced by the changes in sex hormones (estradiol, progesterone, FSH, and LH) during the menstrual cycle and in postmenopause. STUDY DESIGN: The material consisted of blood and endometrial tissue specimens from women diagnosed with endometrial polyps...

OBJECTIVE: Functional polyps and chronic endometritis are among the most common abnormalities seen in the endometrium of patients with implantation failures and recurrent miscarriages. In this study we describe morphological vascular changes in endometrial samples from asymptomatic infertile patients and their association with chronic endometritis and polyp. STUDY DESIGN: We selected 435 asymptomatic infertility patients submitted to office-based diagnostic hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy...

PURPOSE: Endometrial polyp is the commenest pathology among the structural uterine abnormalities. In this study we compared the IVF outcomes of patients who underwent hysteroscopic endometrial polyp excision with respect to the time interval between the polyp resection and the subsequent IVF cycle. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 60 patients were divided into two groups according to the time interval between the hysteroscopic polyp resection and the start of the following IVF cycle...

In a retrospective study, examination of 431 infertile women (158 cases with endometriosis and 273 without endometriosis) showed a significantly increased frequency of endometrial polyps in patients with endometriotic infertility and no significant differences among different stages and locations of endometriosis. Hysteroscopic polypectomy and removal of endometriotic foci significantly increased the chances of achieving a pregnancy compared with those without polyps.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the pre-malignant and malignant potential of endometrial polyps and to assess whether different clinical parameters are associated with malignancy in the polyps of premenopausal women. METHODS: The clinical records of operative office hysteroscopic and resectoscopic procedures for endometrial polyps in 417 premenopausal women who attended Baskent University were examined over a retrospective period of 30 months. Only premenopausal patients were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Transcervical resection of endometrial polyps is usually performed in order to exclude atypic and/or malignant endometrial changes, to relieve abnormal uterine bleeding or to improve infertility. OBJECTIVE: To systematically explore the rationale of transcervical polyp resection. SEARCH STRATEGY: Electronic searches of MEDLINE, EMBASE and The Cochrane Library. SELECTION CRITERIA: Studies reporting the prevalence of premalignant and/or malignant tissue changes within endometrial polyps, as well as outcomes of endometrial polyp removal in terms of symptom relief and improved fertility were included...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To estimate the clinical effectiveness of transcervical resection of endometrial polyps. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial (Canadian Task Force classification I). SETTING: University teaching hospital. PATIENTS: One hundred fifty premenopausal women with endometrial polyps. INTERVENTIONS: Either transcervical resection of the polyp or observation for 6 months. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: There was no difference in periodic blood loss measured using the Pictorial Blood Assessment Chart between the study groups at 6-month follow-up...

OBJECTIVE: To report the occurrence of spontaneous regression of three endometrial polyps detected by hysteroscopy. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: A uterine imaging unit in an academic medical center. PATIENT(S): Three patients diagnosed as having an endometrial polyp of 5-8 mm on hysteroscopy. INTERVENTION(S): Patient deferral of the surgical procedure for several months. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Presence of a uterine polyp in the next hysteroscopy...

Endometrial polyps are benign lesions frequently identified in women with infertility or abnormal uterine bleeding in the reproductive and postmenopausal phases We report the striking observation that the numbers of activated mast cells expressing tryptase are increased more than sevenfold throughout the cycle in endometrial polyps (n = 20) compared with normal endometrium. This novel finding has important implications for growth, development, and symptoms associated with polyps in many different tissues.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the relationship among polyp site, number, diameter, and symptomatology in endometrial polyps in reproductive and postmenopausal women. STUDY DESIGN: One hundred fifty-five subjects with endometrial polyps were evaluated retrospectively. Sociodemographic characteristics, endometrial thickness, polyp number, diameter, and site were reviewed, and their relations with abnormal uterine bleeding were tested. RESULTS: A total of 36...

BACKGROUND: It was our intention to determine whether hysteroscopic polypectomy before intrauterine insemination (IUI) achieved better pregnancy outcomes than no intervention. METHODS: A total of 215 infertile women from the infertility unit of a university tertiary hospital with ultrasonographically diagnosed endometrial polyps (EP) undergoing IUI were randomly allocated to one of two pretreatment groups using an opaque envelope technique with assignment determined by a random number table...
