A hormonal effusion?
A 51-year-old woman presented to the chest clinic with history of progressive dyspnoea and dry cough for 8 weeks. Her past medical history was remarkable for sleeve gastrectomy 3 months ago, which resulted in loss of three stones. She also reported migraines for which she had an implanted occipital nerve stimulator and had undergone hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy 18 months ago. Other history included hypothyroidism, hypertension and depression. Her medications were Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), Nifedipine, Losartan, Levothyroxine, Lansoprazole, Simvastatin and Fluoxetine. She had smoked fo...

Hormone therapy for endometrial cancer targets connective tissue, not tumor cells
In this study, we found that all of the progesterone anti-tumor effects are in fact mediated through the stroma, even though it makes up a minor fraction of the tumor. I believe these exciting findings are going to surprise the clinical community and change the way people look at patterns of hormone-receptor expression in endometrial tumors." The results of the three-year study, done using a specially developed laboratory model created by Memarzadeh's team that closely mimics human endometrial cancer, appear in the early online edition of Cancer Research, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Association for Cance...

Molecular pathogenesis of endometrial cancers in patients with Lynch syndrome
CONCLUSIONSHyperplasia, particularly CAH, is part of the preinvasive spectrum of disease in LS‐associated EC, as indicated by the presence of complex hyperplasia and CAH in cases of LS. Although loss of PTEN is common in both LS and sporadic EC cases, there was a lack of additional mutations in LS‐associated EC cases. This suggests that in the context of the mismatch repair defects in LS, fewer additional molecular changes are required to progress from preinvasive lesions to cancer.

Potential For Novel Treatments Of Uterine Fibroids
Uterine leiomyomata, or fibroids, are benign tumours that nevertheless affect the health of millions of women. They may cause, for instance, pain, bleeding and infertility. Fibroids are also the most common reason for a hysterectomy; for example, some 8,000 hysterectomies are made in Finland each year. Scientists at the Academy of Finland's Centre of Excellence in Cancer Genetics Research have identified the molecular mechanisms underlying the onset of common leiomyomata.

Reproductive Factors and Kidney Cancer Risk in 2 US Cohort Studies, 1993-2010
Clinical and experimental findings suggest that female hormonal and reproductive factors could influence kidney cancer development. To evaluate this association, we conducted analyses in 2 large prospective cohorts (the National Institutes of Health–AARP Diet and Health Study (NIH-AARP), 1995–2006, and the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial (PLCO), 1993–2010).

Urinary retention following laparoscopic gynaecological surgery with or without 4% icodextrin anti‐adhesion solution
ConclusionsIn this non‐randomised study, there were significantly more women with post‐operative urinary retention when icodextrin was used; however, this did not contribute to an extended hospital admission. While there may be confounding factors, women receiving icodextrin should be warned of the possibility of urinary retention post‐operatively, but that this is unlikely to affect their stay in hospital.

Why Are Medical Trials Necessary For The Advancement Of Medicine?
Why are medical trials necessary? It’s a question that’s relatively easy to answer, after all medications cannot be prescribed by doctors unless they have been subjected to clinical trials. Studies are carried out on promising new treatments to provide answers regarding their effectiveness and how they are absorbed by the body. Carefully conducted clinical trials provide pharmaceutical companies with the safest and most effective way of ensuring new treatments work, and volunteers are always required to help to develop the medicines of the future. There are many benefits to taking part in a clinical trial. In a...

LAVH for Fibroids and finally I can start living again! Sarah’s Story
I’m 46 years old, work full-time, have one daughter who is 20. I’m married to an Italian and live in Italy. I love sport. I am one of those people who is never ill! I’ve never taken one day sick in my life. About 4 years ago I started having really bad menstrual problems, haemorrages and if you’re on holiday it’s not funny. After becoming anaemic I finally decided to go to a gynaecologist who told me I had big fibroids and the best thing was a hysterectomy. I managed to convince them to implant a IUD that released progesterone and the bleeding reduced. Unfortunately in the last year my lifesty...

Constitutive activity of Erk1/2 and NF-κB protects human endometrial stromal cells from death receptor-mediated apoptosis.
Abstract Apoptosis in the human endometrium plays an essential role for endometrial receptivity and early implantation. A dysbalance of pro- and anti-apoptotic events in the secretory endometrium seems to be involved in implantation disorders and consecutive pregnancy complications. However, little is known about the mechanisms regulating apoptosis-sensitivity in the human endometrium. Therefore this study was performed to identify molecular mechanisms underlying the resistance toward apoptosis in human endometrial stromal cells (ESCs). Human ESCs were isolated from hysterectomy specimens and used as undifferentiat...

Effect of dentine matrix proteins on human endometrial adult stem-like cells: In vitro regeneration of odontoblasts cells
Conclusions: Study results indicated that odontoblastic differentiation of endometrial stem cells can be induced by extracellular matrix proteins (e.g. dNCPs). The capacity of endometrial stem-like cells to differentiate into odontoblast-like cells under specific conditions gives new insights into the mechanism of odontogenesis and highlights the potential of such approaches for further research on dental tissue regeneration.

Ultrasound detection of lacunae-like image of a cesarean scar pregnancy in the first trimester.
We describe a case of cesarean scar pregnancy that was initially misdiagnosed on the basis of current ultrasonographic criteria. Ultrasonographic images at 9 weeks' gestation demonstrated no gestational sac but did show a bulging mass in uterine wall with irregularly shaped hypoechoic areas, which resembled the lacunae in placenta previa. Color Doppler imaging demonstrated that the lacunae-like areas were richly perfused. Cesarean scar pregnancy was finally diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging, which showed a lack of myometrium in the lower anterior uterine wall with placental invasion. Histological examination of the...

Primary pure squamous cell carcinoma of the endometrium: a case report.
Abstract Because primary pure squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the endometrium is very rare and its frequency is unknown, the author reviewed 142 archival hysterectomy specimens of endometrial cancers. As the results, one case of primary pure SCC was found. Thus, the frequency of SCC of the endometrium was 0.7% of all endometrial malignancies in our institution. The patient was a 72-year-old woman presenting with uterine bleeding. Uterine curettage biopsy and uterine discharge cytology revealed SCC. No malignancy was seen in cervical biopsy. Radical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, omentectomy and lym...

Understanding Stress Incontinence
Stress incontinence is one of the most common forms of incontinence and it’s estimated that three million people in the UK are affected although this number may be conservative because some won’t mention it to their doctors. It also becomes more common in women as they age and go through the menopause. Estimates suggest that 1 in 5 women over 40 may suffer some degree of stress incontinence. As we eat and drink the kidneys produce urine which passes through the ureter tubes to the bladder. The amount we eat and drink influences the amount of urine that is made. As the bladder fills with urine it swells until we feel a ...

It’s nearly four weeks since I had a vaginal hystectomy and anterior repair. My recovery has been good, some days feeling really well, others at the end of the day can hardly get up the stairs to bed, really exhausted. Not worried about this as I’m sure in time will improve. However what does worry me is that I have developed constant nagging, dragging pain in my right ovary area. Not agonising, more wearying as it doesn’t get less or more.
