In order to ensure that ovarian cancer patients access appropriate treatment to improve the outcome of this disease, accurate characterization before any surgery on ovarian pathology is essential. The International Ovarian Tumor Analysis (IOTA) collaboration has standardized the approach to the ultrasound description of adnexal pathology. A prospectively(More)

OBJECTIVES To evaluate the diagnostic performance of the IOTA (International Ovarian Tumor Analysis group) (clinically oriented three-step strategy for preoperative characterization of ovarian masses when ultrasonography is performed by examiners with different background training and experience. METHODS A 27-month prospective multicenter cross-sectional(More)
BACKGROUND Correct characterisation of ovarian tumours is critical to optimise patient care. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the International Ovarian Tumour Analysis (IOTA) logistic regression model (LR2), ultrasound Simple Rules (SR), the Risk of Malignancy Index (RMI) and subjective assessment (SA) for preoperative(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the visibility of cesarean section (CS) scars by transvaginal sonography (TVS) in pregnant women, to apply a standardized approach for measuring CS scars and to test its reproducibility throughout the course of pregnancy. METHODS In this observational cohort study, 320 consecutive pregnant women with a previous cesarean delivery(More)
Introduction. Endometriosis is one of the most common benign disorders which affects 10-15% of all women in reproductive age. The association between endometriosis and ovarian cancer has been frequently described in the medical literature. Purpose. To evaluate the literature for evidence of a correlation between endometriosis and ovarian cancer. Method. the(More)
Recruitment to obstetrics and gynaecology has fallen dramatically over the last decade. Surveys of medical students and junior doctors have suggested that apart from work/life imbalance, other factors such as poor job satisfaction and an unfriendly environment can significantly affect the choice of career. We conducted a questionnaire survey for Yorkshire(More)

OBJECTIVES To describe changes in Cesarean section (CS) scars longitudinally throughout pregnancy, and to relate initial scar measurements, demographic variables and obstetric variables to subsequent changes in scar features and to final pregnancy outcome. METHODS In this prospective observational study we used transvaginal sonography (TVS) to examine the(More)
STUDY QUESTION How does a protocol based on a single serum progesterone measurement perform as a triage tool in women with pregnancy of unknown location (PUL) in comparison to protocols based on serial hCG measurement? SUMMARY ANSWER Triage based on the logistic regression model M4 (using initial hCG and hCG ratio (48 h/0 h)) classifies the majority of(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a model to predict the success of a trial of vaginal birth after Cesarean section (VBAC) based on sonographic measurements of Cesarean section (CS) scar features, demographic variables and previous obstetric history. METHODS We used transvaginal sonography (TVS) to examine the CS scar of 320 consecutive pregnant women. TVS was carried(More)
