Ovarian cancer remains the most common cause of gynecologic cancer-related death among women in developed countries. Nevertheless, subgroups of ovarian cancer patients experience relatively longer survival. Efforts to identify prognostic factors that characterize such patients are ongoing, with investigational areas including tumor characteristics, surgical(More)
We have refined the technique for isolating and propagating cultures of primary ovarian carcinosarcoma cells (OSCs) derived from ascites, which allowed the cells to obtain the biphasic features of carcinosarcoma in cell culture conditions (presence of both carcinoma and mesenchymal morphologic types). This protocol involves a simple yet rapid method for the(More)
BACKGROUND Occupation is one of the major parts of our daily lives that might cause a great amount of stress. Stress and job burnout are linked together. The association between musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and burnout syndrome as a psychosocial factor was investigated previously. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify the role of(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the effects of skin moisturizers on total antioxidant capacity (TAC) of human skin using EpiDerm model. Three different skin moisturizers containing antioxidant ingredients (samples 1-3) or aloe vera extract were topically applied to EpiDerm units and incubated for 2 and 24 h to determine acute and longer-term(More)
Uterine sarcomas spread via lymphatic and hematogenous dissemination, direct extension, or transtubal transport. Distant metastasis often involves the lungs. Ovarian metastasis is uncommon. Here we present an unusual case of a large, high-grade uLMS with metastatic disease internal to both ovaries without capsular involvement or other abdominal diseases,(More)
Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic malignancy, often manifesting as early-stage well-differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma associated with a high likelihood of long-term recurrence-free survival. Minimally invasive surgery for surgical staging of endometrial lesions is now routinely practiced, with laparoscopy the preferred surgical(More)
This paper will present a case of benign metastasizing leiomyoma, incidentally found during the preoperative evaluation for acute cholecystitis. The preoperative chest X-ray revealed diffuse bilateral lung nodules suspicious for hematogenous metastasis and the densities measured 1-1.5 cm. A pelvis computed tomography (CT) scan showed in-homogeneous uterine(More)
Aplastic anemia is characterized by bone marrow failure and pancytopenia. In women, this can lead to menorrhagia secondary to thrombocytopenia which may require treatment depending on its severity. We report a patient with aplastic anemia-associated menorrhagia requiring emergency inpatient endometrial ablation due to transfusion dependence. A 42-year-old(More)
