INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to compare postoperative pain between single-port access total laparoscopic hysterectomy (SPA-TLH) using a transumbilical single-port system and conventional multi (three)-port access total laparoscopic hysterectomy (MPA-TLH). MATERIAL AND METHODS A randomized controlled trial was conducted on 60 women who(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of FDG positron emission tomography (PET) in comparison with CT in detecting recurrent ovarian carcinoma and its ability to reveal small tumor recurrence. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the records of 31 consecutive patients with pathologically proven epithelial carcinoma who(More)
We compared the incidence of vaginal cuff dehiscence and other surgical complications after different modes of suturing during total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH), and reviewed the characteristics of patients with complications. We enrolled 248 patients undergoing TLH for benign diseases at Daejeon St Mary’s Hospital of Korea from March 2007 through(More)
The purpose of the current study was to determine whether or not the quadruple test for screening Down syndrome is an effective method to replace direct amniocentesis in pregnant women ≥35 years of age. This study analyzed the screening performance of the quadruple test according to maternal age at delivery among subjects who had a quadruple screening test(More)
To compare surgical outcomes and complications of 284 patients who had total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH), 366 patients who had multi-port access total laparoscopic hysterectomy (MPA-TLH), and 286 patients who had single-port access total laparoscopic hysterectomy (SPA-TLH) using a transumbilical single-port system. A retrospective study was conducted on a(More)
Schwannoma (neurilemmoma) is a peripheral nerve sheath tumor and commonly occurs singularly on the head, neck, and trunk. Giant schwannoma is rarely located on the retroperitoneum and pelvic cavity. The majority of symptoms caused by the tumor are due to the effect of its mass. Surgical resection is enough to treat the tumor. Schwannoma is reported usually(More)
OBJECTIVE Cervical neoplasia is attributed to a persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. We performed a hospital-based, case-control study to evaluate the associations of HPV genotypes and other cofactors with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). METHODS A total of 158 women were enrolled after we received their informed consent, and the(More)
BACKGROUND In this study we examined the use of a new-human papillomavirus (HPV) detection method, the HPV oligonucleotide microarray system (Biomedlab Co., Korea), which we compared with the well-established HPV DNA detection system (Hybrid Capture II; HC-II, Digene Co.). This new method prompted us to develop a new HPV genotyping technique, using the(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is implicated as an etiologic agent in neoplasitc lesions of the cervix. In this study, we used an HPV DNA chip to detect the type-specific sequence of HPV from cervical swabs in women with biopsy- proven neoplastic lesions of the cervix. Four hundred seventy-one patients were involved and classified into four groups based on the(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the efficacy of a new scoring system to differentiate high-risk hydatidiform mole (H-mole) and initiate early selective postmolar chemotherapy. STUDY DESIGN According to Kim's scoring system, 262 patients were identified as high-risk H-mole patients. Fifty (19.1%) received early chemotherapy, and the rest constituted the control group.(More)
