OBJECTIVE To evaluate pregnancy outcomes, complications and neonatal outcomes in women who had previously undergone uterine arterial embolization. METHODS A retrospective study of 187 patients treated with uterine arterial embolization for symptomatic uterine fibroids between 2005-2008 was performed. Uterine arterial embolization was performed using(More)
BACKGROUND This study was performed to evaluate antithrombin III levels in postmenopausal women receiving hormonal replacement treatment. METHODS It is a prospective randomized study concerning 19 postmenopausal patients, aged 40 to 65 years, who received either continuous daily oral equine conjugated estrogen 0.625 mg (group A, N=10) or daily transdermal(More)
PURPOSE To analyze histomorphometric consequences of the uterine arteries embolization (UAE) in the uterine tissue, especially by collagen tissue quantification through uterine biopsy, before and after treatment of uterine leiomyoma. METHODS 15 patients with symptomatic leyomioma and/or infertility, submitted to UAE, participated in the study according to(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by low bone mineral density (BMD). Studies have shown that some of the genetic components relating to lower BMD may be detected by polymorphisms. Our aim was to evaluate the frequencies of interleukin-6, GST and progesterone receptor gene polymorphisms in postmenopausal women with low(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of uterine artery embolization (UAE) on uterine volume (UV), greater myoma diameter (GMD) and ovarian function three months after the procedure, by transvaginal pelvic ultrasonography (TVPUS) and by the determination of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). METHODS Thirty patients with leiomyomas were submitted to UAE. TVPUS(More)
Purpose To translate into Portuguese, culturally adapt and validate the Uterine Fibroid Symptom - Quality of Life (UFS-QoL) questionnaire for Brazilian women with uterine leiomyoma.

The ACTH test has been used to confirm the diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and the classic and the non-classic adrenal hyperplasia due to the 3-HSD, 21 OH e 110H deficiencies. This article reviews the historical aspects of the use of ACTH in the diagnosis of hirsutism and points out its mains indications. In spite of new biological molecular advances in(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate collagen of endometrial/uterine tissue before and after uterine arterial embolization (UAE). Fifteen consecutive patients with a diagnosis of uterine fibroids were included. Clinical diagnosis of uterine fibroids had been confirmed by ultrasonography. Uterine arterial embolization procedure was performed with(More)
