We report four cases of grade 2 and 3 endo-metrial adenocarcinomas managed conservatively in order to preserve fertility. In the literature, seven other cases have been reported. We discuss the management of these cases and compared the carcinologic and fertility outcomes with fertility-sparing management of grade 1 endometrial adenocarcinoma.
The literature suggests that misoprostol can be offered to patients for off-label use as it has reasonable efficacy, risk/benefit ratio, tolerance and patient satisfaction, according to the criteria for evidence-based medicine. Both the vaginal and sublingual routes are more effective than the oral route for first-trimester cervical dilatation. Vaginal(More)
OBJECTIVES Preeclampsia is one of the most frequent and most serious complications of pregnancy. Its occurrence is around 5% of the pregnancies. Its pathophysiology is complex and includes several hypotheses. Preeclampsia is inconsistently associated with intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR).

Human placental development is characterized by invasion of extravillous cytotrophoblasts (EVCTs) into the uterine wall during the first trimester of pregnancy. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) plays a major role in placental development, and activation of PPARγ by its agonists results in inhibition of EVCT invasion in vitro. To identify(More)
OBJECTIVE Placenta accreta is a rare obstetrical pathology but leads to a high morbidity. It is likely to become increasingly frequent as the rate of cesarean section increases in developed countries. The aim of our study was to describe the diagnostic and management of patients with placenta accreta, during the last ten years, in a French high-level(More)

Description of acute per-partum feto-fetal transfusion. The risk of twin-twin transfusion syndrome in monochorionic twin pregnancies is well known. This pathology starts in the second trimester and has a chronic course. Acute per-partum feto-fetal transfusion seems to be less frequent and has not been studied. In the study, we described two cases of acute(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the benefits and risks of labor induction in patients previously delivered by at least one low transverse cesarean section. To define how labor should be managed in patients attempting a vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). METHODS A literature search was performed using the Pubmed(®) and Cochrane(®) databases.
