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 To compare efficiency of a double-balloon to vaginal prostaglandins for cervical ripening in patients with unfavourable cervix. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty patients induced with a double-balloon were compared to 50 patients receiving vaginal prostaglandins. Matching criteria were age, parity, history of uterine scar, gestational age and Bishop(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)
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. Foreign(More)
OBJECTIVE Study, based on the literature, of the use of misoprostol for induction of labor in cases of second or third trimester fetal death or termination of pregnancy and define the different mode of administration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bibliographic review using the Medline and Pubmed databases and the guidelines of the international professional(More)
Face presentation is rare. Its risk factors are debated and its mechanism is practically unknown. The objectives of the study were to determine the prenatal factors associated with face presentation at delivery and discuss the mechanism by which it occurs. Retrospective case–control study including all cases of face presentation of infants born at a(More)
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)
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). The determinants that explain the variability of this(More)
