PURPOSE In modern obstetrics, different pharmacological and non-pharmacological options allow to obtain pain relief during labour, one of the most important goals in women satisfaction about medical care. The aim of this review is to compare all the analgesia administration schemes in terms of effectiveness in pain relief, length of labour, mode of(More)
Radical trachelectomy (RT) can be performed vaginally or abdominally (laparotomic, laparoscopic or robotic). The aim of this systematic review was to compare all techniques in terms of surgical complications, disease recurrence and subsequent fertility/pregnancy outcomes. A total of 1293 RTs were analyzed (FIGO-stage: IA1-IIA). The most frequent surgical(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether a correlation exists between size, location, type of myomas and perioperative outcomes. METHODS This is a observational study in women undergone to laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) because of single symptomatic myoma >4 cm in diameter. We collected data about general features, surgical outcomes, intraoperative/postoperative(More)
Metastatic involvement of pelvic lymph-nodes (LNs), generally found in 0–29.3 % of early stages, is the most important prognostic factor in cervical cancer (CC). However, even in non-metastatic LNs, recurrence rate reaches 10–15 %. The role of HPV-DNA presence in pelvic LNs has been a point of debate in the last two decades. The aim of this systematic(More)
We investigated the role of foetal spine position in the first and second labour stages to determine the probability of OPP detection at birth and the related obstetrical implications. We conducted an observational-longitudinal cohort study on uncomplicated cephalic single foetus pregnant women at term. We evaluated the accuracy of ultrasound in predicting(More)
In order to reduce the surgical invasiveness in early-stage cervical-cancer treatment, the sentinel lymph-node (SLN) technique could be considered as a possible intraoperative-guidance to lymphadenectomy decision making. Unfortunately its accuracy ranges between 33.3% and 100% in different studies. Recent manuscripts suggest that HPV-DNA presence in(More)
Raloxifene is the only selective estrogen receptor modulator approved for long-term treatment in the prevention of osteoporotic fractures and for the reduction of invasive breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women. The demonstrated beneficial effects on bone and mammalian tissue led clinical and molecular research to focus mainly on these organs, giving(More)
We performed a systematic review about studies reporting data of myomectomy performed by magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) technique in order to define its safety, feasibility, indications, complications, and impact on uterine fibroid symptom and health-related quality of life (UFS-QOL) and fertility. Outcomes were considered according(More)
