Herein the authors report the first case of prophylactic bilateral salpingo-ovariectomy (BSO) in single port access laparoscopy (SPAL) with use of diode laser in a patient with BRCA1 mutation. As fimbria could be considered the site of origin for many serous carcinomas in BRCA mutation carriers, many studies are carried out to evaluate the possibility of(More)
Operative laparoscopy is the gold standard in the treatment of endometriotic ovarian cysts. Excisional surgery is the best technique to prevent recurrences and improve symptoms but it may result in ovarian reserve damage due to the removal of healthy ovarian cortex. The aim of this study was to assess the impact on ovarian reserve of the use of dual(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and safety of office hysteroscopic metroplasty using a 980nm diode laser. STUDY DESIGN 18 patients were treated for septate uterus between 2013 and 2016. The indications for hysteroscopic metroplasty were recurrent abortion in 11 of the women and primary infertility in the other seven. We used a 5mm-office(More)
The term laser, an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, covers a wide range of devices. Lasers are commonly described by the emitted wavelength that covers the entire light spectrum from infrared to ultraviolet and the active lasing medium. Currently, over forty different types of lasers have found application in medicine.(More)
INTRODUCTION Endometrial ablation is a procedure that surgically destroys (ablates) the lining of the uterus (endometrium). The goal of endometrial ablation is to reduce menstrual flow. In some women, menstrual flow may stop completely. In some cases, endometrial ablation may be an alternative to hysterectomy. There are several techniques used to perform(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) in a primary care pediatric setting and to collect clinical and biochemical data, allowing for a prediction of its presence in a supposedly healthy population. METHODS Belonging to a pediatric population followed by pediatricians of the Italian National Health Service, 415 subjects with(More)
INTRODUCTION We report a case of leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) arising 10 years after a laparoscopic myomectomy that was associated with ascites and lymph nodes enlargement. PRESENTATION OF CASE The patient presented with small uterine fibroids with a dominant posterior intramural fibroid measuring 9cm in diameter and normal Doppler.(More)
AIMS Previous studies have noted an association between a diagnosis of overactive bladder and bacteriuria, but little is understood about the relationship of bacteriuria to specific LUTS. We hypothesized that bacteriuria in women would be associated with increased self-reported symptom scores for a wide range of LUTS. METHODS Women were recruited from(More)
Currently, endometrial polyps may be successfully treated in an outpatient setting with 5 Fr mechanical and bipolar instruments. Our aim is to evaluate the benefits of minimally invasive techniques in hysteroscopy, focusing on the use of a new dual wavelengths laser system in the treatment of endometrial polyps in an outpatient setting.
