To analyze whether a large uterine size was associated with increased rate of intraoperative and postoperative surgical complications in patients who underwent total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) for myomatous uteri. We examined prospectively data from 461 consecutive TLHs performed by a single surgeon between August 2004 and August 2014 at the Department(More)
BACKGROUND Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) has demonstrated to be feasible and safe in the presence of very large uteri. However, it is currently difficult to establish the upper uterine weight limit for successful performance of a laparoscopic hysterectomy. CASE PRESENTATION Here we report the case of a TLH performed for a very large fibromatous(More)
INTRODUCTION Although rare, cases of abdominal sarcomatosis (AS) after laparotomy/laparoscopic interventions for uterine smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential (STUMP) have been reported. PRESENTATION OF CASE We describe a rare case of diffuse abdominal sarcomatosis in a patient that some year earlier had undergone myomectomy for a(More)
Uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS) in some cases may disseminate through the abdominal cavity, without extra-abdominal spreading, determining a condition of abdominal sarcomatosis, which represents a peculiar situation. Only radical surgical removal offers a chance of long-term survival in such cases of LMS. Here we describe a case of diffuse abdominal(More)
