microRNA-181a has a critical role in ovarian cancer progression through the regulation of the epithelial–mesenchymal transition
TLDR
It is shown that miR-181a promotes TGF-β-mediated epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition via repression of its functional target, Smad7, and its expression is associated with shorter time to recurrence and poor outcome in patients with EOC.
Role of FDG PET/CT in staging of recurrent ovarian cancer.
TLDR
PET/CT is superior to CT and MR imaging for depiction of recurrent disease and in the posttherapy setting, inflammatory and infectious processes may lead to false-positive PET/CT results.
Comparative immunohistochemical studies of bcl‐2 and p53 proteins in benign and malignant ovarian endometriotic cysts
TLDR
Using immunohistochemistry, the authors compared staining patterns in benign endometriotic cysts with ovarian tumors and the endometRIotic cyst lining from which they arose, in an attempt to identify sequential or etiologic correlations.
Fallopian tube and primary peritoneal carcinomas associated with BRCA mutations.
TLDR
Although the lifetime risks of FTC or PPC for patients with BRCA heterozygotes are greater than those for the general population, the absolute risks seem relatively low.
A case-controlled study of total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy versus radical abdominal hysterectomy in a fellowship training program
TLDR
It is feasible to incorporate TLRH training into the surgical curriculum of gynecologic oncology fellows without increasing perioperative morbidity.
Minimally Invasive Management of an Advanced Abdominal Pregnancy
TLDR
This report demonstrates successful minimally invasive management of an advanced abdominal pregnancy with a multimodal approach that included preoperative arterial embolization, laparoscopically assisted delivery, and judicious use of postoperative methotrexate.
PET/CT evaluation of cervical cancer: spectrum of disease.
The prognosis of invasive cervical cancer is based on the stage, size, and histologic grade of the primary tumor and the status of the lymph nodes. Assessment of disease stage is essential in
