PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the smooth muscle content and apoptosis of the uterosacral ligament in women with and without uterine prolapse. STUDY DESIGN Uterosacral ligaments were sampled in women with (n = 9) or without (n = 9) uterine prolapse undergoing hysterectomy. Smooth muscle of the uterosacral ligament was identified by(More)
To examine the effects of adenomyosis on tumor progression and survival outcome of endometrial cancer patients. This is a retrospective study examining stage I–IV endometrial cancer patients who underwent hysterectomy-based surgical staging (n = 571), and endometrial hyperplasia patients who underwent hysterectomy (n = 213). Clinical demographics,(More)
To compare the smooth muscle content and apoptosis of the vagina in women with and without anterior vaginal wall prolapse. Vaginal tissues were sampled in women with (n = 6) or without (n = 6) anterior vaginal wall prolapse undergoing hysterectomy. Smooth muscle of the vagina was studied by immunohistochemistry. Digital image analysis was used to determine(More)
The purpose of this study is to compare vaginal caldesmon expression in women with and without anterior vaginal wall prolapse. Vaginal tissues were sampled in women with (n = 11) or without (n = 11) vaginal wall prolapse. Caldesmon messenger RNA (mRNA) expression was assessed by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction. Immunohistochemistry and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to examine contributing factors associated with developing menopausal symptoms after surgical staging in women with endometrial cancer. METHODS This is a retrospective study examining patients with endometrial cancer who were premenopausal at the time of hysterectomy-based surgical staging including bilateral(More)
OBJECTIVE Although a fraction of endometrial hyperplasia cases have concurrent endometrial carcinoma, patient characteristics associated with concurrent malignancy are not well described. The aim of our study was to identify predictive clinico-pathologic factors for concurrent endometrial carcinoma among patients with endometrial hyperplasia. METHODS A(More)
The prenatal diagnosis of a nasopharyngeal teratoma carries a very grave prognosis. Although these tumors constitute only 9% of all teratomas, all previous cases diagnosed antenatally have been associated with either fetal demise or emergent surgery at birth. Of the fetuses that survive to birth, delivery can be associated with airway obstruction and(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to examine risk factors associated with development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among women with endometrial cancer who underwent surgical staging with or without oophorectomy. METHODS This is a retrospective study that evaluated endometrial cancer cases that underwent surgical staging (n = 666) and endometrial(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare smooth muscle regulatory protein expression in the uterosacral ligament (USL) of women with and without uterine prolapse. STUDY DESIGN USLs ligament were sampled in women with (n = 9) or without (n = 9) uterine prolapse. Caldesmon, smooth muscle actin (SMA), myosin heavy chain, and zinc finger protein messenger RNA expression was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to identify risk factors associated with laparotomy conversion during total laparoscopic hysterectomy for endometrial cancer. METHODS This is a retrospective study examining endometrial cancer cases that underwent hysterectomy-based surgical staging initiated via conventional laparoscopic approach. Factors related to(More)
