Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with multiple risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. In addition, hyperandrogenism may contribute to the pathogenesis of CVD, independent of obesity and insulin resistance. We investigated serum levels of(More)
This study aimed to investigate the association between serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] and metabolic syndrome along with its associated risk factors in Korean postmenopausal women. This study was performed using data from the KNHANES 2008-2010 study and included 4,364 postmenopausal Korean women. Clinical and other objective characteristics,(More)
BACKGROUND As women go through menopause, serum estrogen decreases and ferritin increases. Decreased serum estrogen is well known to cause detrimental effects on bone health; however, data on the associations of serum ferritin with BMD before and after menopause are still lacking. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the association between serum(More)
It has been reported in several studies that there may be a significant correlation between reproductive history and the risk of osteoporosis due to the effect of estrogen. Under this hypothesis, however, it is unclear whether the age at first delivery has any major influences on the risk of osteoporosis. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to assess the association between bone mineral density (BMD) and coronary atherosclerosis in healthy postmenopausal women. METHODS We performed a retrospective review of 252 postmenopausal women who had visited a health promotion center for a routine checkup. BMD of the lumbar spine (L1-L4) and femoral neck was evaluated using(More)
BACKGROUND Serum ferritin levels increase in postmenopausal women, and they are reported to be linked to major health problems. Here, we investigated the association between serum ferritin levels and insulin resistance (IR) in postmenopausal women. METHODS A total of 6632 healthy Korean women (4357 premenopausal and 2275 postmenopausal) who participated(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of each component of the revised American Fertility Society (rAFS) classification system for the first recurrence of endometriosis after conservative laparoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS As this was a retrospective cohort study, data were collected by reviewing medical records. A total of 379 women(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate whether Müllerian inhibiting substance (MIS) in combination with calcitriol modulates proliferation and apoptosis of human ovarian cancer (OCa) cell lines (SKOV3, OVCAR3, and OVCA433) and identify the signaling pathway by which MIS mediates apoptosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS OCa cell lines were treated with MIS in the(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate whether robotic tubal reanastomosis after segmental resection of tubal pregnancy is a feasible means of preserving tubal integrity and natural fertility in those with compromised contralateral tubal condition.The study was performed at a university medical center in a retrospective manner where da Vinci robotic(More)
Oxidative stress has been proposed as a potential factor associated with the establishment and progression of endometriosis. Although a few studies have shown possible mechanisms which may play roles in development, progression of endometriosis, few are known in regards of initiation of the disease, especially in the relationship with endometrium. The aim(More)
