Cyst of the canal of Nuck: an atypical course with cyclic changing of size

The painful swelling was cyclic changing from the size of a plum to being clinically undetectable within the course of a day, the first description of such an unusual course, and the cyst was removed operatively via an open approach.

Post-partum hemorrhage: can it be prevented by assisting the natural physiological process?

It is possible to understand the procedures used in the management of postpartum hemorrhage and in this study, a retrospective observational study of a population of 5927 women who delivered by Cesarean Section or vaginal labor between 2014 and 2018, after the 34th gestational week.

Postpartum Hemorrage: Are There Physiological Mechanisms of Prevention?

This biological system is the integrated pelvic myofascial system and it has a prime importance in the physiological reduction of the PPH risk and to maintain uterine contractility during and after childbirth.


The physiology of uterine contraction related to the childbirth and the PPH is analyzed, identifying an anatomical system involved in the physiological post-partum uterine contractility, and the development of a generic computer platform based on augmented reality technology for surgical preoperative planning is presented.

Embryonic developmental process and clinical anatomy of the preperitoneal fascia and its clinical significance.

Investigation of the origin, structure, and clinical significance of the preperitoneal fascia in conjunction with previous anatomical findings of the genitourinary fascia, using the embryogenesis of the GENITourinary system as a guide, shows that there is a complete fascial system that migrates into PPF in the pre peritoneal space and the internal spermatic fascie in the inguinal canal.

Reproductive System



Inguinal canal development: The muscular wall and the role of the gubernaculum

It is intended to explain how the deep inguinal ring moves upwards, bringing the gubernaculum along with it, and thus determines the final form of the ingUinal canal.

The anatomy of the female gubernaculum is different from the male.

It is shown that the round ligament fails to reach the caudal labium, which is the homologue of the hemiscrotum, which means the migration of the male gubernaculum into the scrotum to enable descent of the testis does not occur in females.

Endometriosis of the round ligament of the uterus.

The aim of this work is to investigate the round ligament's physiological activity in the non-pregnant, pregnant state and during labour.

A Reevaluation of the Structures Accepted to Represent the Postnatal Gubernaculum

The structure called the residual G in boys with an undescended testis and the round ligament in girls actually represent the obliterated processus vaginalis.

The Cavitated Accessory Uterine Mass: A Müllerian Anomaly in Women With an Otherwise Normal Uterus

Clinical cases of women who had an accessory and cavitated noncommunicating uterine mass with functioning endometrium associated with a normal uterus are presented, suggestive of a new type of Müllerian anomaly.

Histopathological evaluation of the connective tissue of the vaginal fascia and the uterine ligaments in women with and without pelvic relaxation

It was concluded that decreased fibroblasts and increased collagen content might be the key factors associated with pelvic support disorders.

The Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster syndrome

These findings suggest that the histological appearance of the rudimentary uterus, endometrium, uterine tube, Gartner's duct, round ligament, vagina and ovary is described in ten case of the MRK syndrome is due to a deficiency of the estrogen and gestagen receptors.

Deep pelvic endometriosis: don’t forget round ligaments. Review of anatomy, clinical characteristics, and MR imaging features

Embryology and anatomy of the RLUs are reviewed as well clinical characteristics associated with these endometriotic locations, and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging protocol, normal MR imaging appearances of theRLUs and the most common abnormal findings of endometRIotic involvement of these ligaments at MR imaging are described.
