A subgroup of early‐stage cervical cancer patients suffer from vaginal cuff recurrence following a primary surgery; however, recurrence after a disease‐free interval of 5 years is rare. Treatments for isolated vaginal relapse remain controversial. Here we report a case of a 50‐year‐old woman with isolated vaginal cuff recurrence 8 years after primary radical surgery for cervical cancer. We conducted a vaginectomy and vaginoplasty using a type of tissue‐engineered biomaterial graft. Three… Expand
Cervical cancer remains a significant global health problem, particularly in developing countries, where cervical cancer is a leading cause of cancer-associated death in women (1). The risk factors for cervical cancer development primarily include human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (accounting for
Previous microrna (mir) microarray analysis revealed that mir-218 is downregulated in cervical cancer tissues. The present study aimed to further evaluate the expression of mir-218 in cervical cancerExpand
miR-218 functions as a tumor suppressor gene in cervical cancer
The results revealed that miR-218 was downregulated in the tumor tissues and plasma of patients with cervical cancer, with expression associated with the advanced clinicopathological characteristics of patients, including HPV positivity, tumor size, blood vessel invasion and lymph node metastasis.

miR-122 Inhibits the Cervical Cancer Development by Targeting the Oncogene RAD21.
The data suggested that miR-122 could block malignant growth and promoted apoptosis by targeting RAD21 in CC and overexpression of RAD21 restored the roles of miR -122 in CC. Expand


Resection of the vaginal vault for vaginal recurrence of cervical cancer after hysterectomy and brachytherapy
Vaginal vault resection is an effective treatment for vaginal recurrence of cervical cancer after hysterectomy and radiotherapy, however, complications of this procedure can be expected to reduce quality of life. Expand
Vaginectomy: A Minimally Invasive Treatment for Cervical Cancer Vaginal Recurrence
Older patients with long disease-free interval and small recurrences benefit the most from this bladder-sparing surgical technique, and vaginectomy may be considered a therapeutic option for IVR. Expand

Acellular porcine small intestinal submucosa graft for cervicovaginal reconstruction in eight patients with malformation of the uterine cervix.
A combined laparoscopic and vaginal cervicovaginal reconstruction with an SIS graft is a potential alternative to the management of congenital agenesis and dysgenesis of uterine cervix and vagina. Expand
Sexual and functional outcomes of vaginoplasty using acellular porcine small intestinal submucosa graft or laparoscopic peritoneal vaginoplasty: a comparative study.
Vaginoplasty using SIS graft was successfully achieved in women with MRKHS, and the anatomical and functional outcomes of this procedure were comparable to those of laparoscopic peritoneal vaginoplasty. Expand
Management of Vaginal Hypoplasia in Disorders of Sexual Development: Surgical and Non-Surgical Options
Vaginal dilators remain the cornerstone of treatment of women with vaginal hypoplasia and should be used as the first-line technique, and surgical vaginoplasty has a role in complex patients with previous failed dilation and surgical intervention. Expand
