BACKGROUND: Introduced to the U.S. market in late 2002 as a permanent method of contraception, a microinsert device is placed hysteroscopically into the fallopian tubes, not requiring incisions or general anesthesia. This report describes a case of pregnancy more than 6 months after a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) confirming bilateral occlusion after ...

INTRODUCTION: Uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare disease. Percutaneous transcatheter uterine arterial embolization (UAE) has been performed in patients who wish to preserve their ability to conceive. UAE is considered to be a safe and effective procedure, but its long-term effect on fertility has not been fully elucidated. We ...

Heterotopic gestation, although common with assisted reproductive techniques, is very rare in natural conception. A high index of suspicion can help in timely diagnosis and appropriate intervention. We report a case of heterotopic pregnancy in a 22-year-old woman presented with hemoperitoneum from ruptured tubal pregnancy with live intrauterine gestation at ...

Hysterosalpingography accurately delineates the uterine and tubal lumen, and hence is routinely performed for the evaluation of infertility.We observed a case of infertility where uterine cavity was normal but fallopian tubes were bifurcated at the ampullary region. Mullerian duct anomalies are reported in literature, but maldevelopment of fallopian tube in ...

The classic symptoms of ectopic pregnancy are secondary amenorrhoea, abdominal pain and vaginal haemorrhage, with a clinical picture of varying acuteness. It is among the commonest causes of maternal mortality during the first three months of pregnancy. In the majority of cases (95%) the pregnancy is tubal, but other sites ...

For most tubal ectopic pregnancies (EP) surgery is the treatment of first choice. Whether surgical treatment should be performed conservatively (salpingostomy) or radically (salpingectomy) in women wishing to preserve their reproductive capacity, is subject to debate. Salpingostomy preserves the tube, but bears the risks of both persistent trophoblast and repeat ...

Tubal surgery is a widely accepted treatment for tubal infertility. Estimated livebirth rates after surgery range from 9% for women with severe tubal disease to 69% for those with mild disease, however, its effectiveness has not been rigorously evaluated in comparison with other treatments such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) ...
Sabers Anne A Glostrup University Hospital, The Epilepsy Clinic, Department of Neurology, DK-2600 Glostrup, Denmark. - - 2008
A substantial proportion of women with epilepsy experience seizure deterioration during pregnancy. This is most likely explained by a drop in plasma levels of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) as a consequence of altered drug pharmacokinetics. It has been known for many years that gestation induces the elimination of standard AEDs (phenytoin, ...

Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) is generally considered safe with a low rate of serious complications. However, dislocation of the PEG-tube into the duodenum can lead to serious complications. An 86-year old Japanese woman with PEG-tube feeding sometimes vomited after her family doctor replaced the PEG-tube without radiologic confirmation. At her ...

We describe a modified surgical technique for permanent, anterior tracheal-wall stoma for chronic, repeat respiratory studies in trained, conscious dogs. These cannula-free tracheostomies require minimal daily maintenance, permit repeat intubation with endotracheal tubes modified for airflow respiratory measurement, and facilitate up to 6 h continuous administration of aerosol agents during ...

The MUC1 mucin is normally expressed in the epithelium of the fallopian tube, and its expression on the epithelium of the tubes with ectopic pregnancies has not been studied. The mean (+/- SEM) histologic score for MUC1 was 1.4 +/- 0.2 in the luminal epithelium of tubes with ectopic pregnancies, ...

BACKGROUND: Sterilization failure due to 'tubal non-occlusion' or 'wrong structure sterilization' is considered negligent, whereas 'spontaneous tubal recanalization' or 'fistula formation' is considered non-negligent. We examined whether interval to pregnancy failure was predictive of a negligent rather non-negligent failure mechanism. We aim to test this hypothesis in a selected population ...

This article describes the evolution and stutter steps in the legal developments surrounding the controversial claims for "wrongful conception," "wrongful birth," and "wrongful life." These claims arise from negligence in a failed vasectomy/tubal ligation resulting in an unwanted pregnancy and from negligence in failing to perform or properly interpret genetic ...

The uterus and fallopian tubes represent a functionally united peristaltic pump under the endocrine control of ipsilateral ovary. We have examined this function by using hysterosalpingoscintigraphy (HSS), recording of intrauterine pressure, electrohysterography, and Doppler sonography of the fallopian tubes. An uptake of labeled particles into the uterus was observed during ...

Of couples with subfertility, 25% have complete or partial blockage of the fallopian tube. Since the advent of in vitro fertilization (IVF), the role of tubal surgery has diminished. However, this type of surgery continues to be undertaken on selected patients with mild tubal disease, and in those with severe ...

Prior to the advent of microsurgical equipment and techniques, it was rare for urologists or other surgeons to produce a full pregnancy as a result of reconstructing fine tubal blockages in the male reproductive tract. Perhaps 2% of vasectomized men, and a large percent of men born sterile, are desirous ...
