Uterine fibroids (UFs) (leiomyomas or myomas) are the most common clonal neoplasms of the uterus in women of reproductive age worldwide. UFs originate from myometrium consist of smooth muscle and ..... see more
Relevance: Gene expression analysis and structural features indicated the early onset of uterine fibrosis led to the accumulation of extracellular matrix suggesting the potential use of this model in better understanding of the pathophysiology associated with UFs and inventing novel therapeutics for the treatment of UFs.
Pyomyoma is a rare complication of uterine fibroid occurring most commonly in pregnancy, post-partum, post-abortion, and post-menopausal periods. It results from infarction, necrosis and secondary infection of leiomyoma. We report ..... see more
Follow-up and outcome of interventions: she had two satisfactory postnatal clinic visits and she had no complaints. Histology report showed a degenerating leiomyoma with areas of cystic degeneration, necrosis, foci of suppuration and inflammatory cells infiltrations. There was no neoplastic changes. She was counselled on the possibility of...
Uterine artery embolisation (UAE) is a safe and effective procedure for symptomatic uterine fibroids with an estimated rate of post-operative intra-uterine infection of 0.9-2.5%. While rates of infection have remained ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: Uterine artery embolisation (UAE) is a safe and effective procedure for symptomatic uterine fibroids with an estimated rate of post-operative intra-uterine infection of 0.9–2.5%. While rates of infection have remained low over the past two decades, there is variation in infection prevention practices. Intra-uterine...

Studies show that between 41% and 91.5% of young women, school-aged and university-aged, are affected by dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by the production of prostaglandins, is defined as ..... see more
Relevance: Studies show that between 41% and 91.5% of young women, school-aged and university-aged, are affected by dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by the production of prostaglandins, is defined as cramping pain in the lower abdomen and/or pelvis occurring just before or during menstruation, in the absence of other...
Chronic irritation caused by urinary catheter may predispose to metaplastic changes in the bladder and very rarely, nephrogenic metaplasia. A 53-year-old lady with T-2 paraplegia and urethral catheter drainage for ..... see more
Discussion: Catheter reaction and nephrogenic metaplasia was found in the left superolateral wall of the bladder where the large uterine fibroid was pushing the balloon of the catheter against the bladder wall for more than seven years. The patient decided to undergo surgery to remove the large fibroid and thereby prevent further pressure...
Leiomyosarcoma is a malignant mesenchymal tumor of smooth muscle origin with variable morphology. * Chondrosarcomatous differentiation in primary uterine leiomyosarcoma is quite uncommon. * Carcinosarcoma, a malignant biphasic tumor, is ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: We report a case of a 68-year-old, African American woman who presented with postmenopausal bleeding …. Heterologous differentiation has rarely been described in metastatic or recurrent uterine LMS; however, a primary uterine LMS with chondrosarcomatous differentiation has not been reported previously.
CM should be considered a reliable and safe approach to prevent the need for another surgery for remnant leiomyoma. Herein, surgeons performed CM when uterine leiomyomas were large, of the ..... see more
Conclusions: CM should be considered a reliable and safe approach to prevent the need for another surgery for remnant leiomyoma. Herein, surgeons performed CM when uterine leiomyomas were large, of the subserosal type, or few. Standardized treatment guidelines for myomectomy during CSs in pregnant women with uterine fibroids should be...

Benign metastatic leiomyoma (BML) is a histologically benign disease with invasive biological behavior. Most patients are women of childbearing age with a history of uterine leiomyoma. The progress of the ..... see more
Background Pulmonary benign metastasizing leiomyoma (PBML) is a rare disease that can occur in women with a history of uterine leiomyoma. Despite its benign histological features, like a malignancy, leiomyomas ..... see more
Cadmium (Cd) is one of the most prevalent environmental heavy metal contaminants and is considered an endocrine disruptor and carcinogen. In women with uterine fibroids, there is a correlation between ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: Cadmium (Cd) is one of the most prevalent environmental heavy metal contaminants and is considered an endocrine disruptor and carcinogen. In women with uterine fibroids, there is a correlation between blood Cd levels and fibroid tumor size. In this study, fibroid cells were exposed to 10 µM CdCl2 for 6 months and a...
Background Uterine sarcomas are rare subtypes of primary urogenital tumours and need tailored treatment. This study aimed to examine the impact of diagnosis and treatment on health-related quality of life ..... see more
Conclusions: Uterine sarcoma patients experience a variety of concerns covering the physical, mental, and social domains of HRQoL that are in the main EORTC instruments, but not all of them. Combining cancer-generic, location- and sarcoma-specific items is recommended to assess HRQoL in this patient group.
In order to determine the clinical efficacy of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) for uterine fibroids (UFs), the study population comprises 65 patients who underwent hysteromyoma enucleation in our hospital from ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: To sum up, LESS-M is more advantageous over MLS-M for the treatment of UFs and deserves to be popularized and applied clinically because it causes less physical damage to patients, with the ability to promote patients' postoperative recovery, reduce postoperative pain, and improve QOL and surgical satisfaction.
The distinguishing of uterine leiomyosarcomas (ULMS) and uterine leiomyomas (ULM) before the operation and histopathological evaluation of tissue is one of the current challenges for clinicians and researchers. Recently, a ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: In our review, we focus on the possible methods to diagnose uterine lesions effectively, including clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory tests, imaging methods, molecular aspects, available scales, and AI. In addition, considering costs and availability, we list the most promising methods to be implemented and...
