Conclusion: Urinary symptoms are often associated with uterine fibroids. The most frequently reported symptoms are overactive bladder symptoms and stress urinary incontinence. Urinary symptoms improve significantly after surgery.
Discussion: This study illustrates that histotripsy is capable of fibroid ablation under certain pulsing parameters and warrants further investigation as an improved non-invasive ablation method for the treatment of leiomyomas.
Leiomyoma is the most common benign uterine tumor in reproductive-age women. Increasing numbers of studies are focusing on the effects of environmental exposure on the incidence and progression of tumors. ..... see more

Conclusion: Environmental exposure to BHT could be associated with several disease disorders and disadvantages. Using the ELT-3 rat leiomyoma cell model, the results shed light on BHT’s potential in enhancing leiomyoma cell proliferation, colony formation, and ECM accumulation in a mechanism that might involve modulation of PI3K/Akt and MAPK...

The advantage of transcervical radiofrequency ablation (TRFA) is that it is minimally invasive, incision-free, and treats a wide spectrum of fibroids, including those that are not accessible by surgical hysteroscopy ..... see more
Conclusions: Although TRFA is an approved method, it is not yet widely used worldwide. The combined procedure has been rarely used. The aim of our work is to show through our case series that transcervical radiofrequency ablation can be combined with surgical hysteroscopy for fibroid and/or endometrial resection without any additional risk.

Introduction Uterine body cancers (UBC) are represented by endometrial carcinoma (EC) and uterine sarcoma (USa). The clinical management of both is hindered by the complex classification of patients into risk ..... see more
Conclusion/Relevance: Uterine body cancers (UBC) are represented by endometrial carcinoma (EC) and uterine sarcoma (USa). The clinical management of both is hindered by the complex classification of patients into risk classes. This problem could be simplified through the development of predictive models aimed at treatment tailoring based on...

Parasitic leiomyoma (PL) is an extremely rare variant of uterine leiomyomas that occurs outside of the uterus and can often present like intra-abdominal tumors. The aim of this study is ..... see more
Fibroids are a common finding among women in their reproductive years. In pregnancy, many are incidentally diagnosed and if they are large, they often require careful monitoring concerning their size, ..... see more
Conclusions/Relevance: Deliveries by inverted T-incisions have increased throughout the years, and this could be explained by the recent favoring of performing cesarean myomectomies, in large obstructing fibroids. Nowadays, with advanced preparations, myomectomies during cesarean section are safely and frequently performed when the benefits...

This trial found that myomectomy resulted in greater improvement in quality of life at two years compared with uterine artery embolisation for women with uterine fibroids and at lower cost. ..... see more
Conclusions: Among women with symptomatic uterine fibroids, myomectomy resulted in greater improvement in quality of life than did uterine artery embolisation. The differences in costs and quality-adjusted life-years are very small. Future research should involve women who are desiring pregnancy.
