1/7. Laparoscopic excision of myometrial adenomyomas in patients with adenomyosis uteri and main symptoms of severe dysmenorrhea and hypermenorrhea.

    Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging accurately diagnosed adenomyosis uteri in three women. We performed laparoscopic excision of myometrial adenomyomas and localized portions of adenomyosis uteri in all women in whom the disorder was accompanied by severe dysmenorrhea and hypermenorrhea. We used the same procedure as for laparoscopic myomectomy. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications, and patients were hospitalized only 3 days. The women's dysmenorrhea and hypermenorrhea disappeared by the end of the first postoperative menses.

2/7. Case of iatrogenic dysmenorrhea in non-communicating rudimentary uterine horn and its laparoscopic resection.

    Abstract A case of non-communicating rudimentary uterine horn is presented and is a characteristic example of the way that surgical treatment can exacerbate dysmenorrhea by blocking retrograde menstruation. There is always some risk of missing the true diagnosis in cases of uterine abnormalities, even by direct inspection, but intraoperative laparoscopic ultrasonography can be an invaluable tool in defining anatomy. As laparoscopic resection has become the standard procedure for the treatment of unicornuate uterus, laparoscopic ultrasonography can be a useful tool for providing anatomical information to the operating surgeon about the patient.

3/7. Reactive nodular fibrous pseudotumor involving the pelvic and abdominal cavity: a case report and review of literature.

    There are several entities that can present with multiple nodular lesions within the peritoneal cavity, such as "disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis," "peritoneal fibrosis," "calcifying fibrous pseudotumor," and the recently described lesion of "reactive nodular fibrous pseudotumor of the gastrointestinal tract and mesentery." Here we present one such lesion in a 28-year-old woman with a history of dysmenorrhea and ergotamine use for migraine attacks. Intraoperative exploration of our patient disclosed numerous nodules located throughout the pelvic and abdominal peritoneum. Histopathologically, these lesions were fibrocollagenous nodules composed of sparse wavy spindle cells within hyalinized "keloid-like" collagen surrounded by an inflammatory infiltrate. Some of the nodules were associated with small foci of endometriosis. We believe this lesion is best described by the term "reactive nodular fibrous pseudotumor" and that endometriosis and the use of ergotamine derivatives may be contributing factors.

4/7. Laparoscopic management of unicornuate uterus with non-communicating rudimentary horn (three cases).

    This article describes the laparoscopic management of unicornuate uterus with a non-communicating rudimentary horn in three women who presented with lower abdominal pain and dysmenorrhoea. The patients were managed with laparoscopic removal of the rudimentary horn along with the ipsilateral salpinx. No complications were noted intraoperatively and the patients remain asymptomatic.

5/7. Laparoscopic removal of a rudimentary uterine horn in a previously hysterectomized patient.

    BACKGROUND: The unicornuate uterine anomaly is often difficult to diagnose and usually low on the list of differential diagnoses for pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea. The authors present a case of a rudimentary uterine horn as a cause for continued pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea in a previously hysterectomized woman. CASE REPORT: A 43-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 1, presented for evaluation of right lower quadrant pain of several years' duration. Her past surgical history was significant for multiple prior laparoscopies and a vaginal hysterectomy. Radiographic studies revealed a mass in the right lower quadrant. laparoscopy revealed a solid mass in the right pelvis that was diagnosed as a rudimentary uterine horn. CONCLUSION: Uterine anomalies, although uncommon, should be thought of as part of the differential diagnosis for pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea. A thorough inspection of the pelvis should be performed at the time of any operative procedure for abdominal pain.

6/7. Omental herniation after operative laparoscopy. A case report.

    Omental herniation through an 11-mm umbilical incision occurred 36 hours after operative laparoscopy. It was attributed to large amounts of residual irrigation fluid in the abdominopelvic cavity and failure to close the fascia of the umbilical incision. This case stresses the importance of closing the fascia of larger laparoscopic incisions, especially if irrigation fluid is left in the abdominal cavity postoperatively.

7/7. Hysteroscopic resection of vaginal septum in an adolescent virgin with obstructed hemivagina.

    This article reports on one patient with a double uterus, unilateral vaginal obstruction, with hemi-haematocolpos and ipsilateral renal agenesis. Early accurate diagnosis followed by the excision of the obstructing vaginal septum offers complete relief of symptoms, while preserving reproductive capacity. Unlike conventional excision of vaginal septum, we used resectoscope excision with cutting electrode under continuous pure distilled water irrigation. The postoperative course was uneventful, and haematocolpos and severe dysmenorrhoea disappeared. The resected vaginal area revealed re-epithelialization by hysteroscope follow-up one year after resection. With advancements in resectoscopic operation, evaluation and treatment of vaginal disorders in babies and virgins is very feasible.
