1/24. Abnormal genital tract bleeding.

    The etiology of abnormal genital tract bleeding encompasses a wide range of disorders that can be secondary to anatomic changes of the female genital tract, infection, endocrinologic disorders, malignancies, and systemic illness. Appropriate workup is guided by age-related differential diagnoses for abnormal bleeding. Modern diagnostic tools can quickly focus the evaluation and allow timely intervention. Most abnormal genital tract bleeding is uterine bleeding, which is one of the most common gynecologic problems that health care providers will face. It accounts for approximately 15% of office visits and 25% of gynecologic operations. Abnormal uterine bleeding in reproductive-age women is defined as bleeding at abnormal or unexpected times or by excessive flow at the time of an expected menses. The average menstrual cycle length and duration of flow is 28 days and 4 days, respectively, with an average blood loss of 35 cc (1). Any bleeding should be considered abnormal in premenarchal girls and in post-menopausal women except for those with predictable withdrawal bleeding taking hormone replacement therapy. This article will review the categories of abnormal genital tract bleeding and the diagnostic tools needed to establish the correct diagnosis. Common clinical cases will be presented to illustrate the presenting symptoms, differential diagnoses, workup, treatment, and long-term follow-up.

2/24. choriocarcinoma and human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) infection: a case report.

    The appropriate management of gynecological malignancies in human immunodeficiency virus (hiv)-infected patients is uncertain. gestational trophoblastic disease is highly curable and occurs predominantly among young females. However, such patients are often immunocompromised and cytotoxic agents may further compromise immunity. This case report demonstrates the successful management of choriocarcinoma in a hiv-infected patient.

3/24. Ovarian cancer: a case study.

    Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic malignancies in the united states, accounting for approximately 15,000 deaths each year. patients commonly present to their primary care providers with vague abdominal symptoms. health care providers need to become more aware of the importance of pursuing seemingly vague symptoms. A discerning knowledge of the risk factors and symptoms of this disease enables the clinician to institute appropriate assessment strategies, intervention, and referral, resulting in reduced mortality rates. This case report of a white woman aged in her 60s diagnosed with ovarian cancer stresses the need for early screening and detection, disease education, and prompt referral and management to displace the fear associated with the diagnosis and improve survival.

4/24. Bleeding from endometrial and vaginal malignant tumors treated with activated recombinant factor VII.

    The authors report two cases of successful employment of human recombinant activated factor VII in gynecological oncological patients (endometrial cancer and vaginal sarcoma) without pre-existing coagulopathy. They conclude that recombinant factor viia may be an important and effective drug in severe bleeding in gynecological oncology.

5/24. Endovascular management of postpartum massive vaginal bleeding. A case presenting with a pseudoaneurysm following subtotal hysterectomy.

    In the management of massive vaginal bleeding resulting from obstetrics and gynecological diseases, the percutaneous endovascular embolization procedures have been widely used in recent years. We report a case of massive vaginal hemorrhage due to arterial pseudoaneurysm formation following postpartum subtotal hysterectomy which was successfully treated via the percutaneous endovascular embolization.

6/24. Postmenopausal uterine inversion associated with endometrial polyps.

    BACKGROUND: Postmenopausal uterine inversion is an extremely rare gynecologic complication. We report a case of uterine inversion associated with endometrial polyps alone. CASE: A postmenopausal nullipara with a history of recurrent postmenopausal bleeding was evaluated for persistent vaginal bleeding. Benign endometrial polyps were found, and the patient's symptoms improved after a therapeutic dilation and curettage. She had acute onset of profuse vaginal bleeding 3 months later and a mass protruded from the cervix. A laparotomy revealed an inverted uterus that was resolved by the Haultain technique and was followed by total abdominal hysterectomy. CONCLUSION: Nonpuerperal uterine inversion associated with endometrial polyps was successfully treated surgically.

7/24. Leech bite: a rare gynecologic emergency.

    Vaginal bleeding as the result of a leech bite is a rare occurrence. We report 2 cases of vaginal bleeding in young girls that resulted from a leech bite and required treatment. Clinical presentation and management for young girls is described. health professionals working in rural areas where leech infestation is common should be aware that children are at risk for leech bites in the genital region; a high index of suspicion is of great help to make an early diagnosis and ensure prompt treatment.

8/24. The preoperative diagnosis of primary ovarian pregnancy.

    BACKGROUND: Ovarian pregnancies comprise 0.15% of all pregnancies and 0.15-3% of ectopic gestations, with an incidence of up to 1/7,000 deliveries. CASE: A single case of an ovarian gestation consistent with Spieglberg's four criteria in a primigravida without prior gynecological, medical, or surgical history is presented. Presumptive diagnosis was by thorough clinical examination with a single, palpable, adnexal mass in a patient with BMI of 19, supported with serial ultrasound and quantitative betaHCG-enabled preoperative diagnosis. CONCLUSION: Primary ovarian pregnancy may occur without any classical antecedent risk factors. ultrasonography can be a useful adjunct to clinical presentation and physical examination in allowing the preoperative diagnosis of ovarian gestation.

9/24. Selective arterial embolization for control of hemorrhage in pelvic malignancy: femoral and brachial catheter approaches.

    Selective transcatheter embolization with Gelfoam pledgets was used to control intractable pelvic hemorrhage in two patients with gynecologic malignancy. There were no complications or sequelae associated with the procedure, and no further bleeding occurred. This method requires only Seldinger catheterization techniques under local anesthesia and should be considered in patients whose medical condition precludes major surgery or in whom operative ligation cannot be performed.

10/24. Transcatheter arterial embolization in the management of gynecological neoplasms.

    Six patients were treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE). Three patients suffered from intractable genital bleeding; the other three patients were preoperative cases of a stage III adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix and two of these had gestational trophoblastic disease. Bleeding was stopped in all three cases of intractable hemorrhage; one patient rebled after 6 days. In the three preoperative cases, transcatheter arterial embolization was thought to be effective in decreasing intraoperative blood loss. There are no other reports of application of this technique to preoperative cases to decrease intraoperative blood loss in gynecological cases.
