11/24. Transcatheter embolotherapy of massive bleeding after surgery for benign gynecologic disorders.

    Transcatheter embolotherapy is a well-established technique for control of bleeding in patients with pelvic trauma and pelvic malignancies, but it has been rarely used in massive vaginal bleeding after surgery for benign gynecologic disorders. We report five patients with massive post-operative vaginal hemorrhage following total abdominal hysterectomy (n = 3), repeated dilatation and curettage (n = 1) and cesarean section (n = 1), all successfully controlled with transcatheter embolization after many operative procedures had failed to stop the hemorrhage. The age of the patients ranged from 21 to 36 years. All patients underwent embolization of both internal iliac arteries with Gelfoam alone or in combination with stainless steel coils. The bleeding stopped immediately in all patients. Four patients recovered completely and one patient died of disseminated intravascular coagulation and multi-organ failure.

12/24. Embolic management of rare hemorrhagic gynecologic and obstetrical conditions.

    Severe life-threatening hemorrhage was controlled by angiographic management in 3 patients with bleeding due to unusual gynecological abnormalities and in 1 patient with a rare obstetrically related hemorrhage. Successful management of such rare causes of bleeding emphasizes that early angiographic intervention can, in selected patients, reduce the need for an immediate or subsequent surgical procedure and allow conservative management followed by disease-specific therapy.

13/24. Congenital arteriovenous malformation of the female pelvis: a gynecologic perspective.

    Nine female patients with the rare congenital arteriovenous malformation of the pelvis were treated at new york University Medical Center in the past 8 years. The patients varied significantly in the anatomic location of the arteriovenous malformation, clinical presentation, and natural course of disease. A gynecologic perspective on the management of this condition is presented, which ranges from a conservative approach with preservation of childbearing potential to extensive pelvic surgery. The important role of modern interventional radiology technology and the multidisciplinary approach are stressed. The unpredictable course of disease after any intervention should be emphasized in planning the management of pelvic arteriovenous malformation.

14/24. Burkitt's-like lymphoma presenting as a gynecologic tumor.

15/24. Chronic myeloid leukemia presenting as a gynecological emergency.

    An unusual case of chronic myeloid leukemia presenting to the gynecological unit as a case of septic abortion is presented. Though history and clinical examination suggested the possibility of double pathology of septic abortion and chronic myeloid leukemia, histology of the products removed from the uterus showed it to be leukemic deposits. The diagnosis of leukemia was confirmed by marrow aspiration (trephine biopsy). Careful clinical examination and systematic investigation helped in diagnosing the pathology and to treat her appropriately.

16/24. Arteriovenous malformation of the uterus and pelvis.

    Arteriovenous malformation of the uterus and adnexa is a rare entity; its paucity is established in the gynecologic literature. That does not detract, however, from diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties encountered by the gynecologist faced with the serious problem of hemorrhage and its sequelae. Most reported cases have been treated by hysterectomy. Two patients with conservative management by selective arterial embolization under angiography are detailed herein. The method was successful in one patient and failed in the other.

17/24. Surgical control of pelvic hemorrhage: bilateral hypogastric artery ligation and method of ovarian artery ligation.

    Hypogastric artery ligation and internal iliac artery ligation are the same procedure. It has been several years since extensive work on this procedure has been reported in the literature. Since this has proved to be a potentially life-saving technique in serious obstetric and pelvic hemorrhage, it is somewhat surprising to find that the procedure is poorly understood. We have reviewed this procedure in depth, emphasizing important aspects and restating indications for its use. We have also included a case presentation in which we recently performed bilateral ligation of the hypogastric arteries and the ovarian arteries to control intractable hemorrhage. Although ovarian artery ligation is often mentioned as an adjunct in controlling pelvic hemorrhage, we believe the technique has never been described in the English language. We present a surgical technique for ligating the ovarian arteries, believing that teaching both bilateral hypogastric artery ligation and ovarian artery ligation should be an integral part of obstetric and gynecologic training.

18/24. Intraoperative ultrasound for gynecologic procedures.

    Recent technological advances in portable dynamic imaging equipment allow for the performance of intraoperative ultrasound examinations during certain gynecologic procedures. Reported is the authors' technique for such an examination and outlined are specific vaginal and abdominal gynecologic procedures wherein adjunctive ultrasound may facilitate performance of the operative procedure, enhance safety, and decrease the possibility of complications.

19/24. A gynecologic presentation of mixed phakomatosis.

    The case of a 31-year-old Jamaican woman with mixed phakomatosis is presented whose main complaint, bringing her to medical attention, was intractable vaginal bleeding. A previously undescribed form of uterine pathology, including hypertrophic varicose channels within the endometrium, represented the underlying cause for the patient's bleeding. The histological picture was similar to the vascular pathology in other organ systems. It is suggested that the reproductive organs may be involved in the systemic disease process of phakomatoses in a similar way as other, already recognized, organs. The phakomatoses are a group of poorly understood and underrecognized disorders. As multisystemic processes, myriad signs and symptoms may offer a clue to their diagnosis. The presentation of a mixed phakomatosis as a gynecological disorder, however, has not been reported. The following case illustrates this unusual mode of presentation.

20/24. Pelvic abscess complicating embolic therapy for control of bleeding cervical carcinoma and simultaneous radiation therapy.

    Embolization therapy for control of bleeding has an important therapeutic role in gynecologic malignancies. This is the first report of a pelvic abscess as a sequela of embolic treatment for bleeding cervical cancer in a patient simultaneously receiving radiotherapy. Other complications of transcatheter embolizationare reviewed. methods of preventing complications when embolization and radiation are combined are discussed.
