  • Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate and Bone Mineral Density

    • Authors: Graeme J. Dennerstein, Shavi Fernando, Chiu Pin Teo, Alex Gorelik, Beverley Vollenhoven, Ian Fraser, John D. Wark
      Abstract: Background: Previous studies have suggested that depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) may result in a reduction in bone mineral density (BMD). This study further explores this relationship. This study was undertaken to assess the association between long-term DMPA use and areal BMD (aBMD) in a uniform manner in a single private specialist practice over two decades.Methods: Of 1,046 consecutive patients using DMPA in a single Melbourne specialist’s practice between 1981 and 2013, from 1992 102 were referred for dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans. Each was matched for age and body mass index with two participants from a reference group of 1,416 healthy female volunteers who underwent DXA scans at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.Results: A total of 306 participants were included in this study, 102 cases and 204 referents. DMPA users had lower aBMD at first testing (median duration of DMPA use 4.3 years (IQR 2.6 - 6.7 years) compared with the reference group, and lower aBMD persisted in users 2 - 5 years post cessation of DMPA. These differences from the reference group were statistically and potentially clinically significant. There was no evidence of accelerated bone loss at any site in the DMPA users during longitudinal observations on treatment, but the study had limited power to detect such an effect.Conclusions: DMPA use was associated with aBMD deficits during and after treatment. The findings demonstrate that long-term, controlled, prospective studies with adequate sample size are required to evaluate the potential clinical impact of DMPA use on bone health outcomes.

  • Early Menopause Is a Risk Factor for Postmenopausal Depression in Healthy
           

    • Authors: Sermin Kesebir, Sinem Metin, Meltem Dilek Tasdemir Erinc, Ahmet Yosmaoglu
      Abstract: Background: This study investigated whether age of menopause in bipolar women is different from that in healthy women and if there is a relationship between age at menopause and previous depressive episodes.Methods: We consecutively evaluated 86 euthymic and postmenopausal women who were older than 33 years and were diagnosed with bipolar disorder according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV). The healthy control group comprised 100 individuals of similar age. After the diagnostic interview, bipolar patients completed the Mood Disorders Diagnosis and Follow-Up Form (SKIP-TURK).Results: Age at menopause in bipolar women was earlier than that of the controls (P = 0.001). Age at menopause correlated with age of onset of bipolar disorder (r = 0.453). A strong inverse correlation was found between the age of menopause and total duration of depressive episodes (r = -0.542).Conclusion: Early-onset bipolar disorder is associated with early ages of menopause. Age at menopause seems to be related to duration of depressive period. Considering the effects of hypoestrogenemia on ischemic heart diseases and cognitive impairment, it is important that the risk which is already high for both situations should be reduced, and depressive periods should be prevented.

  • Advanced Diabetic Eye Disease in Pregnancy

    • Authors: Puspha Raman, Bethel Indira Livingstone
      Abstract: Women with pre-gestational diabetes are at risk of progression of diabetic retinopathy during the pregnancy. The adverse effects of pregnancy on retinal status persist into the first year postpartum. Diabetic eye disease may develop for the first time during pregnancy, and visual impairment at this stage has serious implications for both the patient and her family. Established sight-threatening retinopathy should be treated at an earlier stage in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant diabetics with a similar disease. This case report highlights a case of diabetic retinopathy in pregnancy which progressed rapidly and was successfully treated with timely surgical intervention resulting in good final visual outcome.

  • Preservation of Six Renal Arteries in Laparoscopic Para-Aortic
           Lymphadenectomy: A Case Report

    • Authors: Tsuyoshi Kondo, Hiromasa Sasaki, Kohshiro Nakao, Shinya Hirabuki, Tsutomu Hoshiba
      Abstract: The presence of more than one renal artery has been commonly observed, and approximately 10% - 40% of examined cadavers have an accessory renal artery, which corresponds to each segmental artery. Thus, it is important to preserve these arteries during para-aortic lymphadenectomy via laparotomy. Here, we present a case involving a patient with ovarian cancer who underwent laparoscopic para-aortic lymphadenectomy with preservation of six renal arteries. Although two left renal arteries were observed through contrast CT, surgical findings revealed two right and four left renal arteries, including blood vessels, which were not identified preoperatively. Moreover, a subtype of the left renal vein was present. In previous reports on gynecological laparoscopic surgery, the maximum number of accessory renal arteries was two, which is a common finding. With regard to en bloc removal in laparoscopic para-aortic lymphadenectomy with renal vascular abnormalities, it is recommended to reduce the lymph nodes to the minimum size necessary to avoid tumor scattering, renovascular injury, and surgical field failure. Furthermore, it is difficult to diagnose renovascular abnormalities using only contrast CT preoperatively. Thus, in laparoscopic surgery, whereby the viewing direction of the operative field is fixed, the procedure should be performed with due consideration of the renovascular abnormalities.

  • Beyond HELLP: Peripartum Catastrophic Thromboembolism due to Hereditary
           Diffuse Gastric Cancer

    • Authors: Zara Bashir, Omar Rahman, Rajat Kapoor, Udit Dhal, Emily Gundert
      Abstract: Peripartum thrombocytopenia and thrombotic events are usually attributable to diseases like Hemolysis Elevated Liver Enzymes Low Platelets (HELLP) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Malignancy is a rare cause and gastric cancer even more unusual. We report the case of a 28-year-old female with undiagnosed hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) in the peripartum period initially presenting with nausea and blurry vision at 35 weeks’ gestation. Following cesarean section 1 week later, she developed thrombocytopenia and elevated blood pressure; HELLP was diagnosed. Development of acute kidney injury, decreasing platelet count and anemia lead to consideration of TTP. Despite plasmapheresis she had no improvement, developed respiratory failure and had acute large vessel arterial and venous thrombosis with multiple cerebral, renal, splenic and lower extremity arterial infarctions. Deep venous thrombosis of lower limbs was also seen. She was placed on corticosteroids and anticoagulation. Following extensive workup, vegetations on mitral valve were seen on echocardiography and she was started on antibiotics for endocarditis. She deteriorated into refractory shock, multiple organ failure and died on postpartum day 8. Autopsy done revealed diffuse submucosal gastric adenocarcinoma (linitus plastica). Metastases were present on small bowel, fallopian tubes, ovary and the placenta. Mitral valve had marantic vegetations. Tumor cells showed CDH1 gene mutation. Such a diagnosis in pregnancy is very challenging due to overlapping symptoms leading to misdiagnosis. Here, thromboembolism was malignancy-related and rapid spread probably hormone-associated. The purpose of this report is to highlight the need to warrant investigation for cancer, among workup for other common conditions, for atypical thromboembolism in pregnancy.
