  • Uterine rupture in a primigravid patient with an unscarred bicornuate
           uterus at term

    • Authors: Brad Nitzsche; Maggie Dwiggins; Susan Catt
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: Publication date: July 2017

      Author(s): Brad Nitzsche, Maggie Dwiggins, Susan Catt
      Background Uterine rupture of an unscarred primigravid uterus is an exceedingly rare event. Cases of spontaneous rupture of an unscarred bicornuate uterus have been reported, but typically occur in the first or second trimester. Case A 28-year-old primigravida at 37weeks gestation with a known bicornuate uterus and no prior surgery underwent an emergent cesarean section after presenting with severe abdominal pain and signs of fetal compromise. She was found to have a uterine rupture with the fetus free in the abdomen accompanied by a large hemoperitoneum. Both mother and baby did well postoperatively. Conclusion Bicornuate uterus may be an independent risk factor for uterine rupture, which can occur in primigravid patients and at any gestation.

  • Successful pregnancy located in a uterine cesarean scar: A case report

    • Authors: Shoko Tamada; Hisashi Masuyama; Jota Maki; Takeshi Eguchi; Takashi Mitsui; Eriko Eto; Kei Hayata; Yuji Hiramatsu

      Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy. Because CSP carries a high risk of uterine rupture and life-threatening bleeding, the pregnancy should be terminated upon confirmation of diagnosis. There have been few reports of CSP with successful delivery. We present a case of CSP under expectant management, with delivery via planned cesarean section at 35weeks of gestation. This report suggests that successful pregnancy outcome can be achieved in some women with uterine cesarean scar, but further analysis and additional studies are required in order to describe the optimal protocol of expectant management in CSP.

  • Postoperative care of symphysiotomy performed for severe shoulder dystocia
           with fetal demise

    • Authors: Joy Anderson; R. Moss Hampton; Jonathan Lugo
      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 March 2017
      Source:Case Reports in Women's Health
      Author(s): Joy Anderson, R. Moss Hampton, Jonathan Lugo
      Background Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric emergency which occurs in 0.2–3% of all births ACOG Committee on Practice Bulletins-Obstetrics and The American College of Obstetrician and Gynecologists (2002) . Symphysiotomy is a treatment option reserved primarily for developing countries where mortality rates of Cesarean delivery are 1–2% Monjok et al. (2013) . Case A G3P2002 with a history of two prior vaginal deliveries had a term delivery complicated by a severe shoulder dystocia. She underwent emergent symphysiotomy at an outside institution, with delivery of a dead macrosomic infant. She was transferred to our tertiary care center for further care. Conclusion Symphysiotomy is rarely performed in the United States. We submit our postoperative management to add to the literature of this rarely performed obstetric intervention. Précis Symphysiotomy for severe shoulder dystocia is rarely utilized in the United States. We describe a case of symphysiotomy done for severe shoulder dystocia at an outside institution, and the patient's subsequent care at our institution.

      Objective To report the management of a large uterine leiomyoma with diffuse cystic degeneration in a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Design Case Report. Setting Cleveland Clinic Florida, Department of Gynecology, Section of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic surgery, Weston Florida. Patient(s) A 52-year old woman with ADPKD with a large abdominal mass, abnormal uterine bleeding and symptomatic anemia. Imaging revealed a giant intramural cystic lesion of the uterus compressing the inferior vena cava. Intervention(s) Uterine artery embolization and blood transfusion followed by a computed tomography guided cyst aspiration were performed on admission to alleviate anemia and abdominal pain and distension. Total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy was performed in an outpatient setting. Main Outcome Measure(s) Management of large cystic degeneration of leiomyoma. Results Normal recovery from definitive surgery. Surgical pathology confirmed a benign, cystically dilated leiomyoma. Conclusion This case demonstrates the management of giant intramural cyst lesion of the uterus using a minimally invasive surgical approach, as opposed to emergency surgery via laparotomy. Capsule Large uterine leiomyoma with diffuse cystic degeneration in a patient with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, in which step-wise treatments allows successful minimally invasive hysterectomy.

      Introduction Gut prolapse through vagina is rare complication with only few cases reported in the literature. This article highlights untrained professionals induced obstetrical trauma as a cause of vaginal evisceration leading to serious but preventable complications. Presentation of Case Case 1: A 27years old female, P2L0, had full term vaginal delivery of an IUD baby and presented 4days later with small bowel evisceration through poaterior vaginal wall. Case 2: A 24years old female, P1A1 had underwent unsafe abortion and presented in shock, with small bowel evisceration through anterior uterine wall. Case 3: A 26years female, P2A1, underwent evacuation for incomplete abortion and presented with omental prolapse through anterior uterine wall. Discussion Obstetrical trauma with associated evisceration of intraabdominal contents is a potentially serious complication that requires surgical intervention. General awareness may decrease these unsafe practices and thus would have impact in reducing maternal morbidity and mortality.

      Objective To report a case of a habitual aborter that had a pregnancy reach near term and successfully delivered a viable female infant. Design Report of a unique case of a G10P1 that was successfully able to maintain a pregnancy by maintaining serum levels of estradiol and progesterone at or above 200pg/dL and 25ng/dL respectively. This case provides a benchmark for exogenous support of estradiol and progesterone throughout pregnancy. Setting A private advanced reproductive center. Patient 39-year-old G10P1091 diagnosed to have antiphospholipid syndrome but continued to have continuous miscarriages despite accepted treatment. In addition, 8 products of conception were sent for cytogenetic testing and all were found to be normal. Interventions Examination, laboratory studies, imaging, clinical judgment, and knowledge of previous treatment failures were used to guide the treatment of this patient. Fertility was achieved with continuous supplementation of progesterone, estrogen, LMW-heparin, and prednisone. Main Outcome Measure Delivery of viable infant. Results This advanced reproductive age woman had three subsequent pregnancies. While compliant with our prescribed protocol, the patient successfully carried two pregnancies to viability. Conclusion Clinicians should be alert to the possibility of a luteal phase defect when a patient presents with recurrent fertility problems and multiple spontaneous abortions.

      Acute intussusception in adults is rare and particularly so in pregnant women. Its incidence ranges from 0.067% to 0.0015% (Choi et al., 2005 Choi et al. (2005) [1]). The non-specific presenting symptoms may be attributed to the pregnancy itself, making the diagnosis difficult. When it happens, however, it causes considerable morbidity and mortality for the pregnant woman and the fetus. In adults, such intussusceptions are mainly secondary to an intestinal disease and frequently a tumor. We present the case of a 21-year-old pregnant woman who was diagnosed of spontaneous acute intussusception at nine weeks of gestation and therapeutic management.

      The most common pathology of the Bartholin's gland is with its draining duct. Marsupialisation or fistulisation are the most common therapies. In some women, the clinical problem is with the Bartholin's gland itself, being hyperplasia with or without duct rupture in the subcutaneous tissue. Presenting symptoms and signs of nodular hyperplasia are pain and (nodular or diffuse) swelling especially during sexual arousal, or simply a symptomless mass. During surgery, the striking features are subcutaneous free-floating mucus and nodular enlargement ‘deep’ in the labium majus. The optimal surgical approach is an excision through an incision alongside the labiocrural fold. We describe three cases to provide insight into the various clinical presentations and management problems. Nodular hyperplasia of Bartholin's gland is easily misdiagnosed because of its rare occurrence and diversity of signs and symptoms. An unusual presentation or clinical course of disease may indicate nodular hyperplasia.

      Background Coccidioidomycosis is an endemic fungal infection found most commonly in the Southwestern United States, Northwestern Mexico, and parts of Central and South America. Although infection is relatively uncommon during pregnancy, it is imperative to have an index of suspicion in order to diagnosis and begin timely treatment to prevent dissemination and dire consequences. Case report. A 33-year-old Hispanic female was evaluated after she was involved in an automobile accident. Radiographic evaluation showed a 3.2×3.2cm cavitary thick-walled lesion. A biopsy was negative for malignancy. Evaluation was positive for coccidioimycosis by complement fixation reaction. Four months later, the patient presented 7weeks into a pregnancy with massive hemoptysis. Bronchoscopy revealed bleeding from the right upper lobe and emergency embolization was performed. The patient had a spontaneous abortion 9days after admission. The right upper and middle lobes of the lung were resected due to continuous bleeding. A subsequent pregnancy was un-eventful. Coccidioidomycosis titers remained negative throughout the second pregnancy. Discussion This case demonstrates the potential for severe pulmonary coccidioidomycosis and vascular strain of pregnancy-associated vascular expansion in the first trimester of pregnancy and the possibility of a favorable pregnancy outcome in subsequent pregnancies after appropriate treatment. The route of feto-maternal transmission and placental lesions in coccidioidomycosis are discussed.

      Objective Highlight a complete molar pregnancy with possible complications and pertinent clinical information to aide doctors in recognizing the disease quickly to provide treatment to limit adverse outcomes. Context Complete molar pregnancy is rare and compromises 1:500–1:2000 pregnancies [1-4]. As technology has improved, the presentation of complete molar pregnancy has changed [1,5-6]. Summary A 19-year old African American female presented to the emergency room (ER) three times within 14days for abdominal pain. A pregnancy test was positive and on the third visit quantitative β-human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) was elevated without signs of an intrauterine pregnancy (IUP). Dilation and curettage (D&C) was done with small perforation of the uterus. Pathology report indicated a complete molar pregnancy. The patient failed to follow-up and returned to ER 22days later where an abdominal mass was found prompting surgery. Hematomas and abdominal adhesions were removed and again pathology showed a complete molar pregnancy. Follow-up HCG levels failed to decrease appropriately so the patient was referred to oncology where metastatic choriocarcinoma of the liver was diagnosed. Chemotherapy was initiated and HCG monitored. Patient was readmitted for infections and complications, but did eventually have her HCG return to zero. Data sources Clinical Key, Purdue Library, and UpToDate were used to search for literature. Conclusion Prompt recognition of a complete mole may lead to a less extensive disease process. Presentation has recently changed so it is important to know signs. Patient compliance likely results in fewer complications and costs.

      Broad ligament pregnancy is also known as inter ligamentous pregnancy which is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy. Very few successful live births have been reported in this condition, where such pregnancies reached term and with live birth of a baby. A case of 28year old primigravida of 35weeks gestation with oligoamnios was referred to our hospital. A right broad ligament pregnancy was confirmed after an ultrasound and an MRI. She was taken up for surgery and an incision was given on the anterior leaf of the broad ligament and a male live fetus was extracted. Placenta was found on the posterior leaf of the broad ligament and it was removed without any undue haemorrhage. Uterus was lying medial to the sac and was around ten weeks in size. Both mother and baby were discharged on seventh postoperative day in good health condition.
