  • [Title] [Seven-year-experience in the hysteroresection of submucous myomas].
  • AIM OF THE RESEARCH: to summarize the results of hysteroscopic resections of submucous myomas, performed in the last 7 years in our clinic and to compare the results with those cited in the literature.
  • RESULTS: 142 submucous myomas were resected.
  • The mean diameter was 32.15 mm (from 5 to 55 mm); 8 myomas were 50 mm and more in diameter.
  • After 3 years 7 women, out of 31 observed, had abnormal bleeding; 5 women underwent hysterectomies because of intramural myomas, atypical endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial cancer, uterine prolapse.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of the study confirmed the advantages and the excellent potentialities of the hysteroscopy in the treatment of the submucous myomas.
  • For this reason hysteroscopy should be the method of choice for treatment of the submucous myomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Immunohistochemistry and quanta Qd600 staining were used to detect the expression of Cav-1 in tissues from benign lung lesions (n = 17) and NSCLC (n = 123).
  • RESULTS: Cav-1 protein was highly expressed in cytoplasm and cell membrane of normal bronchial epithelium, alveolar epithelium, endothelial cells, fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells.
  • Amongst the NSCLC group, there was no statistically significant difference in Cav-1 protein expression in different histologic types (P = 0.552) and tumor grades (P = 0.160).
  • On the other hand, Cav-1 protein immunoreactivity was remarkably higher in advanced tumor stage: 72.7% in stage III A + III B, compared with 9.4% in stage I A + I B and 38.3% in stage II A + II B (P = 0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: High expression of Cav-1 protein is respected of the aggressive clinical behavior and advanced tumor stage.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Leptin and leptin receptor expression in the myometrium and uterine myomas: Is leptin involved in tumor development?
  • Evidence has been provided that leptin, in addition to being involved in obesity development, plays a role in the regulation of the female reproductive system, angiogenesis and tumor growth.
  • Uterine myoma is a rather common disease that develops more frequently in obese than lean women, where plasma leptin concentrations are elevated.
  • RT-PCR and Western blotting showed that leptin was expressed, as mRNA and protein, in several uterine myomas but not in normal myometrium, while leptin receptors were expressed in both tissues.
  • Immunocytochemistry indicated that leptin-immunoreactivity was located in both myometrial cells and blood-vessel walls of uterine myomas.
  • Leptin(22-56), at concentrations of 10(-7) and 10(-6) M, enhanced the proliferative activity of both the normal myometrium and myoma cells in primary culture.
  • Taken together, our findings allow us to suggest that leptin, acting through autocrine-paracrine mechanism(s), may be involved in the development of uterine myomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Up-regulation of apoptosis by gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist in cultures of endometrial cells from women with symptomatic myomas.
  • BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH-a), which is widely used in the medical treatment of symptomatic myomas, on the rate of endometrial cell apoptosis in cultures from women with symptomatic myomas.
  • METHODS: The study included 36 women with symptomatic myomas without endometrial hyperplasia or endometrial carcinoma, and 22 controls.
  • RESULTS: Levels of spontaneous apoptosis were significantly lower in endometrial cultures from patients with symptomatic myomas than in those from control subjects (P < 0.01).
  • Concentrations as low as 10(-7) M GnRH-a enhanced apoptosis in endometrial cultures from patients with symptomatic myomas (3.48% +/- 0.27% apoptotic cells in untreated samples and 25.45 +/- 0.95% in cells treated with 10(-7) M GnRH-a; P <0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: GnRH-a stimulates apoptosis in endometrial cells from patients with symptomatic myomas and this could, at least in part, account for the therapeutic action of GnRH-a.

  • [Title] Dermal non-neural granular cell tumour (so-called primitive polypoid granular cell tumour): a distinctive entity further delineated in a clinicopathological study of 11 cases.
  • AIMS: Cutaneous and soft tissue granular cell tumour is a well-characterized benign neoplasm of neural origin.
  • However, there remains a subcategory of granular cell tumour, first described by Le Boit as 'primitive polypoid granular cell tumour', that shows no obvious line of differentiation.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Eleven cases of dermal non-neural granular cell tumour were retrieved from one of the authors referral archives (E.C.) and both the histology and immunohistochemistry reviewed.
  • The tumours were composed of elongated spindle-shaped to polygonal or round cells with prominent granular cell change, and tumour nuclei showing mild focal atypia to rare moderate atypia.
  • Immunohistochemical labelling of the tumour cells demonstrated expression for NKI-C3 (n = 11), focal, weak positivity for CD68 (n = 10) and FXIIIa (n = 2).
  • There was negative staining for S100 protein, smooth muscle actin, Melan-A, CD34, desmin and cytokeratin.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PEComas, occasionally associated with the tuberous sclerosis complex, are defined by the presence of perivascular epithelioid cells that coexpress muscle and melanocytic markers.
  • This family of tumors includes angiomyolipoma (AML), clear cell sugar tumor of the lung (CCST), lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), and very rare tumors in other locations.
  • Immunohistochemistry for pan-cytokeratin (CK), S-100 protein, smooth muscle actins (SMA), desmin, vimentin, HMB45, Melan-A, microphthalmia transcription factor (MiTF), TFE3, CD117, and CD34 was performed.
  • At last available clinical follow-up, 2 patients (8%) were dead of disease, 4 patients (17%) were alive with metastatic or unresectable local disease, and 18 patients (75%) were alive with no evidence of disease.
  • Recurrence and/or metastasis was strongly associated tumor size > median size (8 cm), mitotic activity greater than 1/50 HPF, and necrosis.
  • We conclude that PEComas of soft tissue and gynecologic origin may be classified as "benign," "of uncertain malignant potential," or "malignant."
  • Small PEComas without any worrisome histologic features are most likely benign.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The myoma weights were calculated and converted into mass units (g) by an assumed smooth muscle density of 1.04 g/cm3.
  • Myomas were weighed immediately after operation, and the correlation between these two weights was assessed by linear regression and limits of agreement.
  • RESULTS: Of 109 patients, 203 myomas were removed laparoscopically with a mean ultrasound-measured myoma weight of 137.9 (100.7) g, a diameter of the dominant myoma of 6.30 (1.92) cm, and an operation time of 125 (41) min.
  • Strong correlations were observed between the ultrasound-measured and operated myoma weights.
  • A predictive model, in which operation time = 0.14 x ultrasound-measured myoma weight + 1.68 x BMI + 5.21 x operated myoma number + 0.06 x (ultrasound-measured myoma weight x operated myoma number) + 43.97, was developed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Operation time was significantly related to the myoma weight measured by ultrasound.

  • [Title] Submucous myomas: a new presurgical classification to evaluate the viability of hysteroscopic surgical treatment--preliminary report.
  • STUDY OBJECTIVE: To develop a new preoperative classification of submucous myomas for evaluating the viability and the degree of difficulty of hysteroscopic myomectomy.
  • DESIGN: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-3) SETTING: University teaching hospitals.
  • PATIENTS: Fifty-five patients who underwent hysteroscopic resection of submucous myomas.
  • INTERVENTION: The possibility of total resection of the myoma, the operating time, the fluid deficit, and the frequency of any complications were considered.
  • The myomas were classified according to the Classification of the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) and by our group's new classification (NC), which considers not only the degree of penetration of the myoma into the myometrium, but also adds in such parameters as the distance of the base of the myoma from the uterine wall, the size of the nodule (cm), and the topography of the uterine cavity.
  • MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: In 57 myomas, hysteroscopic surgery was considered complete.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We believe that the NC gives more clues as to the difficulties of a hysteroscopic myomectomy than the standard ESGE classification.
  • It should be stressed that the number of hysteroscopic myomectomies used in this analysis was low, and it would be interesting to evaluate the performance of the classification in a larger number of patients.

  • [Title] Tissue levels of cadmium and trace elements in patients with myoma and uterine cancer.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), iron (Fe), magnesium (Mg) and calcium (Ca) concentrations in uterine cancer and uterine myoma.
  • Tissue levels of six elements in 15 uterine cancers and 28 uterine myomas were measured by atomic absorption spectrometry.
  • The samples were collected from women aged 32-79 (uterine myomas, uterine cancer and non-lesion uterine tissues from the same women).
  • The results showed that the tissue Cd concentration was significantly lower in myoma than in non-lesion tissue.
  • In uterine myoma, a significant increase of Mg and Mg/Ca ratio, as well as a decrease in Fe concentration were found.
  • Statistical analysis showed no correlation between smoking habits, age, menopausal status and concentration of Cu, Zn, Fe, Mg and Ca trace metals in myoma or cancer tissue.

  • Perivascular neoplasms comprise traditionally glomus tumor and hemangiopericytoma (HPC).
  • Whereas glomus tumor represents a well-defined entity, the existence of HPC as a separate entity has been questioned because a number of neoplasms of different lines of differentiation are characterized by a HPC-like vascular growth pattern.
  • Immunohistochemical stainings using alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA), desmin, and h-caldesmon antibodies were performed, and clinical data and follow-up information were obtained from referring pathologists.
  • Histologically, in all cases, numerous thin-walled vessels and a concentric, perivascular arrangement of ovoid, plump spindled to round myoid tumor cells was seen.
  • However, a broad morphologic spectrum ranging from hypocellular, fibroma-like (3 cases), myofibroma-like (2 cases), angioleiomyoma-like (12 cases), and HPC-like neoplasms (13 cases) to classic myopericytomas (14 cases) and immature, cellular lesions (2 cases) was noted.
  • Despite overlapping morphologic features to angioleiomyoma and myofibroma, myopericytoma represents a distinct perivascular, myoid neoplasm of skin and soft tissues, characterized by a broad morphologic spectrum of concentrically, perivascularly growing myoid tumor cells that stain positively for ASMA and often for h-caldesmon, whereas desmin is usually negative.
  • Most cases of myopericytoma behave in a benign fashion, but local recurrences and rarely metastases may occur in atypical and malignant neoplasms.

  • Grossly, cut surface of the tumor appeared as the gray fibrous tissue without any definited lump detected.
  • The tumor cells extended downward under the epithelium and infiltrated between the fat tissue, nerve fibers as well as the capillaries making a lesion looked somewhat like a harmatoma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the spindle cells were uniformly positive for vimentin, weakly positive for CD34, and negative for alpha-smooth muscle actin (SMA), muscle specific actin (HHF35), desmin, h-caldesmon, CD99, S-100 protein, bcl-2, beta-catenin, estrogen and progesterone receptors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: PVF is a benign mesenchymal lesion with a predilection of involving the vulva of prepubertal girls or adults in rare cases.

  • [Title] The effect of myomectomy on health-related quality of life of women with myoma uteri.
  • Many studies have evaluated the effect of other methods rather than myomectomy on HRQoL, and have focused solely on the presence of myoma without regarding any concurrent pelvic pathology.
  • METHODS: This study involved 80 patients with myomas and 75 controls.
  • Domains of the Short Form - 36 (SF-36) questionnaire were evaluated pre- and postoperatively in 72 women with myomas.
  • Furthermore, any correlations between myoma characteristics and SF-36 physical components (PC) and mental components (MC) were investigated.
  • RESULTS: All SF-36 domains were lower in women with myoma uteri than in the control group, except for physical and social function.
  • There was no correlation between PC and MC scores and the number, location and total volume of the myomas.
  • However, fundal and posteriorly positioned myomas were related with the PC score, and posterior myomas with the MC score.
  • CONCLUSION: The findings from this study suggest that myomectomy improves HRQoL, and that myoma characteristics may modulate quality of life domains.

  • [Title] Role of a bipolar resectoscope in subfertile women with submucous myomas and menstrual disorders.
  • METHODS: From January 2000 to December 2005, we studied 59 women of reproductive age with menorrhagia, submucous myomas and one or more infertility factors.
  • Fifteen of the 59 women displayed submucous myoma type O (intracavitary), 34 displayed submucous myoma type I (less than 50% within the myometrium) and the remaining 10 women displayed myoma type II (over 50% being within the myometrium).
  • The mean age and standard deviation of these patients was 34.6 +/- 4.4 years and the average size of myomas was 15 +/- 10 mm.
  • Treatment of these myomas was by hysteroscopic resection using a bipolar resectoscope.
  • The pregnancy rate was notably higher when the sole reason of subfertility was the presence of myoma (54.16%), and when the size of the myoma was equal to 2.5 cm (75%) or more.
  • CONCLUSION: The use of the bipolar resectoscope in hysteroscopic removal of small submucous myomas is shown to be both feasible and effective in controlling menorrhagia and increasing the pregnancy rate in subfertile women, when submucous myomas are the only reason of infertility.

  • Uterine myomas are common but erythrocytosis caused by these is rarely seen.
  • A voluminous, retroperitoneally located and focally degenerated myoma was associated with severe secondary erythrocytosis (haematocrit: 65.5%) which resolved after hysterectomy.
  • Local tissue hypoxia, which is more prone to develop in a pedunculated myoma, stimulates the process.
  • Other prerequisites are a very large size of the myoma and the absence of menometrorrhagia of a severity such as to cause a depletion in iron reserves.

  • RESULTS. Vertical incision of the uterus is performed in 57.5% due to prematurity and lack of enough space for transversal incision (lower uterine segment not yet formed), in 25 % the cause is situs transverses of the foetus and the rest of the cases are related with technical difficulties in isthmicotransversal approach (myoma praevia, anomalies of the uterus, adhesions of the omentum). C.S. is performed for mean 66 min. in the main group vs. 74 min. with controls (p < 0.05).

  • [Title] Laparoscopic uterine vessel occlusion in the treatment of women with symptomatic uterine myomas with and without adding laparoscopic myomectomy: 4-year results.
  • STUDY OBJECTIVE: To estimate the necessity of laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) in the treatment of women with symptomatic uterine myomas who are undergoing laparoscopic uterine vessel occlusion (LUVO).
  • DESIGN: A comparative observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-3).
  • PATIENTS: In all, 163 patients with symptomatic, uncomplicated myomas warranting myomectomy.
  • INTERVENTIONS: Symptomatic myomas treated by LUVO with or without LM.
  • CONCLUSION: Although LUVO is a less invasive procedure in the treatment of most women with symptomatic myomas, it is also less effective for symptom control and has shorter durable symptom relief compared with LUVO+LM.

  • Interestingly, among melanocytic lesions, the expression of these novel variants is significantly downregulated, compared with benign nevi, in the most aggressive ones, i.e. in vertical growth phase melanoma and, even more, in metastatic melanoma cells, characterized by invasiveness properties and usually highly resistant to apoptosis.

  • Uterine myomas or fibromas are benign, hormone-responding tumours of, respectively, smooth muscles and fibroblasts and their aetiology induces a significant interest.
  • In myomas the presence of aromatase was detected and, in addition, oestrogen was found to be synthesized in myoma cells.
  • The studies were performed on myoma patients of generative age and those in peri-menopausal age.
  • Expression of TRAF2 and TRAF6 proteins was examined using immunohistochemistry and Western blot approach in small and large uterine myomas isolated from women of various age.
  • In addition, the evaluation was conducted at the periphery of every myoma.
  • We indicated that the level of both tested proteins in myomas is higher than in control.
  • TRAF2 level in myometrium was lower than in myomas but higher than in control.

  • [Title] HYAL1 hyaluronidase in prostate cancer: a tumor promoter and suppressor.
  • However, it is controversial whether hyaluronidase (e.g., HYAL1) functions as a tumor promoter or as a suppressor.
  • Blocking HYAL1 expression inhibited tumor growth by 4- to 7-fold, whereas high HYAL1 producing transfectants either did not form tumors (DU145) or grew 3.5-fold slower (PC-3 ML).
  • Whereas vector and moderate HYAL1 producers generated muscle and blood vessel infiltrating tumors, HYAL1-AS tumors were benign and contained smaller capillaries.
  • Specimens of high HYAL1 producers were 99% free of tumor cells.
  • This study shows that, depending on the concentration, HYAL1 functions as a tumor promoter and as a suppressor and provides a basis for anti-hyaluronidase and high-hyaluronidase treatments for cancer.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of intramural and subserous myomas in in vitro fertilization cycles, as well as its perinatal results.
  • The variables of size and type of myomas, as well as variables of IVF cycles, implantation and pregnancy rates, and perinatal results were analyzed.
  • We calculated the chi-square test to analyze the relationship between myomas and pregnancy.
  • RESULTS: We analyzed 431 cycles made in 364 patients divided into two groups: study cases (with myomas-65 cycles) and control cases (without myomas-366 cycles).
  • Logistic regression showed that myomas do not affect the possibility of getting pregnant.
  • CONCLUSION: Intramural and subserous myomas < 5 cm do not seem to have an effect in the IVF cycles nor in its perinatal results.
  • In women with myomas < 5 cm that no dot distortion the uterine cavity it is questionable the usefulness of a myomectomy prior to IVF cycles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Extracranial meningioma is a rare tumor, and most of the time only after histopathologic examination is diagnosis possible.
  • Incisional biopsy of the lesion was reported as spindle cell tumor.
  • Computed tomography scan showed large enhancing predominantly extracranial lesion located in the right anterior frontotemporal region extending into the infratemporal fossa and a relatively thin sheet of tumor on the intracranial aspect of the thickened temporal.
  • Intraoperative impression was malignant tumor involving the temporalis muscle, and a near total excision of the lesion was performed.
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative suspicion of a meningioma in this patient would have resulted in a more aggressive surgical approach as these lesions are relatively benign with indolent course.

  • Microglandular adenosis (MGA) of the breast is widely known as a benign lesion that can mimic invasive carcinoma.
  • Inclusion criteria were glands of MGA expressing S-100 protein and lacking myoepithelial layer (smooth muscle actin negative).
  • Staining indices for the cell cycle markers p53 and Ki-67 were used to compare the 3 tumor categories.
  • Additional staining for other tumor markers [estrogen and progesterone receptors, HER2, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), c-kit, CK5/6, and CK18] were performed.
  • Patient demographics, tumor radiologic features, and clinical follow-up data were collected for all cases.
  • Two out of 6 MGACA cases (34%) developed metastasis and died of disease.
  • Our data showed that Ki-67 and p53 expression, in conjunction with the morphologic features, could be a reliable marker to distinguish MGA from AMGA and MGACA.
  • Although all the MGACA cases were triple negative and express EGFR (basal-like features), all the cases in our study showed a luminal type of differentiation by CK8/18 expression, indicating that MGACA may not fit well into the current proposed molecular classification of breast cancer.

  • RESULTS: Histological findings for <4 mm level revealed that atrophy was present in 48 (65%) and in 2 cases (2.7%) endometrial cancer was found; for > or = 4 mm values polyps and myomas were present in 86 (59%) and there were 11 (7.5%) endometrial cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, endometrial thickness <4 mm can miss malignancies but trans-vaginal ultrasound remains the first line diagnostic procedure in postmenopausal women without AUB, because it is not invasive and has high sensitivity for detecting endometrial cancer and other endometrial disease; according to our experience, outpatient hysteroscopy with biopsy is mandatory in all postmenopausal women with AUB.

  • [Title] [The plasma levels and diagnostic utility of stem cell factor in patients with endometrial cancer and myoma uteri].
  • THE AIM OF THE STUDY: The plasma level and diagnostic utility of SCF have been investigated in endometrial cancer and myoma patients.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: The plasma level of SCF and tumor markers like CA 125 and SCC-Ag in endometrial cancer (50 patients), in myoma uteri (25 patients) and in 25 healthy subjects were determined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and chemiluminescence immunoassay (CMIA).
  • RESULTS: SCF plasma level was significantly higher in endometrial cancer patients comparing to the group with myoma and to the control.
  • The diagnostic sensitivity of SCF was slightly lower than CA 125, and was higher in more advanced tumor stage.
  • Positive and negative predictive values were high for SCF and for CA 125, and were higher in more advanced tumor stage.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that tested cytokine (SCF) can be clinically useful in differentiation of endometrial cancer and myoma uteri.

  • It is not clear whether or not granular cell tumour is a true neoplasm, a developmental anomaly, or a trauma-induced proliferation.
  • The basic cell of origin is now thought to be neural, although past reports frequently indicated an origin from striated muscle, or less frequently an origin from histiocytes, fibroblasts or pericytes.
  • The tumour generally occurs in middle or older aged adults.
  • Histochemical and ultrastructural studies propose the origin of the lesion from Schwann cells, striated muscle, mesenchymal cells, histiocytes and epithelial cells.
  • As most of the granular cell tumours are benign, surgical excision of the lesion is the treatment of choice.

  • [Title] Adenomyomatous hamartoma of lung mimicking benign mucinous tumor in fine needle aspiration biopsy: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Typical cytologic features of pulmonary hamartoma (PH) are usually smears of hyaline cartilage, fibrous tissue, smooth muscle, adipocytic components and respiratory epithelium.
  • Cytologic features of adenomyomatous hamartoma, a special variant of PH, are not documented in the literature and are confused with epithelial neoplasm in the case of sparse stromal cellularity.
  • Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) revealed numerous mucinous epithelial cells presenting predominantly in cohesive cellular sheets that suggested benign mucinous epithelial lesion.
  • The patient underwent surgery for the tumor, and it was histologically proven to be an adenomyomatous hamartoma.

  • Like endometriosis and uterine myomas, adenomyosis presents the typical characteristics of oestrogen-dependent diseases.
  • The medical treatment of adenomyosis is based on the hormonal dependency of the disease and its strongly debated similarities with endometriosis.
  • Although the two diseases have distinct epidemiological features, they have the same 'target tissue' for hormonal therapy, namely ectopic endometrium.
  • Recognized approaches are systemic hormonal treatments, which are generally used for endometriosis and are capable of suppressing the oestrogenic induction of the disease, and local hormonal treatment that targets the ectopic endometrium directly.

  • [Title] A comparison of combined laparoscopic uterine artery ligation and myomectomy versus laparoscopic myomectomy in treatment of symptomatic myoma.
  • PATIENT(S): Of 152 women with symptomatic uterine myomas necessitating surgical intervention who wished to retain their uteri, 65 underwent laparoscopic uterine artery ligation and myomectomy (experimental group) and 87 received laparoscopic myomectomy only (control group).
  • In the experimental group, the recurrence of myoma was 6.2%, and 98.1% of the patients reported symptoms improvement; however, in the control group, these figures were 20.75% and 83.1%, respectively (statistically significant).
  • CONCLUSION(S): This study demonstrated the superiority of laparoscopic uterine artery ligation combined with myomectomy in treatment of symptomatic myomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: A clinico-pathologic study of typical symptoms of intra- and extraoral angiosarcomas and clinical course under therapy is presented as well as an analysis of the immunohistochemical differential diagnosis of the tumour specific formed spaces.
  • For standardized immunohistochemistry following primary antibodies were applied: monoclonal antibodies to pancytoceratin clones AE1/AE3, alpha-smooth-muscle-actin clone 1A4, CD31 clone JC/70A, factor-VIII-related antigen clone F/86, Fli-1 (polyclonal, Zymed, USA), tenascin-C: BC4 (Prof. L.
  • RESULTS: While the benign appearance of the lesions resulted primarily in wrong diagnoses the histopathologic examination of the biopsies revealed the characteristic pattern of angiosarcomas.
  • Wide surgical excision, radiotherapy and/or antiangiogenic chemotherapy could not prevent tumour progression and death within two and a half years after primary diagnosis.
  • The tumour associated structural defect of vascular lamina with partial loss of pericytes/vascular smooth muscle cells was identified immunohistochemically by alpha-smooth-muscle-actin and for the first time by tenascin-C.
  • ) The variable presentation and the benign appearance of oral and perioral angiosarcomas may often delay diagnosis.
  • Factor-VIII-related antigen, CD31 as well as Fli-1 identify angiosarcoma. (3.) alpha-smooth-muscle-actin and the loss of the tenascin-C-matrix indicate immunohistochemically the characteristic sarcomatous defect of differentiation.

  • [Title] Susceptibility of uterine myomas and endometrium to cryosurgery using a carbon dioxide cryosurgical probe in vitro.
  • STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of a 9-mm diameter carbon dioxide cryoprobe, the Endocryo, on myomas and endometrial/myometrial tissue in vitro.
  • DESIGN: Comparative laboratory study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2).
  • PATIENTS: Women with and without myomas, undergoing hysterectomy.
  • INTERVENTION: A single 5-minute freeze followed by an active thaw was applied to uterine myomas and endometrial/myometrial tissue in vitro.
  • MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Endometrial/myometrial and uterine myoma temperature change was measured continuously during the cryosurgical procedure.
  • There was no significant difference in temperature change and depth of cell death between myomas and endometrial/myometrial tissue in vitro.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The Endocryo produces the same cryosurgical effect on both uterine myomas and endometrial/myometrial tissue in vitro, an important principal for future development of a clinically effective cryosurgical device for the treatment of menorrhagia in the presence of submucous myomas.

  • [Title] Laparoscopic myomectomy: enucleation of the myoma by morcellation while it is attached to the uterus.
  • STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility, blood loss, length of surgery, mean hospital stay, and complications of enucleation of a myoma by morcellation while it is still attached to the uterus and to compare the technique with the standard technique of laparoscopic myomectomy.
  • DESIGN: Randomized study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2).
  • PATIENTS: Forty-four patients with symptomatic myomas confirmed by ultrasound examination were included in the study from January 2000 through December 2001 and were randomized into two groups-A and B.
  • The inclusion criteria were the presence of a uterus larger than 12 weeks (on bimanual examination), ultrasound confirmation of the presence of at least one myoma 7 cm or greater in size, and/or presence of three or more myomas greater than 5 cm in size.
  • INTERVENTION: The technique of laparoscopic myomectomy by enucleation of a myoma by morcellation while it is still attached to the uterus was performed in all patients in Group A.
  • The patients in Group B underwent laparoscopic myomectomy by the conventional technique of complete enucleation of the myoma followed by morcellation.
  • MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Forty-nine myomas were removed in group A and 35 in group B.
  • The mean weight of the myomas removed in each patient was 600.5 +/- 369.1 g in group A (95% CI 452.83-748.17 g) and 584.2 +/- 411.1 g in group B (95% CI 404.05-764.45 g) (p = .706).
  • CONCLUSION: Preliminary results suggest that laparoscopic myomectomy employing the technique of enucleation of a myoma by morcellation while it is still attached to the uterus is safe and efficient.
  • It may help to relax the inclusion criteria of patients with myoma for laparoscopic myomectomy based on the size of the myoma.

  • [Title] VX2 carcinoma in rabbits after radiofrequency ablation: comparison of MR contrast agents for help in differentiating benign periablational enhancement from residual tumor.
  • PURPOSE: To prospectively compare the accuracy of a blood pool agent, SH L 643A, with that of gadopentetate dimeglumine in differentiating benign periablational enhancement from residual tumor in VX2 carcinomas in rabbits after radiofrequency (RF) ablation.
  • Sequential MR images were obtained before and with SH L 643A (17 000 Da, 0.05 mmol/kg) and, after a 24-hour interval, gadopentetate dimeglumine (546 Da, 0.1 mmol/kg) in 12 rabbits with VX2 carcinoma in the back muscle prior to (n = 12) and early (n = 12), 1 week (n = 8), and 4 weeks (n = 4) after RF ablation.
  • RF ablation was performed with output of 90 W but at less than 300 seconds to ensure incomplete tumor ablation.
  • The pathologic specimens were sectioned in the same plane as MR imaging, and the enhancement ratios (ie, the ratios of postcontrast to precontrast signal intensity) and the microvessel densities of residual tumor and benign periablational enhancement were assessed.
  • RESULTS: With SH L 643A, the peak enhancement ratios of residual tumor (1.64 +/- 0.31 [standard deviation]) were significantly higher than those of benign periablational enhancement (0.97 +/- 0.16) (P < .001).
  • With gadopentetate dimeglumine, the peak enhancement ratios of residual tumor (1.82 +/- 0.33) were not different from those of benign periablational enhancement (1.71 +/- 0.36).
  • In benign periablational enhancement, enhancement ratios with injection of SH L 643A were lower than those with injection of gadopentetate dimeglumine for all time points up to 30 minutes (P < .05).
  • The microvessel density was 25.72 +/- 5.43 vessels per field of view for residual tumor and 10.37 +/- 2.88 vessels per field of view for benign periablational enhancement (P < .001).
  • CONCLUSION: Blood pool contrast agent SH L 643A permits more accurate differentiation of benign periablational enhancement from residual tumor compared with the extracellular agent gadopentetate dimeglumine.

  • [Title] Further studies on leptin and leptin receptor expression in myometrium and uterine myomas.
  • AIM: Examination of the potential role of leptin in the development of uterine myomas.
  • Expression of the leptin gene and leptin receptor gene was tested in the myometrium of healthy women, and in myomas and the surrounding myometrium of women with benign tumors.
  • METHODS: Using RT-PCR, expression of the leptin gene and leptin receptor gene were studied in myomas and in the surrounding myometrium in 30 women with uterine myomas at various phases of the menstrual cycle, and in the myometrium of ten women in a control group.
  • RESULTS: Using RT-PCR, expression of the leptin gene was demonstrated both in myomas and in the surrounding myometrium.
  • CONCLUSION: Demonstration of the expression of leptin genes and leptin proteins in uterine myomas and in the surrounding myometrium, and their absence in the myometrium of healthy women suggests the involvement of leptin in the development of uterine myomas.

  • Uterine myoma is a common benign tumour in women and most cases do not require treatment.
  • Excessive uterine bleeding is usually due to a submucous myoma or an intramural myoma that is encroaching into the uterine cavity.
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy is highly effective in controlling menorrhagia that is related to submucous myoma.
  • For those with an intramural myoma, abdominal myomectomy results in good bleeding control.

  • There was no correlation between patient age, gravidity, or presenting symptom and the presence of chromosomal abnormality.
  • A significant correlation was found between short culture turnaround time and the occurrence of chromosomal abnormality.
  • Myomas with cross section >4 cm showed an increased incidence of abnormal karyotypes and a statistically significant higher incidence of clonal abnormalities.
  • On the other hand, submucous myomas presented fewer clonal abnormalities than did intramural or subserosal myomas.
  • Clonal chromosomal abnormalities involved 5 different chromosomes (2, 7, 8, 12, 22), which indicate genetic heterogeneity of such benign tumors and the need of molecular cytogenetic studies or molecular studies to characterize possible candidate genes at specific chromosomal breakpoints.

  • Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) is a rare neoplasm that commonly arises in the deep soft tissues of the lower extremities, particularly in the thigh.
  • Although LGFMS has a deceptively benign histologic appearance, local recurrence and late metastases have frequently been reported.
  • Diagnosis of LGFMS is still difficult because of its characteristic bland-looking histologic features that can be confused with other benign or low-grade fibromyxoid lesions.
  • We report a 29-year-old female who presented with a LGFMS located in the soleus muscle of her left lower leg.
  • Preoperative imaging suggested the possibility of an intramuscular histiocytoma of the left soleus muscle.

  • The tumor cells were crowding, lack of an uniform morphology and polarity with intact myoepithelial cells around the ducts.
  • The myoepithelium, positive for p63, smooth muscle actin and Calponin, was well preserved and outlining the ducts.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nipple adenoma is an infrequent type of benign breast neoplasm, presenting as sclerosing papilloma, papillomatosis or florid sclerosing adenosis.
  • A correct diagnosis is based on the peculiar location and morphology of the tumor, and immunohistochemistry is helpful in some cases.

  • Prior to treatment, all myomas showed significant contrast enhancement.
  • After UFE, MRI showed no enhancement of myomas in 30 patients.
  • There was significant improvement of symptoms in the majority of patients, but slightly less improvement in patients with partially remaining vascularization of myomas.
  • CONCLUSION: UFE causes significant volume reduction of myomas and clinical improvement.
  • MRI can reveal remaining vascularization in myomas despite angiographically complete embolization of uterine arteries.
