    This study aimed to determine whether the cervical length increases over a period of six months, after the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) for grade III cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and to identify the factors associated with an increase in the cervical length. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 183 patients who underwent the LEEP between April 2011 and March 2014, at the Department of Gynaecology, Kyosai Hospital. Transvaginal ultrasonography was performed at two, three and six months after the LEEP, and the mean increase in the cervical length between two and three months, two and six months, and three and six months were 2.07, 5.23 and 2.92mm, respectively. The increase in the cervical length was not associated with age, gravidity, parity and the width of CIN. In conclusion, the cervical length may increase gradually over a period of six months after the LEEP.

    Objective: Instrument-assisted vaginal delivery is a significant risk factor for birth canal lacerations. Although many obstetricians recently are recommending restrictive rather than a routine episiotomy, reports have shown restrictive episiotomy to be associated with more extensive anterior birth canal trauma compared with routine episiotomy. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 110 cases of forceps and vacuum deliveries and investigated the site of birth canal lacerations. Birth canal lacerations were divided into four sites according to direction-anterior, ipsilateral, contralateral, and posterior. Results: The frequency of lacerations were, from most to least, posterior (34%), lateral (21.7%), and anterior (1.9%). Moreover, among the lateral lacerations, they were more frequent in the contralateral side of episiotomy than the ipsilateral side (18.9% vs. 4.7%, p < 0.01). Conclusion: Our results indicate that caution is also needed concerning not only the anterior site, but also the contralateral site of an episiotomy to prevent laceration in an instrument-assisted vaginal delivery.

    AimThe aim of this study was to identify predictors of recurrent/residual disease for management after loop electrosurgical excisional procedure. MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed 178 patients with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 and microinvasive squamous cell carcinoma who underwent the loop electrosurgical excisional procedure between April 2011 and March 2014. Endocervical/ectocervical margin status, endocervical curettage (ECC) status, and maximum width of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia were assessed. Patients were followed up for 6-12 months. ResultsPatients with endocervical margin involvement were significantly older and those with ectocervical margin involvement were significantly younger than patients with no margin involvement (P = 0.02 for both comparisons). ECC-positive patients were significantly older than ECC-negative patients (P = 0.049). There was a significant difference in the mean width of the cervical intraepithelial neoplasia between women with ectocervical involvement and those without ecto- or endocervical involvement (10.2 3.1 mm vs 7.3 +/- 3.5 mm, P = 0.0002). The odds ratios for possible recurrent/residual disease for endocervical involvement, ectocervical involvement, and ECC-positivity were 2.1 (0.5-8.4), 3.2 (1.3-7.9), and 6.8 (1.4-32.1), respectively. However, while most ECC-positive patients underwent a second surgery, most patients with ectocervical involvement did not need further treatment. ConclusionOlder age and ECC were significantly associated with endocervical margin involvement; younger age and width of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia were associated with ectocervical margin involvement. Ectocervical margin involvement significantly increased the risk of possible recurrent/residual disease; however, these patients might recover naturally. ECC-positivity significantly increased the risk of recurrent/residual disease.

    Purpose of investigation: To determine if concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) with paclitaxel and carboplatin is effective, convenient, and tolerable for cervical cancer treatment. Materials and Methods: The authors retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 49 patients. Primary outcomes included progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). The Cox proportional hazards model was adjusted for all prognostic factors in the multivariable analysis. Results: Over the median follow-up time of 32 months in a sample consisting of 87.8% (43/49) squamous cell carcinoma and 12.2% (6/49) adenocarcinoma, two-year PFS and OS rates were 67.2% and 80.9%, respectively. hi univariate analyses, stage, histology, performance status, tumor size, and age were significant variables for OS; only histology was significant in the multivariable analysis. Acute toxicity grade 3 or 4 neutropenia (85.7%), diarrhea (32.7%), and late toxicity grade 3 or 4 (12.2%) were detected. Conclusions: For cervical cancer treatment, CCRT with paclitaxel/carboplatin is satisfactory.

    Introduction Muscle contusions usually occur as a result of blunt trauma, which damages the muscle fibers and connective tissue without breaking the skin. Rapid bleeding can cause an increase in pressure that requires surgical intervention, commonly referred to as compartment syndrome. Here, we report a case with delayed diagnosis of single compartment muscle contusion in which compartment syndrome did not develop. Presentation of case A 50-year-old woman underwent radical hysterectomy. She complained of edema and tenderness in the lower left leg on postoperative day 6. The serum creatine phosphokinase level was slightly elevated at 177 IU/L (normal range: 6–142 IU/L). T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed swelling of the muscle in the deep posterior compartment of the lower left leg, edematous fascia, and subcutaneous adipose tissue. She recovered naturally without other complications. Discussion In the lithotomy position during surgery, muscle contusion might occur, without general symptoms. Conclusion Magnetic resonance imaging is useful for diagnosis. For patients who complain of edema and tenderness in the lower leg after surgery in the lithotomy position, muscle contusions should be considered.

    Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, if it occurs in late pregnancy, requires pregnancy termination. Here, we report a woman without a discernable underlying condition who developed neurological deficits at 14 weeks of pregnancy. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an occipitoparietal brain lesion suggestive of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. Neurological symptoms ameliorated spontaneously and she continued her pregnancy to term. A decision to terminate pregnancy based on only neurological and magnetic resonance imaging findings should be avoided.
