Objective To compare patient characteristics, imaging results, surgical management and prognosis of borderline ovarian tumors (BOT) between pre and postmenopausal patients. Materials and methods A retrospective cohort of all cases of histologically verified BOT between 1990–2018, comparing presentation, imaging, surgical procedures and recurrence. Patients were included in the postmenopausal group if they reported 12 months of amenorrhea with or without menopausal symptoms. Results During this 28 year study period, 66 operations were performed in which BOT was confirmed. Postmenopausal patients were 37–89 years old and premenopausal patients 18–50 years old, with an average age of 63.9 ± 13.4 and 36.2 ± 8.4 years, respectively ( p  < 0.001). The majority of patients in both groups were diagnosed due to abdominal pain, followed by incidental diagnosis on routine ultrasound. Imaging and CA-125 levels upon presentation were similar. Almost sixty percent of postmenopausal and 26.3% of premenopausal patients underwent laparotomy ( p  = 0.01), while those who underwent laparoscopy were 35.7% and 60.5%, respectively ( p  = 0.03). Most postmenopausal patients underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO), whereas premenopausal surgeries involved cystectomy. Nearly all study patients were diagnosed in stage one. Malignant transformation occurred in 7.1% of postmenopausal patients. No malignant transformation was found in premenopausal patients. Conclusion BOT's present similarly in pre and postmenopausal patients. Postmenopausal patients undergo more extensive surgery, and are diagnosed in early stage disease. Despite a tendency for a more conservative approach in premenopausal patients, prognosis is similar in both groups.


目的比较绝经前后卵巢交界性肿瘤 (BOT) 的临床特点、影像学检查结果、手术方法及预后。材料和方法 1990-2018 之间所有经组织学证实的 BOT 病例的回顾性队列,比较表现、影像学、手术过程和复发。如果患者报告有或无绝经症状的闭经 12 个月,则将其纳入绝经后组。结果在 28 年的研究期间,共进行了 66 次手术,证实了 BOT。绝经后患者 37-89 岁,绝经前患者 18-50 岁,平均年龄 63.9 ± 13.4 岁,36.2 ± 8.4 岁,分别 (p <0.001)。两组患者均因腹痛确诊,其次为常规超声诊断。表现时的影像学和 CA-125 水平相似。近 60% 的绝经后患者和 26.3% 的绝经前患者接受开腹手术 (p = 0.01),而接受腹腔镜手术的患者分别为 35.7% 和 60.5% (p = 0.03)。大多数绝经后患者行双侧输卵管卵巢切除术 (BSO),而绝经前手术涉及膀胱切除术。几乎所有的研究患者在第一阶段被诊断。7.1% 的绝经后患者发生恶变。绝经前患者未见恶变。结论 BOT 在绝经前后患者中表现相似。绝经后患者接受更广泛的手术,并在疾病早期诊断。尽管绝经前患者倾向于保守治疗,但两组预后相似。

METHODS:STUDY OBJECTIVE:To evaluate the differences in perioperative outcomes and immediate complication rates between laparoscopic myomectomy for submucous myomas and laparoscopic myomectomy for myomas in other locations. DESIGN:Retrospective cohort study. SETTING:University-affiliated hospital in London. PATIENTS:A total of 350 patients with symptomatic uterine myomas underwent laparoscopic myomectomy. Thirty-three of these were performed for submucous myomas (group 1), and 317 were for myomas in other uterine locations (group 2). INTERVENTIONS:Analysis of prospectively collected data on patient demographics, myoma characteristics, perioperative outcomes, and immediate complications. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS:Patient demographics, including age, body mass index, and parity, were similar in the 2 groups. No significant differences in myoma characteristics were seen between groups 1 and 2, including the mean dimension of largest myoma (7.1 vs 7.8 cm, respectively; p = .35), mean number of myomas removed (3.8 vs 4.1; p = .665), and mean mass of myomas removed (142.0 g vs 227.3 g; p = .186). There were also no significant between-group differences in any perioperative outcomes, including mean blood loss (226.8 mL vs 266.4 mL; p = .373), duration of surgery (103 minutes vs 113 minutes; p = .264), and duration of hospital stay (1.4 days vs 1.7 days; p = .057). No complications arose from laparoscopic resection of submucous myomas. CONCLUSION:Laparoscopic myomectomy for submucous myomas has similar perioperative outcomes and immediate complications as laparoscopic myomectomy for other myomas and can be considered for large or type 2 submucous myomas.

METHODS:INTRODUCTION:Laparoscopic myomectomy can be difficult when fibroids are large and numerous. This may result in extensive intraoperative bleeding and the need for a conversion to a laparotomy. Medical pretreatment prior to surgery might reduce these risks by decreasing fibroid size and vascularization of the fibroid. We compared pretreatment with ulipristal acetate (UPA) vs gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRHa) prior to laparoscopic myomectomy on several intra- and postoperative outcomes. MATERIAL AND METHODS:We performed a non-inferiority double-blind randomized controlled trial in nine hospitals in the Netherlands. Women were randomized between daily oral UPA for 12 weeks and single placebo injection or single intramuscular injection with leuprolide acetate and daily placebo tablets for 12 weeks. The primary outcome was intraoperative blood loss. Secondary outcomes were reduction of fibroid volume, suturing time, total surgery time and surgical ease. RESULTS:Thirty women received UPA and 25 women leuprolide acetate. Non-inferiority of UPA regarding intraoperative blood loss was not demonstrated. When pretreated with UPA, median intraoperative blood loss was statistically significantly higher (525 mL [348-1025] vs 280 mL[100-500]; P = 0.011) and suturing time of the first fibroid was statistically significantly longer (40 minutes [28-48] vs 22 minutes [14-33]; P = 0.003) compared with GnRHa. Pretreatment with UPA showed smaller reduction in fibroid volume preoperatively compared with GnRHa (-7.2% [-35.5 to 54.1] vs -38.4% [-71.5 to -19.3]; P = 0.001). Laparoscopic myomectomies in women pretreated with UPA were subjectively judged more difficult than in women pretreated with GnRHa. CONCLUSIONS:Non-inferiority of UPA in terms of intraoperative blood loss could not be established, possibly due to the preliminary termination of the study. Pretreatment with GnRHa was more favorable than UPA in terms of fibroid volume reduction, intraoperative blood loss, hemoglobin drop directly postoperatively, suturing time of the first fibroid and several subjective surgical ease parameters.

METHODS:AIMS:Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC) syndrome is caused by germline mutations in the Fumarate hydratase (FH) gene. In young women, the syndrome often presents with symptomatic uterine leiomyomas, leading to myomectomy or hysterectomy. In this study, we aimed to investigate the incidence and mutational profiles of FH-negative leiomyomas from young patients, thus allowing for early identification and triage of syndromic patients for surveillance. METHODS AND RESULTS:We evaluated 153 cases of uterine leiomyomas from women aged up to 30 years for loss of FH expression by tissue microarray (TMA)-based immunohistochemical staining. Mutational analysis of tumours with loss of FH was carried out by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of 10 exons within the FH gene and subsequent Sanger sequencing. The status of promoter methylation was assessed by bisulphite sequencing. Loss of FH protein expression was detected in seven (4.6%) of 153 tested uterine leiomyomas from young patients. All FH-negative leiomyomas displayed staghorn vasculature and fibrillary/neurophil-like cytoplasm. We found that six (86%) of seven FH-negative tumours detected by immunohistochemistry harboured FH mutations, 50% of which contained germline mutations. In particular, the germline mutational rate in FH gene was 2.0% (three of 153 cases). Bisulphite sequencing analysis failed to detect promoter methylation in any of the seven tumours. CONCLUSION:Our study showed a relatively high rate of FH germline mutation in FH-negative uterine leiomyomas from patients aged up to 30 years. While genetic mutations confer protein expression loss, epigenetic regulation of the FH gene appears to be unrelated to this phenotype.
