Some Common facts in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Endometrial biopsies are useful for assessing endometrial diseases . Leiomyoma is considered as the most common uterine tumor in women older than 30 years. This tumor extends different types of degenerations and a large variability in MRI imaging patterns. MR Spectroscopy can distinguish between benign and malignant lesions . Endometriosis is one of the complex gynecological diseases which are defined by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity . It affects mainly reproductive aged women. The three clinical presentations of the disease may occur alone or coexist: peritoneal endometriosis, ovarian endometrioma, and Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis (DIE). In which DIE is the most aggressive presentation of endometriosis, which penetrates more than 5 mm in affected tissues.
In studies it is found that the genital infection frequency is mainly due to improper genital hygiene practices. 3-dimensional ultrasound is used for the diagnosis of LPSVC. Fetal Renal Pelvic Dilatation is treated with Double Pig Tail Catheter.
