To our knowledge, this is the first case report describing a cardiac-extending IV leiomyomatosis successfully extracted from the gonadal vein without sternotomy.

Mesial side ovarian incision for laparoscopic dermoid cystectomy A safe and ovarian tissue preserving technique
Considering the greater ovarian cortical thickness at the mesial side, this incision could provide better identification of the cleavage plane, reducing cyst rupture risk and also sparing ovarian residual function.
Prevalence and risk factors of diabetes in patients with Klinefelter syndrome A longitudinal observational study
The high prevalence of diabetes in Klinefelter patients is possibly due to abnormal karyotypes. Other risk factors, such as low T and high triglyceride, may also contribute to the development of diabetes.
Serum levels of antimüllerian hormone in early maturing girls before, during, and after suppression with GnRH agonist
Circulating AMH declined significantly after gonadal suppression with long-acting GnRH agonist, and AMH recovered to pretreatment levels after discontinuation of GnRH agonist. This is an indication of partial gonadotropin-dependence of AMH.
Opposing effects of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate and free testosterone on metabolic phenotype in women with polycystic ovary syndrome
In studying the association of adrenal and ovarian androgens with metabolic parameters in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, distinguishing between adrenal and ovarian hyperandrogenism is important to evaluate metabolic risk.
Peritubular cells may modulate Leydig cell mediated testosterone production through a nonclassic pathway
Peritubular cell secreted factor(s) may modulate T production by Leydig cells in a nonclassic mode, independent of StAR gene expression even in a gonadotropin-deficient environment.
Gonadotropin releasing hormone GnRH agonist leuprolide acetate and GnRH antagonist cetrorelix acetate directly inhibit leiomyoma extracellular matrix production
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues leuprolide acetate and cetrorelix acetate directly regulate extracellular matrix components COL1A1, fibronectin, and versican in human uterine leiomyoma cells relative to patient-matched myometrial cells.
Two vitrification protocols were shown to preserve the morphology and viability of human preantral follicles. After warming and xenografting to nude mice for 1 week, these follicles were able to survive and develop.
Temporal window in which exposure to estradiol permanently modifies ovarian function causing polycystic ovary morphology in rat
We describe the existence of a specific postnatal window of vulnerability during which estradiol valerate exposure irreversibly programs changes in the follicular development, ovulation, and cyclic estrual activity of rats.
The IVF facilities providing PGD services expose themselves to liability for misdiagnosis. Conducting the procedure in a competent manner and providing proper informed consent may deter litigation.
General population study of spontaneous fertility after ectopic pregnancy, according to the treatment. Conservative strategy should be favored, especially for patients with risk factors of infertility.
Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone agonist may minimize premature ovarian failure in young women undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist cotreatment in conjunction with conditioning chemotherapy before stem cell transplantation may significantly decrease gonadotoxicity and premature ovarian failure in lymphoma but not in leukemia patients.
Tumor necrosis factor alpha promoter polymorphisms are associated with idiopathic primary ovarian insufficiency in Korean women
Tumor necrosis factor-a gene mutations may be responsible for the genetic susceptibility of Korean women to idiopathic primary ovarian insufficiency.
Contribution of the rate of change of antimullerian hormone in estimating time to menopause for late reproductive age women
The rate of change of AMH is an independent predictor of TTM in late reproductive-age women and increased precision of estimates of TTM when included with baseline AMH levels and age.
Hypoestrogenic inactive phases at the start of the menstrual cycle Changes with age and reproductive stage and relationship to follicular depletion.
Hypoestrogenic intervals at the beginning of the menstrual cycle in a population-based sample decrease and then increase in length with age, potentially reflecting both follicular depletion and hyperstimulation.
Acrocentric bivalents positioned preferentially nearby to the XY pair in metaphase I human spermatocytes
Proximity frequencies of autosomic bivalents to the XY pair in metaphase I human spermatocytes were evaluated, showing a nonrandom bivalent distribution and a relative position pattern notably preserved from pachytene to metaphase I.
Blastocyst PGD of mutation load and gender was applied for the first time. Results demonstrate that the trophectoderm is predictive of inner cell mass and newborn mutation loads and that simultaneous gender selection can be used to reduce the transgenerational risk of inheritance.
Safety of uterine and or ovarian preservation in young women with grade 1 intramucous endometrial adenocarcinoma A comparison of survival according to the extent of surgery
Analyzing 489 patients who were 40 years of age or younger with grade 1 intramucous endometrial adenocarcinoma, uterine and ovarian preservation was not associated with an increase in cancer-related mortality.
Interleukin 17A is present in neutrophils in endometrioma and stimulates the secretion of growth related oncogene α Gro α from endometrioma stromal cells
Interleukin (IL)-17A was present in neutrophils in endometrioma and it increased Gro-a secretion from endometrioma stromal cells, which induced neutrophil migration. IL-17A in neutrophils may contribute to the development of endometriosis.
