Viewers should focus their eyes on the area closest to the probe, the vagina. The hypoechoic area that is immediately abutting the probe is consistent in thickness and echogenicity throughout the sweep from right to left. There is other deep endometriosis in this clip (bowel and uterosacral ligament) and an ovarian endometrioma.
In transverse, this clip shows the right and left ovary both contain an endometrioma and the ovaries are fixed to each other medially, known as “kissing ovaries.” They are densely adherent to an area that also contains bowel deep endometriosis.
Allowing your eyes to follow the external contours of the ovary, it is possible to appreciate the ovary is mobile laterally and inferomedially.
The left side of the ovary (when watching the video) is noted to be densely fixed to an area of deep endometriosis within the uterosacral ligament that is in close proximity the uterus.
The right side of the ovary (when watching the video) is noted to slide smoothly over the pelvic sidewall laterally, suggesting that it is mobile in this dimension.
Six single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPS) may be strongly associated with endometrial cancer risk, according to a new analysis of the latest evidence on genetics of the disease.
CDC guidelines to keep your practice safe.
New findings from the Journal of the American Heart Association indicate that domestic abuse (DA) against women can increase mortality from all causes by 40% when compared to rates in the general population.
New research from BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health indicates that a high number of lifetime sexual partners may be associated with adverse health outcomes.
Women who have poor sleep quality are also eating more food and have lower-quality diets – all of which are factors that increase cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk.
