We report molecular genetic analysis of 42 affected individuals referred with a diagnosis of aniridia who previously screened as negative for intragenic PAX6 mutations. Of these 42, the diagnoses were 31 individuals with aniridia and 11 individuals referred with a diagnosis of Gillespie syndrome (iris hypoplasia, ataxia and mild to moderate developmental delay). Array-based comparative genomic hybridization identified six whole gene deletions: four encompassing PAX6 and two encompassing FOXC1. Six deletions with plausible cis-regulatory effects were identified: five that were 3 (telomeric) to PAX6 and one within a gene desert 5 (telomeric) to PITX2. Sequence analysis of the FOXC1 and PITX2 coding regions identified two plausibly pathogenic de novo FOXC1 missense mutations (p.Pro79Thr and p.Leu101Pro). No intragenic mutations were detected in PITX2. FISH mapping in an individual with Gillespie-like syndrome with an apparently balanced X;11 reciprocal translocation revealed disruption of a gene at each breakpoint: ARHGAP6 on the X chromosome and PHF21A on chromosome 11. In the other individuals with Gillespie syndrome no mutations were identified in either of these genes, or in HCCS which lies close to the Xp breakpoint. Disruption of PHF21A has previously been implicated in the causation of intellectual disability (but not aniridia). Plausibly causative mutations were identified in 15 out of 42 individuals (12/32 aniridia; 3/11 Gillespie syndrome). Fourteen of these mutations presented in the known aniridia genes; PAX6, FOXC1 and PITX2. The large number of individuals in the cohort with no mutation identified suggests greater locus heterogeneity may exist in both isolated and syndromic aniridia than was previously appreciated.

Endometriosis is a complex disease of young women in reproductive age. It's responsible for dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Medical and surgical treatments have different aims. Hormonal suppression tends to stop natural evolution of the disease and surgery enables macroscopic excisions of endometriotic implants. Outcomes depend on the stage and the preoperative symptoms. This article summarizes a review of surgical management of endometriosis describing surgical indications, techniques, and outcomes in terms of pain and fertility.

Cecal endometriosis and ileocolic intussusception due to a cecal endometriosis is extremely rare. We report a case of a woman who presented an ileocecal intussusception due to a cecal endometriosis. The patient gave two months history of chronic periombilical pain requiring regular hospital admission and analgesia. The symptoms were not related to menses. A laparotomy was performed and revealed an ileocolic intussusception. The abdominal exploration did not find any endometriosis lesion. Ileocaecal resection was performed. Microscopic examination showed a cystic component, lined by a regular cylindric epithelium. Foci of endometrial tissu were oberved in the cecal subserosa and muscularis mucosal, with irregular endometrial glands lined by cylindric epithelium without atypia immunostained with CK7, and characteristic endometrial stroma immunostained with CD10. Cecal endometriosis and ileocolic intussusception due to a cecal endometriosis is extremely rare. Diagnose of etiology remains challenging due to the absence of clinical and radiological specific characteristics.The virtual slide(s) for this article can be found here: http://www.diagnosticpathology.diagnomx.eu/vs/2975867306869166. © 2012 Rivkine et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Objective: To evaluate complications of transient ovariopexy performed to reduce adhesions in patients with severe endometriosis. Methods: A bicentric retrospective study involved 193 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery for severe endometriosis at 2 French university hospitals from 1997 to 2009. At the end of surgery, unilateral or bilateral transient ovariopexy was performed on 297 ovaries. Immediate (e.g. reproducibility, tolerance, and hospital stay) and long-term (evaluated via vaginal access to the ovaries, ovarian function, and ovarian vascularization) complications were assessed. Results: The technique, which was easy and reproducible, did not increase hospital stay and was well tolerated. There were 2 (0.7%) immediate complications. There was no difference in ovarian accessibility before and after surgery (177/183 [96.7%] vs 176/183 [96.1%]). Potential vaginal oocyte retrieval for in vitro fertilization was possible for all patients. The antral follicle count and the pulsatility index of suspended ovaries were not different from those of contralateral unsuspended ovaries. Endometrioma excision did not modify these results. Conclusion: The short- and long-term safety results of transient ovariopexy for adnexal adhesions in patients with severe endometriosis were encouraging. © 2012 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics.

Hepatic endometriosis has an extremely rare occurrence characterized by the presence of ectopic endometrium in the liver. A diagnosis of hepatic endometriosis is established after surgery. A 51-year-old multiparous female was referred to our unit for investigation of a liver tumor. The patient reported a 6-month history of epigastric pain and vomiting. She had undergone conservative hysterectomy for uterine leiomyomas several years earlier. The results of liver function tests and the levels of tumor markers (CA 19.9, CEA, CA125, αFP) were normal. Radiological imaging (USS, CT and MRI) suggested the presence of liver cystadenoma, liver cystadenocarcinoma or cystic metastasis of the liver in the left liver lobe extending to the diaphragm with left hepatic vein compression. Laparotomy was performed. The intraoperative frozen sections suggested a diagnosis of endometriosis. Anatomical resection was performed, including left lobectomy with diaphragm resection. The final histology confirmed the presence of hepatic endometrioma without malignant transformation. Fourteen cases of hepatic endometrioma have been described in the medical literature. We herein report the 15th case. Making a preoperative diagnosis of hepatic endometriosis is very difficult, despite conducting a complete investigation, in the absence of clinical and radiological characteristics. The diagnosis is made according to a histological examination of the whole surgical sample. © 2012 Springer Japan.

To describe heart rate (HR) variations in surgical residents during laparoscopy and to assess their intraoperative stress.We performed a prospective, multicentric, observational, blinded, and comparative analysis of the HR in 75 obstetrics and gynecology residents during planned laparoscopy for infertility in five teaching hospitals with assisted reproductive technology centers. The surgical residents had neither heart disease nor were under medical treatment or using tobacco or drugs. We describe HR variations at 9 preselected operative steps using real-time noninvasive measures of the HR during laparoscopy.Residents performed 124 laparoscopies for unexplained infertility. Their HR increased significantly during the introduction of the Palmer needle, umbilical port and second port, and during abdominopelvic exploration and dye test compared to the baseline HR, the HR after hand washing, at the end of surgery and during skin suture (91.6 1.9, 104.8 2.3, 95.3 2.2, 93.7 2.5, 90.7 1.7 vs. 83.2 1.6, 88.6 1.9, 87.4 2.1, 88.2 1.9 bpm, respectively, p < 0.02).Our results point to a potential stress for the surgeon assessed by HR variations during planned laparoscopy compared to the baseline HR before surgery. This static stress can be repeated on the same day.

To investigate the effect of using fetal scalp blood sampling on the risk of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS) with meconium-stained amniotic fluid (MSAF).Prospective data collection with regard to MSAF during labor for low-risk term cephalic singleton live birth from 2012 to 2014. Maternal, obstetric and neonatal data were compared according to the occurrence of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS group) or not (no RDS group).Of 515 newborns born through MSAF, 46 experienced RDS and from them 10 experienced meconium aspiration syndrome. No difference was observed according to maternal characteristic, abnormal fetal heart rate tracing pattern irrespective of its category and cesarean rate. Apgar at oneminute was lower in the group RDS (7.6 versus 8.5, p<0.05). The mean umbilical artery pH values did not differ between the two groups. Significant difference between newborns with and without RDS in terms of fetal scalp lactate sampling during the labor (71.1% versus 55.1%, p<0.05), and neonatal care unit (NCU) admissions (22.8% versus 10.8%, p<0.05). Secondary rather than primary meconium was associated with RDS when performing fetal scalp blood assessment (p<0.05). A significant correlation between RDS, fetal scalp blood assessment and MSAF diagnosed during the first stage of labor (after spontaneous rupture of membranes or at amniotomy) was found.In case of MSAF, fetal scalp blood sampling did not reduce the risk of RDS.
