The age of pregnancy is rising worldwide while breast cancer is seen more frequently in young ages. These have resulted in an increasing number of breast cancer patients who have not still completed their childbearing plans. The question of pregnancy has always been alarming for the patients and their doctors because of hormonal increases during the process, and breast cancer survivors are still being advised against pregnancy by their treating physician. Studies have investigated the subject from years ago; almost no one has shown any negative impact of pregnancy on the disease prognosis, and even survival benefits have been shown.
MiniArc® Sling for the Treatment of Female Stress Urinary Incontinence
Treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has been revolutionized over the years and many corrective procedures have been described showing varying degrees of success. A recent development in this direction has been the introduction of MiniArc® sling which avoid blind needle passage in the retropubic space and the groin. Despite of its surgical principle, MiniArc® did not avoid the known complications associated with other mid-urethral slings (MUS). In addition, the data regarding MiniArc® effectiveness was insufficient and conflicting. We recommend the use of MiniArc® sling in the setting of clinical trials till it proves its safety and longterm efficacy relative to MUS.
Examination under Anesthesia: An Invaluable Tool for Localizing Retroperitoneal Tumors
Pelvic examination under anesthesia (EUA) is an outmoded diagnostic method that helps localize and evaluate deep pelvic organs and structures. We report a rare case that confirms the eternal value of this investigative tool.
Association of Antisperm Antibodies with Bacterial Infection: An Insight to Infertility
Among other factors, immunological predictors associated with humoral immunity against sperm antigens can be a reason for human infertility. A hypothesis for the induction of antisperm antibodies (ASA) is the cross-reactivity of spermatozoa antigens and exogenous antigens. Common antigenicity has been established between spermatozoa and bacteria, viruses, fungi and allergens. Recent evidence suggests that many antigens shared among unrelated cell types are surface membrane or lipid conjugate complex carbohydrates.
