Several studies have suggested that endometriosis is associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer, especially for clear-cell and endometrioid subtypes. However previous studies lack sufficient power or diagnostic certainty.

Applying acetic acid (AA) to the cervix followed by colposcopic assessment with or without colposcopically directed biopsy is the standard test used to detect dysplastic lesions of the cervix. However, there is no evidence-based common standard defining how to exactly perform this test.

As gestational surrogacy (a process by which intended parents contract with a woman to carry a fetus that the intended parents will raise) increases across the United States (US), it is imperative that obstetrician/gynecologists understand the unique nuances of caring for patients who are gestational surrogates. Gestational surrogacy offers a route to parenthood for individuals and families who may otherwise have limited options. Understanding surrogacy requires multiple ethical considerations about the potential medical and psychosocial effects on gestational surrogates as well as the families built through surrogacy.

There is increasing adoption of opportunistic salpingectomy for ovarian cancer prevention at the time of gynecologic surgery, including the postpartum period. However, there is no consensus on an ideal surgical approach for the parturient vasculature. We describe a safe, low-cost and accessible approach for bilateral salpingectomy during cesarean section that we call the “Mesosalpinx Isolation Salpingectomy Technique” (MIST) which can guide institutions to standardize their postpartum salpingectomy procedures when advanced vessel-sealing devices are not available.

While uterus transplantation was once considered only a theoretical possibility for patients with uterine factor infertility, researchers have now developed methods of transplantation that have led to successful pregnancies with multiple children born to date. Because of the unique and significant nature of this type of research, it has been undertaken with collaboration not only with scientists and physicians but also with bioethicists, who paved the initial path for research of uterus transplantation to take place.
