Highlights in Obstetrics & Gynecology

Endometrial and ovarian cancer risk increased in PCOS

Based on a meta-analysis reported in Human Reproduction Update, women with polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS] (n=919; 11 studies) < 54 years of age, are at increased risk for endometrial (HR = 4.05) and ovarian cancer (HR = 2.52), but not breast cancer (HR = 0.78).

Apelin levels correlate with insulin sensitivity and lipid profile in PCOS

As reported in Seizure: European Journal of Epilepsy, patients with epilepsy (n=3182) have a 3-fold increased risk for cerebral stroke. The risk was highest in the 20-39 year age group and those taking high doses of anti-epileptic medications.

Pre-operative tranexamic acid reduces blood loss in ovarian cancer patients

As reported in ACTA Obstetricaet Gynecologica, a single pre-operative dose of tranexamic acid (15 mg/kg) significantly reduced blood loss (520 cc vs 730 cc) and the transfusion rate (30% vs. 44%) in ovarian cancer patients (n=100) undergoing radical debulking.
