Editorial: Is Endocervical Crypt Involvement by CIN A Newly Identified Risk Factor for Disease Recurrence Following Cervical Treatment?

Dimitrios Papoutsis*

There is evidence suggesting that endocervical crypt involvement by cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is a risk factor for disease recurrence following excisional and ablative cervical treatment. Even though the rates of crypt involvement by CIN in cervical tissue vary greatly between 15-58%, it has been demonstrated that the presence of this risk factor increases almost two-fold the risk of recurrence following treatment.

Research Article: Neoplasms Power Morcellation - An Emerging Risk Complicating Minimally Invasive Surgery of Uterine Mesenchymal

Hsuan Chin*, Ada Ng, Bernard SM Chern

Objective: To determine the local incidence and clinical consequences of myoma following intraperitoneal dissemination via morcellation.

Materials and Method: An electronic search for laparoscopic myomectomies from the computer data base of a tertiary hospital and a separate search for sarcoma or myomata with atypical features on National Cancer Registry were carried out for the 10-year study period. The identified cases have their medical records traced, their data extracted and studied in details.

Results: The incidence of unexpected diagnosis i.e. variants, atypia and malignancy is 0.23% and the incidence of unexpected sarcoma is 0.10%. One of the four cases who underwent subsequent laparotomy was found to have peritoneal dissemination. She is also unfortunately the only mortality in this study.

Conclusion: Although laparoscopic surgeries have proven benefits over the open surgeries, dissemination of unexpected malignancy and extra-uterine seeding are major concerns currently. At the moment, maybe morcellation in the endobag or cutting the specimen using knife or scissors may be considered as alternative surgical techniques.
