Summary of "Carboplatin Use in Pregnancy for Stage IB3 Cervical Cancer: Case Report and Review of the Literature."

Locally advanced stage cervical cancer diagnosed during pregnancy is a clinical challenge and requires skill in balancing maternal management, fetal care, and oncological treatment. Cisplatin has been routinely used as a first line agent for neoadjuvant chemotherapy in this situation, even though it has also recently been associated with fetal hearing loss. We report a case of stage IB3 cervical cancer diagnosed at 17 gestational weeks successfully treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy using carboplatin and paclitaxel during pregnancy. Carboplatin is a valid alternative to cisplatin for advanced stage cervical carcinoma in a pregnant patient, in particular in view of the neonatal complications (primarily ototoxicity) that are associated with cisplatin exposure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.

An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.

A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
