Inflammatory Markers in Hysterectomies

2019-12-09 00:56:26 | BioPortfolio


This retrospective study was conducted in the obstetrics and gynecology clinic at Derince Training and Research Hospital.

The study group was identified as patients who underwent hysterectomy between 2018 and 2019. Our hospital is a 50-bed tertiary reference center where approximately 3,500 births per year occur, and about 500 gynecological-oncological surgeries are performed annually. The records of patients who underwent LH and AH were reviewed retrospectively. Preoperative and postoperative blood values in the first 24 hours after surgery were compared: hematocrit (HCT), hemoglobin (HB), WBC, PLR, and NLR values were compared as well as the demographic characteristics of the patients who underwent these procedures. In addition, to evaluate the effect of ovaries on the inflammatory markers, the patients were divided into two groups: oophorectomy and non-oophorectomy.

In our clinic, the decision to perform a hysterectomy is made by the weekly gynecology council. The type of surgery is determined according to the clinical condition of the patient, the gynecological examination, and the patient's request. In general, open surgery is preferred in patients with giant fibroids, many previous surgeries, and immobile uteri. Conditions such as dysfunctional uterine bleeding, cervical intraepithelial neoplasms, and uterine descensus indicate the need for LH. In cases where there is no clinical suspicion, oophorectomy is performed according to the patients' wishes.

In benign cases, the preferred type of hysterectomy is type 1 extra facial hysterectomy. In LH, the procedure is performed as follows: The uterine manipulator is inserted vaginally. First, a Veress needle and then a trocar are entered through the umbilicus. The abdomen is insufflated with carbon dioxide, and the appropriate number of ports is placed. Uterine ligaments and vessels are cut by using bipolar energy. The uterus is removed through the vagina, and the vaginal cuff is sutured laparoscopically.

Patients with chronic diseases (e.g., hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and rheumatologic, nephrological, and hematological diseases), the presence of active infection, corticosteroid use, acetylsalicylic acid, and anticoagulant use were not included in the study. Bladder and bowel injuries, blood transfusion requirements, wound infection and hematoma, postoperative respiratory system complications (e.g., atelectasis) were evaluated as surgical complications.

A cystic tumor of the ovary, containing thin, clear, yellow serous fluid and varying amounts of solid tissue, with a malignant potential several times greater than that of mucinous cystadenoma (CYSTADENOMA, MUCINOUS). It can be unilocular, parvilocular, or multilocular. It is often bilateral and papillary. The cysts may vary greatly in size. (Dorland, 27th ed; from Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972)

A malignant cystic or semicystic neoplasm. It often occurs in the ovary and usually bilaterally. The external surface is usually covered with papillary excrescences. Microscopically, the papillary patterns are predominantly epithelial overgrowths with differentiated and undifferentiated papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma cells. Psammoma bodies may be present. The tumor generally adheres to surrounding structures and produces ascites. (From Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p185)
