Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy versus Vaginal Hysterectomy at the University Hospital of the West Indies: A 5-year Retrospective Study

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.275
Pages: 
865–9
Synopsis: 
There were no significant differences between the total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and vaginal hysterectomy (VH) groups in terms of intraoperative and postoperative complications. However, TLH was associated with significantly longer operative time and a trend toward a shorter hospital stay than VH.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare the outcomes of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH), a relatively new procedure, with vaginal hysterectomy (VH), a well-established procedure, in a university teaching hospital.

Anticardiolipin Antibodies and Lupus Anticoagulants among Women Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.224
Pages: 
789–94
Synopsis: 
Approximately 8% of the infertile women seeking in vitro fertilization in Jamaica were anticardiolipin antibody and/or lupus anticoagulant positive. The presence of these antibodies did not affect the fertilization rate, pregnancy rate, nor did it demonstrate an increased risk for cycle cancellation or the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  The aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) and lupus anticoagulant (LA) on the outcome of the in vitro ferlitization (IVF) cycles and to determine the prevalence of these antibodies in infertile women seeking IVF in Jamaica.
