For unusual ectopic pregnancy and gestational trophoblastic disease
In contrast to the traditional hook effect, which is now observed rarely at extremely high hCG concentrations associated with gestational trophoblastic disease
, the variant hook effect has been shown to cause false-negative results in qualitative POC hCG devices due to the presence of hCG variants at concentrations regularly observed during healthy pregnancy (7).
ACOG Practice Bulletin #53: diagnosis and treatment of gestational trophoblastic disease
Persistent gestational trophoblastic disease
is normally treated with single agent chemotherapy with methotrexate.
We combined our separate outcomes of spontaneous abortions (13 percent), ectopic pregnancies (1 percent), trophoblastic disease
Hydatidiform mole is a part of generic term, Gestational Trophoblastic Disease
Likewise, in ovarian hyperstimulation, whether due to drug stimulation for infertility or gestational trophoblastic disease
, bilateral enlarged ovaries have multiple cysts called theco-luteal cysts.
We also were able to detect low residual hCG concentrations in patients with gestational trophoblastic disease
, who had previously been determined to be cured with the aid of conventional hCG bioassays of 24-h urine concentrations.
They also discuss new developments in gestational trophoblastic disease
and Lynch syndrome.
Salpingostomy is associated with persistent trophoblastic disease
in 5%-20% of cases, however, without prophylactic methotrexate.
Among the conditions are vulvar neoplasia, benign endometrium, pathology of the fallopian tube and broad ligament, sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary, disease of the peritoneum, and gestational trophoblastic disease
The organization is comprised primarily of gynecologic oncologists as well as medical oncologists, radiation therapists, pathologists and basic scientists all of whom have a primary professional commitment to the treatment of women with gynecological malignancies including those of the ovaries, endometrium, uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva and trophoblastic disease
