40 yoa female. 10-14 mm thickened uterus. Balloon abalation in 2002. Uterus filled with scar tissue, unable to get biopsy. Pt wants to avoid hyster.?

Not enough info: I'm assuming there is concern regarding the thickened uterus but we don't know enough about things like risk factors. This is too complicated for a 400 character answer. She needs a tissue diagnosis one way or another. See a good gynecologist and don't waste time on a site like this. ...Read more

Nevi laser ablation & subsequent biopsy of nevi if not removed completely cause pathology incorrectly appear atypical due to ablation.Is this logical?

Nevi laser ablation & subsequent biopsy of nevi if not removed completely cause pathology incorrectly appear atypical due to ablation.Is this logical?

Forgive my frankness: For some reason, you are doubting the diagnosis of an atypical nevus because it had been lasered previously. As a pathologist, I would never make that mistake -- t would be a howler. Previous lasering won't produce the distinctive atypical nevus changes. Get two other pathologists to sign the nevus out with your full history -- two opinions are good on any questionable pigmented lesion. ...Read more

Could laser ablation of the cervix cause toxic shock syndrome?  Would a sunburn like rash on the hips be indicative of tss?

Possible?: It's theoretically possible but i haven't heard of any such cases and wasn't able to find any case reports. A flat rash on some part of the body can be seen with tss but it's not common. If you're not feeling well and suspect you may have tss, it's best to go to an emergency room immediately. ...Read more

Hi,I would like to know why laser ablation has similar seizurefreedom to standard surgery.what's are the rates of both operations.I have epilepsy.

Variable outcomes: Epilepsy surgery in general works best with a focal lesion, especially involving temporal lobe area. When you mention laser, you describe a surgical technique which is used in conjunction with other tools, and efficacy outcomes are typically similar, but since cases vary, approach may be different based on patient's lesion character. ...Read more
