STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate hysteroscopic transcervical resection (TCR) for atypical polypoid adenomyoma of the uterus (APA). DESIGN: Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING: Single tertiary hospital. PATIENTS: Women who underwent TCR for APA at Kawasaki Municipal Hospital between 2003 and 2015. INTERVENTIONS: Clinical records were obtained. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Thirty-five APA cases were evaluated. The median age was 35 years (range, 23-43 years), and the median tumor diameter was 22 mm (range, 9-51 mm). The median observation period after first TCR was 34.0 months (range, 4.2-133.7 months). In 19 patients, the tumor recurred after the first TCR. A second TCR was performed in 13 patients, of which 11 patients recurred. A third TCR was performed in 7 patients, of which 5 patients recurred. A fourth TCR was performed in 4 patients, of which 3 patients recurred. The recurrence rate after the second TCR (71.4-84.6%) was higher than that of the first TCR (54.3%) (p < .01; t-test). The median disease-free interval of the first, second, third, and fourth TCR was 12.4, 15.3, 10.5, and 10.9 months, respectively. Seven patients progressed to endometrial cancer; however, there was no mortality. Six of 35 patients conceived; 4 had a normal spontaneous delivery. CONCLUSION: Owing to disease-free intervals that follow treatment, TCR is a promising treatment modality as a fertility-preserving option for patients with APA under careful observation. Twenty percent of patients with APA develop cancer; however, the current study showed no mortality.

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Delays in receiving obstetric care during labor contribute to high rates of maternal morbidity in sub-Saharan Africa. This exploratory study was conducted to identify important delays experienced during the development and subsequent repair of obstetric fistula in northern Tanzania. METHODS: Sixty women presenting to a tertiary hospital with obstetric fistula completed structured surveys about the birth experience that led to fistula development and their experiences seeking surgical repair. A subset of 30 provided qualitative accounts. Clinical data were collected postsurgery. Data were analyzed according to a four-delay model, with iterative analysis allowing for triangulation of all sources. RESULTS: During the index pregnancy, women labored for a median of 48 h. Most women (53/60; 88.3%) delivered in a facility but labored for a median of 12.4 h before deciding to seek care (Delay 1). Women spent a median of 1.25 h traveling to a facility (Delay 2). After presenting to care, 15/51 (29.4%) waited at least an hour to see a medical provider, and 35/53 (66.0%) required transfer to another facility (Delay 3). Women lived with fistula for a median of 10 years (Delay 4). Qualitative data provided context and a deeper understanding of the factors contributing to each delay. CONCLUSIONS: Critical delays exist both outside and within the healthcare system that contribute to the development and timely repair of obstetric fistula. Healthcare system strengthening, particularly with regard to emergency obstetric care, is critical to reduce the burden of obstetric fistula in women in Tanzania.
