ABSTRACT Ginekološka laparoskopija operativna je metoda koja omogućuje izvođenje zahvata uz minimalno invazivni pristup, a s jednakim rezultatima kao i u klasičnoj kirurgiji. U članku je dan kratak povijesni razvoj ginekološke endoskopije, a zatim ukratko opisane ginekološke operacije koje se izvode laparoskopski. Glavni nedostaci aparoskopije su dugotrajna edukacija i skupoća opreme. Međutim, pritisak informiranih bolesnica, te očigledne prednosti minimalno invazivne kirurgije primorati će ginekologe, posebno mlade, na dodatnu edukaciju u endoskopiji. Osim prednosti za bolesnika (manje komplikacija, manje analgetika, brži oporavak, bolji kozmetski rezultat), laparoskopija nakon početnih većih ulaganja donosi uštede za zdravstvo i društvo u cjelini: kraći boravak u bolnici, brži povratak na radno mjesto, te manji invaliditet

    ABSTRACT: Between 1973 and 1988, AVSC supported 1,516,478 female sterilizations and 401,856 vasectomies in 50 countries. Overall, 73 deaths were attributable to voluntary sterilization procedures (yielding mortality rates of 4.7 deaths per 100,000 female sterilizations and 0.5 per 100,000 vasectomies). Causes of death, in order of frequency, were anesthesia (22), intestinal injury (20), infection (19), intra-abdominal hemorrhage (6) and other (6). The female sterilization mortality rate declined from 7.1 per 100,000 procedures in 1973-1981 to 3.7 per 100,000 in 1982-1988. Safer anesthesia practices and improved infection control contributed most to this decline. The mortality rate related to surgical errors declined proportionately less than the rates related to anesthesia and infection. Contraceptive sterilization has become a very safe procedure in these 50 countries, where anesthesia (local and general), surgical technique (minilaparotomy and laparoscopy) and timing of the procedure (interval and postpartum) vary substantially. Future deaths will probably be rare. However, expert surgeons should review each case because identifying the most likely cause of death is always complex and these analyses help shape surgical contraception practices.

    ABSTRACT: Analysis of data from the 1988 National Survey of Family Growth--corrected for the underreporting of abortion--reveals that contraceptive failure during the first year of use remains a serious problem in the United States, contributing substantially to unintended pregnancy. The pill continues to be the most effective reversible method for which data were available (8% of users accidentally became pregnant during the first year of use), followed by the condom (15%). Periodic abstinence is the method most likely to fail (26%), but accidental pregnancy is also relatively common among women using spermicides (25%). Failure rates vary more by user characteristics such as age, marital status and poverty status than by method, suggesting the extent to which failure results from improper and irregular use rather than from the inherent limitations of the method.
