Transcript

  • 1. Reproductive System Zlatko Zebic
  • 2. Organs of Female Reproductive System
    • Breasts
    • Fallopian tubes
    • Ovaries
    • Uterus
    • Vagina
    • Vulva
  • 3. Uterus
    • Hollow, pear-shaped organ
    • Contains:
      • Thick muscular wall
      • Mucous membrane lining
      • Rich blood supply
    • Lies in the center of the pelvic cavity between the bladder and the rectum
    • Normally bent slightly forward (anteflexion)
  • 4. Uterus Structure
    • Three sections
      • Fundus – upper portion of the uterus
      • Corpus – body
      • Cervix – lower portion or the neck of the uterus
    • Three layers
      • Endometrium –the inner layer, contains a rich blood supply
      • Myometrium –tick muscular wall of the uterus
      • Perimetrium –the outer layer
  • 5. Uterus Function
    • The uterus provides structural integrity and support to the bladder, bowel, pelvic bones and organs
    • Uterus is the organ in which developing fetus resides
      • Uterus accepts a fertilized ovum which passes through the utero-tubal junction from the fallopian tube.
      • Ovum is implanted into the endometrium, and derives nourishment from blood vessels which develop exclusively for this purpose.
  • 6. Fallopian Tubes
    • Also called uterine tubes or oviducts
    • Approximately 51/2 inches long
    • Extend from the outer edge of the uterus and assist in transporting the ova and sperm
    • The meeting of the egg and sperm, called conception, normally takes place within the upper half of the fallopian tubes
  • 7. TAH and BSO
    • Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH and BSO) is a surgical removal of the entire uterus, both ovaries, and both fallopian tubes
    • Removal of the uterus renders the patient unable to bear children (as does removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes), and changes her hormonal levels
  • 8. Indications
    • Hysterectomy is usually performed for problems with the uterus itself or problems with the entire female reproductive complex.
    • Some of the conditions treated by hysterectomy include:
      • uterine fibroids (myomas)
      • Endometriosis (growth of menstrual tissue outside of the uterine cavity)
      • vaginal prolapse
      • heavy or abnormal menstrual bleeding
      • three forms of cancer (uterine, advanced cervical, ovarian)
      • Hysterectomy is also a surgical last resort in uncontrollable postpartum haemorrhage.
  • 9. Robotic Hysterectomy
    • Robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci Surgical System
    • Less invasive treatment option then open abdominal hysterectomy
    • Potential benefits include: 
    • Significantly less pain
    • Less blood loss
    • Fewer complications
    • Less scarring
    • A shorter hospital stay
    • A faster return to normal daily activities
  • 10. The da Vinci
    • The da Vinci Surgical System is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology.
    • The System allows your surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of micro-instruments within the operative site.

    • The da Vinci Surgical System
    • has been successfully used in
    • tens of thousands of minimally
    • invasive procedures worldwide.
