1) A 25-year-old woman with Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome attended the local tertiary reproductive medicine service with her partner to discuss parenthood options. After extensive counselling she consented to uterine transplantation and this was performed 2 weeks ago. She is anxious to proceed with in vitro fertilisation (IVF). How soon after the transplant can IVF be attempted?
A 55-year-old woman attends the one-stop clinic with postmenopausal bleeding. She is fit and well with a body mass index of 32 kg/m2. She had 5 days
of heavy bleeding about 6 weeks previously. Examination was unremarkable.
Transvaginal ultrasound revealed an endometrial thickness of 7 mm, with no obvious polyps. Endometrial biopsy showed no evidence of hyperplasia, atypia or malignant change. She is relieved to receive the results though does still have occasional spotting. What management option do you recommend for this patient next?
3) Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) is structurally similar to which of the following hormones?
4) A 23-year-old woman who presented with a long history of dysmenorrhoea is undergoing a pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
What feature on MRI is always found with an accessory cavitated uterine malformation?
A 25-year-old woman with Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser Syndrome undergoes uterine transplantation and subsequently conceives with in vitro
fertilisation. The pregnancy progresses satisfactorily and fetal and maternal monitoring is reassuring. At 34 weeks’ gestation, ultrasound scan confirms
cephalic presentation, the baby’s estimated weight is on the 50th centile, umbilical artery Dopplers show normal end-diastolic flow, amniotic fluid
index is 15 cm and the placenta is normally sited, anteriorly. What will you advise regarding her delivery?
6) 1-A healthy 45-year-old, parous woman had a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for heavy menstrual bleeding. She presents to her GP 6 months after her surgery with vaginal dryness, dyspareunia and reduced ability to orgasm. What is the most appropriate treatment for her symptoms?
A fall in estradiol levels can result in vaginal smooth muscle atrophy and increased
vaginal acidity, leading to discomfort. Systemic HRT in isolation may not always
address these problems, and vaginal estrogen may still be required.
A 35-year-old woman has severe dysmenorrhoea. Ultrasound and MRI confirm the diagnosis of accessory cavitated uterine malformation
(ACUM). What treatment is most likely to cure the pain caused by ACUM?
This represents the best chance of cure, the other
treatments may control the pain but are not curative.
According to the World Health Organization, 8% of pregnant women worldwide have inadequate zinc intake. What benefit does zinc
supplementation have on pregnancy outcome?
9Reduced risk of preterm delivery – this is the only benefit

well woman. The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist 2022;24:58–66.
A 21-year-old woman is referred to the gynaecology clinic with postcoital bleeding. Examination reveals a normal cervix.
What investigation would you perform next?
A 39-year-old woman has a 5-month history of vague lower abdominal pain, anorexia and weight loss. Pelvic examination reveals a possible mass in
the right adnexa. What is the most appropriate investigation to request to diagnose ovarian malignancy?
11) A 56-year-old postmenopausal woman has a cystocele, stress urinary incontinence and dyspareunia. What prolapse treatment would you offer this patient to improve her sexual satisfaction?

A 35-year-old patient presents with severe abdominal pain at 22 weeks’ gestation. Serum amylase is raised, consistent with acute pancreatitis. What
do you advise with regard to her nutrition?
A 38-year-old multiparous woman presents with upper abdominal pain at 33 weeks’ gestation. She has acute onset of pain, radiating through to
her back, and a history of gallstones and cholecystitis prior to pregnancy. She presents within a couple of hours of onset of pain. Acute pancreatitis
is suspected. Her amylase is four times the upper limit of normal. What imaging would you recommend to confirm the diagnosis?
10-Ultrasound scan of upper abdomen
If diagnostic uncertainty or possible necrosis, MRI without contrast may be
used. CT is safe but is second-line investigation after ultrasound, if necessary.
AXR is not helpful to diagnose stones.

-A 34-year-old woman had an emergency caesarean section at 38 weeks’ gestation for fetal bradycardia in the first stage of labour. She had a history of
type 1 diabetes and was induced for reducing insulin requirements. She was admitted on day four post-delivery with signs of wound infection. Wound
swabs grew methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. What antibiotics
would you recommend for this patient, who is breastfeeding?
This is safe in breastfeeding and the drug of choice for treating MRSA. Mullin S, Burden C, Standing J, Neuberger F. Breastfeeding and drugs. The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist 2021;23:94–102.

treatment. What preoperative fasting advice would you recommend?
16) Which of the following hormones are stimulated by somatostatin?

reduce her risk of surgical site infection, what would you recommend with regard to preoperative pubic hair removal?
A 49-year-old woman is scheduled for total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for severe menorrhagia resistant to medical
treatment. There are no known drug allergies. What antibiotic prophylaxis is required?
A 23-year-old woman is having a planned elective caesarean section at 39 weeks’ gestation for breech presentation. She is fit and well with no
known drug allergies. What antibiotic treatment would you recommend to reduce her risk of postoperative endometritis?
A 36-year-old woman presents at 23 weeks’ gestation in her first pregnancy with painless vaginal bleeding. Subsequent investigations confirm
the diagnosis of stage 1B2 cervical cancer. What treatment should now be offered to this patient?

The pelvic exam is unremarkable except for slight vaginal bleeding. Transvaginal ultrasound reveals an endometrial thickness of 6 mm but no irregularities or polyps are seen. An endometrial biopsy is taken but the sample is inadequate. When you call her to inform her of the result she says the bleeding has stopped. What is the next stage you would recommend for this patient’s management?
25) All the following are correct on the ruptured uterus except:
The management options include total or subtotal hysterectomy or a simple repair of
Lower uterine segment rupture is the most common site and it may extend to the
bladder or laterally into the broad ligament.
Posterior rupture of the uterus is uncommon.
