In addition, we have assessed the importance of the numerous risk factors that have been associated with the condition to identify the key factors that influence its occurrence. Nonhysteroscopic Myomectomy and Fertility Outcomes: A Systematic Review. The reported incidences of UFs also ranged widely (217–3745 cases per 100 000 women‐years; Figure 1A).48, 66 Only one study reported solely on women with asymptomatic UFs,47 and at least one third of studies described mixed populations of women with symptomatic and asymptomatic UFs. Uterine fibroids (UFs), also known as uterine leiomyomas, are benign smooth muscle neoplasms of the uterus that affect women of reproductive age. Further observational data from large well‐conducted prospective studies on the occurrence of both symptomatic and asymptomatic UFs will therefore prove invaluable in improving our understanding of the aetiology of this often debilitating disease, and may thus facilitate progress in its management. This evaluation reveals the important risk factors to be age, premenopausal state, hypertension, family history, time since last birth, and food additive and soybean milk consumption. Uterine fibroids occur in about 70% of women. Almost all the included studies were subject to selection bias (Table S3).

Time since last birth increased the risk of developing UFs approximately two–threefold in women who last gave birth 5 or more years ago compared with those who gave birth more recently, in both black [the Black Women's Health Study (100% black women)] and white populations [the Nurses’ Health Study II (1% black women); Figure 3D; Table 1].51, 60 Premenopausal women were at an approximately three–fivetimes higher risk of symptomatic UFs than postmenopausal women in two registry studies (Figure 3C; Table 1).48, 75 Furthermore, in an Italian single‐centre case–control study, premenopausal women showed a tenfold increase in UF risk compared with postmenopausal women (Table 1).78, Parity was associated with a reduced risk of developing UFs. Data on UF incidence, prevalence and associated risk factors were extracted from 60 publications. Black race was the only factor that was recurrently reported to increase UF risk, by two-threefold compared with white race.

Intra‐ and Inter‐Rater Agreement Describing Myometrial Lesions Using Morphologic Uterus Sonographic Assessment: A Pilot Study. Incidence increases with age during the reproductive years such that cases occur in 20% to 50% of women older than 30 years. Analyses of the Nurses’ Health Study II and the Black Women's Health Study showed that inclusion of pelvic examination as a diagnostic method in addition to ultrasound or hysterectomy can increase the reporting of UFs compared with ultrasound or hysterectomy alone (Figure 1A).44, 62. In a retrospective, single‐centre study of the ultrasound records of women in Israel experiencing UF symptoms, those aged 41–50 or 51–60 years were 10 times more likely to have UFs than those aged 21–30 years (Table 1).74 However, in a postmenopausal age group, i.e. Epub 2020 Sep 19.

Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! Deep Dyspareunia: Review of Pathophysiology and Proposed Future Research Priorities. Background: Uterine fibroids (UFs) are the most common neoplasm affecting women that can cause significant morbidity and may adversely impact fertility. This is the first systematic review of the epidemiology of UFs to analyse the incidence and prevalence of UFs and evaluate the risk factors associated with the condition, and to identify those risk factors with the largest effects. There was a marked difference in UF incidence between racial groups, confirming that UFs are much more common in black than in white women (Figure 1B). 2018. Laparoscopic management of a degenerating cystic leiomyoma imitating an ovarian cyst: A case report. Study and reporting quality was good in all the registry studies and most of the ‘other observational’ studies, but poorer in over two thirds of the single‐centre studies. prospective or retrospective); patient group (e.g. ing history. In the studies that reported the lowest incidences, UF diagnoses were based on self‐report or were confirmed by surgery.48, 71, 72 Most studies, reporting a wide range of incidences from 845 to 3745 cases per 100 000 women‐years, were based on self‐reports of a physician‐made diagnosis after ultrasound or hysterectomy.50, 66 UF incidence was reported to be higher when pelvic examination was included as a diagnostic method than when only ultrasound or hysterectomy was used (Figure 1A, B). Tweetable abstract: Childbirth and myoma treatment by uterine artery occlusion: do they share a common biology? There was no significant difference in the risk of developing UFs between women of all BMIs who had ever smoked and those who had never smoked (OR 0.8, 95% CI 0.5–1.1).75 In three other studies (the California Teachers Study, an Italian single‐centre study and a Thai multicentre study), smoking was found to have a smaller but still statistically significant protective effect in women who currently smoked or had ever smoked compared with those who had never smoked.48, 77, 78 In the Black Women's Health Study, however, smoking status was not found to have a significant effect on UF occurrence.61, Two reproductive factors were found to increase the risk of UFs and three were found to exert a protective effect. Non-hormonal mediators of uterine fibroid growth. Narasimman M, De Bedout V, Castillo DE, Miteva MI. Studies of genetics relating to risk of UFs were beyond the scope of the current review and were also excluded. Most studies on UF epidemiology published before the mid‐1990s were based on diagnosis by pathological examination of surgical specimens.30 These older data therefore represent a population of highly selected patients who required hysterectomy, who may constitute only 10–30% of women with ultrasound evidence of UFs.43, 44 The development and widespread use of ultrasonography for UF detection since the mid‐1990s has expanded the epidemiological data on UFs to represent a wider population. 2017 Apr 11;17(1):28. doi: 10.1186/s12905-017-0386-y.

Epidemiology and Risk Factors of Uterine Myomas (Gloria D’Alessandro, MD, Fabio Barra, MD and Simone Ferrero, MD, PhD, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Department of Neurosciences, Rehabilitation, Ophthalmology, Genetics, Maternal and Child Health, University of Genoa, Italy, and others) UF risk was up to 70% lower in women who currently used oral contraceptives than in those who had never used them.46, 77, 78 In addition, use of the injectable contraceptive DMPA was found to protect against UF development, more than halving UF risk.77 The mechanism of action of steroidal contraceptives responsible for this effect is not clear. Although uterine leiomyomata (fibroids) have been the leading indication for hysterectomy in the United States for decades, the epidemiological data on fibroid prevalence and risk factors are limited.

This time frame was chosen because developments in diagnostic techniques since the mid‐1990s have affected the rate of UF diagnosis. After manual screening of titles and abstracts, 82 publications remained. The UF risk factor with the strongest evidence is black race. Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research. Epidemiology; incidence; leiomyoma; prevalence; race; risk factors; uterine fibroids. We identified 12 risk factors that play an important role in UF epidemiology. The publications retrieved were divided into five categories: registries; single‐centre studies; ‘other observational’ studies (such as community‐based investigations conducted in more than one centre); hysterectomy studies; and pregnancy studies. This study is the first systematic review of the epidemiology of UFs. Despite the prevalence and significant impact of fibroids, public awareness about the condition is extremely low.

The quality of the epidemiological data varies widely between the studies reviewed, however. Over 30 factors relating to demographic characteristics, reproductive and disease status, dietary and other environmental conditions were found to have a significant effect on UF risk (Table S2). In our systematic review of the epidemiology of UFs, we found wide variations in both the methodology and quality of the 60 selected studies, and also in the epidemiological data they report, with UF incidence ranging between 217 and 3745 cases per 100 000 women‐years and UF prevalence ranging between 4.5% and 68.6%. Uterine fibroids occur in about 70% of women. [ 1, 2] Despite the … Uterine Myomas: Focused Ultrasound Surgery. Objectives: Owing to the large number of risk factors discussed in the selected studies, here we focus on those risk factors for which the magnitude of the effect was approximately the same as or greater than the effect of race (Table 1; i.e. Uterine fibroids (myomas or leiyomymas) are benign, monoclonal tumors of the smooth muscle cells found in the human uterus. women undergoing investigations for possible UF symptoms). 2021 Jan 1;20(1):1. doi: 10.1186/s12939-020-01327-9. Evaluation of the incidence or prevalence of UFs was not the primary objective of most of the included studies, but they were reported in 51 of them. Comparing Perioperative Outcomes of Uterine Artery Embolization and Hysterectomy in Insurer and Demographically Diverse Populations: A Retrospective, Multi-Center Database Study.
