Hydatidiform Mole (Molar Pregnancy)

Trophoblastic hyperplasia associated with normal gestation, or molar pregnancy. It is characterized by the swelling of the CHORIONIC VILLI and elevated human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Hydatidiform moles or molar pregnancy may be categorized as complete or partial based on their gross morphology, histopathology, and karyotype.

01/01/2000 - "In a prospective, simple randomised study, we evaluated the relative efficacy of hormonal (oral contraceptive pill) and non-hormonal (intrauterine contraceptive device) methods of contraception as fertility regulatory agents in patients with complete hydatidiform moles and assessed the development of complications and sequelae if any, following their use. "
11/01/1975 - "Certain conditions lend themselves to diagnosis with ultrasound: hydatidiform mole, intrauterine pregnancy, dermoid cyst, ascites, simple ovarian cyst, and lost intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCD's). "
06/01/1983 - " Discussion focuses on methods, instrumentation, method for examination (grasping the instrument, setup, light source, anesthesia, dilatation, technique, and normal endometrium); cervical neoplasia; nonneoplastic lesions of the endometrium (endometrial polyp, submucous myoma, endometrial hyperplasia); intrauterine device localization; neoplastic lesions of the endometrium; precursors (adenocarcinoma); hysteroscopy in pregnancy (embryoscopy, hydatidiform mole, postpartum hemorrhage, incomplete abortion, spontaneous abortion, induced abortions, and amnioscopy); and examinations of children and infants.
