In this small prospective cohort study, use of the etonogestrel implant and the levonorgestrel intrauterine device for an additional year past their FDA-approved duration was associated with an acceptably low failure rate.
A comparison of breast biopsy diagnosis by clinical pathologists found a 75% concordance with a consensus-derived expert diagnostic interpretation. Concordance was lowest with the diagnosis of atypical, with under-diagnosis noted in 35% of cases.
It is not uncommon that we receive reports from radiology regarding the location of an intrauterine device (IUD) in a patient that we have sent for a pelvic ultrasound examination for an entirely different reason (e.g., an adnexal mass). These incidental findings of low-lying or malpositioned IUDs are a conundrum for the practitioner.
