2.  At times, myomectomy is mandatory to effect delivery 
Background
Excision of a leiomyoma has never been a choice during caesarean section.
Method
Myomectomy of a massive fibroid was necessitated prior to delivering the baby.
Results
Delivery of a healthy was effected by Classical caesarean section.
Conclusion
Leiomyoma in pregnancy is not an unknown entity and is a cause of concern for being a source of excruciating pain, at times, during the ongoing gestation.

3.  An effective and safe innovation for the management of vault prolapse 
Objective
Considering the great variety of techniques and disagreement about the ideal route, there is a need for a simple, safe and effective method for the management of vault prolapse.
Study Design
51 cases of post- hysterectomy vault prolapse: 45 following vaginal and 6 after total abdominal hysterectomy were treated surgically by anterior abdominal wall colpopexy with autogenous rectus fascia strips.
Results
Except for minor complaints like vomiting, fever and urinary retention in 3.92% cases each (n = 2 each), no major complications were encountered. Moreover, no recurrence, thus far, on follow-up.
Conclusion
Using autogenous rectus fascia strips in anterior abdominal wall colpopexy is not only simple, cheap and effective method of treating apical prolapse but is also devoid of any serious complications as described with other techniques.
