    What test is used to insufflate the falopian tubes, checking for patency?

    • A.

      Rubin's test

    • B.

      Schiller's test

    • C.

      Gram stain

    • D.

      Conization

  • 3. 

    All of the following ligaments support and suspend the uterus and fallopian tubes, EXCEPT

    • A.

      Broad ligament

    • B.

      Cardinal ligament

    • C.

      Round ligament

    • D.

      Uterine-fallopian ligament

    Correct Answer
    D. Uterine-fallopian ligament
    Explanation
    The uterine-fallopian ligament does not exist in the human anatomy. The correct ligaments that support and suspend the uterus and fallopian tubes are the broad ligament, cardinal ligament, and round ligament. The broad ligament is a large fold of peritoneum that attaches the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries to the pelvic sidewall. The cardinal ligament provides support to the cervix and upper vagina. The round ligament connects the front of the uterus to the groin region.

    What is the external region between the vulva and the anus called?

    • A.

      Periosteum

    • B.

      Peritoneum

    • C.

      Perineum

    • D.

      Vestibule

    Correct Answer
    C. Perineum
    Explanation
    The external region between the vulva and the anus is called the perineum. It is a diamond-shaped area that includes the skin and muscles in that region. The perineum provides support to the pelvic organs and plays a role in sexual function. It is also the area where an episiotomy may be performed during childbirth. The terms periosteum and peritoneum refer to different anatomical structures and are not related to the external region between the vulva and the anus. The vestibule, on the other hand, refers to a different anatomical area in the female reproductive system.

    • A.

      Dextran and Normal Saline

    • B.

      Distilled Water or Normal Saline

    • C.

      Dextran or Glycine

    • D.

      Ringers Lactate and Glycine

    Correct Answer
    C. Dextran or Glycine
    Explanation
    During a Hysteroscopy procedure, either Dextran or Glycine can be used to distend the uterine cavity. These fluids are commonly used because they are safe and effective in providing clear visualization of the uterine cavity. Dextran is a colloid solution that helps to maintain the uterine shape and provides good distension. Glycine, on the other hand, is an electrolyte solution that is isotonic and non-conductive, making it suitable for use during the procedure. Both fluids help to create a clear field of view for the surgeon and facilitate the examination of the uterine cavity.

    For an Intrauterine Ablation the patient should be in the _______ position

    • A.

      Trendelenburg

    • B.

      Lithotomy

    • C.

      Prone

    • D.

      Kraske

    Correct Answer
    B. Lithotomy
    Explanation
    For an Intrauterine Ablation, the patient should be in the lithotomy position. This position involves the patient lying on their back with their legs elevated and flexed, supported by stirrups. This position allows for better access to the uterus and provides optimal visualization for the procedure. The trendelenburg position involves the patient lying flat on their back with the head lower than the feet, which is not ideal for this procedure. Prone position involves lying face down, and kraske position involves lying on the side with the knees and hips flexed. Neither of these positions would be appropriate for an intrauterine ablation.

    During a Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy, the endoscopic technique is utilized to _______

    • A.

      Minimize scarring

    • B.

      Disconnect the uterus from its ligaments

    • C.

      Remove the uterus and fallopian tubes

    • D.

      Remove the fallopian tubes and uterine ligaments

    Correct Answer
    B. Disconnect the uterus from its ligaments
    Explanation
    During a Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy, the endoscopic technique is utilized to disconnect the uterus from its ligaments. This technique involves making small incisions in the abdomen and inserting a laparoscope to visualize and access the uterus. By disconnecting the uterus from its ligaments, it can be safely removed through the vagina, resulting in minimal scarring compared to traditional open surgery. This approach offers a quicker recovery time and reduced postoperative pain for the patient.

  • 22. 

    A patient ha been diagnosed with endometriosis and has to get a Hysterectomy.  Why would the surgeon choos to take an abdominal approach versus a vaginal approach?

    • A.

      The upper third of the vagina has to be removed

    • B.

      The ovaries will not be removed and have to be carefully dissected away

    • C.

      The uterus is enlarged

    • D.

      The fallopian tubes also have to be removed

    Correct Answer
    C. The uterus is enlarged
    Explanation
    The surgeon may choose to take an abdominal approach instead of a vaginal approach because the uterus is enlarged. An abdominal approach allows better visibility and access to the enlarged uterus, making it easier for the surgeon to remove it. In contrast, a vaginal approach may not provide enough space or visibility to safely remove the enlarged uterus.

    A vaginoplasty is performed to treat all of the following, EXCEPT

    • A.

      Congenital defect

    • B.

      Trauma

    • C.

      Cancer

    • D.

      Tubal abscess

    Correct Answer
    D. Tubal abscess
    Explanation
    A vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reconstruct or create a vagina. It is commonly used to treat congenital defects, trauma, and cancer that affect the vaginal area. However, a tubal abscess is not related to the vagina. It is an infection or collection of pus in the fallopian tubes, which requires a different type of treatment, such as antibiotics or drainage. Therefore, a vaginoplasty would not be performed to treat a tubal abscess.

    What medication is used during a Vaginal Hysterectomy to reduce vaginal mucosa bleeding?

    • A.

      1% lidocaine with epinephrine

    • B.

      Wydase

    • C.

      Glycine

    • D.

      Oxytocin

    Correct Answer
    A. 1% lidocaine with epinephrine
    Explanation
    During a Vaginal Hysterectomy, 1% lidocaine with epinephrine is used to reduce vaginal mucosa bleeding. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that numbs the area, while epinephrine is a vasoconstrictor that constricts blood vessels, reducing bleeding. This combination helps to minimize bleeding during the surgical procedure, ensuring a smoother and safer operation. Wydase, Glycine, and Oxytocin are not typically used for reducing vaginal mucosa bleeding during a Vaginal Hysterectomy.

    The skin prep for a radical Vulvectomy should include __________.

    • A.

      Perineal area and anus

    • B.

      Abdominal and thigh areas

    • C.

      Everything from mid-chest to umbilicus

    • D.

      Abdominal and perineal areas

    Correct Answer
    D. Abdominal and perineal areas
    Explanation
    The skin prep for a radical Vulvectomy should include the abdominal and perineal areas. This is because a radical Vulvectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the vulva, which includes the external female genitalia. The abdominal area needs to be prepped to ensure a sterile environment for the surgery, while the perineal area, which includes the area between the anus and the vulva, also needs to be prepped to prevent contamination during the procedure.
