Chapter 68: Female Reproductive System: Functional Anatomy, Oogenesis and Follicular Development 607 Primary Oocytes the oocytes undergo two meiotic divisions (the meiotic cycle) at different stages of development to produce a haploid ovum. First Meiotic Division the first meiotic division starts in primary oocytes during fetal life, which occurs at about 8th week of pregnancy is arrested in prophase. However, the first meiotic division is not completed in fetal life, not even till puberty; in fact, it is completed just prior to ovulation. Therefore, the life span of a primary oocyte can be up to 50 years, as ovulation can continue up to this age. The suspension of oocyte division in prophase for such a long period depends on the internal hormonal Fig. The stroma of ovary has two parts: environment provided by the surrounding supporting cortex and medulla.

By the time of puberty about the primary function of ovary is to develop ovarian 200,000 and by the age of 30 only about 26,000 oocytes follicles and release ovum at the time of ovulation, and to remain in the ovary. At menopause, ovaries are virtually secrete steroid hormones that control various reproduc- devoid of oocytes. During a woman’s life, only about 400 oocytes are ovulated and the other oocytes degenerate. A major difference in male and female gametogen- Unlike spermatogenesis that starts at puberty and con- esis is that the process of spermatogenesis is a con- tinues throughout life, the process of oogenesis starts in tinuous phenomenon and the production of sperm is fetal life and ceases at menopause. Also, the process of unlimited, whereas primary oocytes degenerate with development of each spermatocyte is completed in few age (Application Box 68. As new oogonia cannot be manufactured in ovary, the intrauterine life is completed with ovulation that occurs oocytes totally disappear at the time of menopause. The stages of development of oocytes occur in three an oocyte may be as old as 50 years. The oocyte that ovulates at about stages: Oogonium becoming primary oocyte, primary 40 years of age is about 25 years older than the oocyte that ovulates at the age of 15.

Oogonia Becoming Primary Oocyte Primary Oocyte Converted to Oogonia Secondary Oocyte the primordial germ cells (oogonia) migrate from the yolk sac of embryo to the genital ridge at about 6th week of In fetus, oogonia develop into primary oocyte, which gestation. Thus, all eggs present at birth are primary oocytes 608 Section 7: Reproductive System Fig. Note, first meiotic division of oocyte begins during fetal life and completes prior to ovulation, whereas second meiotic division completes at the time of fertilization. The primary oocyte that is destined for ovulation is called follicular growth or folliculogenesis. This division results in production of two structures: Thus, a single ovarian follicle may develop from fetal one is the daughter cell, called secondary oocyte con- life till menopause. However, the cytoplasmic division is grossly unequal nant follicle finally matures and releases ovum, in this process in which the secondary oocyte retains whereas rest others undergo degeneration (atresia). Thus, the polar body becomes com- atresia during the reproductive life of a woman. Stages of Follicular Development Secondary Oocyte Forming Ovum Folliculogenesis occurs in four stages: Stages 1– 4 (Figs. The second meiotic division occurs in the secondary oocyte after ovulation, and is arrested in metaphase. Thus, meiotic cycle is the ovarian follicle, also called Graafian follicle begins as a completed only on fertilization. The primordial follicle consists of a primary oocyte ing 23 chromosomes and the second polar body are at the center surrounded by a layer of spindle cells formed (Fig. Chapter 68: Female Reproductive System: Functional Anatomy, Oogenesis and Follicular Development 609 Figs.

All these development occur slowly in the prepubertal This is the most rapid stage of development. After 5–7 days of onset of menses, a single follicle losa cells are highly steroidogenic. The size of the antrum and the amount of antral fluid slowly resulting in release are increased significantly. This pushes the oocyte to of oocyte from the follicle, the process called ovulation.

Note the large, homogeneously anechoic collection of synovial fluid with marked tendon sheath widening. The synovial fluid accumulation dislocates extensor tendons, thus allowing a careful assessment of their shape and profile. Longitudinal ultrasound image of the radial aspect of the left dorsal wrist showing significant thickening of the abductor pollicis longus tendon sheath (asterisk), appearances consistent with De Quervain tenosynovitis. High-resolution ultrasound in the diagnosis of upper limb disorders: a tertiary referral centre experience. However, de Quervain tenosynovitis pain is more common with activity, while the pain and numbness associated with cheiralgia paresthetica is present at rest. Treatment of de Quervain tenosynovitis with ultrasound- guided injections is a safe and effective approach so long as careful attention is paid to the location of the radial artery and superficial branch of the radial nerve (Fig. Careful neurologic examination to identify pre-existing neurologic deficits especially of the radial nerve that may later be attributed to the procedure should be performed on all patients before beginning ultrasound-guided injection for de Quervain tenosynovitis. Complications of surgery to treat de Quervain can often be diagnosed with ultrasonography (Fig. C: Oblique ultrasound image showing the gap (arrow) between the two neuromas (void arrowheads) of the superficial radial nerve. Ultrasound-guided injection of triamcinolone and bupivacaine in the management of De Quervain’s disease. Sonographic identification of the intracompartmental septum in de Quervain’s disease. Ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection for the treatment of de Quervain’s tenosynovitis. Passing obliquely over the extensor carpi radialis brevis and extensor carpi radialis longus tendons of the second compartment are the abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis of the first compartment which all intersect at their musculotendinous junctions (Fig. This intersection is just proximal to the extensor retinaculum which serves to tether down the tendons and may contribute to the evolution of intersection syndrome. The key landmark when performing ultrasound-guided injection for intersection syndrome is Lister’s tubercle and the intersection of the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus tendons and tendon sheaths. Passing obliquely over the extensor carpi radialis brevis and extensor carpi radialis longus tendons of the second compartment are the abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis of the first compartment which all intersect at their musculotendinous junctions. A large number of flexor and extensor tendons pass from the forearm across the wrist to the hand. In order to help delineate the myriad extensor tendons within this anatomic region, anatomists have organized them into six compartments (Table 54. It is at the intersection of the first and second extensor compartments which contain the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus tendons and associated muscles that a painful tenosynovitis known as intersection syndrome can occur (Figs. The inflammation responsible for the pain and functional disability associated with intersection syndrome is due to repetitive flexion and extension of the wrist when performing such activities such as cross-country skiing, sculling, rowing, and weight lifting. Often confused with other radial-sided wrist pain syndromes including de Quervain tenosynovitis, cheiralgia paresthetica (Wartenberg syndrome), and arthritis of the first metacarpal joint, intersection syndrome tends to occur more dorsally and proximally than these other conditions (Table 54. Intersection syndrome is caused by inflammation of the tendons and tendon sheaths of the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus muscles. Contrast-enhanced coronal fat-saturated T1-weighted image (508/14) demonstrates severe peritendinous, muscle, and subcutaneous edema. One of the tendons of the first extensor compartment is seen distally on the radial side. Axial magnetic resonance imaging (T2-weighted fat-suppressed fast spin-echo) demonstrates peritendinous and subcutaneous edema extending proximally and distally from the intersection of the first (abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis) and second (extensor carpi radialis longus and extensor carpi radialis brevis) compartment tendons (arrow). Palpation at the site of tendon intersection may reveal tenderness, color, and swelling. A positive creaking tendon sign is often present if there is significant inflammation (Fig. The examiner may appreciate what has been named “wet leather” crepitus with flexion and extension of the wrist. Plain radiographs of the wrist are indicated in all patients suspected of suffering from intersection syndrome to rule out occult bony pathology and to identify calcific tendinitis. Based on the patient’s clinical presentation, additional testing may be indicated, including complete blood cell count, uric acid, sedimentation rate, and antinuclear antibody testing. Magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound imaging of the wrist is indicated to assess the status of the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus tendons and tendon sheaths as well as to identify other occult pathology, including coexistent bursitis, arthritis, and gout involving the first metacarpal joint, cheiralgia paresthetica, and de Quervain tenosynovitis (Fig. T2 axial fat suppressed image demonstrating tendinitis and synovitis at the point of intersection of the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus tendons (arrow). With the patient in the above position, the Lister tubercle of the radius is identified by palpation (Fig. Identification of the affected tendons is facilitated by having the patient extend the wrist against the examiner’s resistance. At the level of Lister tubercle, a high-frequency linear ultrasound transducer is placed in a transverse position over the intersection of the extensor carpi radialis longus, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, the extensor pollicis brevis, and the abductor pollicis longus tendons (Figs. The tendons will appear as the hyperechoic “hole” in the hypoechoic tendon sheath. The ultrasound transducer may be turned into the longitudinal axis to further delineate the point of intersection (Fig. When the point of intersection is identified, the tendons are evaluated for tendinopathy, tendinitis, abnormal fluid collections, soft tissue masses, and extrinsic compression (Figs. Proper transverse position of the linear high-frequency ultrasound transducer to perform ultrasound evaluation for intersection syndrome. Transverse ultrasound image demonstrating the relationship of the tendon and tendon sheaths of the first and second extensor compartments and their point of intersection. Edema and fluid at the musculotendinous junction of the extensor compartment 1 as it crosses compartment 2 (arrow). The use of ultrasound imaging and magnetic resonance imaging combined with a careful history and physical examination can distinguish intersection syndrome from de Quervain tenosynovitis and other causes of radial-sided wrist and hand pain. Statistically, there is a predilection for ganglion cyst development over the dorsal scapholunate interval (Figs. Ganglion cysts also frequently occur on the volar aspect of the wrist and fingers (Figs. There is a predilection for ganglion cyst development over the dorsal scapholunate interval. Transverse ultrasound image demonstrating classic ganglion cyst on the dorsal wrist. A: A lump (arrow) over the dorsal aspect of the wrist that was evident only during palmar flexion. Longitudinal image of the volar aspect of the fourth digit demonstrates an anechoic ganglion cyst (large arrow) associated with the flexor tendon (small arrows). The differential diagnosis can be difficult solely on clinical grounds as benign ganglion cysts that present in areas other than the wrist and the ankle are often misdiagnosed as solid tumors and solid tumors that appear over the wrist and ankle are often misdiagnosed as benign ganglion cysts. Such misdiagnosis can lead to disastrous consequences if a malignant solid tumor is erroneously diagnosed as a benign ganglion cyst (Fig.
