The Management and Outcome of Gestational Trophoblastic Disease
Dr. David S. Miller and his staff, and of the Department of OB/GYN will review all medical records of patients diagnosed with gestational trophoblastic disease at UT Southwestern and Parkland Heath and Hospital System. Clinico-pathologic patient data will be obtained. A single spreadsheet will be filled out for each patient and collected by Dr. Miller and his staff. Dr. Miller and his staff will be responsible for transferring the clinical information to a database. Dr. Miller and his staff will be responsible for storing the spreadsheets in a locked cabinet of a locked office. Dr. Miller and his staff will be the sole investigators having access to identifying patient information. Once the data collection for each patient is completed, no personal identifiers (such as name or medical record #) will be maintained on the patients included in this review for data analysis or any other purpose.
All patients diagnosed with gestational trophoblastic disease since 1976 will have their records reviewed.
