AbstractObjectives Colorado ’s relatively high altitudes have been reported to lower birth weight but the most recent studies were conducted 20 years ago. Since then, the accuracy for assigning altitude of residence has been improved with the use of geocoding, and recommendations for pregnancy weight gain have changed. We t herefore sought to determine whether currently, residence at high altitude (≥ 2500 m, 8250 ft) lowers birth weight in Colorado.Methods Birth certificate data for all live births (n  = 670,017) to Colorado residents from 2007 to 2016 were obtained from the Colorado...

Our digestive system, a group of organs that includes the stomach and colon, harbors nearly 100 trillion bacteria. Collectively known as the “gut microbiome,” these bacteri...

ConclusionCurettage for miscarriage or undesired pregnancy is not exempt from complications, such as hemorrhage, simple perforation, and infection. Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae and necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
