This study is conducted to determine the prevalence and obstetric outcome of grossly visible and/or palpable myoma among women who gave birth by caesarean section. Methods: A cross sectional study conducted in three teaching hospitals in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Data was collected using a pre-tested questioner. Results: A total of 404 cases were included in the study. The prevalence of myoma was 15.3% (62/404). Only 9.7% (6/62) of the myoma cases were diagnosed preoperatively with ultrasound. The number of myoma per case ranged from 1-to-14 with mean number of 3 ±2.7. The mean diameter of largest single myoma ...

Authors: Hesse CM, Tinius RA, Cooley BJ, Olenick AA, Blankenship MM, Hoover DL, Maples JM Abstract BACKGROUND: A plateau in volume of oxygen consumption (VO2) is the primary indicator for determining if an individual has reached their maximal aerobic capacity. However, secondary criteria can also be used to identify maximal effort (i.e. lactate level, rating of perceived exertion (RPE), percent of age-predicted maximal heart rate (HR) and respiratory exchange ratio (RER)). Age and gender-specific secondary criteria have been developed for the general population, but no secondary criteria have been established for p...

Publication date: Available online 27 October 2017 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism Author(s): Richard Ivell, Ravinder Anand-Ivell Neohormone systems evolved specifically to regulate those mammalian traits, such as internal fertilization, pregnancy and lactation, which have proved to be central to the success, environmental independence, and adaptability of mammals as a vertebrate group. Neohormones such as oxytocin or relaxin are not only involved in the regulation of mammary gland development and function, but are also significant components of milk itself. Particularly for the...

Finken Vertical transmission of glucocorticoids via breast milk might pose a mechanism through which lactating women could prepare their infants for the postnatal environment. The primary source of breast-milk glucocorticoids is probably the systemic circulation. Research from our group showed that milk cortisol and cortisone concentrations follow the diurnal rhythm of maternal hypothalamus...
