As we have seen, whatever the Bible may be it is not a manual for morality. Genesis 16 takes it to 11. (But don't worry, it gets worse.)Now Sarai, Abram ’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar;2 so she said to Abram, “TheLord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her. ”Abram agreed to what Sarai said.3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife.4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.Credit to the NI...

We read with great interest the recent study by Zhu et  al1 entitled “Rupture Risk of Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations During Pregnancy and Puerperium: A Single-Center Experience and Pooled Data Analysis.” The authors performed a retrospective study to compare risk of rupture in pregnant and nonpregnant female patients with arteriovenous malfor mation (AVM) and assess current evidence regarding rupture risk of AVM during pregnancy and puerperium by pooled data analysis. They concluded that an increase in annual rate of cerebral AVM hemorrhage during pregnancy and puerperium was found.

Authors: Iciek R, Brazert M, Wender-Ozegowska E, Pietryga M, Brazert J Abstract Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is still related to altered fetal growth and severe maternal complications. We studied the possible role of placental visfatin/nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) in fetal development in T1DM pregnancies, the possible role of placental visfatin in fetal macrosomia. Sixty five pregnant women with T1DM and singleton pregnancy were qualified into the study. Placental visfatin expression was by analysed by RT-PCR. We demonstrated the lowest expression of placental visfatin in women who delivered ne...

Authors: Merinopoulou E, Pokras S, Pimenta JM, Blini V, Veronesi C, Buda S, Degli Esposti L, Lambrelli D Abstract BACKGROUND: Preterm labor (PTL)/preterm birth (PTB) impose significant burden on healthcare systems.

We aimed to describe women with uncomplicated pregnancies and associated costs for these women and their infants. METHODS: Data on women aged 12-44 years with uncomplicated pregnancies who delivered between 1/9/2009-31/12/2...

(Anesth Analg. 2017;125(4):1275–1280) Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has been used in severe cases of maternal H1N1 infection, cardiogenic shock, massive pulmonary embolism, and peripartum hemorrhage. However, although the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP) suggested ECLS as an appropriate therapy for maternal salvage, the American Heart Association did not endorse the SOAP recommendation at that time due to the lack of cohort data on maternal outcome. Currently, cohort data are available. The authors of the present study contributed to this data and described a consecutive cohort of 11 wom...
