Comparison between maternal and neonatal outcome of PPROM in the cases of amniotic fluid index (AFI) of more and less than 5  cm.

Comparison between maternal and neonatal outcome of PPROM in the cases of amniotic fluid index (AFI) of more and less than 5 cm. J Obstet Gynaecol. 2018 Feb 09;:1-5 Authors: Mousavi AS, Hashemi N, Kashanian M, Sheikhansari N, Bordbar A, Parashi S Abstract The study was performed on pregnant women with a gestational age of 26-32 weeks of pregnancy, who had been admitted to the hospital with a confirmed diagnosis of premature rupture of membranes. In all eligible women, ultrasounds were performed for the evaluation of amniotic fluid index. Then, the women were divided into two groups according to amniotic fluid index of ≥5 cm and

(SAN DIEGO) — A southern white rhino has become pregnant through artificial insemination at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park — giving hope for efforts to save a subspecies of one of the world’s most recognizable animals, researchers announced Thursday. Scientists will be watching closely to see if the rhino named Victoria can carry her calf to term over 16 to 18 months of gestation. If she does, researchers hope someday she could serve as a surrogate mother and could give birth to the related northern white rhino, whose population is down to two females after decades of decimation by poachers. The mother and...

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatal ultrasound represents the standard diagnostic exam for conjoined twins. CT-MRI virtual autopsy (virtopsy) may be an option if the couple refuses to authorize necropsy or may be useful to plan a minimally invasive autopsy preserving the external phenotype.

CONCLUSIONS: One should consider all possibilities before suggesting termination of a very desired pregnancy. This woman had also been advised by other specialists in reproductive endocrinology that conception with her own oocytes (as did occur here) was not possible and she should consider donor oocytes based on her marked diminished oocyte reserve.

Authors: Vinayak S, Brownie S Abstract Unrealized maternal and child health goals continue to challenge Kenya where adverse outcomes remain high and diagnostic services are limited. The acute shortage of doctors and radiographers requires alternate human resources for health (HRH) with the ability to identify risk factors in pregnancy through Point-Of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS). A specialist radiologist and ultrasonography team partnered with midwives to adopt interprofessional task sharing and capacity building. Faculty from the Radiology Department of our hospital designed and implemented the project which was carri...

Authors: Deliba┼č IB, Isao─člu Ü, Tanriverdi EÇ, Yilmaz M Abstract Here, the authors report a case of Cantrell's syndrome which was diagnosed by ultrasound at 12th week of pregnancy and confirmed by autopsy. Cantrell syndrome/pentalogy is defined as congenital combination of five main distinctive components: defects at the lower part of the sternum, anterior diaphragm, midline supraumbilical abdominal wall, diaphragmatic pericardium, and ectopia cordis. In the present case, in addition to these anomalies, there was cleft palate and cleft lip at the midline. Association of cleft lip and palate with Cantr...

CONCLUSIONS: The present results suggest that cervical conization does not affect IVF/ICSI outcomes. Patients can receive cervical conization before undertaking assisted reproductive technology. PMID: 29734546 [PubMed]

In conclusion, antenatal treatment with sildenafil improved airway morphogenesis and pulmonary vascular development, while selexipag only acted positively on pulmonary vascular development. The combination of both compounds did not act synergistically, probably because of a decreased efficiency of both compounds caused by CYP interaction and induction. These new insights create important possibilities for future treatment of pulmonary vascular abnormalities in CDH patients already in the antenatal period of life.

We present epidemiological and clinical aspects of patients with Beckwith Wiedemann syndrome diagnosed prenatally or in the early years of life, using data from EUROCAT (European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies) registries. The study population consisted of 371 cases identified between January 1990 and December 2015 in 34 registries from 16 European countries. There were 15 (4.0%) terminations of pregnancy after prenatal detection of severe anomaly/anomalies, 10 fetal deaths (2.7%), and 346 (93.3%) live-births. Twelve (3.6%) of the 330 live-births with available information on survival died in the first week of life, ...
