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

A patient sent me this emailI had a query. I have conceived through IVF and ET was on Jan 6 th and my LMP was on Dec 20th.I got my ultrasound done on 16th Feb and in scan it showed the pregnancy is 5 weeks 6 days.If I calculate the growth of the baby from the date of the transfer, this seems fine, but if I calculate from the date of the LMP , it seems to be lagging behind.I am completely confused - can you please help ?This is a common problem, because IVF patients use their common sense and assume that doctors would calculate pregnancy dates based on the age of the embryo. Since they know the date of the embryo transfer, ...

In the decades since the introduction of ultrasound into routine obstetric practice, the advantages of ultrasound have moved beyond the simple ability to identify multiple pregnancies antenatally to the possibility of screening them for fetal anomalies, pre-eclampsia, preterm birth, and the complications specific to monochorionic pregnancies. Screening studies have often excluded twins because physiological differences impact on the validity and sensitivity of the screening tests in routine use in singletons, and therefore, the evidence of screening performance in multiple pregnancy lags behind the evidence from singleton pregnancies.

Accurate diagnosis of chorioamnionicity in multiple pregnancies is the key to appropriate clinical management of multiple gestation. Although prenatal ultrasound assessment of chorioamnionicity is well established and highly accurate if performed in early pregnancy, exceptions and artifacts arise from anatomic variations in multiple pregnancies and unusual sonographic features do exist. We have summarized our own experiences and reports from the literature on these pitfalls as follows: (1) Discordant fetal sex in monochorionic pregnancies due to sex chromosome abnormalities, genital malformation in one fetus, or dizygotic ...

Early this month, Joanna Gaines, co-host of HGTV’s popular Fixer Upper, shared her pregnancy news with the world via a baby bump photo and an ultrasound, both posted to Instagram. The congratulations began pouring in from excited fans. But the conversation took a dark turn when a physician commented that the ultrasound appeared to show that Gaines’s baby might have hydrops fetalis. This is a potentially fatal condition in which abnormal amounts of fluid build up in a developing baby’s body. Tabloids such as TMZ and the Hollywood Reporter ran stories about the potential problem. Not that long ago...

Abstract A 30‐year‐old Chinese woman with irregular vaginal bleeding was admitted to our department. Serum β‐human chorionic gonadotropin (β‐hCG) was moderately elevated, and ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an irregular, retro‐uterine lesion without intrauterine pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy was the primary consideration, with trophoblastic tumor being another possibility. Laparoscopy revealed a 2 × 3 × 3 cm3 irregular, infiltrating, yellow‐white lesion in the left recto‐uterine pouch, which was completely resected without rectal damage. Final pathological/immunohistoch...

Abstract Four chemically similar alkaloids, anabasine, anabaseine, epibatidine and dimethylphenylpiperazinium (DMPP), are potent nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonists of fetal muscle nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in human TE-671 cells. Based on results with these cells, we hypothesized that the alkaloids would completely inhibit ultrasound-monitored fetal movement in a goat model. Different, single doses of anabasine, anabaseine, epibatidine, DMPP, or saline control were administered I.V. to pregnant goats on day 40 of gestation and the number of fetal movements per 5 min sample was measured by ultraso...
