Objective To determine the mRNA and protein expression of opsin in human amniotic mesenchymal stem cells. MethodsHuman amnion was harvested in normal cesarean section. The amnion pieces were subjected to 0.25% trypsin for digestion to remove epithelial cells. The tissue pieces were then placed in PBS containing collagenase IV (0.75 mg/mL) and DNase I (0.075 mg/mL) and incubated at 37 °C for 60 minutes. The collected cells were cultured in DMEM/F12 medium containing 5% helios. Flow cytometry and cell-induced differentiation protocols were used to identify hAMSCs.

ConclusionOptimal management and correction of subglottic stenosis is possible via laryngotracheal reconstruction with cartilage graft. The reconstruction procedure, first utilized in the 1970’s, allows correction of severe (grades III and IV) subglottic stenosis.

Our aim was to study the outcome of labor in nulliparous women ≥40 years, compared with women 25‐29 years, after both spontaneous onset and induction of labor.Material and methodsThe nationwide population ‐based Swedish Medical Birth Register was used to study the perinatal outcome in nulliparous women with a singleton, term (gestational weeks 37‐44), live fetus in cephalic presentation and a planned vaginal delivery from 1992 to 2011. We included 7796 nulliparous women ≥40 years and 264 262 nu...

BOSTON (CBS) — A new study from the University of Cambridge finds late pregnancy ultrasounds could prevent many emergency C-sections and even prevent some infant deaths. In 3-4% of pregnancies, babies fail to flip head down, leading to what’s called a breech presentation. Trying to deliver a baby feet or buttocks first can lead to serious complications for the baby, including death. But sometimes it’s not known that a baby is breech until delivery. At 36 weeks, it is still possible for a doctor to try to coax the baby head down by applying pressure to the abdomen, and if that doesn’t work, a routine...

Extra-ovarian neoplasms incidentally discovered during cesarean section are very rare. Here we report a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor found during cesarean section of a 30-year-old, full-term woman, forming a mass in her cul-de-sac. Histology revealed an extensively decidualized spindle cell process, positive for anaplastic large cell lymphoma kinase (ALK) through immunohistochemistry and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first presentation of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in this location without concurrent intrauterine component, that additionally demons...
