Live ectopic gestation

Imagingof live ectopic pregnancyEctopic pregnancy is a common finding with the use of ultrasound imaging. However it is still rare to find a live ectopic gestation. In this case the left fallopian tube shows an embryo with cardiac activity recorded on spectral Doppler.The above link shows images and description of the case which was later confirmed on surgery.

Authors: Bartels HC, Geraghty AA, O'Brien EC, Kranidi A, Mehegan J, Yelverton C, McDonnell CM, McAuliffe FM Abstract Background: The growth of the fetus is a complex process influenced by multiple factors. Studies have highlighted the important role of biochemical growth markers such as leptin and adiponectin on fetal growth. Objective: To compare fetal growth trajectories with biochemical growth markers from maternal blood samples at 28 weeks' gestation, cord blood samples at birth, and in child blood samples at 5 years of age from mother-infant pairs who were part of the longitudinal ROLO study. Methods: ...

CONCLUSIONS: We propose a simple clinical prediction model with good discriminative performance to predict short-term and longer term PE-related complications. Its usefulness in clinical practice awaits further investigation and external validation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To report feasibility and impact of establishing a regional prenatal referral network on perinatal outcomes of fetuses with transposition of great arteries with intact ventricular septum(TGA-IVS) in a low-resource setting. METHODS: Retrospective study (January 2011 to December 2019). A regional network for prenatal diagnosis and referral was initiated in 2011. Consecutive fetuses with diagnosis of TGA-IVS included. Pregnancy and early neonatal outcomes were reported. Impact of timing of diagnosis (prenatal or after birth) on age at surgery, mortality and post-operative recovery were compar...

We present the largest Western case series of this modality in pregnancy and a review of the literature.Four pregnant adult patients were referred to our tertiary center with suspected or documented choledocholithiasis and underwent real-time TA US-guided ERCP. US was successfully used to confirm positioning of the guidewire and ductal clearance. Procedures were successful in all patients with resolution of clinical symptoms and no immediate procedural complications. Two patients suffered adverse events later in their pregnancy.Real-time TA US-guided ERCP is a technically feasible and effective modality that can be offered...

CONCLUSION: In absence of guidelines for GPHPT management, its treatment should be individualized. In our case, despite high calcium levels, a conservative treatment with strict monitoring led to positive outcome of pregnancy. PMID: 33030137 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Recker F, Weber E, Strizek B, Gembruch U, Seibel A Abstract In the current coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, certain patients are becoming seriously ill. Lung pathologies are common, and some patients even go on to develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which requires intubation and artificial respiration of the critically ill patient. Imaging of the lung is absolutely necessary to obtain a diagnosis, assess the course of disease and for treatment. Particularly in gynecology and obstetrics (OBGYN), ultrasound scans of the lung can be a useful additional tool when caring for pregnant patients in...

Authors: Schlembach D Abstract Fetal or intrauterine growth restriction (FGR/IUGR) affects approximately 5 - 8% of all pregnancies and refers to a fetus not exploiting its genetically determined growth potential. Not only a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality, it also predisposes these fetuses to the development of chronic disorders in later life. Apart from the timely diagnosis and identification of the causes of FGR, the obstetric challenge primarily entails continued antenatal management with optimum timing of delivery. In order to minimise premature birth morbidity, intensive fetal monitoring a...

AbstractPurposePreeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy complication of abnormally elevated blood pressure and organ damage where endothelial function is impaired. Wall shear stress (WSS) strongly effects endothelial cell morphology and function but in PE the WSS values are unknown. WSS calculations from ultrasound inaccurately assume cylindrical arteries and patient specific computational fluid dynamics (CFD) typically require time-consuming 3D imaging such as CT or MRI.MethodsTwo-dimensional (2D) B-mode ultrasound images were lofted together to create simplified three-dimensional (3D) geometries of the brachial artery (BA) that ...
