We present a report of a 29-year-old woman with non-dipper type refractory hypertension due to the vascular compression of the medulla oblongata. The patient was diagnosed with hypertension at 17 years of age and underwent emergency Caesarean section at 26 weeks of gestation during 2 pregnancies due to severe high blood pressure. We suspected medullary compression by the curved posterior inferior cerebellar artery as the cause of her intractable hypertension, and she underwent Jannetta's decompression surgery. After the surgery, her blood pressure swiftly decreased to almost within the normal range, and her blood pressure ...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Journal of Sport and Health ScienceAuthor(s): Xin Luan, Xiangyang Tian, Haixin Zhang, Rui Huang, Na Li, Peijie Chen, Ru WangAbstractA growing understanding of the benefits of exercise over the past few decades has prompted researchers to take an interest in the possibilities of exercise therapy. Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

Conclusion(s)There is a higher incidence of cardiac arrest in pregnancy compared to both previous estimates in the Netherlands and recently established figures in the United Kingdom. Main causes of maternal cardiac arrest are potentially preventable and/or treatable complications of pregnancy. Insufficient use of critical elements of obstetric resuscitation identifies the need for enhanced obstetric emergency training for obstetric and non-obstetric first responders.

Authors: Chanson P, Vialon M, Caron P Abstract INTRODUCTION: As pregnancy is rare in women with acromegaly, only case reports and few series have been published. Areas covered: All case reports and publications dealing with pregnancy in patients with acromegaly were collated. Information concerning the effects of acromegaly on pregnancy outcomes, the impact of pregnancy on GH/IGF-I measurements, acromegaly comorbidity and pituitary adenoma size, the effects of treatment of acromegaly on fetus outcomes were retrieved and analyzed. Expert commentary: Based on the small number of reported cases, pregnancy is generally...

We present a case series of 17 pregnancies in 12 women with acromegaly. 12 women with acromegaly who completed pregnancy were identified from centres involved in the Irish Pituitary Study. 11 women had pituitary macroadenomas, one woman had a microadenoma. Only 5/17 pregnancies had optimal biochemical control of acromegaly pre-conception, as defined by IGF-1 concentration in the age related reference level and plasma GH concentration of
