T lymphocytes in the third trimester decidua in preeclampsia. Hypertens Pregnancy. 2019 Feb 11;:1-6 Authors: Milosevic-Stevanovic J, Krstic M, Stefanovic M, Zivadinovic R, Vukomanovic P, Trajkovic-Dinic SP, Stojnev S Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of study was to conduct immunohistochemical quantification of CD3+ and CD8+ decidual lymphocytes in preeclampsia. METHODS: A study group included 30 cases of preeclampsia and a control group included 20 healthy pregnant women, all delivered by Cesarean section. Samples of placental bed were analyzed after immunohistochemical staining of CD45+, CD3+ and CD8+ cells. RESULTS: The group with preeclampsia included a significantly higher number of CD3+ (p

CONCLUSIONS: Due to extreme rarity of pheochromocytoma in pregnancy, its impact on the mother and the fetus remains poorly understood. Official guidelines for treatment are not established, which, combined with the complex nature of the disease itself, demands a multidisciplinary and individualized approach.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The Hypertension and Preeclampsia Intervention Trial At near Term-I (HYPITAT-I) randomized controlled trial showed that, in women with gestational hypertension or mild pre-eclampsia at term, induction of labor, compared with expectant management, was associated with improved maternal outcome without compromising neonatal outcome. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the impact of these findings on obstetric management and maternal and perinatal outcomes in The Netherlands. METHODS: We retrieved data for the period 2000-2014 from the Dutch National Perinatal Registry, including 143&...

CONCLUSIONS The length of hospital stay of women is higher among those belonging to the age group ranging from 15 to 17 years old and for those aged 45 years old or more. The presence of associated comorbidities, such as eclampsia, pre-existing hypertensive disorder with superimposed proteinuria and gestational hypertension (induced by pregnancy) with significant proteinuria increase the length of hospital stay. This study enabled the construction of distinct criticality level profiles based on the combination of age groups and the main comorbidities, which were directly related to the length of hospital stay.RESUMO OBJETI...

This study explored the appropriate classification of pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) in women of childbearing age in Beijing, China. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Women with singleton pregnancies at more than 28 gestational weeks were retrospectively reviewed. Based on the pre-pregnancy BMI (kg/m2), these patients were divided into 7 groups: =18.5-22.9,>=23-23.9,>=24-24.9,>=25-27.9,>=28-29.9, and>=30. Pregnancy adverse outcomes, including gestational hypertension with or without preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, initial cesarean section, postpartum hemorrhage, macrosomia, large-for-gestation...

ConclusionsIVF-OD patients should be considered an independent risk factor for some adverse perinatal outcomes, mainly hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, preeclampsia, and severe preeclampsia. Immunological and hormonal aspects may be involved in these results, and further research focusing in the etiopathogenesis of these pathologies are needed.

Abstract Objective To assess maternal and perinatal outcomes in pregnancies after kidney transplantation in a tertiary center in Brazil. Methods Retrospective cohort of pregnancies in women with kidney transplantation at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, from January 1995 until December 2017. Medical charts were reviewed, andmaternal and perinatal outcomes were described as means and frequencies. Renal function and blood pressure were evaluated during pregnancy and postpartum. Results A total of 22 women had at least 1 pregnancy during the considered timeinterval, and 3 of them had> 1 pregnancy, totalizing 25 pregn...

Rationale: Twin pregnancy in women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is very rare but poses a great risk to both mother and children. In developing countries like China, advanced CKD twin pregnancies are often terminated. Here, we report a successful case and reviewed related cases, hope to facilitate further study. Patient concerns: A 29-year-old woman with a twin pregnancy showed serum creatinine (Scr) 100 μmol/L (CKD2) at conception. During her 12th week, Scr reached 263 μmol/L (CKD4) with urine protein 3+ and hypertension. Diagnoses: Due to her pregnancy, renal biopsy was not considered. Lab tests sho...

Tomas’s mom developed pre-eclampsia, a hypertension disorder sometimes developed during pregnancy which can cause serious health risks for both mom and baby, during her fifth month of pregnancy. This high blood pressure pregnancy complication affects kidney and liver function and when left untreated, can lead to blood clotting failure, fluid buildup in the lungs, seizures and in severe cases, death. With this diagnosis, Tomas’s mom was put on immediate bed rest to try and relieve her pre-eclampsia symptoms. Just when she was feeling some relief, Tomas’s mom received the unfortunate news that her baby&rsqu...

ConclusionsAlthough several clinical characteristics of preeclampsia were similar between hospitals, the rates of cesarean section were higher in China. Provider knowledge was most lacking in areas about diagnostic criteria and medication use for preeclampsia. Future studies are needed to explore these differences.
