Gordijn1* 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands 2Department of Pathology and Medical Biology, University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands Objective: Management of late fetal growth restriction (FGR) is limited to adequate fetal monitoring and optimal timing of delivery. The Disproportionate Intrauterine Growth Intervention Trial At Term (DIGITAT) trial compared induction of labor with expectant management in pregnancies at (near) term complicated by suspected FGR. Findings of the DIGITAT trial were that expectant monitoring prolonged pregnancy for 10 days and increased birth weight with only 130 grams. This resulted in more infants born below the 2.3rd percentile compared to induction of labor, respectively, 12.5% in induction of labor and 30.6% in expectant monitoring group. The main placental lesions associated with FGR are maternal vascular malperfusion, fetal vascular malperfusion, and villitis of unknown etiology. We investigated whether placentas of pregnancies complicate...

CONCLUSION: Breast ultrasound shows a high sensitivity to detect breast cancer during pregnancy. BCP is diagnosed at a higher stage than in nonpregnant women. In our series, patients with BCP had poorer outcomes than the not pregnant group. These results were not observed when adjusting for stage. PMID: 32623975 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The average cure rate with anthelminthic treatment is over 95%. Unfortunately, most treated patients in endemic areas become re-infected within months. Health education, personal hygiene, improved sanitary conditions, proper disposal of human excreta, and discontinuing the use of human fecal matter as a fertilizer are effective long-term preventive measures. Targeting deworming treatment and mass anthelminthic treatment should be considered in regions where A. lumbricoides is prevalent. PMID: 32628606 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Ziemlewicz TJ, Hinshaw JL, Lubner MG, Knott EA, Willey BJ, Lee FT, Brace CL Abstract Purpose: The goal of this study was to compare intra-procedural radiofrequency (RF) and microwave ablation appearance on non-contrast CT (NCCT) and ultrasound to the zone of pathologic necrosis.Materials and methods: Twenty-one 5-min ablations were performed in vivo in swine liver with (1) microwave at 140 W, (2) microwave at 70 W, or (3) RF at 200 W (n = 7 each). CT and US images were obtained simultaneously at 1, 3, and 5 min during ablation and 2, 5, and 10 min post-...
