This article presents recommendations of the Polish Psychiatric Association regarding approach to pregnancy loss and unsuccessful in vitro treatment of infertility. From the psychological perspective pregnancy loss and perinatal death are amongst the most stressful events in human life - carrying increased risk of developing affective, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorders. Psychologists, physicians and the rest of the medical staff should provide integrated and individualized care which should be based on respect, empathy and expertise. The necessary phases of support for women experiencing pregnancy loss are: (1) ph...

Developing a model for a signalling pathway requires several iterations of experimentation and model refinement to obtain an accurate model. However, the implementation of such an approach to model a signalling pathway induced by a poorly-known stimulus can become labour intensive because only limited information on the pathway is available beforehand to formulate an initial model. Therefore, a large number of iterations are required since the initial model is likely to be erroneous. In this work, a numerical scheme is proposed to construct a time-varying model for a signalling pathway induced by a poorly-known stimulus wh...

In conclusion, the NMPA criteria with relatively lax thresholds for the parameters, require much more labor to determine the diagnosis, making them unsuitable for clinical practice. Conversely, the DILIN criteria employing stricter thresholds for the parameters were more effective but would miss some positive cases and the cases it identified were usually quite serious, which is not conductive to early intervention. Therefore, we still recommend the use of the RUCAM criteria in clinical practice.

ConclusionsWe investigated an unusual case of severe septated nuchal cystic hygroma associated with bilateral syndactyly of the fingers and toes in a stillborn infant with Turner syndrome. Although cystic hygroma has been frequently reported in 45,X the severity is marked in this case. In addition, syndactyly is not a typical complication of Turner syndrome. This case emphasizes the importance of early ultrasound in pregnancy.

We herein report, to our knowledge, the first case of attempt to treat placenta accreta leaved in situ in human after delivery using RF ablation. The patient was a 35-year-old (gravida two para one) with history of cesarean delivery. Ultrasonography at 32 weeks of gestation showed an anterior placenta not low-lying. Labor was induced at 39 weeks and a female neonate weighing 3 400  g was delivered by vacuum extraction. Placenta delivery was incomplete and attempts for manual removal and uterine revision failed leading to suspicion of partial placenta accreta.

CONCLUSION: A long cervix in the third trimester is not associated with a prolonged first stage of labor. Induction of labor and multiparity were associated with a shorter first stage of labor while hypertension was associated with a longer duration of labor.
