Application of contrast-enhanced ultrasound for scar pregnancy cases misdiagnosed as other diseases

ConclusionCEUS can be used as a supplementary method to diagnose scar pregnancy and evaluate the treatment efficacy, especially in cases with ambiguous results by TVS.

CONCLUSIONS: For true acupuncture versus sham acupuncture we cannot exclude clinically relevant differences in live birth rate, multiple pregnancy rate, ovulation rate, clinical pregnancy rate or miscarriage. Number of intermenstrual days may improve in participants receiving true acupuncture compared to sham acupuncture. True acupuncture probably worsens adverse events compared to sham acupuncture.No studies reported data on live birth rate and multiple pregnancy rate for the other comparisons: physical exercise or no intervention, relaxation and clomiphene. Studies including Diane-35 did not measure fertility outcomes as...

ConclusionOur long-term follow-up data demonstrate that the hysteroscopic correction of dysmorphic uteri may result in a high live birth rate in women suffering from unexplained infertility or repeated miscarriages.

ConclusionsIn this study, 11.8% of MAR pregnancies ended in miscarriage. The majority of pregnancy losses occurred in the first trimester and only 0.8 % of the MAR women had a miscarriage after an ultrasound verification of a viable pregnancy at 11-14 weeks of gestation. The corresponding miscarriage rate among SC women was 0.6 %. After adjustment for maternal characteristics, none of the fertility treatment types were associated with an increased risk of miscarriage compared with SC women.

ConclusionCurettage for miscarriage or undesired pregnancy is not exempt from complications, such as hemorrhage, simple perforation, and infection. Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae and necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.

ConclusionConception and safe, full-term pregnancy is achievable following Lap-RFA of symptomatic fibroids. Additional large, rigorous, multivariate prospective studies that adjust for confounders and report pregnancy outcomes following symptomatic fibroid treatment are needed.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: Direct chromosome preparations of chorionic villus samples (CVS) and cell-free (cf) DNA testing both involve analysis of the trophoblastic cell lineage. We compared the spectrum of rare autosomal trisomies (RATs) detected by these two approaches and assessed the available information on their clinical significance. METHODS: Data from 10 reports on genome-wide cfDNA testing were pooled to determine which chromosomes were most frequently involved and pregnancy outcome information was reviewed. CVS information was drawn from an updated database of 76,102 consecutive CVS analyses where tropho...

CONCLUSIONS: Available evidence from randomised trials suggests that medical treatment with vaginal misoprostol may be an acceptable alternative to surgical evacuation or expectant management. In general, side effects of medical treatment were minor, consisting mainly of nausea and diarrhoea. There were no major differences in effectiveness between different routes of administration. Treatment satisfaction was addressed in only a few studies, in which the majority of women were satisfied with the received intervention. Since the quality of evidence is low or very low for several comparisons, mainly because they included on...

A majority of miscarriages have been thought to be caused by fertile ovum abnormalities; however, our findings suggest that a small uterus can also potentially cause miscarriage. There are no reports on the association between a small uterus and miscarriage. A woman in her late 20s, whose medical history revealed childhood acute lymphocytic leukemia, which progressed to remission after chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and bone marrow transplantation. Ultrasound revealed no ovarian follicles in either of the ovaries and small uterus (length, 32 mm) In cycle 15, after ovum collection, frozen embryos with Veeck ’s classifica...

CONCLUSIONS.—: Pathologic measurements obtained should be compared to expected measurements and correlated with ultrasound findings, clinical information, and microscopic findings. Deviations from expected values could lead to an understanding of early pregnancy loss. PMID: 31173530 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: MRgFUS/MR-HIFU seems to be an interesting minimally invasive alternative for women with UFs who wish to conceive and deliver after the procedure. This method does not increase the rate of spontaneous abortions or pregnancy complications. In our opinion, it is important to take off an unjustified badge stating that MRgFUS/MR-HIFU method is contraindicated in women with UFs who wish to conceive. PMID: 31159642 [PubMed - in process]
