An Atypical Case of Poland Syndrome with Bilateral Features and Dextroposition of the Heart

We present an atypical case of Poland syndrome in a baby girl with bilateral chest abnormalities, mainly on the left side, and secondary  dextroposition of the heart. As required in almost all cases of Poland syndrome, different imaging modalities were used to evaluate the extent of our patient’s anomalies. Published on 2019-07-11 11:45:50

We hear a lot about the three trimesters of pregnancy. But many women (and even some medical professionals) know little about a newly described and critical time period in women’s lives that desperately needs our attention: the fourth trimester.

Rationale: Pain management is an essential part of good obstetrical care. The rapid onset of pain relief after combined spinal-epidural (CSE) analgesia may cause a transient imbalance in maternal catecholamine level, leading to uterine hyperactivity and fetal heart rate (FHR) abnormalities. How to manage the uterine basal tone and FHR abnormalities after labor analgesia still remains controversial. Patient concerns: A 33-year-old nulliparous woman at 40+5 weeks’ gestation underwent induction of labor after premature rupture of membranes. CSE analgesia was provided when the patient described her pain as the top o...
