Successful Pregnancy Outcome after Coiling of Ruptured Intracranial Aneurysm.
We report a pregnant woman who suffered from SAH due to rupture of posterior cerebral artery aneurysm in third trimester. Endovascular coiling with Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) followed by caesarean section done. She required coiling twice in pregnancy. PMID: 31304719 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Wan Ab Rahman WS, Abdullah WZ, Husin A, Nik Mohd Hassan NFF, Hassan MN, Zulkafli Z Abstract INTRODUCTION: Acquired haemophilia A (AHA) is a rare acquired bleeding disorder caused by polyclonal immunoglobulin G autoantibodies against clotting factor VIII (FVIII). The incidence was reported to be rare occurring in 0.2- 4 cases/million/year. Patients may present with different clinical manifestations to various specialties. Early recognition of the disease contributes to favourable clinical outcome. CASE SERIES: Here, we reported five cases of this disorder with different clinical presentations from two t...

We report a case of splenic trauma during the third trimester of pregnancy that was successfully treated by arterial embolization with preservation of the spleen. This rarely reported management strategy during pregnancy had a favorable outcome. Such a strategy should be discussed and considered, taking into account maternal, obstetrical and fetal factors.
Abstract Agreement between estimated fibrinogen concentration via thromboelastography and traditional assays is not established in the parturient. We therefore recruited 56 parturients and performed Clauss and functional fibrinogen level (FLEV) tests. Mean difference of measurements was 36.8 mg/dL (95% CI, 21.8-51.9) with a standard deviation of 52.8 mg/dL. Calculated limits of agreement were 140.2 mg/dL (95% CI, 166.3-114.6) and -66.6 mg/dL (95% CI, -40.8 to -92.5), within the maximum allowable difference of 165 mg/dL. We therefore conclude that while most measurements fell within the limits of agreement, more wo...

Scores of children born through artificial insemination have learned from DNA tests that their biological fathers were the doctors who performed the procedure.
Introduction: Psoriasis (PSO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) often affect women of childbearing age; but it is unclear if these women ( ♀) feel able to make informed treatment decisions around pregnancy and breastfeeding. This survey gained insight on disease management and pregnancy, to assess if they feel adequately supported. Methods: Women (18–45 years) with chronic inflammatory diseases from the US, Japan, and Germany, Fran ce, UK, Italy and Spain (EU5) participated in a 20-min online survey (Jul–Oct 2017; InSites Consulting).
The objective of this descriptive study was to examine the unmet clinical needs of psoriasis (PSO) patients during their pregnancy journey.
This study aims to provide a critical analysis of the available evidence to evaluate the effectiveness of the current risk management programs.
Introduction: Several dermatoses can present during pregnancy. Pemphigoid gestationis, also known as herpes gestationis or gestational pemphigoid, is a rare, pruritic, vesiculobullous eruption that often occurs during the third trimester or postpartum period of pregnancy.
