Serum Uric Acid Measurement in Women With Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy.

Serum Uric Acid Measurement in Women With Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy. Obstet Gynecol. 2019 Aug 07;: Authors: Chescheir NC Abstract A 27-year-old asymptomatic primigravid woman at 36 weeks of gestation is evaluated in the labor and delivery unit with new-onset hypertension of 145/92 mm Hg (with similar measurements 4 hours apart). A spot urine protein/creatinine ratio is 0.35, serum transaminases and creatinine level are normal, and uric acid is 6.0 mg/dL (upper limit of normal for adult woman is 6.0 mg/dL but typically 4-5 mg/dL in the third trimester). Antenatal fetal testing and growth on ultrasound scan are reassuring. She is discharged for home management and ultimately delivered at 37 weeks of gestation for preeclampsia without severe features.

This study aimed to compare the effect of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) with moderate-intensity continuous training (MCT) on endothelial function, oxidative stress and clinical fitness in patients with type 1 diabetes. Thirty-six type 1 diabetic patients (mean age 23.5 ± 6 years) were randomized into 3 groups: HIIT, MCT, and a non-exercising group (CON). Exercise was performed in a stationary cycle ergometers during 40 min, 3 times/week, for 8 weeks at 50–85% maximal heart rate (HRmax) in HIIT and 50% HRmax in MCT. Endothelial function was measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD) [endothelium-depende...

Discussion Intrauterine growth retardation or fetal growth retardation is due to a pathological process that causes decelerated fetal growth velocity. Small-for-gestational age (SGA) is an infant with growth parameters below the normal range for gestational age. More commonly, SGA is defined as a birth weight

CONCLUSION: Pregnant women with NAFLD have increased risk for GDM, pre-eclampsia, hypertension, hyperuricemia, increasing total cholesterol and triglycerides and should be carefully monitored during antenatal care.b. PMID: 29943682 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This multicenter study includes 53 pregnancies, of which 37 with pregestat...

Management of pregnancies after combined screening for pre-eclampsia at 19-24 weeks' gestation. Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol. 2018 Jun 25;: Authors: Litwinska M, Syngelaki A, Wright A, Wright D, Nicolaides KH Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate the patient-specific risk of pre-eclampsia (PE) at 19-24 weeks' gestation by maternal factors and combinations of mean arterial pressure (MAP), uterine artery pulsatility index (UtA-PI), serum placental growth factor (PlGF) and serum soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1). On the basis of the risk of PE, the women would be stratified into high-, int...

FINDINGSUCLA scientists have developed anew way to use magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to scan the placenta. The noninvasive approach offers valuable insights into how the mother ’s blood enters the placenta and sustains the fetus with oxygen and nutrients during early pregnancy. The technique breaks new ground because most previous studies on this subject occurred in the laboratory after childbirth.BACKGROUNDThe placenta is a temporary organ that joins a pregnant woman to her baby through the umbilical cord. Few methods exist for safely and accurately studying the placenta in early pregnancy. Ultrasound indirect...

ABSTRACT ObjectivesTo evaluate whether the magnitude of change in the cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) after 30 weeks' gestation is a better predictor of adverse pregnancy outcome compared with a single CPR measurement at 35–37 weeks. A secondary aim was to evaluate whether the utility of CPR at 35–37 weeks was enhanced after adjusting for change in gestational age. MethodsThis was a retrospective cohort study of women who had at least two ultrasound scans between 30 and 37 weeks' gestation, with the final scan at 35–37 weeks. Exclusion criteria were major congenital abnorma...
