Effectiveness, complications and reproductive outcome of selective chemoembolization with methotrexate followed by suction curettage for caesarean scar pregnancy - a prospective observational study

ConclusionSCEM followed by SC appears to be an effective treatment option for CSP. The method seems to be safe in short-term follow-up. However, complications were observed in long-term follow-up. Therefore, patients should be informed about the risk of complications interfering with future fertility, such as intrauterine adhesions and/or amenorrhea.

Hysterectomy is effective but has more complications than endometrial ablation, which is less invasive but ultimately leads to hysterectomy in 20% of women. We compared laparoscop...

Trujillo, Krissa GlaubiusAbstractThe main advantage of the direct oral anticoagulants over vitamin K antagonists is reduced rates of major bleeding, especially intracranial hemorrhage. While use of different clotting factor supplements have been used in patients with direct oral anticoagulant induced major bleeding or when there is need for urgent surgery, the lack of preclinical and clinical data are concerning. Idarucizumab is a specific antibody developed with a 350-fold greater a...

Every year, tens thousands of men in the United States are diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer. Most are told that they don ’t need treatment other than “active surveillance” to monitor their slow-growing tumors. Now, UCLA physicians have shown that the best way to proceed with this is by starting out with an MRI-guided prostate biopsy.In the past, doctors relied on ultrasound to guide a biopsy needle into the prostate. However, ultrasound doesn ’t allow the visualization of prostate tumors, so a biopsy may have missed a tumor. Over the past decade, it’s become possible to instead perform ...

However, synthesizing the biocompatible theranostic agents with enhanced merits in imaging and therapy via a facile and green way is still highly challenged. Here, we report a novel theranostic agent based on colloidal polydopamine/Au (PDA/Au) hollow spheres, which are synthesized with combined use of P...

ConclusionPregnancies obtained after oocyte donation delivering after 24  weeks had a higher risk of early-onset PE requiring delivery before 34 weeks of gestation, than the general population. The risk is directly correlated with the increase of maternal age and is also higher in twin pregnancies.

Conclusions:Because the nightmare frequencies were very stable, it would be desirable to carry out intervention studies treating nightmares as early as possible—even in childhood—and study whether nightmare occurrence is lower even years after the intervention.Citation:Schredl M, Gilles M, Wolf I, Peus V, Scharnholz B, Sütterlin M, Bardtke S, Send TS, Samaras A, Deuschle M.

Three parameters of extraction were investigated: amplitude level (41, 102. 5 and 164 μm), extraction time (2, 4 and 6 min) and solvent volume (2, 4 and 6 mL). All parameters had a significant effect on the extraction (p
