The relationship between maternal characteristics and carotid intima-media thickness using an automated ultrasound technique.

Conclusion: In healthy pregnancy, we reported CIMT was related to BMI and maternal age but not parity or gestational age. PMID: 31535936 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: ACUTE ABDOMEN sonographic approach in acute abdomen can play an important role in ruling out critical diagnosis, and can guide emergency physician or any critical care physician in patient management. PMID: 31544223 [PubMed]

Abstract BACKGROUND: The traditional definition of preeclampsia (PE) is based on the development of hypertension and proteinuria. This has recently been revised to include cases without proteinuria but with evidence of renal, hepatic or hematological dysfunction. OBJECTIVE: To examine the impact of the new definition of PE on first, the incidence and severity of the disease, and second, the performance of the competing risks model for first-trimester assessment of risk for PE. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of 66,964 singleton pregnancies that were classified as PE, gestational hypertension (GH)...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the association of first-trimester subchorionic hematomas with pregnancy outcomes after 20 weeks of gestation in women with singleton pregnancies. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all women with singleton pregnancies presenting for prenatal care before 14 weeks of gestation over a 3-year period at a single obstetric practice. All patients underwent routine first-trimester ultrasound examinations. We compared rates of adverse pregnancy outcomes at more than 20 weeks of gestation in women with and without a subchorionic hematoma on the initial ultrasound examin...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The Hypertension and Preeclampsia Intervention Trial At near Term-I (HYPITAT-I) randomized controlled trial showed that, in women with gestational hypertension or mild pre-eclampsia at term, induction of labor, compared with expectant management, was associated with improved maternal outcome without compromising neonatal outcome. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the impact of these findings on obstetric management and maternal and perinatal outcomes in The Netherlands. METHODS: We retrieved data for the period 2000-2014 from the Dutch National Perinatal Registry, including 143&...

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 ...

Rationale: Twin pregnancy in women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is very rare but poses a great risk to both mother and children. In developing countries like China, advanced CKD twin pregnancies are often terminated. Here, we report a successful case and reviewed related cases, hope to facilitate further study. Patient concerns: A 29-year-old woman with a twin pregnancy showed serum creatinine (Scr) 100 μmol/L (CKD2) at conception. During her 12th week, Scr reached 263 μmol/L (CKD4) with urine protein 3+ and hypertension. Diagnoses: Due to her pregnancy, renal biopsy was not considered. Lab tests sho...

(Wiley) Pre-eclampsia is a potentially dangerous condition characterized by high blood pressure that arises in some pregnant women, but a review of published studies in Australasian Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine indicates that its effects on cardiovascular health can persist well after pregnancy.

The objectives were to examine pregnancy outcomes in adolescent primigravida and to determine the effects of adolescent pregnancy on pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). A retrospective analysis of pregnancy outcomes was carried out in 2440 adolescent primigravida, compared with 14,259 primigravida aged 20-29 years. The adolescents had significantly higher rates of maternal death, maternal heart disease, PIH, puerperal infection, chorioamnionitis, urinary tract infection, foetal anomaly, preterm delivery, low birth weight, low Apgar scores and stillbirth. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that both old...

CONCLUSIONS: Single umbilical artery was strongly associated with gastro intestinal atresia, suggesting common developmental mechanisms. The increased risk of recurrence of single umbilical artery and malformations suggests that genetic and or persisting environmental factors influence the risks. We found that SUA had an equally strong association to trisomy 13 and 18. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. PMID: 31132166 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
