Authors: Taylor CR, Dominguez JE, Habib AS Abstract Obesity is a significant global health problem. It results in a higher incidence of complications for pregnant women and their neonates. Cesarean deliveries are more common in obese parturients as well. The increased burden of comorbidities seen in this population, such as obstructive sleep apnea, necessitates antepartum anesthetic consultation. These patients pose unique challenges for the practicing anesthesiologist and may benefit from optimization prior to delivery. Complications from anesthesia and overall morbidity and mortality are higher in this population...
Is sildenafil a safe and effective treatment option for preeclampsia in pregnancy? A new review examines the evidence.Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation
We examined 151 patients (GTG n=71; CONV n =80). The success rate was higher with the GTG compared to the conventional method (69/71 (97%) vs. 61/80 (76%); P
CONCLUSIONSHigh pregnancy rates among girls with histories of CSE suggest the importance of applying a reproductive justice approach to deliver reproductive education, family planning services, pre-natal care, and parenting support to girls impacted by CSE.
Conclusion: Specific OCD symptom subtypes may be associated with some psychological processes involved in sexual response. Sexual well-being should be carefully evaluated by practitioners and should be regarded as a treatment target. Future studies should investigate more comprehensively the processes involved in sexuality. PMID: 31819761 [PubMed]
ConclusionsManagement of delivery in cases of suspected autosomal recessive renal polycystic kidney disease needs to be discussed because of the risk of abdominal dystocia. The route and timing of delivery depend on the size of the fetal abdominal circumference and the gestational age. The rate of kidney growth must also be taken into account.
AbstractPreeclampsia (PE) is the most threatening pathology of human pregnancy. Its development is thought to be due to a failure in the invasion of trophoblast cells that establish the feto-maternal circulation. Protein kinase CK2 is a ubiquitous enzyme reported to be involved in the control of cell invasion. CK2 consists of two subunits, a catalytic subunit, CK2 α, and a regulatory subunit, CK2β. To date, no data exist regarding the expression and role of this enzyme in normal and PE pregnancies. We performed studies, at the clinical level using distinctive cohorts from early pregnancy (n = 24) a...
