Abstract Background: Historically, Iceland has been an iodine-sufficient nation due to notably high fish and milk consumption. Recent data suggest that the intake of these important dietary sources of iodine has decreased considerably. Objective: To evaluate the iodine status of pregnant women in Iceland and to determine dietary factors associated with risk for deficiency. Methods: Subjects were women (n = 983; 73% of the eligible sample) attending their first ultrasound appointment in gestational weeks 11-14 in the period October 2017-March 2018. Spot urine samples were collected for assessment of urina...
Researchers at the University of Bristol compared 23 published studies on drinking during pregnancy and found evidence it can also lead to lower birth weight.
Conclusions: CEUS offers good diagnostic performance, and the peak intensity ratio of caesarean scar to myometrium can be used as a quantitative index to diagnose CSP accurately.
DiscussionThe results of our study indicate that serious maternal morbidity increases with increasing numbers of previous cesarean sections. Women planning large families should consider the risks of repeat cesarean sections when contemplating elective primary cesarean delivery or attempted vaginal birth after one previous cesarean section.

Authors: Okan Cakir M, Kirca O, Gunduz S, Ozdogan M Abstract Infections in immunocompromised-neoplastic patients represent a severe complication.

Although enterococci have been considered more commonly as colonization bacteria in the intestine than virulent agents, they are frequently implicated in UTIs. The high incidence of ...
