Risk factors associated with fetal pleural effusion in prenatal diagnosis: a retrospective study in a single institute in Southern China.

In conclusion, fetal pleural effusion has a close correlation with chromosomal abnormality. CMA may increase the detection rate of chromosomal aberrations, especially for micro-deletion or micro-duplication syndromes. In the South of China, Thalassemia must be considered when a fetal pleural effusion is detected.Impact statementWhat is already known on this subject? The aetiology of fetal pleural effusion includes a chromosomal abnormality, a congenital heart disease, congenital infections and a number of genetic syndromes.What do the results of this study add? This is the first retrospective study to analyse the aetiology of fetal pleural effusion in one institute in the South of China.What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Besides the chromosomal abnormality, micro-deletion and micro-duplication syndromes were also detected in our study. We feel that thalassemia must be considered when fetal pleural effusion is detected in South China. PMID: 31809620 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Herein, we report a powerful puffing method to fabricate hierarchical porous N-doped carbon with numerous embedded Ni nanoparticles. Interestingly, during the puffing and annealing process, rice precursor with N and Ni sources can be in-situ converted into Ni-embedded N-doped porous carbon (N-PC/Ni) composite. The obtained N-PC/Ni composite possesses ...
