Male Partners of Infertile Couples with Congenital Unilateral Absence of the Vas Deferens are mainly Non ‐Azoospermic
ConclusionsOur results indicate that men with CUAVD mainly display oligozoospermia or normozoospermia and that they were previously fertile. They clearly confirm, first, thatCFTR testing is recommended in CUAVD men and it should be mandatory for those with normal kidneys; and, second, that TRUS is needed for the diagnosis of CUAVD. As CUAVD may be present whatever the sperm count, biological warnings are represented by semen volume and seminal epididymal markers, and clinical warnings by surgical histories of undescended testes or inguinal hernia.

Although alterations of liver enzymes could be a physiological phenomenon, it may also reflect potential severe liver injury, necessitating further assessment and accurate management. The work-up has to consider liver diseases specific of pregnancy and non pregnancy-related liver damage (coincidental and pre-existing to pregnancy).Pre-existing liver diseases during...
We describe the successful use of EUS-FNA in a peritoneal dialysis (PD) patient to evaluate a pancreatic cyst. The patient continued on PD immediately after the procedure without using hemodialysis.

ConclusionsThese survey results suggest that the PLLR format was not known by a majority of prescribers and that the pregnancy letter category format is continuing to be used despite significant flaws in the old system. However, the survey did not address why prescribers were continuing to rely on the pregnancy letter category system. Whether this is due to the PLLR format itself or the lack of quality data to inform the safe use of medications in pregnancy cannot be determined from these survey results. FDA will use these survey results to refine the communication of pregnancy safety information in labeling and will expan...

CONCLUSIONS: As PrEP is scaled up among FSWs, there is growing impetus to consider integrating family planning services with PrEP delivery in order to better meet the diverse SRHR needs of FSWs and to prevent unintended consequences. Programme monitoring combined with research can close data gaps and mobilize adequate resources to deliver comprehensive SRHR services respectful of all women's rights.
