Technique allows dolphin pregnancy exams to mirror those in humans
(National Marine Mammal Foundation) In a groundbreaking study just published in Veterinary Radiology&Ultrasound, scientists have developed a new ultrasound technique for evaluating dolphin fetuses at all stages of gestation.
Conclusion: Accurate dating of pregnancy and systematic follow-up integrating radiology imaging and obstetrics care for appropriate risk-based management of pregnant women can significantly improve perinatal statistics of India.
Conclusion: HIFU showed a safe and effective profile as a therapeutic management option for patients with adenomyosis. In comparison with LE, HIFU treatment achieved better postoperative reproductive outcomes. HIFU treatment should be encouraged and implemented in clinical practice.

AJP Rep 2020; 10: e113-e117 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1709186Detailed clinical and pathological features of placental mesenchymal dysplasia (PMD) complicated by preeclampsia (PE) are unknown. A 39-year-old nulliparous woman was referred at 19 weeks gestation. Ultrasound examination identified a fetus with severe growth restriction (−2.8 SD) and a markedly thickened placenta with many cystic structures suggestive of PMD. At 21 weeks, the patient developed severe hypertension (180/95 mm Hg) with marked proteinuria and an elevated serum soluble fms-like tyrosine-kinase-1 (sFlt-1) level (47,000 pg/L). The pregnancy was ...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study is to assess the effect of the endometrial thickness and embryo quality on the implantation potential in natural cycle IVF (NC-IVF).MethodsA retrospective single-center study was performed on 552 single embryo transfers after NC-IVF. The ‘quality' of the embryos was evaluated trough the number and regularity of blastomeres, degree of fragmentation, and nuclear content of cells. Endometrial thickness was measured in millimeters with transvaginal ultrasound on the day of hCG application.ResultsOur findings showed a statistically significant difference in successful implantation unti...
ConclusionsThe FMF angle is smaller in second and third trimester fetuses with open spina bifida. However, the difference is not large enough to implement this marker in current screening programs.

CONCLUSIONS: The fetal cerebral vascular response to MH varies based on underlying CHD diagnosis, suggesting that cardiovascular physiology may influence autoregulatory capacities of the fetal brain. Further studies are needed to determine clinical implications of these findings on long-term neurodevelopment in these at-risk children. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
