Cantharidin is Superior to Trichloroacetic Acid for the Treatment of Non-mucosal Genital Warts: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial.
Authors: Recanati MA, Kramer KJ, Maggio JJ, Chao CR Abstract Condyloma Acuminatum is a sexually transmitted viral disease caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is the most common viral sexually transmitted disease. In this randomized controlled trial, cantharidin was found to be more effective and better tolerated than trichloroacetic acid for the treatment of these lesions. Patients treated with cantharidin healed with less scarring than those treated with TCA (P

Horner's syndrome and epidural anesthesia in labor and cesarean section.
Authors: Vogiatzaki T, Tsikouras P, Tsoleridis T, Bachar M, Christofis C, Liberis A, Galazios G Abstract Homer's syndrome (HS) is based on dysfunction of symphathetic nervous system at the cervical canal. The signs of the syndrome occur on the same side as the lesion of the sympathetic trunk and include: a constricted pupil, a weak-droopy eyelid, apparent decreased sweating, and with or without inset eyeball. HS has been observed as a rare complication of epidural anaesthesia in obstetrics during labour or cesarean section. In parturients, it warrants further investigation as other serious causes must be excluded, ...

A second case of successful conception in a natural cycle despite a maximum endometrial thickness in the follicular phase of four mm.
CONCLUSIONS: Reporting a successful second case makes it less likely that the first case was a miracle. The odds are that there have been other pregnancies with four-mm endometrial thickness in natural cycles,without follicle maturing drugs that have either not been reported, or more likely, not evaluated.

CONCLUSION: Two-step method of shoulder delivery had a lower rate of shoulder dystocia than one-step method, no increasing of neonatal asphyxia and postpartum bleeding. The longer interval of head to shoulder did not relate to shoulder dystocia and asphyxia. The normal value of head to shoulder interval might be longer than 60 seconds.

IVIg therapy increases delivery birthweight in babies born to women with elevated preconception proportion of peripheral blood (CD56+/CD3-) natural killer cells.
CONCLUSION: In women with elevated preconception peripheral NK cells, mean birthweight at delivery is low without IVIg therapy ±2,654 ± 627 grams) but significantly improved with IVIg therapy ±3,267 ± 373 grams). In high risk wom without preconception NK cell elevation, mean birthweight at delivery is not further-increased with IVIg therapy ±3,202 ± 357 grams with IVIg vs.±3,129 ± 527 grams without IVIg).

At 24 weeks, sudden fetal death occurred, but bleeding continued and transvaginal sonography revealed abundant periplacental blood flow in the uterine wall. To avoid cesarean section, the authors performed uterine artery embolization (UAE) be- fore vaginal delivery of the fetus. Subsequently, there was little bleeding when laminaria was inserted for cervical ripening and the fetus was delivered vaginally by us...
