Risk factors for reduced fetal movements in pregnancy: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Maternal perception of reduced fetal movements (RFM) is an important clinical marker to identify women at higher risk of adverse perinatal outcomes. Preventing and reducing stillbirths can only be achieved through better detection and management of women with RFM, however the characteristics of women who present with RFM in pregnancy vary. A systematic review was conducted to explore the risk factors associated with reduced fetal movements (RFM) in pregnancy.PubMed, EMBASE, CINAHL, Maternity and Infant Care, PsycINFO and Science Citation Index were searched, from their inception date, for studies published up to 16th May 2...

Controversial association between polycystic ovary syndrome and breast cancer
This study aims to report a literature review considering epidemiological and molecular mechanisms that correlate PCOS and breast cancer, as well as the influence of PCOS treatment on the incidence of breast cancer.Epidemiological studies failed to adjust potential variables that affect the risk and have thus provided inconclusive results. Molecular effects of androgenic pathways in breast cancer have been studied and androgens seem to have an inhibitory effect on mammary epithelial proliferation.

Adjunctive use of tranexamic acid to tourniquet in reducing haemorrhage during abdominal myomectomy - a randomized controlled trial
Uterine fibroids are the commonest tumour of the female genital tract; about one third are symptomatic and require management. The treatment of uterine fibroids may be medical, surgical, conservative or expectant. Myomectomy is the common surgical treatment option for women failing medical management and desiring to preserve fertility and/or their uterus. The tourniquet is shown to be effective in reducing blood loss during myomectomy and tranexamic to a less extent. However, the adjunctive use of tranexamic acid with tourniquet to further reduce blood loss has not been studied. (Source: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gyn...

Fetal phenotype of Galloway-Mowat syndrome 3 caused by a specific OSGEP variant
Galloway-Mowat syndrome (GAMOS) is an autosomal recessively inherited condition characterized by the association of nephrotic syndrome and central nervous system involvement [1]. The consistent hallmarks are early-onset steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome and microcephaly which is often present at birth. Most patients die in the first years of life. Prenatal diagnosis of GAMOS is rare. We here describe the prenatal sonographic features of a case with GAMOS3, in which the diagnosis was achieved by exome sequencing.

Treatment and outcome of placenta percreta: primary cesarean hysterectomy versus conservative management
Surgical treatment for pregnancy complicated with placenta percreta is associated with high maternal morbidity [1,2]. In an attempt to reduce the surgical morbidity, some surgeons advocate conservative management for placenta percreta [3]. In a review of literature, however, recent findings suggest that the success rate of conservative management for placenta percreta may be lower compared to that of placenta accreta or increta [3,4]. Yet, no previous study has directly compared feto-maternal outcomes of primary cesarean hysterectomy (primary c-hyst) to conservative management for placenta percreta. (Source: European Journ...

The importance of pseudocapsule preservation during hysteroscopic myomectomy
Minimally invasive techniques for myomectomy are based on the rationale of preserving the myometrial integrity, in order to spare muscular and fibro-neurovascular myometrial fibers and ensure complete and bloodless myoma removal. Post-operative myometrial vascularization is crucial in injured muscle regeneration. The post-surgical myometrial healing is needful for uterine reproductive function. Neurotransmitters and neurofibers were analyzed in the myoma pseudocapsule surrounding fibroid. They activate signaling molecule synthesis and release which, in turn, promote cell activation and induce muscle regeneration and growth...
