Efficacy of methotrexate treatment in extrauterine pregnancies and beta-human chorionic gonadotropin levels
Introduction: Extrauterine pregnancy incidence have increased steadily during the years. The last decades also marked a swift in the approach of managing extrauterine pregnancies, with surgery no longer being the modality of choice. Medical management with methotrexate is now one of the most popular protocols, with success rates reported up to 95%. (Source: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology)

Outcomes of monochorionic twins with twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence: interstitial laser versus cord occlusion
Twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence (TRAP) is a rare complication of monochorionic twins (MC) which occurs in 1 per 35000 deliveries. Our study aimed to describe outcomes of MC twin pregnancies complicated by TRAP sequence treated with interstitial laser versus cord occlusion.

Placental proteome in late-onset of fetal growth restriction (late FGR)
Fetal growth restriction (FGR) occurs when the fetus does not reach its genetically programmed intrauterine potential for growth and affects ∼5-10% of pregnancies. This condition is one of the leading causes of perinatal mortality and morbidity associated with obstetric and neonatal complications. Placental dysfunction in FGR causes an impairment in the transfer of nutrients and oxygen from the mother to the developing fetus. Maternal adaptations to placental insufficiency may also play a role in the pathophysiology of FGR. (Source: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology)

Does overweight and obesity have an impact on delivery mode and peripartum outcome in breech presentation? A FRABAT prospective cohort study
Introduction and aims of the study: 4% of all fetuses are in breech presentation at term. Although the optimal mode of delivery remains controversially discussed many patients can be offered a safe vaginal delivery with favorable maternal and fetal outcome. A maternal body mass index (BMI) within the normal range is proposed as an identification criterion for suitable patients. Since a substantial proportion of women expecting a breech fetus is overweight/obese clinical evidence is needed to counsel these patients properly regarding safe and successful delivery options.

Maternal thyroid function and free beta human chorionic gonadotrophin level in triploid pregnancies of paternal origin
Introduction and objectives of the study: Triploidy is a frequent life-limiting genetic defect resulting from an extra haploid set of chromosomes. The course of pregnancy is affected by the parental origin of these extra chromosomes. Paternal triploidy is associated with a cystic appearance of placenta and high levels of maternal serum human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). As hCG unit can bind to the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor, TSH levels are usually below normal values raising suspicion of hyperthyroidism.

The metabolic syndrome and urinary incontinence in Maltese women
Introduction and aims of the study: Urinary incontinence (UI) is a common and complex medical condition affecting women of all ages with various degrees of physical and emotional distress, thus affecting their overall quality of life (QoL). The metabolic syndrome (MetS) has been postulated to contribute, or even exacerbate, the symptomatology of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). It is hypothesised that factors contributing to the development of the MetS are common in Maltese women attending the urodynamic clinic.

Introduction: Placental site trophoblastic tumour is a rare type of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) that evolves from unrestricted proliferation of intermediate trophoblasts at placental implantation site. Its incidence is approximately 1 per 100,000 pregnancies. Together with epithelioid trophoblastic tumour they make up only 1-2% of all GTNs.
