Neurodevelopment at age 2 and umbilical artery Doppler in cases of preterm birth after prenatal hypertensive disorder or suspected fetal growth restriction: the EPIPAGE 2 prospective population-based cohort study.
CONCLUSION: Among children born before 32 weeks of gestation because of suspected fetal growth restriction or hypertensive disorder who survived until age 2, prenatal ARED in the umbilical artery was associated with more frequent moderate or severe neuromotor or sensory disabilities.

Prevalence of negative sliding sign representing pouch of Douglas obliteration during pelvic transvaginal ultrasound for any indication.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: This distorted anatomical state of pouch of Douglas (POD) obliteration can be predicted with a high degree of certainty and reproducibility using the dynamic transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) sliding sign technique. Studies on POD obliteration prediction have always focused on populations in tertiary care centers with high endometriosis prevalence. In addition to patients with symptomatic endometriosis, POD obliteration may exist in individuals with asymptomatic endometriosis or other etiologies such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), pelvic tuberculosis, or surgical scarring. For most abdominal...

Redundancy of the foramen ovale flap may mimic aortic coarctation in the fetus.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: Aim of this study is to assess the relationships between a redundant foramen ovale flap (RFOF) - in the absence of a clearly restrictive foramen ovale - and ventricular disproportion in three group of foetuses: 1) foetuses with a final diagnosis of aortic coarctation (CoA); 2) foetuses referred for a suspicion of ventricular disproportion and/or CoA who did not develop CoA postnatally; 3) normal foetuses. METHODS: This is a retrospective study including 73 fetuses, allotted to three groups: 1) foetuses with a final diagnosis of isolated CoA (12 cases); 2) foetuses referred for a suspicion ...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the agreement between grading of obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASI) on translabial ultrasound (TLUS), using a newly developed algorithm and on examination, using the current clinical classification. A secondary aim was to assess correlation of tear severity, as defined on ultrasound, with symptoms of anal incontinence and/or fecal urgency. METHODS: A retrospective study on 260 patients seen at a perineal clinic between 2012 and 2018 after recent primary repair of OASI.

Neurodevelopmental outcome at 2  years of corrected age for fetuses with increased nuchal translucency and normal karyotype compared to matched controls.
This study assessed the long-term prognosis of infants with isolated, increased NT. METHODS: We prospectively followed 490 infants with an NT thickness above the 95th percentile during the first trimester, but with a normal karyotype and no major anomalies. At 2 years of corrected age, they were compared to controls matched for birthweight, Apgar score, birthplace, mothers' parity and gestational age. Their developmental quotient (DQ), postural, language, coordination, sociability and global scores were assessed by the Brunet-Lézine test. RESULTS: Results were available for 203 infants in the increa...

Imaging in gynecological disease: ultrasound features of malignant ovarian yolk sac tumors (endodermal sinus tumors).
CONCLUSION: Malignant ovarian yolk sac tumors are often detected at an early stage, in young women usually in the second or third decade of life, presenting with pain and markedly elevated S-AFP. On ultrasound yolk sac tumors are mostly unilateral, large, multilocular-solid or solid, with fine-textured slightly hyperechoic solid tissue, and rich vascularization.

Transvaginal sonography accurately predicts lesion to anal verge distance in women with deep endometriosis of the rectosigmoid.
CONCLUSION: There is good reliability between the TVS and IOMs of the distance between rectosigmoid DE and the anal verge. As a consequence TVS could be useful for estimation of the height of the final surgical anastomosis in women undergoing full thickness resection for rectosigmoid DE. This is of pivotal importance regarding the risk of complications and temporary stoma use and could improve patient counseling. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Fetal cerebral vascular impedance is abnormal in left congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) can cause significant mass effect in the fetal thorax displacing the heart into the opposite hemithorax. In left CDH (L-CDH), this is associated with smaller left-sided cardiac structures and lower left ventricular cardiac output (LVCO). The effect of these physiologic changes on cerebral blood flow is not well understood. We sought to describe the middle cerebral artery pulsatility index (MCA PI), a measure of vascular impedance, in L-CDH and right CDH (R-CDH) versus unaffected fetuses, and the relationship of MCA PI to LVCO. We hypothesized that MCA PI i...

Safety of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the postpartum period among women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy: a meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: The present meta-analysis suggests that postpartum NSAIDs are not associated with elevated blood pressure among women with gestational hypertensive disorders. The existing evidence is of very low quality and thus future large-scale randomized controlled trials are warranted to verify the safety of postpartum NSAIDs in this population.

Effect of monochorionicity on perinatal outcomes and growth discordance in triplet pregnancies: a collaborative multicentre study in England, 2000-2013.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite close antenatal surveillance, monochorionic placentation in a triplet pregnancy was associated with a significantly increased stillbirth risk, mainly due to feto-fetal transfusion syndrome and selective fetal growth restriction.

Imaging in gynecological disease: clinical and ultrasound characteristics of adnexal torsion.
CONCLUSION: Most patients with surgically confirmed adnexal torsion are of reproductive age and present with acute or subacute pain. Common ultrasound signs are an enlarged organ, the "whirlpool sign", and "ovarian stromal edema with or without peripherally displaced antral follicles", and free fluid in the pelvis. The "follicular ring sign" and absence of Doppler signals are slightly less common signs. Recognizing ultrasound signs of adnexal torsion is important so that correct treatment, i.e. surgery without delay, can be offered. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. ...
