[The Influence of Maternal Obesity on Selected Obstetric Parameters].
Abstract INTRODUCTION: In Austria, the percentage of obese people increased by 5.2% between 1999 and 2014; 14.8% of women between the age of 15 to 45 are overweight. An increased body mass index (BMI) of women increases the risk of pathologies and irregularities during pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium. In this work, the influence of maternal obesity on selected obstetric parameters is analyzed. METHODOLOGY: The data set includes all single births between 1.1.2008 and 31.12.2018 with a predictable BMI (n=640922) from the Austrian birth register. The maternal BMI was compared with the variables of age o...

Lethal Neonatal Respiratory Failure by Perinatal Transmission of Ureaplasma Parvum after Maternal PPROM.
ig;ner E Abstract A primiparous pregnant woman was admitted due to preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) at 27+0 week of gestational age (WGA). Conventional vaginal microbiological analysis had no pathological finding. Management decisions based on national guidelines included antenatal corticoids, tocolytics and antibiotics. Unstoppable efforts of preterm labor in 28+0 WGA and supposed amniotic infection syndrome necessitated emergency cesarean section. The preterm infant underwent NICU therapy, developed an early-onset neonatal sepsis and therapy-refractory pulmonary insufficiency with consecutive right...

[Surviving the Lack: Natural Adaptations in Newborns].
Abstract Newborns are equipped with a number of natural adaptation mechanisms preventing them from impaired energy supply, despite their elevated (size-related) metabolic rate. These include the diving response known from aquatic mammals, which - being composed of apnea, bradycardia, and vasoconstriction - ensures an economical use of O2 reserves and results in a subsequent influx of lactate out of peripheral tissues. From a metabolic point of view, mammalian fetuses behave "like an organ of the mother" and thus exhibit a hibernation-like deviation from the overall metabolic size relationship that adapts...

[Ambulatory and Home Blood Pressure Measurement in Hypertensive Pregnant Women].
Abstract The prevalence of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy (HDP) is 6-8%. Blood pressure measurement (BPM) remains the cornerstone of diagnosis and should be performed in a standardised manner using automated devices. Office BPM represents only a spotty reading in an "artificial" environment failing to diagnose white coat hypertension (WCH). Ambulatory and home blood pressure measurement (ABPM/HBPM) are recommended for the diagnosis and differentiation of hypertension as well as for blood pressure and therapy control in women with HDP. Patient compliance is crucial for the use of both methods. ABPM i...

[Incarceration of the Gravid Uterus in the Second Trimester - Diagnostics, Successful Therapy and Review of Literature].
r F Abstract A rare complication in obstetrics is the incarceration of the gravid uterus. If the uterus remains retroverted, the fundus persists in the pelvic cavity. Due to growth, the familiar anatomy of the uterus changes and undetected incarceration can lead to a serious maternal morbidity. Early treatment can enable a normal prolongation of pregnancy. In our case, we report a first gravida with initial diagnosis of a posterior sacculation of the uterus in the 21st week of pregnancy. After confirmed diagnosis by MRI, the reduction of the uterus by vaginal digital lifting of the uterus and simultaneous rectosco...

[Acute Puerperal Uterine Inversion: A Case Report].
Abstract Puerperal inversion of the uterus is a rare but life-threatening obstetric complication. Unrecognized, it can lead to severe bleeding and shock and even maternal death. Manual replacement under general anesthesia is usually successful. If the manual replacement fails, surgical replacement by laparotomy needs to be performed. In any case, mortality and morbidity can be reduced by rapid recognition and immediate replacement. Therefore, regular practical exercises for the detection and treatment of acute uterine inversion as well as other obstetric emergencies should be performed as part of medical training....

Hirschsprung Disease - Clinical Relevance of RET Mutations.
Abstract Introduction To date, several genes involved in the pathogenesis of HD have been recognized. Out of these, the RET gene (chromosomal locus 10q11), one of the first genes identified in combination with HD, is still considered the basis for HD development. However, even with over a hundred RET gen coding sequence mutations identified, the mutations do not fully explain the observed sex bias of HD and the elevated risk of developing HD among siblings. Thus, our aim was to evaluate the clinical relevance of an as yet undescribed genotype in a family with HD to improve genetic counseling for families with...

Hydrosonographic Assessment of the Effect of Two Different Suture Materials on Healing of the Uterine Scar after Cesarean Delivery: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial.
This study aimed to compare the effects of two different suture materials, monofilament synthetic absorbable sutures versus multifilament synthetic absorbable sutures, on healing the uterine scar after a cesarean delivery. METHODS: A total of 95 women between the ages of 18 and 40 who had undergone a primary cesarean section (CS) after the 38th week of gestation. In Group I (n=48), continuous double-layer unlocked closure of the low transverse uterine incision was performed using monofilament synthetic absorbable sutures. In Group II (n=47), continuous double-layer unlocked closure of the low transverse uterine incisi...

A Forensic Aspect of Fetal Shoulder Dystocia.
Abstract Fetal shoulder dystocia (FSD) is an unpredictable and critical obstetric intrapartum emergency, where an objective problem is the relationship between the mother's pelvis and the child, i. e., an anthropometric disorder of delivery mechanics and dynamics. It is evident that the need to perform other maneuvers indicates the severity of FSD, which in turn correlates with the consequent iatrogenic injury of the fetus and/or mother. FSD is certainly the most controversial forensic obstetric problem, with the most disputes, compensation for damages due to peripartum injury to the child and/or mother, pa...

Fetal Intrapericardial Teratomas: An Update.
Abstract Fetal intrapericardial teratomas are rare and benign cardiac tumors. By comprehensive literature retrieval of the pertinent articles published since 2000, 49 articles with 61 cases of intrapericadial teratomas were recruited into this study. The intrapericardial teratomas were found during pregnancy in 55 cases (fetal group), while the tumors were detected until neonatal period in 6 cases (neonatal group). In the fetal group, 15 cases were critical with fetal/neonatal respiratory distress or cardiac tamponade. Antenatal treatments including centesis, shunt placement, open fetal surgery and the ex utero in...

[Results of the hypothermia registry of the University Hospital Dresden from 2010-2017. Application of hypothermia therapy in newborns in Germany].
DISCUSSION: After the introduction of TH in the clinical routine, the number of treated newborns increased continuously. Currently, the number of TH is higher than the number of children with HIE, which is difficult to explain, as the presence of a moderate or severe HIE is a mandatory requirement for TH. The data from the hypothermia registry showed no significant changes in mortality or neurological outcome over time.

Maternal Serum Haptoglobin Levels as a Marker of Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of maternal serum haptoglobin levels in patients presenting with preterm premature rupture of fetal membranes (PPROM) during the second and the third trimesters of pregnancy. METHODS: In this case control study, 60 patients were recruited (30 pregnant women with PPROM between 26-34 weeks of gestation and 30 healthy, gestational-age-matched pregnant women without PPROM). White blood cell count (WBC), interleukin 6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein (CRP), sedimentation rate, and haptoglobin levels were measured. RESULTS: The mean age, gestational we...
