What Are Some Initial Evaluations for Suspected Congenital Muscle Diseases?
Discussion Usually congenital myopathies (CM, e.g. nemaline, core, centronuclear myopathies, etc.) and congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD, e.g. LAMA2-related, collage VI-related, alpha-dystroglycan-related muscular dystrophy, etc.) have been diagnosed based on physical examination and histopathology. Traditionally CMs are due to problems with the muscle contractile apparatus and structures that assist excitation-contraction coupling. CMD are due to problems with the extracellular matrix, muscle membrane and sarcolemmal membrane. Differentiating between CM and CMD have become more blurred as genetic testing and additional r...

Placenta Accreta Spectrum
Placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) refers to the range of pathologic adherence of the placenta to the uterine myometrium, including the placenta accreta, increta, and percreta. The incidence of PAS is rising primarily because of an increase in related risk factors, such as the rate of cesarean deliveries and pregnancies resulting from assisted reproductive technology. The maternal risks associated with PAS are significant, including hemorrhage, hysterectomy, and death. Fetal and neonatal risks are primarily the result of premature delivery. Antenatal diagnosis via ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging remains imperfe...
