OBJECTIVES: A high ratio of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1) to placental growth factor (PlGF) has been linked with pre-eclampsia (PE). We evaluated the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio as a predictive marker for early-onset PE in women at risk of PE. METHODS: This prospective, Spanish, multicenter study included pregnant women with PE risk factors (including: history of intrauterine growth restriction; PE; eclampsia; hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count syndrome; pre-gestational diabetes; and abnormal uterine artery Doppler ultrasound)...

OBJECTIVES: Although the postnatal physiology of D-loop transposition of the great arteries with intact ventricular septum (DTGA-IVS) is well established, little is known about fetal DTGA-IVS. In the normal fetus, the pulmonary valve (PV) is larger than the aortic valve (AoV), there is exclusive right to left flow at the foramen ovale (FO) and ductus arteriosus (DA), and the left ventricle (LV) ejects 40% of combined ventricular output (CVO) through the aorta, primarily to the brain. In DTGA-IVS, the LV ejects O2 -rich blood to the pulmonary artery, theoretically leading to pulmonary vasodilation, increased branch pulmonary arterial flow and reduced DA flow...

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of this study was to evaluate if the magnitude of change in the cerebro-placental ratio (CPR) after 30 weeks gestation was better predictive of adverse pregnancy outcome compared to a single measurement at 35-37 weeks. A secondary aim was to evaluate whether the utility of CPR measured at 35-37 weeks was enhanced after adjusting for the gestational change. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of women who had had at least two ultrasound scans between 30-37 weeks gestation with the final scan taking place at 35-37 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: Preeclampsia, a pregnancy-specific hypertensive disorder, has been associated with cardiovascular risk factors and vascular changes, such as acute atherosis in placental blood vessels, which are similar to early-stage atherosclerosis. The objective of this study was to determine whether women with preeclampsia have increased atherosclerotic burden, as determined by carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), when compared to women without preeclampsia. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that reported CIMT, a non-invasive, ultrasound-based measure of subclinical atherosclerosis, in women who did vs...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the outcome of monochorionic (MC) twin pregnancies affected by selective intra-uterine growth restriction (sIUGR) according to the umbilical artery Doppler pattern of the smaller twin. METHODS: Medline, Embase, Cinhal and ClinicalTrials.gov databases (2000-2016) were searched. sIUGR was defined as the presence of one twin with estimated fetal weight and/or abdominal circumference less than 10(th) or 5(th) percentile and classified according to the umbilical artery Doppler flow pattern of the smaller twin (type I: persistently positive, type II: persistently absent/reversed, type III: intermittently absent/reversed)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the presence of different cardiac phenotypes among FGR. STUDY DESIGN: Fetal echocardiography was performed in 126 FGR (defined as birth weight <10(th) centile) and 64 adequate for gestational age (AGA). Principal component and cluster analyses were performed to identify different cardiac phenotypes among FGR cases. RESULTS: Three different cardiac phenotypes were identified within FGR: globular, elongated and hypertrophic...

OBJECTIVE: Birth weight (BW) is thought to be determined by maternal health, and genetic, nutritional and placental factors; the latter being influenced by anatomical development and perfusion. Maternal cardiovascular changes contribute to uteroplacental perfusion, however they have not been investigated in relation to fetal growth/BW. Our aim was to explore the relationship between maternal cardiovascular adaptation, fetal growth and BW in healthy pregnancies. METHODS: This was a longitudinal prospective study of women planning to conceive a pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the diagnostic accuracy of 2D and 3D saline contrast sonohysterography compared to hysteroscopy in the detection of endometrial polyps and submucosal myomas in women during reproductive age with abnormal uterine bleeding. METHOD: A systematic review of diagnostic studies that compared saline contrast sonohysterography with hysteroscopy was conducted according to the PRISMA and SEDATE recommendations. Only studies that compared two and/or three dimensional saline contrast sonohysterography with hysteroscopy and anatomopathology were included...

OBJECTIVE: In the TRUFFLE study on outcome of early fetal growth restriction women were allocated to three timing of delivery plans according to antenatal monitoring strategies based on reduced computerized cardiotocographic heart rate short term variation (c-CTG STV) , early Ductus Venosus (DV p95) or late DV (DV noA) changes. However, many infants were per protocol delivered because of 'safety net' criteria, or for maternal indications, or 'other fetal indications' or after 32 weeks of gestation when the protocol was not applied anymore...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate maternal hemodynamics in asymptomatic women with a pregnancy complicated by hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome, and compare it with patients with a previous preeclampsia (PE) and controls with uncomplicated pregnancies. METHODS: Women with a history of PE (n = 60) or HELLP syndrome (n = 49) and matched healthy controls (n = 60) underwent an echocardiographic examination 6 months-4 years after delivery, recording left ventricular (LV) dimensions, ejection fraction (LVEF) and mass, right ventricular (RV) tricuspid annular plane systolic movement (TAPSE) and fractional area changing (FAC)...

BACKGROUND: Defective trophoblastic invasion is a key feature in many of cases of preeclampsia. Uterine artery Doppler is a validated non-invasive surrogate of this trophoblastic invasion. OBJECTIVE: To explore whether low-dose aspirin administered from the first trimester improves trophoblastic invasion, evaluated by uterine Doppler, during the second and third trimesters in women defined as high-risk by abnormal uterine artery Doppler at first trimester. METHODS: This randomized Phase II study had a triple-blind, parallel-arm, controlled design...

BACKGROUND: Estimated fetal weight (EFW) and fetal biometry are complementary measures to screen for fetal growth disturbances. Our aim was to provide international EFW standards to complement the INTERGROWTH-21(st) Fetal Growth Standards that are available for use worldwide. METHODS: Women with an accurate gestational age assessment, who were enrolled in the prospective, international, multicentre, population-based, Fetal Growth Longitudinal Growth Study (FGLS) and INTERBIO-21(st) Fetal Study (FS), two of the components of the INTERGROWTH-21(st) Project, had ultrasound scans every 5 weeks from 9-14 weeks until 40 weeks' gestation...

OBJECTIVES: The primary aim of this systematic review was to ascertain the diagnostic performance of ultrasound in detecting birthweight (BW) discordance in twin pregnancies. METHODS: Medline, Embase and Cinahl databases were searched. Summary estimates of sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative likelihood ratios (LR+ and LR-) and diagnostic odds ratio (DOR) for the predictive accuracy of ultrasound estimated fetal weight (EFW) and abdominal circumference (AC) discordance in detecting actual BW discordance were computed using the hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic model...
