The women were divided into two groups: women diagnosed with OASI during vaginal delivery (n = 40) and women without OASI (n = 40), matched by mode of delivery and newborn birth weight...

Telemedicine is a way to provide care over a distance. In teleconsultations the intensivist gives advice to his or her colleagues in a remote centre. In tele-intensive care (tele-IC) the intensivist makes medical decisions for the remote patients and is fully responsible for the treatment of the intensive care patients in a remote centre. In the USA, 11% of ICU patients are currently being treated by tele-intensivists. Telemedicine has the potential of increasing the continuity of care and of providing expertise to patients in small ICUs where and when needed...

BACKGROUND: For women at low risk of childbirth complications, water immersion during labour is a care option in many high income countries. Our aims were (a) to describe maternal characteristics, intrapartum events, interventions, maternal and neonatal outcomes for all women who used a birthing pool during labour who either had a waterbirth or left the pool and had a landbirth, and for the subgroup of women who had a waterbirth in 19 obstetric units, and (b) to compare maternal characteristics, intrapartum events, interventions, and maternal and neonatal outcomes for women who used a birthing pool with a control group of women who did not use a birthing pool for whom we prospectively collected data in a single centre...

We report a case of primary malignant melanoma of cervix which is a rare malignancy with only around 60 cases being reported. This patient presented with bleeding per vaginum. A large exophytic growth from cervix with black discolouration was seen. International Federation of Gynaecology and Obsterics (FIGO) staging was stage IIa. Histoimmunocytology confirmed the diagnosis of malignant melanoma of cervix. S-100 and HMB-45 are reliable markers for cervical melanomas. We attempted Wertheim's hysterectomy; but, due to extensive disease, paravescical and pararectal fossae could not be dissected and we had to perform type I hysterectomy...

Family history as a screening technique has received little attention from epidemiologists as a means of early detection of disorders. In this paper, we present several every-day family cases that will prepare the family physician to make use, at will, of this special investigative tool. We deal primarily with Down's syndrome, defects of the central nervous system, infertility, metabolic disorders and, finally, marriage of close relations. For each case, the role to be played by the physician dealing with a positive family history involving a problem is detailed in terms of risks of occurrence and recurrence of the condition; particular aspects of the counselling process are presented, especially the logistic, psychological, ethical and social aspects...

To develop guidelines regarding prevention and treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence in patients qualified to hysterectomy. The Polish Gynecological Society formed a work group to develop guidelines. The work group formulated the following guidelines: 1. Since the hysterectomy per se is a risk factor for pelvic organ prolapse, more conservative procedures to hysterectomy should be considered and applied, whenever it is possible. 2. Pelvic organ prolapse is not the indication for hysterectomy...
