PURPOSE: To evaluate the best performing formula for macrosomia prediction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed of 1060 sonographic fetal biometrical measurements performed within 7 days of delivery in term pregnancies (37-42 gestational weeks) complicated by diabetes. Sonographic prediction of macrosomia (≥ 4000, ≥ 4250, and ≥ 4500 g) was evaluated utilizing ten previously published formulas by: (1) calculating for each macrosomia threshold the sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value, and ± likelihood ratio for macrosomia prediction; (2) comparing the systematic and random error and the proportion of estimates < 10% of birth weights between macrosomic and non-macrosomic neonates...

A healthy 37 - year - old woman referred to our clinic with one - year history of recurrent urinary tract infection, dysuria and frequency. Her past medical history informed us that an IUD (Copper TCu380A) had been inserted 11 years ago. Eleven months after the IUD insertion she had become pregnant, unexpectedly. At that time, she had undergone gynecological examination and abdominal ultrasound study. However, the IUD had not been found, and the gynecologist had made the diagnosis of spontaneous fall out of the IUD...

BACKGROUND: Preterm delivery during pregnancy (<37 weeks' gestation) is a leading cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity. Treating bacterial vaginosis during pregnancy can reduce poor outcomes, such as preterm birth. We aimed to investigate whether treatment of bacterial vaginosis decreases late miscarriages or spontaneous very preterm birth. METHODS: PREMEVA was a double-blind randomised controlled trial done in 40 French centres. Women aged 18 years or older with bacterial vaginosis and low-risk pregnancy were eligible for inclusion and were randomly assigned (2:1) to three parallel groups: single-course or triple-course 300 mg clindamycin twice-daily for 4 days, or placebo...

BACKGROUND: Identification of windows of heightened vulnerability to environmental factors has substantial public health implications. Prenatal exposure to vanadium has been linked to adverse birth outcomes; however, critical windows for such exposure during fetal growth remain unknown. We aimed to assess trimester-specific associations of vanadium exposure with ultrasound measures of fetal growth and birth size in a Chinese longitudinal cohort. METHODS: The present study was embedded in our ongoing prospective prenatal cohort study at the Wuhan Women and Children Medical Care Center (Wuhan, Hubei, China)...

Hepatitis E virus is the etiological agent for Hepatitis E infection, which is congruent to Hepatitis A infection. The clinical spectrum of the disease range from asymptomatic self-limiting disease which requires no treatment to life threatening fulminant liver disease in pregnancy, G6PD deficient and post-liver transplant patients, which necessitate urgent treatment. Similarly we are reporting a case of a 28 year old male with no previous known comorbids, who presented in emergency department with low grade fever, yellow discolouration of eyes and upper abdominal pain for last 5-6 days...

OBJECTIVE: This study sought to test the hypothesis that the measurement of the right portal vein (RPV) diameter on the transverse abdominal view at the 32-week ultrasound scan is small in fetuses with growth retardation and to validate the use of this measurement as a tool for detecting SGA at birth. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study at a single centre. The study population comprised 326 consecutive pregnancies, including 29 SGA at delivery and 297 unaffected cases...

A 35-year-old woman presented with spotting and lower abdominal pain. Follow-up sonography was suggestive of interstitial ectopic pregnancy. Laparoscopic cornuostomy was carried out. Before incision, diluted vasopressin was injected around the site of interstitial pregnancy. Removal of the conceptual tissues was conducted smoothly through a 1.5 cm incision. The overall blood loss was 50 mL. The operative time was 50 min, and there were no intraoperative complications. We successfully performed laparoscopic cornuostomy, which was followed by an unremarkable postoperative course...

Purpose: To identify cardiovascular risk factors in women between 40 and 65 years old in two private clinic of gynecology in Minas Gerais. Methods: Cross-sectional study from January/2016 to January/2017 in 137 climacteric women. A standardized questionnaire was used to evaluate socio-demographic characteristics, climacteric phases, cardiovascular risk factors, menopause (age, time and type), number of pregnancies, normal births, abortions, partners and hormonal therapy...

PURPOSE: To determine the diagnostic yield of combined exome sequencing (ES) and autopsy in fetuses/neonates with prenatally identified structural anomalies resulting in termination of pregnancy, intrauterine, neonatal, or early infant death. METHODS: ES was undertaken in 27 proband/parent trios following full autopsy. Candidate pathogenic variants were classified by a multidisciplinary clinical review panel using American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) guidelines...

BACKGROUND: This registry study evaluates the effects of oral Centellicum®, a new preparation of Centella asiatica (CA) on cutaneous stretchmarks (SMs) on the lower abdominal wall in comparison with the topical treatment with a specific antistretch cream. This cream is used for pregnancy SMs. The aim of the management was to give back to the structurally damaged skin areas (apparent as SMs) a normal elasticity and resistance and improving the local microcirculation. METHODS: We selected 78 healthy women with SMs at least 6 months postpartum available to follow the registry plan...

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that is usually associated with chronic abdominal pain and altered bowel habits. The two spectra of the disease include constipation-predominant IBS and Diarrhea-predominant IBS. Earlier it was thought to be an unexplained brain-gut disorder, but of late, various underlying causes suggesting primary gut disturbance have been identified. The initial management primarily includes the non-pharmacological measures such as dietary modifications, increasing physical activity, and psychological therapy...

Herniation of the amniotic sac into the peritoneal cavity or bladder is a rare but serious condition during pregnancy, which has not been reported in pored congenital uterine anomaly. Here, we report a rare case to draw obstetricians' attention to the atypical uterine rupture. A primigravida at 35 weeks of gestation was admitted for upper abdominal pain. A primary diagnosis of uterine rupture was made after finding the amniotic sac herniation through obstetric ultrasound. Exploration during emergent cesarean section revealed symmetrical pored defect on the uterine horn...

STUDY QUESTION: Are higher overall and central adiposity associated with reduced fecundability, measured by time-to-pregnancy (TTP), in Asian women? SUMMARY ANSWER: Higher overall adiposity, but not central adiposity, was associated with longer TTP in Asian women. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: High body mass index (BMI) has been associated with a longer TTP, although the associations of body composition and distribution with TTP are less clear. There are no previous studies of TTP in Asian women, who have a relatively higher percentage of body fat and abdominal fat at relatively lower BMI...

PURPOSE: Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease caused by a C1 inhibitor (C1-INH) deficit. Clinically, HAE is manifested by repeated episodes of localized subcutaneous or submucosal oedema attacks. Managing HAE patients in pregnancy is challenging, since there are only limited data on the safety and efficacy of various therapeutic approaches. METHODS: We present our clinical experience treating acute HAE attacks during pregnancy in six consecutive patients...

Background: Heterotopic pregnancies implanted in a rudimentary uterine horn account for 1 in 2-3 million gestations, and confer significant risk of morbidity due to uterine rupture and hemorrhage. Case presentation: A 34-year-old nullipara presented with acute pelvic pain at 17 weeks of gestation with dichorionic-diamniotic twins, one in each horn of an anomalous uterus first diagnosed in pregnancy as bicornuate. Three-dimensional ultrasound and MRI revealed myometrial disruption in the left rudimentary uterine horn, and the patient underwent an uncomplicated abdominal hemi-hysterectomy...

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed for 207 pregnancies with fetal gastroschisis followed between 2005 and 2017. Patients were followed according to a strict protocol involving ultrasound scans and routine evaluations of fetal biophysical profile parameters and intra- and extra-abdominal bowel diameters...
