Peeyush K Lala, Pinki Nandi
The objective of the present review is to synthesize the information on the cellular and molecular players responsible for maintaining a homeostatic balance between a naturally invasive human placenta and the maternal uterus in pregnancy; to review the roles of decorin (DCN) as a molecular player in this homeostasis; to list the common maladies associated with a break-down in this homeostasis, resulting from a hypo-invasive or hyper-invasive placenta, and their underlying mechanisms. We show that both the fetal components of the placenta, represented primarily by the extravillous trophoblast, and the maternal component represented primarily by the decidual tissue and the endometrial arterioles, participate actively in this balance...

INTRODUCTION: Renal artery aneurysm rupture is an extremely rare cause of acute abdominal pain and haemodynamic instability in pregnancy. Due to its rarity, the diagnosis may not be immediately considered, and therefore there is a high associated mortality rate for both mother and fetus. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a case of a 41-year old primigravida who presented to the obstetricians at 22 weeks' gestation with severe abdominal pain, shock and fetal loss...

Despite the capacity of estrogens to favorably regulate body composition and glucose homeostasis, their use to combat obesity and type 2 diabetes is not feasible, because they promote sex steroid-responsive cancers. The novel selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) bazedoxifene acetate (BZA) uniquely antagonizes both breast cancer development and estrogen-related changes in the female reproductive tract. How BZA administered with conjugated estrogen (CE) or alone impacts metabolism is unknown. The effects of BZA or CE + BZA on body composition and glucose homeostasis were determined in ovariectomized female mice fed a Western diet for 10-12 wk...

AIM: To report experience of prophylactic occlusion balloon catheters (POBCs) in both internal iliac arteries before caesarean section, with or without embolization, to preserve the uterus and reduce haemorrhage. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Twenty-seven women diagnosed with morbidly adherent placenta (MAP) and with suspected placenta percreta underwent POBC placement before caesarean section. The balloons were inflated immediately after delivery of the baby. The patients' case notes were reviewed retrospectively for histological grading of MAP, blood loss, transfusion, requirement of uterine artery embolization (UAE), or hysterectomy, radiation dose, and infant or maternal morbidity and mortality...

REVIEW
John J Bromfield
The influence of seminal plasma on the cytokine and immune uterine environment is well characterised in mice and humans, while the effects of disruption to uterine seminal plasma exposure on pregnancy and offspring health is becoming more clearly understood. The cellular and molecular environment of the uterus during the pre- and peri-implantation period of early pregnancy is critical for implantation success and optimal foetal and placental development. Perturbations to this environment not only have consequences for the success of pregnancy and neonatal health and viability, but can also drive adverse health outcomes in the offspring after birth, particularly the development of metabolic disorders such as obesity, hypertension and insulin resistance...

Pyometra is a clinically relevant problem in intact female cats and dogs. The etiology is similar in both animal species, with the disease caused by bacterial infection of a progesterone-sensitized uterus. Here, we studied pyometra in cats with the aim to describe the incidence and probability of developing pyometra based on age and breed. The data used were reimbursed claims for veterinary care insurance or life insurance claims or both in cats insured in a Swedish insurance database from 1999 to 2006. The mean incidence rate (IR) for pyometra was about 17 cats per 10,000 cat years at risk (CYAR)...

REVIEW
S J LeBlanc
Up to half of dairy cows are affected by at least one of metritis, purulent vaginal discharge, endometritis or cervicitis in the postpartum period. These conditions result from inadequate immune response to bacterial infection (failure to clear pathogenic bacteria from the uterus) or persistent inflammation that impairs rather than enhances reproductive function. The degree of mobilization of fat and how effectively it is used as a metabolic fuel is well recognized as a risk factor for metabolic and infectious disease...

During early pregnancy, the developing conceptus is dependent upon a wide range of growth factors and nutrients that are secreted by or transported by uterine epithelia into the uterus at the maternal-conceptus interface for successful implantation and placentation. Among these factors, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is known to play an important role in development of the early embryo and uterine endometrium. However, few studies have been conducted with pigs to determine IGF-I-induced functional effects on peri-implantation embryos such as activation of cell signaling cascades responsible for growth, proliferation and differentiation of cells of the conceptus...

Placenta accreta is a condition when the placenta is abnormally adherent to the uterus. This can result in complications like severe haemorrhage, injuries to pelvic organs, possible need for Caesarian hysterectomy. There is always high risk of maternal morbidity and mortality. Over the last decade there has been gradual shift towards conservative management of placenta accreta involving uterine and placental conservation, with the main aim to reduce pelvic injury and to achieve haemostasis with the aid of intervention radiology by means of Uterine Artery embolisation and use of medical chemotherapeutic agents like Methotrexate...

OBJECTIVE: There are only a few series treating ≥10 cases of accreta conservatively, all from university teaching hospitals, with reported success rate of 60-85%. We reported the first series of accreta managed by planned uterine conservation in the setting of non-university district general hospital. METHODS: Women with placenta previa overlying previous cesarean scar who desired uterine conservation were included. For cases with accreta confirmed during cesarean delivery, placenta was purposefully left behind, followed immediately by uterine artery embolization...
