Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a common presentation of women in the emergency department. We describe the case of a 33-year-old female who presented with intermittent spotting due to an acquired uterine AVF. The patient underwent a transvaginal pelvic ultrasound as well as a CT angiogram. The patient was treated conservatively and elected to undergo uterine artery embolization in an effort to preserve fertility. She successfully delivered a healthy baby boy at 39-week gestation via an emergent caesarian section due to a prolapsed umbilical cord 17 months after undergoing the uterine artery embolization...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound (US) is the primary imaging modality for the diagnosis of placenta accreta, but it is not sufficiently accurate. MRI morphologic criteria have recently emerged as a useful tool in this setting, but their analysis is too subjective. Recent studies suggest that gadolinium enhancement may help to distinguish between the stretched myometrium and placenta within a scar area. However, objective MRI criteria are still required for prenatal diagnosis of placenta accreta...

A primipara at term was admitted to the labour ward with spontaneously emerged severe abdominal pain in the right flank and kidney. The patient was not known with any obstetric or urologic conditions. An acute caesarian section was performed due to the pain and pathological results of the cardiotocography, and a healthy child was delivered. During surgery, a haematoma was detected in the retroperitoneal space. A computed tomography (CT) of abdomen showed a Bosniak type IV tumour with surrounding haematoma in the kidney...

The analgesia produced by parietal infiltrations with local anesthetics (ALs) results from a block of conduction and the anti-inflammatory effect of the ALs. The duration of the reported analgesia is variable : limited to the duration of action of the ALs, or sometimes very prolonged. The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, study is to investigate the duration of the analgesia of a parietal infiltration after caesarian.

BACKGROUND: Acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE) is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder. First described by Brandt in 1936 and was named by Danbolt. A mutation in the SLC39A4 gene on chromosome 8 q24.3 is responsible for this disorder, which encodes zinc transporter Zip4. The diagnosis is made by the clinical presentation and histopathology and laboratory tests. In this case, we reported a twin presented with a typical rash and low zinc level. To our knowledge, very few cases reported as a twin with typical acrodermatitis enteropathica presentation...

Endometriosis is a disease represented by the presence of extra uterine endometrial tissue. It is a rare condition, and malignant transformation is seldom. We report a case with clear cell adenocarcinoma oncogenesis on abdominal wall scar that appeared after years of a caesarian section. After diagnosis, surgical treatment was performed twice, due to the fact that the margins were infiltrated with tumor cells, with replacement of the defect with a polypropylene mesh. The patient was cured and discharged with a favorable prognostic...

BACKGROUND: For peritoneal dialysis patients, the likelihood of conception is low and the probability of getting through the pregnancy successfully is even lower. Almost 60 years after the first reported case of a successful pregnancy in a dialysis patient, many issues concerning pregnancy in dialysis patients remain unresolved. Our patient's pregnancy is considered high risk as she has end stage renal failure and falls in the category of advance maternal age for pregnancy. We describe here the course of her uneventful pregnancy which we hope will contribute to the overall knowledge and management of pregnancy in elderly patients receiving peritoneal dialysis...

BACKGROUND: According to recent evidence, up to 40-50% of variance in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) liability might be determined by environmental factors. In the present paper, we conducted a review of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of environmental risk factors for ASD. We assessed each review for quality of evidence and provided a brief overview of putative mechanisms of environmental risk factors for ASD. FINDINGS: Current evidence suggests that several environmental factors including vaccination, maternal smoking, thimerosal exposure, and most likely assisted reproductive technologies are unrelated to risk of ASD...

Toshihiko Nakamura, Mari Nakamura, Naoto Takahashi
A newborn male with pulmonary edema was delivered at term by elective Caesarian section. Cytokine profiles of 17 cytokines and KL-6 in cord blood and serial serum values were investigated. The cord blood values of all 17 cytokines and KL-6 were within normal limits. Subsequently, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-13, IL-17, and IFNγ rapidly elevated during the first several hours after birth and dramatically decreased thereafter, whereas KL-6 rose to 611 U/ml on the 3(rd) day of life and then gradually decreased. These cytokines may induce pulmonary permeability, and KL-6 secreted in lining fluid could result in influx into the bloodstream...

Firearm injury (FAI) in pregnant women is reported in the literature; however, no reference to date was found to address the neonatal abdominal surgery performed after maternal FAI. FAI during fetal life is extremely rare and very few cases have been reported. We present a report of a 37-week gestation newborn whose mother had an accidental FAI. The neonate was delivered by emergency caesarian section along with emergency laparotomy of the newborn. The baby presented at eight hours of life, who was managed surgically in emergency for multiple small and large bowel perforations and a piece of bullet was recovered from anterior part of thigh...

BACKGROUND: Association between caesarian section (C-section) and obesity is controversial and mostly based on body mass index (BMI), which has inherent limitations. Using direct estimates of body fat mass, we aimed to assess the association between C-section and adiposity using fat mass index and BMI z-score in three birth cohort studies from Pelotas, Brazil. METHODS: We measured weight, height and fat mass (using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)) at ages 6, 18 and 30 years among participants in the 2004, 1993 and 1982 population-based Pelotas Birth Cohort Studies, respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Preterm birth is still a major health problem throughout the world, which results in 75% of neonatal mortality. Preterm labor not only inflicts financial and emotional distress, it may also lead to permanent disability. The present study was conducted to determine the related risk factors and preventive measures of preterm labor. METHODS: This retrospective cross-sectional study assessed all preterm labors, as well as an equal number of term labors, during seven years, at an educational hospital...

A 34-year-old para V woman was referred to our centre at 35+1 weeks of gestation for an assumed fetal malformation with prenatal renal impairment and anhydramnios. Prenatal ultrasound demonstrated unilateral renal agenesis; the bladder was not detectable. The baby was born by caesarian section at 36+2 weeks of gestation because of placental insufficiency. Postnatal adaptation was uneventful, but the newborn presented external stigmas of trisomy 21 and progressive renal impairment with anuria. Nevertheless, the postnatal ultrasound showed two enlarged kidneys in loco typico with impaired perfusion but without signs of malformations...

Fetal distress seems to be strongly related to fetal hypoxia, which is known to cause derangement of the balance between pro-oxidant and anti-oxidant factors by depleting the antioxidant reserve and increasing oxidative stress. Reduced Apgar score signify the fetal distress in postpartum period. The current study explores the severity of oxidative stress and nitrosative stress markers along with the antioxidant status in the cord blood of the newborns with low Apgar score (Group 1), fairly low Apgar score (Group 2) and normal Apgar score (Group 3) in both categories born by Cesarean section (CS) and Normal delivery (ND)...

In patients with 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl(HMG)-CoA lyase deficiency (OMIM 246450), five pregnancies have been described worldwide, which were either terminated or resulted in severe metabolic sequelae during pregnancy or delivery. Here, we report on a patient with HMG-CoA lyase deficiency, who underwent two uncomplicated pregnancies. The 19-year-old patient was admitted because of recurrent vomiting and nausea. Diagnostics revealed pregnancy at week 8 of gestation. Metabolic analyses revealed normal lactate and blood glucose levels and normal acid-base status...

BACKGROUND: Medical practice variation refers to differences in health service utilization among regions in the same country. It is used as a tool for studying health inequities. In 2011, the OECD launched a Medical Practice Variation Project which examines regional differences within countries and explores the sources of the inter-regional differences. The aim of this study is to examine the patterns and trends in geographic variation for selected health services in Israel. METHODS: The analysis is based on data from the National Hospital Discharges Database (NHDD) of the Israeli Ministry of Health...

BACKGROUND: Isolated maternal hypothyroxinaemia (IH) is defined as low maternal FT4 (<5th percentile) and normal thyroid-stimulating hormone. There is concern on its potential negative effects on the mother and offspring. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of IH and to assess the consequences of hypothyroxinaemia on the maternal and foetal outcomes. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: From a total of 1300 consecutive pregnant women recruited during the prenatal screen (mean gestational age, 11·8 weeks), thyroid function parameters were assessed in 879 women...

Isolated rectus abdominis muscle endometriosis is very uncommon with less than 20 case reports being published to date since its first description in 1984 by Amato and Levitt. We report another case of isolated rectus abdominis endometriosis in a 37-year-old patient with a previous caesarian section. We also discuss the diagnostic and treatment particularities in these patients. In our case, the treatment was only surgical and currently the patient is disease-free during the 24-month follow-up.

STUDY QUESTION: Do the chemotherapeutic regimens of ABVD (adriamycin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine) or OEPA-COPDAC (combined vincristine, etoposide, prednisone, doxorubicin (OEPA) and cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisone, dacarbazine (COPDAC)) used to treat Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), affect the density, morphology and in vitro developmental potential of human ovarian follicles? SUMMARY ANSWER: Ovarian tissue from women treated with ABVD contained a higher density of non-growing follicles (NGFs) per cubic millimetre and increased numbers of multiovular follicles but showed reduced in vitro growth compared with patients with lymphoma who had not received chemotherapy, patients treated with OEPA-COPDAC, age-matched healthy women and age-related model-predicted values...
