OBJECTIVES: To compare the first-trimester uterine artery pulsatility index (PI) measured by abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound (US). METHODS: We performed a prospective study of singleton pregnant women recruited at 11 to 13 weeks' gestation. The mean uterine artery PI was obtained by abdominal followed by transvaginal US. The mean of the left and right uterine artery PIs was used, and differences between approaches were computed. The intraclass correlation coefficient and a Bland-Altman plot were used to compare the two approaches...

Insufficient vasodilation of the uterine artery (UA) during pregnancy leads to poor utero-placental perfusion, contributing to intrauterine growth restriction and fetal loss. Activity of the large conductance Ca2+ -activated K+ (BKCa ) channel increases in the UA during pregnancy, and its inhibition reduces uterine blood flow, highlighting a role of this channel in UA adaptation to pregnancy. The auxiliary γ1-subunit increases BKCa activation in vascular smooth muscle, but its role in pregnancy-associated UA remodelling is unknown...

Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) increases the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes in adulthood. Previous studies employing bilateral uterine artery ligation in a rat model of IUGR have revealed age-associated decline in glucose homeostasis and islet function. To elucidate novel mechanisms contributing to IUGR pathogenesis, the islet transcriptome was sequenced at 2 weeks of age, when in vivo glucose tolerance is mildly impaired, and at 10 weeks of age, when rats are hyperglycemic and have reduced β-cell mass...

HASH(0x423f6c8) AIM: The aim of the study was to assess a relationship between the Doppler flows in foetal vessels, i.e. the middle cerebral artery (MCA), umbilical artery (UMA), umbilical vein (UV) and ductus venosus (DV) as well as in maternal vessels, i.e. the right uterine artery (UAR), left uterine artery (UAL) and the incidence of cesarean sections in pregnancies after 41 week with induced labour. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 130 pregnant women, including 100 pregnant women, between 41 and 42 weeks of gestation, in whom induced labour resulted in a cesarean section due to three main indications: lack of progress of labour (Group I-44), signs of foetal distress (Group II-32) and lack of response to induced labour (Group III-24)...

Children who are born preterm are at risk for encephalopathy of prematurity, a leading cause of cerebral palsy, cognitive delay and behavioral disorders. Current interventions are limited and none have been shown to reverse cognitive and behavioral impairments, a primary determinant of poor quality of life for these children. Moreover, the mechanisms of perinatal brain injury that result in functional deficits and imaging abnormalities in the mature brain are poorly defined, limiting the potential to target interventions to those who may benefit most...

With the development of assisted reproductive technology and the ethical limitations of research on humans, rat animal models have been widely used in reproductive medicine. In the past, the study of reproductive system development in rodents has been based on one-time histological examination of excised tissues. Recently, with the development of high-resolution transabdominal ultrasound, high-quality sonography can now be performed to evaluate the reproductive organs of rats, allowing a new method for studying the reproductive system...

In rodents, experimentally-induced ovarian hormone deficiency increases adiposity and adipose tissue (AT) inflammation, which is thought to contribute to insulin resistance and increased cardiovascular disease risk. However, whether this occurs in a translationally-relevant large animal model remains unknown. Herein, we tested the hypothesis that ovariectomy would promote visceral and perivascular AT (PVAT) inflammation, as well as subsequent insulin resistance and peripheral vascular dysfunction in female swine...

Development of the early embryo takes place under low oxygen tension. Under such conditions, the embryo implants and the trophectoderm, the outer layer of blastocyst, proliferate, forming the cytotrophoblastic shell, the early placenta. The cytotrophoblasts (CTBs) are the so-called epithelial 'stem cells' of the placenta, which, depending on the signals they receive, can differentiate into either extravillous trophoblast (EVT) or syncytiotrophoblast (STB). EVTs anchor the placenta to the uterine wall and remodel maternal spiral arterioles in order to provide ample blood supply to the growing fetus...

OBJECTIVE: Acquired uterine arteriovenous malformation (UAVM) is a rare, life-threatening disease. Angiography with uterine arterial embolization (UAE) is the diagnostic tool and a choice of fertility-sparing treatment. Here, we present a series of five successful pregnancies after embolization of UAVM. CASE REPORTS: Three reproductive aged women were treated for UAVM, resulting in five successful pregnancies. Their past history suggested that three cases had had previous uterine procedures, including second trimester abortion and elective dilatation and curettage...
