Objective: To analyze the prognosis of surviving monochorionic co-twin after single intrauterine fetal demise (sIUFD). Methods: Retrospectively analyzed the twin pregnancy cases admitted in Peking University Third Hospital between Jan 2008 and Feb 2015. We recorded perinatal characteristics, neuroimage in co-twin, and followed up the neonatal outcome. Results: 47 cases were found, including 45 cases of monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) and 2 cases of monochorionic monoamniotic (MCMA). Median gestational age at sIUFD was 27 weeks...

Five novel strains showing non-motile, alginolytic, halophilic and fermentative features were isolated from seawater samples off Okinawa in coral reef areas. These strains were characterized by an advanced polyphasic taxonomy including genome based taxonomy using multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) and in silico DNA-DNA similarity (in silico DDH). Phylogenetic analyses on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the isolates could be assigned to the genus Vibrio, however they were not allocated into any distinct cluster with known Vibrionaceae species...

In the present study, to assess the feasibility of the SNPscan technique for mutation screening in patients with nonsyndromic hearing loss (NSHL) and neonatus in China, the SNPscan technique was compared with the SNaPshot screening system. Chinese patients (162) with NSHL were used as the experimental group and 276 children without HL were used as the control group, respectively. SNPscan detected molecular defects in 112 patients (68.5%). In this technique, 83 patients (51.2%) with homozygous or compound heterozygous had confirmed molecular etiology in the GJB2, SLC26A4, and MT-RNR1 genes...

Remifentanil with appropriate pharmacological properties seems to be an ideal alternative to epidural analgesia during labour. A retrospective cohort study was undertaken to assess the efficacy and safety of remifentanil intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (IVPCA) compared with epidural analgesia. Medical records of 370 primiparas who received remifentanil IVPCA or epidural analgesia were reviewed. Pain and sedation scores, overall satisfaction, the extent of pain control, maternal side effects and neonatal outcome as primary observational indicators were collected...

INTRODUCTION: Premature baby (praematurus, neonatus praetemporarius) indicates infant that is born before 37 full weeks of gestation, calculated from the first day of the last mother's menstruation. Premature baby is characterized by immaturity of its organs and tissues, which can lead to an immediate or later threat. Premature children cannot keep the body temperature and very quickly gets hypothermia. This is due to the low creation of heat, but also because of the great loss of heat through the thin skin, which lacks fat...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the characteristics of auditory brainstem response (ABR) in neonatal hyperbilirubinemia induced by different causes. METHODS: A total of 88 neonates (176 ears) with hyperbilirubinemia were divided into several groups according to the causes and followed up after 42 d, and 15 normal neonatus (30 ears) were measured ABR and analyzed the results. RESULTS: The thresholds of ABR in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase were the highest in all the groups and had the longest incidence rate...

A total of 350 stool samples from 196 males and 154 female children and neonatus admitted in Ibn-Sina hospital, Sirt, were examined from June 2001 to May 2002, to determine the prevalence of intestinal parasites. Intestinal parasitic infections were identified in 196 (56%) of children and neonates. No intestinal helminthic parasites were detected but 13 intestinal protozoan parasites were detected. The most prevalent protozoan was Entamoeba histolytica /E. dispar (36.57%); Blastocystis hominis (12.57%), Giardia lamblia (10...

OBJECTIVES: The major problem is the need for anticoagulant therapy in patient with mechanical heart valves. STUDY DESIGN: The aim of the study was to analyze the course and outcome of pregnancies of patients with artificial mechanical heart valves with anticoagulant therapy. Study included 43 pregnancies leaded and terminated at the Institute of Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinical Center of Serbia in 20 years. We divided the patients in two groups depending on the type of anticoagulation therapy...

Five alginolytic, facultative anaerobic, non-motile bacteria were isolated from the gut of Japanese abalones (Haliotis discus discus, H. diversicolor diversicolor and H. diversicolor aquatilis). Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene and gap gene sequences indicated that these strains are closely related to V. halioticoli. DNA-DNA hybridizations, FAFLP fingerprintings, and phylogenies of gap and 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the five strains represent two species different from all currently described vibrios...

Vibrios are ubiquitous and abundant in the aquatic environment. A high abundance of vibrios is also detected in tissues and/or organs of various marine algae and animals, e.g., abalones, bivalves, corals, fish, shrimp, sponges, squid, and zooplankton. Vibrios harbour a wealth of diverse genomes as revealed by different genomic techniques including amplified fragment length polymorphism, multilocus sequence typing, repetetive extragenic palindrome PCR, ribotyping, and whole-genome sequencing. The 74 species of this group are distributed among four different families, i...

An unreported coincidence of malformations has been studied by anatomical dissection in a mature male fetus. Auxiliary, this fetus was examined by computed tomography and the skeletal malformations were three-dimensionally reconstructed. The organs of the thorax as well as of the abdomen showed a visceral inversion. In the lumbar region, a hyperkyphosis was detected in addition to a split-notochord. A hydrocephalus internus with enlarged lateral ventricles and an agenesis of the corpus callosum were apparent...

INTRODUCTION: Skeletal anomalies are in the group of anomalies most difficult to be diagnosed antenatally. But, because of high lethality and morbidity rate as well as high possibility to be found again in the next pregnancy, they need to be systematically and actively looked for during every scan. CASE REPORT: A pregnant woman, aged 18, primigravida, was admitted to the Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynaecology because of polyhydramnios and suspected multiple fetal malformations...

The Streptococcus of the B group was considered during many years, as a women's prelabor pathogen and neonatus. Lastly an increase of the infections is observed, for this germ in adults, without being in connection with the pregnancy. The Streptococcus agalactiae, affect above all to patients, with any type of illness underlying. The most susceptible are the diabetics and focus of more habitual infection, the soft tissues and the bone. We described three cases of infection by Streptococcus agalactiae in adults picked up during two years, in a Service of Internal Medicine with 51 beds...

The presence of Listeria monocytogenes is studied in 1112 women belonging to four different groups: healthy women with no pathological obstetric antecedents, women with pathological obstetric antecedents, sterile women, and women with neonates suffering from listeriosis. Investigation on Listeria monocytogenes was achieved in 512 cases from the endocervical cavity and in all cases from the vaginal exudate. We have obtained a total of 2.3% of positive results. The 25 isolations of Listeria monocytogenes correspond to women with macerated fetuses, dead during the birth or after the birth, or to women whose neonatus was diagnosed to have listeriosis...

Changes in the microflora of the birth canal as a result of application of polyvinylpyrrolidone iodine were examined. 58 women in labor were randomly selected and assigned to a PVP iodine prophylaxis- and to a control group. Germinal spectra from cervical smears at the beginning of birth and directly post partum (p.p.) were taken, and bacteriological specimens from the intra-uterine catheter system and the oral cavity of the neonatus were also determined. In the p.p. cervical smears of the PVP iodine prophylaxis group, Escherichia coli (p = 0...

The lymph drainage of lower lip mucosa was studied in 30 fresh cadavers of fetus and neonatus by submucosa injection of 30% Prussian blue of chloroform solution. The collecting lymphatics in lateral third of both the right and left sides of the lower lip mucosa ran laterally to the angles of the mouth, and then back- and downward between mandible and depressor muscle of angle of mouth, and finally, accompanying the facial vessels, emptied into submandibular lymph nodes. The efferent lymphatics of the latter emptied into angular lymph nodes and jugulo-omohyoid lymph nodes...
