Sheehan's syndrome remains a frequent obstetric complication with an uncertain pathophysiology. We aimed to assess the incidence of hypopituitarism (≥2 hormonal axis impairment) within the first six postchildbirth months and to determine the existence of anti-pituitary antibodies. From 2015 to 2017, adult pregnant women, who developed moderate to severe postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), were consecutively included in the study. Pituitary function was assessed 4 and 24 weeks after PPH. At the end of the study, anti-pituitary antibodies were assessed...

Alternative ways of preparing nonracemic 2-amino[6]helicene derivatives were explored. The enantioselective [2 + 2 + 2] cycloisomerization of a nonchiral triyne under Ni(cod)2/(R)-QUINAP catalysis delivered the enantioenriched (+)-(P)-2-aminodibenzo[6]helicene derivative in 67% ee. An ultimate "point-to-helical" chirality transfer was observed in the cyclization of enantiopure triynes mediated by Ni(CO)2(PPh)2 affording (-)-(M)- or (+)-(P)-7,8-bis(p-tolyl)hexahelicen-2-amine in >99% ee as well as its benzoderivative in >99% ee...

Background Although transarterial embolization (TAE) can powerfully control postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), clinical failure of TAE is not uncommon. Purpose To discover whether any parameters could predict timely clinical failure of TAE, then whether a supplementary intervention could be promptly initiated. Material and Methods We retrospectively analyzed 118 TAE procedures in 113 patients with PPH performed at our institution between January 2012 and May 2015. The patients were divided into the following groups: clinically successful TAE and failed TAE...

The current definition of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is inadequate for early recognition of this important cause of maternal mortality, responsible for more than 80,000 deaths worldwide in 2015. A stronger definition of PPH should include both blood loss and clinical signs of cardiovascular changes after delivery, which would help providers to more promptly and accurately identify PPH. Along with the amount of blood loss, clinical signs and specifically the Shock Index (heart rate divided by systolic blood pressure) appear to aid in more accurate diagnosis of PPH...

AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate epidemiological and clinical aspects of severe postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) in Japan. METHODS: We used national health insurance claims from 2011 to 2014 provided by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. The data included randomly selected claims that covered 10% of all inpatients in October, a so-called sampling dataset (covering 1/120 inpatients per year). We extracted claims for transfused blood, and further narrowed down the claims by names of diseases linked to PPH...

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Defined as greater than 500 mL blood loss after vaginal delivery, and greater than 1,000 mL blood loss after cesarean delivery, PPH has many causes, including uterine atony, lower genital tract lacerations, coagulopathy, and placental anomalies. Correction of coagulopathy and identification of the cause of bleeding are mainstays of treatment. Medical therapies such as uterotonics, balloon tamponade, pelvic artery embolization, and uterine-sparing surgical options are available...

Catalytic hydrodefluorination (HDF) of unactivated fluoroalkanes or CF3-substituted aryl species is performed using the P(III) Lewis acids, [(bipy)PPh]2+ (12+)and [(terpy)PPh]2+ (22+) under mild conditions (25 oC or 50 oC). Mechanistic studies indicate that activation of C-F bond by the P(III) center is key. Particularly noteworthy is that the catalyst 2[B(C6F5)4]2 is air-stable and readily accessible from bench-stable, commercially available reagents in one-step and can be used without isolation.

INTRODUCTION: Profuse postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and red blood cell (RBC) transfusion have been suggested to be associated with venous thromboembolic events (VTE). However, it is not fully clear if they are independent major risk factors. METHODS: Women who gave birth in the Stockholm area between 1999 and 2002 were those studied, i.e., before the implementation of guidelines for thromboprophylaxis in pregnancy. In this population-based cohort study the Swedish Medical Birth Registry was linked to the National Discharge Registry and to the transfusion database...

The trans isomer of the organogold(III) difluoride complex [PPh₄][(CF₃)₂AuF₂] has been obtained in a stereoselective way and in excellent yield by reaction of [PPh₄][CF₃AuCF₃] with XeF₂ under mild conditions. The compound is both thermally stable and reactive. Thus, the fluoride ligands are stereospecifically replaced by any heavier halide or by cyanide, the latter affording [PPh₄][trans-(CF₃)₂Au(CN)₂]. The organogold fluoride complexes [CF₃AuFx]⁻ (x = 1, 2, 3) have been experimentally detected to arise upon collision-induced dissociation of the [trans-(CF₃)₂AuF₂]⁻ anion in the gas phase...

RATIONALE: Placenta accreta is the main cause of severe obstetric postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and hysterectomy. Several hemostatic techniques have been performed in patients with placenta accreta to prevent PPH and reserve fertility. Abdominal aorta and pelvic arteries balloon occlusion are the only techniques which could be performed before cesarean section (CS) in patients who want to keep the fetus and reserve fertility. However, abdominal aorta and pelvic arteries balloon occlusion might lead to severe complications such as formation and rupture of pseudoaneurysm, angiorrhexis, etc...

BACKGROUND: Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is one of the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality around the world. Medical treatments and uterus-sparing interventions including balloon tamponades and compression sutures are the first line options before the decision is made to perform a hysterectomy. Our aim is to compare the success rates of the Hayman compression suture and the Bakri balloon tamponade in patients with PPH. METHODS: We enrolled 82 patients who were diagnosed with uterine atony during their cesarean sections and failed to respond to uterotonic agents...

As a leading cause of maternal death, postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) remains a worldwide obstetrical problem. However, in most cases, mortality and morbidity can be averted if efforts are immediately undertaken to achieve hemostasis. Uterine balloon tamponade has been shown to provide effective control of PPH and avoid more invasive surgical procedures and even the emergency peripartum hysterectomy. Recent clinical recommendation suggests that balloon tamponade should be considered earlier in the treatment cascade in conjunction with uterotonic agents to ensure hemostasis in the most timely fashion and maximize clinical outcomes...
