Discovery of telocytes has become an important and key challenge in past few years. These cells are interstitial cells extending very long cytoplasmic processes named telopodes, by which they create functional networks in the interstitium of different organs. Telocytes are considered to be connective tissue elements that create contacts among each other, but they also function as intercellular structures, functionally connected with cells of the immune system, neurons and smooth muscle cells. Telocytes can be found also in the different parts of female reproductive system with functions and purpose, which is summarized in our overview...

OBJECTIFS: Hémolysis, Elevated Liver enzyme, Löw Platelets ou HELLP Syndrome est une complication de la pré-éclampsie dans 10 à 20 %. Le HELLP Syndrome n'a pas d'influence sur la morbidité néonatale. Les complications sont essentiellement imputables à la prématurité induite. La mortalité périnatale est évaluée à 22,6 %. Le but de cette étude est d'étudier l'incidence de la prématurité dans le HELLP Syndrome. MéTHODES: Étude prospective mono-centrique réalisée au Service de Gynéco-Obstetrique de EHUO...

The article presents reference limits of concentrations of placental growth factor and fms-similar tyrosine kinase-1 and values of their ratio in dynamics of physiologic pregnancy and in female patients with pre-eclampsy of different degree of severity in 1 and III trimesters of pregnancy. It is established that in female patients with pre-eclampsy ratio of fms-similar tyrosine kinase-1 and placental growth factor significantly exceed ratio in female patients with physiological course of pregnancy. The degree of increase of values of ration between fms-similar tyrosine kinase-1 and placental growth factor correlates with degree of severity of pre-eclampsy...

The aim of the study was to characterize the clinical and radiological spectrum of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) in a large cohort. The radiological report data bases of the authors' university hospitals were searched for patients with PRES. Various imaging features at onset of symptoms and on follow-up as well as clinical and paraclinical data were tabulated in those patients fulfilling the criteria for PRES. Exploratory univariate analyses were performed. A total of 96 patients with PRES were included into the study...

UNLABELLED: Digoxin is typically prescribed in the treatment of heart failure. Its limited therapeutic range requires systematic monitoring of plasmatic concentration through immunoreactive tests. Laboratory results, however, can be altered by the presence of digoxin-like immunoreactive factors (DLIF) which are released in all clinical conditions involving volemic expansion. CASE REPORT: An 86-year-old woman arrived in emergency with severe dyspnoea, atrial flutter and a medical history of ischemic cardiopathy...

HELLP-syndrome is one of the most severe variants of liver failure in pregnancy. The incidence among pregnant patients is 0.5-0.9%, and in presence of severe preeclampsia and eclampsy the incidence is 10-20%. Pathogenesis of HELLP-syndrome has common features with pathogenesis of preeclampsia, DIC-syndrome and fatty hepatosis of pregnant, this is confirmed by pathomorphological changes of liver in women with HELLP-syndrome. Efficacy of conservative therapy (corticosteroids, magnesium sulphate, hypotensive therapy, hepatoprotectors) and disintoxication methods (plasmapheresis, MARS-therapy) is not evident...

An analysis of brain magnetic resonance examinations in patients with neurological complications of preeclampsia published in English-language medical journals from 1980 to 2008 has been performed. Data systematization enabled to analyze the incidence of some MR-signs of brain injury typical for this pathology. Incidence, symmetry and volume of injury have been estimated. The most common areas of injury are occipital lobes of brain, which leads to typical visual impairments. All lobe injuries are generally symmetric...

INTRODUCTION: Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFWRS) is an acute infectious disease with abrupt onset, high fever, renal failure and frequent hemorragies. HFWRS during the pregnancy has relatively low occurrence, with only few described cases mostly in the region of the former Soviet Union. Although, according to the data from the literature, the disease is less severe during the pregnancy, the eclampsy, stillbirth and fetal infection were also described. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the summer period, June-September 2002 in the area of northeast Montenegro, and mainly among people whose job was connected with rural areas, the HFRS was observed more frequently...

Using data about births from the perinatal information system (PIS) registered in Montevideo (Uruguay), we estimated the probability of having a Caesarian section delivery, controlled by risk factors and the endogeneity of the choice of hospital. In public hospitals in Montevideo there is a fixed payment system, but in private hospitals this procedure has to be paid for separately. In the former, there is no effect on the doctor's income if he performs a Caesarian, but in the latter there is a positive effect...

The aim of investigation was to study the influence of obesity on the development of cholelithiasis and chronic cholecystitis in pregnant patients. The type of investigation was case-control study. Inclusion criteria were cholelithiasis and chronic cholecystitis. Exclusion criteria were severe maternal diseases (preeclampsy, eclampsy, haemorrhagia) during pregnancy and in past. The main group consisted of 30 cases. For each case 2-4 pregnant patients served as control. Obesity was assessed by body mass index (BMI), and visceral obesity before pregnancy--by waist circumference (WC, criterium of WC>88 cm)...

INTRODUCTION: Neonatal stroke (NNS) incidence appears to be increasing over the last years. This is believed to be a consequence of diagnostic accuracy rather than a real amplification of this entity. Nowadays, NNS incidence is estimated to be 1:4000 full newborns. CASE REPORT: Child with left middle cerebral artery territory infarction in which several thromboembolic risk factors were documented both in the child (neonatal sepsis and factor V Leiden) and his mother (lupus anticoagulant, pre-eclampsy and factor V Leiden)...

Antiepileptic drugs are thought to be responsible for an abnormally high incidence of post-partum haemorrhages. Data on perinatal mortality of epileptic patients are discordant. Children of epileptic mothers are frequently undersized. Although they have an incidence of malformations 1.25 times higher than average, these may be associated with the severity of seizures and with the disease itself, since there is no evidence that anticonvulsants are teratogenic. The influence of pregnancy on epileptic attacks is extremely variable...

A historical survey on the subject of weather and eclampsy is given in the introduction, at the beginning of which the names Smellie (1752), Boutteilloux (1816), Lachapelle (1925) and Zangemeister (1900) are mentioned. In the ten-year report the gestosis indices according to Goecke (n = 56,461) in the grouping 0/I-III/ = greater than IV are correlated with six general weather situations in each of the four seasons. From the chi 2 component test according to Krauth a relevant chi 2 limit of 8,95 is established...
