PURPOSE: To explore the efficacy of treatment for early cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) and to evaluate the characteristics of women with subsequent mixed mass formation. METHODS: Women with CSP, who received UACE followed by evacuation, were retrospectively analyzed. Clinical/sonographic characteristics in patients with or without mixed mass formation were compared. RESULTS: From a total of 395 cases, 105 cases had a pregnancy residual with mixed mass formation...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the added value of cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) and uterine Doppler velocimetry at third trimester scan in an unselected obstetric population to predict smallness and growth restriction. METHODS: We constructed a prospective cohort study of women with singleton pregnancies attended for routine third trimester screening (32 +0 -34 +6 weeks). Fetal biometry and fetal-maternal Doppler ultrasound examinations were performed by certified sonographers...

Successful implantation and placentation are dependent on the interaction between decidual stromal cells (DSC) and extravillous trophoblast (EVT) cells. The extent of trophoblast invasion relies on communication between the placenta and maternal decidua. The cyclical process of decidualisation induces a transformation of endometrial fibroblasts to secretory DSC; these secreted products have many functions including the control of trophoblast invasion. Inadequate trophoblast invasion and remodelling of the uterine vessels (the spiral arteries) are associated with pregnancy disorders such as pre-eclampsia...

By consensus, late fetal growth restriction is that diagnosed >32 weeks. This condition is mildly associated with a higher risk of perinatal hypoxic events and suboptimal neurodevelopment. Histologically, it is characterized by the presence of uteroplacental vascular lesions (especially infarcts), although the incidence of such lesions is lower than in preterm fetal growth restriction. Screening procedures for fetal growth restriction need to identify small babies and then differentiate between those who are healthy and those who are pathologically small...

The primary aim of this study is to determine the value of using a combination of serum histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG) level and uterine artery pulsatility index (PI) in pregnant women at 11-13+6 weeks' gestation to predict preeclampsia. The secondary aim is to determine the association between other pregnancy complications with the use of these combined tests. Transabdominal uterine artery PI and serum HRG level were measured at the time of first-trimester aneuploidy screening at 11-13+6 weeks' gestation in 327 pregnant women...

Previous studies have characterized ovarian steroid synthesis which directly affects uterine environment and blood flow. Clearance of steroids occurs primarily in hepatic tissues, however, it was discovered that there is an abundant activity of the phase II steroid metabolizing enzyme UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) in uterine biopsies. No minimally invasive techniques for collecting endometrial perfusion, which is affected by steroids and indicative of reproductive health, have been developed for livestock...

A greater understanding of the uterine artery's (UtA) biology is essential to the increase in female reproductive abilities. The UtA flow velocity waveform, blood flow volume (BFV), pulsatility and resistance indices (PI and RI), blood flow velocities, dynamics of the dominant follicle (DF), and estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) levels in an induced ovulatory cycle were evaluated in Thai native cattle. Twenty cows were induced with synchronized ovulation through a P4-releasing device, from Day -9 to Day -4, concurrent with the administration of two doses of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone on Day -9 and Day -1, and two doses of prostaglandin F2α on Day -4 and 8 h later...

Introduction: Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) accounts for a high proportion of maternal mortality and morbidity throughout the world. A uterine compression belt which has been developed recently represents a very low tech, low cost solution in managing postpartum haemorrhage. Objectives: To evaluate the blood flow changes in pelvic vessels following application of the postpartum haemorrhage compression belt (Laerdal Global Health, Stavanger, Norway). Methods: The sample included healthy postpartum women within 6 hours of vaginal delivery...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the utility of placental volume and three-dimensional (3D) vascular flow indices to predict early and late preeclampsia. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 1,004 pregnancies attending routine care, we recorded first-trimester screening program for aneuploidy (FTSA) parameter and measured uterine artery pulsatility index (uterine-a PI). Placental volume and vascular flow indices were obtained using 3D power Doppler and VOCAL techniques. RESULTS: Placental volume was lower and uterine-a PI was higher in both early and late preeclampsia groups versus nonaffected pregnancies...

AIM: Intrauterine balloon tamponade has been increasingly used for the management of post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) in recent years. However, data on the precise mechanisms and pressure required for the balloon tamponade are scanty in the literature. This study aims to review the intraluminal pressure (ILP) generated by the Bakri intrauterine balloon that is necessary to produce a 'positive tamponade test' during severe PPH. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study...

Aim of the study: To evaluate the value of uterine artery Doppler indices and waveform pattern in predicting fetuses at risk for intrauterine growth restriction in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Materials and methods: This was a prospective cross-sectional study including 80 pregnant subjects with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and two control groups. Uterine artery Doppler sonography was performed in all study participants. Uterine artery Doppler indices across the groups were compared using the analysis of variance (ANOVA) while the presence of prediastolic notch was analyzed with the Chi Square test...

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...

RATIONALE: Cornual ectopic pregnancy in adenomyosis patients is a rare clinical condition, which may require careful approach for accurate diagnosis and treatment. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 38-year-old woman presented with amenorrhea for 8 weeks and serum HCG levels of 1455 mmol/L. The B ultrasound showed an endometrial thickness of 1.7 cm, and the presence of a cystic structure (16 6 mm) at the right uterine horn. Color Doppler flow imaging (CDFI) accurately detected and confirmed the position of the cystic structure with its clear boundaries...

HASH(0x31fa298) 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)...
