High AFP level (386.9 ng/ml) at the 16th gestational week in a 23-year old pregnant woman was observed. Fetal malformations or maternal causes could not be detected. Monitoring of fetal development and that of the fetal heart rate showed a worsening intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR). Due to the chronic hypoxia and IUGR cesarean section was performed in(More)
INTRODUCTION The wide use of infertility drugs and assisted reproduction has resulted in 4- to 5-fold increase in the incidence of triplet pregnancies, which carry an extremely high risk of maternal complications and adverse perinatal outcome. In Hungary, reduction of multifetal pregnancies is available for all pregnant women with multifetal gestation since(More)
