Cell-free fetal DNA in the plasma of pregnant women with severe fetal growth restriction.
It is demonstrated that there was no increase in fetal DNA in the plasma of pregnant women with fetal growth restriction and that most Fetal DNA in maternal plasma originates from trophoblasts.
Effects of epidural analgesia on labor length, instrumental delivery, and neonatal short-term outcome
Epidural analgesia was associated with slowly progressing labor, thus resulting in an increased rate of instrumental delivery, which appears to adversely affect the neonatal outcomes more strongly than the analgesia itself.
Down syndrome biochemical markers and screening for preeclampsia at first and second trimester: correlation with the week of onset and the severity
To estimate the combined screening performance of first and early second trimester prenatal serum markers for Down syndrome, in screening for the development of preeclampsia, and analyze the
Vaginal cuff dehiscence after hysterectomy: a multicenter retrospective study.
Vaginal evisceration after hysterectomy is a rare gynecological surgical complication that presents as a spontaneous event in elderly patients, while sexual intercourse before the complete healing of the vaginal cuff is the main trigger event in young patients.
Ultrasound prediction of symptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus infection.
When fetal infection status is unknown, ultrasound abnormalities predict symptomatic congenital infection in only a third of cases.
Performance of peripheral (serum and molecular) blood markers for diagnosis of endometriosis
A combination of serum and molecular markers could allow a better diagnosis of endometriosis and yielded the better sensitivity followed by mRNA for Survivin gene.
Gene expression in chorionic villous samples at 11 weeks' gestation from women destined to develop preeclampsia
To evaluate the direct alterations in mRNA expression among chorionic villous samples from 11 weeks' pregnant women who would develop preeclampsia (PE) later in the pregnancy, data are presented on whether these changes occur during or after the first trimester of pregnancy.
Matrix Metalloproteinase-3 mRNA: A Promising Peripheral Blood Marker for Diagnosis of Endometriosis
The results indicate that circulating mRNA for MMP-3 is significantly higher in patients with endometriosis than in control patients, regardless of the degree of severity, and support the possibility of finding genes suitable for diagnostic qRT-PCR for endometRIosis in peripheral blood.
Brainstem–vermis and brainstem–tentorium angles allow accurate categorization of fetal upward rotation of cerebellar vermis
To evaluate the role of the brainstem–vermis (BV) and brainstem–tentorium (BT) angles in the differential diagnosis of upward rotation of the fetal cerebellar vermis.
Significant fetal-maternal hemorrhage after termination of pregnancy: implications for development of fetal cell microchimerism.
Analysis by quantitative polymerase chain reaction amplification demonstrated a large fetal-maternal transfusion after elective abortion, indicating the potential for future development of fetal cell microchimerism must now extend to a larger population of women.
