Guidelines for obstetrical practice in Japan: Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG) and Japan Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (JAOG) 2014 edition
TLDR
The aims of this publication include the determination of current standard care practices for pregnant women in Japan, the widespread use ofstandard care practices, the enhancement of safety in obstetrical practice, the reduction of burdens associated with medico‐legal and medico-economic problems, and a better understanding between pregnant women and maternity‐service providers.

Impact of frozen-thawed single-blastocyst transfer on maternal and neonatal outcome: an analysis of 277,042 single-embryo transfer cycles from 2008 to 2010 in Japan.
TLDR
Frozen-thawed BT is associated with improved general perinatal outcomes of pregnancy but significantly increased maternal risks of placenta accreta and PIH, which requires further investigation to assure maternal safety of patients undergoing ART treatment. Expand
Placenta previa increta/percreta in Japan: A retrospective study of ultrasound findings, management and clinical course
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to clarify the incidence, clinical background and prognosis of placenta previa increta/percreta treated with different modalities in Japan. Expand
Activator protein-2 impairs the invasion of a human extravillous trophoblast cell line.
TLDR
The present data suggest that AP-2 may suppress trophoblast migration and invasion, thus leading to a shallow placentation in preeclampsia. Expand
Angiotensin II mimics the hypoxic effect on regulating trophoblast proliferation and differentiation in human placental explant cultures.
TLDR
Data presented herein suggest a possible role for Ang II in impairing trophoblast differentiation toward an invasive phenotype, which might be associated with shallow invasion in preeclamptic placentas. Expand
Two cases of prenatally diagnosed congenital lobar emphysema caused by lobar bronchial atresia.
TLDR
Three-dimensional computed tomography bronchoscopy was effective to demonstrate accurate anatomical changes of the bronchus and 2 cases of prenatally diagnosed congenital lobar emphysema caused by bronchial atresia at the left upper lobar Bronchus are reported. Expand
Role of aminopeptidases in the blood pressure regulation.
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggest that the proteases are involved in the maintenance of pregnancy homeostasis including fetal and maternal BP regulation through the metabolism of bioactive peptides at the interface between mother and fetus. Expand
Placental aminopeptidase A as a possible barrier of angiotensin II between mother and fetus.
TLDR
The results of immunohistochemical evaluation and enzymatic activity suggested that placental aminopeptidase A may play a role as a component of the barrier of angiotensin II between mother and fetus. Expand
Levels of hepatocyte growth factor in maternal serum and amniotic fluid.
TLDR
Both placenta and amnion produce and secrete hepatocyte growth factor, suggesting its role in fetal growth and the growth and differentiation ofplacenta. Expand
Effects of estradiol administration on feto-placental growth in rat.
TLDR
In pregnant rats, estradiol benzoate causes fetal mortality at a pharmacological dose and fetoplacental growth retardation via trophoblastic degeneration and destruction of the placental labyrinth even at a physiological dose. Expand
