The objective of the present study was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of the simultaneous measurement of three serological markers of chlamydial infection in women with tubal factor infertility (TFI) and spontaneous miscarriage. Serum was collected from 87 patients (33 with TFI and 54 with spontaneous miscarriage) and analyzed for the presence of IgG(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study is following up the pregnancy and delivery in women with cerebrospinal fluid shunts for hydrocephalus. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study includes 12 pregnant women (9 nuliparous and 3 multiparous) ranging in age from 19 to 36 years which were initially shunted prior to the pregnancy. 9 of the patients had VP shunts and 3 with(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the incidence of cervicovaginal infections in patients with preterm and term deliveries. MATERIALS AND METHODS 88 pregnancies with no previous detectable risk factors have been included in a retrospective study. 48 patients delivered at term and 40 had delivery between 24 and 37 weeks of gestation. A vaginal swab for bacterial(More)
A case of submucosal isthmicocervical myoma, 85 mm in diameter, diagnosed for first time during CS. The neonate is with atrophy of left m. sternocleidomastoideus and facial asymmetry due to impression in the left temporoparietal region, without neurological impairment. Multiple ultrasound examinations were done but the fibroids vas not diagnosed. During one(More)
The purpose of the study was to measure advanced glycated end products (AGE) of elastin in human serum. In the present study, we adapted an ELISA technique for the determination of AGE-elastin-derived peptides (AGE-EDP) in human sera of healthy and diabetic subjects. This test makes use of human aortic elastin hydrolyzed by a chemical procedure(More)
A very rare--casuistic--case of endometriosis is presented, which appeared ten years after surgical menopause (hysterectomy and ovariectomy) without concomitant use of hormone replacement therapy or phytoestrogens. The possibilities of endogenous production and exogenous supply of estrogens in the female organism are discussed as well as the possible causes(More)
AIM To establish the incidence of vaginal operative deliveries by extraction of the fetus with forceps and the degree of prematurity of newborns in which it is applied, to specify the type of forceps which is imposed. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 672 births, completed by extraction of the fetus with forceps in the period 1994-2008 year in(More)
The effect of cobalt on the cardiovascular system is one of many aspects of cobalt metabolism in humans. Elastin and collagen are the main proteins of the vascular wall. The aims of this study were: 1) to determine serum cobalt concentrations in children with hypertension; and 2) to study the correlation between serum cobalt and some biological markers of(More)
The advances in perinatal medicine during the last decades lead to a reduction in neonatal mortality rates in risk newborns and a gradual lowering of the gestational age when survival is possible to 22 weeks of gestation. In the present survey we are making a review of the studies about the survival and the prognosis in neonates with very low birth weight(More)
