Objective:The aim of this study was to describe maternal central hemodynamic parameters before and during delivery as well at the early puerperium in healthy women undergoing elective cesarean section (CS) at term.Study Design:The noninvasive Cardiac System (NICaS, NI Medical, Petah-Tikva, Israel) is a regional impedance device that measures cardiac output(More)
PURPOSE We sought to assess long-term changes in the flow parameters of retrobulbar vessels in diabetic patients. METHODS The retrobulbar circulation of 138 eyes was evaluated between 1994 and 1995 and 36 eyes were reevaluated between 2004 and 2008 (study group). They were divided into four groups: eyes of diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study is to assess the reliability of the cardiac index (CI) in healthy pregnant women at term by investigating the correlation between the cardiac output (CO) and the body surface area (BSA) using a novel non-invasive cardiography technique (NICaS™). METHODS Sixty-one healthy, normotensive women with a singleton pregnancy(More)
63 nonagenarians (average age 93, range 90-97 years) were operated on between 1987-90 (twice or more in 8, total number of operations 75). 29 were done under general anesthesia, 17 epidural, 15 spinal, and 14 local. Mortality in the 6-month postoperative period was 17%; all deaths were within 35 days. Average postoperative mortality was higher among(More)
OBJECTIVE Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is known to be associated with fetal complications. It recently was suggested to be associated possibly with preeclampsia (PET) as well. The objective of this study was to investigate that possibility. STUDY DESIGN The study group included 78 women (54 singleton and 24 twin pregnancies) who had been(More)
We evaluated the efficacy of an oral formulation of 5-amino-salicylic acid in lowering the relapse rate after remission of Crohn's disease. Included were 59 patients who had proven Crohn's disease of at least 1 year's duration, and who had been in continuous remission for at least 6 months, while taking only 5-aminosalicylic acid or no therapy at all.(More)
Differences in hemodynamic changes during a cesarean section (CS) between twin and singleton pregnancies are poorly defined. The Non-Invasive Cardiac System (NICaS) is an impedance device that measures cardiac output (CO) and its derivatives. We compared maternal cardiac parameters using NICaS™ in singleton and twins before and during delivery, as well at(More)
