To determine the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in diagnosing invasive placenta (IP). MRI findings in 32 women with suspected IP were evaluated independently by four readers. Interobserver agreement was calculated with kappa (κ) statistics. Associations between MRI findings and IP were assessed by univariate and multivariate analyses.(More)
AIMS To evaluate long-term anatomical and functional outcomes of the transobturator-infracoccygeal hammock repair for complex genital prolapse with a porcine collagen-coated polypropylene mesh. METHODS A prospective observational study comparing pre- and postoperative outcomes, using pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) measurements, pelvic floor(More)
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a potentially life-threatening condition, which needs multidisciplinary management. Uterine atony represents up to 80 % of all causes of PPH. Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) has now a well-established role in the management of severe PPH. TAE allows stopping the bleeding in 90 % of women with severe PHH, obviating(More)
Abnormal placental invasion can result in major obstetric haemorrhage during delivery. The most important risk factors are the following: previous caesarean delivery, placenta praevia maternal age over 35, smoking, previous myomectomy, dilatation and curettage. When placenta accreta is suspected on ultrasound, an RMI can complete the diagnostic. Therefore,(More)
To test whether variations in apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of uterine leiomyomas after uterine artery embolization (UAE) may correlate with outcome and assess the effects of UAE on leiomyomas and normal myometrium with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Data of 49 women who underwent pelvic MRI before and after UAE were retrospectively(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Mother-to-child (MTC) hepatitis B virus (HBV) transmission has been mainly studied in Asia. The geographical origins of women and HBV genotypes differ in Europe. The aims were to determine the rate and risk factors of MTC HBV transmission from women with high HBV DNA loads in a maternity hospital in Paris, France. METHODS Retrospective(More)
INTRODUCTION Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Mother-To-Child-Transmission (MTCT) and prevention by combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) have been extensively studied. Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) MTCT from HIV/HBV co-infected women and prevention by antiretroviral therapy with dual activity have been poorly studied. The aim of the study was to assess HBV(More)
CONTEXT The objective of our study was to estimate the impact of the precariousness on the quality of the care in antenatal diagnosis of the patients followed to Lariboisière (Parisian service of gynaecology obstetrics situated in a district of the capital discriminated socially) over a period of 3 months. PATIENTS All the patients undergoing a prenatal(More)
The development of conservative surgical approaches and interventionnal radiology for conservative treatment in cases of severe post-partum haemorrhage allows nowadays a preservation of the genital tract in most of the cases in developed countries. The consequences of these techniques for the future fertility and pregnancy outcome are not fully evaluated.(More)
OBJECTIVES The postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is the main cause of maternal mortality and is responsible in France every year of a quarter of the maternal deaths. We realized a study on the transfers for postpartum haemorrhage in 2008 and 2009 in a Reference center (Lariboisière Hospital). PATIENTS AND METHODS It is a descriptive retrospective study over a(More)
