Routine anatomic ultrasound performed in the second trimester has a detection rate of approximately 70-90% for fetal congenital abnormalities (Nyberg and Souter, J Ultrasound Med 2001;6:655-674). The central nervous system abnormalities are one of the most common ones detected. Chiari malformation is among the CNS abnormalities diagnosed in the fetal period(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the applicability and reliability of color Doppler ultrasonography (US) for distinguishing a uterine myoma from a focal myometrial contraction. STUDY DESIGN Images from 36 patients with uterine thickenings were classified as myomas when color Doppler US demonstrated no centralized flow with a circumscribed vessel pattern at the(More)
We sought to create a transcervical chorionic villus sampling model for teaching that would mimic a lifelike model. A model was created using silicone resembling the maternal interface. A cervix with an endocervical canal able to accommodate a catheter and a vagina was also created. Tap water was used as the amniotic fluid. Chorionic villus sampling was(More)
Foetal premature atrial contractions (PACs) are the most commonly encountered and also the most benign foetal arrhythmia. A retrospective cohort study was conducted with the objective to assess whether the presence of foetal breathing was associated with the presence of foetal PACs. A further objective was to evaluate whether this association would affect(More)
BACKGROUND Ductus arteriosus constriction is a known complication of exposure to indomethacin in utero. Nonimmune hydrops associated with indomethacin use has been reported in only six cases, all twins over 32 weeks' gestation. CASE We present a case of fetal hydrops associated with tricuspid regurgitation and ductal constriction developing within 30(More)
