OBJECTIVE To evaluate fetal cardiac ventricular disproportion as a marker of cardiac anomalies. METHODS A retrospective case series included data from all patients who had a fetus diagnosed subjectively with ventricular disproportion by routine obstetric ultrasonography between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2013 at a single tertiary center in the USA.(More)
AIM The goal of this study was to investigate the combined effects of raloxifene and atorvastatin in aged ovariectomized rats during endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerotic process. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study was conducted on 28 Wistar albino female rats randomly divided into four groups. All groups were ovariectomized and one group was kept as(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with morbidly adherent placenta (MAP) are under risk of massive bleeding. It readily necessitates very complicated surgery and massive blood transfusion, and even leads to mortality. Cesarean hysterectomy (CH) is the procedure that is acknowledged worldwide, since it helps to minimize complications. CASE PRESENTATION A patient with(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy (TLH-BS) and total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingectomy (TAH-BS) on ovarian function among women of reproductive age. STUDY DESIGN One hundred and three patients with a diagnosis of benign uterine disorder were divided into two groups in this(More)
We read the presented case of retained invasive placenta mimicked gestational choriocarcinoma (GCC)with an enthusiasm [1]. We thought if this is a case of GCC, which sign should be the leading sign. The clinical diagnosis ofGCC is challenging inmost of the cases. The predominant symptom is abnormal vaginal bleeding. Serum human chorionic gonadotropin beta(More)
BACKGROUND It is theorized that adipokines play a critical role in the pathophysiology of preeclampsia, particularly with their pro-inflammatory and inflammatory features. AIM To investigate serum leptin levels in pregnancies complicated with preeclampsia and severe preeclampsia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Maternal serum leptin levels were analyzed by solid(More)
OBJECTIVE Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) complicates pregnancies which is characterized by elevated serum bile acid levels. ICP increases maternal and fetal morbidities. This study was designed to determine the association of maternal and fetal complications and serum bile acid levels. MATERIAL AND METHOD Maternal and fetal characteristics(More)
OBJECTIVE To assign tendency to thrombosis in patients with preeclampsia and inherited thrombophilia using thromboelastography (TEG), and therefore to evaluate possible relationship between thrombophilia and preeclampsia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Kinetics of clot formation was assessed with TEG analyzer in 49 patients with severe preeclampsia, 54 cases with(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to compare the outcomes of expectant management of pregnancy or immediate delivery in patients with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) between 24+0 and 32+0 weeks of pregnancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a retrospective cohort study conducted at a tertiary medical center. Patients who were diagnosed as having PPROM(More)
AIM To investigate the expression of Wilms' tumor 1 (WT1) protein in endometrial adenocarcinoma (EC) and endometrial intra-epithelial neoplasia (EIN). METHODS WT1 protein expression was determined on immunohistochemistry in 30 EC patients and in 20 EIN patients. WT1 protein expression in proliferative (n = 7), secretory (n = 9) and atrophic endometrium (n(More)
