OBJECTIVE To investigate the consequences of IGF proteins dysfunction in development of endometrial adenocarcinomas. METHODS The expression of IGF 2 and IGF 1R was correlated with the expression of IGF 2R and apoptosis rate in 59 human endometrial adenocarcinomas, 10 endometrial hyperplasias and 7 normal tissues. The presence of mutations in the IGF 2R(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of cryopreservation medium and freezing-thawing techniques on human sperm motility and morphology. STUDY DESIGN 63 semen samples were obtained from 39 donors to the artificial insemination programme. Possible effects of the sperm dilution with cryomedium on the motility were examined 10 min after exposure of 24 high(More)
AIM: To determine the perifollicular vascular network and blood flow changes of the dominant preovulatory follicle using quantitative three-dimensional (3D) power Doppler analysis. METHODS: A total of 21 cycles were studied in spontaneously ovulating women who underwent folliculometry and 3D power Doppler angiography of perifollicular blood flow of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a unique case of hyperreactio luteinalis in pregnancy associated with ovarian torsion and subsequent development of hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count (HELLP) syndrome. DESIGN Case report. SETTING University medical center. PATIENT(S) A 34-year-old primigravida woman with ovarian torsion in 13 weeks of(More)
The authors gathered 20 patients having Swyer's syndrome and performed a bilateral gonadectomy and carried out a pathohistologic evaluation of the streak gonads. A more frequent occurrence of streak gonad tumors was found together with the possibility of tracing the merge gonadoblastoma into dysgerminoma (the youngest patient was 15 years old). In 95% of(More)

Separately are presented the guidelines for abnormal(More)
Pregnancy is a risk factor for venous insufficiency. Up to 30 percent of women will develop venous insufficiency during their first pregnancy, and with each next pregnancy its prevalence is higher. Several pathophysiologic mechanisms are involved in the pathophysiology of venous insufficiency during pregnancy. The role of these mechanisms in the(More)

The aim of this review is to analyze the relationship between the preovulatory progesterone (P) rise and the in vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancy outcome. It also investigates the sources and effects of P level increase, including the underlying mechanisms and potential strategies in preventing its elevation during ovarian stimulation. The origin of(More)
