Therapeutic decisions based on ultrasonography alone were compared to those obtained after MR imaging. Discordant(More)

Adverse first and third trimester fetal outcome were recently highlighted by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) viral DNA detection. Parvovirus does(More)
In cases of serious bleeding postpartum, resuscitation and surgical techniques are complementary and should be adapted to both the etiology and severity of bleeding. In extremely severe cases, the performance of a hysterectomy should not be delayed. For women with stable hemodynamic status, so-called "conservative" surgical techniques can instead be used.(More)
