OBJECTIVE To study modalities and complications of intrauterine exchange transfusion (IUET) for the management of severe fetal anaemia. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study of all IUET procedures performed between January 1999 and January 2012 at a regional centre. Characteristics of each procedure were studied to identify risk factors for complications.(More)
OBJECTIVE Prenatal diagnosis of esophageal atresia (EA) remains a challenge. Our objective was to evaluate the combination of sonography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and amniotic fluid biochemical markers in prenatal diagnosis of EA. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of all cases with prenatal suspicion of EA from January 2008 to May 2013 in our(More)
OBJECTIVE Our study aimed at (1) evaluating neonatal treatment and outcome of neonates with either a prenatal or a postnatal diagnosis of esophageal atresia (EA) and (2) analyzing the impact of prenatal diagnosis on outcome based on the type of EA. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a population-based study using data from the French National Register for infants(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Several studies have shown the benefits of delayed cord clamping (DCC) in preterm and in healthy newborns at short and long term. Our objective was to evaluate the potentials benefits and risks of DCC in red cell alloimmunization. METHODS This was a comparative before/after study of all living born neonates followed after fetal(More)
OBJECTIVES There is little information about the impact of hyperglycaemia in twin pregnancies. The objective of our study was to evaluate the maternal, foetal and neonatal complications in patients with twin pregnancy and glucose intolerance defined by gestational diabetes mellitus and gestational mild hyperglycaemia. STUDY DESIGN We performed a(More)
OBJECTIVES To provide management guidelines for labour and delivery in women with gestational diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS A literature search was performed using the PubMed and Cochrane databases. Foreign societies guidelines were also consulted. RESULTS There is no additional information from recent studies that supports changing current French(More)
OBJECTIVE Toxoplasmosis is a cosmopolitan zoonose led by an intracellular protozoon, Toxoplasma gondii. Severe fetal consequences can be encountered in case of infection during pregnancy. Since 1978, a specific screening program has been implemented in France during pregnancy. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the fetal consequences of a maternal(More)
The cellular and molecular basis for the difference in ability of BCG to induce tolerance in BALB/c and DBA/2 mice has been examined by in vitro biofiltration. It was found that incubation with the adherent cells from BALB/c but not DBA/2 spleens could remove the material from BGG which inhibited tolerance induction in BALB/c mice. This material was shown(More)
Both the improvement of pathophysiological knowledge of major fetal anomalies and the development of therapeutic tools have allowed in some specific cases in utero therapy by foetoscopy. We discuss the state of art and recent advances for four major anomalies: twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, myelomeningocele and lower(More)
CONTEXT Hysteroscopy is one of the most common gynaecological procedure. Training for diagnostic and operative hysteroscopy can be achieved through numerous previously described models like animal models or virtual reality simulation. We present our novel combined model associating virtual reality and bovine uteruses and bladders. STUDY DESIGN End year(More)
