Novel 3‐Dimensional Placental Measurements in Early Pregnancy as Predictors of Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes
In addition to volume, 3‐dimensional sonography allows for novel techniques to measure other aspects of gross placental morphologic characteristics and CI, which can yield promising biologically plausible early predictors of fetal growth and adverse perinatal outcome. Expand
Placental Morphologic Features and Chorionic Surface Vasculature at Term Are Highly Correlated With 3‐Dimensional Sonographic Measurements at 11 to 14 Weeks
The purpose of this study was to examine the potential for 3‐dimensional sonographic measurement of the early placenta in predicting ultimate placental morphologic features at delivery.
Valve disease in pregnancy.
The management of the various types of valve diseases in pregnancy will be reviewed here, along with a discussion of related complications including mechanical prosthetic valves and infective endocarditis. Expand
Does the rate of cervical shortening after cerclage predict preterm birth?*
The rate of cervical shortening after cerclage placement is associated with the risk of SPTB and may be useful in assessing risk for SPTB in patients with cerclages. Expand
The effect of intramuscular progesterone on the rate of cervical shortening.
Cervical shortening among women with previous preterm delivery occurs at a similar rate, regardless of exposure to 17-OHPC, according to the modeled rate of cervical shortening. Expand
Vaginal progesterone in women with twin gestations complicated by short cervix: a retrospective cohort study
To determine whether the use of vaginal progesterone in twin gestations with a cervical length (CL) of ≤2.5 cm is associated with a reduced risk of preterm delivery.
Effect of cervical cerclage on rate of cervical shortening
Evaluated whether cerclage affects the rate of cervical shortening taking into account exposure to 17‐hydroxyprogesterone and vaginal progesterone in a high‐risk patient population. Expand
Vaginal fetal fibronectin as a predictor of spontaneous preterm delivery in triplet gestations
Fetal fibronectin testing provides moderate to high prediction of spontaneous preterm birth in triplet gestations and delivery within 2 and 3 weeks of testing. Expand
Early Biometric Lag in the Prediction of Small for Gestational Age Neonates and Preeclampsia
An early fetal growth lag may be a marker of future complications and the utility of early biometric variables in predicting adverse pregnancy outcomes is investigated. Expand
