The objective of this study was to compare mesh erosion after transvaginal repair of cystocele using Gynemesh or Gynemesh-Soft mesh. We retrospectively analyzed 138 consecutive cases of transvaginal repair of cystocele using synthetic mesh. The study endpoint was the pathological evidence of vaginal erosion. Multiple logistic regression was used to(More)
FOXC1 deletion, duplication, and mutations are associated with Axenfeld-Rieger anomaly, and Dandy-Walker malformation spectrum. We describe the clinical history, physical findings, and available brain imaging studies in three fetuses, two children, and one adult with 6p25 deletions encompassing FOXC1. Various combinations of ocular and cerebellar(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether sonography can be used to distinguish hyperthyroidism from hypothyroidism in pregnancies with fetal goiter. METHODS This was a retrospective study of 39 cases of fetal goiter. The majority of the mothers had Graves' disease. Fetuses were scanned for the existence of a hypertrophic thyroid gland (goiter) beginning at 22(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe management of vaginal mesh erosion following transvaginal repair of acystocele by placement of a polypropylene mesh. MATERIALS AND METHOD Retrospective analysis of 34 consecutive cases of vaginal mesh erosion following transvaginal repair of cystocele using synthetic mesh (Gynemesh or Gynemesh-Soft). We have analyzed the results of(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of a new uterine compression suturing technique in reducing postpartum haemorrhage secondary to severe uterine atony. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING University hospital between December 2000 and March 2006. POPULATION Twenty women with uterine atony and postpartum bleeding that did not react to usual medical(More)
Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare, unpredictable and often lethal complication of pregnancy and childbirth. Because of its variable presentation, an early biologic test would help to establish the diagnosis. We investigated in maternal serum 4 components of amniotic fluid, i.e., alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), l'insuline like growth factor binding protein-1(More)
Using previously described techniques, various new 1-amino-substituted 5H-pyrido[4,3-b]indoles (gamma-carbolines, gamma-C) and 5H-benzo[e]pyrido[4,3-b]indoles (BPI) have been synthesized and evaluated. For known compounds containing a 1-[(dimethylamino)propyl] group, 1a and 1b in the gamma-C series and 2 in the BPI series are the most active. Studies with(More)
The synthesis of a series of 35 substituted 3,4-diphenyl quinolines and isoquinolines is described. The majority of these molecules differ from all other triphenylethylene based antiestrogens by a different spatial location of the aminoalkyl side chain. The binding affinity of the most representative molecules (8, 9, 19, 20, 21, 23 and 25), including(More)
The N-Boc O-tert-butyldimethysilyl-substituted hexa-beta-peptide methyl ester 18 was constructed from the O-TBS ether of (-)-(2R, 3S)-phenylisoserine. By NMR, it was determined that this homo beta-peptide adopts a highly stable beta-strand-type secondary structure in chloroform solution, which is stabilized by both hydrophobic interactions involving the(More)
