Following exit from meiosis I, mammalian oocytes immediately enter meiosis II without an intervening interphase, accompanied by rapid reassembly of a bipolar spindle that maintains condensed chromosomes in a metaphase configuration (metaphase II arrest). Here we study the effect of nicotinamide (NAM), a non-competitive pan-sirtuin inhibitor, during meiotic(More)
Acute dissection of the thoracic aorta (AAD) is a potentially catastrophic disease, with significant morbidity and mortality, which remain unchanged over the last decade. Survival rate has been shown to be directly related to prompt diagnosis and precise management; however diagnosis of the disease remains time-consuming, not readily available, and lacking(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether pregnant women with a normal 28-week gestation platelet count and no high-risk conditions for thrombocytopenia require a pre-epidural platelet count. All 1844 included women (platelet count > 150 × 10(9) /L at 28 weeks' gestation, term singleton birth, no thrombocytopenia risk conditions) had a platelet count > 100 ×(More)
BACKGROUND Owing to persisting donor shortages, the use of "marginal hearts" has increased. Because patients who receive a marginal heart may require hemodynamic support in the early post-operative period, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may be used until recovery of acute graft dysfunction. METHODS A retrospective file review of 124 primary(More)
BACKGROUND Embryo transfer (ET) is a vital part of the IVF process. While some studies have supported the hypothesis that ET difficulty alters success rate, others suggest the contrary. This large population study aimed to test this hypothesis, using a standardised ET grading system. METHODS ET data for fresh and frozen IVF/ICSI cycles between 2005 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether conception following assisted reproductive technology (ART) predisposes women to increased risk of postnatal depression (PND), compared to women who conceived naturally, when controlling for such factors as: multiple birth, previous maternal psychiatric history and sociodemographic status. PARTICIPANTS A total of 200 women(More)
AIM To reduce patient inconvenience during in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, some protocols delay intensive monitoring until mid-follicular stimulation. Others assess hormone levels prior to follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) administration, not commencing stimulation until baseline progesterone (P4) levels (< 5 nmol/l) are achieved. Higher P4 levels (>(More)
