This review provides timely information concerning clinical, surgical, and pathologic findings of adnexal torsion (AT). AT mostly occurs in the child-bearing age group, but is not uncommon in premenarchal girls or postmenopausal women. When AT is suspected, urgent surgical intervention is indicated, and is usually performed by laparoscopy. Incidence of AT(More)
Oocyte endowment dwindles away during prepubertal and adult life until menopause occurs, and apoptosis has been identified as a central mechanism responsible for oocyte elimination. A few recent reports suggest that uncontrolled inflammation may adversely affect ovarian reserve. We tested the possible role of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1 in the(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of young age on the outcome of teenage pregnancies by studying teenage deliveries in our unique population. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Retrospective chart review of teenage gravidas (age 19 and younger), who had delivered in our hospital. OUTCOME MEASURES Mode of delivery, gestational age at delivery,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of Arnica Montana and Bellis perennis on postpartum blood loss. DESIGN Double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, clinical trial. SETTING Department of Gynecology, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem. INTERVENTIONS Forty parturients were randomized to one of three groups: Arnica montana C6 and Bellis perennis C6(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Accurate measurement of the lateral ventricles is of paramount importance in prenatal diagnosis. Possible conflicting classifications caused by their measurement in different sectional planes by sonography and MR imaging are frequently raised. The objective of our study was to evaluate the agreement between ultrasonography and MR(More)
PURPOSE 1) To evaluate and classify the indications for fetal brain MRI in a tertiary referral center. 2) To assess the contribution of fetal brain MRI to fetal neurosonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective study in a tertiary medical center during a two-year period (2011 - 2012) included pregnant women who underwent fetal brain MRI. MRI was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Posterior fossa malformations are a common finding in prenatal diagnosis. The objectives of this study are to re-evaluate existing normal MR imaging biometric data of the fetal posterior fossa, suggest and evaluate new parameters, and demonstrate the possible clinical applications of these data. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a(More)
Vasomotion (rhythmic changes in arteriolar diameter) is believed to enhance tissue perfusion at low oxygenation levels. We hypothesized that slow breathing and vasomotion may correlate temporally ("coupling"), especially at low oxygenation levels. We paced down spontaneous breathing to about 5 or 6breaths/min in 14 healthy subjects using device-guided(More)
Purpose: Talipes equinovarus (TEV) is a common birth defect. Differentiation between isolated and complex TEV is fundamental due to its effect on prognosis. Association between TEV and poor neurological outcome is more prominent in complex cases and highlights the significance of brain evaluation. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the(More)
The authors evaluate a novel compression device for the treatment of lower extremity vascular disorders. Subjects were treated with a Sequential Contraction Compression Device and Popliteal Vein blood flow was measured. As a comparator, patients blood flow was also measured during passive plantarflexion/ dorsiflexion of the foot, and also during Electric(More)
