The stimulating effect of estradiol (E2) on breast cell growth is well documented. However, the actions of progesterone (P) and its derivatives remain controversial. Additional information is therefore necessary. On a culture system of normal human breast epithelial (HBE) cells, we observed an inhibitory effect on cell growth of a long-term P treatment (7(More)
We present an original laparoscopic technique for treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women equivalent to the classical open approach described by Burch. This technique is particularly interesting because a wide pneumoretzius allows adequate access without being hindered by intestinal loops or the free border of the bladder. Suspension is achieved(More)
In the search for a breast cancer prevention strategy which would avoid undesirable effects of orally administered tamoxifen, the percutaneous administration of the highly active metabolite 4OHTamoxifen (4OHTam) has been proposed. Percutaneous 4OHTam penetrates the skin to reach breast tissues. It, thus, avoids the hepatic first pass effect, and offers an(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of maternal dexamethasone administration on umbilical and fetal cerebral artery flow velocity waveforms. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Robert Ballanger Hospital, Aulnay-sous-Bois, France. SAMPLE Twenty-six pregnant women with singleton pregnancies considered at risk(More)
A case is reported of bilateral internal iliac artery ligation during cesarean delivery for intractable hemorrhage. Uterine artery Doppler flow velocity waveforms were documented before and after the procedure. After the ligation the uterine arteries could still be visualized in the appropriate anatomic location, and no changes in Doppler flow velocity(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the presence of cervico-vaginal prolactin during pregnancy is significantly associated with preterm delivery. STUDY DESIGN A cohort of 64 pregnant women between 21 and 34 weeks of amenorrhea underwent a washing of the exocervix and vaginal fornices with a normal saline solution. The fluid was then aspirated and centrifuged.(More)
Placental microvessels examined by transmission electron microscopy showed many pericytes and pericyte foot processes included in the basement membrane. The foot processes were distinct from the endothelial cell extensions because of their lighter staining, their content of reticulum endoplasmic, their scarcity of microfilaments and their separation from(More)
