The incidence of triplet pregnancies has increased several times due to the widespread use of ovulation induction agents. Premature delivery is the main complication of triplet gestations. In twin conceptions it was shown definitely that elective cervical suture does not prolong these pregnancies. However, in higher order multifetal gestations the uterus is(More)
Fetal movements in utero are an expression of fetal well-being. However, a sudden increase of fetal movements is a sign of acute fetal distress, such as in cases of cord complications or abruptio placentae. Decreased fetal movements are seen in cases of chronic fetal distress such as preeclampsia, hypertension in pregnancy, etc. It was shown that in these(More)
Fetal movements (FM) may be spontaneous, originating in the fetus itself, or evoked, caused by external stimuli. The FM in 21 normal twin pregnancies at 10 and 21 weeks of gestation were studied. The percentage rate of evoked FM which occur simultaneously in both twins was 4.96% of all observed FM. The rate of the spontaneous FM which occur independently in(More)
Fetal movements (FM) may be spontaneous, originating in the fetus itself, or evoked by external stimuli. The relative rate of spontaneous and evoked FM has not yet been documented. As it is impossible to differentiate in a singleton pregnancy between these types of movements - the natural model of twin pregnancy was used. The FM of 10 normal twin(More)
The problem of retrograde seeding of endometrial tissue fragments to the peritoneum was investigated by injecting fluids through the cervical canal into the uterus before and after curettage. Fluid samples were collected from the peritoneal cavity through a laparoscope. Endometrial glands were detected in almost all of the fluids samples, and seeding was(More)
Thromboplastic activity of amniotic fluid (TAAF) was determined in 97 normal and pathologic pregnancies using a modification of Quick's one-stage method for prothrombin time. It was shown that amniotic fluid (AF) has thromboplastic activity. This activity was found to increase with the progression of pregnancy, showing a very high correlation coefficient (r(More)
