Alcohol consumption and smoking during pregnancy is common, despite the known adverse effects of these drugs on fetal development. Though studies on the effects of each drug separately are published, little is known about the effect of concurrent use of alcohol and nicotine in humans or in preclinical models. In this report, we examined the impact of(More)
Ethanol consumption and smoking during pregnancy are common, despite the known adverse effects on the fetus. The teratogenicity of each drug independently is well established; however, the effects of concurrent exposure to ethanol and nicotine in preclinical models remain unclear. This study examined the impact of simultaneous prenatal exposure to both(More)

Importance Metabolic changes after maternal bariatric surgery may affect subsequent fetal development. Many relevant perinatal outcomes have not been studied in this postoperative population, and the risks associated with short operation-to-birth (OTB) intervals have not been well examined. Objective To examine the risk for perinatal complications in(More)

Background When placenta accreta complicates a delivery, the typical management is to perform a cesarean hysterectomy. Other management strategies, including leaving the placenta in situ, have been attempted and supported in some cases. This may allow for an interval hysterectomy, which can potentially decrease average blood loss and/or allow a minimally(More)
Die Erfassung von Schmerzen ist fester Bestandteil eines adäquaten Schmerzmanagements. Während viele Erkenntnisse zur Relevanz, Nutzung und Validität der verschiedenen Skalen existieren, ist die Sichtweise der Patienten bei der Schmerzerhebung im deutschsprachigen Raum bis dato nie untersucht worden. Ziel der vorliegenden Studie ist es, die Perspektive der(More)
Objective: To compare the rate of preterm delivery in patients who had an amniocentesis before and after 20 weeks gestation. Study Design: This is a single-center retrospective cohort study of patients referred for specialized sonogram between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2009. Outcomes of patients who underwent amniocentesis at less than 20 0/7 weeks(More)
UNLABELLED CONSTRUCT: Decentralized clinical education is the use of community facilities and community physicians to educate medical students. The theory behind decentralized clinical education is that academic and community sites will provide educational equivalency as determined by objective and subjective performance measures, while training more(More)
