BACKGROUND Predictive factors of damage to the Fallopian tube may guide the treatment for patients with tubal pregnancy. The aim of this study was to assess the predictive value of the following parameters: gestational age, serum beta-hCG concentrations and ultrasound findings. METHODS A total of 105 patients with ampullary pregnancy undergoing(More)
The incidence of ectopic pregnancy has been increasing over the last few years, reaching a value of 1 case in 80 pregnancies, and it continues to be the main cause of maternal death during the first trimester in the United States. The main causes of tubal ectopic pregnancy, which generally results from damage to or dysfunction of the fallopian tubes, are(More)
The introduction of highly sensitive methods, such as transvaginal sonography and measurement of serum b-human chorionic gonadotropin, has dramatically improved ectopic pregnancy diagnosis in recent years. Early diagnosis is the key to successful and conservative management of women with ectopic pregnancy; however, approximately 50 percent of such women are(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the association between the depth of trophoblastic penetration into the tubal wall with serum concentrations of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and β-hCG and to assess its predictive value. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary care university hospital. PATIENT(S) Thirty patients with ampullary pregnancy undergoing(More)
Ectopic pregnancy (EP) is the fourth most frequent cause of maternal death in the United Kingdom, and it is the main cause of maternal death during the first trimester in the United States. The Fallopian tubes are the most frequently affected site by EP. The main causes of tubal pregnancy are salpingitis, previous tubal surgeries, and alteration in tubal(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between ductus venosus (DV) Doppler velocimetry and fetal cardiac troponin T (cTnT). STUDY DESIGN Between March 2007 and March 2008, 89 high-risk pregnancies were prospectively studied. All patients delivered by cesarean section and the Doppler exams were performed on the same day. Multiple(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) and uterine curettage (D and C) for first trimester abortions, in terms of the efficiency of eliminating ovular remnants, frequency of complications, duration of the procedure, and duration of patients' hospitalization. METHODS In a prospective study, 50 patients in the MVA group and 50 in the D&C group(More)
