Body composition during normal pregnancy: reference ranges
Abstract.Maternal body composition undergoes a deep adaptative change during the course of pregnancy. Fat mass, fat-free mass, and total body water (TBW) increase in different ways and their effectsExpand
Fetal subcutaneous tissue thickness (SCTT) in healthy and gestational diabetic pregnancies
To determine reference values of fetal subcutaneous tissue thickness (SCTT) throughout gestation in a healthy population and to compare them with those from a population of pregnant women withExpand
Carbetocin versus oxytocin in caesarean section with high risk of post-partum haemorrhage.
OBJECTIVES the aims of the present study were to compare the haemodynamic effects of oxytocin and carbetocin and to assess the efficacy of these two drugs in terms of blood loss and the additionalExpand
Could birthweight prediction models be improved by adding fetal subcutaneous tissue thickness?
Aim:  The aims of the study were to: (i) compare the accuracy of standard ultrasonic algorithms in the estimation of fetal weight and; (ii) test two new algorithms in order to improve the globalExpand
Intrauterine growth restriction and fetal body composition
To assess the differences in fetal body compartments between fetuses with normal growth and those with reduced intrauterine growth, during the third trimester, through ultrasonographic determinationExpand
Abnormal maternal cardiac function and morphology in pregnancies complicated by intrauterine fetal growth restriction
To explore maternal cardiac function through an echocardiographic evaluation, in a group of nulliparous patients with intrauterine fetal growth restriction during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Maternal Diastolic Dysfunction and Left Ventricular Geometry in Gestational Hypertension
Abstract—The objective of this study was to evaluate diastolic parameters and left ventricular geometry in gestational hypertension. Twenty-one consecutive pregnant women with gestationalExpand
Double inherited thrombophilias and adverse pregnancy outcomes: Fashion or science?
Aim:  To determine to what extent double inherited thrombophilias are associated with adverse obstetric complications correlated with fetoplacental insufficiency, such as preeclampsia, hemolyticExpand
Mean platelet volume: Association with adverse neonatal outcome
The aim of the study was to investigate on a possible association between maternal mean platelet volume (MPV) and oxygen-metabolic changes in pregnancies affected by altered maternal-fetal DopplerExpand
Maternal diastolic function in asymptomatic pregnant women with bilateral notching of the uterine artery waveform at 24 weeks' gestation: a pilot study
To study second‐trimester maternal cardiac adaptation in asymptomatic patients at risk, on the basis of abnormal uterine artery Doppler, for the development of gestational hypertension or having aExpand
