OBJECTIVE To evaluate if idiopathic spontaneous preterm delivery is associated with abnormal uteroplacental circulation, as assessed by Doppler velocimetry. METHODS The study was carried out on 417 women who had Doppler velocimetry performed between 25-36 weeks' gestation and were subsequently delivered vaginally. The systolic-diastolic ratio (S/D) was(More)
Following the incidental diagnosis of triventricular hydrocephalus in a fetus 34 weeks after the mother's last menstrual period, during an uneventful pregnancy, 1.5-T brain magnetic resonance (MR) was carried out. A subependymal hemorrhage, which had not been revealed by transabdominal ultrasound, was found; this finding was confirmed by neonatal brain(More)
The usefulness of the intravenous dipyridamole-echocardiography test (12-lead and two-dimensional [2-D] echo monitoring during dipyridamole infusion) in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease recently has been suggested. However, the intravenous form of dipyridamole is not available for clinical use in some countries and therefore the administration of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of cerebral velocimetry as a predictor of perinatal outcome in high-risk pregnancies. METHODS Middle cerebral artery pulsatility index was measured in 576 high-risk pregnancies undergoing umbilical velocimetry. The results of both tests were evaluated with respect to the birth of small for gestational age (SGA) infants and(More)
In order to compare the efficacy of oral lidoflazine (240 mg/die) and oral quinidine (1200 mg/die) in re-establishing sinus rhythm, we studied 115 patients (mean age 63.8 years; range 32-91) with atrial fibrillation of recent onset (less than 3 months). Patients with cardiac failure, acute myocardial infarction, severe intraventricular conduction(More)
