OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to determine the value of serial ultrasonographic cervical length (CL) measurements after cerclage to predict preterm delivery. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective ultrasonographic and outcome data from singleton pregnancies with cerclage were reviewed. Using transvaginal ultrasound (TVS), overall CL obtained before(More)
OBJECTIVE Inflammation on Papanicolaou (Pap) smear has been associated with a 30-50% incidence of bacterial vaginosis (BV), a recognized risk factor for preterm delivery. We determined whether inflammation on Pap smear is associated with preterm delivery. STUDY DESIGN 5,348 cases were studied with complete prenatal data including the potential confounder(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the risk of aneuploidy in cases of isolated choroid plexus cysts (CPCs) and to compare the risk when associated with minor or major anomalies. METHODS All fetuses with CPCs and known karyotype were identified. CPCs were categorized as 'isolated' or associated with minor or major sonographic anomalies. Preexisting risk factors for(More)
BACKGROUND Intrauterine infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV) has been associated with a significant number of neonatal HSV infections. When these infections begin in utero, the associated morbidity is more severe, and treatment regimens may be less effective. CASE A 24-year-old nullipara with an abnormal triple screen and multiple ultrasound(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of cordocentesis for predicting fetal thrombocytopenia in the presence of maternal thrombocytopenia. STUDY DESIGN We studied platelet counts obtained by cordocentesis from 42 consecutive immune thrombocytopenia purpura patients. Platelet counts were obtained on 36 neonates, and the statistical analysis included only(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of isoimmunized pregnancies managed primarily by middle cerebral artery peak systolic velocity. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective chart review was conducted of isoimmunized pregnancies that underwent ultrasound examinations from January 1, 2001, through May 1, 2003. Ultrasound reports,(More)
