The potential tocolytic effect of natural progesterone administration on premature labor was investigated in a double-blind study. An oral progesterone formulation was used because its ability to increase both plasma and myometrial concentration of progesterone in pregnant women had been previously demonstrated. Furthermore, no commercial intravenous or(More)
225 women aged less than 18 years of age at the start of their pregnancies were seen in the Saint Antoine Hospital between July 1977 and December 1983 (1.2%). These pregnancies were studied using data-processing. From the sociological angle there were two main groups. There were on-dwelling French women (29.3%) and African women (27.1%). These groups could(More)
The authors describe this operation, which is carried out as a single procedure which they have been doing since 1982. Then the results in 90 patients are studied. The post-operative controls carried out on the clinical state of the patient and on the urodynamic tests show that this operation is very successful, both in curing stress incontinence and in(More)
A study on dietary and smoking behavior during pregnancy was performed between January, 1976, and September, 1979, at the St. Antoine Maternity Hospital in Paris. In addition to the routine clinical examinations at the third, sixth, eight, and ninth months of pregnancy, the women were systematically questioned about their dietary and tobacco habits. No(More)
The effects of oral micronized progesterone on the endometrium and bleeding pattern have been assessed in a multicenter study of 101 postmenopausal patients. During a minimum of 6 cycles, the participants received either percutaneous 17 beta-estradiol (1.5 mg/day) associated with micronized progesterone (100 mg/day), given at bedtime for 21/28 days or 25(More)
Platelet serotonin content was measured by high pressure liquid chromatography in 56 peri- and postmenopausal women, in order to study variations of this parameter with hormonal status and depressive mood symptoms. Clinical symptoms were assessed by a self-report depression symptom scale (CES-D of NIMH). Thirty-eight women with a score of 16 or more were(More)
In a series of 818 patients treated with indomethacin during pregnancy, the rate of perinatal complications was 1.8%. The risk was increased to 13% if indomethacin was being taken at the time of delivery, and when treatment was prolonged. The serious nature of certain complications (persistence of fetal circulation and oligo/anuria) means that indomethacin(More)
The relief of post-episiotomy pain was investigated in three groups of women, ranked ASA 1 or 2, using either a single dose of 400 mg of ibuprofen (n = 31), or 1 g of paracetamol (n = 28) or placebo (n = 31). Pain intensity was assessed with a visual analogic scale, a verbal scale and pain relief scores after half an hour, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 h. The day(More)
Plasma luteinizing hormone (LH-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and beta-hCG activities were measured during the late luteal phase in 321 cycles of 147 infertile women. In 71 cycles the hCG measurement permitted the diagnosis of pregnancy between the 10th and 14th days after the thermal nadir. The slope of the regression line derived from hCG levels(More)
