OBJECTIVE To report our experience with the management of triplet pregnancies complicated by an acardiac fetus. METHODS During the 5-year period from 2003 to 2008, five cases were identified. The prenatal sonographic findings, antepartum course, antenatal intervention if performed, and perinatal outcome of each case were reviewed. RESULTS Four(More)
Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) with high energy electron beams is a treatment modality that has been included in multimodal programs in oncology to improve local tumor control. From August 1991 to December 1993, 17 patients with primary (8) or recurrent (9) high grade malignant gliomas, anaplastic astrocytoma (4), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (6)(More)

A new method for management of the umbilical cord prolapse is presented: the bladder of the patient is filled with 500 to 700 ml of saline solution through a catheter, the bladder produce the upward displacement of the fetal head and soon proceed to cesarean section, this method reduce the maternal risks and the perinatal mortality. Four case reports are(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe a new technique for Doppler waveform quantification of the fetal umbilical artery, the half peak systolic velocity (h-PSV) deceleration time, which measures the time that it takes a single flow velocity waveform to halve its maximum systolic velocity. As this measurement is independent of fetal heart rate, its role in the evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the umbilical artery (UA) half-peak systolic velocity deceleration time (hPSV-DT) in pregnancies complicated by fetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS The study included 266 singleton, high-risk pregnancies with an estimated fetal weight <10th percentile, which were examined between 24 and 40 weeks' gestation and delivered within a(More)
