We evaluated diabetes-related pregnancy outcomes in a cohort of Spanish women in relation to their glucose tolerance status, prepregnancy BMI and other predictive variables. The present paper is part of a prospective study to evaluate the impact of American Diabetes Association (2000) criteria in the Spanish population. A total of 9,270 pregnant women were(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate whether the risk of macrosomia, large for gestational age (LGA) and small for gestational age (SGA) is influenced by maternal body mass index and glucose tolerance differently in male and female fetuses. METHODS A population study was conducted in 16 general hospitals from the Spanish National Health Service that included 9270(More)
This study was carried out to determine the impact of American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2000 criteria for the diagnosis of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in the Spanish population. Pregnant women were assigned to one of four categories: negative screenees, false-positive screenees, ADA-only-GDM (untreated) and GDM according to National Diabetes Data(More)
A 27-year-old woman with a GH-secreting pituitary macroadenoma was treated with continuous s.c. infusion of octreotide prior to surgical resection. Subsequently, she was found to be 6 months pregnant. Fetal echographs were normal, the newborn had no malformation, and postnatal development was normal.
AIM To compare pregnancy outcome and factors related to adverse perinatal outcome in women with type 1 versus type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). MATERIAL AND METHODS Multicentre retrospective study. Some 404 women were studied, 257 with type 1 DM and 147 with type 2 DM. Main outcome measures were rates of prematurity, macrosomia, instrumental deliveries,(More)
UNLABELLED Objetive: identify whether there is an increased risk of adverse perinatal outcomes, like prematurity or decreased weight in newborns, associated with caffeine consumption during the first half of pregnancy in pregnant women of our population. METHODS transversal study carried out in 1 175 patients from Virgen de las Nieves University Hospital(More)
OBJECTIVE Age at natural menopause (ANM) can be considered a complex parameter that depends on the interaction of multiple factors. In the present study, the role of interaction between genetic variants within estrogen synthesis and signalling pathways in the ANM in Spanish women is studied. MATERIAL AND METHODS Nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the serum levels of FSH, LH, PRL, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone in umbilical vein blood in a group of normal neonates. METHOD Umbilical vein blood was obtained for serum analyses from 52 newborns (25 females and 27 males) in the Maternity of the Hospital Regional Virgen de las Nieves, Granada (Spain) and means were(More)
Determining the magnitude and importance of patient safety-related incidents and the effectiveness of measures to improve patient safety (PS) are high-priority goals in efforts to improve the quality of obstetric care. The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the MRF1-OBST screening guide in detecting adverse events in women who received(More)
BACKGROUND External quality assessment is essential in modern andrology laboratories. To assess the proficiency of laboratories participating in an external quality assessment programme (EQAP), limits for acceptable variability must be determined. Limits currently specified largely depend on criteria set by the organizers of individual EQAP schemes. The(More)
