OBJECTIVE To examine the association of uterine artery (UtA) Doppler indices and cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) on perinatal outcome at term. METHODS This retrospective cohort study conducted in a single tertiary referral centre included all singleton pregnancies undergoing ultrasound assessment in the third trimester, which subsequently delivered at term.(More)
OBJECTIVE There are many issues concerning the assessment of older people from ethnic minority groups, the most significant being the language barrier experienced by those whose English is an additional language (EAL). This study aimed to test the hypothesis that EAL participants would score less well than those with English as a first language (EFL) on the(More)
BACKGROUND The increase in the prevalence of and the adverse risks to both mother and foetus associated with maternal obesity is a global concern. The adverse cardiovascular risk associated with obesity is well-known, however, there is a paucity of data assessing central haemodynamics in class 3 (morbid) obesity (BMI440 kg/m2) during pregnancy. OBJECTIVE(More)
The significance of antibodies directed against paternal epitopes in the context of obstetric disorders is discussed controversially. In this study anti-HLA and anti-MIC-A antibodies were analysed in sera of women with uneventful pregnancy (n = 101), preeclampsia (PE, n = 55) and gestational diabetes (GDM, n = 36) using antigen specific microbeads. While(More)
BACKGROUND Intrauterine hematomas are a common pregnancy complication. The literature lacks studies about outcomes based on hematoma localization. Thus, we aimed to compare pregnancies complicated by an intraplacental hematoma to cases with a retroplacental hematoma and to a control group. METHODS In a retrospective case-control study, 32 women with an(More)
BACKGROUND The ability to identify patients at risk for developing preeclampsia is important for preventing morbidity and mortality in both the mother and child. Although CYFRA 21-1 (a fragment of Cytokeratin 19) is considered a promising biomarker for diagnosing preeclampsia, little is known regarding the levels of CYFRA 21-1 during pregnancy. Here, we(More)
OBJECTIVE Maternal obesity is associated with significant pregnancy complications and is a risk factor for the development of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy as well as other adverse outcomes. There are few data regarding the hemodynamic aberrations observed in maternal obesity. The aim of this study was to investigate maternal hemodynamics in morbidly(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the fetal cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) in women presenting with reduced fetal movements (RFM). METHODS This is a retrospective cohort study conducted over a 7-year period at a Fetal Medicine Unit at a tertiary referral centre. 4500 singleton pregnancies presenting with RFM after 36 weeks' gestation and 1527 control pregnancies at(More)
