In 25 normally non-pregnant women, 543 normally pregnant women and 75 pregnant women with diabetes mellitus or gestational diabetes mellitus, the relationship between the serum concentration of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol (1-deoxy-glucose) and carbohydrate metabolism was studied. The concentration of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol was estimated by means of gas-liquid(More)
A fetus at 20 weeks' gestation was shown by ultrasonography to have ascites and intrahepatic calcifications. We aspirated the fetal ascites at 29 and 30 weeks' gestation to decompress the fetal lungs due to the progression of the ascites and the concomitant compression in the fetal lungs. The newborn had neither hypoplasia of the lungs nor any respiratory(More)
Prenatal diagnosis of an acardiac twin pregnancy was performed. At 30 gestational weeks, pulsed color Doppler ultrasound revealed polyhydramnios, reversed-pulsatile blood flow in the umbilical artery and vein of the acardiac twin, and artery-artery anastomosis on the placental surface. The total cardiac dimension, maximum blood flow velocity of the(More)
Recent advances in echocardiography have allowed the anatomical structure of the fetal heart to be successfully and safely seen in details. It has since enabled not only the prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart disease but the diagnosis and treatment of fetal arrhythmias. New advances of Doppler echocardiography have provided exciting informations on the(More)
Middle cerebral artery (MCA) blood flow velocity waveforms were recorded by a pulsed Doppler system in normal and small for dates (SFD) fetuses. Eighty four normal growth fetuses and 15 SFD fetuses were studied between the 28th and 40th gestational week. The flow velocity waveforms were analysed to determine the resistance index (RI = peak systolic velocity(More)
Umbilical artery blood velocity waveforms were recorded by a pulsed Doppler system in the third trimester of pregnancy in 16 diabetic women (12 class B, 1 class C, 3 class D) and the waveforms were analysed for resistance index (RI = peak systolic velocity minus end diastolic velocity/peak systolic velocity). There was no significant correlation between the(More)
In 40 twin pregnancies, the evaluation of hemodynamics by ultrasound was performed during the period January 1986 through September 1991. The blood flow velocities' waveforms in the umbilical artery, umbilical vein and tricuspid valve, and the total cardiac dimension, were obtained by ultrasonography in conjunction with 3.5 MHz pulsed Doppler ultrasound.(More)
Congenital aortico-left ventricular tunnel (ALVT) is a rare congenital heart disease. A 27-year-old woman was referred to us at 37 weeks gestation with fetal cardiac enlargement. The left ventricle (LV) of the fetus was enlarged. Fetal aortic valve (AoV) ring diameter spread was observed. Back flow from the AoV margins to the LV was observed. The prenatal(More)
We report the use of paclitaxel in the successful treatment of a 74-year-old patient with extraovarian primary peritoneal carcinoma and acute renal failure caused by intraperitoneal cisplatin. The histological diagnosis was papillary serous adenocarcinoma. Paclitaxel was given intravenously at 70 mg/m2 in a 1-hour infusion weekly for 6 consecutive weeks(More)
