OBJECTIVE There is a paucity of published data on the maternal risks of fetal surgical interventions. We analyzed maternal morbidity and mortality that were associated with different types of fetal intervention (open hysterotomy, various endoscopic procedures and percutaneous techniques) to quantify this risk. STUDY DESIGN We performed a retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVE With increasing technology and computerized systems in the OR, the physician's responsibility is growing. For intraoperative evaluation of insufflation techniques, a data acquisition model for quality control study of potential insufflation problems is necessary. METHODS A computer-based, online data acquisition model was designed with a Pentium(More)
We report of a woman with post-partum cerebral angiopathy (PCA), in whom we repetitively performed transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD), MR imaging (MRI), and MR angiography (MRA) to evaluate the underlying pathophysiology. A 31-year-old woman, Gemini pregnant, complained of severe throbbing frontal headache four days after an uneventful delivery by(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To characterize insufflator CO2 gas flow performance to predict gas flow rate with standard cannulas. DESIGN Prospective, observational study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING Laboratory of university clinic. PATIENTS None. Intervention. Gas flow (L/min) and average pressure (mm Hg) inside an abdomen model were(More)
OBJECTIVE Piercing is a growing fashion trend among young people. Nipple piercing has shown an increase over the last years. We report about three coincidental cases of breast abscess after nipple piercing within the last months in our clinics and discuss the related problems for health and society.

The pathophysiology of the reversible neurological manifestation in eclamptic women remains unclear. We report on 2 women with eclampsia who were repetitively examined by (1) transcranial Doppler (TCD), (2) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including T1- and T2-weighted images, fluid attenuated inversion recovery sequence, dynamic susceptibility-weighted(More)
Short rib-polydactyly syndrome (SRPS; types I-IV) is an autosomal recessive, lethal skeletal dysplasia characterized by short-limb dysplasia, narrow thorax, and polydactyly. This syndrome is invariable and can be detected by 2-trimester ultrasound. The underlying gene has not been discovered yet. We report a case of SRPS subtype III Verma-Naumoff-Le Marec(More)
