Pregnancies in spinal cord-injured patients present unique clinical challenges to obstetric providers. Spinal cord injury (SCI) alters the function of multiple organ systems, and chronic medicalExpand
Identification of novel protein biomarkers of preterm birth in human cervical-vaginal fluid.
Spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) is a major contributor to perinatal morbidity and mortality. However, the diagnosis of preterm labor (PTL) that leads to preterm birth is difficult, and there is aExpand
Pregnancy outcomes following treatment for fibroids: uterine fibroid embolization versus laparoscopic myomectomy
Purpose of review The management of uterine fibroids in patients requiring treatment who desire future fertility remains controversial. Myomectomy has been the most common operative procedure toExpand
Pregnancy outcomes after treatment for fibromyomata: uterine artery embolization versus laparoscopic myomectomy.
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare pregnancy outcomes in women with fibromyomata who were treated with uterine artery embolization to the outcomes in women who were treated withExpand
Delivery after prior cesarean: maternal morbidity and mortality.
Nearly 1 in 3 pregnant women in the United States undergo cesarean. This trend is contrary to the national goal of decreasing cesarean delivery in low-risk women. The decline in vaginal birth afterExpand
The Efficacy of Sonographically Indicated Cerclage in Multiple Gestations
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of sonographically indicated cerclage in multiple gestations with sonographic evidence of short cervical length (CL).
Preconception Care
Our objective was to provide the clinician with easy-to-use evidence-based guidelines, based on the best available literature, for offering effective preconception care, aimed at decreasing maternalExpand
Comprehensive proteomic analysis of human cervical-vaginal fluid.
Cervical-vaginal fluid (CVF) is a potential rich source of biomarkers for enhancing our understanding of human parturition and pathologic conditions affecting pregnancy. In this study, we performed aExpand
Pregnancy After Uterine Artery Embolization
BACKGROUND Uterine artery embolization is an increasingly popular alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy as a treatment for uterine leiomyoma. Whether this procedure is safe for women desiringExpand
Proteomic analysis of cervical-vaginal fluid: identification of novel biomarkers for detection of intra-amniotic infection.
Intra-amniotic infection (IAI) is associated with preterm birth and perinatal mortality. To identify potential biomarkers, we performed a comprehensive survey of the cervical-vaginal fluid (CVF)Expand
