Assessment of Coupling between Trans-Abdominally Acquired Fetal ECG and Uterine Activity by Bivariate Phase-Rectified Signal Averaging Analysis
Couplings between uterine contractions (UC) and fetal heart rate (fHR) provide important information on fetal condition during labor. At present, couplings between UC and fHR are assessed by visualExpand
Retrospective study 2005–2015 of all cases of fetal death occurred at ≥23 gestational weeks, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
Background Intrauterine fetal death (IUFD) is a tragic event and, despite efforts to reduce rates, its incidence remains difficult to reduce. The objective of the present study was to examine theExpand
The association of first trimester uterine arteries Doppler velocimetry with different clinical phenotypes of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy: a longitudinal study
Abstract Introduction: Current classification of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) is mostly based on temporal classification differentiating HDP according to early and late onset of theExpand
Changes in the maternal serum concentration of proearly placenta insulin-like growth factor peptides in normal vs abnormal pregnancy.
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate maternal serum pro-early placenta insulin like (proEPIL) levels during normal and pathologic pregnancy by using a newly developed enzyme-linkedExpand
Intrauterine versus post-mortem magnetic resonance in second trimester termination of pregnancy for central nervous system abnormalities.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate if limiting factors of intrauterine magnetic resonance imaging (iuMRI) performed in the early second trimester of pregnancy (19-23 weeks) affect its accuracy in comparison toExpand
Current use and performance of the different fetal growth charts in the Italian population.
OBJECTIVES The choice of growth charts impacts on screening, diagnosis and clinical management of fetal growth abnormalities. The objectives of the study were to evaluate: 1) the clinical practice atExpand
Bedside cardiovascular maternal interrogation in the first trimester to predict different phenotypes of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.
OBJECTIVE The aim is to evaluate if maternal cardiovascular indices, in the first trimester of pregnancy, might be useful to differentiate women who develop different hypertensive disorders ofExpand
A Case of Prenatal Neurocytoma Associated With ATR‐16 Syndrome
ATR-16 syndrome (α-thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome, chromosome 16 related) is caused by a deletion on chromosome 16p13.3. It is usually associated with heterogeneous features such asExpand
First trimester placental volume is reduced in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy associated with small for gestational age fetus
Abstract Introduction Trophoblastic invasion and placental growth are critical for pregnancy outcome. The placental volume can be assessed by 3 D ultrasound using Virtual Organ Computer-aidedExpand
Diagnostic role of inhibins and activins in adverse pregnancy outcomes
Human placenta is an endocrine organ expressing and releasing proteins and steroid hormones. Activins and inhibins, growth factors belonging to the TGF-β superfamily, are also expressed by theExpand
