OBJECTIVE The accuracy of current formulae for the sonographic estimation of fetal weight (EFW) is compromised by significant intra- and interobserver variability of biometrical measurements, particularly circumferences. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the linear measurement of mid-thigh soft-tissue thickness (STT) and to derive a(More)
Immunological alterations, endothelial dysfunction, and insulin resistance characterize preeclampsia. Endothelial cells hold the key role in the pathogenesis of this disease. The signaling pathways mediating these biological abnormalities converge on PKB/Akt, an intracellular kinase regulating cell survival, proliferation, and metabolism. Inositol second(More)
PURPOSE The accuracy of sonographic estimation of birth weight (EBW) is compromised by the precision of the biometrical measurements and the quality of the algorithms. This prospective study was to evaluate technical aspects to derive new equations for the EBW. METHODS Three consecutive phases were carried out (1) to recruit a homogenous population, (2)(More)
