We aimed to discuss the prenatal diagnosis and pathological features of sirenomelia, and to review current embryogenic theories. We observed two sirenomelic fetuses that were at the 19th and 16th gestational week respectively. In the former, transvaginal ultrasound revealed severe oligohydramnios and internal abortion, whereas bilateral renal agenesis,(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of sonohysterography in early diagnosis of endometrial tumor lesions and in the detection of myometrial infiltration for staging. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed sonohysterography as a preoperative test in 24 patients with an hystologic diagnosis of endometrial adenocarcinoma obtained by(More)
Arteriovenous malformation of the uterus is a rare but potentially life-threatening lesion. We report a case of arteriovenous malformation of the uterus in a 19-year-old nulliparous woman. The diagnosis was made with color Doppler sonography and was confirmed histologically. Color Doppler sonography helps differentiate uterine arteriovenous malformation(More)
BACKGROUND An increasing number of women in childbearing age are submitted to surgical treatment of obesity; for this reason pregnancy represents a frequent event in operated patients.

We describe the histological examination of 18 aborted fetuses that had increased nuchal translucency (NT) between 11(+0) and 13(+6) weeks' gestation. The aim of this study was to assess the corresponding NT anatomic features by immunohistochemical (IHC) investigation. A morphological study was performed using lymphatic and blood endothelial specific(More)
To determine the success rate of transobturator adjustable tape (TOA, Agency for Medical Innovations, A.M.I., Austria) in stress urinary incontinent patients with maximal urethral closure pressure (MUCP) ≤20 cm H2O compared to those with MUCP >20 cm H2O. In this retrospective study, all female patients with a diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence(More)
From January 1987 to February 1988 patients affected by uterine fibroid were offered medical treatment with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogs as an alternative to surgery. The aim was to compare results obtained with two different analog formulations. 42 patients were randomly assigned to receive either intranasal buserelin, preceded by a short(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the diagnostic value and the usefulness of sonohysterography in the detection of uterine intracavitary benign abnormalities, compared with other diagnostic methods (transvaginal ultrasonography and diagnostic hysteroscopy). From January 2003 to December 2003, a total of 73 patients (47 premenopausal (middle(More)
