BACKGROUND This study was planned to evaluate the efficiency of the 11-14 week scan in detecting fetuses with major fetal structural abnormalities. METHODS Some 1,290 pregnant women were submitted to a routine ultrasound scan between the 11th and 14th week after the detection of the fetal viability. The fetal anatomy was examined transabdominally, and in(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of nasal bone improves the performance of first-trimester screening for trisomy 21. In this retrospective study we aimed to determine normative values related to the measurement of nasal bone length of the Turkish population during the first trimester ultrasonographic fetal screening.

Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is commonly associated with facial malformations. We present a case of semilobar HPE associated with distal limb defect which was detected at 12 weeks of gestation. The fetus had a crown-rump length of 60 mm (12 weeks–4 days), had nuchal translucency thickness of 1.5 mm. Initial two-dimensional (2D) ultrasound revealed the absence of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether maternal plasma fibronectin and advanced oxidative protein products (AOPP) can be used for the prediction of preeclampsia in high-risk women. STUDY DESIGN One hundred pregnant women at high risk of preeclampsia were enrolled in this prospective cohort study. Maternal plasma total fibronectin and AOPP levels were measured at(More)
OBJECTIVE The term arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC) refers to multiple joint contractures present at birth. AMC is not a specific disorder but is the consequence of neurological, muscular, connective tissue, and skeletal abnormalities or intrauterine crowding, which may lead to limitation of fetal joint mobility and the development of contractures.(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim is to investigate sonographically detectable vault hematomas after vaginal hysterectomy and its relation to postoperative morbidity. METHODS We studied a group of 103 women who had undergone vaginal hysterectomy for benign causes apart from uterovaginal prolapse. Transabdominal ultrasound examinations were carried out 24 to 72 hours(More)
Jarcho-Levin syndrome (JLS) causes severe vertebral and thoracic deformity and has an autosomal-recessive mode of inheritance. Prenatal diagnosis may be difficult in some cases without the history of an affected baby. We present 4 cases of JLS with neural tube defects as the prominent finding. In 2 of them the deformity of the thorax was minimal and was not(More)
