We described a fetus who is delivered at 32.weeks of gestation by elective cesarian because of the fetal anhydria and unilateral hydronephrosis.A breech coming,1950 gr, 44 cm a newborn was delivered with multiple malformations and postpartum he didn't cry and siyanosis was appeared. After first interventions the newborns respiration didn't start and(More)
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 report a case of successful pregnancy after hypogastric artery ligation and the B-Lynch brace suturing technique. DESIGN Case report. SETTING Education and research hospital. PATIENT(S) A 22-year-old woman, whose first pregnancy was terminated by cesarean section owing to abruptio placenta and intrauterine fetal demise diagnosed at the(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)
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)
BACKGROUND It has been previously demonstrated that intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) due to vascular insufficiency in humans results in newborn infants with marked loss of subcutaneous fat and decreased content of differentiation-specific epidermal structural proteins. OBJECTIVE In this study, the teratogenic effects of impaired maternal blood flow(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)
Preterm delivery (PTD), defined as birth before 37 completed weeks of gestation, is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Evaluation of the cervical morphology and biometry with transvaginal ultrasonography at 16-24 weeks of gestation is a useful tool to predict the risk of preterm birth in low- and high-risk singleton pregnancies.
