A randomized trial of hyperimmune globulin to prevent congenital cytomegalovirus.
Treatment with hyperimmune globulin did not significantly modify the course of primary CMV infection during pregnancy, and the clinical outcome of congenital infection at birth was similar in the two groups.
Sonography of pregnancies with first‐trimester bleeding and a viable embryo: a study of prognostic indicators by logistic regression analysis
The objective of our study was to investigate the relationship between sonographic findings and the occurrence of abortion in pregnancies complicated by first‐trimester bleeding in which fetal
Down syndrome biochemical markers and screening for preeclampsia at first and second trimester: correlation with the week of onset and the severity
To estimate the combined screening performance of first and early second trimester prenatal serum markers for Down syndrome, in screening for the development of preeclampsia, and analyze the
Ultrasound prediction of symptomatic congenital cytomegalovirus infection.
When fetal infection status is unknown, ultrasound abnormalities predict symptomatic congenital infection in only a third of cases.
Fetal head–symphysis distance: a simple and reliable ultrasound index of fetal head station in labor
To assess the reproducibility of measurement of a new sonographic index of fetal head station in labor, the fetal head–symphysis distance (HSD), using three‐dimensional ultrasound, and its
Gene expression in chorionic villous samples at 11 weeks' gestation from women destined to develop preeclampsia
To evaluate the direct alterations in mRNA expression among chorionic villous samples from 11 weeks' pregnant women who would develop preeclampsia (PE) later in the pregnancy, data are presented on whether these changes occur during or after the first trimester of pregnancy.
Brainstem–vermis and brainstem–tentorium angles allow accurate categorization of fetal upward rotation of cerebellar vermis
To evaluate the role of the brainstem–vermis (BV) and brainstem–tentorium (BT) angles in the differential diagnosis of upward rotation of the fetal cerebellar vermis.

  • 1 December 2006
To identify criteria useful for differentiating closed from open spina bifida antenatally, a large number of studies have failed to find any criteria useful.
The predictive value of cytogenetic diagnosis after CVS based on 4860 cases with both direct and culture methods
The data confirm the high diagnostic accuracy of chorionic villus sampling and the utility of the combined use of the two methods in minimizing diagnostic errors and in reducing the need for follow‐up amniocentesis.
Diagnosis of midline anomalies of the fetal brain with the three‐dimensional median view
To investigate the effectiveness of a simplified approach to the evaluation of the midline structures of the fetal brain using three‐dimensional (3D) ultrasound, a three-dimensional ultrasound system is used for the first time.
