OBJECTIVE To compare sonohysterography (SH), in the exploration of the uterine cavity, with classical transvaginal sonography (TVS), hysterography (HSG), and hysteroscopy. STUDY DESIGN 104 consecutive patients evaluated for uterine disorders underwent both TVS and SH. SH was obtained by distension of the uterine cavity with the instillation of an isotonic(More)
PURPOSE We assessed the role of preoperative sonohysterography in the diagnosis of intrauterine synechiae. METHODS Nineteen patients with a suspected diagnosis of intrauterine adhesion underwent hysterosalpingography, transvaginal sonography, and sonohysterography performed in the consultation room. The patients were then treated by hysteroscopy under(More)
OBJECTIVE To define imaging patterns of unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia (UCH), discuss possible pathophysiological mechanisms and underline the etiology and prognosis associated with these lesions. METHODS In this retrospective study we reviewed the charts of 26 fetuses diagnosed between 2003 and 2011 with UCH, defined by asymmetrical cerebellar(More)
INTRODUCTION Glioma is seldom diagnosed during pregnancy. In this situation management presents difficult problems for both neuro-oncologists and obstetricians. We report four cases and discuss the management of this unusual situation. CASE REPORT The first patient was admitted to hospital at 29 weeks' gestation because of a generalized seizure and a(More)
We report a specific sonographic cerebral pattern of cobblestone lissencephaly (CL) that has not been described previously. This pattern was encountered in four index cases and allowed prenatal diagnosis of CL associated with Walker-Warburg syndrome. The pattern included both an outer echogenic band with reduced pericerebral space, corresponding to an(More)
Neural tube defects (NTDs) are severe congenital malformations due to failure of neural tube formation in early pregnancy. The proof that folic acid prevents NTDs raises the question of whether other parts of homocysteine (Hcy) metabolism may affect rates of NTDs. This French case-control study covered: 77 women aged 17-42 years sampled prior to elective(More)
In 2010 and 2011, the city of Lyon, located in the Rhône-Alpes region (France), has experienced one of the highest incidences of measles in Europe. We describe a measles outbreak in the Lyon area, where cases were diagnosed at Lyon University hospitals (LUH) between 2010 and mid-2011. Data were collected from the mandatory notification system of the(More)
Per partum fetal asphyxia is a major cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. Fetal heart rate monitoring plays an important role in early detection of acidosis, an indicator for asphyxia. This problem is addressed in this paper by introducing a novel complexity analysis of fetal heart rate data, based on producing a collection of piecewise linear(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the diagnostic value of three vaginal markers-insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 (= IGFBP1), diamine-oxidase (= DAO) and pH-for diagnosis of the premature rupture of membranes. STUDY One hundred pregnant women participated in the study. They were divided into three groups: group A (34 cases with intact membranes), group B (35(More)
