The relationship between non-bound steroid hormone levels in plasma and the occurrence of postpartum mood changes was investigated in 26 newly delivered mothers throughout the first 5 days postpartum. Studies with saliva samples had reported higher concentrations of 17 beta-estradiol and progesterone on the days of symptoms in women experiencing postpartum(More)
A prospective study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of radionuclide hysterosalpingoscintigraphy using 99mTc-labelled human serum albumin macroaggregates in 17 patients (34 tubes). In normal females the macroaggregates migrate spontaneously through the female reproductive tract following application into the posterior vaginal fornix. They can be seen(More)
Spontaneous migration of a radionuclide tracer from the vagina to the peritoneum may be visualized by scintigraphic imaging (hysterosalpingoscintigraphy, HSS). A prospective study was designed to evaluate diagnostic criteria for normal tubal passage of a control group (n = 7) and to establish the predictive value of the HSS technique in defining functional(More)
A prospective study in 38 patients was designed to evaluate the efficacy and reliability of radionuclide hysterosalpingoscintigraphy (HSS) using 99mTc labelled human albumin macroaggregates (HAMA). Following application in the posterior vaginal fornix at the time of ovulation, HAMA normally migrate spontaneously through the uterus and tubes and may be(More)
Gonadotropin response to exogenous luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) was studied in two groups of patients with the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Group I (n = 44) was diagnosed as 'overt PCOS' based on clinical and endocrine abnormalities, and the typical ultrasonic picture of multicystic changes in an increased amount of ovarian stroma.(More)
Depressive mood disorders following childbirth can be quantified with self-rating and observer-rating scales. During two months, in the period from November 1989 to March 1990, women admitted to the obstetric unit of the University of Würzburg were examined on days 3 and 5 post-partum with the Hamilton Psychiatric Rating Scale for Depression, the(More)
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) exerts a clinically apparent negative feedback on the secretion of human thyroid-stimulating hormone (hTSH) in pregnancy, and the two have cross-reactivity for the TSH receptor in membrane preparations of the thyroid. We examined whether hTSH, in turn, has an influence on the secretion and synthesis of hCG in short-term(More)
We report a case of non-ruptured tubal pregnancy at 38 weeks of pregnancy with the survival of mother and baby. Following salpingotomy a 1860 gr and 43 cm normal healthy male infant was delivered. The fallopian tube with placental tissue was removed by salpingectomy. Fetal development post partum and recovery of the mother were normal.
