Noninvasive uterine electromyography for prediction of preterm delivery.
OBJECTIVE Power spectrum (PS) of uterine electromyography (EMG) can identify true labor. EMG propagation velocity (PV) to diagnose labor has not been reported. The objective was to compare uterineExpand

This article presents clinical considerations about the therapeutic alliance in couples therapy, stimulated by pertinent new research findings reported in this issue. A loyalty dimension of theExpand
Physiology and electrical activity of uterine contractions.
Presently, there is no effective treatment for preterm labor. The most obvious reason for this anomaly is that there is no objective manner to evaluate the progression of pregnancy through stepsExpand
Electrical Activity of the Human Uterus During Pregnancy as Recorded from the Abdominal Surface
Objective To validate the possibility that human uterine electrical events (electromyographic signals) can be recorded and characterized from the abdominal surface during pregnancy. Methods TheExpand
Predicting Term and Preterm Delivery With Transabdominal Uterine Electromyography
OBJECTIVE To determine whether delivery can be predicted using transabdominal uterine electromyography. METHODS A total of 99 patients were grouped as either term (37 weeks or more) or preterm (lessExpand
Involvement of a nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate pathway in control of human uterine contractility during pregnancy.
OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were to investigate whether a nitric oxide-cyclic guanosine monophosphate relaxation pathway is present in the human uterus and whether it differentially inhibitsExpand
Nitric oxide and its role during pregnancy: from ovulation to delivery.
Nitric oxide (NO) is a major paracrine mediator and important regulatory agent in various female reproductive processes, such as ovulation, implantation, pregnancy maintenance, labor and delivery.Expand
Gap junctions: their presence and necessity in myometrium during parturition.
Thin sections of longitudinal and circular muscle of myometrium obtained from rats during pregnancy, at term, during delivery, and postpartum were quantitatively examined in the electron microscope.Expand
Control and assessment of the uterus and cervix during pregnancy and labour.
Preterm labour and resultant preterm birth are the most important problems in perinatology. Countless efforts have failed to establish a single effective treatment of preterm labour, partly becauseExpand
Ultrastructural changes in mesenteric arteries from spontaneously hypertensive rats. A morphometric study.
Morphometric measurements at the electron microscope level were carried out on three categories of mesenteric arteries representing elastic (superior mesenteric), muscular and arteriolar vessels,Expand
