Thirteen fetuses with abdominal cystic tumors were diagnosed by routine prenatal ultrasonography between the 28th and 36th week of gestation. Postnatal ultrasonography of the full-term newborns confirmed the findings. Laparotomies were performed in all cases except one. Patients who were operated on had large ovarian pseudocysts with volumes between 24 and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate responses of human fetuses near term (37-42 wks) (increase/decrease of fetal heart rate and/or fetal motility) to acoustic stimuli. The study group consisted of 43 patients and the control group of 27 patients. Polygraphic recordings of 5 different fetal variables were carried out synchronously for the categorization(More)

Between January 1989 and November 1996 we detected a total of 44 cases of anterior abdominal wall defects comprising 29 with an omphalocele and 15 with gastrochisis. The gestational age at antenatal diagnosis of gastrochisis (mean = 17 weeks, 95% CI = 15-19) was significantly lower than for omphalocele (mean = 19.0 weeks, 95% CI = 17-21). Whereas(More)
A total of 2741 high-risk pregnant mothers underwent invasive prenatal procedures, and in 94 of them (3.4%), fetal chromosomal or genetic anomalies were detected. In this study, we report on single pericentric inversions of chromosome 9 as well as translocations, which constituted 32% (30 of 94) and 16% (15 of 94) of all identified chromosomal or genetic(More)
OBJECTIVES The intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) contributes specially to perinatal mortality and morbidity. An effective treatment is not yet available. The purpose of this study is to analyse the perinatal data of a cohort with IUGR-infants including mortality and morbidity and to describe prematurity and IUGR as a combination of high risk.

A rare case of a twin pregnancy occurring in the right horn of a uterus didelphys (double uterus, double cervix and septate vagina) is reported. The occasional diagnosis of this uterine anomaly was made after the pregnancy was detected. Both embryos, with cardiac actions which proved the viability of the gestation from the very early stage of pregnancy,(More)
The clinical character of cardiovascular disease creates challenges in optimizing cardiovascular catheterization lab (CVL) throughput. These challenges are due to case load fluctuations caused by unscheduled Emergency Department patients and simultaneous conflicting demands on cardiologist time. The simulation model provides insight into the complex(More)
