OBJECTIVE To identify factors associated with persistence or clearance of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) following loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) in high-risk patients. STUDY DESIGN In a retrospective database review, we identified 343 patients who had 2 LEEP procedures or LEEP followed by hysterectomy for CIN at Grady Memorial(More)
CONTEXT Several studies previously reported that the postmenopausal ovary produces androgens. However, these findings have recently been questioned in a group of women with adrenal insufficiency. OBJECTIVE We sought to use contemporary assay methodologies to investigate whether the postmenopausal ovary is hormonally active and contributes to the(More)
A higher proportion of nonobstructive than obstructive azoospermia, as well as an increased prevalence of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism were documented in a retrospective study characterizing azoospermia in a population of predominantly Latino, inner-city male partners of infertile couples, as compared to previous reports from relatively affluent(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the endometrial response to human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), as influenced by uterine age, using endometrial receptivity markers including HOXA10, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and glycodelin in an endometrial explant culture system. DESIGN In vitro molecular biology research. SETTING Academic infertility clinic(More)
Cardiac nuclear imaging (radionuclide angiography, electrocardiographic gated ventriculography and myocardial scintigraphy) provides structural and functional information simultaneously. This method extracts accurate quantitation of cardiovascular hemodynamics and unique information regarding myocardial perfusion. It is a reliable and relatively simple and(More)
Because the effectiveness of the "microdose flare" stimulation protocol often is attributed to the dramatic endogenous gonadotropin release induced by the GnRH agonist, the aim of this study was to determine whether use of microdose GnRH agonist alone could induce multiple ovarian follicle development in normal responders. Based on these data, the duration(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a case of a patient who had multiple follicular growth in the presence of an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy (EP). DESIGN Case report. SETTING In vitro fertilization unit at a university hospital. PATIENT(S) A 34-year-old patient with secondary infertility. INTERVENTION(S) Superovulation with clomiphene citrate (CC) and IUI. (More)
BACKGROUND St. John's wort (SJW), a commonly used herbal remedy, has been shown to compromise the efficacy of drugs, including oral contraceptive pills (OCPs), by inducing cytochrome P-450. We investigated whether the simultaneous use of SJW with OCPs resulted in elevated serum androgen levels with implications of impaired OCP treatment of hirsutism and(More)
IGF-1 levels increased, and IGF-2 and IGFBP-3 levels remained unchanged, in postmenopausal women following oophorectomy. The increase in IGF-1 likely results from decreased ovarian steroidogenic precursors resulting from removal of the hormonally active ovary. This finding raises concerns, given the association between increased IGF-1 and elevated colon(More)
BACKGROUND Gallbladder torsion is rarely diagnosed in pregnancy, but prompt surgical intervention is necessary to avoid possible sepsis and death. CASE A 28-year-old, African American woman at 30(6/7) weeks' gestation was admitted with the presumed diagnosis of acute cholecystitis. The patient was treated conservatively. However, on re-examination, the(More)
