Osteoporosis of the hip is a rare complication of pregnancy, the diagnosis of which can only be determined by radiologic means. Differentiation between osteonecrosis and osteoporosis remains problematic in some cases. Magnetic resonance imaging was reported as useful for the diagnosis of osteoporosis. Treatment of osteoporosis of the hip in pregnancy should(More)
We report the course and outcome of a pregnancy involving a giant fetal neck teratoma which was diagnosed at 23 weeks of gestation. Sonographic surveillance of the fetal neck revealed continuing growth of the tumor with development of polyhydramnios. Three-dimensional ultrasound provided additional detailed information on the external extent of the lesion.(More)
Our objective was to establish reference values for ductus venosus, inferior vena cava and hepatic vein flow velocities during ventricular systole (S-wave) and diastole (D-wave), the lowest forward velocity during atrial contraction (a-wave), the intensity-weighted mean flow velocity (Vmean) and different calculated indices. Venous flow velocity waveforms(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the spectrum of prenatally diagnosed fetal tumors, and the course and fetal outcome in affected pregnancies. METHODS This was a retrospective study in two German tertiary referral centers of 84 fetuses with tumors diagnosed in the prenatal period. The tumors were classified according to their location and histology. RESULTS The(More)
A massive cervicothoracal lymphangioma was diagnosed in a fetus at 25 weeks of gestation. On ultrasound study, the mass showed septated, cystic components and extended from the right submandibular region to the right anterolateral thoracic wall including the right axilla and right scapula. Close sonographic follow-up revealed an increase in the size of the(More)
Granulomatous mastitis (GM) is a rare disease which predominantly occurs in premenopausal women shortly after their last childbirth. Its etiology is unclear, however, the disease has been shown to be correlated with breast-feeding and the use of oral contraceptives. An autoimmune component has also been discussed. It presents with the clinical symptoms of(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to assess the role of uterine artery colour Doppler waveform analysis in the prediction of adverse pregnancy outcome such as preeclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation, placental abruption or a combination of outcome parameters. Various uterine artery Doppler ultrasound parameters (RI>0.58, RI>0.7 and unilateral or(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to assess the role of uterine artery color Doppler waveform analysis in the prediction of adverse pregnancy outcome such as preeclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation, placental abruption or a combination of outcome parameters in risk pregnancies (n=52). Various uterine artery Doppler ultrasound parameters(More)
Bereits Ende der 1960er Jahre gelang intrauterin die sonographische Darstellung der Plazenta. Lange Zeit beschränkten sich der Einsatz der B-Bild-Sonographie in der Lokalisation der Plazenta und Beurteilung der Plazentastruktur. Mit der sicheren Diagnose einer Plazenta praevia können fatale Geburtsausgänge vermieden werden. Ferner gelingt auch die Diagnose(More)
