In 345 women with a favorable cervical score at due date, labor was either induced by means of intravaginal application of tablets containing 3 mg of prostaglandin E2 or spontaneous onset of labor was awaited until the 42nd week of pregnancy. Eighty percent of the nulliparae and 96.3% of the multiparae of the induction group gave birth within 24 h of the(More)
Administration of the pyrrolizidine alkaloid monocrotaline (MCT) to rats results in hypertensive pulmonary vascular disease characterized by a structurally based increase in pulmonary vascular resistance and right ventricular hypertrophy. Alterations in lung angiotensin converting enzyme activity in MCT-treated rats have suggested a role for angiotensin II(More)
We studied the effect of perioperative clindamycin (3×600 mg in 100 ml 0.9% saline), metronidazole (3×500 mg in 100 ml 0.9% saline) and a placebo (3×100 ml of 0.9% saline) in 120 patients having a vaginal hysterectomy without colporrhaphy. The rate of postoperative urinary tract infections was significantly higher in the placebo group, but there was no(More)
A characteristic and comparatively frequent malformation of the female genital tract is the congenital absence of the vagina and a rudimentary uterus, known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster syndrome.

A variety of conservative surgical techniques is available for the termination of ectopic pregnancy with preservation of the tube. We report on a new treatment by means of intratubal prostaglandin F2 alpha application followed by intramuscular administration of a prostaglandin E2 derivative (sulprostone) for 3 days. Only 5 of the 30 patients enrolled had to(More)
The present paper reports on the treatment of 30 tubal pregnancies verified by laparoscopy by means of intratubal prostaglandin (PG) F2a and systemic PG E2. Tubal pregnancy was successfully treated in 25 patients; three patients exhibited side effects. The comparison with surgical management showed better results concerning the tubal patency in the(More)
Plasma concentrations of ANP, Aldosteron and ADH were determined immediately ante- and post-partum and on the second day of puerperium in 36 healthy women, 12 primiparous and 24 multiparous. These parameters were also measured by RIA in umbilical cord plasma obtained at the time of delivery. The values were compared with an age-matched group of non pregnant(More)
