AIM To describe the evolution of placental vascularization during a normal course of gestation and the blood flow 3D power Doppler indices obtained by "placental vascular biopsy." METHODS A prospective study was carried out on 99 normal singleton pregnancies from 14 to 40 weeks. Placental vascularization was evaluated by 3D power Doppler ("placental(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether the number of ovarian antral follicles, ovarian volume, and ovarian stromal blood flow change with age and to prospectively analyze whether three-dimensional ultrasonographic measurements predict ovarian response and IVF outcome. DESIGN Prospective analysis. SETTING Assisted reproductive unit. PATIENT(S) Fifty-six(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the flow velocity of the uterine, radial, spiral, and ovarian arteries during the periovulatory period in spontaneous and induced ovarian cycles with confirmed ovulation. DESIGN Daily measurements during the periovulatory period in 78 patients attending an infertility clinic because of the male factor in infertility. RESULTS Uterine(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of three-dimensional (3D) sonography and 3D power Doppler imaging, used together with standard 2D transvaginal grayscale and color/power Doppler modalities, for preoperative sonographic assessment of suspected ovarian lesions. METHODS Five-year retrospective analysis was performed by our(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of transvaginal color Doppler in differentiating uterine sarcoma from myoma. STUDY DESIGN A group of 2010 women were examined by transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography 1 day before planned hysterectomy. Ten cases with uterine sarcoma were analyzed with respect to their color Doppler sonographic patterns and compared with(More)
AIM To evaluate the developmental pattern of fetal hand movements and facial activity and expression during the second and third trimester of pregnancy by four-dimensional ultrasound (4D-US). SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 25 fetuses in uncomplicated pregnancies were analyzed; 15 fetuses at 13 to 16 weeks and 10 fetuses at 30 to 33 weeks of gestation(More)
The purpose of this review article was to analyze the literature on the prevalence, diagnosis and treatment of the congenital uterine anomalies and to discuss current dilemmas on their influence on reproductive outcome. Congenital uterine anomalies are commonly associated with repeated pregnancy failure, in particular an increased risk of first- and(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of color-Doppler velocimetry during the labor. 325 intrapartal measurements of the umbilical artery, fetal aorta, middle cerebral artery and arcuate arteries were performed in a group of 105 patients. The resistance index (RI) and pulsatility index (PI) were measured. During the active labor the RI and PI of the(More)
BACKGROUND Our study was designed to evaluate whether ovarian antral follicle number, ovarian volume, stromal area and ovarian stromal blood flow are predictive of ovarian response and IVF outcome. A total of 56 women with normal basal serum FSH concentrations who had no history of ovarian surgery, no ovarian and/or uterine pathology, were non-smokers and(More)
