Accurate diagnosis and treatment of small bowel obstruction (SBO) is critical to prevent complications and reduce costs. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the evolving role of CT scan for patients with suspected SBO and compare its sensitivity and specificity with plain abdominal films. We identified 108 patients over a 1-year period with an(More)

Rupture during first pregnancy is extremely rare. CASE A 30-year-old primigravid woman was admitted for labor augmentation with(More)
OBJECTIVE Comparison of time and outcomes of National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development defined fetal heart rate acceleration criteria at ≤ 32 weeks (≥ 10 beats/min, ≥ 10 seconds) compared with standard criteria (≥ 15 beats/min, ≥ 15 seconds). STUDY DESIGN Singleton high-risk pregnancies that were referred for nonstress testing at ≤ 32(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe outcomes for a large cohort of women with prenatally diagnosed vasa previa, determine the percentage in patients without risk factors, and compare delivery timing and indications for singletons and twins. METHODS This was a retrospective case series of women with prenatally diagnosed vasa previa delivered at a single tertiary center(More)
Myelomeningoceles are routinely diagnosed prenatally by using ultrasonography. Because the level of the neural defect has been shown to correlate with functional and cognitive outcome in infants with myelomeningocele, it is of prognostic importance to identify the level prenatally. The authors report on a case in which the postnatal vertebral level of the(More)
