UNLABELLED Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors in women, occurring in approximately 20% to 30% of women of reproductive age. They are therefore common in pregnancy. The true incidence of fibroids during pregnancy is, however, unknown, but reported rates vary from as low as 0.1% of all pregnancies to higher rates of 12.5%. It seems that(More)
Tibolone (Livial), a synthetic steroid, relieves climacteric symptoms and maintains skeletal integrity in postmenopausal women. We have been using this compound for 8 years and have now reviewed our clinical experience in 301 postmenopausal women. The majority (65.12%) had not previously received climacteric therapy; 34.55% had previously received(More)

Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumour of the female genital tract. However, their true prevalence is probably under-estimated, as the incidence at histology is more than double the clinical incidence. Recent longitudinal studies have estimated that the lifetime risk of fibroids in a woman over the age of 45 years is more than 60%, with(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the observer accuracy and intra-observer test-retest reliability of visual estimation of blood loss by midwives and obstetricians. METHODS This was a prospective, single-blinded observational study conducted at a London teaching hospital. The accuracy of visually estimating five maternity pads that had been soaked with 25, 50, 100,(More)
INTRODUCTION Cervical incompetence appears to have a greater prevalence in the developing world, which possibly extends to multi-ethnic communities in the UK. Emergency cerclage has been found to have a relative degree of success in patients detected on ultrasound or presenting clinically. Our study aimed to look at the emergency cerclage outcome in the(More)
BACKGROUND Although uterine fibroids are very common, their pathogenesis and clinical behaviour are poorly understood. Since they may be prevalent in some families, we investigated whether such a prevalence was associated with distinctive clinical and molecular features. METHODS A case-control questionnaire study of 300 multi-ethnic women with uterine(More)
