Cervical stitch (cerclage) for preventing preterm birth in singleton pregnancy.
BACKGROUND Cervical cerclage is a well-known surgical procedure carried out during pregnancy. It involves positioning of a suture (stitch) around the neck of the womb (cervix), aiming to give aExpand
Fetal and umbilical Doppler ultrasound in high-risk pregnancies.
BACKGROUND Abnormal blood flow patterns in fetal circulation detected by Doppler ultrasound may indicate poor fetal prognosis. It is also possible that false positive Doppler ultrasound findingsExpand
Fetal and umbilical Doppler ultrasound in normal pregnancy.
BACKGROUND One of the main aims of routine antenatal care is to identify the 'at risk' fetus in order to apply clinical interventions which could result in reduced perinatal morbidity and mortality.Expand
Placental mitochondrial content and function in intrauterine growth restriction and preeclampsia.
Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and pregnancy hypertensive disorders such as preeclampsia (PE) associated with IUGR share a common placental phenotype called "placental insufficiency",Expand
Home Labour Induction with Retrievable Prostaglandin Pessary and Continuous Telemetric Trans-Abdominal Fetal ECG Monitoring
Objective To evaluate the feasibility of continuous telemetric trans-abdominal fetal electrocardiogram (a-fECG) in women undergoing labour induction at home. Study Design Low risk women withExpand
Cerebral blood flow studies in the diagnosis and management of intrauterine growth restriction
Purpose of review To provide evidence that fetal brain vasodilatation can be related with postnatal cerebral structural and functional complications. Recent findings Most early-onset intrauterineExpand
Does cervical length at 13–15 weeks' gestation predict preterm delivery in an unselected population?
To assess the role of early mid‐trimester cervical length measurement as a predictor of spontaneous preterm birth in an unselected population.
Maternal plasma concentrations of sST2 and angiogenic/anti-angiogenic factors in preeclampsia
Abstract Objectives: Angiogenic/anti-angiogenic factors have emerged as one of the promising biomarkers for the prediction of preeclampsia. Since not all patients with preeclampsia can be identifiedExpand
Parameters influence on acceleration and deceleration capacity based on trans-abdominal ECG in early fetal growth restriction at different gestational age epochs.
OBJECTIVE Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is characterized by chronic nutrient deprivation and hypoxemia that alters the autonomous nervous system regulation of fetal heart rate variabilityExpand
ISUOG Practice Guidelines: diagnosis and management of small-for-gestational-age fetus and fetal growth restriction.
The International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) is a scientific organization that encourages sound clinical practice, and high-quality teaching and research related toExpand
