Women's perception of sexuality during pregnancy and after birth.
BACKGROUND Pregnancy and birth mark a distinct period in the life of a woman. Hormonal alterations and bodily and social changes impact on women's physical well-being, mood, relationship andExpand
Human Endothelial Cells of the Placental Barrier Efficiently Deliver Cholesterol to the Fetal Circulation via ABCA1 and ABCG1
Although maternal–fetal cholesterol transfer may serve to compensate for insufficient fetal cholesterol biosynthesis under pathological conditions, it may have detrimental consequences underExpand
Quality of life outcomes in pregnancy and postpartum complicated by hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes, and preterm birth
Health problems can develop during a pregnancy, turning it into a high risk. The aim of this study was to explore the influence of hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes, and preterm birth asExpand
Dysregulation of placental endothelial lipase and lipoprotein lipase in intrauterine growth-restricted pregnancies.
CONTEXT Fetal supply of maternally derived fatty acids requires lipase-mediated hydrolysis of lipoprotein-borne triglycerides and phospholipids at the placental surface. OBJECTIVE The objective ofExpand
Calibrated automated thrombin generation in normal uncomplicated pregnancy.
Pregnancy is associated with substantial changes in the haemostatic system and a six-fold higher incidence of venous thromboembolism. Conventional global tests, such as prothrombin time and activatedExpand
Insulin action on the human placental endothelium in normal and diabetic pregnancy.
The placental endothelium is unique among the entire human vasculature. The blood enriched in oxygen and nutrients is transported in the veins, whereas the arteries contain deoxygenated blood comingExpand
Neonatal outcome and two‐year follow‐up after expectant management of second trimester rupture of membranes
Objective: To assess neonatal outcome and 2‐year follow‐up of pregnancies complicated by second trimester preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). Methods: A retrospective review of obstetricExpand
Perinatal complications and long-term neurodevelopmental outcome of infants with intrauterine growth restriction.
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate perinatal and long-term complications of fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) compared with constitutionally small for gestationalExpand
Intrauterine growth restriction is associated with alterations in placental lipoprotein receptors and maternal lipoprotein composition.
Among other factors, fetal growth requires maternal supply of cholesterol. Cellular cholesterol uptake is mainly mediated by the LDL receptor (LDL-R) and the scavenger receptor family. WeExpand
