PROBLEM Thrombophilic predisposition may be one of the underlying causes of recurrent spontaneous abortions (RSA). We studied the prevalence of five thrombophilic gene mutations in patients with RSA. METHOD OF STUDY 102 patients with two or more consecutive abortions and 128 women without miscarriage were analyzed for factor V Leiden mutation (FVL),(More)
In multiple pregnancies, demands for folic acid are considerably increased. The most common inborn error of folate metabolism is mild methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) deficiency due to the synthesis of a thermolabile variant of the enzyme with impaired catalytic activity which leads to reduced 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-methyl-THF) and mildly(More)
Uterine scar dehiscence following laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) is a rare event. We present a case of an magnetic resonance imaging-diagnosed uterine dehiscence in a primigravid patient at 29 weeks gestation, following a laparoscopic subserosal myomectomy, performed using unipolar electrocoagulation. Pregnant patients with a history of prior surgery where(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the indications for myomectomy during pregnancy and to discuss complications possibly related and unrelated to the procedure. METHOD AND RESULTS A 33-year-old patient at 18 weeks of gestation underwent removal of a 1,570-gram symptomatic fundic myoma. Histologically the patient had a leiomyomatous neoplasm of uncertain malignant(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the clinical value of pelvimetry to predict dystocia due to cephalopelvic disproportion. 63 patients who had received an abdominal CT scan postpartum were included. Pelvimetry was performed retrospectively with these datasets on a 3D workstation; there were no CT examinations performed solely for pelvimetry, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of the A307/S680 and T307/N680 isoforms of the follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) gene on the incidence of spontaneous human twinning. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of Clinical Chemistry-Grosshadern, University Hospital Munich, Germany. PATIENT(S)(More)
This study was undertaken to assess the agreement of computed tomography (CT) pelvimetry with different postprocessing techniques. CT data sets of 25 patients were retrospectively analysed. There were no CT examinations performed solely for pelvimetry, and there was no radiation exposure for study purposes. Six pelvimetric measurements were obtained by two(More)
Placental fatty acid transfer in humans in vivo was studied using stable isotopes. Four pregnant women undergoing cesarean section received 4 h before delivery an oral dose of [(13)C]palmitic acid (PA), [(13)C]oleic acid (OA), [(13)C]linoleic acid (LA), and [(13)C]docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Maternal blood samples were collected at -4 h (basal), -3 h, -2 h,(More)
BACKGROUND Reports of obstetric complications of mothers infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) are limited and the risk of mother-to-infant transmission varies widely. We assessed the course of pregnancy in HCV-infected women and the rate of vertical transmission. METHODS Between October 1992 and December 1996, 3712 pregnant patients of the university(More)
