Pregnancy in rudimentary horn of uterus, a form of ectopic gestation, is associated with significant rates of morbidity and mortality. Despite the recent advances in the ultrasonography, diagnosis of cornual pregnancy still remains elusive; with confirmatory diagnosis usually made during laparotomy. The aim of the present study is to analyze the obstetric(More)
While exposure of C3 plants to elevated [CO2] would be expected to reduce production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in leaves because of reduced photorespiratory metabolism, results obtained in the present study suggest that exposure of plants to elevated [CO2] can result in increased oxidative stress. First, in Arabidopsis and soybean, leaf protein(More)
AIM To assess risk factors, mortality and "near-miss" morbidity in early PPH. SETTING AND DESIGN Retrospective analysis of 178 women with early PPH (within 24 h of delivery) over 4 consecutive years in a tertiary care hospital in North India. MATERIALS AND METHODS All case sheets of patients identified by labor record registers as having early PPH were(More)
The mechanisms involved in sensing oxidative signalling molecules, such as H2O2, in plant and animal cells are not completely understood. In the present study, we tested the postulate that oxidation of Met (methionine) to MetSO (Met sulfoxide) can couple oxidative signals to changes in protein phosphorylation. We demonstrate that when a Met residue(More)
OBJECTIVES Secondary PPH has received little attention. In more than half of cases the etiology is not made out. Vascular abnormalities like pseudoaneurysm and AV malformation are rare but detectable and easily treatable. METHODS This is an analysis of five women presenting with severe secondary PPH after the 3rd to 6th week of postpartum. All women were(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the potential association of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene polymorphism and serum ACE activity with pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). METHODS The ACE genotype was identified and serum ACE activity was measured in 50 primigravidae with PIH and 50 normotensive primigravidae. These subjects were followed up to(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of 2 packages of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) on the clinical course of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) among women attending a gynecology outpatient department in Chandigarh, India. METHODS A randomized controlled trial was conducted between August 8, 2010, and October 31, 2011. Overall, 140 women with stage I-III POP(More)
We are reporting two cases of uterine necrosis and lumbosacral-plexopathy in patients, who underwent pelvic vessel embolization (PVE) following postpartum hemorrhage. Embolization was performed with gelfoam slurry, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles and coil in one patient and with gelfoam slurry only, in second patient. Both patients had lower limbs(More)
We studied the role of pelvic artery embolization in management of obstetric hemorrhage by retrospective analysis of 50 cases of obstetric hemorrhage in a tertiary care referral hospital where this procedure was used. Uterine and or internal iliac artery embolization was performed for the management of postpartum hemorrhage (39 cases; 78%), post abortal(More)
Pheochromocytoma associated with pregnancy is rare with potentially lethal consequences. Antepartum diagnosis improves the maternal and perinatal outcome. The issue of mode of delivery is unresolved. Its definitive treatment is surgical resection preceded by medical management. Surgical resection may be done during caesarean section as is reported in the(More)
