OBJECTIVE To assess the performance of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) testing in maternal blood for detection of fetal aneuploidy of chromosomes 13, 18, 21, X, and Y using targeted sequencing of single-nucleotide polymorphisms. METHODS Prospective study in 242 singleton pregnancies undergoing chorionic villus sampling at 11 to 13 weeks. Maternal blood was(More)
Neonatal adrenal hemorrhage is frequently associated with birth trauma, perinatal asphyxia, septicemia, coagulation defects and thromboembolism. We report a case of bilateral adrenal hemorrhage in newborn baby with perinatal asphyxia. Ultrasound findings of subacute adrenal hemorrhage draw attention to its presumable antenatal genesis. DNA analysis for(More)
Purpose: To examine the prophylactic usage of recombinant human erythropoietin beta (EPO) for the anemia of prematurity and the influence of early blood transfusions (BTs), infections and multiple births on it. Patients and methods: 135 newborns, born before 29th gestational week (GW), were divided into: control group 0 without and case group 1 with(More)
With the advancing maternal age the rate of fibroids in pregnancy is also growing. A small part of fibroids in pregnancy are complicated and in about 2.6% necessitate urgent surgical treatment. We present a clinical case of subserose fibroid at 20 gestational weeks complicated with acute abdomen treated urgently with normal continuation of pregnancy.
PURPOSE To investigate the impact of the multiple births on the iron metabolism indices in premature infants. MATERIAL AND METHODS 102 premature infants, born before 33rd gestational week (GW), are investigated, divided in two groups: control group 1 - singletons (n 69), and case group 2 - twins (n 33). The serum levels of ferritin (Ferr), transferrin(More)
A retrospective analysis of surgical procedures for ovarian tumours, performed in the Department of General and Oncological Gynaecology at the Military Medical Academy (Sofia, Bulgaria) specified 81% of the tumour cases as benignant ones, 15.6% as malignant ones, and 3.4% as borderline ovarian tumours (BOT).

The detection of isolated ascites is a rare ultrasound finding. A precise examination should be undertaken in all cases fetal ascites. This include following a systematic protocol for diagnosis. The prognosis of the newborn in case of prenatal diagnosed ascites, depends on the etiology of the ascites. This is a case report of 40 years old pregnant women, at(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS The source of the data was the regional population-based(More)
The Gram-positive infections are a problem with increasing significance in the newborn period. LINEZOLID is the first member of the new group antibiotics--oxazolidinones. The most Gram-positive infections, including the resistant of vancomycin, influence by LINEZOLID. We treated twenty newborn babies with LINEZOLID during the period from April 2005 to April(More)
