BACKGROUND Several observational studies have evaluated the effect of a single exposure window with blood pressure (BP) medications on outcomes in incident dialysis patients, but whether BP medication prescription patterns remain stable or a single exposure window design is adequate to evaluate effect on outcomes is unclear. METHODS We described patterns(More)
The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at dialysis initiation has been rising. Observational studies suggest harm, but may be confounded by unmeasured factors. As instrumental variable methods may be less biased, we performed a retrospective cohort study of 310,932 patients who started dialysis between 2006 and 2008 and were registered in the(More)
For judgment of late morbidity we investigated 52 children after vaginal delivery in breech presentation age from 5 to 7 years. This concerned 27 children after assisted spontaneous labour and 25 children after manual expression according to Bracht. All the children were mature and eutrophic and without neonatal distress after delivery. They were explored(More)
The following biophysical examination parameters were found by CTG-synchronous registration of fetal body and respiratory movements and compared in 7 fetuses impaired at birth (pHa less than 7.20, 1- and 5-minute Apgar scores less than or equal to 7 points) and 76 unimpaired born fetuses (pHa greater than or equal to 7.20, 1- and 5-minute Apgar scores(More)
The temporal relations between fetal body movements and associated fetal heart rate accelerations were shown as the ratios of duration of acceleration or acceleration amplitude and the duration of associated fetal body movements in 44 normotrophic and 40 hypotrophic fetuses (body weights within the 6th to 10th percentiles, n = 19, and less than or equal to(More)
