Fetal intestinal volvulus without malrotation is a rare, life-threatening disease. Left untreated, hemorrhage from necrotic bowel tissue will lead to severe fetal anemia and even intrauterine death. We encountered a case of fetal intestinal volvulus causing severe anemia, which was diagnosed postnatally and successfully treated with surgical intervention.
We present a case of cervical varix and low-lying placenta. A cesarean section was performed because of the risk of bleeding with vaginal delivery; hemostasis was achieved using z sutures at the bleeding points. After delivery, the cervical varix decreased dramatically in size. It is important to recognize the clinical features and available treatments for(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of present study were to investigate the expression of Annexin A2 in the placenta of patients with preeclampsia (PE) and correlate these data with acute worsening of clinical symptoms. METHODS Placentas were collected from uncomplicated normal pregnancies (n = 9), PE cases without emergency termination of pregnancy (group 1, n = 6),(More)
A 28-year-old man had experienced non-progressive gait disturbance since early childhood. He was admitted because of hypogonadism and cerebellar ataxia. On admission, bilateral vitelliform macular dystrophy, fixation nystagmus, slurred speech, cerebellar ataxia, decreased tendon reflexes, and pes cavus were present. Higher brain function, auditory function,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to investigate the time intervals of each component of cardiac flow velocity waveforms (FVWs) in fetuses with fetal growth restriction (FGR) and to compare these with those of normal fetuses using reference ranges. METHODS The durations of atrioventricular (AV) valve opening (AVVO), AV valve closure (AVVC), total E-(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to construct reference ranges for time intervals of each component of cardiac flow velocity waveforms in normal fetuses, comparing those variables between right and left ventricles. METHODS In 359 fetuses at the gestational age of 17-38 weeks, the durations of atrioventricular (AV) valve opening (AVVO), AV valve closure (AVVC), total(More)
