BACKGROUND/AIM Preterm delivery is one of the most common complications in pregnancy, and it is the major cause (75-80%) of all neonatal deaths. Bacterial vaginosis predisposes to an increased risk of preterm delivery, premature rupture of membrane and miscarriage. In this syndrome normal vaginal lactobacilli, which produce protective H2O2, are reduced and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and completeness of uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) measured by changes in volume and signal intensity at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to compare with clinical outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS 40 women with symptomatic uterine fibroids underwent bilateral uterine artery embolization. At MRI studies, including(More)
AIMS The aims of study were to examine the antibacterial potential of two commercial essential oils (EOs) from coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) and thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) against vaginal clinical strains of bacteria and yeast and their chemical composition. METHODS AND RESULTS Antimicrobial activities of commercial essential oils were determined(More)
The objective was to evaluate the relation of uterine artery Doppler flow pulsatility index (PI) with total uterine volume reduction following bilateral embolisation of uterine fibroids by injection of polyvinyl alcohol particles. Doppler flow velocity was examined before and within 8 days after embolisation (n = 13). Uterine size was assessed by magnetic(More)
