10.1111/j.1471-0528.2010.02665.x The aim was to estimate the risk of maternal hypertensive complications following first- or second-trimester invasive diagnostic procedures, i.e. chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis (AC). Odds ratios (ORs) for gestational hypertension, mild pre-eclampsia or severe pre-eclampsia were calculated for women who underwent CVS (n = 1 984) or AC (n = 21 748) compared with non-exposed women (n = 47 854). No increase in the development of gestational hypertension, mild pre-eclampsia or severe pre-eclampsia was observed. The results do not support an association between invasive procedures for fetal karyotyping and subsequent gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition of abnormally low AMNIOTIC FLUID volume. Principal causes include malformations of fetal URINARY TRACT; FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION; GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION; nicotine poisoning; and PROLONGED PREGNANCY.
A condition of fetal overgrowth leading to a large-for-gestational-age FETUS. It is defined as BIRTH WEIGHT greater than 4,000 grams or above the 90th percentile for population and sex-specific growth curves. It is commonly seen in GESTATIONAL DIABETES; PROLONGED PREGNANCY; and pregnancies complicated by pre-existing diabetes mellitus.
Surgical Procedures, Minimally Invasive
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Fetal Growth Retardation
The failure of a FETUS to attain its expected FETAL GROWTH at any GESTATIONAL AGE.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Uniparental disomy (UPD) is an uncommon chromosome condition, but UPD involving chromosome 21 is rarely reported. We reported here a case who had first trimester screening test for Down syndrome, chor...
BACKGROUND:: Fetal erythrocytes cross the placenta during gestation, but invasive prenatal procedures might develop into fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH). We examine whether flow cytometry immunophenotyp...
Fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) have significant aortic intima-media thickening (aIMT), which suggests that preclinical atherosclerosis might predispose the infants to hypertension...
Maternal and fetal characteristics are important determinants of fetal growth potential, and should ideally be taken into consideration when evaluating fetal growth variation. We developed a model for...
BackgroundPreeclampsia is a serious pregnancy complication. Gestational hypertension is a common first clinical presentation of preeclampsia. Little is known about which clinical risk factors are asso...
The usage of 3D/4D in additional to 2DUS can improve the assessment of structural anomalies at early gestation (11 to 14 weeks gestation), improve in the prediction of birth weight, decrea...

The purpose of this study is to determine if metformin therapy prevents fetal macrosomy in gestational diabetes mellitus to the same extent as insulin therapy.
A major goal of perinatal care is to accurately diagnose fetal anomalies prior to birth. This capability allows clinicians to make prudent decisions regarding antepartum care, delivery sit...
