To identify geographic differences in diagnostic and treatment practices during the perinatal management of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders.
Pregnant women were identified as a population of priority for vaccination during the H1N1 influenza pandemic breaking out in 2009.
To evaluate whether psychologic intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is a risk factor for intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR).
To evaluate the value of serum microRNA-122 (miR-122) and miR-199a as reliable noninvasive biomarkers in the diagnosis of endometriosis.
This project of the International Society for Gynecologic Endoscopy (ISGE) had the objective to review the literature and provide recommendations on the occult sarcoma risk assessment in patients who are candidates for minimally invasive gynecological surgery involving intra-abdominal electromechanical tissue morcellation.
To summarize evidence from the literature on the risk factors associated with preeclampsia, assess the presence of statistical biases and identify associations with robust evidence.
To identify the preoperative ultrasound measurements for assessing the size of tubal ectopic pregnancy which correlate best with the findings at surgery.
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effect of metformin on the rat ovary against ischemia-reperfusion injury.
There is a lack of information on paternal postnatal depression in developing countries such as Nigeria.
Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) is derived from the small antral follicles and an elevated level has been suggested to add value to the Rotterdam criteria for the diagnosis of PCOS in cases of diagnostic uncertainty. Therefore, the role of AMH in the classical phenotype of PCOS was defined within a Caucasian population.
Medical abortion is a safe, effective, and acceptable option for patients seeking an early non-surgical abortion. In 2014, medical abortion accounted for nearly one-third (31%) of all abortions performed in the United States. State-level attempts to restrict reproductive and sexual health have recently included bills that require physicians to inform women that a medical abortion is reversible. In...
Primary malignant mixed mesodermal tumor (MMMt, also called malignant mixed Mullerian tumor and designated in the WHO classification of female genital tract neoplasms as carcinosarcoma) is an infrequent tumor that develops usually in the uterus and more rarely in the ovary. Extragenital tumor, including primary peritoneal MMMt, is an extremely rare and aggressive neoplasm with only few case report...
There is a heightened risk for cardiovascular diseases in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Alterations in heart rate variability (HRV) may reflect subclinical cardiovascular disease, with a putative association between HRV and dietary fat. This study evaluated HRV in PCOS and control women based on the dietary intake of saturated fatty acid (SFA).
Ultrasonography (US) is frequently the first imaging modality used to examine women with symptoms involving the pelvis. It is widely available and involves no exposure to ionizing radiation. Images can be acquired with a transabdominal, endovaginal, or translabial approach, and the use of video clips and three-dimensional reconstructions can be helpful. US is excellent for assessment of the uterus...
We present a rare case of an isolated intraparenchymal splenic metastasis of endometrial cancer managed with robotic-assisted surgery.
Currently, chromosomal microarray analysis is considered as the first-tier test in pediatric care and prenatal diagnosis. However, the diagnostic yield of CMA for prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart disease has not been evaluated based on a large cohort.
Amblyospora khaliulini (Microsporidia: Amblyosporidae): Investigations on its life cycle and ecology in Aedes communis (Diptera: Culicidae) and Acanthocyclops vernalis (Copepoda: Cyclopidae) with redescription of the species.
A multi-year study was conducted to examine the natural ecology of the microsporidium Amblyospora khaliulini and more fully characterize parasite development and histopathology in all stages of its primary mosquito host, Aedes communis and intermediate copepod host, Acanthocyclops vernalis with redescription of the species. A. khaliulini exhibits polymorphic development, produces three morphologic...
In ovarian follicle development, estrogen acts as a regulatory molecule to mediate proliferation and differentiation of follicular cells. ERα (estrogen receptor α) exerts regulatory function classically by binding directly to the estrogen response element, recruiting co-factors and activating or repressing transcription in response to E2. In this study, we used ChIP-seq to map ERα-binding sites...
The aim of this study was to systematically search the literature for studies that reported term neonate head size and shape, in an attempt to determine the most appropriate dimensions for the obstetric forceps.
A recent review on ovarian stem cells by Horan and Williams entitled "Oocyte Stem Cells: Fact or Fantasy?" suggests that the debate on ovarian stem cells (OSCs) is still not over. They did not even discuss the presence of two distinct populations of stem cells in the ovary in their review. OSCs are located in the ovary surface epithelium and Tilly's group reported them in the size range of 5-8 μ...
