Umbilical Cord Ulcer and Intrauterine Death in Fetal Intestinal Atresia.

To examine the incidence of umbilical cord ulcer (UCU) that causes intrauterine fetal death (IUFD) in fetal duodenal or jejunoileal atresia and the association between UCU and bile acid concentrations...

Umbilical cord coiling index for the prediction of adverse pregnancy outcomes: a meta-analysis and sequential analysis.

AbstractPurpose: To evaluate the potential association of abnormal cord coiling with adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Hemorrhage from Umbilical Cord Ulceration Identified on Real-Time Ultrasound in a Fetus with Duodenal Atresia.

Umbilical cord ulceration has been associated with congenital upper intestinal (duodenal or jejunal) atresia and can lead to fatal fetal intrauterine hemorrhage. We report a case of spontaneous hemorr...

Short-Term Flow Changes in Monochorionic Survivor Twins after Ultrasound-Guided Umbilical Cord Occlusion.

Umbilical Cord Length Index for Prediction of Cord Abnormalities Before Delivery

The umbilical cord plays an essential role in intrauterine life. It is the pathway between mother, placenta and fetus during pregnancy and delivery. Complete cord occlusion often leads to ...

Severing Nuchal Cord at the Time of Delivery.

Umbilical cord often becomes encircled around portions of the fetus, usually the neck. The incidence ranges from 1 loop in 21% to 3 loops in 0.2%. In this study we wish to assessed the pra...

Umbilical Cord Clamping: What Are the Benefits

Umbilical cord clumping consists in the binding of the umbilical cord by nipper to interrupt blood flow from placenta to foetus. Umbilical cord can be clamped within 30s or at least 1 min ...

Fetal Umbilical Cord Blood (UCB) Transplant for Lysosomal Storage Diseases

The purpose of this study is to determine if it is safe to administer unrelated umbilical cord blood to pregnant women in their first trimester of pregnancy with a fetus that has a known d...

The Role of Umbilical Cord Thickness in Prediction of Fetal Macrosomia in Patients With Gestational Diabetes Mellitus

The aim of this work is the prediction of fetal macrosomia by measuring: 1. HbA1C. 2. Umbilical cord thickness. 3. Interventricular septum thickness.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complication of pregnancy in which the UMBILICAL CORD wraps around the fetal neck once or multiple times. In some cases, cord entanglement around fetal neck may not affect pregnancy outcome significantly. In others, the nuchal cord may lead to restricted fetal blood flow, oxygen transport, fetal development, fetal movement, and complicated delivery at birth.

Blood of the fetus. Exchange of nutrients and waste between the fetal and maternal blood occurs via the PLACENTA. The cord blood is blood contained in the umbilical vessels (UMBILICAL CORD) at the time of delivery.

Pregnancy complication where fetal blood vessels, normally inside the umbilical cord, are left unprotected and cross FETAL MEMBRANES. It is associated with antepartum bleeding and FETAL DEATH and STILLBIRTH due to exsanguination.

Venous vessels in the umbilical cord. They carry oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood from the mother to the FETUS via the PLACENTA. In humans, there is normally one umbilical vein.

Specialized arterial vessels in the umbilical cord. They carry waste and deoxygenated blood from the FETUS to the mother via the PLACENTA. In humans, there are usually two umbilical arteries but sometimes one.
