(1/40) Acute renal failure in Central Anatolia.

BACKGROUND: The aetiological spectrum of acute renal failure (ARF) has changed in developed countries. It was the purpose of the study to evaluate whether similar changes have occurred in this part of the world as well. METHODS: In a prospective study a total of 439 patients with ARF were evaluated. They had been admitted to one hospital during two successive periods, i.e. 1983-1990 and 1991-1997. RESULTS: Of 439 patients with ARF, 116 were admitted in 1983-1990 (first period) and 323 in 1991-1997 (second period). The age of presentation increased from 49.8+/-6.2 years in the first period to 58.8+/-16.4 years in the second. Medical causes were present in 259 cases (59%), surgical causes in 110 cases (25%), and obstetric causes in 70 cases (16%). The frequency of surgical cases decreased from 28.4% in the first period to 23.8% in the second period. The respective figures for obstetric cases were 18.9% and 14.8%. Mortality did not change with time (33.6% in the first and 31.0% in the second period); the overall mortality was 31.7%. The mortality was higher for surgical (45.5%) than for obstetric (27.8%) and medical ARF (24.3%). CONCLUSION: In the mid-1970s, the most common causes of ARF in Turkey were obstetric complications and septic abortion. The aetiological spectrum of ARF has changed and today medical causes predominate. ARF resulting from septic abortion has become rare, possibly because of liberalization of abortion in 1983 in Turkey.  (+info)

(2/40) Genital mycoplasmal infections: their relation to prematurity and other abnormalities of reproduction.

The genital mycoplasmas, Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum eT-mycoplasmas) are common vaginal organisms. They are acquired primarily through sexual contact. There is evidence, some of it highly suggestive, linking the genital mycoplasmas to involuntary infertility, spontaneous abortion and low birth weight. Additional controlled treatment studies are needed in each of these areas to assess fully the role of the genital mycoplasmas. M. hominis has the potential to invade the blood stream and is responsible for some instances of fever following abortion and of postpartum fever.  (+info)

(3/40) Emergence of group B streptococci in obstetric and perinatal infections.

A retrospective study of obstetric and perinatal illness due to group B streptococci during 1972-4 based on bacteriological referrals from Aberdeen Maternity Hospital and Special Nursery disclosed (1) a wide spectrum of maternal morbidity, particularly associated with amniotomy and a prolonged rupture-delivery interval, and (2) the emergence of the group B streptococcus as a major cause of serious neonatal infection in infants of low birth weight, often in the absence of maternal pyrexia. The group B isolates appeared to show a previously undocumented increased resistance to the aminoglycosides gentamicin and kanamycin. A prospective study of 369 random deliveries in Aberdeen Maternity Hospital showed a group B vaginal carriage rate of 49/1000; a neonatal colonization rate of 19/1000; maternal and neonatal morbidity rates of 16 and 2-7/1000, respectively; and an overall neonatal mortality of 1/1000 live births.  (+info)

(4/40) Group B streptococcal meningitis complicating elective abortion: report of 2 cases.

The incidence of invasive disease due to Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococcus [GBS]) in adults is on the rise; however, meningitis in adults due to GBS remains rare. We report 2 cases of GBS meningitis complicating elective abortion, 1 of which was a septic incomplete abortion. Only 1 case of bacterial meningitis complicating elective abortion has been reported previously.  (+info)

(7/40) Effects of Gram-positive bacterial pathogens in ewes: peptidoglycan as a potential mediator of interruption of early pregnancy.

Bacterial cell walls contain peptidoglycan (PTG), which, among other actions, induces fever. The present experiment evaluated the effects of PTG treatment on early pregnancy and blood plasma concentrations of reproductive hormones. Ewes were injected i.v. with saline or 15, 30 or 60 microg kg(-1) sonicated PTG (Streptococcus pyogenes) on day 5 after mating. Each dose of PTG induced fever. Pregnancy rate at day 25 was not related to incidence of fever but tended to differ among treatments (control, 100%; low, 100%; medium, 67%; high, 60%; P < 0.08). Combined pregnancy rate in ewes from control and low dose groups (100%) was greater than that in ewes from medium and high dose groups (64%, P < 0.01). Ewes with high 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-prostaglandin F(2alpha) (PGFM) concentrations had lower pregnancy rates (6 of 10) than those with low concentrations of PGFM (11 of 11; P < 0.05). Mean cortisol concentrations were higher in treated (2.8 +/- 0.28 microg dl(-1)) than in control (1.1 +/- 0.03 microg dl(-1)) ewes (P < 0.01); the pattern of secretion was biphasic and increased in all treated ewes (P < 0.01). Neither means nor profiles of oestradiol differed with treatment. Mean concentrations and the pattern of concentrations of progesterone were reduced in all treated ewes, as indicated by the time by treatment and linear interaction with treatment (1.2 +/- 0.1 versus 1.6 +/- 0.1 ng ml(-1), P < 0.01). Patterns of LH pulses did not differ from 0 to 4 h or 24 to 28 h after treatment; mean plasma LH concentration was lower in ewes treated with 0, 15 or 30 microg PTG kg(-1) than with 60 microg PTG kg(-1) (P < 0.01). Pregnancy status was not related to plasma concentrations or patterns of LH, oestradiol, progesterone or cortisol. Inflammatory mediators, such as PGF(2alpha), may act directly on the embryo or uterus in ewes treated with PTG.  (+info)

(8/40) Haemophilus influenzae septic abortion.

BACKGROUND: Haemophilus influenzae septic abortion is typically caused by nontypeable strains of the organism. Furthermore, nontypeable species with a special affinity for the genital tract are the most frequent isolates encountered, and an ascending vaginal or cervical infection is often the suspected route of transmission. CASE: A 39-year-old woman at 8 weeks gestation who underwent dilation, evacuation, and curettage for embryonic demise had clinical evidence for sepsis and isolation of a nontypeable, ampicillin resistant H. influenzae from blood cultures. Although an ascending vaginal infection was suspected, the route of transmission was not determined. CONCLUSION: Nontypeable strains of. H. influenzae have demonstrated increased beta-lactamase activity, and ampicillin, formerly the treatment of choice, should be used only if isolate susceptibility is known.  (+info)
