Pregnancy after atrial repair for transposition of the great arteries. (1/188)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the risk of pregnancy in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) who have undergone atrial repair. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis (1962-94) of 342 TGA patients who underwent atrial repair. Of 231 known late survivors, 48 were women over 18 years old who were interviewed about possible reproductive plans and previous pregnancies. As a control, comparison was made with data of 57 500 women (mean age 26 years) obtained from the Swiss Statistical Bank in Bern. RESULTS: Mean follow up was 13.7 years; 66% remained asymptomatic, 29% had mild to moderate cardiac symptoms, and 5% suffered from severe cardiac symptoms (New York Heart Association grade III-IV). Thirty six of the 48 women wished to bear children and, to date, there have been 10 live births, two spontaneous first trimester abortions, and one induced abortion at 16 weeks. During pregnancy there was one case of cardiac deterioration and two cases of pneumonia. There was no evidence of congenital heart disease in the children. CONCLUSIONS: In this relatively small series the completion of pregnancy in women with TGA who had undergone atrial repair and who had normal functional cardiac status was uncomplicated  (+info)

Dystrophic calcification of the fetal myocardium. (2/188)

Intramural cardiac masses were detected antenatally in three fetuses by echocardiography. The masses were initially thought to be rhabdomyomas. All three pregnancies were terminated and histology showed dystrophic calcification in all, with no evidence of tumour. Therefore, dystrophic calcification of the fetal myocardium may have a similar appearance to single or multiple rhabdomyomas. This should be considered when counselling parents after detection of masses in the fetal heart, particularly when considering the risk of associated tuberous sclerosis.  (+info)

First-trimester ultrasound diagnosis of holoprosencephaly: three case reports. (3/188)

We present three cases of fetal holoprosencephaly diagnosed by transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound examinations at 10 and 13 weeks' gestation. The diagnosis was based on two sonographic criteria: first, the intracranial finding of a single ventricle with a cerebral mantle and no visible midline structures but fusion of the thalami and corpus striatum; and, second, facial abnormalities, including hypotelorism. The ultrasound findings were confirmed by embryoscopy before abortion in one case and by pathological examination after abortion in two cases. Chromosome study of the three fetuses showed trisomy 18, triploidy and mosaic 18p deletion and duplication.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of alobar holoprosencephaly at 10 weeks of gestation. (4/188)

Alobar holoprosencephaly is an intracranial abnormality characterized by failure of proper cleavage of the prosencephalon, accompanied by incomplete midfacial development. The prenatal sonographic diagnosis of alobar holoprosencephaly was first described in 1984; however, there have been only two reports of alobar holoprosencephaly diagnosed in the first trimester. We report a case of alobar holoprosencephaly diagnosed at 10 weeks of gestation.  (+info)

Sonographic features of fetal trisomy 18 at 13 and 14 weeks: four case reports. (5/188)

Fetal trisomy 18 is the second most common multiple malformation syndrome. We present four cases of trisomy 18 with multiple sonographic abnormalities at 13 and 14 weeks of gestation. These cases demonstrated that fetal hand deformities can be a tell-tale sign of trisomy 18 with or without increased nuchal translucency at this gestation.  (+info)

Immunoregulatory activity of decidua in spontaneous early pregnancy loss. (6/188)

The present study aimed to address whether the immunoregulatory properties of the molecules secreted within decidua were altered in women suffering spontaneous miscarriage, compared with apparently normal fertile women. Unfractionated decidual cells from 22 women undergoing therapeutic pregnancy terminations and 25 women experiencing a sporadic spontaneous early pregnancy loss were isolated, cultured for 24 h and 72 h, and supernatants were collected. The effect of decidual supernatants on phytohaemagglutinin (PHA)-induced peripheral blood lymphocyte proliferation was investigated. Immunosuppressive activity was detected in 24 h cell culture supernatants from 91% of therapeutic abortion cases compared with only 64% of spontaneous abortion samples; 72 h supernatants from all of therapeutic abortion samples and 90% of spontaneous abortion cases suppressed lymphoproliferation. The remaining spontaneous abortion samples (36% of 24 h supernatants; 10% of 72 h supernatants) enhanced or had no effect on lymphocyte proliferation. Enhancement of lymphocyte proliferation was not observed in therapeutic abortion samples, and the association between stimulation of cell proliferation and spontaneous abortion was significant for 24 h decidual cell supernatants at 50% concentration (P = 0.02). These findings suggest that in a subgroup of women experiencing spontaneous early pregnancy loss, soluble factors within decidua display altered immune responses that may be implicated in the complex process of fetal rejection.  (+info)

Evolution and long term outcome in cases with fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease: Italian multicentre study. Fetal Cardiology Study Group of the Italian Society of Pediatric Cardiology. (7/188)

OBJECTIVES: To analyse the evolution and outcome in utero and after birth of infants with a fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease. DESIGN: Inclusion criteria were the fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease, confirmed postnatally or postmortem, and a complete follow up in utero and after birth. SETTING: 20 centres operating prenatal echocardiographic screening. PATIENTS: 847 cases were included in the study. Gestational age at diagnosis ranged from 15-39 weeks; in 370 cases (43.7%) the diagnosis was made before 24 weeks' gestation. RESULTS: 245/847 cases (28.9%) were terminated during pregnancy, 227 following early diagnosis; 128/245 cases (52. 2%) had associated anomalies and 117/245 (47.8%) had serious congenital heart disease. Of the remaining 602 cases that continued the pregnancy, 72 (11.9%) died in utero, 259 (43%) died postnatally (83 after surgery or invasive procedures), and 271 infants (45%) survived and presently range in age from 18 months to 13 years old. The mortality rate was higher in cases with associated extracardiac or chromosomal anomalies (68% and 74% of cases continuing pregnancy, respectively), and in cases with heart failure and complex cardiac defects. CONCLUSIONS: The data confirm a relevant fetal and postnatal loss in cases with complex congenital heart disease, and major clinical use of prenatal diagnosis in the management of ductus dependent anomalies. Negative prognostic factors for the outcome were associated anomalies and heart failure.  (+info)

Placental transfer of fentanyl in early human pregnancy and its detection in fetal brain. (8/188)

We have investigated the transfer of fentanyl across the early human placenta in 38 women (8-14 weeks' gestation) undergoing termination of pregnancy. After administration of a bolus dose of fentanyl 2 micrograms kg-1 at induction of anaesthesia, maternal blood n = 38), placenta (n = 38), amniotic fluid (n = 38) and fetal brain (n = 7) samples were collected and assayed for fentanyl by radioimmunoassay. Fentanyl was detected in all placental and fetal brain samples but not in amniotic fluid. There was a rapid decrease in fentanyl concentrations in maternal serum after the bolus but placental concentrations had not started to decline 30 min later. There was no difference in placental drug concentrations at different gestational ages. These data suggest that there is rapid transfer of fentanyl to the fetus in early pregnancy and that the drug remains in fetal tissue for some time after the initial dose is given to the mother.  (+info)

WICHITA, KS - The autopsy report of a Texas teenager who died here last January reveals details of a horrific death caused by complications of a third-trimester abortion received at Womens Health Care Services at the hands of the notorious George R. Tiller. According to the ten-page document released August 24, 19-year old Christin A. Gilbert "died as a result of complication of a therapeutic abortion. Most likely the mechanism of death is sepsis." Sepsis is a systemic response to infection, which causes organ failure and death in severe cases. Sepsis causes coagulation of the blood in the infected areas resulting in very poor blood flow leading to organ failure. According to the web site sepsis.com early diagnosis and treatment is critical to the survivability of a patient with sepsis. However, documents obtained by Operation Rescue indicate that Gilberts condition was not diagnosed and treated promptly, contributing to her death. Dr. Patrick Johnston reviewed the autopsy report for Operation ...

Ms Doyle-Prices full response presents other issues. Mr Shannon and Mr Vickers both asked for statistics pertaining to "the number of women expecting a baby with a disability who (a) did and (b) did not have an abortion in each of the last three years". Ms Doyle-Price responded with reference to Ground E for abortion (risk that the child would be born seriously handicapped"), which is problematic for a number of reasons:. a). Not all "disabilities" are qualified as "serious handicaps", and the expectant mother of a "disabled" but not "seriously handicapped" child can still claim a belief in significant potential risk to her mental health (Ground C), without consideration for the fact that proceeding with abortion also poses risks to her mental health. This is expanded on in Abortion Mis-certification: Mental health grounds as a pretext for therapeutic abortion3. The response might be more accurate for the question asked, if an attempt was made to present the number of abortions under any ...
Abortion Pills can be utilized something like 24 weeks of pregnancy. Whats in store relies on upon whether the pregnancy is not exactly or over ten weeks. Ladies take two medicines one to two days separated. The first medication to take is Mifeprex. It prevents one of the hormones (progesterone) that is imperative for early pregnancies to create and further develop. By hindering this hormone, the pregnancy stops, and the cervix of the uterus starts to mellow and turn delicate. The second pharmaceutical is Misoprostol, a prostaglandin that causes the uterus to contract (like work) and oust the pregnancy. This causes issues and bleeding. After two weeks you ought to return for a follow-up ultrasound examination to check that your uterus is void and that the fetus removal was finished..

Associating the anti-vax propaganda with a pro-life position would be a ideological win for anti-vaxxers. That is why Bartons distortion of the facts requires a response. If pro-life people think that actual fetal parts from abortions are in vaccines, some might refuse vaccinations on that basis. What is the real situation?. In fact, vaccine methods were developed from cells derived from fetuses secured via therapeutic abortions before abortion was legal. The two cell lines in use today came from two subsequent abortions outside the U.S. Fetal cells allow the development of vaccine production indefinitely. As far as I can determine, the abortions were not conducted for the purpose of making vaccines, and no new abortions have taken place to create new vaccines. In other words, vaccines dont encourage abortion, nor do vaccines use parts of a fetus in the vaccine (see this helpful summary for more information).. If vaccine use was a moral concern for a pro-life position, one would expect the ...
When I found myself pregnant at the age of 19 in an era when pregnancy without a partner was not acceptable and one was generally looked down upon for their wayward ways, and when abortion was not legal or a viable option, I decided that I would put the baby up for adoption. When my daughter was born at the old Letterman Hospital with Dr. Harry Beaver performing the delivery, I took one look at her and knew she was mine for the long haul. It turned out that I had passed on to my lovely daughter a genetic mutation that occurred spontaneously at conception and, to be discovered much later, it was so rare that there are only 17 other known cases in the world. Initially the doctors thought that the physical problems were due to rubella (german measles) that I had been exposed to while I worked as a corspeman in the hospital at Hamilton AFB. Due to this and the fact at that time the state was trying legalize therapeutic abortions, my daughter and I were interviewed by Walter Cronkite for his tv show. ...

The issue of abortion rights was a controversial subject for some at Amnesty. But many of those who opted out of campaigning in this area have been touched by the story of Beatriz in El Salvador. This is a case which takes the argument beyond the purely academic and moralistic and plants it firmly in the realms of real-life human story: a young woman at grave risk of losing her life, her young son at risk of losing his mother.. Beatriz is just 22 years old and is expecting her second child. She suffers from lupus, which has weakened her kidneys, and suffered serious complications during her previous pregnancy. Doctors have confirmed that she is at high risk of a pregnancy-related death. Scans have confirmed that the foetus is lacking a large part of the brain and skull and will almost certainly die before birth or within a few hours or days of birth.. Surely in these circumstances a therapeutic abortion is a sensible and humane response to save Beatriz further unnecessary suffering?. Indeed, ...

Thirty-nine percent of the infants were delivered prematurely and weighed 2,714 ± 709 g; 28% were ...
The CEDEAO/ECOWAS Harmonised Code of Ethics and Practice (2013) (which has no indication of being an official government document) states in Article 21 in Section I (general duties of practitioners): "Voluntary interruption of pregnancy cannot be practiced unless otherwise provided for by law. However, the practitioner is always free to refuse to perform such an act, but he should inform the person concerned of the condition and month of pregnancy as provided for by law." However, in Section V which deals with practitioners duties towards patients, the Code states in Article 141: "A therapeutic abortion may be performed if the intervention is the only means to save the life of the mother. When the safety of the mother that is seriously threatened requires a termination of pregnancy or the utilization of a therapeutic intervention that is capable of interrupting the pregnancy, the practitioner must consult at least two other doctors chosen for their competence, who, after review of the case, ...

... is an abnormality of brain development that also affects the head and face. Normally, the brain divides into two halves (hemispheres) during early development. Holoprosencephaly occurs when the brain fails to divide properly into the right and left hemispheres. There are four types of holoprosencephaly according to the degree of brain division. From most to least severe, the types are known as alobar, semi-lobar, lobar, and middle interhemispheric variant (MIHV). The most severely affected individuals have one central eye (cyclopia) and a tubular nasal structure (proboscis) located above the eye. In the less severe forms, the brain is partially divided and the eyes are usually set close together (hypotelorism). Holoprosencephaly can be caused by mutations in a single gene, chromosome abnormalities, or substances that cause birth defects (teratogens ...
An estimated 25% of all pregnancies worldwide ended in induced abortion. Similarly, in the United States, close to one in four women will have an abortion during her reproductive life. Using standards set by the World Health Organization, abortion is considered medically safe when recommended methods are used by trained persons. Having an abortion does not make it harder to get pregnant again. Abortions do not harm your health, and they do not harm the health of your future babies.. If you are pregnant and considering an abortion, only you can know if the decision is right for you. It is your fundamental right to choose. You may or may not want to talk to a friend or family member, your partner, or someone else you trust. You can always talk to a supportive health care provider or clinics that provide abortion services. It is often helpful to share your thoughts and feelings about this decision with people who will support you no matter what you decide. Asking others for their input may be ...

Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is a defect of midline forebrain development that occurs soon after conception. It has a prevalence of 1 in 250 during early embryonic development, and 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 20,000 at term. In live born infants, the abnormalities associated with HPE are divided into three main categories: alobar, semilobar, and lobar HPE. A fourth variant, middle interhemispheric variant, has also been recognized. The purpose of this study is to increase our understanding of the genetic and clinical manifestations of HPE through detailed physical, psychological, developmental, neurologic, endocrinologic, and radiologic studies. We will examine the spectrum of clinical characteristics of HPE to facilitate early diagnosis and clinical management, including genetic counseling. Finally, we plan to assess the psychosocial impact of HPE on the family as a unit. Most patients and their families will be seen at the NIH Clinical Center. A subset may be examined outside the NIH, and a further subset, ...

An abdominal pregnancy can be regarded as a form of an ectopic pregnancy where the embryo or fetus is growing and developing outside the womb in the abdomen, but not in the Fallopian tube, ovary or broad ligament. While rare, abdominal pregnancies have a higher chance of maternal mortality, perinatal mortality and morbidity compared to normal and ectopic pregnancies; on occasion, however, a healthy viable infant can be delivered. Because tubal, ovarian and broad ligament pregnancies are as difficult to diagnose and treat as abdominal pregnancies, their exclusion from the most common definition of abdominal pregnancy has been debated. Others-in the minority-are of the view that abdominal pregnancy should be defined by a placenta implanted into the peritoneum. Symptoms may include abdominal pain or vaginal bleeding during pregnancy. As this is nonspecific in areas where ultrasound is not available the diagnosis was often only discovered during surgery to investigate the abnormal symptoms. They are ...
An interstitial pregnancy is a uterine but ectopic pregnancy; the pregnancy is located outside the uterine cavity in that part of the fallopian tube that penetrates the muscular layer of the uterus. The term cornual pregnancy is sometimes used as a synonym, but remains ambiguous as it is also applied to indicate the presence of a pregnancy located within the cavity in one of the two upper "horns" of a bicornuate uterus. Interstitial pregnancies have a higher mortality than ectopics in general. The part of the Fallopian tube that is located in the uterine wall and connects the remainder of the tube to the endometrial cavity is called its "interstitial" part, hence the term "interstitial pregnancy"; it has a length of 1-2 cm and a width of 0.7 cm. Its borders are the opening (ostium) of the tube to the endometrial cavity within the uterus and, laterally, the visible narrow segment of the tube. The area is well supplied by the Sampson artery which is connected to both the uterine and the ovarian ...

Third, have letters printed up from The Texas Justice Foundation and keep them on file. This organization is connected with Alliance Defense Foundation. They connect lawyers in the local areas with those who are in coercive situations. There are letters to the girl, the parents and also the abortionist. Sometimes the abortionist realizes that performing that abortion on a girl against her will could be big trouble. If the letter is intercepted by the abortionist, oftentimes they will refuse to do the abortion. Of course, we do know there are many abortionists who get away with forced abortions and are protected by the authorities. Several documented cases involving Planned Parenthood revealed that they covered up forced abortions on young girls. Planned Parenthood is mandated by law to contact the authorities, yet we see time and time again they do not. Yes, these Planned Parenthoods are STILL in operation, so you see that this is a huge problem with very little accountability ...
In the first six months of 2011, states enacted 162 new provisions related to reproductive health and rights. Fully 49% of these new laws seek to restrict access to abortion services, a sharp increase from 2010, when 26% of new laws restricted abortion. The 80 abortion restrictions enacted this year are more than double the previous record of 34 abortion restrictions enacted in 2005-and more than triple the 23 enacted in 2010. All of these new provisions were enacted in just 19 states.
The occurrence of eclampsia in an extra uterine pregnancy is a very rare entity. We report a case of a patient with eclampsia and advanced extra-uterine pregnancy. The fits were controlled with diazepam and the patient had laparotomy for the evacuation of the fetus from the abdominal cavity. She had an uneventful post operative recovery and was discharged home in good health after 10 days.
From the beginning of 2011 through August 2015, states enacted 287 new legal restrictions on access to abortion care.1 For women in large swaths of the United States, access to abortion services is more limited now than at any time since Roe v.

Downloadable! Although it is commonly believed that trade liberalization results in higher GDP, little is known about its effects on poverty and inequality. This paper uses the sharp trade liberalization in India in 1991, spurred to a large extent by external factors, to measure the causal impact of trade liberalization on poverty and inequality in districts in India. Variation in pre-liberalization industrial composition across districts in India and the variation in the degree of liberalization across industries allow for a difference-in-difference approach, establishing whether certain areas benefited more from, or bore a disproportionate share of the burden of liberalization. In rural districts where industries more exposed to liberalization were concentrated, poverty incidence and depth decreased by less as a result of trade liberalization, a setback of about 15 percent of Indias progress in poverty reduction over the 1990s. The results are robust to pre-reform trends, convergence and time-varying
Downloadable! We examine the effect of regionalism on unilateral trade liberalization using industry-level data on applied MFN tariffs and bilateral preferences for ten Latin American countries from 1990 to 2001. We find that preferential tariff reduction in a given sector leads to a reduction in the external (MFN) tariff in that sector. External liberalization is greater if preferences are granted to important suppliers. However, these complementarity effects of preferential liberalization on external liberalization do not arise in customs unions. Overall, our results suggest that concerns about a negative effect of preferential liberalization on external trade liberalization are unfounded.
A relatively common birth defect of the brain, which often also affects facial features, causing closely spaced eyes, small head size, and sometimes clefts of the lip and roof of the mouth. Not all individuals with holoprosencephaly (HPE) are affected to the same degree, even in families where more than one individual has this predisposition. Holoprosencephaly is characterized by the failure of the prosencephalon (the forebrain of the embryo) to develop. During normal development, the forebrain is formed and the face begins to develop in the fifth and sixth weeks of pregnancy. Holoprosencephaly is caused by a failure of the embryos forebrain to divide to form bilateral cerebral hemispheres (the left and right halves of the brain), causing defects in the development of the face and in brain structure and function. There are three classifications of holoprosencephaly. Alobar holoprosencephaly, the most serious form in which the brain fails to separate, is usually associated with severe facial ...

This is the fabled "life of the mother" abortion excuse that were sure to hear ad nauseum anytime any state attempts to pass even the most meager regulations on the abortion industry.

Abortion is the termination and removal of a fetus or an embryo before it can live on its own. Abortions are normally done when one is not ready for the baby or the pregnancy was not planned for.

Abortion is a termination of pregnancy that can be either spontaneous or induced. Spontaneous abortions are often called miscarriages. Induced abortion artificially ends the pregnant and, depending on how far the pregnancy has advanced, determines the method used.. The most commonly performed induced abortion procedure is the suction D and C (dilation and curettage) method. It is performed up to 12 weeks of pregnancy and sometimes up to 14 weeks. After that, a D and E (dilation and evacuation) abortion is usually performed.
