Intrauterine management of fetal parvovirus B19 infection. (1/34)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of our study was to determine the outcome of pregnancies after intrauterine management of fetal parvovirus B19 infection. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SUBJECTS: A total of 37 cases of maternofetal parvovirus B19 infection, 35 of which were associated with hydrops fetalis, were referred to our tertiary level center between 1989 and 1996. With regard to fetal hydrops, no apparent cause other than parvovirus B19 infection was found in any patient. METHODS: In all patients, cordocentesis was performed to assess the degree of fetal anemia. When anemia was present, cordocentesis was followed by intrauterine transfusion with packed red cells into the umbilical vein. Further management depended on the degree of fetal anemia and gestational age and included follow-up fetal blood sampling/transfusion as well as ultrasound examinations as deemed appropriate. RESULTS: Packed red cell transfusion was performed in 30 patients with significant fetal anemia (Z-score 1.6-7.8 below the mean for gestational age). The fetal hemoglobin values ranged from 2.1 to 9.6 g/dl. Serum levels of platelets in the transfusion group were 9-228 x 10(9)/l with Z-scores in the range of < 1 to 3.8 below the mean. During treatment and follow-up, there were five intrauterine deaths (13.5%), one neonatal death (2.7%) and 31 live births (83.8%). CONCLUSIONS: Fetal parvovirus infection can lead to marked anemia and hydrops formation. Cordocentesis allows precise assessment of fetal anemia which can then be corrected by intravenous transfusion. Under this regimen, the outcome proved favorable in the majority of fetuses, even those that were severely anemic.  (+info)

Maternal compound W serial measurements for the management of fetal hypothyroidsm. (2/34)

OBJECTIVE: The diagnosis of fetal hypothyroidism is based at present on measurements of TSH and free thyroxine (FT4) in fetal blood samples obtained by cordocentesis. The measurement of maternal serum and urinary concentrations of compound W, immunologically similar to but chromatographically distinct from diiodothyronine sulfate (T2S), has been advocated as a new possible marker for fetal hypothyroidism. DESIGN: In this paper, we measured serum compound W levels in 84 pregnant women, 20 with and 64 without thyroid disorders before and during specific treatment. Compound W was also assessed in fetal blood obtained by cordocentesis from 49 normal fetuses and 4 fetuses with suspected hypothyroidism due to transplacental passage of propylthiouracil (PTU). Compound W levels were measured by T2S RIA in maternal and fetal serum. To assess the possible usefulness of 3, 5,3'-triiodothyroacetic acid (TRIAC) for therapy of fetal hypothyroidism we evaluated the transplacental passage of TRIAC by administering the drug to four pregnant women before therapeutic abortion. RESULTS: In normal pregnancies, both maternal and fetal compound W levels increased progressively during gestation with a significant direct correlation (P<0.001, in both mothers and fetuses). Moreover, a significant positive correlation was observed between fetal compound W and fetal FT4 values (P<0.005), whereas no correlation was observed between maternal serum compound W and maternal FT4 in either euthyroid or hyperthyroid women, suggesting the fetal origin of compound W. The hypothyroid fetuses of PTU-treated mothers showed low compound W levels, and maternal compound W values were in the low normal range and did not show the typical increase during progression of gestation. A significant increase of maternal compound W was observed when the PTU dose was reduced. TRIAC was documented to cross the placental barrier and the treatment of a hyperthyroid pregnant woman on PTU caused the high fetal TSH levels and goiter to normalize. CONCLUSIONS: Serial measurements of 3,3'-T2S crossreactive materials (compound W and 3, 3'-diiodothyroacetic acid sulfate) in maternal blood and the administration of TRIAC to the mother may represent a useful and safe alternative to invasive techniques for the diagnosis and therapy of fetal hypothyroidism.  (+info)

Noninvasive diagnosis by Doppler ultrasonography of fetal anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. Collaborative Group for Doppler Assessment of the Blood Velocity in Anemic Fetuses. (3/34)

BACKGROUND: Invasive techniques such as amniocentesis and cordocentesis are used for diagnosis and treatment in fetuses at risk for anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. The purpose of our study was to determine the value of noninvasive measurements of the velocity of blood flow in the fetal middle cerebral artery for the diagnosis of fetal anemia. METHODS: We measured the hemoglobin concentration in blood obtained by cordocentesis and also the peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery in 111 fetuses at risk for anemia due to maternal red-cell alloimmunization. Peak systolic velocity was measured by Doppler velocimetry. To identify the fetuses with anemia, the hemoglobin values of those at risk were compared with the values in 265 normal fetuses. RESULTS: Fetal hemoglobin concentrations increased with increasing gestational age in the 265 normal fetuses. Among the 111 fetuses at risk for anemia, 41 fetuses did not have anemia; 35 had mild anemia; 4 had moderate anemia; and 31, including 12 with hydrops, had severe anemia. The sensitivity of an increased peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery for the prediction of moderate or severe anemia was 100 percent either in the presence or in the absence of hydrops (95 percent confidence interval, 86 to 100 percent for the 23 fetuses without hydrops), with a false positive rate of 12 percent. CONCLUSIONS: In fetuses without hydrops that are at risk because of maternal red-cell alloimmunization, moderate and severe anemia can be detected noninvasively by Doppler ultrasonography on the basis of an increase in the peak velocity of systolic blood flow in the middle cerebral artery.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of thrombocytopenia-absent-radius (TAR) syndrome. (4/34)

The prenatal diagnosis of thrombocytopenia-absent-radius (TAR) syndrome using ultrasound and cordocentesis in the 16th week of gestation is established. The sonographic findings detected in this case included bilateral absence of the radius and club hands with normal thumbs and metacarpals. Because of a high index of suspicion for the syndrome, cordocentesis for fetal blood analysis was performed. Thrombocytopenia, with a platelet count of 14,000/mm3, was identified. The pregnancy was electively terminated and subsequent findings confirmed the sonographic diagnosis. This report, to our knowledge, is one of a very limited number of cases published in the literature, in which the prenatal diagnosis of TAR syndrome was made.  (+info)

Fetal brain disruption sequence in a newborn infant with a history of cordocentesis at 21 weeks gestation. (5/34)

The case is reported of a full term infant with severe microcephaly, overlapping sutures, prominence of the occipital bone, and scalp rugae. No other associated malformations were observed. The only obstetric history of interest was the performance of cordocentesis at 21 weeks gestational age because of low maternal alpha fetoprotein levels. Ultrasound scans performed until then were normal. Cranial growth retardation was detected on ultrasound scanning at 25 weeks and intrauterine growth retardation as well as severe microcephaly at 34 weeks. Neuroimaging studies performed on the newborn infant showed intense cerebral atrophy in both hemispheres. Other complementary investigations gave negative results. A relation is proposed between the cordocentesis and the development of vascular disruption, which could have caused the fetal brain disruption sequence in this case.  (+info)

Controlled fetal blood-letting of the recipient twin as a new method for the treatment of severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome: preliminary results. (6/34)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the feasibility of withdrawal of blood from the recipient twin as a new method for the treatment of severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome. METHODS: Seven consecutive monozygotic monochorionic twin pregnancies affected by severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome were treated. Fetal blood was withdrawn from the recipient twin using cordocentesis. The volume of blood to be removed was determined using the formula for intrauterine blood transfusion of anemic fetuses. Fetal outcome was evaluated in relation to changes in the amniotic fluid and in growth curves (comparing the differences between the centiles of the estimated fetal weight before the procedure and the centiles of weight at birth), fetal mortality, gestational age at delivery, neonatal weight and neurological damage. RESULTS: Overall, seven of the 14 (50%) fetuses survived; at least one fetus survived in five (71%) pregnancies, both fetuses survived in two (29%) pregnancies, while in two (29%) pregnancies there were no survivors. No maternal complications were observed. At follow-up, one (14%) baby had minor neurological damage. CONCLUSIONS: Withdrawal of blood from the recipient twin in the treatment of severe twin-twin transfusion syndrome was associated with survival similar to that of the alternative techniques of serial amniodrainage and fetoscopic laser surgery, with some possible advantages such as reduced neurological damage compared with serial amniodrainage. It is also less invasive compared with fetoscopic laser surgery.  (+info)

Teaching ultrasound-guided invasive procedures in fetal medicine: learning curves with and without an electronic guidance system. (7/34)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the learning curves of inexperienced junior obstetrics/gynecology registrars for ultrasound-guided invasive procedures on a training model, with and without an electronic guidance system. STUDY DESIGN: Four junior registrars performed their first 100 procedures on a training model with a new electronic guidance system, and four other junior registrars performed their first 100 procedures on the same training model without using the guidance system. All procedures were performed using a free-hand technique. We evaluated the quality of the procedure, which we defined as the time spent with the entire needle clearly visualized on the screen over the total duration of the procedure. We constructed learning curves for the eight junior registrars for comparative analysis. RESULTS: Quality of the procedure increased over time for all trainees. The learning curves were significantly steeper for trainees using the electronic guidance system. Trainees using the electronic guidance system performed better in the middle of their learning curve (procedures 25-75). All trainees reached the same level of quality by the end of their 100 procedures. CONCLUSIONS: The automated electronic guidance system helps faster learning but, after 100 procedures on a training model, both groups reached the same level of quality.  (+info)

Comparison of feticide carried out by cordocentesis versus cardiac puncture. (8/34)

OBJECTIVE: Feticide may be achieved by the injection of strong potassium chloride (KCl) into the fetal circulation via the cardiac route, or less frequently, into the umbilical cord. Despite the relative frequency of this procedure, little published information is available on the subject. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of all feticide procedures carried out prior to legal pregnancy termination in mid trimester of pregnancy from January 1996 to July 2001, in a tertiary fetal medicine referral center. The effect of gestational age and the route of access to fetal the circulation on the dose of strong KCl required to achieve cardiac asystole was evaluated. RESULTS: A total of 106 women underwent the procedure of feticide during the study period. Gestational age had no effect on the dose of strong KCl. The median dose of KCl administered by cordocentesis (5 mL) was significantly less (P < 0.001) than the dose required when fetal cardiocentesis was performed for administration of the drug (10 mL). CONCLUSION: This is the first comparative study of feticide by the administration of strong KCl by fetal cardiocentesis and cordocentesis. The study demonstrates that both cardiac and umbilical routes can be used to achieve feticide effectively, without compromising maternal safety. A finding of this study is that significantly smaller doses of KCl were required to achieve fetal cardiac asystole when using the umbilical compared to the cardiac route, although this may be explained by differences in technique. Strong 15% KCl can safely be used to achieve feticide in volumes up to 20 mL for cardiocentesis and 8 mL for cordocentesis.  (+info)

A borehole guidance system for guiding a well being drilled with respect to an existing reference well includes a multi-sectioned casing in the reference well. A selected section of the casing, usually the lowest section, is electrically conductive and the next adjacent section is electrically nonconductive. A wireline connects a current source on the surface to the selected conductive section to produce a reference current in the well. The reference current is injected into the earth and dissipated so that the current produces a reference magnetic field surrounding the well which is unaffected by return currents.

The function of the Guidance subsystem is to not only generate demands during closed loop tracking, but also perform an initial search to locate the target position. A Stateflow® model is used to control the transfer between these differing modes of operation. Switching between modes is triggered by events generated either in Simulink, or internal to the Stateflow model. Controlling the way the Simulink model then behaves is achieved by changing the value of the variable Mode that is passed out to Simulink. This variable is used to switch between the differing control demands that can be generated. During target search the Stateflow model controls the tracker directly by sending demands to the seeker gimbals (Sigma). Target acquisition is flagged by the tracker once the target lies within the beamwidth of the seeker (Acquire), and after a short delay closed loop guidance starts. Stateflow is an ideal tool for rapidly defining all the operational modes, whether they are for normal operation, or ...

Large-for-delivery date babies, considered characteristic of diabetic pregnancy, are believed to result from fetal hyperinsulinemia. Paradoxically, infant birth weights tend to be low-for-delivery date in mothers with more severe diabetes. We tested the hypothesis that hypoxemia in such fetuses leads to sympathoadrenal stimulation and inhibition of insulin secretion; and, thus, produces a net reduction in the growth-promoting effects. Fetal sheep were prepared with chronic peripheral and adrenal cannulas. Fetal blood gases, lactate, norepinephrine, and epinephrine secretion rates; and plasma norepinephrine, glucose, and immunoreactive insulin concentrations were determined at 30-min intervals during a 2-h baseline period and a 4-h period of hyperglycemia divided into 2-h segments of hypoxemia (with and without alpha-blockade) and hyperoxia. Hypoxemia-hyperoxia sequences were varied randomly. Well-oxygenated fetuses responded to a threefold increase in glucose with a sixfold increase in plasma ...

The learn drive is generated by a guidance system hard-wired in the brain. This guidance system activates the reward centers upon detecting novel patterns in memory storage.}} == Terminology == I purposefully avoid the term curiosity, which is often used in psychology. Without precise understanding of the mechanisms of the learn drive, my whole reasoning against the present school system would collapse. The need for a simple and precise term will become clearer when I explain why I do not want to employ other established terms that might easily be misconstrued. Terms such as curiosity, novelty seeking, boredom susceptibility, openness to experience, need of cognition, and intellectual engagement are often used in various contexts to ...

Trident II depends upon the US GPS system for its MIRV accuracy and also for in flight corrections to its primary inertial guidance system. The US can switch off - or spoil/scramble - GPS transmissions at the flick of a switch. I have no doubt that is exactly what they would threaten to do if a UK unauthorized launch were in the offing - and actually do if they were caught on the hop. I also seriously doubt they do not have other hard-coded options available to them in the operational and guidance software systems as well. In fact Id be gobsmacked if they didnt ...

The diaphragm is a thin muscle that separates the chest from the belly. It moves up and down during breathing to help the lungs empty and fill with air. Sometimes when the baby is developing before birth, the muscles in the diaphragm do not grow together completely. This leaves an opening (hole) that allows the intestines to move up into the babys chest. The pressure of the intestines pushes the heart slightly to one side. This is called diaphragmatic hernia..

Maternal-fetal medicine is the branch of obstetrics that relates to the management of complicated and high-risk pregnancies. Medical complications of pregnancy may include heart disease, high blood pressure, preeclampsia, diabetes, infectious diseases and lupus.. Feinstein Institute researchers are conducting maternal-fetal medicine research in several areas that include the regulation of maternal and fetal inflammation and how inflammation during pregnancy correlates with various maternal and fetal/neonatal outcomes. They study conditions that negatively impact the health of pregnant mothers and their babies like preterm labor, preeclampsia, maternal infections, intrauterine growth restriction, obesity, and gestational diabetes. Scientists also are investigating the consequence of in utero exposure to maternal antibodies and its potential role in autism and post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition, the group has established the Generations Project, which aims to collect data and biological ...

It is crucial that a woman remain on the medications that have put her IBD in remission, Clark said.

Cities today are no longer seen as comprising only buildings, streets, squares, and parks. Text and images in public space, branding campaigns, street art, guidance systems, temporary installations, processual and interactive design, and cartographic illustrations influence our use, experience, and perception of the city, as do signage, urban furnishings, vehicles, infrastructures, and the appearance of public façades. The term "Environmental Graphic Design" has established itself in this field to denote a universal design at the interface of the disciplines of architecture, graphic design, product design, and urban planning. Originally coined in order to convey the new complexity of urban mega-structures, it has come to be used at almost all levels of urban design. Graphic design, for example, now substantially shapes not only the visible surfaces of a city but also its infrastructure and everyday life.. Such discursive and symbolic representations indicate an effort to treat cities as ...

The characteristics of adult patients with chronic active Epstein-Barr virus infection (adult-onset CAEBV) are poorly recognized, hindering early diagnosis and an improved prognosis. Adult-onset CAEBV (n = 54) diagnosed between 2005 and 2015 were conducted. Adult-onset was defined as an estimated age of onset ≥15 years. To characterize the clinical features of adult-onset CAEBV, we compared them to those of pediatric-onset (estimated age of onset ,15 years) patients (n = 75). We compared the prognosis of adult-onset CAEBV with that for patients with nasal-type (n = 37) and non-nasal-type (n = 45) extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL ...
Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians, also called perinatologists, are obstetricians who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing care of expectant mothers and their unborn babies, who may be at high risk for special health problems.. Referral to a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist should not cause undue alarm for expectant mothers. It does not necessarily mean the pregnancy will be a difficult one. Nor does it mean the baby will have health problems. Most often, it is simply a precautionary measure designed to protect both mother and a baby, while putting the expectant parents minds at ease.. Services provided by Maternal-Fetal Medicine physicians include maternal and fetal medicine care, monitoring, ultrasound examinations, genetic testing, state-of-the-art diagnostic tests, tests for fetal well-being and more.. As the due date approaches, the Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician remains in close contact with the obstetrician who will deliver the baby and, if needed, the neonatologist ...

Haemoglobin synthesis was studied in fetal blood samples obtained at 17 to 20 weeks gestation in 22 women at risk of carrying a fetus with homozygous beta-thalassaemia. A presumptive diagnosis of homozygous beta-thalassaemia was made in four cases, and the pregnancy was terminated. An inconclusive answer was obtained in one case, and the patient also chose to have her pregnancy terminated. Two fetuses were lost as a result of the procedure. Of the remaining 15 pregnancies, 13 proceeded to term and two to 36 weeks; in each case a normal infant or one heterozygous for beta-thalassaemia was delivered. Current efforts should be directed towards improving the blood sampling technology so that fetal blood sampling can be used widely in those countries where thalassaemia is a major problem. ...
