Individual growth patterns in the first trimester: evidence for difference in embryonic and fetal growth rates. (1/203)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate individual fetal growth during the first trimester in pregnancies resulting from spontaneous and in vitro fertilization (IVF). METHODS: The growth of 11 fetuses conceived by spontaneous fertilization (known dates of ovulation) in nine patients and 15 fetuses conceived by IVF in 12 patients were evaluated at weekly intervals from 6 weeks, menstrual age, to 14 weeks. Fetal length was determined at each examination. Measures of fetal length included the crown-rump length (CRL), maximum straight line length (MSLL) and maximum axial length (MAL). Comparisons of CRL and MSLL to MAL were carried out. The MSLL was used as the measure of length except when the MAL was available. Linear and quadratic functions were fitted to the complete data sets of individual fetuses in the two groups. Individual data sets from ten fetuses in each group were then divided into early and late growth phases, and linear functions were fitted to each data subset. Start points and pivotal points for each fetus were estimated from the coefficients of these two functions. Growth in these two groups of fetuses was compared, on the basis of slope values. RESULTS: Evaluation of length measures indicated that, before 8 weeks, only MSLL could be measured. After 8 weeks, all three measures could be obtained, with the MAL being the largest. Both the linear and quadratic models performed well with individual data sets (mean R2(+/- SD): linear 98.1 (1.0)%; quadratic 99.4 (0.4)%), with no differences found between spontaneous and IVF groups (maximum possible differences in mean slopes (95% probability): 5-8%). Similar findings were obtained for the early and late growth phase data subsets. Slope values in the early and late growth phases showed low variability (CV: early 13.5%; late 11.6%), but were significantly different (early 0.72 (+/- 0.10 SD) cm/week; late 1.21 (+/- 0.14 SD) cm/week). The mean start point was 5.9 (+/- 0.3 SD) weeks' menstrual age, while the mean pivotal point was 9.2 (+/- 0.7 SD) weeks, menstrual age. CONCLUSIONS: First-trimester growth studies in individual fetuses indicate that there is a change in length growth rate between 9 and 10 weeks, menstrual age. This is consistent with a shift in development from organogenesis to growth. These results can be used for more accurate assessment of first-trimester growth and may aid in the detection of fetal problems that manifest themselves as growth abnormalities.  (+info)

The 'Mickey Mouse' sign and the diagnosis of anencephaly in early pregnancy. (2/203)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the sonographic screening for anencephaly in the first trimester in a low-risk obstetric population. METHODS: Since 1994, 5388 women attended our clinic for a first-trimester scan (11-14 weeks of gestation) and screening for structural and chromosomal abnormalities. The patients underwent transabdominal scanning, and transvaginal scanning if necessary. RESULTS: The ultrasonographic appearances of anencephaly in the first trimester are different from the familiar second-trimester signs. The cerebral hemispheres are present and exposed to the surrounding amniotic fluid. The ultrasound appearances in the coronal section of the head are best described as 'Mickey Mouse face'. There were six cases of anencephaly (incidence 1.1:1000). All cases were diagnosed in the first trimester and five demonstrated this sign. There were no false-positive diagnoses. The crown-rump length was significantly reduced in all affected fetuses. CONCLUSION: First-trimester ultrasonographic diagnosis of anencephaly is accurate, but sonographers should be familiar with the ultrasound appearances that are different from those in the second trimester.  (+info)

Biometrical threshold of biparietal diameter for certain fetal sex assignment by ultrasound. (3/203)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to establish the biometric threshold of biparietal diameter (BPD), assumed to be an independent variable of gestational age, at which 100% accuracy in the assessment of fetal sex by ultrasonography is achievable. METHODS: Transvaginal and/or transabdominal sonography was used for detecting the 'sagittal sign' as a marker of fetal sex in 385 fetuses with BPD between 18 and 29 mm. The results of ultrasound examination were compared with sex at birth or with karyotype obtained from amniotic fluid cells or chorionic villus sampling. RESULTS: Fetal sex assignment was feasible in 337 of 385 cases (87.5%). Of the 312 fetuses with known fetal sex outcome, 164 were males and 148 were females. An accuracy rate of 100% was achieved when a BPD of > or = 23 mm was obtained. CONCLUSION: This study provides important information about the earliest stage of fetal development, expressed in terms of BPD, at which a diagnosis of fetal sex can be made with 100% accuracy.  (+info)

Maternal cigarette smoking during pregnancy and infant ponderal index at birth in the Swedish Medical Birth Register, 1991-1992. (4/203)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the effect of maternal smoking during pregnancy on infant body proportion. METHODS: The ponderal index, defined as birthweight divided by crown-heel length cubed, was examined in 207,607 infants from the Swedish Medical Birth Register for 1991 and 1992. RESULTS: Infant ponderal index was used as the outcome variable in an ordinary least squares continuous regression, which included early pregnancy smoking status, gestational age, and birthweight among the predictors. Ponderal index increased by 0.030 (+/- 0.0014) among infants of moderate smokers and by 0.040 (+/- 0.0017) among infants of heavy smokers, showing a dose response. CONCLUSIONS: Smoking differentially alters the trajectory of weight vs length growth in the fetus.  (+info)

Relationship between fetal femur diaphysis length and neonatal crown-heel length: the effect of race. (5/203)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether racial differences affect the relationship between the fetal femur diaphysis length and the neonatal crown-heel length. DESIGN: A prospective study in a teaching hospital with a multiracial population. SUBJECTS: Four hundred and fifty pregnant women (150 Malays, 150 Chinese and 150 Indians) who delivered live infants. METHODS: Ultrasound scan measurement of the fetal femur diaphysis length was carried out within 48 h of delivery in all cases. The relationship between the neonatal crown-heel length and the femur diaphysis length was obtained by regression using the method of least squares. Dummy or indicator variables were used to determine the effect of race on the relationship. RESULTS: The relationship between the neonatal crown-heel length and the femur diaphysis length in all three races was well described by a linear model but a quadratic model described the relationship better. There was no significant difference in relationship of the neonatal crown-heel length and the femur diaphysis length between the Malay and Chinese populations, but the relationship in the Indian population was significantly different was from both the Chinese and Malay. For a given femur diaphysis length, the crown-heel length of the Indian population was found on average to be 1.1 cm shorter than the crown-heel length of the Malay and Chinese populations. CONCLUSION: Differences in fetal body proportions exist between some races. The longer femur diaphysis length noted in certain races does not necessarily imply that the corresponding crown-heel length is longer. These inter-racial differences may increase the error of fetal weight and length estimates if formulae, which have been derived from samples racially dissimilar to that of the target population are used.  (+info)

Gestational age in pregnancies conceived after in vitro fertilization: a comparison between age assessed from oocyte retrieval, crown-rump length and biparietal diameter. (6/203)

OBJECTIVE: To compare gestational age (GA) and day of delivery estimated from the time of in vitro fertilization (IVF) (oocyte retrieval + 14 days), the ultrasonic measurement of the crown-rump length (CRL) and the biparietal diameter (BPD) in pregnancies conceived in an IVF setting. DESIGN: Included were 208 singletons and 72 twin pregnancies conceived after IVF. GA estimated from the time of IVF was compared with the GA estimated from the ultrasonic measurement of the CRL in the first trimester and the BPD in the second trimester. RESULTS: In singletons the mean difference in gestational age was 0.9 days between IVF and CRL estimates and 2.1 days between IVF and BPD estimates. The gestational age as estimated from CRL or BPD was shorter than the GA estimated from IVF. There was no systematic variation in the mean differences in GA between the methods. In three pregnancies there was a difference of more than 7 days between the gestational age estimated from IVF and CRL and in 22 pregnancies between gestational age estimated from IVF and BPD. A difference of > 14 days for any of the estimates was not found in any case. In singletons there was a high correlation in the gestational age at birth assessed from the time of IVF and from CRL, from the time of IVF and from BPD. CONCLUSION: Assessment of gestational age from the time of IVF, CRL and BPD in pregnancies conceived after IVF shows equally high agreement between the three methods. This supports the use of ultrasound as a reliable method for estimation of gestational age.  (+info)

Alobar holoprosencephaly at 9 weeks gestational age visualized by two- and three-dimensional ultrasound. (7/203)

We present the ultrasound detection of alobar holoprosencephaly (HPE) with cyclopia in an embryo of 9 weeks 2 days last menstrual period (LMP)-based gestational age; the crown-rump length (CRL) was 22 mm. The use of three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound made additional diagnostic ultrasound tomograms possible, and the volume reconstructions improved the imaging and the understanding of the condition.  (+info)

The prenatal cranial base complex and hand in Turner syndrome. (8/203)

From early childhood, Turner syndrome patients have a flattened cranial base, maxillary retrognathism, and short hands. There are, however, no studies that show when these genotype-determined abnormalities occur prenatally. The purpose of the present study was to measure craniofacial profile and hand radiographs of second trimester foetuses with Turner syndrome and compare the results with similar measurements from normal foetuses. The subjects consisted of 12 Turner syndrome foetuses, gestational age (GA) varying between 15 and 24 weeks, and crown-rump length (CRL) between 108 and 220 mm. The mid-sagittal block of each cranium was analysed as part of the requested brain analysis (pituitary gland analysis). This block and the right hand from seven foetuses were radiographed, and the skeletal maturity of the cranial base complex, i.e. the cranial base and the maxilla, was evaluated from the profile radiographs. Shape and size measurements in the cranial base were performed, and compared with normal values according to cranial maturity and to CRL. The cranial base angle in Turner syndrome was greater and the maxillary prognathism was reduced compared with the normal group. The dimensions in the cranial complex and in the hand showed that the bone lengths and distances in relation to CRL were generally smaller compared with normal foetuses. This investigation showed that the abnormal shape of the cranial base complex and the short hands in Turner syndrome are present prenatally.  (+info)

High scores of the quality of nuchal translucency measurement do not guarantee accurate measurement of crown-rump length. Specific measures are needed to evaluate and to improve the quality of the measurement of crown-lump length.
A total of 4607 women were enrolled in the fetal Growth Longitudinal Study, one of the three main components of the INTERGROWTH-21st Project, of whom 4321 had a live singleton birth in the absence of severe maternal conditions or congenital abnormalities detected by ultrasound or at birth. The CRL was measured in 56 women at ,9+0weeks gestation; these were excluded, resulting in 4265 women who contributed data to the final analysis. The mean CRL and SD increased with GA almost linearly, and their relationship to GA is given by the following two equations (in which GA is in days and CRL in mm): mean CRL=−50.6562 + (0.815118 Å~ GA) + (0.00535302Å~ GA2); and SD of CRL=−2.21626+(0.0984894Å~GA). GA estimation is carried out according to the two equations: GA=40.9041+(3.21585Å~CRL0.5)+(0.348956 Å~CRL); and SDof GA=2.39102+(0.0193474Å~CRL).. Conclusions ...

Results: Twenty days after positive smear testing, only n=3 of 5 mated offspring from hypoxic pregnancies were carrying pregnancies. Our preliminary data showed that litter size was higher in pregnant control offspring (median 16, range 15-17) than pregnant offspring prenatally exposed to maternal hypoxia (median 13, range 5-16). Fetal crown-rump lengths from hypoxic pregnancy offspring (mean 3.8 ± 0.2 cm) tended to be smaller than those of control offspring (4.0 ± 0.2 cm; p=0.07). Endothelial-dependent relaxation was greater in uterine arteries from pregnant compared to non-pregnant dams ( ...
I dont know who else to confide in so Im posting here. Today my husband and I went in for my 12w NT ultrasound test. We got devastating news- that our NT measurement was 6.0mm (worried about Down Syndrome and other chromosomal defects above 3.0). They DID see two prominent nose bones and baby had a gray heart rate (155bpm). We know there a lot of steps before we jump to conclusions, including a detailed genetic blood workup (which we did today) but also being referred to a high risk OB. I am already devastated and have been crying all day at the thought of having a baby that isnt viable. Has ANYone had thoughts or experiences with a high NT measurement but normal results?

Dissection and dissociation. Cortical cells from embryonic Sprague Dawley rat pups at E18 and E19 were analyzed because on these days we found peak levels of GABA-induced migration (Behar et al., 1996). Embryonic age was determined by the appearance of a vaginal plug (day 1) and measurement of crown-rump length (Schaffner et al., 1993). Dams were euthanized with CO2, and embryos were removed by cesarean section. Brains from littermates were removed and placed into cold (4°C) Leibovitzs L-15 medium (Life Technologies, Grand Island, NY) supplemented with 0.1 mg/ml bovine serum albumin (BSA; Sigma, St. Louis, MO) and 16 mmglucose. A McIlwaine tissue chopper (Brinkman, Westbury, NY) was used to prepare 350 μm coronal slices of the telencephalon. Slices were transferred to a dish containing the L-15 medium, and the slices were teased apart and cleaned of meninges under a dissecting microscope. Individual slices were transferred to a clean 35 mm dish and covered with a drop of the L-15 medium. The ...

Fetal intra-uterine growth charts are generally based on last menstrual period (LMP) data. Such charts may not really be applicable to infants whose gestational age is ultrasonically determined in early pregnancy. 1369 consecutive singleton pregnancies were studied. All fetuses had their gestational age estimated both by ultrasonic measurement of fetal crown-rump length and from registered last menstrual period data. All infants were weighed at birth as a part of the routine care. The age determination according to the two methods differed in 664 out of 1369 cases and in 516 of these 664 cases the age according to LMP was higher than according to CRL - a highly significant difference (p , 0.001). Mean values for birth weight were found to be larger when correlated to age in terms of CRL determinations than when related to age as calculated from LMP data. Birth weight also showed a significant increase between 40 and 42 weeks when age was determined ultrasonically. This was not the case when age ...

Im absolutely distraught.... 12 week scan showed a nuchal measurement of 3.7. It also showed some fluid around the babys chest and stomach area. As such was hit with the fact that there is a chance that there is a chromosomal/heart defect. A likelihood that I will miscarry soon. They sounded very certain it was bad news... One minute I am optimistic the next grieving. I have been referred to a specialist hospital for further assessment and a CVS. I expect the appointment to be early next week, with results by Friday. If anyone has any advice, on coping, outcomes, experiences - I really would be grateful for your comments X

Answers from experts on how do they measure nuchal translucency. First: Nuchal translucency (nt) is typically measured between weeks 11 and 14. The sonographer measures the thickness of the tissues of the back of the fetal neck. After the image is magnified, calipers are placed along the inner margin of the tissues of the neck.

In cats, accuracy of parturition day prediction by ultrasonographic measurement of foetal structures is decreasing towards the end of gestation. Foetal measurements during the last days of pregnancy are scarce. We determined foetal biparietal, abdominal and eye diameter (BPD, AD and ED, respectively) by ultrasonography as well as maternal blood progesterone (P4) within five days of delivery to predict parturition date and calculate accuracy of prediction. Foetal BPD at birth was compared with newborn kitten head diameter (HD). Kitten HD, crown-rump length (CRL) and body weight were compared by breed and gender. Ultrasonography measurements were carried out on the day of parturition in 14 queens, and on days 62-63 after the first mating and repeated 24-72 hr later in ten other cats. Accuracy of parturition day prediction using BPD and AD was determined based on the equations of Beccaglia et al. (2008) Veterinary Research Communications, 32(Suppl 1), S99 and Garcia Mitacek et al. (2015) ...

There were 37 078 normal pregnancies and 264 with trisomy 21, 81 with trisomy 18, 38 with trisomy 13 and 27 with Turner syndrome. We found that firstly, contrary to the assumption underlying the delta NT method, the distribution of delta NT changes with CRL and secondly, contrary to the assumption underlying the MoM method the distribution of NT was not Gaussian. Fetal NT followed two distributions, one that was dependent on CRL and one that was independent of CRL. The distribution in which NT increases with CRL was observed in about 95% of euploid fetuses, 5% with trisomy 21, 30% with trisomy 18, 15% with trisomy 13 and 10% with Turner syndrome. The median CRL-independent NT was 2.0 mm for the euploid group and 3.4, 5.5, 4.0 and 7.8 mm for trisomies 21, 18, 13 and Turner syndrome, respectively. ...
September 6, 2016 -- In a disturbing new finding, first-trimester ultrasound was linked to greater severity of autism symptoms, including poorer cognitive outcomes and increased repetitive behaviors, in fetuses with a genetic predisposition to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to research published online September 1 in Autism Research.. In a retrospective analysis of data from a national autism genetic repository, a team led by Sara Jane Webb, PhD, of the Seattle Childrens Research Institute found that first-trimester ultrasound was associated with lower mean nonverbal IQ and increased repetitive behaviors in boys with ASD and gene copy number variations (CNVs), compared with those who hadnt undergone a first-trimester ultrasound study.. In addition, having a first-trimester ultrasound correlated with increased repetitive behaviors for all children with ASD in the study, regardless of gender or the presence of identified CNVs.. These data suggest that heterogeneity in ASD symptoms ...

Betamethasone is proven to be better than dexamethasone in reducing the neonatal morbidity and mortality, and cause less incidence of chorioamnionitis(1,2). However, as the betamethasone salt available in India is different from that used in international trials (3), same conclusion cannot be drawn, and either dexamethasone or betamethasone may be used depending upon availability.. There is also concern over increased prevalence of undiagnosed maternal infections in India, hence, more trials are needed on safety of use of corticosteroids. One of the trials showed increase in neonatal mortality and maternal infection with use of ACS in low-income and middle-income countries (4).. Use of ACS in late preterm babies (34 - 37 weeks) and early term (37 - 39 weeks) has been a matter of controversy so far and more data are needed to either support or refute the use of ACS in these populations. There are definite short-term benefits (mainly in reducing transient tachypnea of newborn) with some ...

Methods and systems for providing graphical user interfaces are described. overlaid, Information-bearing windows whose contents remain unchanged for a predetermined period of time become translucent. The translucency can be graduated so that, over time, if the windows contents remain unchanged, the window becomes more translucent. In addition to visual translucency, windows according to the present invention also have a manipulative translucent quality. Upon reaching a certain level of visual translucency, user input in the region of the window is interpreted as an operation on the underlying objects rather than the contents of the overlaying window.

OUR HYPOTHESIS. We designed a clinical intervention, safely producing a post-exertional malaise (PEM), a hallmark symptom of ME / CFS. We hypothesized that a standardized stress-test inducing PEM, will reveal a more specific disease signature associated with ME / CFS symptoms. In that context, we investigated the role of circulating microRNAs, which are small non-coding RNA molecules that can be detected in the blood as well as in other biological fluids.. WHY THIS STUDY MATTERS FOR ME. Studying microRNAs might help to bridge the conceptual gap between genetic predisposition and environmental factors causing ME / CFS or exacerbating specific symptoms. Equally important, the design of a portable clinical intervention allows investigating severely ill persons with ME / CFS, especially the ones that are housebound.. OUR KEY FINDINGS. ...
