Pathophysiological conditions of the FETUS in the UTERUS. Some fetal diseases may be treated with FETAL THERAPIES.
A pathological process characterized by injury or destruction of tissues caused by a variety of cytologic and chemical reactions. It is usually manifested by typical signs of pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function.
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Programs of disease surveillance, generally within health care facilities, designed to investigate, prevent, and control the spread of infections and their causative microorganisms.
A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
Pathological conditions involving the HEART including its structural and functional abnormalities.

Increased phosphoglycerate kinase in the brains of patients with Down's syndrome but not with Alzheimer's disease. (1/1979)

Impaired glucose metabolism in Down's syndrome (DS) has been well-documented in vivo, although information on the underlying biochemical defect is limited and no biochemical studies on glucose handling enzymes have been carried out in the brain. Through gene hunting in fetal DS brain we found an overexpressed sequence homologous to the phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) gene. This finding was studied further by investigating the activity levels of this key enzyme of carbohydrate metabolism in the brains of patients with DS. PGK activity was determined in five brain regions of nine patients with DS, nine patients with Alzheimer's disease and 14 controls. PGK activity was significantly elevated in the frontal, occipital and temporal lobe and in the cerebellum of patients with DS. PGK activity in corresponding brain regions of patients with Alzheimer's disease was comparable with controls. We conclude that our findings complement previously published data on impaired brain glucose metabolism in DS evaluated by positron emission tomography in clinical studies. Furthermore, we show that in DS, impaired glucose metabolism, represented by increased PGK activity, is a specific finding rather than a secondary phenomenon simply due to neurodegeneration or atrophy. These observations are also supported by data from subtractive hybridization, showing overexpressed PGK in DS brains at the transcriptional level early in life.  (+info)

Can transvaginal fetal biometry be considered a useful tool for early detection of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients? (2/1979)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possibility of an early diagnosis of skeletal dysplasias in high-risk patients. METHODS: A total of 149 consecutive, uncomplicated singleton pregnancies at 9-13 weeks' amenorrhea, with certain menstrual history and regular cycles, were investigated with transvaginal ultrasound to establish the relationship between femur length and menstrual age, biparietal diameter and crown-rump length, using a polynomial regression model. A further eight patients with previous skeletal dysplasias in a total of 13 pregnancies were evaluated with serial examinations every 2 weeks from 10-11 weeks. RESULTS: A significant correlation between femur length and crown-rump length and biparietal diameter was found, whereas none was observed between femur length and menstrual age. Of the five cases with skeletal dysplasias, only two (one with recurrent osteogenesis imperfecta and one with recurrent achondrogenesis) were diagnosed in the first trimester. CONCLUSIONS: An early evaluation of fetal morphology in conjunction with the use of biometric charts of femur length against crown-rump length and femur length against biparietal diameter may be crucial for early diagnosis of severe skeletal dysplasias. By contrast, in less severe cases, biometric evaluation appears to be of no value for diagnosis.  (+info)

Comparison of prenatal ultrasound and postmortem findings in fetuses and infants with congenital heart defects. (3/1979)

OBJECTIVE: Detection of congenital heart defects by prenatal ultrasound examination has been one of the great challenges since the investigation for fetal anomalies became part of the routine fetal examination. This prospective study was designed to evaluate the concordance of prenatal ultrasound findings with autopsy examination in a population consisting of both referred women and non-selected pregnant women. DESIGN: Criteria for inclusion were an ultrasound examination at the National Center for Fetal Medicine and an autopsy performed during the years 1985-94. Results from the ultrasound and autopsy examinations were systematized into categories depending on the degree of concordance. RESULTS: Of 408 infants and fetuses with developmental anomalies, 106 (26%) had congenital heart defects. In 63 (59%) of these 106 cases, the heart defect was the principal reason for the termination of pregnancy or the cause of death. Excluding five cases with a secundum atrial septal defect, there was complete agreement between the ultrasound examination and the autopsy findings in 74 (73%) of 101 cases. In 18 cases, there were minor discrepancies between ultrasound and autopsy findings. The main diagnosis was thus correct in 92 cases (91%). From the first time period (1985-89) to the second (1990-94), the detection rate of all heart defects increased from 48% to 82%. CONCLUSION: This study confirms a good correlation between ultrasound and autopsy diagnoses in fetuses and infants with congenital heart defects. A significant improvement in the detection of heart defects occurred from the first time period to the second and was probably due to increased experience and technical advances.  (+info)

Diagnosis of twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence in the first trimester by transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound. (4/1979)

A case of twin reversed arterial perfusion (TRAP) sequence was diagnosed at 12 weeks' gestation using transvaginal color Doppler ultrasound, which demonstrated the presence of retrograde perfusion in the umbilical artery of the abnormal twin. Ultrasound imaging showed a monochorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancy with an inappropriately grown second twin, the morphological evaluation of which revealed an abnormal cephalic pole with acrania, diffuse subcutaneous edema and the presence of cardiac activity in an abnormal heart with a single chamber.  (+info)

Amylopectinosis in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses. (5/1979)

Three Quarter Horses, a stillborn filly (horse No. 1), a female fetus aborted at approximately 6 months of gestation (horse No. 2), and a 1-month-old colt that had been weak at birth (horse No. 3), had myopathy characterized histologically by large spherical or ovoid inclusions in skeletal and cardiac myofibers. Smaller inclusions were also found in brain and spinal cord and in some cells of all other tissues examined. These inclusions were basophilic, red-purple after staining with periodic acid-Schiff (both before and after digestion with diastase), and moderately dark blue after staining with toluidine blue. The inclusions did not react when stained with Congo red. Staining with iodine ranged from pale blue to black. Their ultrastructural appearance varied from amorphous to somewhat filamentous. On the basis of staining characteristics and diastase resistance, we concluded that these inclusions contained amylopectin. A distinctly different kind of inclusion material was also present in skeletal muscle and tongue of horse Nos. 1 and 3. These inclusions were crystalline with a sharply defined ultrastructural periodicity. The crystals were eosinophilic and very dark blue when stained with toluidine blue but did not stain with iodine. Crystals sometimes occurred freely within the myofibers but more often were encased by deposits of amylopectin. This combination of histologic and ultrastructural features characterizes a previously unreported storage disease in fetal and neonatal Quarter Horses, with findings similar to those of glycogen storage disease type IV. We speculate that a severe inherited loss of glycogen brancher enzyme activity may be responsible for these findings. The relation of amylopectinosis to the death of the foals is unknown.  (+info)

Whence the arthrogrypotics? (6/1979)

During the course of a nation-wide survey of patients with bone and joint deformities, twenty-six individuals with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, in the narrow and precise sense of the term, were investigated. No patient was more than twenty-four years of age. However, on a basis of the figures of population, it can be estimated that 21-0 +/- 6-5 older affected individuals should have been encountered. Furthermore, there was a relative excess of younger children. The series was reasonably unbiased, and as arthrogryposis is non-lethal the deficiency of affected adults is an anomalous finding. It is tentatively suggested that arthrogryposis might result from the intra-uterine influence of an unknown environmental agent which has been present in South Africa for only a limited period of time. Detection of this factor could be an important step in the prevention of the disease.  (+info)

Neurological morbidity after fetal supraventricular tachyarrhythmia. (7/1979)

BACKGROUND: Fetal tachyarrhythmia is a well-documented entity which, in the absence of pharmacological intervention, may lead to congestive heart failure, fetal hydrops and eventually fetal demise. The success rate of the implemented treatment is generally measured by survival and achievement of control of the arrhythmia. We report on the occurrence of associated cerebral damage in three patients with fetal tachycardia. METHODS: We describe three patients with a history of fetal supraventricular tachyarrhythmia who developed cerebral complications in utero. RESULTS: Two patients had cerebral hypoxic-ischemic lesions and one had hemorrhagic lesions present at birth. They had developed severe congestive heart failure and fetal hydrops secondary to fetal tachyarrhythmia, and there were no other obvious causes for the cerebral pathology. Two of these patients were referred to us antenatally. Therapy was instituted and resulted in control of the tachycardia and resolution of hydrops. The third patient was referred to our clinic shortly after birth because of severe circulatory problems secondary to fetal tachyarrhythmia. CONCLUSION: From these observations, we believe that a fetus with tachyarrhythmia and subsequent hydrops is at increased risk for the development of cerebral complications, due to the circulatory disturbances and sudden changes in heart rate which may lead to fluctuations in cerebral perfusion. This would imply that it is of the utmost importance to aim at immediate and complete control of the heart rate in the treatment of fetal tachyarrhythmia.  (+info)

Trisomy 10: first-trimester features on ultrasound, fetoscopy and postmortem of a case associated with increased nuchal translucency. (8/1979)

We report a case of the prenatal diagnosis of trisomy 10 in a fetus presenting with an increased nuchal translucency thickness (5 mm) on a routine first-trimester anomaly scan at 12 weeks' gestation. Multiple abnormalities were diagnosed by ultrasound and fetoscopy. Karyotyping on chorionic villus sampling led to the diagnosis of homogeneous trisomy 10 which was confirmed by in situ hybridization on fetal tissue samples. Postmortem examination confirmed major anatomical malformations, including facial cleft, arthrogryposis of the upper and lower limbs and bilateral diaphragmatic hernia, and also revealed hypoplastic lungs, right renal agenesis and a complex cardiac malformation. Trisomy 10 is an uncommon chromosomal abnormality that is likely to be associated with increased fetal nuchal translucency. This case also emphasizes the value of a detailed anomaly scan in high-risk patients in the first trimester of pregnancy.  (+info)

The pandemic of COVID-19 is seriously challenging the medical organization in many parts of the world. This novel corona virus SARS-CoV-2 has a specific tropism for the low respiratory airways, but causes severe pneumonia in a low percentage of patients. However, the rapid spread of the infection during this pandemic is causing the need to hospitalize a high number of patients. Pneumonia in COVID-19 has peculiar features and can be studied by lung ultrasound in the early approach to suspected patients. The sonographic signs are non-specific when considered alone, but observation of some aspects of vertical artifacts can enhance the diagnostic power of the ultrasound examination. Also, the combination of sonographic signs in patterns and their correlation with blood exams in different phenotypes of the disease may allow for a reliable characterization and be of help in triaging and admitting patients.

I turned up for my second, supposed to be last, ultrasound in my first pregnancy with some apprehension. Here in the UK, its often called the big scan, done at 20 weeks to look for anomalies in the baby. You dont normally see your baby again until theyre born unless theres a problem. There was a problem. The sonographer couldnt find a stomach. My husband realized this was a problem. I didnt. I had been given a leaflet before the scan that said if the baby hadnt swallowed any amniotic fluid recently then the stomach might not be visible and they will call you back for a repeat scan. So I assumed that was all it was. We werent able to find out the gender in our hospital but wed seen quite clearly the baby had male anatomy and we had a quick chat about the fact we were having a boy. Then my husband went quiet. I thought he was disappointed and assumed he had wanted a girl. Actually, he had picked up the fact the scan had been abandoned by the technician (I thought theyd just decided ...

Fetal Tachycardia (FT) is described as increase in baseline fetal heart rate (FHR) above 160bpm. Mild fetal tachycardia is described as 161-180bpm and severe tachycardia is defined as greater than 180bpm for at least three minutes. The fetal tachycardia causes include maternal fever, dehydration or anxiety, maternal ketosis, medications like anticholinergic medications, sympathomimetic medications like terbutaline, fetal movement, preterm fetus, maternal thyrotoxicosis and maternal anaemia1. Fetal tachycardia is considered significant (any range ,160-180bpm) in the presence of maternal pyrexia as Chorioamnionitis is suspected. Fetal arrhythmia or congenital defect is associated with FHR more than 200 bpm. Baseline FHR tachycardia represents an increase in sympathetic and or a decrease in parasympathetic autonomic nervous system tone1..

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated high mortality and morbidity, mainly in those cases with severe forms where there are extremely reduced lung volumes, liver herniation and decreased abnormal pulmonary vascularization. Fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion performed between 26 and 30 weeks (standard FETO) has been shown to increase fetal pulmonary size and vascularity, and to improve infant survival in isolated severe CDH. Fetal pulmonary response followed FETO can be used to predict outcome and is dependent on the size of the fetal lung prior to the procedure.. We hypothesize that performing an earlier FETO, between 22-24 weeks, fetuses with severe form of CDH will have a better fetal pulmonary response and higher chance of surviving. ...

Fetal double aortic arch (DAA) malformation is a rare congenital heart disease with few reported cases in the literature. We aimed to investigate the characteristics of prenatal ultrasound and postnatal computed tomography angiography (CTA) of DAA and to describe the associated anomalies and clinical outcomes to improve prenatal diagnosis and assist in perinatal management. The obstetric ultrasound imaging databases of seven tertiary referral centers were reviewed retrospectively to identify fetuses with a prenatal diagnosis of DAA between January 2013 and December 2018. Ultrasonographic findings, associated anomalies, genetic abnormalities, postnatal CTA images, and long-term postnatal outcomes were evaluated. A total of 36 cases out of 40 prenatally diagnosed DAA fetuses were confirmed by postnatal diagnosis (fetal autopsy, CTA, and surgery). In this cohort of 36 confirmed cases, 24 (67%) were isolated anomalies, while 12 (33%) were associated with intracardiac or extracardiac anomalies, and 2 (6%)
Choroid plexus cyst. Ultrasound scan of a foetus brain with a choroid plexus cyst (CPC). The choroid plexus is a layer of cells and blood vessels at the centre of the foetal brain. It produces a fluid, called cerebrospinal fluid, that flows around the brain and provides a protective cushion for it against impacts. CPCs in foetuses are temporary bubbles of trapped fluid that are usually gone by the 32nd week of pregnancy. They are classed as markers for underlying chromosome abnormalities in the foetus. Ultrasound scanning is a diagnostic technique that sends high-frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure. - Stock Image M130/1007

0062]Optionally, the system 100 includes a form generator 107 which generates a form for each fetal scan plane in the group. Each form allows the operator to submit his diagnosis pertaining to the fetal scan plane. Optionally the form is a graphical user interface which is presented to the operator in a client terminal, such a personal computer, a PDA, a Smartphone, a thin client, a laptop and the like. FIG. 3 is an exemplary form which is presented to allow the operator, to input data pertaining to the presence and/or absence of one or more fetal abnormalities, such as structural malformations, in relation to an ultrasonographic image depicting a selected scan plane. The operator may mark the fetal abnormalities and the level of certainty thereof. The form generator 107 allows monitoring the inputs provided by the operator. Optionally, a set of fetal scan planes are defined per examination. Each fetal scan plane is associated with a checklist of one or more diagnosis events. The form generator ...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is not as well known as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis, but like them it is a life-threatening birth defect, and is just as common. Occurring in one in 3,000 births, CDH causes the guts and liver to protrude through a defective diaphragm and into the chest cavity, where they interfere with the lungs.

Prenatal diagnostic test is a non-invasive test for detecting the most common chromosomal abnormalities in women. Detect for example Downs Syndrome
One of the most widely discussed topics in the postnatal management of ANH is the initiation of continuous antibiotic prophylaxis (CAP). One study found that infants with ANH were nearly 12 times more likely to have pyelonephritis-related hospitalizations in the first year of life.16 The risks versus benefits of long-term antibiotics may not always be clear, but there are several factors that pharmacists should consider when evaluating the need for CAP.. The necessity of CAP depends on the presentation of several risk factors. Guidelines by the American Urological Association do not recommend CAP in patients with SFU grades I and II.17 One study found that patients with SFU grade I or II had resolution rates of 96.7% and 98.6%, respectively, and only 0.7% of patients experienced febrile UTI.3 Other studies have also demonstrated a low likelihood of UTI in mild ANH even in the presence of VUR or UPJO.18,19 Another study revealed that patients with low-grade hydronephrosis receiving CAP had ...
Introduction: Among congenital dysplasias the anomalies of kidney and urogenital tract are among the most frequent encountered. Their rate in prenatally made diagnoses is about 50 %. Modern prenatal diagnostic facilities have changed the therapeutic access to these anomalies in the last decade. After a phase of overtreatment in the beginning, nowadays new insights in the natural course of these dysplasias and the results of long-term follow-up studies resulted in a more differentiated apporach. Questions and methods: In this retro- and prospective study we looked for the the influence of prenatal diagnostics on the postnatal course and management. The question was to examine the relationship between the prenatal ultrasound results, the suggested prenatal diagnosis and then the defintive postnatal disease. Of interest was the prognostic impact of typical prenatal sonographic imaging on the postnatal course of the baby. Because of its frequency we focused on anomalies of the kidney and urogenital ...

This week I am 27 weeks! I had to go in this week for a ultrasound because Wells had a cyst in her brain, which is gone now!! It is called a Choroid Plexus Cyst. We found out she had it during our first ultrasound at 19 weeks. I have been stressed, to say the least, for 8 weeks!! The ultrasound tech said not to worry that 1 out of 3 babies have them and they usually go away on there on. Well of course I could not stop worrying about it! I started looking/researching online and found what it could be if it didnt go away and so on. I know that is the worst thing to do but I couldnt help myself. I have been in a major funk and just so down and out. We didnt really talk about it alot because we wanted to wait and see what happened when we went back. We are so blessed that it is gone and she is perfectly healthy!! She weighs 2 lbs and 5 ozs! I feel like a different person and I just pray that everything goes good and we have a normal delivery. I am such a worry wort and will be worrying until she ...
I had my 21 week appointment today. Everything is still going great. I did have a little scare while I was at Disney World. My doctor called me personally (never a good sign) to tell me they found something on my ultrasound. They found a Choroid plexus cyst on the babys brain. Apparently it can be a marker for some chromosone issues. My doctor told me that everything else looked PERFECT on the ultrasound and she doubts anything is actually wrong, but they want to be sure. So the day after I got back I went to see a specialtist and had a level 2 ultrasound. The cyst must have shrunk (which I was told it might or even disappear) because it wasnt something the specialist gave any real concern. I was told again that they are definitly sure it is a girl. After I was told everything is fine (I was given a less than .5-1% chance that it could lead to something) I was able to enjoy the new ultrasound. The baby was yawning which I had never seen that before. She was also grabbing her toes with her ...
I know I havent really talked about it much. Probably because Im always hearing new things about this pregnancy. Its hard to keep up! Tomorrow I will be 30 weeks pregnant! I am thrilled that things are coming to an end and that our little guy will be here soon. He has definitely been harder to get here than Noah was. Warning: This could get lengthy and is really so that I can remember all the things that were abnormal with this pregnancy. Feel free to keep reading though! :) I know I shouldnt compare children or pregnancies but I feel like with Noah I went to my regular checkups and they told me everything was fine and they were never concerned. The only thing abnormal was that I was slightly anemic and had to take iron pills and I remember I had ligament pains pretty bad. Thats it. With this one, wow... I didnt have much trouble until 18 weeks. They did an ultrasound to determine the sex of the baby and they found choroid plexus cysts on his brain. I had to go to a specialist to get a ...

"Maternal or fetal infection at or immediately following the time of delivery is an absolute contraindication to encapsulation," the APPA said in a release. "It is unsafe to encapsulate in these cases."
A drug - being studied as a preventative measure against fetal infection - would contain glycosaminoglycans, which the virus would find so irresistible that it would turn up its nose at the sugars in human cell membranes.

  • Severe dehydration at admission increased risk of fetal death. (
  • Only about 10 percent of the fetuses exposed will actually turn out to be females with CAH, meaning about 90 percent of those exposed will bear all the risk of fetal biochemical engineering with no chance to benefit. (
  • Because there are so many unanswered questions about the risk of fetal malformation in pregnant women who develop a Zika virus infection, I think they're the people who should be concerned and be prudent and probably shouldn't travel in areas where Zika virus may be present at this point,' Madoff said. (
  • 11 In short, "there is an increasing risk of fetal loss with increasing maternal age in women aged more than 30 years. (
  • IMSEAR at SEARO: Sickle cell disease and foetal haemoglobin. (
  • The finding has implications for treating sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia, according to the scientists who published their study " Activation of γ-globin expression by hypoxia-inducible factor 1α " in Nature . (
  • This process has motivated the development of innovative approaches to treat sickle cell disease and β-thalassaemia by increasing HbF levels in postnatal RBCs," write the investigators. (
  • Mutations in beta-globin cause sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia. (
  • We have known for many years that persistent HbF expression after birth can alleviate the symptoms of sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia," said corresponding author Mitchell J. Weiss, MD, PhD, hematology department chair at St. Jude's. (
  • First author Ruopeng Feng, PhD, a scientist in the Weiss lab, showed that a drug that activates part of the cellular hypoxia response inhibits sickling of red blood cells derived from adults with sickle cell disease. (
  • The finding has implications for treating sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia, serious blood disorders that affect millions of individuals. (
  • Our findings indicate that proline hydroxylase inhibitors might be useful for treatment of sickle cell disease or beta-thalassemia, where turning on HbF production has therapeutic benefits," Weiss said. (
  • Approximately 20% of adult sickle cell disease patients develop kidney failure with related anemia. (
  • Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited blood disorders that have in common a mutation in the sixth codon of the β-globin (HBB) gene on chromosome 11. (
  • Sickle cell disease is a group of red blood cell disorders passed by genes from parents to their children. (
  • Most children with sickle cell disease are pain-free between pain crises, but adolescents and adults may suffer from ongoing pain. (
  • Approximately 100,000 Americans have sickle cell disease. (
  • About one in every 365 black children is born with sickle cell disease. (
  • Learn how you can participate in NHLBI clinical trials related to sickle cell disease on NHLBI's website. (
  • Sickle cell disease is a lifelong illness. (
  • It is a growing option for people with sickle cell disease. (
  • The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is leading a nationwide study to test the effects of an experimental gene therapy to treat sickle cell disease that involves removing a patient's bone marrow and then adding copies of a correctly spelled gene for normal hemoglobin to generate normal red blood cells. (
  • NHLBI researchers are studying the genetic factors behind sickle cell disease. (
  • This includes fetal hemoglobin, which protects an infant from sickle cell disease for the first six months after birth. (
  • Sickle cell disease is a group of conditions in which red blood cells are not shaped as they should be. (
  • What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease? (
  • Kids who have sickle cell disease may feel pain in different parts of the body when blood vessels get clogged with sickle cells. (
  • Because kids with sickle cell disease don't have enough normal red blood cells, they may get tired a lot. (
  • Sickle cell disease is an inherited (say: in-HAIR-uh-ted) disease. (
  • How Is Sickle Cell Disease Treated? (
  • Kids with sickle cell disease should get all recommended vaccinations . (
  • Taking medicine does not cure sickle cell disease, but it can help keep kids who have it from getting sick. (
  • Kids with sickle cell disease may need to go to the hospital if they have a lot of pain or a serious infection. (
  • Sometimes kids with sickle cell disease need blood transfusions (say: trans-FEW-zyuns). (
  • In some cases, a bone marrow transplant can cure sickle cell disease. (
  • They are risky and not right for everyone, so scientists are working on finding other ways to cure sickle cell disease. (
  • Having sickle cell disease can be frustrating and sometimes painful. (
  • Scientists at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and other colleagues say they have shown how a protein responsible for adapting to low oxygen conditions (hypoxia), causes increased expression of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) in adults. (
  • Fetal death may occur due to fetal hypoxia and acidosis resulting from excessive maternal dehydration. (
  • The hemolysis of red blood cells due to isoimmunisation results in fetal anaemia and hypoxia leading to fetal heart failure. (
  • A heart rate of less than 120 indicates fetal hypoxia, a dangerous pathological process characterized by a decreased supply of oxygen to the fetus. (
  • Treatment of hypoxia should be carried out as early as possible so that the disease does not cause irreparable consequences. (
  • In this case, treatment is primarily aimed at normalizing the flow of blood to the uterus and placenta, but in case of acute fetal hypoxia, it is recommended to induce labor by artificial means, rather than using any treatment methods. (
  • Acute and chronic fetal hypoxia can lead to fetal death in the womb or death of the baby during the first week of life. (
  • How to determine fetal hypoxia? (
  • Determining fetal hypoxia starting from the fifth month of pregnancy will not be difficult. (
  • If no measures to normalize the oxygen supply to the fetus have given the desired effect or the symptoms of fetal hypoxia persist for more than twenty-eight weeks of pregnancy, it is best to have a cesarean section immediately. (
  • During the 2019 rainy season, a 33-year-old woman living in the Bas Maroni region of French Guiana was referred to the prenatal diagnosis unit at West French Guiana Hospital Center (Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni, French Guiana) for fetal anomalies. (
  • It is now possible to determine the molecular etiology of many of these cases although this is usually only done in research laboratories and clearly, if the molecular etiology were known one could even do fetal diagnosis. (
  • Regarding the depression diagnosis, the evaluation of Prime-MD showed that 90% of the women didn't present enough symptoms to characterize the disease. (
  • Our mission is to inform the healthcare community about the diagnosis and management of rare diseases. (
  • Learn more about disabilities within the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum and their diagnosis and assessment services. (
  • Conclusions: Our findings suggest that operative vaginal delivery, performed mostly because of non-reassuring fetal heart rate, is more common in pregnancies complicated by a prenatal diagnosis of CHD than non-anomalous pregnancies. (
  • On May 13, 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued interim guidance ( ) that recommends Zika virus rRT-PCR testing of urine collected less than 14 days after symptom onset, along with testing of patient-matched serum samples, for the diagnosis of suspected Zika virus infection (1).

Scott Adzick, M.D. , surgeon-in-chief at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia , director of CHOP's Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment, and co-author of the study. (
  • UPMC Children's and UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital offer fetal surgery for spina bifida through the Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center. (
  • It is much more difficult to do this in the first 3 months, but the sooner the diagnosis is made, the higher the likelihood of avoiding the consequences of the disease. (
  • The impact of early diagnosis of fetal cardiac abnormalities on the postnatal outcome has been controversial in literature. (
  • Fetal alcohol syndrome is a clinical diagnosis usually made by a geneticist based on the history of exposure and the presence of specific problems as noted above. (
  • Clinical studies have shown that heavy use of alcohol by pregnant women may result in a pattern of severe and irreversible abnormalities in their offspring called the fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). (
  • People with the cardiovascular form of Gaucher disease may also have eye abnormalities, bone disease, and mild enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly). (

  • In the context of fetal programming, the amygdala has received special attention because the amygdala develops at an early embryonic stage and its development appears to be particularly sensitive to elevated levels of cortisol, which is the end-product of a dysregulated HPA axis. (
  • A total of 23,595 fetal deaths at 20 weeks of gestation or more were reported in the United States in 2013. (
  • A total of 64 fetal deaths occurred before admission. (
  • Although the proportion of postadmission fetal deaths within a TG decreased with each protocol change, the proportion in TG3 was not different from TG1 or TG2. (
  • The proportion of fetal deaths was higher than that previously recorded in Haiti but close to that of the 2006 Senegal cholera outbreak. (
  • We need a better understanding of how bacteria invade the uterus to cause preterm birth so that we can develop therapies to prevent fetal infections. (
  • Some fetal diseases may be treated with FETAL THERAPIES . (
  • Kale said research in Canada has found the strongest evidence of fetal sex selection among some Canadians of Asian descent, including people from India, China, Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines. (
  • She called the evidence "tantalizing" that fetal cells may offer the mother increased resistance to certain diseases. (
  • To ensure that their cats live long, healthy lives, cat owners need to be acutely aware of common cat diseases , cat disease symptoms, and even fetal feline diseases. (
