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..

AU - Ratnam, S.. PY - 1996/9. Y1 - 1996/9. N2 - During a period of 8 years (1985-92), 100 fetuses were diagnosed to have non-immune hydrops on the basis of ultrasonographic findings and absence of rhesus isoimmunization. Both the mother and the fetus were thoroughly evaluated by a set protocol that included a detailed fetal abnormality scan with echocardiography and fetal blood sampling. A cause for non-immune hydrops could be identified in 81% of the fetuses. Cardiovascular abnormalities (23%) and α1-thalassemia (22%) were almost equally common etiological factors in the South-East Asian population under investigation. A chromosomal abnormality was detected in 10% of the fetuses with non-immune hydrops. Twenty-six fetuses were found to be suitable for in utero therapy. In utero therapy included one or ...

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. ...

Some psychoanalytic researches are reviewed here to give an overview of how ideas on prenatal life and psychoanalytic ideas on ego-formation got tentatively together during the last century and the first years of the new century. There is a large bow to Ferenczi who published his long paper Thalassa in 1924 after about ten years of thoughts on it that were shared by Maiello, Hidas and Raffai, and Wilheim. Certainly this bow is incomplete. However, we can see how prenatal life becomes more relevant in psychoanalytic research, too. ...

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

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 ...

Proposing that prenatal ultrasound is a potential teratogen sounds like pseudoscience to most people, I realize this. Hell, when my partner came to me with the idea even I thought hed gone round the bend. But he really wanted us to review the literature and see if this crazy notion could have any foundation at…
"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.
