INTRODUCTION: Unilateral or bilateral dilation of the ureters occurs commonly during pregnancy. Ultrasonography is a suitable diagnostic method for hydronephrosis; however, it cannot differentiate obstructive from nonobstructive hydronephrosis. Our aim was to evaluate measurable changes in hydronephrosis induced by a mother's positional changes using ultrasonography to differentiate hydronephrosis during pregnancy ...

PURPOSE: To determine if the risk of ectopic pregnancy is greater following frozen vs fresh embryo transfer (ET). METHODS: Retrospective review of pregnancy outcome from January 1, 1997 to November 30, 2003. Cryopreservation was used as a simple freezing method and one-step removal of cryoprotectant. The cycles consisted mostly of ...
Di Spiezio Sardo Attilio - - 2004
BACKGROUND: Chronic ectopic pregnancy is an enigma. The clinical presentation can be mild, with absent or subtle symptoms. The high incidence of negative pregnancy tests and the poor specificity of sonographic patterns can be misleading, and the correct diagnosis is sometimes established only at surgery or even histopathologically after the ...

HIF-1 is closely involved in various biological processes, including angiogenesis, energy metabolism, and cell survival. HIF-1 consists of an oxygen-sensitive HIF-1alpha and oxygen-insensitive HIF-1beta. Oxygen-sensitive HIF-1alpha is subjected to post-translational modifications such as hydroxylation, ubiquitination, and acetylation, which are related to the regulation of its stability. In this present study, ...

Ectopic pregnancy is a major clinical problem, occurring in 75,000 cases per year in the United States. With in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer, microsurgical techniques, and better early diagnosis, the rates of ectopic pregnancies have increased. Transvaginal sonography along with beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin monitoring are the standards for evaluation of ...

Our aim was to determine the accuracy of the intradecidual sign for the diagnosis of intrauterine pregnancy and the exclusion of ectopic pregnancy. The intradecidual sign reliably excludes the presence of an ectopic pregnancy. The sensitivity for diagnosis of an intrauterine pregnancy increases when human chorionic gonadotropin levels are equal ...

An ectopic pregnancy (EP) occurs when implantation of the embryo occurs outside of the uterus. If left untreated, the developing fetus will continue to grow, leading to life-threatening consequences for the mother. A major difficulty with the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is that methods of detection are limited, and some, ...

Over the past twenty five years, numerous heteroatom-containing analogues of classical organic moieties have been prepared and structurally characterized. The incorporation of group 13 to 15 heteroelements has often been reported to induce significant geometric distortions compared to the corresponding carbon compounds. These unusual geometries in main group derivatives are ...

Vaginal bleeding is a leading cause of presentation for emergency care during the first trimester of the pregnancy. Clinical assessment of the pregnancy outcome at this stage is less reliable. US examination is crucial in establishing IUP and early pregnancy failure and to exclude other causes of bleeding, such as ...
