Importance null Being born small for gestational age (SGA), approximately 10% of all births, is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular mortality in adulthood, but mechanistic pathways are unclear. Cardiac remodeling and dysfunction occur in fetuses SGA and children born SGA, but it is uncertain whether and how these changes persist into adulthood. null Objective null To evaluate baseline cardiac function and structure and exercise capacity in young adults born SGA. null Design, setting...

Abstract null null Background null : Optimal prenatal care relies on accurate gestational age dating (GA). After the first trimester, current GA estimation methods’ accuracy diminishes with increasing GA. Considering that in many countries, access to first trimester CRL is still difficult due to late-booking, infrequent access to prenatal care and unavailability of early ultrasound examination, the development of accurate methods for GA estimation in second and third trimester of pregnancy remai...

Objective null Adverse event (AE) monitoring is central to assessing therapeutic safety. The lack of a comprehensive framework to define and grade maternal and fetal AEs in pregnancy trials severely limits understanding risks in pregnant women. We created AE terminology to improve safety monitoring for developing pregnancy drugs, devices and interventions. null Method null Existing severity grading for pregnant AEs and definitions/indicators of 'severe' and 'life-threatening' conditions relevant...

Perinatal asphyxia is a major cause of severe brain damage and death. For its prenatal identification, Doppler ultrasound has been used as a surrogate marker of fetal hypoxia. However, Doppler evaluation cannot be performed continuously. We have evaluated the performance of a miniaturized multiparametric sensor aiming to evaluate tissular oxygen and pH changes continuously in an umbilical cord occlusion (UCO) sheep model. The electrochemical sensors were inserted in fetal hindlimb skeletal muscl...
Introduction null The majority of women admitted with threatened preterm labour (PTL) do not delivery prematurely. While those with microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity (MIAC) represent the highest risk group, this is a condition that is not routinely ruled out since it requires amniocentesis. Identification of low-risk or high-risk cases might allow individualisation of care, that is, reducing overtreatment with corticosteroids and shorten hospital stay in low-risk women, while allowing ea...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate left myocardial performance index (MPI) and its time intervals in monochorionic diamniotic (MCDA) twin pairs complicated by selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR) with abnormal (persistent -type II- or intermittent -type III- absent or reversed end-diastolic flow) umbilical artery Doppler. METHODS Retrospective study including 16 MCDA twin pairs with sFGR type II, 26 MCDA twin pairs with sFGR type III and 42 gestational age-matched uncomplicated MCDA twin pairs in a sing...

BACKGROUND We aimed to assess the postnatal pattern of cardiovascular remodeling associated with intrauterine exposure to maternal HIV and antiretroviral treatment (ART). METHODS Prospective cohort including 34 HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) infants and 53 non-HIV-exposed infants evaluated from fetal life up to 6 months postnatally. A cardiovascular evaluation was performed including echocardiography, blood pressure and carotid intima media thickness (cIMT) measurement. RESULTS ART regimens during...

Abstract null null Objective null To validate and implement an optimized screening method for the detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) RNA combining use of self-collected raw saliva samples, single-step heat-treated virus inactivation and RNA extraction, and direct RT-qPCR. null null null Methods null This was a three-phase study conducted in Barcelona (Spain) during June to October, 2020. The three phases were (1) analytical validation against standard RT-qP...
