OBJECTIVES Determine which sociodemographic factors are most associated with increased maternal perceived stress during pregnancy. Evaluate the association between maternal stress and plasma immune-mediator concentrations (IMCs). METHODS As part of a prospective, randomized clinical trial, 247 participants completed a Perceived Stress Scale survey (PSS-10) during each trimester of pregnancy. Blood samples were collected from participants and were analyzed for 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concen...

Plato's powerful metaphor of the Cave, from Republic, further advances a critical assessment of the hidden limits of distance learning. In the Cave, individuals are restrained to see only straight ahead to the images projected from behind them onto the wall in front of them. As in the Cave, in tele-education the dynamism of learning is replaced by passive learning. Not only do learners become largely passive with respect to their teacher, but also to each other. These effects are masked from tea...

OBJECTIVES Maternal and fetal complications can occur in pregnant kidney transplant recipients. Since these are high-risk pregnancies, they require a multidisciplinary follow-up to prematurely detect adverse events. Identifying factors that would affect fetal, maternal and graft outcomes is essential to further stratify the risk of pregnant kidney transplant recipients. METHODS All pregnancies in kidney transplant recipients followed in a single center for 30 years were included. Data included p...

OBJECTIVES S100B belongs to the family of danger signaling proteins. It is mainly expressed by glial-specific cells in the brain. However, S100B was also detected in other cell likewise immune cells. This molecule was suggested as biomarker for inflammation and fetal brain damage in spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB), preeclampsia (PE) and HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelet count). METHODS The aim of our study was to determine the concentration of S100B in maternal and cord...

Objectives null Oxytocin (OXT) is widely used to facilitate labor. However, little is known about the effects of perinatal OXT exposure on the developing brain. We investigated the effects of maternal OXT administration on gene expression in perinatal mouse brains. null Methods null Pregnant C57BL/6 mice were treated with saline or OXT at term (n=6-7/group). Dams and pups were euthanized on gestational day (GD) 18.5 after delivery by C-section. Another set of dams was treated with saline or OXT ...

The continuous increase in the rates of cesarean section worldwide is concerning. Breech presentation is one of the major indications for cesarean section in most countries. External cephalic version (ECV) can reduce cesarean rates by approximately two-thirds in term breech pregnancies. After introduction of ultrasonography and cardiotocography before and after the procedure, ECV has become much safer. As a result, over-night fasting, intravenous access, and preoperative laboratory tests are no ...
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the second trimester thymus-thorax-ratio (TTR) between fetuses born preterm (study group) and those born after 37 weeks of gestation were completed (control group). METHODS This study was conducted as a retrospective evaluation of the ultrasound images of 492 fetuses in the three vessel view. The TTR was defined as the quotient of a.p. thymus diameter and a.p. thoracic diameter. RESULTS Fetuses that were preterm showed larger TTR (p<0.001) the seco...
Objectives null To assess the influence of frame rate settings on longitudinal strain (LS) and mechanical synchrony (SYN) values in Speckle Tracking Echocardiography (STE) of healthy fetuses. null Methods null In this prospective study, we collected transversal or apical four-chamber-views of 121 healthy fetuses between 20 and 38 weeks of gestation using three different frame rate (FR) settings (≥ 110, 100 ± 10, 60 ± 10 frames per second). We assessed the segmental and the global LS of both vent...
