Context: It has recently emerged that carrying a male fetus is associated with poorer maternal β-cell function in pregnancy and an increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). β-cell dysfunction is the central pathophysiologic defect underlying both GDM and subsequent postpartum progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Objective: This was a retrospective cohort study that aimed to determine whether fetal sex influences the natural history of maternal risk of diabetes after deliv...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the effect of fetal sex on intrauterine growth patterns during the second and third trimesters. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of women with uncomplicated singleton pregnancies who underwent sonographic fetal weight estimation during the second and third trimesters in a single tertiary center. The effect of fetal sex on intrauterine growth patterns was analyzed for each of the routine fetal biometric indices (biparietal diameter, head circumference, occipito...

Objective. To assess the effect of fetal gender on pregnancy outcome. Methods. Retrospective study of all singleton pregnancies at a tertiary hospital during 1995–2006. Results. Of the 66,387 women studied, 34,367 (51.8%) delivered male and 32,020 (48.2%) delivered female neonates. The rate of preterm delivery (as early as 29 weeks) was higher for male fetuses and was attributed to an increased incidence of spontaneous preterm labor and preterm premature rupture of membranes. Women carrying male...

Objective: To compare selected umbilical cord parameters, especially cord coiling, between breech and vertex presentations. Methods: We prospectively collected umbilical cords from uncomplicated breech and vertex obtained during elective term cesarean deliveries. We compared various cord parameters between the two groups as well as data regarding obstetric history and pregnancy outcome. Results: We evaluated 55 umbilical cords from breech and 55 from vertex deliveries. Umbilical cord length (56....

Abstract Background: In maternal fetal medicine, gender differences in outcome are often observed. Objective: This article reviews the fetal sex-dependent differences found in many aspects of pregnancy, from conception through birth. Methods: The MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Current Contents databases were searched, for the years 1985 to 2006, using the following Medical Subject Headings and text words: fetal gender, finale, female, sex ratio at birth, pregnancy outcome, preterm birth, and stillbirth . ...

Abstract Objective Evaluation of the relationship between umbilical coiling index (UCI) and adverse perinatal outcome. Method A prospective study was performed on 699 pregnant women who were 37–40 weeks. UCI was determined by dividing the total number of the complete vascular coiling by the total umbilical cord length in centimeters. Then the relationship between UCI and neonatal weight, amniotic fluid index, meconium, Apgar score, and fetal distress were evaluated. Results There was a significa...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the relation between undercoiling and overcoiling of the umbilical cord and adverse pregnancy outcome. METHODS: Umbilical cords and hospital records of 885 patients were studied in a cross-sectional study design. The umbilical coiling index was determined as the number of complete coils divided by the length of the cord in centimeters, blinded for pregnancy outcome. Obstetric history and pregnancy outcome of each patient were obtained from hospital records, blinded for the...

Our aim was to review the literature on umbilical cord coiling. Relevant articles in English published between 1966 and 2003 were retrieved by a Medline search and cross-referencing. The normal umbilical cord coiling index (UCI) is 0.17 (?± 0.009) spirals completed per cm. Abnormal cord coiling, i.e. UCI ?90th centile (?>?0.30) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. Hypocoiling of the cord is associated with increased incidence of fetal demise, intrapartum fetal heart rate decelerations, ...

Biological differences between sexes should be considered in all stages of research, as sexual dimorphism starts in utero leading to sex-specific fetal programming. In numerous biomedical fields, there is still a lack of stratification by sex despite primary cultured cells retaining memory of the sex and of the donor. The sex of donors in biological research must be known because variations in cells and cellular components can be used as endpoints, biomarkers and/or targets of pharmacological st...
