Abstractthe_measurement_of_endometrial_volume_and_sub_endometrial_vascularity_to_replace_the_traditional_endometrial_thickness_as_predictors_of_in_vitro.pdf

To assess the value of endometrial thickness, volume, and sub-endometrial perfusion in women undergoing IVF. In 82 women candidate for ICSI, endometrial thickness and sub-endometrial perfusion were measured with a trans-vaginal 2 D ultrasound and 3 D power Doppler respectively on day of hCG trigger and Embryo transfer (ET). The primary outcome was the clinical pregnancy rate. Endometrial volume showing a statistically significant difference between pregnant and nonpregnant women (4.11 ± 1.19 vs. 3.4 ± 1.1  = .019) on day of triggering and at ET (4.02 ± 1.15 vs. 3.45 ± 0.90,  = .022). VFI was significantly higher in pregnant group at both days of triggering and ET (0.54 ± 0.48 vs. 0.33 ± 0.31 and 0.47 ± 0.22 vs. 0.34 ± 0.2,  = .02). At cutoff values of 3.265 and 2.95 cm3 (70 & 80% sensitivity, specificity 64.5 & 51.6%, a positive predictive value 38.9 & 34.8%, and negative predictive value 87.0 & 88.9%) to predict pregnancy on the day of hCG trigger & ET respectively. Cutoff value for Endometrial VFI on the day of ET was 0.674 (sensitivity of 70%, specificity of 80.6%, PPV 53.8%, and NPV 89.3%). Higher endometrial volume and VFI were associated with pregnancy.

Abstractrandomized_controlled_trial_of_the_effect_of_endometrial_injury.pdf

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether endometrial injury in the cycle preceding controlled ovarian hyperstimulation during intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) improves the implantation and pregnancy rates.

METHODS: Between January 1, 2016, and March 31, 2017, a randomized controlled trial was conducted at a center in Egypt among 300 women who met inclusion criteria (first ICSI cycle, aged <40 years, day-3 follicle-stimulating hormone <10 IU/L, normal serum prolactin, no uterine cavity abnormality). The women were randomly allocated using a web-based system to undergo endometrial scratch in the cycle preceding controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (n=150) or to a control group (n=150). Only data analysts were masked to group assignment. The primary outcomes were the implantation and clinical pregnancy rates at 14 days and 4 weeks after embryo transfer, respectively. Analyses were by intention to treat.

RESULTS: The implantation rate was significantly higher in the endometrial scratch group (41.3% [90/218]) than in the control group (30.0% [63/210]; P<0.001). The clinical pregnancy rate was also significantly higher in the endometrial scratch group (44.2% [61/138]) than in the control group (30.4% [41/135]; P<0.001).

CONCLUSION: Endometrial injury in the cycle preceding the stimulation cycle improved implantation and pregnancy rates during ICSI. CLINICALTRIALS.GOV: NCT02660125.

Abstractdiagnostic_accuracy_of_serum_mir-122.pdf

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the value of serum microRNA-122 (miR-122) and miR-199a as reliable noninvasive biomarkers in the diagnosis of endometriosis.

METHODS: During 2015-2016, at a teaching hospital in Egypt, a prospective cohort study was conducted on 45 women with pelvic endometriosis and 35 women who underwent laparoscopy for pelvic pain but were not diagnosed with endometriosis. Blood and peritoneal fluid (PF) samples were collected; interleukin-6 (IL-6) was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and miR-122 and miR-199a expression was measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction.

RESULTS: The serum and PF levels of IL-6, miR-122, and miR-199a were significantly higher in women with endometriosis than in controls (P<0.001 for all comparisons). Serum miR-122 expression was positively correlated with serum IL-6 (r=0.597), PF IL-6 (r=0.603), PF miR-122 (r=0.934), serum miR-199a (r=0.727), and PF miR-199a (r=0.653). Serum miR-199a expression was positively correlated with serum IL-6 (r=0.677), PF IL-6 (r=0.678), PF miR-122 (r=0.744), and PF miR-199a (r=0.932). Serum miR-122 and miR-199a had a sensitivity of 95.6% and 100.0% and a specificity of 91.4% and 100%, respectively, for the detection of endometriosis.

CONCLUSION: Serum miR-122 and miR-199a were significantly increased in endometriosis, indicating that these microRNAs might serve as biomarkers for the diagnosis of endometriosis. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Abstractprevalence_and_diagnostic_accuracy_of_doppler_ultrasound_of_placenta_accreta_in_egypt.pdf

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to assess the prevalence of placenta accrete (PA) among those with placenta implanted over cesarean section (CS) scar and to evaluate the accuracy of Doppler ultrasound in diagnosis.

METHODS: A cross-sectional study included 100 patients with placenta previa (PP) anterior with at least one previous CS. Ultrasound and color Doppler were done to all participants and correlated with operative findings.

RESULTS: There was a significant difference between accrete and non-accrete group regarding maternal age (32.6 ± 5.01 versus 29.14 ± 4.89), and a highly significant difference regarding the postoperative hemoglobin (6.71 ± 1.156 versus 8.41 ± 1.257) and the number of previous CSs (p <.001). The abnormal Doppler findings showed a highly significant difference between the two groups as loss of retroplacental clear zone (87.3% versus 10.8%), intraplacental lacunae (93.7% versus 37.8%), hypervascularity in uterine bladder interface (47.6% versus 5.4%), and blood vessels invading myometrium (82.5% versus 18.9%) (p < .001). The sensitivity, specificity, PPV, NPV, and accuracy of loss of retroplacental clear were 87.3%, 89.19%, 93.2%, 80.49%, and 88%; intraplacental lacunae were 93.65%, 62.16%, 80.82%, 85.19%, and 82%; hypervascularity in uterine bladder interface were 47.62%, 94.59%, 93.75%, 51.47%, and 65%; dilated vessels over peripheral subplacental zone were 82.54%, 81.08%, 88.14%, 73.17%, and 82%, respectively. There was a highly significant difference between the two groups regarding surgical management with cesarean hysterectomy, occurrence of bladder injury, the need for intraoperative, and postoperative blood transfusion, ICU admission (p < .001).

CONCLUSION: The use of ultrasound together with the color Doppler allowed for better prediction of placental invasion of the myometrium prior to obstetrical intervention to improve the maternal and the fetal outcome.

Abstractthe_effect_of_hyoscine_butylbromide_on_the_duration_and_progress_of_labor_in_primigravidae_a_randomized_controlled_trial.pdf

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of hyoscine butylbromide (HBB) on duration of the first stage of labor in primigravdae.

METHODS: A case-control study conducted on 120 primigravida at term admitted in active labor were divided into three equal groups. A single dose of the drug (placebo or HBB 20 mg or HBB 40 mg) was injected intravenously slowly to groups A, B, and C. The duration of the first stage was calculated from the time of cervical dilatation of three to four centimeters in active labor until a fully dilated cervix was observed.

RESULTS: The duration of first stage was significantly shorter in women receiving 20 and 40 mg of HBB when controlled to control women (187.73 ± 20.92, 186.41 ± 19.40 versus 231.39 ± 33.14 min). There was no significant difference between the three study groups regarding duration of the second stage (36.76 ± 9.98, 35.72 ± 9.97 and 37.55 ± 10.57, respectively, p > .05), number of cases delivered by cesarean section (12.5%, 12.5%, and 15%, respectively, p > .05) and Apgar score of the neonates (p > .05). There was no significant difference between the three study groups regarding occurrence of side effects named dry mouth (7.5%, 12.5%, and 5%, p > .05), flushing (2.5%, 5% and 0%, p > .05), tachycardia (2.5%, 2.5%, and 2.5%, p > .05), or urinary retention (2.5%, 0%, and 0%, p > .05).

CONCLUSION: Intravenous injection of HBB decreases the duration of active phase of labor in primigravidae with no side effects.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficiency and safety of the new approach of laparoscopic cerclage.

STUDY DESIGN: Fifteen women were operated with our new technique. Their age ranged from 22 years to 35 years. Inclusion criteria included those with history of two or more second trimesteric abortions or early preterm labor. These women had at least two previous unsuccessful vaginal cerclage or vaginal insertion of cerclage is not possible because of congenitally short cervix, cervical conization or excessive cervical scarring.

RESULTS: Twelve of the participants delivered vaginally with the removal of cerclage, two had CS due to breech presentation and the cerclage was left in place and the last one has surgical evacuation. No intraoperative or postoperative complications were encountered namely; excessive bleeding, injury of uterine vessels or postoperative peritonitis. No technical difficulties upon doing the procedure or cerclage removal were met apart from one case where removal of the vaginal stitch was not possible [incision was done in the cervix over the tape and the Mersilene tape was cut followed by repair of the cervical tissue using (00) Vicryl stitches].

CONCLUSION: The new approach for laparoscopic cerclage is a safe, effective and reasonable treatment after failure of vaginal cerclage.

Ghamry, "Association of biochemical markers with the severity of pre-eclampsia.", International journal of gynaecology and obstetrics: the official organ of the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, vol. 136, issue 2, pp. 138-144, 2017 Feb. Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To assess the association between pre-eclampsia severity and biochemical and ultrasonography markers.

METHODS: A retrospective study was undertaken of women with severe pre-eclampsia (group 1, n=90), mild pre-eclampsia (group 2, n=90), or a normal pregnancy (group 3, n=90) who attended a hospital in Egypt in October 2013-April 2015. Associations between pre-eclampsia and biochemical, cardiotocography, and ultrasonography markers were investigated.

RESULTS: There were significant differences between the groups in C-reactive protein (331.44±112.38, 251.43±59.05, and 23.81±16.19 nmol/L; P≤0.05 for all), platelet count (113.40±36.72, 172.93±57.60, and 212.68±70.00×10(9) /L; P≤0.05 for group 1 comparisons), alanine transaminase (52.24±14.83, 38.34±13.12, and 23.11±6.92 U/L; P≤0.05 for group 1 comparisons), and serum uric acid (600.80±117.19, 481.83±118.97, and 243.89±53.54 μmol/L; P=0.050 for group 3 comparisons). Cardiotocography score was worse among women with severe pre-eclampsia than among those in the other two groups (P=0.039 for both comparisons). Biophysical profile score and umbilical artery resistance index differed by group (P≤0.05 for all). Middle cerebral artery resistance index was lower among women with severe pre-eclampsia (P≤0.05).

CONCLUSION: The levels of C-reactive protein, blood urea nitrogen, serum uric acid, and alanine transaminase, and the platelet count were linked with the presence and severity of pre-eclampsia.
