Sayed, "Effect of ultrasound-guided aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid during oocyte retrieval on the outcomes of in vitro fertilisation-embryo transfer: a randomised controlled trial (NCT01040351).", Gynecological endocrinology : the official journal of the International Society of Gynecological Endocrinology, vol. 27, issue 8, pp. 562-7, 2011 Aug. Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the ultrasound-guided aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid at the time of oocyte retrieval can improve the outcomes of in vitro fertilisation-embryo transfer (IVF-ET).

PATIENTS: One hundred and ten women with ultrasound-visible hydrosalpinges were randomised to two groups based on computer generated randomisation list. Fifty-four women underwent ultrasound-guided aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid prior to IVF-ET and 53 women underwent IVF-ET without any prior intervention.

RESULTS: Patients who underwent aspiration of hydrosalpinges demonstrated a significantly increased implantation, clinical pregnancy rates. Among the patients in the aspiration group, the implantation rate and pregnancy rates were higher in the subgroup of patients with no reaccumulation of hydrosalpingeal fluid within the first 2 weeks after aspiration compared to patients with reaccumulation of hydrosalpingeal fluid within the first 2 weeks after aspiration, but this difference failed to reach statistical significance. Furthermore, no pregnancies occurred in the four patients with uterine fluid collection detected during IVF-ET cycles.

CONCLUSION: The aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid at the time of oocyte retrieval is simple, safe and effective procedure for treatment of patients with ultrasound-visible hydrosalpinges particularly those without rapid reaccumulation of hydrosalpingeal fluid after aspiration or uterine fluid collection during the IVF-ET cycles.

A 38-year-old multiparous woman with post thyroidectomy hypoparathyroidism developed pruritic erythematous patches with multiple pustules on its margins on her thighs and groin accompanied by fever few days after delivery by caesarean section. Impetigo herpetiformis was diagnosed based on the typical clinicopathological findings. The patient was treated with intravenous fluids, calcium, Calcitrol and corticosteroids. The correction of hypocalcaemia was accompanied with rapid improvement of her skin disease and general condition. Our case is the fourth case of impetigo herpetiformis initially presented during puerperium and the first case of puerperal impetigo herpetiformis that is precipitated by secondary hypoparathyroidism. The awareness of the possible occurrence of impetigo herpetiformis during the puerperium allows early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of maternal complications.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) plus low-dose aspirin (LDA) is comparable in efficacy and safety to unfractionated heparin (UFH) plus LDA in the management of pregnant women with a history of recurrent spontaneous abortion secondary to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).

METHODS: In a randomized prospective study, 60 women with a history of 3 or more consecutive spontaneous abortions and positive antiphospholipid antibodies were assigned in equal numbers to receive either UFH (5000 units, twice daily) plus LDA, or LMWH (enoxaparin 40 mg, once daily) plus LDA as soon as pregnancy was diagnosed.

RESULTS: Twenty-four women in the LMWH group (80%) and 20 women in the UFH group (66.67%) delivered a viable infant (P = 0.243). There were no significant differences in pregnancy complications or neonatal morbidity between the 2 groups. There were no incidences of excessive bleeding, thrombocytopenia, or osteoporotic fractures in either group.

CONCLUSION: LMWH plus LDA was successfully used as an alternative to UFH plus LDA in the management of recurrent abortion secondary to APS. The results highlight the need for a larger randomized controlled trial to determine whether LMWH plus LDA should be the treatment of choice for recurrent abortion secondary to APS.

Abstract

AIMS: To assess the effectiveness of vaginal misoprostol in minimizing the pain perceived by patients with no risk factors for cervical stenosis (i.e., parous women of reproductive age who have no history of cesarean section or cervical surgery) during diagnostic office hysteroscopy.

METHODS: A total of 100 patients with no risk factors for cervical stenosis were randomized to the misoprostol group (n = 50) or the placebo group (n = 50). In the misoprostol group, 2 misoprostol tablets (400 µg) were administered vaginally 12 h before office hysteroscopy. In the placebo group, 2 placebo tablets were administered. The patients rated the intensity of pain perceived during the procedure and at 30 min after the procedure with the use of a 100 mm visual analog scale (VAS). The hysteroscopists also scored the difficulty of hysteroscope insertion into the uterine cavity with the use of a 100 mm VAS.

RESULTS: There were no significant differences between both groups in the VAS pain scores during or at 30 min after the procedure (28.3 ± 13.58 vs. 30.42 ± 15.13 and 11.1 ± 10.23 vs. 13.32 ± 11.12, respectively). The difficulty of hysteroscope insertion into the uterine cavity was comparable between both groups.

CONCLUSION: Misoprostol administration prior to diagnostic office hysteroscopy appears to have no beneficial role in the subgroup of patients with no risk factors for cervical stenosis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To detect the structural and functional changes of fetal hearts in diabetic pregnancies by using Doppler echocardiography.

METHODS: This prospective study included 119 pregnant women divided into three groups. Group 1 included 47 pregnant patients with pre-existing diabetes mellitus (DM), group 2 included 40 patients with gestational diabetes and group 3 included 32 non-diabetic pregnant women. M-mode echocardiography was used to measure the thickness of the fetal ventricular walls and interventricular septum. The mitral and tricuspid early (E) and late (A) diastolic velocities and the ventricular shortening fraction were measured.

RESULTS: HbA1c % was significantly lower in gestational diabetes group compared with the pre-existing diabetes group. The interventricular septum was significantly thicker in the pre-existing diabetes group compared with other groups. Tricuspid and mitral E/A ratios were significantly lower in the pre-existing diabetes group compared with gestational diabetes and control groups. Moreover, there were no significant differences in the tricuspid and mitral E/A ratios between gestational diabetes group and the control group. The right and left ventricular shortening fractions were similar in the three groups.

CONCLUSION: Fetuses of women with well-controlled gestational diabetes lack the diastolic dysfunction that is present in fetuses of women with pre-existing diabetes.

Abstract

Current therapies for treatment of proliferative retinopathy focus on retinal neovascularization (RNV) during advanced disease and can trigger adverse side-effects. Here, we have tested a new strategy for limiting neurovascular injury and promoting repair during early-stage disease. We have recently shown that treatment with a stable, pegylated drug form of the ureohydrolase enzyme arginase 1 (A1) provides neuroprotection in acute models of ischemia/reperfusion injury, optic nerve crush, and ischemic stroke. Now, we have determined the effects of this treatment on RNV, vascular repair, and retinal function in the mouse oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) model of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Our studies in the OIR model show that treatment with pegylated A1 (PEG-A1), inhibits pathological RNV, promotes angiogenic repair, and improves retinal function by a mechanism involving decreased expression of TNF, iNOS, and VEGF and increased expression of FGF2 and A1. We further show that A1 is expressed in myeloid cells and areas of RNV in retinal sections from mice with OIR and human diabetic retinopathy (DR) patients and in blood samples from ROP patients. Moreover, studies using knockout mice with hemizygous deletion of A1 show worsened RNV and retinal injury, supporting the protective role of A1 in limiting the OIR-induced pathology. Collectively, A1 is critically involved in reparative angiogenesis and neuroprotection in OIR. Pegylated A1 may offer a novel therapy for limiting retinal injury and promoting repair during proliferative retinopathy.
