Case Report Volume 3 Issue 1

Three-Dimensional Ultrasound Assists in Accurately Characterizing Cervical Ectopic Gestation: A Case Report

Authors: June Ng, MD, Shelley Dolitsky, MD, Mark V Sauer, MD and Meike Schuster, DO

Abstract: Cervical ectopic pregnancy (CEP) is rare, and occurs when the blastocyst implants into the endocervical canal. They are particularly dangerous because they are difficult to diagnose, and typically present with massive hemorrhage necessitating hysterectomy. Therefore, there exists a need to definitively diagnose this condition earlier.

Reproductive Implications of Consanguinity: Recurrent Hydrops and a Fetal Diagnosis of Lethal Gaucher Disease

Authors: Jenani S Jayakumaran, MD, MHS, Shama Khan, MPH, MS, LGC, Elena Ashkinadze LGC and Meike Schuster, DO

Abstract: Consanguinity is defined as a relationship with one recent ancestor in common. While this is uncommon in western countries, over one seventh of the world's population is estimated to live in countries where 25-50% of marriages are consanguineous. This varies significantly from one population to another depending on many factors including religion, culture, public attitude, legislation, socio-economic condition and geography.

Case Study Volume 3 Issue 1

Gene Deletions due to Ring Chromosome 16 are Associated with Low Reproductive Potential, a Novel Observation

Authors: Tal Lazer and Shevach Friedler

Abstract: Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) is characterized by decreased number of oocytes associated with poor ovarian response (POR) to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH). Presently, few specific known chromosomal abnormalities are associated with DOR. Ring chromosome is among the least likely genetic abnormality reported to impact female infertility. It may occurs when two breaks are created in one chromosome and the resulting ends fuse to form a ring, leading to loss of distal genetic material.

Review Article Volume 3 Issue 1

The Elusive Magical Solution: The Relationship between Vitamin D and Fibroids

Authors: Mohamed Mansi, Nader Sedik, Mahmoud El-Hadidy and Sara Mohamed

Abstract: Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of the smooth muscles of the uterus that are the most common indication of hysterectomy in the America with over $34.4 billion annual cost. Risk factors include age, hypertension, diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, black race, early age of menarche, nulliparity, obesity and a genetic factor comes in place. Their pathophysiology has not been fully understood; genetic and hormonal factors, particularly sex steroids, seem to play a role. Many treatments for fibroid have been proposed both medical and surgical. However, the perfect medical treatment is still elusive.

Case Report Volume 2 Issue 1

Twin Pregnancy with a Complete Hydatidiform Mole and a Coexisting Normal Fetus

Authors: Fatnassi MR, Ghedas S, Marouen N and Mtibaa A

Abstract: Twins pregnancies associating both complete hydatidiform mole and normal pregnancies represent an exceptional obstetrical situation. It is a high risk gestation either for the mother or for the normal fetus. There are no specific clinical features. The ultrasonography examination, thanks to its recent evolution, is the key stone for an earlier diagnosis.

Postoperative Surgicel Mimicking Pelvic Abscess Causing Mechanical Bowel Obstruction following Abdominal Hysterectomy

Authors: Mariam Mathew, Jai kumari, Asma Fauzi and Rashid Al Sukaiti

Abstract: Oxidized regenerated cellulose (Surgicel), a sterile knitted fabric that causes thrombus formation due to its physical properties, is frequently used for intraoperative hemostasis. Surgicel is bioabsorbable and can be left in the surgical bed. On postoperative CT scans, the appearance of the retained oxidized cellulose can often mimic an abscess leading to dilemma in management.

Two Clinical Cases and Some General Aspects of Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome

Authors: Delgado Sanchez E , Lopez Carrasco A, Sanchez Pastor M, Santisteban Padro J, Hernandez and Gutierrez A

Abstract: The complete androgen insensitivity syndrome, formerly called testicular feminization syndrome, is a rare genetic disease in which an individual with a male XY karyotype expresses a female phenotype.

Short Review Volume 1 Issue 1

Obstetrics at Crossroads Regarding Interpretation of Fetal Heart Rate Decelerations - Scientific Principles and Lessons from Memetics

Authors: Shashikant L Sholapurkar

Abstract: The survival of cardiotocography (CTG) as a tool for intrapartum fetal monitoring seems threatened (somewhat unjustifiably and unwittingly) despite the absence of better alternatives. Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) decelerations are centre-stage (most important) in interpretation of CTG with maximum impact on 3-tier classification.

Research Article Volume 1 Issue 1

Risk Comprehension at a Minority-Majority Urban Academic Institution

Authors: Noor Joudi, Kelly McCarter and Jose A Carugno

Abstract: There is a growing shift toward the promotion of shared decision making in clinical practice. Currently, medical risk is often communicated to patients in the form of percentages, although there is no evidence that this is the most effective method to deliver this information.

LETTER Volume 1 Issue 1

Incidence of Pregnancy-Associated Hypertension and Preeclampsia in a Cohort of Kenyan Women

Authors: Megumi Itoh, Florence Were, Mary Owidhi, Julie Gutman, Meghna Desai and Simon Kariuki

Abstract: Pregnancy-associated hypertension (PAH) and preeclampsia are leading causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality, associated with future development of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in the mother, as well as risks for the baby such as poor growth and prematurity.

CASE REPORT Volume 1 Issue 1

Image of a Peri-Clitoral Abscess, Presenting with Minimal Swelling and Distortion

Authors: Michael H Dahan and Seang Lin Tan

Abstract: Periclitoral abscesses are rare with less than 20 reported in the medical literature. Images without severely distorted clitorii are lacking in the literature, which led to multiple misdiagnosis in this case.
