OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of peritonization at cesarean section on postoperative vital signs which was thought to be an indirect finding secondary to increased sympathetic activity originated from pain caused by stretched peritoneum. METHODS: One hundred and thirty-three pregnant women were randomized to four groups; Closure of parietal peritoneum only (group 1; n = 32), closure of visceral and parietal peritoneums (group 2; n = 32), no closure of peritoneums (group 3; n = 32) and closure of the visceral peritoneum only (group 4; n = 32)...

Ectopia cordis is a rare congenital defect in which the heart is partially or completely exposed on the surface of the thorax. It may occur as an isolated malformation or it may be associated with a larger category of ventral body wall defects that affect the thorax, abdomen or both. The defect is also often associated with intracardiac lesions. We report here a case of ectopia cordis who was born by ceserean section and died after an hour.

METHODS: A multicenter, prospective, case control clinical study was carried out, propess was used in 100 cases as study group, the suppository without PGE(2) was used in 49 cases as control group. The cervical maturity (by Bishop scoring), the time to labor starting, membrane rupture and delivery, the application of oxytocin, ceserean section rate, fetal and neonatal condition were compared between 2 groups after inserting of the suppository...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that physicians with greater malpractice claims exposure, either through personal experience or in their practice environment, will use more prenatal resources and have a higher cesarean delivery rate than physicians with lesser claims exposure.

Delivery of nutrients to the fetus via the developing gastrointestinal tract has been advocated as a potential prenatal treatment for intrauterine growth retardation. Previous studies have demonstrated significant increases in fetal length and weight following continuous intraamniotic nutrient infusions in animals. The ideal composition of intraamniotic feedings has yet to be determined. Thirteen time-mated rabbit does underwent ceserean section between gestational days 27 and 33 to deliver 54 fetuses. The everted intestinal sleeve technique was used to measure radiolabeled carbohydrate and amino acid uptake rates from 1-cm segments of midjejunum...
