The aim of this study was to elucidate the impact of autologous umbilical cord blood cells (USSC) on bone regeneration and biomechanical stability in an ovine tibial bone defect. Ovine USSC were harvested and characterized. After 12 months, full-size 2.0 cm mid-diaphyseal bone defects were created and stabilized by an external fixateur containing a rigidity measuring device. Defects were filled with (i) autologous USSC on hydroxyapatite (HA) scaffold (test group), (ii) HA scaffold without cells (HA group), or (iii) left empty (control group)...

A fluid dynamic study of blood flow within the umbilical vessels of the human maternal-fetal circulatory system is considered. It is found that the umbilical coiling index (UCI) is unable to distinguish between cords of significantly varying pressure and flow characteristics, which are typically determined by the vessel curvature, torsion and length. Larger scale geometric non-uniformities superposed over the inherent coiling, including cords exhibiting width and/or local UCI variations as well as loose true knots, typically produce a small effect on the total pressure drop...

Objectives: To deepen the knowledge in obstetrics on a very rare pregnancy complication: umbilical cord hematoma. Methods: A review of the case reports described in the last ten years in the literature was conducted in order to evaluate epidemiology, predisposing factors, potential outcomes, prenatal diagnosis, and clinical management. Results: Spontaneous umbilical cord hematoma is a rare complication of pregnancy which represents a serious cause of fetal morbidity and mortality...

The aim of this study was to summarize the current status of the possible causes, clinical symptoms and pathogenesis of abortion in the mare and to evaluate the frequency of varying causes of abortion in German thoroughbred breeding. An analysis of the literature using electronic libraries, journals and textbooks was performed. In addition, the results of examinations of 123 abortions of thoroughbred breeding in central Germany were evaluated. In the literature, bacterial infections are the most frequently described cause of abortion...

Objective: To explore the high risk factors of stillbirth. Methods: 176 cases of stillbirth were collected in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Fudan University from January 1(st), 2010 to December 31(st), 2016. All cases were analyzed retrospectively, including general profile, high risk factors of stillbirth in different years and pregnancy periods. Results: (1) The incidence of stillbirth was 0.178%(176/98 785). Stillbirth occured mostly at 28-28(+6) gestational weeks (10.8%,19/176), and the second peak was 29-29(+6) weeks(10...

Knowledge of congenital malformations and their causes in horses is generally sparse. Such conditions require more scientific attention to improve their diagnostics and inform prevention strategies. Here, a unique syndrome of bilateral oblique facial clefts (meloschisis), rudimentary eyes and hydrocephalus is reported in an equine foetus spontaneously aborted at gestation day 224. The cause of abortion was considered to be intrauterine death caused by umbilical cord torsions and subsequent compromised blood flow, but the aetiology of the malformation could not be determined...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the risk factors of velamentous umbilical cord insertion(VCI)and the impact of VCI on perinatal outcomes. METHODS: The clinical data of 588 VCI patients who were treated in Beijing Gynecology and Obstetrics Hospital from January 2006 to January 2011 were retrospectively analyzed. In addition,61,143 non-VCI subjects were enrolled as the control group. The possible risk factors of VCI and the impact of VCI on perinatal outcomes were analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Meckel's diverticulum (MD) is the most prevalent congenital anomaly of small intestine. It develops due to the incomplete obliteration of omphalomesenterict duct which normally undergoes obliteration during the seventh week of gestation. In the majority of cases MD is asymptomatic but it may cause various complications, such as bleeding, intestinal obstruction and inflammation. Cases of umbilical sinuses, fistulas and neoplasms related with MD have been reported, but extremely rare gangrene due to its axial torsion, especially in children, as is the case of our patients...

OBJECTIVE: To study the pathogenesis, pathologic features and prognosis of fetal nuchal cystic hygroma. METHODS: Forty autopsied cases of fetal nuchal cystic hygroma were collected during January 2003 to December 2012. The clinical history, pathologic changes and immunohistochemical (EnVision method) findings were reviewed, and the pathogenesis and pathologic characteristics were analyzed. RESULTS: Of the 40 cases, 16 (40.0%) showed single malformation and 24 (60...

Cellular therapy for myocardial repair has been one of the most intensely investigated interventional strategies for acute myocardial infarction. Although the therapeutic potential of stem cells has been demonstrated in various studies, the underlying mechanisms for such improvements are poorly understood. In the present study, we investigated the long-term effects of stem cell therapy on both myocardial fiber organization and regional contractile function using a rat model of postinfarct remodeling. Human nonhematopoietic umbilical cord blood stem cells (nh-UCBSCs) were administered via tail vein to rats 2 days after infarct surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Intrapartum fetal heart rate decelerations and bradycardia are often attributed to umbilical cord occlusion without knowing the anatomic basis of that occlusion. We hypothesized that umbilical cord twisting while looped around fetal parts could occlude blood flow. METHODS: Using an in vitro preparation, human umbilical cord veins were perfused at one end with water at approximately 40 cm H2O. The cords were looped around pipes that approximated the diameter of fetal body or limb parts, after which the perfused segment of cord was twisted until water flow stopped...

Neonatal inguinoscrotal lesion, or hematocele of neonates, is attributed to trauma from the plastic clamp used to ligate the umbilical cord immediately after delivery. The pathogenesis is thought to be related to two factors: incorrect clamping technique, in which the clamp is eccentric or too distal, and the infant's position, lying over the clamp. This is a rare event that usually appears on the 2nd day of life, with very few reports recorded in the literature. The lesion does not have any complications, but may be easily confused with testicular torsion...

The authors report a case of intra-abdominal testicular torsion, where laparoscopy has been useful for diagnosis and surgical management. A boy was presented with a left impalpable testis. Laparoscopy revealed a twisted spermatic cord at the inlet pelvis, which ended in a testicular remnant located in the sub-umbilical area. After orchiectomy, the pathologist confirmed testicular atrophy. Diagnosis of intra-abdominal testicular torsion should be considered in patients with impalpable testis and abdominal pain, but could not be excluded in those with no symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between pathological abnormalities of placenta and small-for-gestational-age neonates. METHODS: One hundred placentas of small-for-gestational-age (SGA group) and 200 appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA group) with single living birth in third trimester were investigated by gross and microscopic examination. The AGA placentas were collected from 2 cases following every SGA placenta. All cases were collected from Shanghai Changning District Maternity and Infant Health Hospital from January 2010 to December 2011...

"Cord accident" (compromised umbilical blood flow) as a cause of stillbirth is underreported, mainly due to a lack of diagnostic criteria. Based on fetal vascular pathology in the placenta, we have previously established histologic criteria for the diagnosis of cord accident. In the current study, we set out to test the sensitivity and specificity of these criteria by reviewing an independent set of stillbirth cases. Placental slides from 26 cases (in which cord accident was deemed the cause of death) and 62 controls (in which the cause of death was anything other than cord accident) were reviewed...

UNLABELLED: Progress in perinatology and neonatal intensive care led to surgical treatment of premature infants born with low (<1500 g) and extremely low (<1000 g) birth weight. AIM: Evaluation of surgical treatment in the group of neonates with very low birth weight (<1500 g) and extremely low birth weight (<1000 g). MATERIAL AND METHODS: In the years 2000-2009 in the Department of Paediatric Surgery in the Institute of Mother and Child, 617 neonates underwent surgical treatment, 101 of them (16%) were born with very low or extremely low birth weight...
