Placental histology related to fetal brain sonography
Background: Chronic hypoxia and inflammatory processes can induce placental disturbances that may indirectly lead to perinatal brain injury. Objective: To study histological features of the placenta in relation to echogenicity ...
Is the prophylactic administration of magnesium sulphate in women with pre-eclampsia indicated prior to labour?
Objective: To determine whether prophylactic magnesium sulphate is necessary to prevent eclampsia and associated complications among women with pre-eclampsia prior to labour. Design: Case series. Setting: Tertiary referral ...
Routine or computerized cardiotocography in severe preeclampsia? a randomized controlled trial

Evaluation of the use of umbilical artery Doppler flow studies and outcome of pregnancies at a secondary hospital
Objective. To investigate the use of a personal computer (PC)-based, continuous-wave Doppler machine by a trained midwife at a secondary hospital to assess umbilical artery flow velocity waveforms (FVW) in referred women. ...
The effect of oral ketanserin on fetal heart rate parameters
Objective: To determine the effects of ketanserin given from early in the midtrimester of pregnancy on fetal heart rate parameters later in pregnancy. Methods: Patients with diastolic blood pressure persistently higher ...
Severe early onset pre-eclampsia: Prognostic value of ultrasound and Doppler assessment
Objective: Assess the prognostic value of ultrasound and Doppler parameters in severe preterm pre-eclampsia. Study design: Prospective cohort study in Cape Town, South Africa, involving 113 women with severe pre-eclampsia ...
