Fetal seizure is rarely observed. Investigation of both video‐recording of seizures and cardiotocography is crucial for a precise diagnosis. Here, we report a case of fetal seizure, and also show a video‐ultrasound recording. A 40‐year‐old woman was admitted to us due to loss of variability in cardiotocography. Ultrasound repeatedly revealed opisthotonus‐like and clonic‐seizure‐like movements. After...
Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) patients show transient ventricular dysfunction without coronary artery stenosis. We report a pregnant woman with TTS occurring concomitantly with severe pre‐eclampsia (PE). A primiparous woman complained of dyspnea at 35 weeks of gestation. She showed severe PE, and cardiac ultrasound identified akinesis of the anterior lower wall. On the same day, emergent cesarean section...
To clarify the frequency of occurrence of uterine rupture and its prognosis, a nationwide survey was performed.
Cases of uterine rupture recorded for a period of 5 years were included.
There were 152 cases of uterine rupture with an incidence rate of 0.015%. The scarred uterine rupture cases were found to have a significantly earlier occurrence of uterine ruptures in comparison...
Develop a core outcome set of international consensus definitions for severe maternal morbidities.
Electronic Delphi study.
Eight expert panels.
All 13 high‐income countries represented in the International Network of Obstetric Surveillance Systems (INOSS) nominated five experts per condition of morbidity, who submitted possible definitions...
To compare serum levels of angiogenesis‐related factors between 14 women with HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count) syndrome and a woman with acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP).
Serum samples were collected in 2004–2008 and 2013–2016. The levels of soluble fms‐like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt‐1) and placental growth factor (PlGF) were measured by an automated...
Hysteroscopic transcervical resection (TCR) is often performed as fertility sparing treatment for atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APA) patients. However, TCR has the risk of uterine wall perforation, especially when the tumor extends deeply into the uterine muscle layer. We report an APA patient in whom it was impossible to completely resect the tumor by TCR, but laparotomy tumor resection followed...
Measurement of the soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 (sFlt-1)/placental growth factor (PlGF) ratio may be clinically useful to discriminate systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) from preeclampsia. Here, we present a pregnant woman with new-onset SLE with hypertension, with the measurement of the sFlt-1/PlGF ratio during pregnancy. A 31-year-old Japanese nulliparous woman, who had been diagnosed with...
