Some patients with Kawasaki disease (KD) develop cardiac sequelae, which increase the risk of subsequent ischemic heart events. Knowing the cumulative incidence (CI) of KD with cardiac sequelae may contribute to developing health policies to prevent subsequent ischemic events in these patients.
Study participants consisted of 254 984 patients aged 0–9 years with KD who were registered...
We examined whether critical conditions, which were defined as having hemoglobin (Hb) less than 7.0 g/dL, shock index ≥1.0, or need for transfusion, were associated with the presence of extravasation (EV) on dynamic computed tomography (CT) in women with late post‐partum hemorrhage (PPH).
Forty post‐partum women with late PPH without evident retained products of conception performed...
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...
