    Abstract : To minimize the risk of short-term and long-term morbidity and mortality among children born postterm, studies were performed to evaluate the fetal surveillance program. (1) Male-fetus pregnancies were at an increased risk... READ MORE

  3. 3. Involvement of vasopressin and oxytocin in the regulation of human uterine activity

    University dissertation from Margareta Steinwall, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital, S-221 85 LUND, Sweden

    Abstract : Vasopressin and oxytocin seem to have pivotal roles in the pathophysiology of primary dysmenorrhoea and preterm labour. Prostaglandins are also involved in the regulation of uterine activity with different receptors mediating both stimulation and relaxation. READ MORE

  4. 4. 12-14 week scan with emphasis on risk assessment for fetal structural malformations and fetal loss

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maria-Dorothea Westin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]

  5. 5. Dynamic Fetal and Placental Circulatory Changes during Uterine Contractions

    University dissertation from Per Olofsson, Dept. of Obstet & Gynecol, Malmö university hospital, S205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Hui Li; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]

    Abstract : The best mode of delivery for fetuses with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and umbilical artery (UA) blood flow changes is not well elucidated. Uterine artery, fetal UA, middle cerebral artery (MCA), and venous blood flow changes during uterine contractions during an oxytocin challenge test (OCT) have not been observed systemically. READ MORE
