Cerebral pontine infarctions during pregnancy - A case report and review of the literature.

Case Rep Womens Health 2019 Jan 23;21:e00097. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

University of South Alabama, Children's and Women's Hospital, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 251 Cox Street, Mobile, AL 36604, United States.

Cerebrovascular disease is not uncommon during pregnancy as a result of either venous or arterial occlusion, or a hemorrhagic event, resulting in ischemia. Pregnancy may alter the prognosis of these neurologic disorders, with increased risks of morbidity and mortality for the mother and the developing fetus. Etiologies of stroke during pregnancy and the postpartum period include preeclampsia, eclampsia, HELLP syndrome, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), amniotic fluid embolism, postpartum angiopathy, postpartum cardiomyopathy, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), cerebral venous thrombosis, CNS infections, and maternal thrombophilia.

Sud Med Ekspert 2018 ;61(6):48-51

Department of Forensic Medicine, S.M. Kirov Military Medical Academy, Ministry of Defense of the Russia, Saint-Petersburg, Russia, 194044.

The authors report two cases of extended amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) associated with the birth-giving process with the analysis of their causes and the discussion of the possible pathways through which the amniotic fluid penetrates into maternal blood. A rare cause of amniotic fluid embolism due to the rupture of placental membranes as a result of submembranous hemorrhage is described. The changes in the lungs associated with extended AFE are apparent in the presence of macroscopic emboli formed from the particles of the amniotic fluid. Read More

Amniotic fluid embolism and spontaneous hepatic rupture during uncomplicated pregnancy: a case report and literature review.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2018 Nov 4:1-8. Epub 2018 Nov 4.

a Department of Forensic Science, School of Basic Medical Sciences , Central South University , Changsha , China.

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) and spontaneous hepatic rupture both are extremely rare complications of pregnancy that can be fatal to mother and/or child. AFE is characterized by a sudden collapse of the cardiovascular system, a change in mental status, and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), occurring immediately during labor, delivery, or postpartum, caused by the inflow of amniotic components into the maternal circulation. Spontaneous hepatic rupture during pregnancy which is most often occurs alongside hypertensive disorders, eclampsia, or HELLP syndrome. Read More

Intraluminal Arterial Filling Defects Misdiagnosed as Pulmonary Emboli: What Else Could They Be?

Clin Chest Med 2018 Sep;39(3):505-513

Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Geisinger, 100 North Academy Avenue, Danville, PA 17822-1334, USA.

Pulmonary artery filling defects can be observed in various pathologic processes other than pulmonary embolism, for example, nonthrombotic pulmonary embolism with biological and nonbiological materials and intrinsic pulmonary artery lesions. They have also been described in rare conditions, such as fibrosing mediastinitis and congenital absence or stenosis of pulmonary artery, and some pulmonary parenchymal and airway malignancies. Misdiagnosis is common owing to the relative rarity of these conditions. Read More

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Japanese Red Cross Ise Hospital, Ise, Japan.

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) causes consumption coagulopathy, which requires a massive transfusion to save the mother's life. The preparation of such a massive transfusion is too time-consuming in extremely emergent clinical settings and occasionally leads to devastating side effects such as transfusion-associated acute lung injury. C1 esterase inhibitor (C1INH) is a protein with the ability to inhibit complement, coagulation and kinin pathways. Read More

Z Geburtshilfe Neonatol 2018 Aug 25;222(4):143-151. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Alexandroupolis, Democritus University of Thrace, Greece.

According to data from the WHO, maternal mortality ratio has dropped worldwide by 44% between 1990 and 2015, yet more than 300,000 mothers still die annually, about 99% of them in the developing countries. In some developed countries the incidence of maternal deaths has even increased during the past 2 decades. The leading causes of direct maternal deaths are haemorrhage (nearly 3-quarters from postpartum haemorrhage), pulmonary embolism including amniotic fluid embolism, and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy; the leading cause of indirect maternal deaths is cardiac disease of the mother.

Why kidneys fail post-partum: a tubulocentric viewpoint.

J Nephrol 2018 Oct 10;31(5):645-651. Epub 2018 Apr 10.

APHP, Hôpital Tenon, Urgences Néphrologiques et Transplantation Rénale, 4 rue de la Chine, 75020, Paris, France.

Kidneys may fail post-partum in a number of circumstances due, for example, to post-partum haemorrhage, preeclampsia, amniotic fluid embolism or septic abortion. All these conditions in pregnancy and post partum represent a threat not only to the endothelium but also to the renal tubular epithelium, and as such may lead to rapid and also irreversible impairment of the renal function. This paper is a non-systematic review of the literature and of our experience, in which we discuss the main open issues on kidney disease in pregnancy and following delivery, in particular as regards tubular damage, with the aim to help reasoning on acute kidney injury (AKI) following delivery.

[Maternal death by venous thromboembolic disease].

Gynecol Obstet Fertil Senol 2017 Dec 21;45(12S):S31-S37. Epub 2017 Nov 21.

Gynécologie-obstétrique et médecine de la reproduction, université Caen, UFR médecine, CHU de Caen, avenue de la Côte-de-Nacre, 14003 Caen, France.

Pregnancy and postpartum are very high-risk periods for venous thromboembolism events (TEE), which seems to extend far beyond the classical 6-8 weeks after childbirth. Pulmonary embolism (PE) is one of the 3 main causes of direct maternal death in western countries. Between 2010 an 2012 in France, 24 deaths were related to PE giving a maternal mortality ratio of 1/100,000, which is not different from the former report (2007-2009). Read More

Maternité, hôpital privé de Villeneuve d'Ascq, Quartier du Recueil, 20, avenue de La Reconnaissance, 59491 Villeneuve-d'Ascq, France.

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is an unpredictable, dreadful complication of pregnancy or childbirth. EA typically includes in the same lapse of time respiratory, haemodynamic, neurological and hemorrhagic symptoms (from early and severe coagulopathy). Immediate supportive treatment by a multidisciplinary team is the cornerstone of the management. Read More

Comparison of the Different Definition Criteria for the Diagnosis of Amniotic Fluid Embolism.

J Clin Diagn Res 2017 Jul 1;11(7):QC18-QC21. Epub 2017 Jul 1.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Nara Medical University, Nara, Japan.

Introduction: There are several sets of criteria for the diagnosis of Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE), but little is known about their degree of agreement.

Aim: To evaluate the concordance of the Japan criteria for AFE in comparison with two definitions: the US AFE registration entry criteria (the US criteria) and UK Obstetric Surveillance System criteria for defining cases of amniotic fluid embolism (the UK criteria).

Materials And Methods: A retrospective observational study was conducted in which the AFE cases registered in the Obstetrical Gynaecological Society of Kinki District in Japan for the period of April 2005 to December 2012 have been analysed by the expert steering obstetric committee, organized by the members of the Obstetric Research group.
