Fetal Renal Echogenicity Associated with Maternal Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis: The Effect of Transplacental Transmission of Permeability Factor suPAR.

J Clin Med 2018 Oct 4;7(10). Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology, Sunnybrook Science Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON M4N 3M5, Canada.

We report a case of a pregnant woman with nephrotic syndrome due to biopsy-proven focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) whose fetus developed echogenic kidneys and severe oligohydramnios by 27 weeks of gestation. Maternal treatment with prednisone resulted in normalization of the amniotic fluid indices and resolution of fetal renal echogenicity. The newborn was noted to have transient renal dysfunction and proteinuria, resolving by 6 weeks postpartum. Read More

A Novel Approach to Serial Amnioinfusion in a Case of Premature Rupture of Membranes Near the Limit of Viability.

AJP Rep 2018 Jul 14;8(3):e180-e183. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Prelabor rupture of the membranes (PROM) near the limit of viability is associated with significant risks for both mother and fetus. Preterm labor, intra-amniotic infection, and placental abruption are the immediate risks to the pregnancy; however, the fetus incurs additional risks related to the sequela of persistent oligohydramnios. Transabdominal intra-amniotic infusions have been studied. Read More

Early Accreta and Uterine Rupture in the Second Trimester.

Cureus 2018 Jul 1;10(7):e2904. Epub 2018 Jul 1.

MS4/Ross University School of Medicine, California Hospital Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA.

The differential diagnosis of third trimester bleeding can range from placenta abruptia to placenta previa to uterine rupture and the placenta accreta spectrum (PAS). However, patients with risk factors such as multiple cesarean sections (c-sections), advanced maternal age (AMA), grand multiparity, and single-layer uterine closure are at greater risk of developing these complications earlier than we would traditionally expect. This case recounts a 38-year-old gravida 6 preterm 3 term 1 abortus 1 live 4 (G6P3114) at 23 weeks and five days gestational age (GA) with a past medical history of preterm pregnancy, pre-eclampsia, chronic abruptia, three previous c-sections, and low-lying placenta who presented to the emergency department (ED) with vaginal bleeding.

Histopathological examination of the placenta in twin pregnancies.

APMIS 2018 Jul;126(7):626-637

Department of Pathology, Cork University Hospital, Cork, Ireland.

Twin placentas are frequently received in pathology laboratories for evaluation of chorionicity and because twin pregnancies have higher rates of pregnancy complications. In addition to pathologies common in singleton pregnancies, twin pregnancies have increased frequencies of complications such as preterm birth and velamentous cord insertions and also are affected by complications unique to multiple pregnancies that are mediated by vascular connections between the placental territories of certain types of twins. This article aims to provide an approach to examination of the twin placenta for practicing pathologists or those interested in placental pathology while outlining the key characteristics of twin complications as seen in the placenta.
