Grce au dosage de la concentration en progestrone du liquide pritonal, 96 heures aprs le pic srique de l'hormone lutinisante dans deux cycles conscutifs, la rcurrence du syndrome de follicule non-rompu a t dmontre. Chez de telles patientes on peut obtenir une rupture folliculaire en stimulant avec des gonadotrophines d'origine mnopausique, associes la gonadotrophine chorionique.

The concentration of progesterone in peritoneal fluid, aspirated from the pouch of Douglas by laparoscopy, 72 hours after the peak of the luteinizing hormone in serum is believed to indicate whether the ovarian follicle has ruptured or not. Twenty six patients were studied. The volume of peritoneal fluid 72 hours after the peak of the luteinizing hormone was markedly decreased when bilateral ovarian adhesions were present.

We carried out a case-control study to investigate the role of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including infection with HIV, as risk factors for adverse outcome of pregnancy. Overall, 1507 women were enrolled within 24 h of delivery. Cases (n = 796) were mothers of low-birthweight infants (less than 2500 g) or of stillborns. Low-birthweight infants were divided into preterms (n = 373) and neonates small for gestational age (n = 234). Stillborns were separated into intrauterine fetal deaths (n = 120), and intrapartum fetal deaths (n = 69).

During an ongoing study investigating the impact of maternal HIV infection on pregnancy outcome at a large maternity hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, asymptomatic HIV positive women who had recently delivered were informed of their HIV sero-status and counselled by a trained nurse regarding contraception and reproductive behaviour in a single session. Both HIV infected women and a comparison group of uninfected women matched for pregnancy outcome were followed up after an interval of one year. Contraceptive use, condom use and pregnancy rates were similar in both groups.

Since heterosexual transmission accounts for at least 80% of all cases of HIV-1 infection in sub-Saharan Africa, there are more women of reproductive age and children in this region with HIV-1 infection than in any other part of the world. In 1989, the Global Programme on Aids (GPA) of the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that there were 2.5 million women and 0.5 million children with HIV-1 infection in Africa. WHO has estimated that 4.0 million women and 1.0 million children will be infected by 1992.

The findings of first-trimester ultrasound scans are analyzed. The patients were divided into two groups according to the reliability of their alleged date of last menstrual period and the regularity of their menstrual cycle. The cost-effectiveness of a routine first trimester scan as compared to a selective approach is calculated. Based on these data we question the performance of a routine first-trimester scan.

Three commercially available RIA kits for serum and urinary LH were assessed for their usefulness to detect endogenous LH rise in patients receiving ovarian stimulation as part of an in vitro fertilization treatment for infertility. Prerequisites included a turn-around time of 5 hours for an assay of 100 tubes. The following parameters were evaluated: reproducibility of standard curve, sensibility, precision profile, within- and between -assay precision, analytical drift, recovery and linearity.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) include diseases that are mainly transmitted through sexual intercourse, though some may also be transmitted vertically from mother to child. The research has been focussing on the role of maternal STDs (gonococcal and chlamydial infections, syphilis, group B streptococcal, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Mycoplasma hominis, Trochomonas vaginalis and bacterial vaginosis) on pregnancy outcome. Furthermore, studies on the epidemiology of Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) infection and the impact of maternal HIV infection on pregnancy outcome were conducted.

Aan de hand van twee gevallen wordt een beknopt overzicht gegeven van de endoscopische behandeling van een niet-geruptureerde tubaire zwangerschap. De aandacht wordt erop gevestigd dat de laparascopie niet enkel als investigatiemiddel, maar ook als therapeutische toegangsweg kan aangewend worden. Gesteund op eigen ervaring en op de literatuurgegevens wordt ingegaan op de belangrijkste technische data van de methode.
