Couples were matched on hospital, age, duration of subfertility, primary or secondary subfertility and diagnosis.
Primary outcome was cumulative ongoing pregnancy rate after three years. Time to pregnancy was censored at the
moment couples were lost to follow up or when their child wish ended and, for the no-treatment group, when
couples re-started treatment.
In couples with unexplained subfertility and a poor prognosis for natural conception, treatment with IUI does not
to add to expectant management. There is need for a randomized clinical trial comparing IUI with expectant
management in these couples. We further stress the importance of temporal resolution achieved in the experiments
and argue that measurements of both time-resolved MOKE rotation and ellipticity are needed for the correct
assessment of magnetization dynamics on sub-picosecond timescales.
The primary objective our study was to assess the role of diagnostic antepartum amnioinfusion on the yield from
targeted ultrasounds performed in pregnancies with severe oligo- and anhydramnios. MK can reflect
microstructural changes of white matter and gray matter of spinal cord in patients with early CSM and has the
potential to provide new information prior to conventional diffusion metrics such as MD and FA.
This was a retrospective and descriptive study, conducted in the fetal medicine units of two private tertiary
care referral centers in south India. The details of all the cases of diagnostic amnioinfusion performed at
these two centers from January 2009 to June 2016 were collected and analyzed.
Inclusion criteria were pregnancies between 17 and 26 weeks of gestational age with severe oligo- or
anhydramnios. Pregnancies with obvious preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) were excluded. Our results
have shown a significant increase in miRNA-21 expression with increasing histopathologic grade, while there was
a significant reduction in miRNA-107 expression with the increasing histopathological grade.
The primary outcome measure was the improvement in diagnostic information pertaining to cause of severe oligo-
and anhydramnios, and the nature of such anomalies. miRNA-137 and miRNA-29b expression did not differ
significantly according to histopathologic grade. We study interlayer exchange coupling based on the many-body
Coulomb interaction between conduction electrons in magnetic tunnel junction. This mechanism complements the
known interaction between magnetic layers based on virtual electron hopping (or spin currents).
Antepartum amnioinfusion is a valuable ancillary technique in prenatal diagnosis as it increases the diagnostic
yield from pregnancies presenting with severe oligo- and anhydramnios. A total of 50 meningioma patients (16 men
and 34 women) aged between 32 and 80 years were included. The study was conducted at Istanbul Research and
Training Hospital Neurosurgery Clinic.
the association between miRNA expression and meningioma, is continuously gaining more importance in the wider
context of the recent developments in genetic treatments. DKI metrics such as fractional anisotropy (FA), mean
diffusivity (MD), and mean diffusional kurtosis (MK) values were calculated separately for white matter (WM) and
gray matter (GM).
To investigate the application value of diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) in evaluating microstructural changes
in the spinal cord of patients with early cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). Twenty-five patients with early
clinical stage CSM and twenty-five healthy controls underwent 3.0T MR scans with conventional MRI sequences and
DKI with echo-planar imaging (EPI) sequence.
We discuss fundamental aspects of laser-induced ultrafast demagnetization probed by the time-resolved
magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE). We provide a mathematical formalism for retrieving genuine laser-induced
magnetization dynamics and discuss its applicability in real experimental situations.
Studying thin Fe films on MgO substrate in the absence of electronic transport, we demonstrate how to disentangle
pump-induced variations of magnetization and magneto-optical coefficients. The framework developed here sheds
light onto the details of the time-resolved MOKE technique and contributes to the understanding of the interplay
between ultrafast laser-induced optical and magnetic effects.
