Does Parity have an Effect on Fetal Behavior? A Comparison between Primi- and Multiparas

[Year:2016] [Month:January-March] [Volume:10] [Number:1] [Pages:4] [Pages No:99 - 102]

Abstract

Aim

To evaluate the effect of parity on fetal behavior between primi- and multiparas.

Materials and methods

Fetal behavior was assesed by Kurjak's antenatal neurodevelopmental test (KANET) using four-dimensional (4D) ultrasound between 32 and 36 weeks of gestation. Forty-four primiparous and 61 multiparous women were studied. The total value of the KANET score and values of each parameter (8 parameters) were compared

Results

The total KANET score was normal in both groups except for in only one case in the multiparous group (total KANET score of 9), and there was no significant difference in the total KANET score. When individual KANET parameters were compared, we found a significant difference in only one fetal movement, isolated eye blinking, between fetuses of primiparas (median, 2; range, 0–2) and multiparas (median, 1; range, 0–2) (p < 0.040). No significant differences were noted in the other seven parameters.

Conclusion

Our results suggest that the level of relaxation of pregnant women may affect fetal behavior, particularly the rate of eye blinking. A relaxed state of primiparas may promote the maturation of the fetal brain, especially the central dopamine system function

Assessment of Tubal Patency with Tridimensional Coded Contrast Imaging Hysterosalpingo-Contrast- Sonography Compared with Conventional HyCoSy: A Preliminary Study

[Year:2016] [Month:January-March] [Volume:10] [Number:1] [Pages:4] [Pages No:103 - 106]

Abstract

Objective

The aim of this preliminary study is to analyze and compare tridimensional coded contrast imaging hysterosalpingocontrast- sonography (3D-CCI HyCoSy) with conventional hysterosalpingo-contrast-sonography (HyCoSy) with saline serum for the evaluation of tubal patency in women with sterility.

Materials and methods

This was a prospective preliminary observational study performed in the Clinica Universidad de Navarra. Intending to compare 3D-CCI HyCoSy with conventional HyCoSy, we decided and perform conventional HyCoSy between 1st of January 2015 and 15th of February 2015 and 3D-CCI HyCoSy between 16th of February and 15th of April 2015, in different sets of patients. Exclusion criteria were: recent vaginal infection, previous pelvic inflammatory disease, previous salpingectomy or hidrosalpinx diagnosed previously or while performing the ultrasound examination.

Results

Total number of cases was 22 (12 women underwent conventional HyCoSy and 10 a 3D-CCI HyCoSy). The mean age of patients was 33.8 years (SD: 3.2 range: 23–40 years). Three cases (100%) of Fallopian tube obstruction were detected by 3D-CCI HyCoSy and confirmed by laparoscopic tubal chromopertubation (LTC). Four of the six cases (67%) of obstruction detected by conventional HyCoSy were confirmed by hysterosalpingography/LTC (HSG/LTC). Two cases of severe post-procedure pain were reported in women who underwent conventional HyCoSy.

Conclusion

The results of the study show that 3D-CCI HyCoSy was better to visualize the entire Fallopian tube and evaluate its patency
