- PublicationMetadata onlyPrenatal Sonographic Detection of Monochorionic Twins with Bipartite Placenta(2020-02-10T04:00:00Z) KÜTÜK, MEHMET SERDAR; TAKMAZ, TAHA; Bayram, Arslan; Ozturk, Sule; KÜTÜK, MEHMET SERDAR; TAKMAZ, TAHABackground: Determination of placentation and amnionicity is important for antenatal and intrapartum management in twin gestations. We present an typical monozygotic twin placenta and underscore the sonographic features and diagnostic pitfalls that may interfere with antenatal diagnosis. Case report: A 35-year-old G4P2 with a spontaneous pregnancy applied for routine second trimester anomaly screening. Upon prenatal ultrasonography at 20 weeks, an anatomically normal, same sex twin pregnancy was detected. A thin dividing membrane and a T-sign suggestive of a monochorionic diamniotic pregnancy were visualized. Antenatal follow-up was uneventful. Cesarean delivery was performed at 37 week. Postpartum examination revealed two distinct placental discs connected with each other through membranes. Microscopic examination of the membranes supported monochorionicity. Short Tandem Repeat Profile Analysis revealed identical pattern and confirmed monozygosity. Conclusion: Two separate placentas with a T-sign in same-sex twins should raise the suspicion of monozygosity, and should be followed accordingly.
- PublicationMetadata onlyIncidence and outcomes of eclampsia: a single-center 30-year study(2019-04-01T00:00:00Z) Uludag, Semih Zeki; Karasu, AYŞE FİLİZ; KÜTÜK, MEHMET SERDAR; TAKMAZ, TAHA; GÖKMEN KARASU, AYŞE FİLİZ; KÜTÜK, MEHMET SERDAR; TAKMAZ, TAHAObjective: We aimed to determine the incidence of eclampsia at Erciyes University Hospital which is a tertiary referral center situated at central Anatolia. Additionally, we investigated eclampsia-associated maternal and perinatal outcomes for the 30-year study period. Methods: A retrospective review was performed for all women who were diagnosed with eclampsia and admitted to the Erciyes University Medical School, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology from January 1985 to December 2015. Improvement in management gained over time was determined by comparing the results of the years 2005-2015 with data which were already published from years 1985-1999 and 2000-2004. Results: Eclampsia prevalence was 289/46,928 (% 0.61). Maternal age at the time of diagnosis did not differ statistically; however, gestational age at diagnosis and birth weight decreased significantly throughout the years (p < 0.005). The perinatal mortality rate showed a slight decrease throughout the years (p = 0.238). Maternal mortality rate also decreased throughout the years; it was 1.7% in 2005-2009 and 0 % in 2010-2015 (p = 0.246). Conclusion: The prevalence of eclampsia cases has decreased over the years. Maternal mortality attributed to eclampsia has also declined. The early diagnosis and treatment of eclampsia have resulted in the increase of premature deliveries. The perinatal mortality rate showed a slight decrease throughout the years (p = 0.238); however, it is not at a desirable rate compared to developed countries.
