Objectives: The aim of this study is to find the risk factors of fetal chromosomal aberrations in order to classify a high risk pregnancy in our prenatal care unit. Material and methods: A prospective study was carried out during one year in our clinic. 523 cases of amniocentesis was followed up and evaluated the relation with abnormal result (fetal aneuploidies) and the risk factors such as advanced maternal age (≥ 35 years old), parity, habitation, positive triple test (≥ 1/250), fetal malformation history and abnormal signs in the first and second trimester scanning. Results: The incidence of fetal aneuploidy was 3.4% (18/523 [95%CI: 2.1-5.4%]) and the trisomy 21 showed the most common in these chromosomal aberrations (67%). The younger women (< 35 years old), nulliparous, positive triple test and abnormal ultrasonographic findings (included increased nuchal translucency [≥ 2.4mm], absent nasal bone in the first trimester scanning and/or echogenic nodule in ventricular) was identified as the risk factors of fetal aneuploidies (OR was 2.3 [95%CI: 0.8-6.7], 4.0 [95%CI: 1.4-13.2], 3.3 [95%CI: 0.3-33.5] and 9.4 [95%CI: 1.1-79.2], respectively). The abnormal ultrasonographic findings found a relation significantly with abnormal chromosomes (p=0.04). Conclusion: Abnormal ultrasonographic findings in the first and second trimester were the important markers for predicting fetal aneuploidy, especially trisomy 21. [less ▲]

Objectives: This study aims to evaluate the feasibility of performing an anatomy scanned for fetal abnormalities at the time of nuchal translucency (NT) measurement in Vietnamese population Material and methods: In a prospective study, 2500 singleton pregnancies measured fetal NT and scanned structural anatomy in the first trimester; then checked fetal morphology systematically at 18-24 weeks and followed up to their delivery. According to ultrasonographic abnormalities and amniocentesis, we evaluated the detection rate of ultrasound for aneuploidy in the first and second trimester of gestation. Results: The sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound for aneuploidy was 17.2% and 99.7%, respectively. All 13 cases of fetal ultrasonographic anomalies related significantly with an increased NT (≥ 2.4mm) (p < 0.001). 30.8% of these abnormalities that included cystic hygroma, omphalocele and holoprosencephaly were detected at 11-13.6 weeks’ gestation. In the second trimester scanning, 69.2% of major structural anomalies found and the detection rate of central nervous system malformation, abnormal heart, abdominal wall defect, face anomaly and skeletal deformities were 85.7%, 100%, 66.7%, 50% and 75%, alternatively. Conclusion: Scanning of fetal anatomy at the time of NT measuring is useful to detect fetal abnormalities, especially aneuploidy in Vietnamese pregnancies. [less ▲]

Clinical use of gentamicin over prolonged periods is limited because of dose- and time-dependent nephrotoxicity. Primarily, lysosomal phospholipidosis, intracellular oxidative stress and heightened inflammation have been implicated. Hydrogen sulphide is an endogenously produced signal transduction molecule with strong anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and cytoprotective properties. In several models of inflammatory disease however, tissue damage has been associated with increased activity of cystathionine gamma-lyase, biosynthesis of hydrogen sulphide and activation of leukocytes. The aim of this study was to determine effects of inhibiting hydrogen sulphide biosynthesis by DL-propargyl glycine (an irreversible inhibitor of cystathionine gamma-lyase) on inflammation, necrosis and renal function, following treatment with gentamicin in rats. Adult female Sprague–Dawley rats were divided into six groups and treated with; physiological saline, sodium hydrosulphide, DL-propargyl glycine, gentamicin, a combination of gentamicin and sodium hydrosulphide, or gentamicin and DL-propargyl glycine respectively. Gentamicin-induced histopathological changes including inflammatory cell infiltration and tubular necrosis were attenuated by co-administering gentamicin with DL-propargyl glycine (Pb0.05 compared to saline controls and Pb0.05 compared to gentamicin only). Similarly, DL-propargyl glycine caused a significant reduction (Pb0.05) in lipid peroxidation, production of superoxide and the activation of tumour necrosis factor-alpha in gentamicin-treated animals. These data show that protective effects of DL-propargyl glycine might be related at least in part, to the reduced inflammatory responses observed in animals treated with both gentamicin and DL-propargyl glycine. Thus, enzyme systems involved in hydrogen sulphide biosynthesis may offer a viable therapeutic target in alleviating the nephrotoxic effects of gentamicin. [less ▲]
