Induction of labor represents initiation of uterine contractions before their spontaneous onset. The aim of the study was to establish the role of Bishop score in prediction of labor induction in routine clinical work. The study was a prospective, blind, observational one. All patients had a vaginal examination prior to induction, during which Bish...
Article
The aim of this prospective, blind, observational study was to estimate the role of transvaginal ultrasound examination of the uterine cervix in prediction of labour induction outcome in order to adequately chose patients that will have high chance for labour induction. One hundred patients scheduled for induction of labour had a transvaginal ultra...

Fibronectin is a glycoprotein produced by different types of cells. It can be divided into two main groups--soluble fibronectin, found in human plasma and other body fluids (amniotic fluid) and tissue fibronectin, found in basal membrane and connective tissue between endothelial cells (2). There are three subtypes--plasmatic, cellular and onco-feta...

Introduction: The term neural tube defects (NTD) stands for anencephaly, iniencephaly, cephalocoele and spina-bifida. The cause of these anomalies is failure of brain spinal cord to properly develop, together with their protective shield of skull and spine, around the 4th gestational week. The prevalence of NTD in continental Europe is 11.2 10,000...

... Of the postoperative complications, one patient had a wound dehiscence, which healed per secundam with antibiotics and disinfectants, while one patient had a recurrence 15 months after surgery and radiation therapy with a lethal outcome due to dissemination of the disease. These results are similar to the previously published results of the Clinical Centre of Vojvodina [11,20,21] at the Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad; there were 175 women with cervical cancer, 79.4% of patients were in FIGO I stage, the most common type was squamous cell carcinoma in 76.6% of operated patients, while 54.8% patients had a well-differentiated stage I tumor. During surgery, 32 lymph nodes were removed on average, the average blood loss was 300 ml, and various intra and postoperative complications were observed in 24.5% of patients [12]. ...
... Higher concentration of Cu in maternal blood is a result of Cu binding by ceruloplasmin in the placenta, and due to the size of the molecule it is not transferred through the placental barrier. The activity of this enzyme and Cu increases as pregnancy progresses [25,43,45]. ...
... Druga mogućnost je da se sačeka spontano započinjanje porođaja, ali je upotreba regionalne anestezije u ovim slučajevima kontraindikovana 24 h posle poslednje terapijske doze NMH [40]. Carski rez se savetuje samo iz akušerskih indikacija [41]. Terapija NMH se nastavlja 6 h po završetku porođaja, u slučajevima kada je krvarenje u fiziološkim granicama. ...
... 6 Recently, several previous studies have analyzed the cervical length, by vaginal sonography, as a variable that predicts the success of induction. 4,5,[7][8][9][10] Some recent studies compare the Bishop score with vaginal sonographically cervical length, but we have not found any publication with an integrated analysis of the different variables that could have an influence on the success of inductions. ...

... Copper contributes to the production of hemoglobin and contributes to metabolism because it allows many critical enzymes to function properly (Osredkar J and Sustar N, 2011;Harris E,2001). It also acts as a pro-oxidant and an antioxidant, therefore copper has a role in reducing the damage of free radicals that are generated naturally in the body by sweeping or neutralizing free radicals and thus reduce the damage of free radicals on the walls of cells (Bonham M et al.,2002;Davis C,2003); increased serum level of Cu may be explained to its form of serum which is formed in response to inflammation associated with the disease (Mitreski A et al., 2003;Rajeswari S and Swaminathan S, 2014). Iron (Fe) is an primary transition metal required for the synthesis of two important functional proteins such as hemoglobin and myoglobin, which are involved in the transport of molecular oxygen during respiration (Ganz T and Nemeth E, 2006). ...
