Uterine perforation caused by intrauterine devices: clinical course and treatment

STUDY QUESTIONS What are the symptoms of uterine perforation caused by modern copper intrauterine devices (Cu-IUDs) and the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS); how is perforation detected and what are the findings in abdominal surgery?

One- and two-day dosing intervals between mifepristone and misoprostol in second trimester medical termination of pregnancy—a randomized trial

BACKGROUND The recommended time interval between mifepristone and misoprostol in medical second trimester termination of pregnancy (TOP) has been 36–48 h. However, a more flexible interval would be of value. The aim of this investigation was to compare one- and two-day intervals in second trimester medical TOP. The main outcome measures were induction-to-abortion time and the rate ...

Intrauterine contraception: incidence and factors associated with uterine perforation—a population-based study

STUDY QUESTION What are the incidence and factors associated with uterine perforation by modern copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD) and the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS)?

Free radical scavenging and formation by multi-walled carbon nanotubes in cell free conditions and in human bronchial epithelial cells

Background Certain multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) have been shown to elicit asbestos-like toxicological effects. To reduce needs for risk assessment it has been suggested that the physicochemical characteristics or reactivity of nanomaterials could be used to predict their hazard. Fibre-shape and ability to generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) are important indicators of ...

Can the outcome of the next pregnancy be predicted at the time of induced abortion?

BACKGROUND Factors predicting the outcome of the next pregnancy following termination of pregnancy (TOP) are poorly known. METHODS A cohort of 1269 women undergoing medical TOP between 2000 and 2002 were followed up until the next pregnancy or until the end of 2006, using registers of induced abortion, births and hospital discharges. Factors associated with repeat TOP, delivery and ...

Immediate adverse events after second trimester medical termination of pregnancy: results of a nationwide registry study

BACKGROUND Increasing gestational age is associated with an increased risk of complications in studies assessing surgical termination of pregnancy (TOP). Medical TOP is widely used during the second trimester and little is known about the frequency of complications. This epidemiological study was undertaken to assess the frequency of adverse events following the second trimester ...
