Prenatal ultrasonographic assessment of the ductus arteriosus: a review

Obstetrics and Gynecology
D M Sherer, M Y Divon

Abstract

To review current data pertaining to prenatal ultrasonography of the ductus arteriosus. We reviewed manuscripts published in the English language regarding prenatal ultrasonography and the fetal ductus arteriosus obtained from a MEDLINE search for 1966 onward. Additional sources were identified through cross-referencing. Data regarding morphology, physiology, pathophysiology of fetal disease, and hemodynamic changes after administration of various maternal medications and structural congenital anomalies of the ductus arteriosus were selected. Knowledge of the function of the ductus arteriosus in both normal and abnormal fetal conditions is enhanced by prenatal ultrasonographic findings. Detailed analyses of ductus arteriosus hemodynamics are indicated in well-defined medical conditions, including maternal medication and established structural or functional fetal cardiac disease. The fetal ductus arteriosus is a vascular structure of major functional importance. Knowledge of physiologic hemodynamic changes of blood flow in this vessel obtained by prenatal ultrasonography in conjunction with increasing gestational age, maternal medication, fetal growth restriction, as well as the detection of structural anomalies, may assist in c...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
