electrical activity and plasma concentrations of progesterone, estrogens and oxytocin during late pregnancy and parturition in the miniature pig.
But the absence of myometrial
tissue around the fetus and presence of free fluid in POD outlining the fetal head without intervening myometrium (Figure 3) ruled out these possibilities.
Tissue sections were then immunofluorescently stained to detect PGRAB followed by image analysis to determine intensity of staining in selected utero-placental compartments including luminal epithelium (LE), endometrial glands (EG), endometrial stroma (ES), endometrial blood vessels (EBV), myometrium (MYO), myometrial
blood vessels (MBV), and fetal membranes (FM, fetal placental tissues).

13] suggested the following criteria for early sonographic diagnosis of rudimentary horn pregnancy: (i) a pseudo-pattern of asymmetrical bicornuate uterus; (ii) absent visual continuity tissue surrounding the gestation sac and the uterine cervix; and (iii) presence of myometrial
tissue surrounding the gestational sac.
pinnatum were shown to induce myometrial
relaxation in vitro (Wachter et al.
Placenta percreta is characterized by the invasion of the chorionic villi through the myometrial
and serosal layer of the uterus, typically in the absence of normal decidualized endometrial stroma.
Telltale signs on ultrasound include loss of myometrial
interface, a heterogeneous "Swiss cheese--looking" appearance to the placenta, an increase in the vascularity of the placenta, and evidence of bladder invasion.
Modulation of vascular tone by nitric oxide and endothelin 1 in myometrial
resistance arteries from pregnant women at term.
Misoprostol binds to the prostaglandin receptors on the myometrial
At 100-250 mg/kg BW the extract caused a dose-dependent decrease in myometrial
and endometrial mast cell populations.
We felt that these procedures could not completely remove the myometrial
lesions or relieve the obstructions; moreover, she would likely remain with a high chance of recurrence with these therapies.
