Fetal lung fluid & urine make amniotic fluid, right? So what caused oligohydramnios?

Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc). There are too many causes to list here, ask your ob. ...Read more

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

If amniotic sac is intact during vaginal delivery or c section, Are chances of AMniotic Fluid Embolisim basically zero chance?

Yes: Actually, AFE is quite a rare event and, to a degree, independent of a patient's ruptured status. The general idea is that there is a breech and/or permeability of the of the natural blood-amniotic barriers. This allows products of pregnancy to, unaturally, enter the maternal circulation and cause catatrophic events (primarily in the lungs), culminating in death, oftentimes. ...Read more

What does large fluid collection with an air fluid level mean, in pelvis of male, ?

What does large fluid collection with an air fluid level mean, in pelvis of male, ?

Abscess: The only things that live in the male pelvis are: 1) bladder and 2) rectum. There should be no fluid collection outside of the bladder (normal), but with gas in it, usually represents an abscess. This usually represents a perforation or fistula from the rectum, or post-operative leak after rectal surgery. Depending on the cause, the treatment can be drainage through the rectum or open surgery ...Read more

Can remaining fluids from an ovarian cyst rupture affect my pregnancy ?

Can remaining  fluids from an ovarian cyst rupture affect my pregnancy ?

Very unlikely.: Once an ovarian cyst has ruptured, while it can briefly cause abdominal irritation, the fluid is rapidly reabsorbed into the circulatory system. There is some association between recurrent ovarian cysts and difficulty conceiving, but, if you're pregnant, then you're just as likely as a woman who hasn't had this prior condition to have a healthy baby. Congrats! ...Read more

What does dilated fetal kidneys with normal amniotic fluid mean for a second trimester fetus?

What does dilated fetal kidneys with normal amniotic fluid mean for  a second trimester fetus?

No big deal.: Detecting renal problems by fetal ultrasound is very accurate and efficient because it can prevent serious complications postnatally. Fetal renal pyelectasis or even hydronephrosis is nothing to worry about, provided the amniotic fluid is monitored and remains normal. The neonatology team should be notified at birth to institute appropriate follow-up for the newborn; monthly ultrasounds are needed. ...Read more

35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder  with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal ..is there any problem ,prior tiffa normal .

Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more
