Not squeezed: Normal vaginal delivery squeezes some of the fluid in the lung spaces out during passage through the birth canal. C-sections alows that fluid to remain and thereby can cause a poor exchange of oxygen. Ttn uaually resolves on its own with supportive care. Ttn can also happen with a normal delivery but less often. ...Read more

Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?
??RDS??: I would agree more cs babies have respiratory pbs than regular delivery but the issue is ttn ( transient tachypnea of the newborn) not rds.A trip down the birth canal helps squeeze some of the lung fluid out before birth, which does not happen for cs. About 10% of cs will have to work hard to clear that fluid & may require o2 & special care in the process.It usually clears in < 48hr. ...Read more
If there is past family history of 2 deaths from bowel perforation (1 colonoscopy, 1 cdif) could there be increased risk for other family members?
Cld mild preeclampsia cause brain aneurysm formation in someone with family history or does blood pressure have to remain high for a longer period of time?
Not cause - rupture.: Preeclampsia cannot cause brain aneurysms, but can certainly make them rupture and cause massive strokes. Berry aneurysms in the brain vessels pre-date the pregnancy, but when it is complicated by pree they can leak or rupture with catastrophic consequences. The longer the preeclamptic hypertension goes untreated, the higher the risk of stroke (hemorrhagic, massive, occasionally lethal). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How much does liver damage, excessive pain medication, lupus, and previous miscarriages increase chances of a future occurrence?
Definite risk: Any miscarriage with sle increases the chance of another miscarriage. So do other pregnancy related problems. You should see a rheumatologist and a high risk obstetrician with sle experience and discuss the timing and risks of oregnancy for your individual problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.
Possible: There is some possibility of an A/O or B/O reaction with jaundice and hemolytic disease but that part of this is usually minor and easy to manage. An OB with quick hands can limit the other issue. I would try to relax and figure out what your life will be like with 3 kids running around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?
At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you get a Stroke early in age from familial hypercholesterolemia. I've had known untreated high cholesterol since age 19. History of brain lesions?
Yes: Unfortunately familial hypercholesterolemia does put you at an increased risk for stroke and heart attack, but these risks can be decreased with cholesterol-lowering drugs. I can't comment on the brain lesions without seeing them, but it's possible that they're strokes. I hope you're following with a doctor about your cholesterol and cholesterol lowering meds. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Activity C blood test level 72 (mildly low). With no symptoms are there any treatments? I was tested due to family history of clots.
Protein C: Protein C deficiency is a cause of clots. If the activity level is low it may lead to clots but without ever having one I doubt a hematologist would put you on a blood thinner for that level. There is no cure for a clotting disorder, we just keep blood thinner to prevent clots. ...Read more
Of women on birth control pills who have cardiac incidents, what percentage have secondary causes, such as smoking or a genetic predisposition?
Outstanding question: Excellent question! Let me re-phrase it: what is the risk of having any type of vascular event? It depends on exact formulation, duration of use, & risk factors. No prospective studies have been reported. Here is summary from the NIH: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK148774/. This reports odds ratios. If the risk is 1 in a million, an OR of 2 is only 2 per million. They're rare. ...Read more

Dx mild Type1 von Willebrand. No family history or symptoms prior to age30. Get petechiae daily now. Could it still be hereditary Type 1 or more likely acquired vwd? Most causes of acquired vwd are bad, so I'm concerned about doc's lack of concern.
