Ultrasound Shows Absence Of Embryonic Pole (Overview)

Presence of an embryonic pole on an ultrasound scan is a sign of an early pregnancy. Absence of a embryonic pole may mean the pregnancy failed (a repeat scan may be done).

At an ultrasound OB said there was some blood inside the embryonic sac but baby was still growing it should be ok. 10weeks what could happen? Causes?

Subchorionic hematom: It sounds like your doctor is describing a subchorionic hematoma -- think of it like a bruise located behind the placenta. It does increase the risk of miscarriage but the vast majority of cases do fine. The clot/bruise resolves over time.

I'm on 6wks and 4days of pregnancy. Having spotting/bleeding. Done with ultrasound 5days ago, the result is collapse sac and no embryonic. Mean?

Doctor visit: In a normal pregnancy one expects to see a fetal pole with a heart beat by 6-7 weeks gestation. If your sonogram shows a collapsed sac then this may indicate the pregnancy is not progressing normally. It will be important to have your doctor evaluate you and determine if a miscarriage has occurred.

I'm 6 wks pregnant. Having spotting for 4 days. Done ultrasound 4 days ago. The result is collapse sac and no embryonic. Am I candidate?

Can't answer this: As phrased. Candidate for what? You really need to ask the person who ordered the study what these findings mean and what are your options. Good luck!

I am 9 weeks pregnant, my ultrasound reveals retroverted uterus, no embryonic development. My doctor said it's blighted ovum. Is it 100% accurate?

I am 9 weeks pregnant, my ultrasound reveals retroverted uterus, no embryonic development. My doctor said it's blighted ovum. Is it 100% accurate?

Likely correct: If the ultrasound was performed with the endovaginal probe, a viable pregnancy would easily be confirmed. The absence of embryonic development is either from blighted ovum or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy.

What're embryonic stem cells?

What're embryonic stem cells?

Perhaps our future.: A human embryo consists of 50-150 embryonic stem cells 4–5 days after fertilization, and those few cells eventually differentiate into all of the different specialized cells that compose the entire human body. Since those stem cells can potentially be anything they want to be, the potential for curing multitudes of human disease, using them, is enormous.

In embryonic aging by counting the number of somites present, what modality is used to visualize the somites?

In embryonic aging by counting the number of somites present, what modality is used to visualize the somites?

Experimental vs.: Clinical. Examination of fetus for somites is an experiment technique and is not used in clinical practice. Fetal age is assessed by the time since last menstrual period, size of fetus as determined by ultrasound and in late pregnancy by testing for lung maturity.

What are human embryonic stem cells used for?

What are human embryonic stem cells used for?

A this poitnt: Human embryonic stem cells are being studied to define stem cell biology and in animal models to look at tissue and organ repair. This would be considered preclincial at this point, whcih is to say he's are not being used to treat human disease.

Embryonic and adult stem cells, what are these?

Embryonic and adult stem cells, what are these?

Stem Cells: Check out regenexx. Com for more info. Basically adult stem cells are usually from your own blood, fat or bone marrow. Embryonic stem cells are from fetal tissue and umbilical cord blood and tissue but are not your own unless you had this harvested when you were born.

Could embryonic stemcells give my pierced clitoris sensation?

Could embryonic stemcells give my pierced clitoris sensation?

Unlikely!: We have not achieved nerve regeneration from stem cells at this point. There are 1000s of men with nerves damaged by prostate surgery wishing for the same thing. Sorry!

What differentiates embryonic stem cells from other stem cells?

What differentiates embryonic stem cells from other stem cells?

Origin: Embryonic stem cells are derived from fertilized eggs created to help couples who have difficulty conceiving. This is "murder" according to some religionists. Other stem cells come from other sources. However, since the striking success of embryonic stem cells in early studies on wet macular degeneration, even the conservative presidential candidate no longer seems opposed to their use.

Besides embryonic and adult what are other types of stem cells?

Induced Pluripotent: Another type of stem cells is called induced pluripotent stem cells, or ips. These are adult stem cells that have been genetically altered to be more like embryonic stem cells. You can read more about the difference between the three types of stem cells at my blog here: http://www. Cosmeticsurg. Net/blog/2011/09/16/stem-cell-types/.

Is it possible to take embryonic stem cells and infuse them into damaged areas and regenerate?

Is it possible to take embryonic stem cells and infuse them into damaged areas and regenerate?

In research now: Use of adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently in clinical trial in us/internationally. Trend is toward use of fat derived mscs, havested by liposuction, isolated and concentrated in tissue culture. Early reports suggest significant improvement in neurological, autoimmune and organ functions. Many more mscs in fat than bone marrow making ad-msc the center of most research now.

Embryonic stem cell uses?

Embryonic stem cell: Embryonic stem cell research has not shown to be as effective as adult stem cells and induced pluripotent cells. In 2009, NIH called embryonic stem cells “obsolete" as can use adult stem cells with better results. See eyedoc2020@blogspot. Com for more info.

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
