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. ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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/. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Embryonic sarcoma of the liver, what does this mean?

Rare tumor: A very malignant tumor of the liver that appears in younger people. In contrast to the more common tumor, the hepatocellular tumor or hepatoma, the embryonal sarcoma is a primitive mesenchymal tumour of unknown aetiology associated with multiple genetic mutations. Also known as malignant mesenchymoma, mesenchymal sarcoma, primary sarcoma, undifferentiated sarcoma, surgical resection needed. ...Read more

How are embryonic stem cells and umbillical different?

Stem cells: There are three classes of stem cells: totipotent, multipotent, and pluripotent. Multipotent stem cells (umbilical cord stem cells) can give rise to a small number of different cell types. Pluripotent stem cells (embryonic stem cells) can give rise to any type of cell in the body except those needed to develop a fetus. A fertilized egg is considered totipotent, meaning that its potential is total. ...Read more

Why is there controversy with using embryonic stem cells?

Why is there controversy with using embryonic stem cells?

Good question!: As I understand it, the right-wing groups calling themselves "pro-life", have consistently opposed use of embryonic stem cells from abortuses or stored fertilized eggs from ivf and family planning centers, as an extrapolation of their stance on many issues that touch upon the definition of life. ...Read more

How come there controversy about using embryonic stem cells?

Yes: Controversy surrounds how these embryonic stem cells obtained... From living or dead donors (fetus), will growing fetuses become a big market for stem cell supplies? This is a big problem if they are not your own stem cells harvested when you were born. Some people use cord stem cells, however the risk of any genetic material good/bad (ie. Cancer, disorders) can be transmitted. ...Read more

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
