Bilateral nonpalp undesecned testis.6 month old boy.kareotype proves male.u/s shows both testis as intra abdominal.doc suggested laproscopy.what risk?

Risk of cancer: The testicles need a lower temp than the rest of the body. For that reason they descend into the scrotal sac. When they do not descend and remain in the abdominal cavity the have a high risk of becoming cancerous. They must be "pulled down" surgically. I would ask our surgical colleagues to please address the risks of the laparoscopic procedure vs the traditional approach. ...Read more

What individual fetal measurement holds accuracy (represents true gestational age) longest in pregnancy (fl, ac, bpd, hc)?

Must use averages: I don't believe that any single measurement is most accurate throughout pregnancy. It is usually the averages that are taken. The most accurate measurements are actually in the first trimester in the way of the crown rump length in terms of predicting the estimated date of delivery. ...Read more

It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read more

26 year old female. 3 pregnancies, 1 being twins. Uterus measures at10.2 cm CC x 4.9 cm AP x 7.5 cm transverse uterus. Is this WNL?

Maybe normal: Those measurements may or may not be normal. In your case, the uterus doesn't always shrink back to a smaller size when twins are delivered. On the other hand, if uterine fibroids are small and seen on the ultrasound this would not be a normal size uterus. ...Read more
