In this study +the purpose to improve diagnostic precision in preclinical forms of late toxemia, the central and peripheral circulation and hemostasis have been evaluated in women during their four day-stay visits scheduled for a pregnancy. Transition of normal pregnancy to "++pre-toxemic" was most commonly seen in the second trimester. Platelet counts and levels of fibrinogen and beta-fibrinogen proved to have the highest predictive value. A decision-making rule was designed for categorization of pregnancies into normal and "++pre-toxemic" and was found to have a 90% efficiency.
The structure of the populations in Korenovsk and Ust-Labinsk districts--sexual, age, family and migrant is described Reproduction is low in these populations. The after-reproduction age class in rural populations prevailed, which affects the ratio of recessive and dominant forms in hereditary pathology of these populations. Family planning in towns accounts for small size of the families and decrease of the role of natural selection. Gametic and endogamy indexes for these populations indicate that intensive migrant processes take place in populations studied, as shown by the level of recessive pathology. The results obtained can be used in the medical-genetic studies for this territory.
Statistical data on the morbidity of malignant tumors to be treated by interstitial radiotherapy were used to calculate the requirements in radiosurgery over the country, including the requisite number of radiological and "active" bed for the management of patients with malignant tumors of the tongue and oral mucosa. Several variants of the organization of radiosurgery service in cancer institutions were analyzed.
This report concerns the development of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in the Nordic countries from the start of 1981 to January 1, 1988. All the 24 clinics in the Nordic countries which treat infertile couples with IVF participated in the study. The number of IVF clinics in the Nordic countries has increased from four in 1981 to 24 in 1987. In the same period, the number of people who spent some of their professional time as a part of an IVF team increased from 17 to 150. The majority of the clinics (19) based their activity mainly on governmental funding, while five of the clinics were private. During the period from 1981 to 1987, the Nordic clinic changed their methods of oocyte retrieval. In 1981, all oocyte retrievals were done using laparoscopy. Transvesical, ultrasound-guided follicular punctures domainated in 1985 and transvaginal ultrasound-guided punctures were used in 81.5% of the retrievals in 1987. A total of 852 pregnancies were reported. Of these, 313 (36.8%) were miscarriages, including 66 (7.7%) ectopic pregnancies. At January 1, 1988, 433 babies had been born, including 48 sets of twins, 14 sets of triplets and two sets of quadruplets. This gave a multiple birth rate of 18.2%. Premature births (less than 36 weeks of gestation) were reported in 14.6% of the births. Five babies (1.1%) died in the neonatal period and five (1.1%) were born with various types of malformation. One hundred and eight-eight pregnancies were in progress at January 1, 1988.
