Severe obstetric complications as a manifestation of thrombotic microangiopathy

Makatsaria A.D., Akinshina S.V., Bitsadze V.O., Andreeva M.D.


Thrombotic microangiopathy is one of the most serious thrombotic complications characterized by microvascular thrombosis in various organs and accompanied by thrombocytopenia and hemolytic anemia. The term thrombotic microangiopathy has incorporated several nosology, which are characterized by different mechanisms of microvascular thrombosis. Currently thrombotic microangiopathy include thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, HELLP-syndrome. Pregnancy presents one of the key triggers to the development of thrombotic microangiopathy. This fact gives us a significant opportunity to study the pathogenesis of thrombotic microangiopathy in the context of the physiological changes of hemostasis during pregnancy. At the same time the discovery of molecular mechanisms of thrombotic microangiopathy allows for a new research on the field of pathogenesis of thrombotic complications associated with pregnancy, as well as the pathogenesis of so-called placental obstetric complications, including severe preeclampsia, premature detachment of normally situated placenta, septic shock.

Hyperhomocysteinemia in miscarriage: biochemical and genetic aspects

Bespalova O.N.


Elevated levels of homocysteine in the blood is an important marker of the occurrence of various obstetric pathology. As a result of hyperhomocysteinemia impairs processes of microcirculation in the placenta. This in turn can lead to defects of implantation resulting in miscarriage. One of the factors contributing to the increase in the level of homocysteine in the blood is a hereditary predisposition. The purpose of this study is to analyze the influence of gender, age, number of spontaneous miscarriages, the genotype of MTHFR and MTRR genes with folate cycle homocysteine in the blood, the couple with miscarriages.

Role of adjuvant hormonal therapy in treatment of endometriosis-assosiated infertility

Gerkulov D.A.


Background. In vitro fertilization (IVF) represents the most efficient means of overcoming endometriosis-related infertility. Objective. To investigate the outcomes of in vitro fertilization cycles after controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in patience operated for endometrioma after different adjuvant hormonal therapy. Material and methods. 144 patients with endometriosis-associated infertility undergoing IVF were divided into three groups: GnRH agonist administration; dienogest 2 mg daily administration; women without adjuvant therapy. Results. Сlinical pregnancy rates were 2,5 times higher (44,7 and 16,7 % respectively; p = 0,01) and live birth rate was 3 times higher (36,8 и 11,1 % respectively; p = 0,01) in dienogest administration group before IVF/ICSI cycle in comparison with no adjuvant therapy groups, respectively.

Zubzhitskaya L.B., Shapovalova E.A., Arzhanova O.N., Dymarskaya Y.R., Lavrova O.V., Semenova T.V., Stolpner E.G.


The aim was to study the peculiarities of the placental status of women under the influence of exogenous and endogenous factors. We performed immunohistochemical, histological and immunomorphological study of 384 samples of placenta of women with the most common conditions (asthma, smoking, metabolic syndrome and obesity). We studied the expression of immunohistochemical markers, that indicate the presence of immune inflammation in placenta - CD31, CD35, CD57, CD83, alpha-amylase (α-Amyl) and melatonin receptor 1B (Rc-M-1B), identified C3 complement fraction, fibrinogen, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IgA, IgM, IgG. The largest number of immune deposits, fixed in the placenta that damage the the placental barrier (endothelium of vessels of chorionic villi and basal membrane of syncytiotrophoblast) were found in cases of moderate and severe asthma, in cases of who smoked throughout the pregnancy and was more common in cases with metabolic syndrome, while compared with obesity group. We had shown that various antigenic factors influencing on the pregnant woman revealed a similar pathogenetic impact of the pathogenic immune complex (PIC) on the membrane structures of the placenta. Destruction of the membrane structures of placental barrier at the areas of PIC leads to dystrophic and necrotic lesions of the placenta and impaired immune homeostasis, development of immunopathological process and placental insufficiency, which correlates with pregnancy and labour complications, and may be predictors of the possible development of allergic diseases in childhood.

Enterococci and their role in perinatal pathology

Oganyan K.A., Arzhanova O.N., Zatsiorskaya S.L., Savicheva A.M.


Enterococcus are opportunistic bacteria and are members of the normal microflora of the gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals. The prevalence of enterococcal infections in pregnant women is approximately 28 %. Enterococcus, colonizing the urogenital tract pregnant women mostly do not show pathogenic effect, however, it is known that they can lead to the development of such complications of pregnancy as threatened preterm labor, placental insufficiency, hypotrophy of the fetus. Of complications in childbirth most common in premature labor, untimely discharge of amniotic fluid, fetal hypoxia. According to the literature cause of neonatal bacteremia and sepsis in 10 % of cases are enterococcus. Thus, for the prevention of complications of pregnancy, delivery and perinatal outcomes in the allocation of Enterococcus urogenital tract to undergo antibacterial therapy, given the sensitivity to antibiotics.

Features of oxidative modification of proteins and erythrocyte functional state in pregnancy complicated by placental insufficiency

Shevelkova A.A., Aylamazyan E.K., Evsyukova I.I.


Protein oxidation intensity and reduced thiols level were studied in comparison with erythrocyte functional state in pregnancy complicated by placental insufficiency. 31 women with placental insufficiency, 41 healthy pregnant and 37 healthy nonpregnant women were included. Induced protein oxidation intensity and reduced thiols level were shown to be decreased in pregnancy complicated by placental insufficiency. Erythrocyte functional state was also worsened. It correlated with protein oxidation intensity and reduced thiols level. So protein oxidation intensity, reduced thiols level and erythrocyte functional state were shown to be indicators of placental insufficiency and can be used to identify this pathology and to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.

Kapustin R.V., Arzhanova O.N., Bespalova O.N., Pakin V.S., Kiselev A.G.


Objective: on the basis of a systematic review, clarify the role of overweight and obesity as a predictor of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Materials and methods: an analysis of the literature data of the leading bibliographic sources - MEDLINE, Cochrane col., EMBASE. To evaluate the body mass index and standards of weight gain during pregnancy used the WHO guidelines and criteria of the Institute of Medicine (2009). The frequency and the odds ratio (OR) of developing GDM was estimated separately for each of the three groups in BMI. Results: A systematic review included 23 different design studies involving 740 510 women. It was found that the odds ratio of the risk of GDM in a group of pregnant women with excess weight is doubled - 2.22 (95 % CI 1.72 - 3.64), and almost four in obesity - 3.88 (95 % CI 2.97 - 5.32). The incidence of GDM in a group of pregnant women with normal body mass index - 3.77 % in the group with excess body weight - 6.59 %, in the group with obesity - 9.88 %. Conclusions: The obtained strong evidence of a direct connection between the linear increase in maternal BMI and the risk of developing gestational diabetes. Pregnant women with excess weight and obesity are at high risk for carbohydrate disorders during pregnancy.
