37 Varner, Michael W.Cerebral vasculopathies masquerading as eclampsia.Obstetricians know that preeclampsia-eclampsia is a syndrome and is a final common pathway for multiple causes. It is also possible that other conditions, not always directly related to pregnancy, can mimic preeclampsia-eclampsia. One such entity is cerebral vasculopathy, an entity characterized b...Cerebrovascular Disorders; Eclampsia; Puerperal Disorders2006-02
38 Varner, Michael W.Abnormal pregnancy sonogram: selective indication for fetal karyotype.The inability to make a definitive diagnosis in the fetus with a sonographically identified abnormality often results in parental and physician uncertainty. An antenatal chromosome evaluation could resolve this uncertainty. Forty-one fetuses with an abnormal ultrasound examination were tested for ka...Chromosome Disorders; Pregnancy; Karyotyping; Abnormalities; Amniocentesis1987-01
39 Varner, Michael W.Association of obesity with pulmonary and nonpulmonary complications of pregnancy in asthmatic women.OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether maternal obesity is associated with pulmonary and nonpulmonary pregnancy complications in asthmatic women.
