Variation in repeat caesarean section complication rates among 3 hospitals in northern Jordan
AbstractWe investigated the complication rates of repeat caesarean deliveries in 3 hospitals [national health, military, university] in Irbid by examining the obstetric records of 989 women from 1 December 1999 to 30 March 2004. There was a statistically significant difference between the number of previous caesarean sections and hospital. In total, 579 [58.5%] patients underwent elective caesarean section. There were statistically significant differences between hospitals for "failure to progress in labour" and "other" indications for caesarean section. After adjusting for the number of caesarean sections, regression analysis revealed that women from the military and university hospitals were more likely to have placenta praevia. There were no statistically significant differences between hospitals as regards post- operative complications

Carrier detection of phenylketonuria in Iranian families by variable number tandem-repeat polymorphism analysis Hosseini Mazinani, S.M.; Koochmeshgi, J.; Khazaee Koohpar, Z.; Hosein Pur Nobari, N.; Seifati, S.M. (2008)This study of Iranian families assessed the usefulness of carrier detection of phenylketonuria by variable number tandem-repeat [VNTR] polymorphism analysis. We studied 171 people [45 unrelated PKU subjects, and their parents and unaffected siblings]. Of 342 chromosomes [131 non-PKU and 211 PKU], 5 VNTR alleles were identified. This VNTR system would yield a polymorphism information content of 66%, comparable to that in Europeans and higher than in Chinese. Carrier detection by segregation analysis of VNTR was informative in 89.5% of siblings. ...
