Michael Feichtinger et al.
In pregnancy, obesity is associated with increased maternal morbidity and fetal morbidity and mortality. Within the past decade, bariatric surgery has evolved to be the most effective treatment for morbid obesity. The aim of this study was to investigate intrauterine growth tendencies of fetuses conceived after gastric bypass surgery and compare them to a BMI-matched control group. As a primary outcome measure, trajectories of fetal anthropometry (including abdominal circumference, head circumference, femur length) determined by ultrasound has been evaluated.

Diagnostic ultrasound has a crucial importance in clinical settings, especially in intensive care medicine where bedside ultrasound has become indispensable. Medical students as well as residents therefore have a strong interest in learning this useful skill. Since staff resources are limited, more and more universities are using student tutors in a peer-assisted learning concept (PAL) to teach medical students early in their training. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether PAL is a suitable method for teaching complex skills like abdominal ultrasound and to evaluate whether students do achieve adequate longterm knowledge retention after peer-assisted teaching.
