OBJECTIVES: Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP) is frequent, affecting up to 70-85% of pregnant women. However, severity of NVP especially in clinical practice is often uncertainly assessed and thus both under- and overdiagnosing is probable. Furthermore, risk factors for NVP, although recognized, are not well established. The aim of our study was to evaluate the severity of NVP with a structured questionnaire and evaluate associative risk factors. STUDY DESIGN: Sample of 2411 women were recruited from maternity health care clinics...

AIM: Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide. Most previous studies focused on individual nutrients or foods rather than overall dietary patterns. We aimed to assess the association between major dietary patterns and breast cancer risk. METHOD: In a hospital-based case-control study, 134 women diagnosed as breast cancer and 267 controls were recruited from referral hospitals in Tehran, Iran. Dietary intakes were evaluated by using a validated 168-item food frequency questionnaire...

Prenatal carrier screening has expanded to include a large number of genes offered to all couples considering pregnancy or with an ongoing pregnancy. Expanded carrier screening refers to identification of carriers of single-gene disorders outside of traditional screening guidelines. Expanded carrier screening panels include numerous autosomal recessive and X-linked genetic conditions, including those with a very low carrier frequency, as well as those with mild or incompletely penetrant phenotype. Therefore, the clinical utility of these panels is still subject of debate...

OBJECTIVES: While the rate of obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASIS) is increasing, there is a lack of evidence on how best to advise women on mode of delivery (MOD) afterwards. The objectives of this study were to assess the clinical value of bowel symptoms, endoanal ultrasound and anorectal manometry in the management of pregnancies after an OASIS and evaluate the performance of different algorithms. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data in a university hospital perineal clinic...

BACKGROUND: A low fetal cerebroplacental ratio (CPR) and nulliparity have independently been shown to be associated with adverse obstetric and perinatal outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of parity on the CPR and investigate the utility of a CPR threshold of <10th centile for predicting adverse outcomes. We hypothesised that nulliparous women would have a lower CPR than multiparous women, impacting the diagnostic performance of the <10th centile threshold...

OBJECTIVE: To assess obstetric and aortic outcomes in women with Marfan Syndrome according to aortic root diameter, in view of recommendations for caesarean delivery when the aortic root diameter is ≥40 mm in the 2010 American guidelines versus >45 mm in the 2011 European guidelines. STUDY DESIGN: In this retrospective cohort study conducted at Sainte-Justine Mother and Child Tertiary Hospital, 27 pregnancies in 20 women with Marfan Syndrome as defined by the international criteria, were followed prospectively between 1994 and 2017, after excluding women with prior aortic surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Maternal thrombophilia is a risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes. The aim of this study was to elucidate the controversial role of fetal and paternal thrombophilia in the development of severe placenta-mediated pregnancy complications. STUDY DESIGN: The study group comprised 126 mothers, 72 fetuses and 58 fathers. 111 mothers, 50 fetuses and 91 fathers acted as controls. 106 couples were selected to study the thrombophilias of paternal inheritance, 58 from the study group and 48 from the control group...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to determine whether daily vaginal progesterone use for the prevention of preterm birth has an effect on the incidence of abnormal glucose challenge test or gestational diabetes. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study in a large referral center. Women with cervical length ≤ 25 mm were given 200 mg vaginal micronized progesterone capsules daily at bed time until 36 weeks` gestation or delivery. Each progesterone-treated woman was matched randomly with three untreated controls...

OBJECTIVE: To reappraise the anatomic distribution of endometriosis lesions in cases with Superficial Implants (SI), Ovarian Endometrioma (OMA) and Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis (DIE). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective observational study was operated between January 1989 to June 2009. A total of 1333 consecutive patients with a laparoscopic diagnosis of endometriosis, were extracted from our database. Due to missing data or repeated operations, 232 patients were excluded from the study...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate a dual-phase protocol for vaginal ablative Erbium:YAG laser treatment in pelvic floor medicine. STUDY DESIGN: Data from consecutive patients undergoing vaginal Erbium:YAG laser for first-degree pelvic floor complaints at a certified university urogynecological unit were analyzed. Fractional ablative and thermal treatment with adjustable pulse duration, fluence, and pulse interval was performed in single ten-minute treatment course. Followed up interval was 6 weeks including interviews on expectations, goal setting, goal achievement, and satisfaction (EGGS), vaginal pH, and determination of the Gloria-Bachmann-Index (VHI)...

OBJECTIVES: Maternal mortality is rare in high-resource settings. This hampers studies of the association between maternal mortality and mode of birth, although this topic remains of importance, given the changing patterns in mode of birth with increasing cesarean section rates in most countries. Purpose of this study was to examine incidence of cesarean section-related maternal mortality in the Netherlands and association of surgery with the chain of morbid events leading to death. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a retrospective cohort study using the Confidential Enquiry into Maternal Deaths, including all 2,684,946 maternities in the Netherlands between January 1st, 1999, and December 31st, 2013, registered in the Dutch Perinatal Registry...
