Gluteal abscesses and fistula are rare complications after release of sacrospinous fixation sutures. The entire suture should be removed to prevent complications. Sacrospinous fixation (SSF) is a safe and effective procedure for the treatment of uterovaginal prolapse. The present report describes an abnormal complication of a gluteal abscess and fistula after release of SSF sutures. The patient provided written informed consent.

OBJECTIVE: To identify risk factors associated with treatment failure among women with cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP). METHODS: In a retrospective study, the medical records of patients with CSP treated at National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan, from 1994 to 2015 were reviewed. The women were managed primarily with hysterotomy, evacuation, or methotrexate. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis and logistic regression analysis were used to evaluate the factors associated with treatment failure...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the accuracy of various sonographic estimation of fetal weight (sEFW) formulas for breech-presenting fetuses. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of sEFW performed within 3 days of delivery in a tertiary medical center in Israel between July 2007 and December 2014 was conducted. Breech-presenting singleton fetuses were matched by sex and birth weight to vertex-presenting fetuses. sEFW was calculated using 21 formulas. Systematic and random errors, proportion of estimates (POE) within 10% of actual birth weight, and reliability analysis were used to compare sonographic accuracy...

In addition to common trisomies, the inclusion of sex chromosomes and atypical autosomal anomalies in non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPTs) is becoming increasingly common; this is the result of limited screening alternatives that can identify them [1]. It has been recommended that healthcare practitioners understand patient preferences thoroughly [1], and that, given the complexity of NIPTs, patients be given the option to accept or reject this additional information [2, 3]. However, how much information patients want from NIPTs in a real-life clinical setting remains unknown...

Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) is a rare disease with an estimated incidence of 1 case per 1 million people per year [1]. A 24 year-old woman (G2 P0 A1 ) at 37(+3) weeks of pregnancy presented at the study institution reporting a 2-week unilateral headache on the left side, worsening nausea, and 1 day of progressively worsening left eye diplopia and photophobia. No significant medical or surgical history was reported, and the index pregnancy had been uncomplicated with the exception of some first-trimester bleeding that resulted in the patient being prescribed vaginal progesterone as part of a clinical trial...
