OBJECTIVE: To characterize the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) contraindicated home births and the women who are receiving these births in hopes of identifying venues for intervention. METHODS: The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) birth certificate records from 1990 to 2015 were used. "Planned home births" were defined as those births in which birthplace was coded as "residence" and birth attendant was coded as "certified nurse midwife (CNM)" or "other midwife"...

INTRODUCTION: Resistin is a proinflammatory hormone recently proposed as a sepsis biomarker. Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic and prognostic values of this marker in neonatal sepsis. METHODS: This is a prospective observational study that includes 60 term and late preterm neonates with proven and possible sepsis besides 30 healthy controls. Resistin and other biomarkers, like C-reactive protein (CRP), were measured within 2 h of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission...

AIM: To develop a supportive computerized prediction system for the route of delivery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study consisted of 2127, 3548 and 1723 deliveries for the years 1976, 1986 and 1996, respectively. We have developed a supervised artificial neural network (ANN) for predicting the delivery route. We have used a back-propagation learning algorithm for this purpose. The data used for the computerized system were obtained during the admission of the patients to the delivery room at the beginning of the first stage of labor after pelvic examination and examination/evaluation of the mother and fetus...

PURPOSE: To evaluate whether intraoperative ultrasound-guided detection and resection of the uterine scar during repeat/second cesarean can reduce the number of scars and improve uterine scar architecture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective controlled clinical intervention trial was performed with the following groups: control group 1 (CS1-G): first cesarean; control group 2 (CS2-G): second cesarean utilizing the usual procedure and intervention group (Int-G): repeat/second cesarean with intervention...

OBJECTIVE: To review the obstetric impact and natural history of anencephalic pregnancies beyond the age of viability. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review of all cases with a prenatal diagnosis of anencephaly who delivered after 24 weeks' gestation during the period 1990 until 2016. Obstetric outcomes including mode of delivery, live births, shoulder dystocia, antepartum haemorrhage (APH), postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) and uterine rupture were studied. RESULTS: A total of 42 cases were studied...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and neonatal respiratory-related outcomes among women who underwent an elective cesarean section (CS). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s 2009-2013 period linked birth/infant death dataset. Women who had elective CSs at term were categorized by their pre-pregnancy BMI as normal, overweight, obese or morbidly obese...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the adrenal gland size of fetal growth restricted (FGR) and normal control fetuses. STUDY DESIGN: In this prospective study the adrenal gland size of 63 FGR fetuses and 343 normal controls was measured between 20 and 41 weeks of gestation. The total width and the medulla width were measured in a new standardized transversal plane. The cortex width and a calculated ratio of the total and medulla width (adrenal gland ratio) were compared between both groups...

OBJECTIVE: Tributyltin (TBT) is a persistent pollutant but its effects on placental function are poorly understood as are its possible interactions with infection. We hypothesized that TBT alters the production of sex hormones and biomarkers for inflammation and neurodevelopment in an infection-dependent manner. METHODS: Placental explant cultures were treated with 0-5000 nM TBT in the presence and absence of Escherichia coli. A conditioned medium was harvested and concentrations of steroids (progesterone, P4; testosterone, T and estradiol, E2) as well as biomarkers of inflammation [interleukin (IL)-1β (IL-1β), tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α), IL-10, IL-6, soluble glycoprotein 130 (sgp-130) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1)], oxidative stress [8-iso-prostaglandin (8-IsoP)] and neurodevelopment [brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)] were quantified...

OBJECTIVE: It is well known that a short cervix at mid-pregnancy is a risk factor for spontaneous preterm birth in both singleton and twin gestations. Recent evidence also suggests that a long cervix at mid-pregnancy is a predictor of the risk of cesarean section (C/S) in singleton gestation. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a long cervix at mid-pregnancy was associated with an increased risk of C/S in women with twin pregnancies. METHODS: We enrolled 746 women pregnant with twins whose cervical length was measured by trans-vaginal ultrasonography at a mean of 22 weeks of gestation and who delivered in our institution...

AIM: To compare the efficacy of three postoperative feeding regimens on bowel function recovery after term elective cesarean section (CS). METHODS: Women recruited for this randomized trial were allocated into three groups. Women in group (A) were instructed to chew sugarless gum for 10 min every 2 h after surgery. Group (B) mothers received IV fluids for 6 h followed by sipping fruit juices sweetened with honey. Group (C) had oral intake of clear fluids after passage of flatus and regular diet with the passage of bowel movement...

BACKGROUND: Following neonatal resuscitation program (NRP) training, decay in clinical skills can occur. Simulation-based deliberate practice (SBDP) has been shown to maintain NRP skills to a variable extent. Our study objectives were (a) to determine whether a single 30 min simulation-based intervention that incorporates SBDP and mastery learning (ML) can effectively restore skills and prevent skill decay and (b) to compare different timing options. METHODS: Following NRP certification, pediatric residents were randomly assigned to receive a video-recorded baseline assessment plus SBDP-ML refresher education at between 6 and 9 months (early) or between 9 and 12 months (late)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors associated with a successful induction of labor in twin pregnancies and associated maternal morbidity. STUDY DESIGN: This was a retrospective review of twin pregnancies ≥24 weeks' gestation undergoing labor induction from 2011 to 2016. The primary outcome was a successful induction of labor. The secondary outcome was a composite of maternal morbidity, including ≥1 of the following: estimated blood loss (EBL) >1500 ml, blood transfusion, hysterectomy, intensive care unit (ICU) admission or maternal death...

AIMS: The comparison of body composition parameters between the small for gestational age (SGA) and appropriate for gestational age (AGA) at term, 1, 3 and 5 months corrected ages in very preterm infants. METHODS: This cohort study included 92 preterm infants at term age, younger than 32 weeks or <1500 g, classified in two groups: SGA and AGA. Anthropometry and body composition, estimated by air displacement plethysmography, were evaluated at the corrected ages: term and 1, 3, and 5 months...

General ethical principles such as respect for autonomy and justice could probably be unique around the world but there is an enormous diversity of medical care possibilities that are provided for patients around the globe, and therefore different approaches should be considered depending on the level of health care provided.

The purpose of this study was to investigate when in pregnancy to stop the administration of low dose aspirin (150 mg/daily) so as to prevent fetal growth restriction (FGR) A randomised, placebo-controlled study was designed. The patients were all screened positive using the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) early pregnancy screening test for preeclampsia (PE) and FGR prediction. One hundred and fifty patients were enrolled and divided equally into three groups: A - the controls who received placebo treatment; B - those who received aspirin till 32 weeks of gestation and C - those who received aspirin till 36 weeks of gestation...
