BACKGROUND: Cell-free DNA-based non-invasive prenatal testing for aneuploidy (NIPT) is now established as the most accurate screening test for trisomy 21. This test became clinically available on a patient-funded basis in Australia and New Zealand in 2013. AIM: To investigate the clinical implementation of NIPT use by members of the Australian Association of Obstetrical and Gynaecological Ultrasonologists (AAOGU) during its first year of local availability. METHOD: Email invitations with an embedded link to an anonymous online survey were sent to all 140 members of the AAOGU in December 2013...

This system is designed to provide guidance in an area where regulation is lacking worldwide. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of all procedures notified to the Interventional Procedures Programme (NICE) between 2002 and 2012...

METHODS: Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with 29 obstetricians and gynaecologists from England, Belgium and Italy, exploring training and scope of practice, following a common topic guide...

With information and data in all domains growing every day, it is difficult to manage and extract useful knowledge for specific situations. This paper presents an integrated system architecture to support the activity in the Ob-Gin departments with further developments in using new technology to manage Big Data processing - using Google BigQuery - in the medical domain. The data collected and processed with Google BigQuery results from different sources: two Obstetrics & Gynaecology Departments, the TreatSuggest application - an application for suggesting treatments, and a home foetal surveillance system...

PARTICIPANTS: 18 midwives, including graduate year midwives, caseload midwives and hospital midwives working normal shifts, employed within a hospital...

BACKGROUND: Despite limited evidence evaluating early postnatal discharge, length of hospital stay has declined dramatically in Australia since the 1980s. The recent rising birth rate in Victoria, Australia has increased pressure on hospital beds, and many services have responded by discharging women earlier than planned, often with little preparation during pregnancy. We aimed to explore the views of women and their partners regarding a number of theoretical postnatal care 'packages' that could provide an alternative approach to early postnatal care...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this clinical update is to summarize articles and guidelines published in the last year with the potential to change current clinical practice as it relates to women's health. METHODS: We used two independent search strategies to identify articles relevant to women's health published between March 1, 2007 and February 29, 2008. First, we reviewed the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and journal indices from the ACP Journal Club, Annals of Internal Medicine, Archives of Internal Medicine, British Medical Journal, Circulation, Diabetes, JAMA, JGIM, Journal of Women's Health, Lancet, NEJM, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Women's Health Journal Watch...

The involvement of Dr. Richard Mattingly, Editor of Obstetrics & Gynecology between 1972 and 1985, in the publication of an article on carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the cervix, facilitated exposure of an unethical study into the natural history of CIS of the cervix (now termed cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3) by Dr. Herbert Green. The object of Dr. Green's study was to verify his premise that CIS was not a precursor of invasive cancer, and he published his "atypical viewpoint" that CIS was a benign disorder in international medical journals and the lay press...

Fifty-six residency training programs in Region I Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology/Association of Professors in Gynecology and Obstetrics were surveyed for compliance with the 24-hour, in-house attending coverage requirement, which took effect July 1991. Forty-six program directors responded to a questionnaire, for a response rate of 82.1%. Each had plans to implement this coverage in the 1991-1992 academic year. Two programs were unable to implement coverage because of inadequate financing or insufficient staffing...

Evidence-based medicine, the new practice paradigm, is rapidly replacing medicine by authority, the traditional paradigm. In 1993, we introduced evidence-based practice into our Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at San Francisco General Hospital, University of California, San Francisco. We orient all fellows, residents, and students to new methods of clinical decision making that use formal rules of evidence. We changed the format of clinical conferences from didactic lectures to clinical problem-solving sessions using the evidence-based medicine approach...

Studies carried out on the phantom have shown how reliable transverse diameter measurements of the pelvis are when carried out by X-Ray scanning pelvimetry compared with conventional X-Ray pelvimetry. The practice of scanning radiopelvimetry (digital radiography) depends on the availability of the machine and of an induced, secondary circuit. The arrival of this new technique makes it necessary for the sake of economy to limit the indications for the investigation. We have studied the indications for the examination in a population of pregnant women in a University Hospital Service as well as pregnant women in a District General Hospital...
