OBJECTIVE: To identify the relationship between pathologically diagnosed placenta accreta and risk of major morbidity in a subsequent pregnancy. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients with pathologically diagnosed placenta accreta in an index pregnancy who returned with a subsequent pregnancy at our academic center from 2007 to 2015. Subsequent delivery outcomes included minor, major, or no morbidity. Minor morbidity included estimated blood loss 500-1,500 cc for vaginal and 1,000-1,500 cc for cesarean delivery, transfusion of one to three units of red cells, and minor surgical procedures...

Background Gastric rupture is a rare, life-threatening condition during pregnancy. Case study We present three cases of gastric perforation during pregnancy and the puerperium. The first patient presented with gastric perforation 4 days following an uncomplicated cesarean delivery for obstetric indications. She initially complained of epigastric pain; however, those symptoms resolved. She later demonstrated worsening abdominal distension, intra-abdominal free fluid, and signs of peritonitis. At laparotomy, an ascariasis-associated gastric rupture was diagnosed...

OBJECTIVE: A growing body of evidence suggests that the surgical technique for uterine closure influences uterine scar healing, but there is still no consensus about optimal uterine closure during cesarean delivery (CD). The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to compare the effect of single- versus double-layer closure on the risk of uterine scar defect. METHODS: MEDLINE, Scopus, http://ClinicalTrials.gov, the PROSPERO International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews, EMBASE and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched from inception of each database until May 2016...

In France, 60,000 neonates are born preterm every year (7.4%), half of them after the spontaneous onset of labor. Among preventable risk factors of spontaneous prematurity, only cessation of smoking is associated with decreased prematurity (level of evidence [LE]1). It is therefore recommended (Grade A). Routine screening and treatment of vaginal bacteriosis is not recommended in the general population (Grade A). The only population for which vaginal progesterone is recommended is that comprising asymptomatic women with singleton pregnancies, no history of preterm delivery, and a short cervix at 16-24 weeks of gestation (Grade B)...

BACKGROUND: Many women die while going through childbirth; hemorrhage being common cause for maternal mortality. Many maternal deaths can be saved by building up hemoglobin antenatally and timely blood transfusion. The transfusion may result in many complications hence the blood transfusion practices should be streamlined and adhered to and reviewed periodically. This retrospective study was undertaken at one of the tertiary care hospital to find out the blood demand and utilization practices among the delivery cases and suggest measures if any to improve the existing practices...

BACKGROUND: Although the impact of emergency procedures on the childbirth experience has been studied extensively, a possible association of childbirth experience with indications for emergency interventions has not been reported. OBJECTIVES: To compare the impacts on childbirth experience of 'planned' delivery (elective cesarean section and vaginal delivery) versus 'unplanned' delivery (vacuum extraction or emergency cesarean section); the intervention itself (vacuum extraction versus emergency cesarean section); and indications for intervention (arrest of labor versus risk to the mother or fetus)...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic approaches to addressing insufficient lactation are available but remain poorly understood. Current trends in maternal health, such as increasing rates of obesity, delayed age at childbearing, and high rates of cesarean section, may be associated with physiological challenges for lactation that cannot be managed by counseling alone. Women who have not had success with counseling alone, including adoptive mothers seeking to induce lactation, may use galactagogues (pharmaceutical and herbal compounds used to increase lactation)...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of dengue hemorrhagic fever is increasing among the adult population living in endemic areas. The disease carries a 0.73% fatality rate for the general population, but what happens when the disease strikes a special subpopulation group, the obstetrics? Perhaps the important question specific to this special subpopulation revolves around the right time and mode of delivery under severe coagulopathy and plasma leakage in conditions of imminent delivery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 24-year-old primigravid Sundanese woman presented to our intensive care unit due to acute pulmonary edema secondary to massive plasma leakage caused by severe dengue...

OBJECTIVE: A cesarean section (C-section) is performed to deliver a baby through the mother's abdomen. In recent years, the rate of incidences requiring a C-section is steadily increasing all over the world. Advanced maternal age, chronic health problems, multiple pregnancies as a result of the development of assisted reproductive technologies, and an insufficient supplementary health network can be considered as the reasons why mothers and obstetricians prefer a C-section. Our study aimed to identify the risk factors for the need of C-section in women with a history of vaginal delivery...
