Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and its free β-subunit (β-hCG) are exclusively synthesized by the villous trophoblast. α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is synthesized by the secondary yolk sac and fetal liver. Levels of both hormones differ between women with placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders and those with non-accreta previa.(1,2) Second-trimester maternal serum levels of AFP are increased,(1) and first-trimester serum β-hCG is decreased in women with PAS,(2) compared with those with non-accreta placenta previa...

OBJECTIVE: Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus, associated with pelvic pain and subfertility, affecting 0.6-10% of the general female population. The association between endometriosis and obstetrical outcomes is not well established. We aimed to evaluate whether endometriosis is associated with a higher incidence of obstetrical and neonatal complications. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study of all deliveries in a university-affiliated tertiary hospital (2007-2014)...

Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a life-saving procedure used to control bleeding and maintain blood pressure temporarily in traumatic hemorrhagic shock. Uterine rupture and placenta accreta provoke uncontrollable massive hemorrhaging. REBOA may be useful for hemodynamic stabilization to prevent cardiac arrest in high-risk pregnancy.

Placenta previa is often associated with preterm delivery, reduced birth weight, a higher frequency of placental accreta and postpartum haemorrhage, and increased likelihood of blood transfusion. The present study aimed to examine the expression of high mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1) in the placenta of women with or without placenta previa. The study group consisted of placental tissues obtained from women with or without placenta previa. The expression levels of HMGB1 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) were evaluated in the placental tissues using reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction, western blotting and immunohistochemistry...

INTRODUCTION: Acupuncture is commonly used in various aspect of Western medicine in recent years including in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Although there are many clinical trials of acupuncture in IVF and the Cochrane meta-analysis did not find benefit of adjuvant acupuncture for IVF, there is no report on the pregnancy outcomes of women who had received acupuncture during their IVF treatment. OBJECTIVES: To compare the pregnancy outcomes of women randomized to receive real versus placebo acupuncture during their IVF treatment...

OBJECTIVE: To report our experience on the value of transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) or transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) for the uterus-preserving management of retained placenta accreta with marked vascularity after abortion or delivery. STUDY DESIGN: Thirty-eight consecutive women with retained placenta accreta were retrospectively analyzed over a 5-year period. When elevated levels of serum β-hCG (> 25 mIU/mL) were detected, TACE with dactinomycin was chosen for devascularization along with cytotoxic effects on active trophoblasts; in contrast, if the serum β-hCG level was low (≤ 25 mIU/mL), TAE was chosen...

INTRODUCTION: Our objective was to elucidate the overall diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound in detecting the severity of abnormally invasive placentation (AIP). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medline, Embase, CINAHL and The Cochrane databases were searched. The ultrasound signs explored were: loss of hypoechoic (clear) zone in the placental-uterine interface, placental lacunae, bladder wall interruption, myometrial thinning, focal exophitic mass, placental lacunar flow, sub-placental vascularity, and uterovescical hypervascularity...

Effective diagnosis and clinical management of placenta accreta (PA) in China are not clear. The purpose of the study was to analyze the risk factors and diagnosis of PA, maternal and neonatal outcomes in patients with PA. It was a retrospective study of cases with PA, confirmed by histologically and/or clinically suspected during 3 years in 2 tertiary referral hospitals. The incidence rate of patients with PA, who had history of artificial abortion, cesarean section (CS), and placenta previa (PP) was 94%, 70%, and 72%, respectively...

The aim of this study was to compare the postoperative results of the patients who were treated with Bakri balloon tamponade or hysterectomy for placenta accreta and increta. Patients who were diagnosed with placenta accreta or increta preoperatively and intraoperatively and treated with Bakri balloon tamponade (Group 1) or caesarean hysterectomy (Group 2) were compared in regards to the postoperative results. Among the 36 patients diagnosed with placenta accreta or increta, 19 patients were treated with Bakri balloon tamponade while 17 cases were treated with hysterectomy...

Introduction Basal plate myometrium (BPMYO), the pathological presence of myometrial fibers in the basal plate, is a common finding on pathological examination of the placenta, yet its clinical correlates are not well studied. As myometrial fibers are frequently located in proximity to poorly converted maternal spiral arteries, our objective was to determine whether BPMYO is associated with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), a well-known clinical sequela of abnormal maternal artery remodeling. Methods This case-control study included women who delivered a live-born singleton gestation whose placentas were sent for pathological examination...

BACKGROUND: Placenta adhesive disorder (PAD) is one of the most common causes of postpartum hemorrhage and peripartum hysterectomy. The main risk factors are placenta previa and prior uterine surgery such as cesarean section. Diagnosis of placenta adhesive disorders can lead to a decrease of maternal mortality and morbidities. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of color Doppler ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of PADs...

Postpartum hemorrhage causes 25% of all maternal deaths worldwide and is the leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality following vaginal or caesarean delivery. Every year, postpartum hemorrhage is estimated to cause approximately 125 000 maternal deaths and is associated with morbidity among 20 million women. It is caused by several obstetric conditions, including uterine atony and placental problems such as placenta accreta spectrum disorders, trauma, and lacerations. Several techniques are known to prevent postpartum hemorrhage, including uterine cavity tamponade, uterine artery ligation, uterine artery embolization, pre-cesarean prophylactic balloon catheterization, uterine compression sutures, hypogastric artery ligation, and hysterectomy...
