PURPOSE: Prematurity is the most common cause of infant mortality and morbidity. To prevent this, the timing of parturition and its mechanisms should be understood. It is likely that inhibitor CD94/NKG2A positive decidual natural killer cells (uNK) provide for the continuation of pregnancy. Here, we aimed to evaluate whether CD94/NKG2A positive uNK cells are highest in elective cesarian section (C/S) (suggesting ongoing gestation), moderate in normal full-term birth, and lowest in pre-eclamptic parturition...

There is evidence that perinatal morbidity and mortality has not changed - caesarean section rate increased and data remained stable and rate of intro and post operative complications was increased. There is another view of the picture: the right of patient to choose mode of delivery and the reality, that the number of patients with prior caesarian section and number patient and physician prefer caesarean section. The following topics are discussed as well: age of pregnant woman, macrosomia and intrauterine growth restriction, malpresentation, multiple gestation, preeclampsia, BMI, role of assisted reproductive technologies, electronic monitoring of fetal heart rate in labor, induction of labor...

Bacterial infections, even without any perinatal risk factors, are common in newborns, especially in preterm neonates. The aim of this study was to evaluate possible impairment of neutrophil chemotaxis in term and preterm neonates compared with adults as well as neonates with different modes of delivery and anaesthesia. We analysed the expression of the adhesion molecule L-Selectin as well as shape change, spontaneous and N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP)-induced transmigration of neutrophils in a flow cytometric assay of chemotaxis after spontaneous delivery with Cesarian Section (CS) under spinal anaesthesia (mepivacaine, sufentanil), epidural anaesthesia (ropivacaine or bupivacaine, sufentanil) or general anaesthesia (ketamine, thiopental, succinylcholine)...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary fat embolism (FE) in patients after major bone fracture and other trauma may lead to acute respiratory distress, but few clinical evidence of lung injury remains, and there is a dearth of histopathologic information after the initial recovery. We recently reported histologic changes in the lungs of a patient who died after cesarian delivery, which were similar to a rat model of FE. In this model, we found that despite an apparent full recovery, modest fibrotic damage persisted up to 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Separately, prenatal antibiotics and Caesarian delivery have been found to be associated with increased risk of allergic diseases. It is not clear whether these factors may modify the effect of each other. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the associations between delivery types and eczema, sensitization and total IgE at age 2 years were modified by maternal use of prenatal medications. METHODS: Prenatal charts of women enrolled in the WHEALS birth cohort were reviewed for delivery mode and medications prescribed and administered throughout their entire pregnancy, including systemic antibiotics and vaginally applied antifungal medications...

Background: An ectopic pregnancy within a Cesarean scar represents a rare type of extrauterine pregnancy in which the fertilized egg nidates in the myometrium of the uterine wall within a scar left from a previous Cesarean delivery. An unrecognized growing Cesarian scar pregnancy may result in uterine rupture, uncontrollable metrorrhagia, and bleeding into the abdominal cavity; therefore, early diagnosis and therapy are necessary to prevent the development of severe complications. Case: A 34-year-old woman after a previous Cesarean delivery presented with amenorrhoa of 7 weeks' duration...
