OBJECTIVE: The main objective of this study is to analyse the circumstances and management of peripartum hysterectomies performed on patients with placenta percreta. METHODS: This study included 37 patients who were diagnosed with placenta percreta, a condition in which the placenta invades the uterine wall, and who therefore underwent a peripartum hysterectomy. Their demographic characteristics, history of past caesareans, uterine surgery and curettage, duration of hospitalization, admission to an intensive care unit, neonatal outcomes, skin and uterus incision type, hypogastric artery ligation (HAL), complications, quantities of transfused ES (erythrocyte suspensions), and FFP (fresh frozen plasma), maternal morbidity and mortality and postoperative pathology results were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Obstetric haemorrhage (OH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide, although, indirectly, HIV is also a leading cause of maternal mortality in some settings with a high HIV seroprevalence. OBJECTIVE: To determine the possible association between increasing rates of OH and HIV or its treatment. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of women with OH at King Edward VIII Hospital, Durban, South Africa, over a 3-year period (2009 - 2011), during which the drug regimen for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission was evolving from single-dose nevirapine to antenatal zidovudine combined with intrapartum nevirapine (also referred to as dual therapy), and finally to a combination or highly active antiretroviral therapy (cART or HAART)...

The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of the Bakri balloon in the management of PPH. This was a retrospective review of 49 patients, who had Bakri balloon inserted for PPH in KK Hospital between April 2013 and December 2015. The main outcome measure was achievement of haemostasis by Bakri balloon tamponade (BBT). Our success rate was 81.6%. Out of the nine failures (18.0%), five (55.6%) had subtotal hysterectomies and four (44.4%) had total hysterectomies. The causes of PPH in these nine women were unsuspected or foci of placenta accreta (55...

Endometriosis is associated with several adverse pregnancy outcomes.(1) The most severe maternal complications are spontaneous haemoperitoneum in the second half of pregnancy and placenta praevia.(1) Spontaneous haemoperitoneum, mostly associated with endometriosis infiltrating the broad and uterosacral ligaments and the Douglas pouch, is a potentially fatal but rare event. Placenta praevia is more common,(1-3) and it is important to define its incidence, the association with different lesion types, the impact of additional risk factors, the potential obstetrical consequences, and the information that women should receive...

BACKGROUND: There are few reports in the literature of the risks associated with second trimester abortion in women with placenta praevia (PP). We hypothesise that PP increases the risk of complications. AIMS: We sought to determine if PP is associated with a higher risk of blood loss and blood transfusion at the time of dilation and evacuation (D&E). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of 612 consecutive women undergoing abortion at 15-24 weeks of gestation were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Twin pregnancies are at higher risks of velamentous cord insertion and vasa previa. In vitro fertilization is an additional risk factor of abnormal cord insertion and thus the incidence of vasa previa is likely to increase over the next decades. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the role of ultrasound imaging in optimizing the management of twins diagnosed with vasa previa antenatally. STUDY DESIGN: We searched our database for twin pregnancies diagnosed with vasa previa and managed antenatally using measurements of cervical length and performed a systematic review of articles that correlated prenatal diagnosis of vasa previa in twins and pregnancy outcome...

BACKGROUND: Threatened premature labor (TPL) is a severe obstetric complication which affects the mental and physical health of both the mother and fetus. Family resilience may have protective role against psychological distress in women experiencing these pregnancy complications. There may be resilience related risk factors in TPL women, and interplays may exist among psychological variables and within couples. This study aims to examine psychological outcomes influenced by different levels of resilience, and explore psychological interactions in TPL women, spouses, and between women and spouses...

The "lean" umbilical cord (also known as thin-cord syndrome) is a comparatively rare anomaly of the umbilical cord, which has seldom been described in the medical literature. We report on a 35-year-old women who presented to us at 29 + 4 weeks gestation with vaginal bleeding and cervical incompetence subsequently complicated not only by premature rupture of membranes but also acute placental insufficiency requiring emergency caesarean section under general anaesthesia at 31 + 2 weeks gestation. At surgery no obvious cause for the acute placental insufficiency - such as placental abruption, cord prolapse or true knot of the umbilical cord - was found...

This prospective cohort study was conducted in Arash Women's Hospital between August 2014 and August 2015 to define the relationship between caesarean section scar and placental implantation and migration. Seven hundred and thirty women with one previous birth (caesarean section or vaginal delivery) and a singleton pregnancy underwent three ultrasound examinations for placental evaluation at 11-14, 20 and 34 weeks gestation. Previous caesarean section was related to the increased odds of anterior placental implantation but no relation was seen between low-lying placenta or placenta praevia and previous caesarean...
