In 2015 in Colombia, 60 pregnant women were hospitalized with chikungunya virus infections confirmed by reverse transcription PCR. Nine of these women required admission to the intensive care unit because of sepsis with hypoperfusion and organ dysfunction; these women met the criteria for severe acute maternal morbidity. No deaths occurred. Fifteen women delivered during acute infection; some received tocolytics to delay delivery until after the febrile episode and prevent possible vertical transmission. As recommended by a pediatric neonatologist, 12 neonates were hospitalized to rule out vertical transmission; no clinical findings suggestive of neonatal chikungunya virus infection were observed...

Despite global efforts to improve maternal health, many developing countries including Pakistan have failed to achieve the target of a 75% reduction in maternal deaths by 2015. Addressing socioeconomic inequalities in access to emergency obstetric care is crucial for reducing the maternal mortality rate. This study was done to examine the time trends and socioeconomic inequalities in the utilization of cesarean section (C-section) in Pakistan during 1990-2013. We used data from the Pakistan Demographic and Health Surveys (PDHS) conducted during 1990 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: Explanation models for the effectiveness of homeopathy are not supported by natural sciences and the aggregated evidence from clinical trials is unconvincing. From this standpoint, placebo effects seem the most obvious explanation for the therapeutic effects experienced in homeopathy. Still, many physicians continue to prescribe homeopathic treatments. OBJECTIVES: Whether physicians who prescribe homeopathic treatments aim to achieve placebo effects or actually believe in specific effects is poorly understood...

OBJECTIVE: Obstetrician-gynecologists are the main providers of women's healthcare. However, workforce shortages and excessive workloads among these providers have been encountered in many countries. While most past studies on this subject have investigated the spatial distribution of obstetrics-gynecology clinics, few have focused on their temporal availability, especially on the national level. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The weekly opening time schedules (divided into morning, afternoon, and evening sessions) of all obstetrics-gynecology clinics in Taiwan were extracted from the web site of Taiwan's National Health Insurance Administration in July 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Vietnamese clinicians routinely perform episiotomies in the belief that 3rd-4th degree tears may be prevented, based partly on the view that Vietnamese women have a short perineal length that puts them at increased risk of tears. However, there is no evidence to suggest Vietnamese women have a short perineum compared with other populations. We aimed to determine the mean perineal length among Vietnamese women in early labor and in the second stage, and to compare this to findings from similar studies in other populations...

There is immense change affecting obstetrical and gynecologic medical practice at this moment in time-involving reimbursement with the shift from volume-based to value-based care, increasing regulation, and workforce sustainability. Aspects to be reviewed in this chapter include reimbursements and Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), electronic medical records, physician satisfaction surveys, maintenance of certification, and physician burnout.

AIMS: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increasing worldwide. The aim of this study was to investigate whether copeptin concentrations, measured at the first prenatal visit, are associated with risk of GDM. METHODS: From July 2015 to June 2016, consecutive women who admitted to the obstetrics center of our hospital were included. Data for fasting plasma glucose and copeptin concentrations at the first prenatal visit and one-step GDM screening with 75-g oral glucose tolerance test performed between 24 and 28 weeks of gestation were collected and analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: In order to cover the shortage of midwives (MWs) in the health district of Tougan, Burkina Faso, a strategy for the decentralization of emergency obstetric cares, based on ad hoc interventions undertaken by MW to manage obstetric complications in health centers (HCs), has been developed in rural areas. This study aimed to describe this experience and to analyze the achieved results. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional, analytical, intervention study based on a review of routine data from all the parturients treated from 2013 to 2015...

REVIEW

BACKGROUND: This is an update of a previous Cochrane review published in Issue 1, 2010 and updated in Issue 9, 2015. The role of lymphadenectomy in surgical management of endometrial cancer remains controversial. Lymph node metastases can be found in approximately 10% of women who before surgery are thought to have cancer confined to the womb. Removal of all pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes (lymphadenectomy) at initial surgery has been widely advocated, and pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy remains part of the FIGO (International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics) staging system for endometrial cancer...

BACKGROUND: Caesarean sections (CSs) are associated with a high infection risk. Surgical site infection (SSI) incidence is among the markers of effectiveness of infection prevention efforts. The aim of this study was to analyze risk factors for SSI, incidence, and microbiology in patients who underwent CS.

BACKGROUND: There is emerging evidence that caesarean section at full dilatation is associated with an increased risk of subsequent spontaneous preterm birth. AIM: To investigate the association between caesarean section at full dilatation and spontaneous preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of women who had two consecutive births at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, 1989-2015.
