Objective: To compare the obstetric outcomes of cesarean section in women who had a history of four or more previous cesarean sections with those who had a history of two or three previous cesarean sections. Methods: Total 1318 women who underwent repeat cesarean section between January 2013 and January 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Of these, 244 (18.5%) had previously had four or more cesarean sections (multiple repeat cesarean section group) and 1074 (81...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 22% of women in the United States live in rural areas with limited access to obstetric care. Despite declines in hospital-based obstetric services in many rural communities, midwifery care at home and in free standing birth centers is available in many rural communities. This study examines maternal and neonatal outcomes among planned home and birth center births attended by midwives, comparing outcomes for rural and nonrural women. METHODS: Using the Midwives Alliance of North America Statistics Project 2...

Objective: Although their rates are decreasing, pregnancy-related mortality and morbidity are problems worldwide. In this study, we aimed to review the characteristics, diagnoses, required interventions and outcomes of obstetric patients admitted between 2006 and 2014 to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a tertiary university hospital to provide an indicator for improving the management of critically ill obstetric patients.

INTRODUCTION: Preeclampsia (PE) is the primary obstetrical cause in one to four perinatal deaths. Although the etiology and pathogenesis of preeclampsia is not fully known, a proinflammatory immune state prevails and can disrupt fetal hematopoiesis. Some of the effects on the newborn include neonatal thrombocytopenia, neutropenia, a reduction in T regulatory cells and an increased cytotoxic natural killer cell profile. METHOD: Electronic databases were searched, and defined criteria were applied to select articles for review...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of common obstetric transfusion preparedness strategies to prevent emergency-release transfusions. METHODS: A decision analytic model compared five commonly used transfusion preparedness strategies in a general obstetric population. Patients were classified as being at low, moderate, or high risk for transfusion. The most prepared strategy used a policy of universal type and screen plus crossmatch for high-risk patients...

Delayed haemolytic transfusion reaction is a rare, life-threatening complication of blood transfusion that has been typically described among patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) due to alloimmunisation induced by their exposure to red blood cell antigens through recurrent transfusions. We report the case of a patient who suffered from fatal delayed haemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) occurring 1 week after blood transfusion. Indirect antiglobulin testing confirmed the presence of anti-Kell antibodies that were absent in the pretransfusion sample...

BACKGROUND: Signal functions for emergency obstetric and newborn care (EmONC) are the major interventions for averting maternal and neonatal mortalities. Readiness of the facilities is essential to provide all the basic and comprehensive signal functions for EmONC to ensure emergency services from the designated facilities. The study assessed population coverage and availability of EmONC services in public and private facilities in Bangladesh. METHODS: An assessment was conducted in all the public and private facilities providing obstetric care in to in-patients 24 districts...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the management and maternal outcomes of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted of patients diagnosed with PAS disorders (placenta creta, increta, or percreta) who were treated at a US tertiary care center between February 1, 2011, and January 31, 2016. Obstetric management, anesthetic management, and maternal outcomes were analyzed. RESULTS: A total of 43 cases were identified; placenta previa was diagnosed among 33 (77%)...

OBJECTIVE: The diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in obstetrics is complicated owing to physiological changes, particularly during late pregnancy and the postpartum period. Therefore, a pregnancy-modified DIC score that includes only three components of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) DIC score has been constructed. Our aim was to determine how many blood-transfused postpartum women actually had the diagnosis of overt DIC according to the modified ISTH score and had the correct indications for blood transfusion...

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)...

BACKGROUND: A structured definition of amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) based on 4 criteria was recently proposed for use in research by the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) and the Amniotic Fluid Embolism Foundation. The main objective of this study was to review all AFE-related maternal deaths in France during 2007-2011 according to the presence or not of all these 4 diagnostic criteria. METHODS: Maternal deaths due to AFE were identified by the national experts committee of the French Confidential Enquiry into Maternal Deaths during 2007-2011 (n = 39)...

BACKGROUND: Blood group genotyping is used to predict RhD phenotype in transfusion and obstetric medicine. Prediction of antigen D is based on molecular techniques which targets most common RHD-specific polymorphism. However, inactive RHD variants can suggest false-positive RhD phenotype. Their types and frequencies vary among ethnicities. Our study aimed to identify RHD variants among Moroccan blood donors who are serologically D negative. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: DNA from 53 blood donors who are serologically D negative RhC and/or RhE positive were screened for RHD exon 10 by PCR-SSP...

PURPOSE: To investigate the association between learning climate and adverse perinatal and maternal outcomes in obstetrics-gynecology departments. METHOD: The authors analyzed 23,629 births and 103 learning climate evaluations from 16 nontertiary obstetrics-gynecology departments in the Netherlands in 2013. Multilevel logistic regressions were used to calculate the odds of adverse perinatal and maternal outcomes, by learning climate score tertile, adjusting for maternal and department characteristics...

Maternal hemorrhage, defined as a cumulative blood loss of greater than or equal to 1,000 mL or blood loss accompanied by signs or symptoms of hypovolemia within 24 hours after the birth process, remains the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide (1). Additional important secondary sequelae from hemorrhage exist and include adult respiratory distress syndrome, shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, acute renal failure, loss of fertility, and pituitary necrosis (Sheehan syndrome).Hemorrhage that leads to blood transfusion is the leading cause of severe maternal morbidity in the United States closely followed by disseminated intravascular coagulation (2)...

BACKGROUND: Pregnant women are at risk of infection during labor and delivery. Infection in obstetrics accounts for the second most common cause of maternal mortality next to post partum hemorrhage. Knowing the prevalence and associated risk factors would help to undertake optimal precautions and standard surgical techniques to reduce surgical site infection which poses increased hospital cost and total hospital stay of the patients. METHOD: Facility based retrospective observational study design was carried out purposively to assess the prevalence of surgical site infections and associated risk factors among mothers who had delivery related surgery at obstetric ward of Assela teaching referral hospital from April, 23, 2015 to September 5, 2015...
