American Journal of obstetrics and gynecology

Authors of policy statements from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and from the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine do not acknowledge the potential for their clinical income to influence their opinions, or the positions of the societies they represent. These policy statements were published in Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, again, without acknowledgment of the potential for conflict of interest. The case of noninvasive prenatal testing, which has threatened the role of maternal-fetal medicine in the practice of prenatal screening and diagnosis, and has significantly reduced the demand for invasive prenatal diagnosis, illustrates the importance of identifying this potential conflict...

Scientific publications can be subject to varying degrees of interpretive bias, also known as spin. The rate of spin in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with nonsignificant primary outcomes in the general obstetrics and gynecology literature is unknown. A decade (January 2006 through December 2015) of the tables of contents of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology were screened, with 503 RCTs identified. Limiting assessment to only parallel-group RCTs with a nonsignificant primary outcome (P≥...

Acute pelvic pain in premenopausal women frequently poses a diagnostic dilemma. These patients may exhibit nonspecific signs and symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and leukocytosis. The cause of pelvic pain includes a myriad of diagnostic possibilities such as obstetric, gynecologic, urologic, gastrointestinal, and vascular etiologies. The choice of the imaging modality is usually determined by a suspected clinical differential diagnosis. Thus the patient should undergo careful evaluation and the suspected differential diagnosis should be narrowed before an optimal imaging modality is chosen...

Text messaging is an increasingly popular communication tool in health interventions, but has been little studied in maternal and infant health. This literature review evaluates studies of text messaging that may be applied to the promotion of maternal and infant health. Articles from peer-reviewed journals published before June 2012 were included if they were experimental or quasi-experimental studies of behaviors endorsed either by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American Pediatrics Association, or the United States Preventive Services Task Force; included reproductive age women (12-50 years) or infants up to 2 years of age; and were available in English...

I appreciate the opportunity to provide my reflections on the POP-Q, now more than 20 years since it was first conceived and 17 years since its publication in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The invitation led me to dig into old files and recall--through a series of insightful emails, faxes, meeting summaries and draft documents--a document made possible by the combined efforts of an extraordinary group of individuals.

PURPOSE: To provide the best care, physicians must determine what published information is relevant, valid, and clinically useful. Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters (POEMs) defines relevance as information that addresses clinical questions, measures clinical outcomes, and has the potential to change practice. The most useful clinical information is presented in terms of absolute risk reduction (ARR), number needed to treat (NNT), and number needed to harm (NNH). The purpose of this study was to estimate the percentage of drug treatment articles published in major medical journals that provide a calculated ARR, NNT, or NNH...
