Clinical proteomics has been applied to the identification of biomarkers of obstetric and neonatal disease. We will discuss a number of encouraging studies that have led to potentially valid biomarkers in the context of Down's syndrome, preterm birth, amniotic infections, preeclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction and obstructive uropathies. Obtaining noninvasive biomarkers (e.g., from the maternal circulation, urine or cervicovaginal fluid) may be more feasible for obstetric diseases than for diseases of the fetus, for which invasive methods are required (e...

OBJECTIVE: Late-preterm (LPT) neonates account for over 70% of all preterm births in the US. Approximately 60% of LPT births are the result of non-spontaneous deliveries. The optimal timing of delivery for many obstetric conditions at LPT gestations is unclear, likely resulting in obstetric practice variation. The purpose of this study is to identify variation in the obstetrical management of LPT pregnancies. STUDY DESIGN: We surveyed obstetrical providers in North Carolina identified from North Carolina Medical Board and North Carolina Obstetrical and Gynecological Society membership lists...

BACKGROUND: Multiple pregnancies have become more common in the industrialized world because of rising maternal ages and advances in reproductive medicine. METHODS: Selective literature review. RESULTS: Multiple pregnancy carries a higher risk of prematurity, intrauterine growth restriction, and prenatal death, as well as elevated risks to the mother including preeclampsia, diabetes, and hemorrhage during delivery. Genetic tests and ultrasonography are the most important tests for monitoring during pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: In industrialised countries, 1-4% of all children are born as a result of assisted reproductive therapies (ART), such as IVF and ICSI. Possible associations of these ARTs with obstetric and neonatal risk constellations are analysed critically in the context of this review. METHODS: A selective literature search was conducted to examine the influence of ART on obstetric and neonatal aspects. RESULTS: Multiple gestations, occurring more frequently after ART, are of special significance with regard to their associated risks...

Although only 10% of neonates born in the United States require resuscitation, availability of well trained personnel skilled in neonatal resuscitation can result in a significant decline in neonatal morbidity and mortality. One important aspect of performing a successful resuscitation is having a good understanding of the complex dynamics of fetal/neonatal physiology and the adaptations that must be made to transition to extrauterine life. This knowledge will allow one to better serve the resuscitative needs of the neonate...

A growing number of heart, heart-lung, or lung transplant recipients are women of reproductive age. Fertility and pregnancy are important issues in this group of patients and often pose complex medical, psychosocial, and ethical problems. Many successful pregnancy outcomes have been reported following heart or lung transplantation. Nevertheless, these patients are at risk of certain maternal, fetal, and neonatal complications, including hypertension, preeclampsia, infection, preterm birth, and low birth weight...

Pregnancy in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is considered a high-risk pregnancy. It is complicated by preeclampsia, premature labour and miscarriage more frequently than in the general population. Improved prognosis depends on low disease activity during conception and on appropriate medical care (SLE activity monitoring, selection of therapy safe for the mother and the developing foetus, advances in neonatology). Because symptoms of physiological pregnancy and SLE exacerbation are similar, their correct interpretation is essential for skin lesions, arthralgias, arterial hypertension or results of laboratory tests: proteinuria, thrombocytopenia or leucopenia observed in the patient...

UNLABELLED: The optimization of the nutrition of very low birth weight premature neonates has become a major concern given the improvement in survival for these children. The goal of the recommended nutritional intakes is to reach a quantitative and qualitative growth similar to the in utero growth. The objectives of this study were to analyze the anthropometric data at birth and near term in a cohort of premature neonates with birth weight appropriate for gestational age and to try to determine risk factors of postnatal hypotrophy...

Glucocorticoids rate among the most controversial topics in today's perinatology and neonatology. Many sick preterm infants exhibit signs of adrenal insufficiency, the etiology, diagnostic criteria, and optimal treatment of which are under debate. Moreover, most of these infants are exposed to pharmacological glucocorticoid doses both in utero and after birth. In face of this, surprisingly little is known about the physiological glucocorticoid exposure before early preterm birth. This exposure is highly variable and mainly regulated by the placental enzyme 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-2 (11 beta-HSD2), which converts excess cortisol (F) to inactive cortisone (E)...
