guid cholestasis of pregnancy

Stephen J Bacak, Courtney Olson-Chen, Eva Pressman
Determining the optimal timing for induction of labor is critical in minimizing the risks to maternal and fetal health. While data are available to guide us in some clinical situations, such as hypertension and diabetes, many gaps in knowledge still exist in others, including cholestasis of pregnancy, fetal anomalies, and placental abruption. This review of the currently available literature assesses the risks and benefits of preterm and early term induction in a wide variety of maternal and fetal conditions...

OBJECTIVE: The benefits of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) use for treating intra-hepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) remain uncertain. A 2010 Cochrane Review of randomized control trials was unable to recommend either for or against the use of UDCA in treating ICP. We conducted a meta-analysis of the literature, including both non-randomized studies (NRSs) and RCTs. The objective of the study was to determine if patients included in NRSs were comparable to those in RCTs, and to determine whether the inclusion of NRSs could strengthen the available evidence and guide clinical practice on UDCA use in women with ICP...

Some aspects regarding the etiology and the nosologic classification of various pregnancy dermatoses are highly controversial. While some authors highlight the existence of premises allowing several skin disorders to be re-grouped within broader disease concepts, others underline the absence of clear, undisputed etiopathogenetic data that could support such classifications. This review exhaustively analyzes the various pregnancy dermatoses (pemphigoid gestationis, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, impetigo herpetiformis, polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, and the papular dermatoses of pregnancy [prurigo of pregnancy, pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy, and the new classification, atopic eruption of pregnancy]) in an attempt to shed light over this confusing and disputed domain, while subsequently offering an algorithmic approach to their diagnosis and management...

Liver dysfunction can appear at any point of pregnancy and causes great anxiety to the patient, her family and sometimes her medical attendants. This review concentrates on conditions specific to pregnancy (hyperemesis gravidarum, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, toxemia of pregnancy, HELLP syndrome) and provides a guide in diagnosis and management of hepatobiliary conditions that are probably related to pregnancy (e.g., gallstones, Budd-Chiari syndrome) or that are not specific to pregnancy (e.g., acute viral hepatitis), and also the situations in which pregnancy occurs during pre-existing liver disease (e...

A 24-years-old woman at eleventh weeks gestation was admitted to our hospital with severe acute pancreatitis. Based upon a history of cholecystolithiasis, laboratory findings of cholestasis and a critical clinical course an ultrasound-guided endoscopic papillotomy was performed nine hours after admission. Sludge was removed from the common bile duct without fluoroscopic control. Following this procedure the patients condition improved continuously during typical conservative treatment of the acute pancreatitis...

This discussion has illustrated the enormous variety found within the category of familial intrahepatic cholestasis. It has also demonstrated how much more there is to learn about these fascinating disorders, which may be examples of experiments in nature on bile formation. This analysis should be recognized to be the author's own, and there is much debate about this classification. For example, some workers in this field contend that North American Indian cholestasis is in reality Byler's syndrome. Such an identity seems unlikely, given the differences between the two syndromes (Table 2)...
