BACKGROUND: The cerebroplacental ratio has been proposed as a marker of failure to reach growth potential near term. Low cerebroplacental ratio, regardless of the fetal size, is independently associated with the need for operative delivery for presumed fetal compromise and with neonatal unit admission at term. OBJECTIVE: The main aim of this study was to evaluate whether the cerebroplacental ratio at term is a marker of reduced fetal growth rate. The secondary aim was to investigate the relationship between low cerebroplacental ratio at term, reduced fetal growth velocity and adverse pregnancy outcome...

OBJECTIVE: Spontaneous preterm birth is an important cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. An increasing body of evidence suggests that uteroplacental ischemia plays an important role in the etiology of spontaneous preterm birth. We aimed to study whether antiplatelet agents reduce the risk of spontaneous preterm birth. DATA SOURCES: We included data from an individual participant data meta-analysis of studies that had evaluated the effect of antiplatelet agents to reduce preeclampsia (Perinatal Antiplatelet Review of International Studies Individual Participant Data)...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which constitutes pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, is a common disorder associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Landmark trials have shown that direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are as effective as conventional anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKA) in prevention of VTE recurrence and associated with less bleeding. This has paved the way for the recently published guidelines to change their recommendations in favor of DOACs in acute and long-term treatment of VTE in patients without cancer...

BACKGROUND: Preeclampsia and fetal growth restriction are major causes of perinatal death and handicap in survivors. Randomized clinical trials have reported that the risk of preeclampsia, severe preeclampsia, and fetal growth restriction can be reduced by the prophylactic use of aspirin in high-risk women, but the appropriate dose of the drug to achieve this objective is not certain. OBJECTIVE: We sought to estimate the impact of aspirin dosage on the prevention of preeclampsia, severe preeclampsia, and fetal growth restriction...

REVIEW

Preeclampsia is a potentially serious complication of pregnancy with increasing significance worldwide. Preeclampsia is the cause of 9%-26% of global maternal mortality and a significant proportion of preterm delivery, and maternal and neonatal morbidity. Incidence is increasing in keeping with the increase in obesity, maternal age, and women with medical comorbidities entering pregnancy. Recent developments in the understanding of the pathophysiology of preeclampsia have opened new avenues for prevention, screening, and management of this condition...

OBJECTIVES: 1) Describe the distribution of heart rate in the first 48h postpartum in women with no evidence of sepsis, anaemia or haemorrhage. 2) Investigate the relationship between postpartum heart rate and other maternal factors. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cross-sectional study of postpartum women who delivered between July 2012 and June 2015 in a tertiary hospital. Data was analysed from the local maternity system and electronic vital signs database. The main outcome measures: Heart rate at 6, 12, 24 and 48h postpartum...

OBJECTIVE: To systematically review the literature and synthesize data on the diagnostic performance of a 12-hour urine collection for proteinuria in pregnant women with suspected preeclampsia. DATA SOURCES: We performed a literature search of PubMed, Embase, Scopus, ClinicalTrials.gov, and CINAHL through February 2014 using key words related to gestational hypertension, preeclampsia, and proteinuria. METHODS OF STUDY SELECTION: Studies that contained results of both the 12-hour and 24-hour urine collection in the same patients were eligible...
