Fathers' experiences of a vacuum extraction delivery – a qualitative study

Conclusions VE delivery has a strong emotional impact on fathers and the procedure is often experienced as a dramatic way to end a birth and an ultimate way to terminate a long birth process. The results indicate that a lack of support and of a genuine opportunity to participate, as well as the mother's pain impair their experience, not the VE delivery, per se.

CONCLUSIONS: Prophylactic intravenous antibiotics are effective in reducing infectious puerperal morbidities in terms of superficial and deep perineal wound infection or serious infectious complications in women undergoing operative vaginal deliveries without clinical indications for antibiotic administration after delivery. Prophylactic antibiotics slightly improve perineal pain and health consequences of perineal pain, probably reduce the costs, and may slightly reduce the maternal hospital re-admission and health-related quality of life. However, the effect on reduction of endometritis, organ or space perineal wound inf...

Conclusion: Interventions, with the exception of episiotomies, did not have an influence on the occurrence of perineal trauma, but they do need to be carefully assessed. Deliveries in a horizontal position were associated with a higher likelihood of performing an episiotomy.Resumen Objetivo: Identificar las asociaciones entre el resultado perineal en prim íparas y las intervenciones ocurridas durante el trabajo de parto, parto, peso y APGAR del recién nacido. Método: Estudio documental, correlacional, retrospectivo, cuantitativo, llevado a cabo en una maternidad terciaria en el estado de Ceará, ...

Authors: Taki S, Maekita T, Sakata M, Fukatsu K, Maeda Y, Iguchi M, Ito H, Kitano M Abstract Continuous duodenal levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel delivery by a gastrostomy infusion system improves control of Parkinson's disease. The overall complication rates of percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy were reported to be 41% and 59% for immediate and delayed adverse events, respectively. A 72-year-old woman underwent percutaneous endoscopic gastrojejunostomy using the delivery system noted above. Abdominal pain and vomiting occurred 3 months later. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a longitudinal ulcer extending...

The objective of this article is to review existing literature and highlight the potential clinical utility of birthing balls in current obstetric practice. What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and further research? Use of birthing balls has been advocated to decrease labouring time and therefore reduce progression to caesarean section. Larger studies or meta-analysis would be required to confirm potential benefits of birthing ball use. PMID: 31476927 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractIntroductionCancer treatment during childhood may lead to late adverse effects, such as reduced musculoskeletal development, or vascular, endocrine and pulmonary dysfunction, which in turn may have an adverse effect on following pregnancy and childbirth. The aim of the present study was to investigate pregnancy and obstetric outcomes as well as the offspring's health among childhood and adolescent female cancer survivors.Material and methodsThis register ‐based study included all women born between 1973 and 1977 diagnosed with cancer in childhood or adolescence (age

We present a case where the buttressing balloon-expandable stent is crushed and subsequently removed percutaneously prior to placement of a high radial force self-expanding stent at the compressive site. A 38-year-old woman with May-Thurner syndrome underwent left common iliac vein self-expanding nitinol stent placement. Thirteen months later, she had recurrent symptoms due to collapse/compression of the stent (Fig. 1a) at the May-Thurner lesion. A buttressing balloon-expandable stent was placed (Fig. 1b) with symptom resolution. She again returned, two months later with recurrent left leg pain and swelling. Imaging reveal...

Conclusions The recent, first randomized clinical trial demonstrated overall and progression free survival benefits after SBRT to oligometastatic disease which supports prior retrospective case series (6). The spine is a common site of metastatic bone disease, and as high quality data continue to mature, along with completion of additional randomized clinical trials, it is expected that utility of SBRT to the spine will increase in the future. Spine SBRT is unique due to the requirement of sharp dose falloff to prevent serious neurologic morbidity. With recent advances in radiotherapy planning, robotic patient positionin...
