Predictive Factors for Delivery within 7 Days after Successful 48-Hour Treatment of Threatened Preterm Labor

Conclusion PPROM and vaginal bleeding in the current pregnancy are relevant predictive factors in all women, as are maternal age, cervical length, and fFN in women without PPROM and nulliparity, history of preterm birth in women with PPROM.[...]Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001, USA.Article in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents  |  Abstract  |  open access Full text

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the association of first-trimester subchorionic hematomas with pregnancy outcomes after 20 weeks of gestation in women with singleton pregnancies. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all women with singleton pregnancies presenting for prenatal care before 14 weeks of gestation over a 3-year period at a single obstetric practice. All patients underwent routine first-trimester ultrasound examinations. We compared rates of adverse pregnancy outcomes at more than 20 weeks of gestation in women with and without a subchorionic hematoma on the initial ultrasound examin...

CONCLUSION: Our study suggests EMV is an uncommon finding following miscarriage and associated with the presence of retained products of conception (confirmed histologically in all cases surgically managed). Expectant management is a safe option in our cohort, with minimal bleeding, although associated with protracted time to resolution. When patients opt for surgery the maximum blood loss was 300mls, but no patient required a blood transfusion or embolization. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the value of clinical and ultrasound risk factors in predicting severe postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) (≥1.5 L) in pregnancies undergoing caesarean section for placenta praevia. This cohort consists of all cases of placenta praevia undergoing caesarean delivery over a period of 5 years in a service unit. Patients and their delivery data were retrieved from an obstetric database. Ultrasound features were prospectively recorded before caesarean section. The incidence of caesarean section for placenta praevia was 0.98% (n = 215). Of these, 12.1% (n =...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data demonstrates no association between the presence of intrauterine haematoma in the first trimester and first trimester miscarriage. However, a relationship with preterm birth independent of the presence of symptoms of pain and bleeding is evident. These women should be counseled about their increased risk of preterm birth and possibly be offered increased surveillance during their pregnancies. This article is protected by copyright.

This article will discuss and show different and variable sonographic presentations of scar niches and uterine postpartum ultrasonography with vaginal birth after cesarean section that can be confusing and many should be unaware of. This brief review aims to help practitioners to avoid confusion and be aware and acquainted with the different sonographic findings encountered in practice related to cesarean scar. It can lead to uterine rupture I labour, dehiscence in pregnancy and placenta accreta in the future pregnancy, but this is not evidence-based and not even a contraindication for pregnancy. It is neither an indicatio...
