AJP Rep 2019; 09: e190-e194 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1692482 Objective To compare outcomes of operative intervention in the second stage of labor during trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC). Study Design A secondary analysis of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network cesarean section registry was conducted. Analysis was by first attempted mode of delivery. Results A total of 1,837 met inclusion criteria. Subjects in the operative vaginal groups (OVDs) were more likely to have a prior vaginal delivery (vacuum 34.2%; forceps 34.3%) than the repeat cesarean delivery (RCD) group (22.6%; p
This study also aimed to demonstrate whether fetal cord blood oxygenation was affected by maternal BMI and/or delivery time. Materials and methods: The study included parturients with ASA I score undergoing cesarean section under spinal anesthesia in 2015 and 2016. They were divided into two groups according to BMI: Group 1 comprised parturients with BMI of
We report a case of massive bleeding due to a coagulation disorder associated with acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP); the patient survived by massive transfusion. She presented at 34 weeks of gestation, met six of the Swansea criteria, and was diagnosed with severe AFLP. We performed an emergency cesarean section because termination of the pregnancy was necessary for the treatment of the AFLP. After the surgery, which led to massive bleeding in the peritoneal cavity due to the coagulation disorder, she underwent two further operations and three transarterial embolizations. She received factor VII and underwent plasma...

AbstractDoubling of C-section rates from year 2000 to 2015 globally was declared an eye-opener on October 13, 2018, in FIGO World Congress. Rapid increase in rates without clear evidence of concomitant decrease in maternal or neonatal morbidity or mortality raises significant concern that cesarean delivery is overused. This review addresses issues related to exponentially rising rates, reasons for it, and strategies to reduce. Previous cesarean delivery has main contribution to rising rates as per evidence from the literature search in last 5 years. Focus on optimizing indications of primary C-section resulted in mak...
