Tanzania: What Women Ask After C-Section

[Citizen] Although it has become a rising trend worldwide, a C-section is usually performed when normal delivery will put the mother's life or the baby at risk. There aren't general answers to questions about having a C-section. Each individual has a unique case. I advise you to talk to your doctor.

Conclusion: Current updated evidence suggests that CGM is superior to SMBG among GDM pregnancies in terms of detecting hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes, which might result in an improvement of maternal and fetal outcomes. In addition, CGM detects a wider glycemic variability in GDM mothers than non-GDM controls. Further research with larger sample sizes and complete pregnancy coverage is needed to explore the clinical utility such as screening and predictive values of CGM for GDM.

AbstractObjective Despite heterogeneity among Pacific Islanders, most studies aggregate them regardless of origin. Thus, limited information is available about perinatal outcomes among various subgroups of Pacific Islanders in the United States, including immigrants from the Republic of the Marshall Islands. We sought to evaluate perinatal outcomes among Marshallese women.Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study of women with at least one singleton live birth between 1997 and 2013 in two Arkansas counties using birth certificate data from the Arkansas Department of Health. Unadjusted and adjusted prevalence ratios (PR)...

ini G Abstract OBJECTIVE: To identify modifiable risk factors associated with early initiation of breastfeeding (EIBF) and exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) in Colombia. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study from the 2010 Colombia nationally representative Demographic Health Survey (DHS). Studied exposures were categorized into five hierarchical blocks of increasing proximity to the outcomes: household, maternal, health systems, child, and early feeding characteristics. The two outcomes examined were delayed breastfeeding initiation among infants

This study was designed to evaluate the effect of ulinastatin on vascular endothelial cell damage and coagulation in pregnant women with severe pre-eclampsia (PE).From October 2015 to November 2017 at Tianjin Central Hospital of gynecology and obstetrics in China. Eighty pregnant women with severe PE, who elected to deliver by cesarean section, were randomly assigned to a control group or an ulinastatin group. The plasma concentration of von Willebrand factor (vWF) and platelet granule membrane protein (GMP-140), platelet count, fibrinogen levels, prothrombin time (PT), and partial prothrombin activation time (APTT) w...

Rationale: Invasive moles occur in the fertile period, with about 95% occurring after previous mole removal and the remaining 5% occurring after several other pregnancies. Patient concerns: A 27-year-old patient developed a rare invasive mole two months after a missed abortion. Diagnoses: A transvaginal ultrasound scan revealed a 3.6 × 2.9 × 2.4 cm sized lesion with cystic vascular areas within it, within the myometrium of the right fundal posterior region of the uterus. There was no metastasis to other organs. Interventions: After administration of methotrexate, the level of beta-human chorionic g...

The clinical outcome study of dysferlinopathy (COS) is an international natural history study that recruited 197 patients with genetically confirmed dysferlinopathy. In the study 11 women reported a pregnancy in the last 12 months prior to or during the study. A total of 16 pregnancies with 10 live deliveries and 6 miscarriages were recorded at study visits. Delivery was by C-section with regional anaesthesia in half of cases. There were no major delivery problems or medical concerns with the neonates.

The evolutionary initiation of the appearance in lymphomyeloid tissue of the hemopoietic stem cell in the earliest (most primitive) vertebrate model,i.e. the elasmobranch (chondroichthyan)Torpedo marmorata Risso, has been studied. The three consecutive developmental stages of torpedo embryos were obtained by cesarean section from a total of six pregnant torpedoes. Lymphomyeloid tissue was identified in the Leydig organ and epigonal tissue. The sections were treated with monoclonal anti-CD34 and anti-CD38 antibodies to detect hematopoietic stem cells. At stage I (2-cm-long embryos with external gills) and at stage II (3-4 c...

CONCLUSIONS: Due to extreme rarity of pheochromocytoma in pregnancy, its impact on the mother and the fetus remains poorly understood. Official guidelines for treatment are not established, which, combined with the complex nature of the disease itself, demands a multidisciplinary and individualized approach.

CONCLUSION: The rate of change in prescriptions was comparable between AS patients with and without delivery. There was no association between the method of delivery and change in prescription. Therefore, pregnancy and VD may not be the factors associated with AS worsening. PMID: 31559710 [PubMed - in process]
