Factors Associated with Successful Trial of Labor after Cesarean Section: A Retrospective Cohort Study.

Conclusion: The simple audit system had the greatest impact on the success rate of TOLAC, instead of the less powerful obstetrical factors as reported in previous reports. The audit system is the only potential factor that could be strengthened to improve the success rate. PMID: 29967697 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsBalloon catheter tended to be associated with a higher probability of vaginal delivery as compared to low dose intravenous oxytocin, when used for induction of labor in women with a previous cesarean section and low Bishop score at induction.

Conclusion Labor induction was successful inmost patients. In the cases in which the final outcome was a cesarean section, the most strongly associated factors were: previous history of cesarean delivery, presence of fetuses with IUGR, and either excessively short or excessively long periods of induction.Resumo Objetivo Avaliar os resultados da indu ção de trabalho de parto e determinar os principais fatores associados à realização de cesarianas intraparto em pacientes do Hospital Universitário da Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (HU-UFSC), Florianópolis, SC, Brasil.

CERVICAL RIPENING BALLOON AS A METHOD OF PREINDUCTION - ONE CENTER STUDY. Acta Clin Croat. 2018 Dec;57(4):762-767 Authors: Košec V, Djaković I, Sabolović Rudman S Abstract - Cervical ripening can be promoted in many ways, but mechanical methods are among the oldest. Like all other methods, this one also has its pros and cons. Disadvantages compared to pharmacological methods include some maternal discomfort upon manipulation of the cervix, a theoretical increase in the risk of maternal and neonatal infection from the introduction of a foreign body, potential disruption of a low-lying placenta,...

Conclusion The CS rate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is higher than the global average rate and than the average rate in Asia, which highlights the need for more education of pregnant women and of their physicians in order to promote vaginal birth. A proper planning is needed to reduce the number of CSs in nulliparous women in order to prevent repeated CSs in the future. Monitoring both CS rates and outcomes is essential to ensure that policies, practices, and actions for the optimization of the utilization of CS lead to improved maternal and infant outcomes.

Conclusions: Parents should be counseled in detail about continuation of an anencephalic pregnancy before making their decision. The information about "what an anencephalic pregnancy can lead"' should be given. The redundant cesarean deliveries, polyhydramnios and associated complications, obstetrical hemorrhage risk should be discussed with patients. It should also be emphasized that these maternal risks are for the sake of a non-life expectant baby. PMID: 31019627 [PubMed]

We describe below how metagenomic and nutritional data were integrated into the algorithm in Tobalina et al. (2015). Metagenomic Data From Vallès et al. (2014), we collected 454 pyrosequencing metagenomic data of the gut microbiota of 13 Spanish infants at five different time points during the first year after birth (1 week and 1, 3, 7 months, and 1 year). For the second time point considered (1 month), we only have data for 9 out of 13 infants and, therefore, we have 61 samples overall. Information on sex, type of delivery, antibiotic exposure, and feeding habits for these infants is provided in Supplementary Tab...

Conclusions: In vivo exposure to remifentanil exerts a beneficial effect against excitotoxicity on the developing mouse brain, which is associated with a reduction in the size of ibotenate-induced brain lesion as well as prevention of some behavioral deficits in young mice. The long-term effect of neonatal exposure to remifentanil should be investigated. Introduction The potential neurotoxicity of anesthetics in the perinatal period prompted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to release a drug safety communication warning in 2016 that stated, “repeated or lengthy use of general anesthetics or sedation ...
