ConclusionPLO is a very rare type of osteoporosis associated with severe chronic back pain. Increased bone resorption significantly increases the risk of bone fractures in women with PLO. Early diagnosis, stopping breastfeeding, treatment of calcium and vitamin D, bisphosphonates, or other antiosteoporosis medicine and regular follow-ups of these cases are particularly important in the prevention of fractures and to increase the quality of life of patients.

Abstract Fetal shoulder dystocia (FSD) is an unpredictable and critical obstetric intrapartum emergency, where an objective problem is the relationship between the mother's pelvis and the child, i. e., an anthropometric disorder of delivery mechanics and dynamics.

FSD is certainly the most controversial forensic obstetric problem, with the most disputes, compensation for damages due to peripartum injury to the child and/or mother, pa...
