Conclusion: After FGR at term, postnatal catch-up growth is generally present and associated with the degree of FGR. Obstetric management in FGR influences postnatal growth. Longer-term follow up is therefore needed and should be directed at growth and physical health

Publication date: Available online 17 June 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Brynmor A. Summers, Graeme G. FlettAbstractSince the introduction of epidurals for labour analgesia in 1946 it has become the gold standard on delivery units throughout the world. Controversy remains as to the effects of neuraxial block upon the fetus; however, it is now widely accepted that there are beneficial and not just detrimental effects. With the introduction of low-dose anaesthetic solutions the major cardiovascular effects and concerns with toxicity have become much less prominent and the lack of profound mot...

AbstractIntroductionMisoprostol vaginal insert could lead to a significant reduction in the time to vaginal delivery, and an increase in the proportion of women achieving vaginal delivery, compared with dinoprostone vaginal insert. We compared the delivery outcomes of misoprostol 200  μg vaginal insert and dinoprostone 10 mg vaginal insert for induction of labor in women with an unfavorable cervix.Material and methodsThis is a retrospective observational study conducted on a cohort of 220 women with a Bishop score ≤4 admitted for induction of labor at a single institution. Of these, 109 (49.5%) received the...

Abstract Seeing is believing. The direct observation of GFP-Atg8 vacuolar delivery under confocal microscopy is one of the most useful end-point measurements for monitoring yeast macroautophagy/autophagy. However, manually labelling individual cells from large-scale sets of images is time-consuming and labor-intensive, which has greatly hampered its extensive use in functional screens. Herein, we conducted a time-course analysis of nitrogen starvation-induced autophagy in wild-type and knockout mutants of 35 AuTophaGy-related (ATG) genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and obtained 1,944 confocal images containing>...

Authors: Kashanian M, Eshraghi N, Rahimi M, Sheikhansari N, Javanmanesh F Abstract A double-blind randomised trial was conducted on women with gestational age of 40-42 weeks of pregnancy and Bishop score of more than 5. The first group received oxytocin infusion and the second group received a titrated oral solution of misoprostol. Then, the two groups were compared by the primary outcome (the number of deliveries in the first 24 hours of intervention). The two groups did not have any significant difference in maternal and gestational age at the time of intervention, primary Bishop score, parity and n...

There has been a rise in induction of labour over recent decades. There is some tension in the literature in relation to when induction is warranted and when not, with variability between guidelines and practice. Given these tensions, the importance of shared decision-making between clinicians and women is increasingly highlighted as paramount, but it remains unclear to what extent this occurs in routine care.
