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.

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...

The objectives were to examine pregnancy outcomes in adolescent primigravida and to determine the effects of adolescent pregnancy on pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). A retrospective analysis of pregnancy outcomes was carried out in 2440 adolescent primigravida, compared with 14,259 primigravida aged 20-29 years. The adolescents had significantly higher rates of maternal death, maternal heart disease, PIH, puerperal infection, chorioamnionitis, urinary tract infection, foetal anomaly, preterm delivery, low birth weight, low Apgar scores and stillbirth. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that both old...
