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,...

The objective of the study was to explore trial of labor and its failure in pregnancies with medical risk conditions, in a population with a high trial of labor rate.Material and methodsIn a cohort study (n=57  109), using data from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway 1989‐2014, women with a second delivery after a first pregnancy cesarean section were included. Preterm, multiple, and non‐cephalic deliveries were excluded. The outcomes were trial of labor and failed trial of labor, assessed as rates and relative risk, using deliveries without risk conditions as reference. Temporal trends were assessed by three‐...

CONCLUSIONS: Elective induction of labor in uncomplicated singleton pregnancies from 39 weeks' gestation is not associated with maternal or perinatal complications and may reduce the risk of Cesarean section, hypertensive disease of pregnancy and need for neonatal respiratory support.

Beyonce revealed that she experienced toxemia, also known as preeclampsia, while she was pregnant with her twins, Sir and Rumi. The condition left her swollen and put her on bed rest for more than a month. In an interview in the September issue of Vogue, the entertainer said that the condition led to an emergency Cesarean section, which required the twins to spend weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Here’s what you should know about toxemia, aka preeclampsia. What is preeclampsia, and why is it also called toxemia? About 5% of pregnant women will get preeclampsia while expecting — usually toward t...

We report the cases of three pregnant Japanese women definitively diagnosed with LVNC prepregnancy. Case 1 presented LVNC with restrictive phenotype. Her pregnancy was terminated due to exacerbated pulmonary hypertension and low output status at 30 weeks' gestation. Case 2 presented isolated LVNC with nonsustained ventricle tachycardia. A cesarean section was performed at 36 weeks' gestation because of placenta previa. Case 3 presented dilated LVNC. Labor induction was performed because of decreased left ventricular ejection fraction, leading to a vaginal delivery at 37 weeks' gestation. In all cases, no thromboembolic eve...

DISCUSSION: These results emphasize the need for screening and close follow-up of hypertension in pregnancy for safeguarding fetal and maternal wellbeing. Even after practicing the current standard of care, the higher rate of complications associated with PIH is unacceptable. The authors feel that unique management protocols should be implemented for different patient populations, based on ethnicity, lifestyle, and availability of medical resources.

CONCLUSION: Intermittent auscultation is a more cost-effective alternative compared to cardiotocography. However, in the case of legal litigation intermittent auscultation is harder to reconstruct the well-being of the newborn during birth. On the other hand cardiotocography might result in a higher cesarean section rate, but can be more helpful to prove fetal well-being during birth for a legal litigation process. Despite the lack of evidence only German guidelines recommend cardiotocographic monitoring from the late 1st stage of labor for risk-free pregnancies.

Pregnancy is typically contraindicated in Eisenmenger syndrome because of its association with excessively high maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Here, we report on our novel approach to successfully managing a 29 year old pregnant woman with an unrepaired patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with Eisenmenger syndrome through delivery and recovery. Venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was utilized during induction of labor to stabilize maternal hemodynamics and optimize fetal oxygenation by creating an oxygenated right-to-left shunt through the PDA. Delivery ultimately required cesarean section on ECMO...
