Efficacy comparison of titrated oral solution of misoprostol and intravenous oxytocin on labour induction in women with full-term pregnancy. J Obstet Gynaecol. 2019 Jun 14;:1-5 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 neonatal weight. The number of deliveries in the first 24 hours was greater in the misoprostol group. Duration of onset of intervention to proper contractions was longer in the misoprostol group. However, the number of deliveries between 6-12 hours, 12-18 hours and 18-24 hours after induction was greater in the misoprostol group. The incidence of tachysystole and meconium was greater in the misoprostol group. Impact statement What is already known on this subject? Labour induction is widely used where the continuation of pregnancy might be dangerous for the mother or the baby. Of the various methods used for induction, misoprostol which is a pro...

This article presents recommendations of the Polish Psychiatric Association regarding approach to pregnancy loss and unsuccessful in vitro treatment of infertility. From the psychological perspective pregnancy loss and perinatal death are amongst the most stressful events in human life - carrying increased risk of developing affective, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorders. Psychologists, physicians and the rest of the medical staff should provide integrated and individualized care which should be based on respect, empathy and expertise. The necessary phases of support for women experiencing pregnancy loss are: (1) ph...

ConclusionsWe investigated an unusual case of severe septated nuchal cystic hygroma associated with bilateral syndactyly of the fingers and toes in a stillborn infant with Turner syndrome. Although cystic hygroma has been frequently reported in 45,X the severity is marked in this case. In addition, syndactyly is not a typical complication of Turner syndrome. This case emphasizes the importance of early ultrasound in pregnancy.

CONCLUSION: A long cervix in the third trimester is not associated with a prolonged first stage of labor. Induction of labor and multiparity were associated with a shorter first stage of labor while hypertension was associated with a longer duration of labor.

In Reply The Letter to the Editor by Pitocco et al states that the study by Kong et al on associations between maternal diabetes disorders and offspring being large for gestation age (LGA) and/or preterm birth would have been improved by the consideration of maternal self-reported prepregnancy weight. Indeed, in our study, we stratified the association analyses by self-reported prepregnancy body mass index (BMI) and found that the BMI influenced the association for maternal type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes to the offspring LGA. Pitocco et al also commented that it would have been appropriate to also consider gestat...

CONCLUSION: Substantial variation in clinical practice guidelines for indications for induction exists. As guidelines rated of similar quality presented conflicting recommendations, guideline variability was not explained by guideline quality. Guideline variability may partly account for unexplained variation in induction of labour rates. PMID: 31285166 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractThe findings of the ARRIVE trial (A Randomized Trial of Induction Versus Expectant Management) were recently published. This multisite randomized trial was designed to provide evidence regarding whether labor induction or expectant management is associated with increased adverse perinatal outcomes and risk of cesarean birth among healthy nulliparous women at term. The trial reported that the primary outcome, a composite of adverse neonatal outcomes, was not significantly different between the 2 groups; the principal secondary outcome, cesarean birth, was significantly more common among women whose pregnancy was exp...
