Complication rates following rotational forceps delivery ‘low’

The short-term rates of neonatal and maternal complications following successful Kielland’s rotational forceps delivery are low and comparable with other forms of delivery, and lower than those seen with cesarean delivery, say UK investigators.

Manual rotation can be performed using either a whole-hand or digital approach. Manual rotation should be formally taught, trainees should be assessed for competence, and later performance should ideally be tracked with statistical control charts. There i...

We present obstetric data from a level I (basic care) hospital in Frankfurt, Germany. We compare data from the mandatory state register collected in 2013, when the obstetric unit was under single management with the gynaecology department, with data collected in 2016 after the establishment of independent obstetric unit and a specialised service. RESULTS: Between 2013 and 2016, the birth rate in our hospital increased by 46.4%, from 803 to 1176 births/year. CS rates decreased by 8.9%, from 34.9 to 26% (p

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the association of short-term variation (STV) and Doppler parameters with adverse perinatal outcome in low-risk fetuses at term.MethodsThis was a retrospective study of 1008 appropriate –for-gestational age (AGA) term fetuses. Doppler measurements [umbilical artery (UA), middle cerebral artery (MCA), and cerebroplacental ratio (CPR)] and computerized CTG (cCTG) with STV analysis were performed prior to active labor (≤ 4 cm cervical dilatation) within 72 h of delivery. The a ssociation between Doppler indices and STV values with adverse perinatal outcome was analyzed us...

The β-carotene was quantified using RP-HPLC at bimonthly intervals for a period of six months. The β-carotene concentration in the genotypes analyzed ranged from 7.13 to 22.81 µg/g of endosperm. The transgene being the same in all the genotypes, variation in the &...

Abstract The literature suggests that cesarean delivery or birth is carried out more often in pregnant women with epilepsy (WWE) than in pregnant women in the general population. Data were utilized from the Australian Pregnancy Register (APR) for Women on Antiepileptic Medication to investigate this issue in Australia. Over almost two decades, the mean CS rate in 1900 APR women was 39.2%, but was only 29.9% in women in the general population (relative risk (R.R.) = 1.31, 95% confidence interval (C.I.) 1.24, 1.39). Rates for forceps and suction-assisted delivery were similar in the two datasets. The 9.3% excess...
