Association Between First-Trimester Subchorionic Hematomas and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes After 20 Weeks of Gestation in Singleton Pregnancies.

Association Between First-Trimester Subchorionic Hematomas and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes After 20 Weeks of Gestation in Singleton Pregnancies. Obstet Gynecol. 2019 Sep 10;: Authors: Naert MN, Muniz Rodriguez A, Khadraoui H, Naqvi M, Fox NS Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the association of first-trimester subchorionic hematomas with pregnancy outcomes after 20 weeks of gestation in women with singleton pregnancies. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all women with singleton pregnancies presenting for prenatal care before 14 weeks of gestation over a 3-year period at a single obstetric practice. All patients underwent routine first-trimester ultrasound examinations. We compared rates of adverse pregnancy outcomes at more than 20 weeks of gestation in women with and without a subchorionic hematoma on the initial ultrasound examination, excluding women with pregnancy loss before 20 weeks of gestation. RESULTS: From January 2015 to December 2017, a total of 2,172 women met the inclusion criteria for the study, 389 (17.9%) of whom had a subchorionic hematoma (mean largest diameter 2.1±1.4 cm). Women with subchorionic hematomas had their first ultrasound examination at earlier gestational ages (8 5/7 vs 9 6/7 weeks, P

AbstractIntroductionMidwife ‐led models of care have been subject of debate for many years. We conducted a study to compare intrapartum and neonatal mortality rates in midwife‐led (primary) versus obstetrician‐led (secondary) care at the onset of labour in low risk term women.Material and methodsWe performed an unmatched and a propensity score matched cohort study using data from the national perinatal audit registry (PAN) and from the national perinatal registry (PERINED) of the Netherlands. We included women with singleton pregnancies (without congenital anomalies or antepartum fetal death) who gave birth at term b...

ConclusionHT associated with post-partum AKF is relatively frequent, secondary to HELLP syndrome and tubular necrosis. The prognosis depends on the early diagnosis and treatment and on the preventive measures during the pregnancy (self-measurement of blood pressure monitoring or ambulatory measurement of blood pressure, screening for proteinuria and uric acid analysis).

When a woman is denied access to an abortion, research has shown that she may face threats to her mental or financial well-being. A new study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, suggests her physical health may suffer, too. “There’s a good deal of research that shows, in the short term, having an abortion is much safer than childbirth, but there isn’t much research over the long-term,” says study co-author Lauren Ralph, an assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. “Our study demonstrates that having an abo...

CONCLUSION: Pregnancy could be maintained by the introduction of targeted therapy rather more safely than the previous era in the case of maintenance of pregnancy. Intensive care and a multidisciplinary team approach can possibly improve the outcomes of the pregnant women with PAH and their babies. However, pregnancy in patients with PAH is still strongly prohibited and it can be tried in expert center where there has sufficient multidisciplinary team approach in case of inevitability.

In this study, we reviewed major human studies on the health risks of radiation exposure and showed that sex-related factors may potentially influence the long-term response to radiation exposure. Available data suggest that long-term radiosensitivity in women is higher than that in men who receive a comparable dose of radiation. The report on the biological effects of ionizing radiation (BEIR VII) published in 2006 by the National Academy of Sciences, United States emphasized that women may be at significantly greater risk of suffering and dying from radiation-induced cancer than men exposed to the same dose of radiation....

Conclusion: In ischemic stroke or TIA patients with platelet count within normal range, platelet count may be a qualified predictor for long-term recurrent stroke, mortality, and poor functional outcome. Introduction Platelets exert a critical role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic complications of cardio-cerebrovascular disease, contributing to thrombus formation, and embolism (1, 2). Previous literature reported that platelets of various size and density are produced by megakaryocytes of different size and stages of maturation in different clinical conditions, suggesting various platelet patterns in differen...

CONCLUSIONS: Although the data appeared to show that active management reduced the risk of severe primary PPH greater than 1000 mL at the time of birth, we are uncertain of this finding because of the very low-quality evidence. Active management may reduce the incidence of maternal anaemia (Hb less than 9 g/dL) following birth, but harms such as postnatal hypertension, pain and return to hospital due to bleeding were identified.In women at low risk of excessive bleeding, it is uncertain whether there was a difference between active and expectant management for severe PPH or maternal Hb less than 9 g/dL (at 24 to 72 hours)....

ConclusionPreterm cesarean delivery increases the risk of maternal bleeding. This should be considered especially in the setting of early preterm birth.

Which drug is best for reducing excessive blood loss after birth?The aim of thisCochrane Review was to find out which drug is most effective in preventing excessive blood loss at childbirth and has the least side effects. The authors collected and analysed all the relevant studies to answer this question.The review ’s lead author Dr Ioannis Gallos from the University of Birmingham explains, “Bleeding after birth is the most common reason why mothers die in childbirth worldwide. Although most women will have moderate bleeding at birth, others may bleed excessively, and this can pose a serious risk to their healt...

CONCLUSIONS:Clinical and molecular characterization of the first 5 Hungarian cases with ADAMTS13 mutations was presented. Compound heterozygous, damaging ADAMTS13 mutations with deficient plasma ADAMTS13 activity were associated with serious clinical consequences. In case of thrombotic microangiopathy in young patients with stroke, or HELLP syndrome, complete workup for ADAMTS13 activity and inhibitors is necessary, and genetic analysis should be considered. Three new ADAMTS13 mutations (c.1016_1017delCA, c.3199T>A , c.2839C>T) were identified and shown to be associated with decreased plasma ADAMTS13 activity.Disclos...
