Comparison of different methods of measuring angle of progression in the prediction of labor outcome.

CONCLUSIONS: First, the method of measuring AOP with greatest reliability is the manual para-sagittal technique and future research should focus on this technique, second, over half of the variation in time to vaginal delivery can be explained by a model that combines maternal factors, pregnancy characteristics and ultrasound findings, and third, the ability of AOP to provide clinically useful prediction CS for FTP in the first stage of labour is limited.

ConclusionsThe performance of the Danish national screening program for SGA based on selective EFWus on clinical indication have improved considerably over the last 20 years. Limitations of the program are the large proportion of women referred to ultrasound scan and the low performance post ‐term.

Conclusion Although TVS is useful for screening for induction failure, this tool should not be used as an indication for cesarean section.Resumo Objetivo Nem sempre a indu ção do parto termina emparto vaginal, expondo tanto a mãe quanto o feto aos riscos inerentes ao procedimento de indução, ou a uma possível cesárea. A ultrassonografia transvaginal (UTV) semostrou interessante instrumento na predição da prematuridade e, neste estudo, utilizamos este instrume nto na situação inversa: indução do parto no pós-datismo. Mét...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The Hypertension and Preeclampsia Intervention Trial At near Term-I (HYPITAT-I) randomized controlled trial showed that, in women with gestational hypertension or mild pre-eclampsia at term, induction of labor, compared with expectant management, was associated with improved maternal outcome without compromising neonatal outcome. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the impact of these findings on obstetric management and maternal and perinatal outcomes in The Netherlands. METHODS: We retrieved data for the period 2000-2014 from the Dutch National Perinatal Registry, including 143&...

This study aimed to investigate induced labor, cesarean delivery, and health care utilization in patients with a previous stillbirth and assess if anxiety and dread of childbirth may be possible causes of the increased cesarean rate and increased frequency of antenatal visits.

ConclusionLow CPR, measured within 24 hours of induction of labor, is associated with increased risk of cesarean section for fetal distress and adverse neonatal outcome, but the performance of CPR for such surrogates of adverse perinatal outcome is poor.This article is protected by copyright.

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.
