Abstract Background: The improvement in surgical techniques has contributed to an increasing number of childbearing women with complex congenital heart disease (CCC). However, adequate counseling about pregnancy in this situation is uncertain, due to a wide variety of residual cardiac lesions. Objectives: To evaluate fetal and maternal outcomes in pregnant women with CCC and to analyze the predictive variables of prognosis. Methods: During 10 years we followed 435 consecutive pregnancies in patients (pts) with congenital heart disease. Among of them, we selected 42 pregnancies in 40 (mean age of 25.5 ± 4.5 years) pt...

Primary CMV infection during pregnancy carries a high risk of transmission to the fetus with the potential for severe sequelae including fetal death, premature birth, hearing loss and developmental delay. There is no universally accepted method of preventing congenital CMV. Our objective was to evaluate whether CMV hyperimmune globulin (HIG) administered to women with primary CMV during pregnancy reduces congenital infection.

Publication date: Available online 25 November 2019Source: Regional Science and Urban EconomicsAuthor(s): Rania Gihleb, Osea Giuntella, Ning ZhangAbstractOver the last two decades, the number of delivering mothers using or dependent on opiates has increased dramatically, giving rise to a five-fold increase in the proportion of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). First, the current study documents NAS trends in the United States and their substantial variation across states. Second, it explores the relationship, if any, between the adoption of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) and reductions in ...

Vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy (VBEP) is a common presentation to the emergency department. Between 1993 and 2003, there were greater than 500,000 emergency department (ED) visits per year in the United States.[1] Within the first trimester , 20- 40 % of women experience an episode of vaginal bleeding.[1]Persistent bleeding is associated with negative outcomes including spontaneous abortion, low birth weight, stillbirth, prenatal death, and premature birth.[1,2]

Asthma is a heterogeneous disease with risk factors inclusive of intrinsic (genetic predisposition) and extrinsic variables (environmental exposures) in early life. Studies have postulated towards probable adverse effects on maternal and child health owing to asthmatic status of the mother and in utero exposure to smoke.The ELFE cohort aimed to describe the characteristics of asthmatic and smoking mothers and compare them to non smoking non asthmatic mothers.16,030 mothers and infants were enrolled from the general population in 2011. Interviews were conducted for collection of the variables. A descriptive analysis followe...

This study investigates the influence of maternal age on birth procedure, gestational age, and rate of interventions during delivery. The influence of maternal parity is also analyzed. Material and Methods Data from the Austrian Register of Births was retrospectively collected and evaluated. The collected data was the data of all singleton live births in Austria between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2016 (n = 686 272). Multiple births and stillbirths were excluded from the study. Maternal age and parity were analyzed in relation to predefined variables (birth procedure, gestational age, episiotomy in cas...
