Monitoring maternal triglyceride concentrations during pregnancy could be useful in reducing perinatal mortality

AbstractWe read with great interest the article byhttps://obgyn.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/action/doSearch?ContribAuthorStored=Sauvegrain,+PriscilleSauvegrain et al. entitled “Understanding high rates of stillbirth and neonatal death in a disadvantaged, high ‐migrant district in France: a perinatal audit”.1 This well ‐designed study confirmed again that maternal overweight/obesity increases perinatal mortality. We would like to address some points that merit further attention. The intrauterine environment can affect the long‐term health of the offspring has been widely accepted. Maternal high pre‐pregnancy body mass index (BMI) increases the risks of fetal exposure to higher maternal triglyceride levels during the first trimester.

AbstractNoninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) has become a popular screening test for the most common fetal aneuploidies. The performance of NIPT is affected by several factors including maternal obesity, which results in a greater rate of no ‐calls for obese pregnant women. Guidelines regarding NIPT in prenatal screening have been published, but with few and divergent recommendations on the issue. We aimed to review the medical literature, guidelines from scientific societies and information material from commercial NIPT providers on no‐calls and maternal obesity. We systematically identified medical literature and guid...

The objective of this study is to investigate factors associated with risks of perinatal death in a disadvantaged, high ‐migrant French district with mortality rates above the national average.Material and methodsThe study design is a perinatal audit in all 11 maternity units in the Seine ‐Saint‐Denis district in 2014 (25037 births). The data come from medical chart abstraction, maternal interviews and peer‐assessor confidential review of deaths. A representative sample of live births in the same district, from the 2010 French Perinatal Survey, was used for comparisons (N=429). The main outcome measures were stillb...

CONCLUSION: We found that maternal OWOB status is related to fatty liver content in the offspring as young adults, even after taking into account OWOB status and lifestyle factors in the offspring. PMID: 32145139 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsOur novel study setting provided new insights about risk factors: hyperemetic pregnancies differ both from pregnancies of women who had never been diagnosed with hyperemesis and from hyperemetic women's non ‐hyperemetic pregnancies. Incidence of hyperemesis gravidarum in Finland was comparable to other countries.

AbstractIntroductionObese primiparae women with induction of labor are at high risk for a cesarean section. There are contradictory results regarding time in induced labor in relation to maternal body mass index (BMI). It is important to characterize the course of induced labor in order to prevent unnecessary cesarean section. We aimed to evaluate whether the duration of labor was associated with maternal BMI in primiparae women with induction of labor.Material and methodsA national retrospective cohort study, including 15 259 primiparae women with a single term pregnancy, admitted for induction of labor from January 2014 ...

AbstractIntroductionOur aim was to identify risk factors for failed induction in morbidly obese patients undergoing the induction of labor at term.Material and methodsThis was a retrospective multicenter study on a cohort of 235 patients with a body mass index greater than 40 kg/m2 and giving birth to a singleton in cephalic presentation, who had an induction of labor from 38 weeks of amenorrhea. Scheduled caesareans and spontaneous vaginal deliveries were excluded. Maternal, peri ‐partum and neonatal characteristics were analyzed according to the delivery route.ResultsTwo hundred and thirty five patients were included. ...
