Abstract Global estimates for 2017 indicated that there were 295,000 maternal deaths, 35 per cent lower than in 2000 with a decline in global maternal mortality ratio from 342 to 211 deaths per 100,000 live births (World Health Organization (WHO) 2019). Maternal hemorrhage is the leading direct cause of maternal death worldwide, representing 27% (20-36) of maternal deaths ( Say L, et al. Lancet 2014). Multiple large retrospective population cohorts have identified risk factors invariably associated with maternal hemorrhage including mode of delivery, prolonged labor, chorioamnionitis, and twins among others (Brile...

Authors: Morgan N, Christensen K, Skedros G, Kim S, Schliep K Abstract Background: Stress-induced pregnancy complications are thought to represent a significant cause of maternal morbidity and mortality; little is known regarding types of stress most predictive of adverse outcomes.Methods: We used Utah PRAMs 2012-2014 data to evaluate links between preconception life stressors and prevalence of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) and pre-term labor (PTB) (births

This study evaluated the predictive value of longitudinal salivary uric acid measurement.Material and methodsPregnant women (n  = 137) from 20 weeks of gestation were recruited at St Richards Hospital, Chichester, UK, for this prospective cohort study. Weekly samples of salivary uric acid were analyzed until delivery. Information regarding pregnancy and labor were obtained from the patient’s record after delivery. Inde pendentt tests were used to compare mean levels of salivary uric acid in women with hypertensive complications and adverse fetal outcomes with women with normal pregnancies. Main outcome...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) comprises at least two of the following: hyperandrogenism, intermittent or absent menstrual cycles, and polycystic ovaries. It affects 15% −20% of women in their reproductive years, compromising their fertility, fecundity, and cardiometabolic health (1). Assisted reproduction is a common prerequisite for a high conception rate in women with PCOS; but regardless of method of conception, pregnant women are at increased risk for pregnan cy-induced hypertension, preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, spontaneous preterm labor, need for cesarean delivery, and thus severe maternal morbidity.

Abstract Background: Spinal anesthesia-induced maternal hypotension is the most frequent complication associated with maternal morbidity and mortality during Cesarean section. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence and magnitude of hemodynamic changes in preeclamptic and non-preeclamptic parturients undergone Cesarean section under spinal anesthesia. Method: A prospective cohort study was conducted from 01 February to 28 May 2019 in preeclamptic and non-preeclamptic parturients. We hypothesized preeclamptic parturients are at high risk of spinal anesthesia induced hypotension than non preeclamptic...

CONCLUSIONS: Women with placental bed disorders have higher risk for vascular disease. Mechanisms behind the abnormal placentation remain elusive although maternal constitutional factors, abnormal implantation as well as impaired angiogenesis have been suggested.
