Uterine electromyography (EMG) measurements to predict preterm caesarean section in patients with complete placenta previa.

The objective of the study was to evaluate uterine electrical activity (EA) with EMG methods in pregnant women with complete placenta previa with preterm caesarean section (CS). This prospective study included 78 patients with complete placenta previa who were recorded for uterine EA activity from 32 to 34 weeks of gestation. The clinical and the uterine EMG burst characteristics, that are responsible for contractions, were compared between a preterm CS group (case group, n = 33) and an elective control group (control group, n = 45). The uterine EA burst duration was longer in the case group compared with the control group (28.79 ± 3.75 vs 19.35 ± 2.56 s; p

Discussion Pregnancy complications in early pregnancy range from mild to severe. They can include nausea and emesis which often is treated symptomatically, but can cause hyperemesis gravidarum and need hospitalization for intravenous fluids. Mild cramping and slight spotting are not uncommon. Some type of pregnancy bleeding is common with 20-40% of women experiencing it. Women who have early vaginal bleeding have a higher risk of later pregnancy complications. Pregnancy in adolescents is about 10% of all pregnancies. Adolescent pregnancy can be associated with various problems including higher rates of threatened aborti...

Conclusions: Our results suggest that first, natural conception rates could potentially increase with more frequent and well timed intercourse, and second that further work is needed to understand why even in a motivated sample of women monitoring their fertile periods, both the conception and coitus rates were low.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association of increasing body mass index (BMI) on postpartum tubal ligation safety and estimate the rates of procedure complication. METHODS: We conducted a single-institution, retrospective review. Women undergoing postpartum permanent contraception after vaginal delivery from August 2015 to March 2019 were studied. Our primary outcome included a composite morbidity of intraoperative complications (bleeding requiring additional surgery, and extension of incision), blood transfusion, aborted procedure, anesthetic complication, readmission, wound infection, venous thromboem...

Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are highly effective at preventing pregnancy. Levonorgestrel (LNG) IUDs also have beneficial effects on menstrual bleeding and abdominal and pelvic pain. Although there are increasing data on use of IUDs for contraception in adolescents and for medical indications in adults, there are extremely limited data on LNG IUD use for medical indications in adolescents. Our objective is to describe the characteristics and experiences of LNG IUD use in nulliparous adolescents and young women using IUDs for medical indications.

This study will be conducted in Tongji Hospital, Caidian, Wuhan, People ’s Republic of China.Intervention and comparatorThe experimental group will be given the nationally recommended standard medical treatment + ultra-short-wave diathermy treatment. Ultra-short-wave therapy treatment will be performed through application of ultra-short-wave therapy machine electrodes on the anterior and posterior parts of the trunk for 10 minutes, twice a day for 12 consecutive days. The comparator will be the control, not receiving ultra-short-wave therapy, and will be given only the nationally recommended standard medical treatmen...

Conclusion: Short IPI is associated with anemia in pregnancy in Nigeria. Public health campaigns for improvement in uptake of family planning services and breastfeeding may help reduce the incidence of short IPI and anemia in low income countries.

CONCLUSIONS For patients with type II and III CSP, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy surgery and reversible ligation of the uterine artery achieved better clinical outcomes than hysteroscopy or curettage with respect to postoperative recovery. This could be suitable for patients with CSP and desire for fertility. PMID: 32595205 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: There is currently insufficient evidence from RCTs to determine the relative effectiveness and safety of mechanical and surgical interventions for treating primary PPH. High-quality randomised trials are urgently needed, and new emergency consent pathways should facilitate recruitment. The finding that intrauterine tamponade may increase total blood loss> 1000 mL suggests that introducing condom-balloon tamponade into low-resource settings on its own without multi-system quality improvement does not reduce PPH deaths or morbidity. The suggestion that modified B-Lynch suture may be superior to the ...

ConclusionLocal intra-gestational sac methotrexate injection followed by D&C with the aid of a Foley ’s balloon catheter compression appears to be a safe and effective treatment for CSP. Further randomized controlled trials are suggested to confirm these findings.
