CMAJ. 2022 Jan 10;194(1):E1-E12. doi: 10.1503/cmaj.210841.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Operative vaginal delivery (OVD) is considered safe if carried out by trained personnel. However, opportunities for training in OVD have declined and, given these shifts in practice, the safety of OVD is unknown. We estimated incidence rates of trauma following OVD in Canada, and quantified variation in trauma rates by instrument, region, level of obstetric care and institutional OVD volume.METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of all singleton, term deliveries in Canada between April 2013 and March 2019, excluding Quebec. Our main outcome measure...

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1740566Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most dreaded complication, and the main cause of death, in patients with congenital bleeding disorders. ICH can occur in all congenital bleeding disorders, ranging from mild, like some platelet function disorders, to severe disorders such as hemophilia A, which can cause catastrophic hemorrhage. While extremely rare in mild bleeding disorders, ICH is common in severe coagulation factor (F) XIII deficiency. ICH can be spontaneous or trauma-related. Spontaneous ICH occurs more often in adults, while trauma-related ICH is more prevalent in ch...

CONCLUSION: Operative vaginal delivery, central nervous system infections in infancy, neonatal hospital admissions, and unknown maternal education status were found to be significant determinants for cerebral palsy. This knowledge aids focused hospital and regional health bureau development and implementation of prevention strategies for cerebral palsy, besides improvement of obstetric and neonatal healthcare services, and provides baseline data to the scientific community for further research.PMID:34966561 | PMC:PMC8712143 | DOI:10.1155/2021/9993912
