Effect of supervised group exercise on psychological well ‐being among pregnant women with or at high risk of depression (the EWE Study): A randomized controlled trial
ConclusionsSupervised group exercise did not improve psychological well ‐being for women with or at high risk of depression at 29‐34 weeks of gestation. Eight weeks postpartum the intervention group reported significantly higher psychological well‐being than the control group. Based on our results, supervised exercise in groups is a safe complementary course of t reatment alongside the existing antenatal care. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

Bradycardia ‐to‐delivery interval and fetal outcomes in umbilical cord prolapse
AbstractIntroductionUmbilical cord prolapse is a major obstetric emergency associated with significant perinatal complications. However, there is no consensus on the optimal decision ‐to‐delivery interval, as many previous studies have shown poor correlation between the interval and umbilical cord arterial blood gas or perinatal outcomes. We aim to investigate whether bradycardia‐to‐delivery or decision‐to‐delivery interval was related to poor cord arterial pH or adv erse perinatal outcome in umbilical cord prolapse.Material and methodsThis was a retrospective study conducted at a university tertiary obstetric ...

Soluble fms ‐like tyrosine kinase to placental growth factor ratio in different stages of early‐onset fetal growth restriction and small for gestational age
AbstractIntroductionIncreased soluble fms ‐like tyrosine kinase to placental growth factor ratio (sFlt‐1/PlGF) has been demonstrated in early‐onset fetal growth restriction (FGR) and small for gestational age (SGA). sFlt‐1/PlGF cut‐offs have been described to assess preeclampsia severity; however, sFlt‐1/PlGF values present in e arly‐onset SGA and different FGR severity stages remain unknown. Hence, the objective of this study was to describe and compare the sFlt‐1/PlGF values and pregnancy outcomes among early‐onset SGA/FGR stages.Material and methodsThis is a prospective case ‐control study conducted ...

Association of traction force and adverse neonatal outcome in vacuum ‐assisted vaginal delivery: A prospective cohort study
AbstractIntroductionTraction force is a possible risk factor for adverse neonatal outcome in vacuum extraction delivery, but the knowledge is scarce and further investigation is needed. Our hypothesis was that high ‐level traction force increases the risk of admission to the neonatal intensive care unit.Material and methodsThe study was a hospital ‐based prospective cohort study on low‐ and mid‐vacuum extractions at the labor and delivery ward, Karolinska University Hospital, Huddinge, Sweden. Traction forces were measured in 331 women. An electronical handle was used to measure and register traction force. The mai...

The cytokine profile of menstrual blood
This study aimed to determine the cytokine profile in menstrual blood plasma and investigate the differences in cytokine profiles between menstrual and peripheral blood plasma. Several previous studies indicate an improved chance of embryo implantation after endometrial scratching. Consequently, our secondary aim was to compare the menstrual blood cytokine profile before and after luteal phase endometrial scratching.Material and methods19 healthy donors collected menstrual blood for the first 24 hours of menstruation in two sequential cycles. Matched peripheral blood was taken at the same time. An endometrial biopsy was pe...

Cesarean delivery after non ‐medically indicated induction of labor: a population based study using different definitions of expectant management
ABSTRACTIntroductionMost observational studies found that non ‐medically indicated induction of labor (IOL) is not associated with an increased risk of cesarean delivery compared with expectant management, defined as all births at a later gestation. However, given the higher rate of cesarean delivery at late term this definition of the expectant management g roup might bias the results of observational studies in favor of IOL at early or full term when estimating the risk of short‐term (e.g. up to one week) expectant management.Material and MethodsWe conducted a retrospective cohort study including 447,066 singleton te...

Inadequate iodine intake in lactating women in Sweden: a pilot 1 ‐year, prospective, observational study
AbstractIntroductionBreastfed infants depend on breastmilk iodine for growth and brain development, as iodine is a trace element important for the thyroid hormone production. Iodine need is higher during lactation; hence, mothers and children are at risk of iodine deficiency. We aimed to explore maternal iodine and thyroidal status during lactation.Material and methodsPregnant women were recruited in G öteborg, south‐west of Sweden. Maternal urine and serum were collected at pregnancy week 35–37 (n = 84) and 0.5, 4, and 12 months postpartum. Seventy mothers provided breastmilk at 0.5 months.ResultsMedian (inte...

Intraabdominal pressure and its relationship with organ dysfunction in patients scheduled for elective cesarean section: Effect of supine vs left lateral tilt position
AbstractIntroductionIntraabdominal pressure (IAP) is related to clinical outcome of patients. It is measured as intravesical pressure through a Foley catheter in the supine position. During pregnancy, there are data showing elevated IAP and also a suggestion that it may be a false increase due to pressure on the urinary bladder by the gravid uterus in the supine position. Additionally, it is not known whether the elevated IAP during pregnancy is merely a physiological change or is associated with impairment of organ functions. We thus aimed to establish a normal value of IAP in supine (IAPsupine) as well as 10 ° left l...

Temporizing management versus immediate delivery in early ‐onset severe preeclampsia between 28 and 34 weeks of gestation (TOTEM study): an open‐label randomized controlled trial
