Does placental abruption cause neonatal anemia?
ConclusionsWith this study, we found that the hemoglobin levels of the neonates born after placental abruption are comparable to the reference curve and do not show more neonates than expected below the fifth percentile for gestational age. It remains unclear whether there is fetal blood loss during a placental abruption but our results suggest that at least a big amount of fetal blood is not lost, since we did not found a large number of anemic neonates. Severe neonatal anemia in the case of placental abruption does not need to be expected. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

Top ‐quality embryo transfer is associated with lower odds of ectopic pregnancy
ConclusionsTransfer of non-top quality embryos is associated with a higher rate of ectopic pregnancy. This is particularly important to keep in mind in treatments with only non-top embryos available even in the absence of tubal factor infertility. To minimize the risk of ectopic pregnancy, the number of embryos transferred should be as low as possible. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

Detailed classification of second ‐degree perineal tears in the delivery ward: an inter‐rater agreement study
ConclusionsThe inter-rater agreement among midwives using both the RCOG classification and the detailed classification system among midwives was good to very good. The detailed classification system provides additional information about the extent of tissue trauma in second-degree tears, warranted for future research on women's pelvic floor health postpartum.

A walk ‐in clinic as an alternative approach to reaching non‐attenders of the cervical cancer screening program in the North Denmark region—a pilot study
ConclusionsWomen attending the walk-in clinic tended to be primarily actively working or students (91%). All age groups in the screening population were represented. Screening history showed that 44.6% had not followed the recommended screening program. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

Endometriosis in women undergoing ovarian tissue transplantation due to premature menopause after gonadotoxic treatment or spontaneous premature ovarian failure
ConclusionsThis study highlights the under-researched association between endometriosis in women entering premature or early menopause either after gonadotoxic treatment or due to primary ovarian insufficiency. As more and more patients seek to have their cryopreserved ovarian tissue transplanted to fulfill their desire to have children, specialists will inevitably encounter women with this condition.
