Menstrual pain and sexual health in mothers —A cross‐sectional study in the Danish National Birth Cohort
ConclusionsA majority of Danish mothers in mid-life experienced menstrual pain, and these women more often reported reduced sexual desire, vaginismus, and deep dyspareunia. Few women sought and received treatment for menstrual pain. Healthcare practitioners should be aware that menstrual pain can affect parous women and co-occurs with sexual problems. Future studies should identify barriers to seeking and receiving adequate treatment for menstrual pain. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

This study examines the effects of intrapartum fentanyl given intravenously (IV) or through epidural analgesia (EDA) on early breastfeeding.Material and methodsThis is a prospective observational study conducted in a regional maternity unit. We included 1101 healthy mothers of term singleton babies in vertex presentation born between 2016 and 2018 (468 nulliparous and 633 multiparous). The main data were collected prospectively, and additional data were retrieved from hospital records. The main outcome measures were exclusive breastfeeding at discharge, spontaneous suckling, and breastfeeding problems after birth. We asses...

Comparing risk of repeat surgery for stress urinary incontinence after mid ‐urethral slings and polyacrylamide hydrogel
AbstractIntroductionOver the last two decades synthetic mid-urethral slings (MUS) have become established as the main surgical method for correcting stress urinary incontinence (SUI). However, transurethral injections with polyacrylamide hydrogel are gaining popularity. We used surgical codes from a national registry to explore potential differences in risk of later surgery for SUI comparing retropubic slings, obturator slings, and polyacrylamide hydrogel injections.Material and methodsThis cohort study used surgical codes from The Norwegian Patient Registry. All women recorded as having had surgery for SUI coded as retrop...

The prognostic significance of HPV, p16, and p53 protein expression in vaginal cancer: A systematic review
ConclusionsThis systematic review suggests that women with HPV- and p16-positive vaginal cancer have an improved prognosis compared with those with HPV- or p16-negative vaginal cancer. Results for p53 were varied, and no conclusion could be reached. Only 12 studies could be included in the review, of which most were based on small populations. Hence, further and larger studies on the prognostic impact of HPV, p16, and p53 in vaginal cancer are warranted. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica)

Mental health indicators in pregnant women compared with women in the general population during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic in Denmark
AbstractIntroductionThe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the associated regulations issued to minimize risk of disease transmission seem to have had an impact on general mental health in most populations, but it may have affected pregnant women even more because of pregnancy-related uncertainties, limited access to healthcare resources, and lack of social support. We aimed to compare the mental health response among pregnant women with that in similarly aged women from the general population during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.Material and methodsFrom April 14 to July 3, 2020, 647 pregnant women ...

Can time to menopause be predicted?
AbstractMenopause represents the definite end of a woman ’s reproductive life and the onset of a persistent hypoestrogenic state. This postmenopausal period will for most women last several decades. Although mean menopausal age seems to have increased somewhat during the last century, there is a significant individual variation in age at natural menopau se. With efficient contraception, women of reproductive age can now, to some extent, choose when they want to have children. As a consequence of this and other sociodemographic changes, age at first birth has increased significantly over the last 50 years. It is ...

The use of functional placental magnetic resonance imaging for assessment of the placenta after prolonged preterm rupture of the membranes in vivo: A pilot study
ConclusionsThis first exploration of functional placental assessment in a cohort of women with PPROM demonstrates that functional placental MRI can reveal a range of placental changes associated with inflammatory processes. It is a promising tool to gain information and in the future to identify inflammation in vivo, and could therefore assist in improving optimal timing for interventions designed to prevent fetal injury.

Uterine artery closure at the origin vs at the uterus level in total laparoscopic hysterectomy: A randomized controlled trial
AbstractIntroductionThe transfusion rate in hysterectomies for benign pathology is almost 3%. However, despite the strong interest in reducing intraoperative bleeding, limited evidence is available regarding the technical aspects concerning uterine vessel management during a total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). Uterine artery (UA) closure in TLH can be performed at the origin from the internal iliac artery or at the uterus level (UL).

Decline in surgeon volume after successful implementation of advanced laparoscopic surgery in gynecology: An undesired side effect?
ConclusionsThe broad implementation of advanced MIS procedures resulted in an increasing number of these procedures with increasing hospital volumes. However, as a side-effect, a disproportionate rise in number of gynecologists performing these procedures was observed. Therefore, surgeon volumes remain low and even decreased for some procedures. Centralization of complex procedures and training of specialized MIS gynecologists could improve surgeon volumes and therefore consequently enhance patient safety.

Uterine leiomyomas in hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC) syndrome can be identified through distinct clinical characteristics and typical morphology
AbstractIntroductionHereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC) constitute a tumor susceptibility syndrome caused by germline mutations in the fumarate hydratase (FH) gene. The most common features are leiomyomas of the uterus and the skin. The syndrome includes a predisposition to early-onset, aggressive renal cell cancer. It is important to identify women with HLRCC among other uterine leiomyoma patients in order to direct them to genetic counseling and to identify other affected family members.Material and methodsWe conducted a nationwide historical study to identify typical clinical characteristics, uterine...

ConclusionsThis study supports the hypothesis that routine NIPS may be used for prenatal diagnosis of unbalanced inheritance of familial translocations, especially with prior knowledge of the translocation allowing focused examination of the involved chromosomal regions.

Use of sildenafil and other phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors among pregnant women in Scandinavia
ConclusionsFew women used PDE5 inhibitors in outpatient settings before or during pregnancy in the Scandinavian countries in the last decades. Only a small proportion had a diagnosis for pulmonary arterial hypertension, suggesting off-label use in the remaining users. Use was predominantly in mothers over age 35  years. The safety of fetal exposure to sildenafil and other PDE5 inhibitors in pregnancy has not been established. As maternal age continues to increase and additional uses of PDE5 inhibitors are investigated, the safety of these drugs in pregnancy should be thoroughly evaluated. (Source: Acta Obstetricia et ...

Vertical transmission of methicillin ‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus at delivery and its clinical impact: An observational, prospective cohort study
ConclusionsThe prevalence of MRSA in pregnant women was approximately 6%. Vertical transmission caused by maternal vaginal MRSA colonization was observed in four of nine cases (44.4%). Although our study includes a limited number of maternal MRSA positive cases, the vertical transmission of MRSA may occur in up to 44% of neonates of mothers with vaginal MRSA colonization. Maternal MRSA colonization may be associated with increased development of skin and soft tissue infections in neonates via vertical transmission.
