Autonomic Nervous System in Preterm Very Low Birth Weight Neonates with Intraventricular Hemorrhage
Conclusion HRV was significantly associated with IVH severity and neurodevelopmental outcome in extremely preterm neonates. HRV can distinguish extremely preterm neonates who subsequently had severe IVH from those who had no/low-grade IVH. HRV may identify extremely preterm neonates needing adjuvant neuroprotective interventions. These findings warrant further investigation in a larger population of extremely preterm neonates.

Dispositional optimism, mode of delivery and labor control among recently-delivered parturients

The effects of cannabis use during pregnancy on low birth weight and preterm birth: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusion: There is an effect of cannabis irrespectively of other illicit drugs and tobacco, despite high heterogeneity and low quality of evidence. There is a need to discuss public policies regarding cannabis’ regulation and how it influences its consumption. Future studies should focus on the effects of cannabis’s type (medicinal or recreational), timing and dosage during pregnancy on perinatal outcomes.

A Trial of labor after caesarean section with a macrosomic neonate. Is it safe?
Conclusion Women attempting TOLAC with a macrosomic neonate are not at increased risk for failed TOLAC, operative vaginal delivery, uterine rupture, PPH, or OASI but are at risk of shoulder dystocia. This information helps counsel women considering TOLAC with a macrosomic fetus.

Clinical Correlates of Moderate to Severe Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia in Preterm Infants following Surgical Necrotizing Enterocolitis
Conclusion: Development of moderate/severe BPD occurred in the majority of preterm infants with surgical NEC in this consecutive series. Preterm infants with moderate/severe BPD were more likely to have a PDA before NEC. Development of moderate/severe BPD was associated with significantly greater burden and duration of post-operative morbidity following surgical NEC. Identifying surgical NEC infants at increased risk of moderate/severe BPD and developing lung protection strategies may improve surgical NEC outcomes.
