The impact of biparental hepatitis B virus infection on pregnancy outcomes in patients undergoing assisted reproductive technology treatment: a systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsPaternal HBV infection alone probably decrease CPR after ART at per cycle level. However, maternal HBV infection was not associated with reductions in CPR and LBR in women undergoing ART at per woman level. (Source: Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics)

Development and psychometric properties of the human papillomavirus-quality of life (HPV-QoL) questionnaire to assess the impact of HPV on women health-related-quality-of-life
ConclusionThis study provides an HPV-QoL questionnaire with an innovative patient-reported outcomes specific measurement tool to assess HRQoL in women with HPV infection. The present study suggests this questionnaire has satisfactory psychometric properties, including validity and reliability. Results support the use of the HPV-QoL questionnaire as a HRQoL measurement instrument for daily medical practice and clinical research. (Source: Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics)

Comparison of intravenous paracetamol infusion versus intramuscular tramadol as labor analgesia: a randomized control trial
ConclusionCompared to IM tramadol, IV paracetamol has a longer duration of action and fewer maternal side effects, making it suitable for parenteral analgesia in labor. Due to a better safety profile, there is no need for intense maternal and fetal monitoring with IV paracetamol.Trial registrationClinical Trials Registry —India (CTRI registration number—CTRI /2019/05/019244).

Prenatal diagnosis of acrania/exencephaly/anencephaly sequence (AEAS): additional structural and genetic anomalies
ConclusionsA significant number of fetuses with AEAS have additional structural non-NTD anomalies, which are mostly consistent with limb body wall complex. Genetic abnormalities are diagnosed in almost 10% of affected fetuses and trisomy 18 is the most common aberration. Factors that significantly increased the odds of genetic anomalies in fetuses with AEAS comprise male sex, limb anomalies and ventral body wall defects.
