J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 Jun 10:1-10. doi: 10.1080/01443615.2021.1904217. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInfertility is considered globally to be a stressful and hard experience that affects the couples psychologically, socially and individually. The aim of this study was to systematically review the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) on depression, stress and anxiety in infertile couples. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, databases were searched up to August 2019. Twelve articles were included in the meta-analysis and analysed with Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (CMA) v2. The results of pooled stud...

A 5-gene DNA methylation signature is a promising prognostic biomarker for early-stage cervical cancer
This study constructed a risk model based on a 5-DNA methylation signature for early-stage CC patients' survival prediction.What the implications are of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Methylated markers have the potential to discriminate patients of different risks and different OS. Our results may shed new light on the early diagnosis and intervention, and potential therapeutic targets for CC patients at pathological stages IA-IIA.PMID:34082663 | DOI:10.1080/01443615.2021.1907563 (Source: Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology)

Ultrasound analysis of the effect of second delivery on pelvic floor function in Chinese women
This study analysed the impact of different delivery modes on Chinese female pelvic floor function. Parous women who underwent different modes of second delivery all demonstrated different degrees of pelvic organ prolapse, as well as pelvic floor function decline.What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Our study will provide basic research of Chinese female pelvic floor function after a second delivery, which will be of clinical significance around the world, as well as in China. China will keep promoting further delivery as the aging population is increasing. If the devel...

Aberrant right subclavian artery: the association with chromosomal defects and the related post-natal outcomes in a third level referral centre
This study confirms known data on association with chromosomal defects and provides some original data on the absence of symptomatology due to tracheal compression with a postnatal follow-up up to three years of age.What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Our findings suggest that in cases with adequate prenatal assessment performed by experienced clinicians, delivery can safely take place at local hospitals, with no need of referral soon after birth.

J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 May 21:1-7. doi: 10.1080/01443615.2021.1904225. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to assess the effect of vaginal pH on efficacy of intracervical dinoprostone gel (PGE2) for labour induction, progression and induction delivery interval. A cross-sectional study was done among 150 term pregnant women planned for induction with unfavourable Bishop's score ≤5. Women were categorised into two groups based on vaginal pH>4.5 and ≤4.5. Induction was done with maximum of three doses of PGE2 based on Bishop's score, followed by oxytocin administration. Failed induction rate ...

Ovulation induction with clomiphene citrate or letrozole following laparoscopy in infertile women with minimal to mild endometriosis: a prospective randomised controlled trial
J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 May 21:1-6. doi: 10.1080/01443615.2021.1904224. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWe conducted a prospective randomised controlled trial to explore the efficacy of clomiphene citrate (CC) and Letrozole (LTZ) for improving fecundity in infertile women with minimal to mild endometriosis after operative laparoscopy. We found that the ovulation rate of LTZ (88.7%) and CC (84.5%) were significantly higher than that of Control (70.5%) (p

Alteration of vaginal microbiota in patients with recurrent miscarriage
J Obstet Gynaecol. 2021 May 21:1-8. doi: 10.1080/01443615.2021.1904851. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe aim of this study was to characterise the structure of vaginal microbiota in unexplained recurrent miscarriage (RM). The vaginal bacterial communities of 16 patients with RM and 20 healthy volunteers were sampled. Then, the microbiomes of bacterial profiles of RM patients and healthy volunteers were compared by sequencing the V3-V4 regions of the bacterial 16S ribosomal RNA gene using the Illumina MiSeq platform (Illumina, San Diego, CA). Taxonomic analysis demonstrated that abundance of Lactobacillus and Gardnerella w...
