Comparative evaluation of normal saline, 1/3-2/3, and ringer's lactate infusion on labour outcome, PH, bilirubin, and glucose level of the umbilical cord blood in nulliparous women with labour induction: a randomised clinical trial
This study aimed to compare the effects of infusion of normal saline, 1/3-2/3, and Ringer's lactate fluids on labour outcome, pH, bilirubin, and glucose level of umbilical cord blood. In this randomised clinical trial, 450 nulliparous women with Bishop score ˂5 and indication of pregnancy termination were randomly divided into three groups to receive normal saline, 1/3-2/3, or Ringer's lactate infusion at a rate of 125 mL/h for hydration, upon starting induction of labour. Results of this study indicated that the incidence of hypoglycaemia (p = .19), hyper bilirubinemia (p = .87) and acidosis (p = .10) was similar in neon...

Factors that affect survival in vaginal cancer: a seer analysis
This study aimed to investigate the factors that affect survival in vaginal cancer by means of a large population-based database that had been monitored over a 42 year period (1975-2017). It was investigated which factors were most predictive in survival. This study evaluated the factors that affect survival in primary vaginal cancer as one of the rarest gynaecological cancers. Relationships were explored between survival and age and race of patient, in situ/invasive behaviour of tumour, histological type, stage, grade, surgical treatment, and year of diagnosis. Survival rate was found to be higher at younger ages and earl...

Ten-year surgical complications and mesh erosion of transvaginal Elevate ™ mesh for management of pelvic organ prolapse
This study aims to review the surgical complications and mesh erosion with a cohort of patients who underwent Elevate™ mesh repair. This was a single-centre, retrospective study of women undergoing Elevate™ mesh reconstruction between 2006 and 2016. Women who presented with symptomatic prolapse of stage II or above were enrolled. The study outcomes were intra-operative and peri-operative complications (including mesh complications) at six weeks, one year and five years reporting with a standardised communicable method-the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA)/International Continence Society (ICS) scale and...
