Outcomes of monochorionic twin pregnancies complicated by Type-III selective fetal growth restriction.
CONCLUSIONS: In this contemporary cohort from tertiary fetal centers, the risk of fetal death in type III sIUGR was lower than previously reported. Further efforts should be directed at identifying predictors of fetal death and optimal antenatal surveillance strategies to select a cohort of pregnancies that can safely continue beyond 33 weeks of gestation.

Prediction of fetal death in selective growth restriction complicating twin-twin transfusion syndrome using standardized definitions.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: Selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR) complicating twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is associated with 3 to 6 fold increased risk of fetal demise after fetoscopic laser surgery (FLS). Identifying these patients is challenging due to varying definitions used in the literature. Our objective was to determine the association of three currently used definitions for sFGR with demise of the smaller twin, typically the donor, following FLS METHODS: Retrospective cohort of monochorionic diamniotic pregnancies undergoing FLS for TTTS between January 2015 to December 2018. The entire cohort w...

Customized birth-weight centiles and placenta-related fetal growth restriction.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The value of using customized birthweight centiles to improve the diagnostic accuracy for fetal growth restriction (FGR), in comparison with using population-based charts, remains a matter of debate. One potential explanation for the conflicting data is that most studies used measures of perinatal mortality and morbidity as proxies for placenta-mediated FGR. However, many of these outcomes are not specific to placenta-mediated FGR, and may be confounded by other factors such as prematurity. Therefore, it is necessary to validate the benefit of customized birthweight centiles using more specifi...

Meta-analysis and systematic review to determine the optimal imaging modality for the detection of rectosigmoid deep endometriosis.
CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity of transvaginal sonography (TVS) for the detection of DE seems to be slightly better than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), although RES was superior to both. Specificity of both TVS and MRI were excellent. As TVS is the simpler, faster, and more readily available, we believe it should be the first line diagnostic tool for the women with suspected DE.

Determination of fetal heart rate short term variation from umbilical artery Doppler waveforms.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the feasibility of using umbilical artery (UA) Doppler waveforms to measure fetal heart rate short term variation (STV) across gestation. METHODS: A prospective longitudinal study was conducted at two study sites in 195 women with pregnancies considered low risk. Pulsed wave Doppler of the UAs was performed at a 4-weekly interval between 14-40 weeks of gestation using a standardized imaging protocol. Up to 12 consecutive UA Doppler waveforms were analyzed using an off-line processing software. Fetal heart rate STV was calculated using average R-to-R intervals extracted ...

Neither the differentiation between twin-twin transfusion syndrome Stages I and II nor III and IV makes a difference regarding the probability of double survival after laser therapy.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the perinatal outcome according to disease severity in monochorionic twins with twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) who were treated with fetoscopic laser surgery. METHODS: In a single center study fetoscopic laser surgery was performed in 1020 consecutive cases with severe TTTS. During the study period (January 1995 to March 2013) the participants were included at a mean gestational age of 20.8 (SD 2.2) weeks. Perinatal survival data analysis was undertaken (double fetal survival, at least one survivor) according to the Quintero staging system. For blockwise comparisons of da...

Reference ranges for fetal cardiac, ventricular and atrial relative size, sphericity, ventricular dominance, wall asymmetry and relative wall thickness from 18 to 41  weeks of gestation.
CONCLUSIONS: The assessment of cardiac, ventricular and atrial relative size and geometry is feasible and reproducible in the fetus. We provide standardized reference ranges throughout gestation, enabling the accurate assessment of cardiac remodelling patterns during fetal life. The immediate application of these measurements may be in the research field, but they further represent a very useful tool in clinical ultrasonographic evaluation enabling to establish a consensus-based nomenclature for fetal cardiac findings, above all in pathological scenarios and stablishing reference ranges for abnormality detection and monito...

Induction of labor with a Foley catheter and the risk of subsequent preterm birth: A follow-up study of two randomized controlled trials (PROBAAT-1 and -2).
The objective of this study was to evaluate the preterm birth rate in a subsequent pregnancy in women who had undergone term induction with a Foley catheter in comparison to induction with prostaglandins. METHODS: This was a follow-up study of two large randomized controlled trials. In the original trials (PROBAAT-1 and PROBAAT-2), women with a term, singleton pregnancy in cephalic presentation with an indication for labor induction were randomized to either a 30cc Foley catheter or prostaglandins (i.e. vaginal prostaglandin E2 in PROBAAT 1 and oral misoprostol in PROBAAT 2).

Women with advanced pelvic organ prolapse and levator ani muscle avulsion would significantly benefit from the use of mesh repair surgery.
CONCLUSION: Mesh repair surgery, compared with native tissue repair, significantly lowers the objective and subjective recurrence for women with stage III or IV POP by 6-fold and 5-fold. In women also with LAM avulsion, both objective and subjective recurrence reduces by 4-fold. Mesh complications rate was low and could be treated conservatively or by minor surgery. The benefit of mesh surgery for these high risk women appears to outweigh the risks of mesh complications and it could be an option for this group of women. This article is protected by copyright.

Cross-modality and in-vivo validation of 4D flow MRI evaluation of uterine artery blood flow in human pregnancy.
In this study, we seek to further validate the physiologic relevance of 4D flow MRI measures of UtA blood flow rate by exploring their associations with pregnancy outcomes relative to US-based metrics. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 87 singleton pregnant women, enrolled between May 2016 and April 2019, who underwent a 4D flow MRI scan to measure UtA pulsatility index (PI) and blood flow rate (in mL/min). UtA PI was also measured using US. The primary outcome was a composite (COMP) of either preeclampsia (PEC), small for gestational age (SGA), or both PEC+SGA.
