Hysterotomy level at cesarean section and occurrence of large scar defects: a randomized single ‐blind trial
ABSTRACTObjectiveTo study the effect of cesarean hysterotomy level on the occurrence of large uterine scar defects 6 ‐9 months after delivery.MethodsThis was a two ‐center, randomized, single‐blind trial of a surgical procedure with masked assessment of the principal outcome under study. Women in active labor (cervix dilatation ≥5 cm) were randomized into a high incision (HIGH) or a low incision (LOW) group. Hysterotomy was performed 2 cm above (HIGH) or 2 cm below (LOW) the plica vesicouterina. Women were examined with saline contrast sonohysterography to assess the appearance of the hysterotomy scar 6‐9 months...

Evaluation of automated tool for 2D fetal biometry
ConclusionThe automated tool correctly identified the biometric variable in 99% of frozen images. The resulting measurements have a high degree of accuracy and compare well with previously published manual to manual agreement. The measurements exhibited bias, with the automated tool underestimating biometry; this could be overcome by further improvements in the algorithm. Nevertheless, adjustable calipers for manual correction remains a requirement.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. (Source: Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology)

Fetal fraction ‐based risk algorithm for non‐invasive prenatal testing: screening for trisomies 13 and 18 and triploidy in women with low cell‐free fetal DNA
ABSTRACTObjectiveTo identify pregnancies at increased risk for trisomy 13, trisomy 18 or triploidy attributable to low fetal fraction (FF).MethodsA FF ‐based risk (FFBR) model was built using data from more than 165 000 singleton pregnancies referred for single‐nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)‐based non‐invasive prenatal testing (NIPT). Based on maternal weight and gestational age (GA), FF distributions for normal, trisomy 13, trisomy 18 an d triploid pregnancies were constructed and used to adjust prior risks for these abnormalities. A risk cut‐off of ≥ 1% was chosen to define pregnancies at high r...

First ‐trimester and combined first‐ and second‐trimester prediction of small‐for‐gestational age and late fetal growth restriction
ABSTRACTObjectiveTo develop a first ‐trimester or combined first‐ and second‐trimester screening algorithm for the prediction of small‐for‐gestational age (SGA) and late fetal growth restriction (FGR).MethodsThis was a retrospective study of women with singleton pregnancy, who underwent routine first ‐, second‐ and third‐trimester ultrasound assessment. Late FGR was defined, at ≥ 32 weeks' gestation in the absence of congenital anomalies, as either (i) estimated fetal weight (EFW) or birth weight (BW)

Influence of maternal characteristics and gestational age on haemodynamic indices: NICOM device ‐specific reference ranges
ABSTRACTBackgroundThere is increasing evidence for the importance of haemodynamic monitoring in pregnancy. Device ‐specific reference ranges are required in order to correctly intepret hemodynamic indices in healthy and pathological pregnancies.MethodsThis was a prospective cohort study of healthy singleton pregnancies. Haemodynamic measurements of stroke volume, cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance throughout pregnancy were obtained using NICOM®, a non ‐invasive device based on bio‐reactance technology. NICOM device‐specific reference ranges were created with respect to gestational age and maternal ...

Deep learning enables automatic quantitative assessment of the puborectalis muscle and the urogenital hiatus in the plane of minimal hiatal dimensions
ConclusionDeep learning can be used to automatically and reliably segment the PRM and UH in 2D, in the plane of minimal hiatal dimensions, of the nulliparous female pelvic floor. These segmentations can be used to reliably measure the parameters; hiatal dimensions, PRM length and MEP.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Physiological effects of cold ‐dry versus heated‐humidified partial amniotic carbon dioxide insufflation in sheep
AbstractObjectivesPartial amniotic carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation (PACI) is used to improve visualisation and enable complex fetoscopic surgery. However, concerns exist about fetal hypercapnic acidosis and post ‐operative fetal membrane inflammation. We assessed whether heated‐humidified CO2 would reduce the impact of PACI on the fetus and fetal membranes in sheep.MethodsFetal lambs 105 days gestation (term=145 days) were partially delivered through a caesarean section and instrumented with arterial catheters and flow probes. Fetuses were returned to the uterus which was then closed and insufflated with cold ‐dry ...

Left ventricular mechanics in the late second trimester of healthy pregnancy
CONCLUSIONCompared to the non ‐pregnant state, pregnant women in the second trimester of healthy pregnancy have significantly greater resting systolic function, as assessed by LV longitudinal and circumferential strain. Contrary to previous work, these data show that healthy pregnant women should not exhibit reductions in rest ing systolic function between 22‐26 weeks. The enhanced myocardial contractile function does not appear to be related to hemodynamic load and could be the result of other physiological adaptations during gestation.This article is protected by copyright.
