OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of induction of labour with a policy of expectant monitoring for intrauterine growth restriction near term. DESIGN Multicentre randomised equivalence trial (the Disproportionate Intrauterine Growth Intervention Trial At Term (DIGITAT)). SETTING Eight academic and 44 non-academic hospitals in the Netherlands between(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and internally validate a model that predicts the outcome of an intended vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) for a Western European population that can be used to personalise counselling for deliveries at term. DESIGN Registration-based retrospective cohort study. SETTING Five university teaching hospitals, seven non-university(More)
UNLABELLED We reviewed the English, American, and German literature for articles describing the prevalence, clinical presentation, outcome, therapeutic options, and screening possibilities for fetal/neonatal allo-immune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT), published between January 1950 and March 2007. The reported prevalence of FNAIT in human platelet antigen(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to study long-term (neuro)developmental and behavioral outcome of pregnancies complicated by intrauterine growth restriction at term in relation to induction of labor or an expectant management. STUDY DESIGN Parents of 2-year-old children included in the Disproportionate Intrauterine Growth Intervention Trial at Term (DIGITAT) answered(More)
OBJECTIVE Pregnancies complicated by intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) are at increased risk for neonatal morbidity and mortality. The Dutch nationwide disproportionate intrauterine growth intervention trial at term (DIGITAT trial) showed that induction of labour and expectant monitoring were comparable with respect to composite adverse neonatal(More)
OBJECTIVE To externally validate two models from the USA (entry-to-care [ETC] and close-to-delivery [CTD]) that predict successful intended vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) for the Dutch population. DESIGN A nationwide registration-based cohort study. SETTING Seventeen hospitals in the Netherlands. POPULATION Seven hundred and sixty-three pregnant(More)
OBJECTIVE The Disproportionate Intrauterine Growth Intervention Trial at Term (DIGITAT) compared induction of labor and expectant management in suspected intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) at term. In this subanalysis, we report neonatal morbidity between the policies based on the Morbidity Assessment Index for Newborns (MAIN). STUDY DESIGN We used(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to study the diurnal variation in angiotensin II sensitivity. STUDY DESIGN Angiotensin sensitivity tests were performed at 9 AM and at 2 PM in 12 normotensive pregnant women, with each woman serving as her own control. RESULTS In all patients the effective pressor dose was higher in the afternoon. CONCLUSION We suggest the(More)
Carnitine plays a key role in the oxidation of fatty acids. Most solutions for parenteral nutrition do not contain carnitine. Because endogenous carnitine synthesis is insufficient in newborns, they are prone to developing a carnitine deficiency when they are dependent on total parenteral nutrition (TPN). Stimulated by the clinical observation of manifest(More)
