INTRODUCTION The indications of placement of cerclage have recently changed, and so it is important to evaluate how many women are undergoing this procedure. With the recent completion of clinical trials, it is plausible that obstetricians and perinatologists may have become more selective in terms of the best candidates for cerclage. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to estimate the time interval between elective cerclage removal and spontaneous delivery. METHODS Singleton pregnancies with McDonald cerclage were evaluated for the interval between elective cerclage removal (36-37 weeks) and spontaneous delivery. We also compared spontaneous delivery within 48 hours after cerclage(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate whether the location of the placental cord insertion (CI) at 11 to 13 weeks' gestation affects the maternal serum pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A). METHODS Cohort study was conducted in patients who underwent the first trimester screening including nuchal translucency and blood test. We additionally documented the CI(More)
We sought to estimate if there is an association between cerclage and cesarean delivery. We performed a retrospective cohort study of women with high-risk factors for preterm birth. Those with a cerclage were compared with those without. Outcomes included overall incidence of cesarean delivery and incidence of cesarean delivery secondary to labor arrest. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate diagnostic accuracy of quantitative fetal fibronectin (qfFN) test in predicting preterm birth (PTB) risk <34 weeks' gestation or within 14 days from testing. We explored the predictive potential of the test in five-predefined PTB risk categories based on predefined qfFN thresholds (<10, 10-49, 50-199, 200-499 and ≥500 ng/mL). METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate radiologic findings and outcomes of cerebellar injuries in fetuses with severe anemia due to RhD alloimmunization undergoing intrauterine transfusions. METHODS Imaging of multiplanar neurosonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were reviewed. Pregnancy outcomes were recorded. RESULTS Cerebellar injuries were identified(More)
INTRODUCTION There are several published clinical trials of the use of tranexamic acid (TXA) in an obstetric setting, but no consensus on its use or guidelines for management. MATERIAL AND METHODS The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the effectiveness of TXA in reducing blood loss when given prior to cesarean delivery. We performed a systematic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of cervical lacerations with cerclage removal planned before labor compared to after the onset of labor by a systematic review of published studies. STUDY DESIGN Searches were performed in electronic databases from inception of each database to November 2014. We identified all studies reporting(More)
