OBJECTIVE To evaluate a universal transvaginal ultrasonogram cervical length screening program on the incidence of a cervical length 20 mm or less and adherence to the management protocol for a cervical length less than 25 mm. METHODS We conducted a prospective cohort study of women with singleton gestations 18 0/7 to 23 6/7 weeks of gestation eligible(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether universal transvaginal ultrasound (TVU) cervical length (CL) screening is indicated in women with prior term births. STUDY DESIGN We conducted a prospective cohort study from Jan. 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013, of singleton gestations between 18 0/7-23 6/7 weeks undergoing TVU CL screening for prediction of spontaneous preterm(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy affecting 0.3% to 1.0% of pregnancies, and is one of the most common indications for hospitalization during pregnancy. While a previous Cochrane review examined interventions for nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, there has not yet been a review examining the interventions(More)
BACKGROUND Bell palsy is a facial nerve neuropathy that is a rare disorder but occurs at higher frequency in pregnancy. Almost 30% of cases are associated with preeclampsia or gestational hypertension. Bilateral Bell palsy occurs in only 0.3%-2.0% of cases of facial paralysis, has a poorer prognosis for recovery, and may be associated with a systemic(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate differences in risk factors and delivery outcomes among women with spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB) with short (≤25 mm) versus normal (>25 mm) cervical length (CL). METHODS Secondary analysis of a prospective cohort study of singleton gestations between 18 0/7 and 23 6/7 weeks, without prior sPTB, undergoing universal transvaginal(More)
OBJECTIVE To use data from the Cervical Length Education and Review program to evaluate the quality of transvaginal cervical length ultrasonography by trained imagers (ie, ultrasonographers, radiologists, perinatologists). METHODS This is a retrospective observational study of data from the Cervical Length Education and Review program. Candidates(More)
Cervical insufficiency can be defined by a combination of obstetric history, cervical dilation on exam, and/or short cervical length in women with prior preterm birth. Options for mechanical intervention include cerclage and pessary. There is evidence to support the benefit of a cervical cerclage in women with singleton gestations who have a diagnosis of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether second-trimester cervical length (CL) is associated with induction of labor (IOL) outcomes. METHODS Retrospective cohort study of nulliparous singletons undergoing CL screening at 18 0/7-23 6/7 weeks from 1/1/2012 to 12/31/2013. Women induced at term (≥37 weeks) were included. Primary outcome was vaginal delivery (VD) within(More)
