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)
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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To describe the demographic and clinical characteristics of HIV-infected individuals and HIV-affected couples who were referred for preconception counseling (PCC) at a large urban US-based HIV clinic. METHODS Electronic medical records were reviewed for HIV-infected individuals and HIV-affected couples. Medical, reproductive, surgical,(More)
INTRODUCTION While nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy are very common, affecting approximately 80% of the pregnancies, hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe form affecting 0.3-1.0% of the pregnancies. Although hyperemesis gravidarum is rarely a source of mortality, it is a significant source of morbidity. It is one of the most common indications for(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 length (CL) screening should be offered to singletons because there are interventions for those with a short CL. A transvaginal ultrasound (TVU) is the "gold standard" for CL. In singletons with prior spontaneous preterm birth, serial TVU CL screening is recommended between 16 and 23 6/7 weeks. Universal TVU CL screening between 18 and 24 weeks may(More)
