Herein is presented a systematic review and meta-analysis of evidence related to operative outcomes associated with robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy (RLM) compared with abdominal myomectomy (AM) and laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). Outcome measures included estimated blood loss (EBL), blood transfusion, operating time, complications, length of hospital(More)
BACKGROUND The issues related to safety of induction of labour in women with previous caesarean section remain controversial. The main adverse outcome fuelling this debate is a "small" risk of uterine rupture that is potentially devastating for both the mother and the fetus. OBJECTIVE To estimate the risk of uterine rupture or dehiscence in women who(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between decision to delivery interval and perinatal outcome in severe placental abruption. DESIGN A case-control study. SETTING Large inner city teaching hospital. METHODS Retrospective case note review of pregnancies terminated following severe placental aburption and fetal bradycardia. One year paediatric(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the long-term outcome of infants born with cord pH ≤ 7.0 and no clinical evidence of asphyxia at birth. DESIGN SETTING Tertiary Referral Centre. A prospective matched cohort study was conducted. 51 term infants were recruited following singleton birth with venous cord pH ≤ 7.0. For each recruited baby a healthy baby with normal(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW This paper reviews the literature to elucidate the international stance on induction of labour in women with previous caesarean section. RECENT FINDINGS There is no evidence to suggest that current induction methods are less effective in women with previous caesarean section. It would, therefore, seem logical to use the same regimens as(More)
We present a technique of direct optical entry through Palmer's point (3 cm below the left costal margin in the mid-clavicular line) as an alternative laparoscopic entry method for those gynaecological patients at risk of periumbilical adhesions. This method has been used in 15 patients and allowed the adhesions to be cleared where necessary. We feel that(More)
BACKGROUND A small prospective observational cohort study with the aim to evaluate postoperative health-related quality of life (HRQOL) at one-year follow-up after total laparoscopic hysterectomy for benign gynecological conditions and to assess postoperative functions in terms of return to work, sexual activity and driving was conducted. METHODS Sixty(More)
Vaginal myomectomy is an uncommon but advantageous approach for large interstitial uterine fibroids. Myomectomy is performed via laparotomy and laparoscopy; however, in selected cases, vaginal myomectomy has been proven to be a safe and an effective surgical procedure. We report the case of a 38-year-old para one woman with complaints of chronic lower(More)
