It is well known that PDA is more frequent at lower gestational ages, thus reducing the incidence of PDA could lead to an improvement of overall outcomes in extremely preterm newborns.

Uterine Cervical Length Measurement to Reduce Length of Stay in Patients Admitted for Threatened Preterm Labor: A Randomized Trial

Knowledge of cervical length in women admitted because of threatened preterm labor is useful in reducing length of stay, with no impact on GA at delivery or preterm birth rate.

Dental management in pregnancy: recent trends.

This review analyzes the changes that occur during normal pregnancy and describes the main odontogenic infections, suggesting the actual best approach in dental management and recommending a more intense interdisciplinary collaboration between gynecologist and dentist.

This review highlights the current evidence-based clinical applications of progesterone for prevention of preterm birth and indicates that intramuscular hydroxyprogesterone caproate is indicated in singleton pregnancies in women with a prior spontaneous pre term birth.

Maternal Characteristics Influencing the Development of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Women Receiving 17-alpha-Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate

In obese women with age greater than 35 years, earlier initiation of 17OHPC may increase the risk for GDM, and other factors including African American race, differing degrees of obesity, and use of tocolysis were not significant risks for the development of GDM.

Contributions to the dynamics of cervix remodeling prior to term and preterm birth†

The mechanism for cervix remodeling in preparation for birth is proposed to involve a convergence of inputs and complex orchestration of inflammatory processes that direct resident macrophage activities to drive extracellular matrix degradation.

Maternal Characteristics, Short Mid-Trimester Cervical Length, and Preterm Delivery

Logistic regression indicated that short CL and obstetric history, but not prior cervical excisional procedure, were significantly associated with SPTD after adjustment for potential confounders.

What we have learned about the role of 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate in the prevention of preterm birth.

This review will examine the plausibility of 17-OHPC in preventing preterm birth and the investigation of its clinical efficacy and highlight factors to explain variations in clinical trial outcomes and outline the trajectory needed for future investigations.

Asymptomatic “placental prolapse” with cervical funneling in a patient with complete placenta previa

Transvaginal sonographic findings in a patient with complete placenta previa and increased risk of preterm birth owing to a prior history of mid‐trimester pregnancy loss are described and it is believed that this could lead to antepartum hemorrhage and mandate close observation when diagnosed.



Maternal Hemodynamics by Thoracic Impedance Cardiography for Normal Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period

The normative values reported in this investigation can be used to interpret and assess similarly tested patients with hypertensive or otherwise complicated pregnancy.

This analysis provides no support for the view that 17ahydroxyprogesterone caproate protects against miscarriage, but suggests that it does reduce the occurrence of preterm birth.

Early Access to Prenatal Care: Implications for Racial Disparity in Perinatal Mortality

Racial disparities in perinatal mortality persist in contemporary obstetric practice despite early access to prenatal care, and the study population was 5% black, 22% Hispanic, 68% white, and 5% other.

Systematic review of uncalibrated arterial pressure waveform analysis to determine cardiac output and stroke volume variation.

UNLABELLED The FloTrac/Vigileo™, introduced in 2005, uses arterial pressure waveform analysis to calculate cardiac output (CO) and stroke volume variation (SVV) without external calibration. The aim

A trial of 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate to prevent prematurity in twins.

Treatment with 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate did not reduce the rate of preterm birth in women with twin gestations.
