TLDR
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. Expand
Uterine Cervical Length Measurement to Reduce Length of Stay in Patients Admitted for Threatened Preterm Labor: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
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. Expand
Dental management in pregnancy: recent trends.
TLDR
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. Expand
Clinical Application of Progesterone for the Prevention of Preterm Birth, 2016.
TLDR
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. Expand
Can We Prevent Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia?
TLDR
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia most commonly occurs in extremely preterm infants and is characterized by a milder but protracted course and a different pathobiology than the BPD described 50 years ago. Expand
Maternal Characteristics Influencing the Development of Gestational Diabetes in Obese Women Receiving 17-alpha-Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate
TLDR
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. Expand
Contributions to the dynamics of cervix remodeling prior to term and preterm birth†
  • S. Yellon
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Biology of Reproduction
  • 2016
TLDR
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. Expand
Maternal Characteristics, Short Mid-Trimester Cervical Length, and Preterm Delivery
TLDR
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. Expand
What we have learned about the role of 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate in the prevention of preterm birth.
TLDR
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. Expand
Asymptomatic “placental prolapse” with cervical funneling in a patient with complete placenta previa
TLDR
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
TLDR
A single-center prospective observational institutional review board-approved study of normotensive women using thoracic impedance cardiography performed at specific times during gestation using STATA software to find out whether women with high-risk pregnancies are at higher risk of miscarriage or cesarean delivery. Expand
Early goal directed therapy for sepsis during pregnancy.
TLDR
Optimal care for the septic patient requires a multidisciplinary team with expertise in obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, critical care, infectious disease, anesthesia, and pharmacy. Expand
Progestogen administration in pregnancy may prevent preterm delivery

TLDR
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. Expand
Cervical Length at 16–22 Weeks' Gestation and Risk for Preterm Delivery
TLDR
Transvaginal measurement of cervical length during routine ultrasound at 16–22 weeks' gestation in asymptomatic gravidas might help identify women at risk for spontaneous preterm delivery and was a significant predictor of preterm birth before 35 weeks. Expand
Cervical remodeling during pregnancy and parturition
TLDR
This review highlights recent findings that better define molecular processes driving progressive disorganization of the cervical extracellular matrix and proposes new investigations proposing that infection-induced premature cervical remodeling is distinct from the normal process. Expand
The rate of cervical change and the phenotype of spontaneous preterm birth.
TLDR
Cervical shortening occurs at the same rate before spontaneous preterm birth, regardless of presentation, and is similar in women who presented with preterm labor and preterm ruptured membranes. Expand
17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate to prevent prematurity in nulliparas with cervical length less than 30 mm.
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate whether 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17-OHP) reduces preterm birth (PTB) in nulliparous women with a midtrimester cervical length (CL) <30 mm. STUDY DESIGNExpand
Early Access to Prenatal Care: Implications for Racial Disparity in Perinatal Mortality
TLDR
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. Expand
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 aimExpand
A trial of 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate to prevent prematurity in twins.
TLDR
Treatment with 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate did not reduce the rate of preterm birth in women with twin gestations. Expand
