Early pregnancy loss, or loss of an intrauterine pregnancy within the first trimester, is encountered commonly in clinical practice. Obstetricians and gynecologists should understand the use of various diagnostic tools to differentiate between viable and nonviable pregnancies and offer the full range of therapeutic options to patients, including expectant, medical, and surgical management. The purpose of this Practice Bulletin is to review diagnostic approaches and describe options for the… Expand

Management of Failed Early Pregnancies After Previous Multiple Caesarean Sections; An Evolving Clinical Dilemma
Miscarriage is the most common complication of pregnancy in the first trimester, with most studies reporting that one in five clinical pregnancies will end in miscarriage. For pregnancies thatExpand
Ultrasonographic diagnosis of miscarriage 210
Miscarriage is the most frequent complication in pregnancy. Ultrasound is the main diagnostic tool used in diagnosing the various types of miscarriage and, to some extent, in the diagnosis of theExpand
Ectopic Pregnancy: A Devastating Catastrophe
Ectopic pregnancy is the most devastating catastrophe in early pregnancy. The clinical presentation of ectopic pregnancy has changed from a life-threatening disease, necessitating emergency surgery,Expand
Early pregnancy - models of healthcare
TLDR
In recent years ultrasound diagnosis and improved understanding of problems related to early pregnancy have led to the introduction of medical and expectant management of miscarriage and selected cases of ectopic pregnancy. Expand
Role of ultrasound in early pregnancy in differentiating normal and abnormal pregnancies.
TLDR
US in early pregnancy gave a reliable and accurate differentiation between a viable normal pregnancy and an abnormal/pathological pregnancy. Expand
STUDY OF PERINATALOUTCOME IN PATIENTS PRESENTING WITH FIRST TRIMESTER BLEEDING
TLDR
Patients with first trimester bleeding are at increased risk for spontaneous pregnancy loss and adverse fetal outcomes like preterm, intrauterine growth restriction, low birth weight, fetal distress, NICU admission and rarely congenital malformation where as there was no significant increase in perinatal mortality.

The incidence of ultrasound diagnosed uterine abnormalities related to miscarriage rates – a local audit
TLDR
Pregnancy loss is likely to occur in women with bicornuate and septate uterus more than any other uterine anomalies, while the incidences are fewer in womenwith unicornuate uterus. Expand
Recurrent Pregnancy Loss: Investigations and Interventions
TLDR
It is argued that some procedures such as preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy and intracytoplasmic morphologically selected sperm injection would impact on the outcomes and help RPL management. Expand
An outcomes evaluation of an emergency department early pregnancy assessment service and early pregnancy assessment protocol
TLDR
The results indicate that patient and service delivery improvements can be achieved following the implementation of targeted service delivery models such as EPAS and EPAP in the ED. Expand

A Method of Screening for Ectopic Pregnancy and Its Indications
The possibility of distinguishing between normal intrauterine and ectopic pregnancies by determining the lower limit of the rate of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) increase in early pregnancy wasExpand
Abortion Risk and Pregnancy Interval
TLDR
Conception within 3 months of the abortion gave no greater risk for another abortion than did conception after a longer interval, and the result of the next pregnancy following a spontaneous first‐trimester abortion was studied. Expand
Reproductive performance of women after two tubal ectopic pregnancies.
TLDR
It is suggested that linear salpingostomy should be considered in the management of a second tubal pregnancy in women with a single tube and the high incidence of a third ectopic pregnancy is concerning. Expand

Outcome of expectant management of spontaneous first trimester miscarriage: observational study
TLDR
Most women with retained products of conception with a diagnosis of spontaneous first trimester miscarriage chose expectant management, and ultrasonography can be used to advise patients on the likelihood that their miscarriage will complete spontaneously within a given time. Expand
Incidence of early loss of pregnancy.
TLDR
The total rate of pregnancy loss after implantation, including clinically recognized spontaneous abortions, was 31 percent and most of the 40 women with unrecognized early pregnancy losses had normal fertility, since 95 percent of them subsequently became clinically pregnant within two years. Expand
Neonatal outcomes in immediate versus delayed conceptions after spontaneous abortion: a retrospective case series.
TLDR
There was no evidence of adverse neonatal outcomes associated with conception immediately after a SAB, and neonates in the delayed conception group were more likely to have at least one of the following: low birth weight, an Apgar score <7 at 5 minutes, or admission to the neonatal intensive care unit. Expand
Estimates of human fertility and pregnancy loss.
TLDR
The concept that the efficiency of human reproduction is maximum at approximately 30% per cycle is supported, with a very significant number of these pregnancies end in spontaneous abortion. Expand
Maternal age and fetal loss: population based register linkage study
TLDR
Fetal loss is high in women in their late 30s or older, irrespective of reproductive history, and should be taken into consideration in pregnancy planning and counselling. Expand

TLDR
A pregnancy in which the embryo has a slow heart rate at or before 7.0 weeks' gestation and which continues beyond the first trimester has a high likelihood of resulting in a liveborn neonate without congenital anomalies. Expand
