Possible explanation of cephalic and noncephalic presentation during pregnancy: a theoretical approach.

The hypothesis is that from the 24th week of gestation an increasing percentage of fetuses occupies an exclusively cephalic presentation, since it allows an uncompromised posture in the caudal direction of body segments whose muscles are first affected by the occurrence and progressive increase of tone.

Ultrasonography and external cephalic version at term.

Retrospective Investigation of Transverse Situs Single Pregnancy Cases Without Placenta Previa

BMI ≥25 kg/m2 and gravida ≥3 were found as significant etiologic factors in addition to factors affecting the uterine volume and it was found that prolonged operation time and increased delta Hb rates were detected in dorsoinferior transverse situs cases.

Data suggest that the physiological process that accounts for 92% of cephalic-presenting human fetuses at delivery should be sought from the 25th gestational week onwards.

Breech presentation at delivery: a marker for congenital anomaly?

Breech presentation at delivery is a marker for the presence of congenital anomaly among infants breech at birth, and infants delivered breech deserve special scrutiny for the existence of malformation.

A population-based case-control study of risk factors for breech presentation.

External cephalic version beginning at 34 weeks' gestation versus 37 weeks' gestation: a randomized multicenter trial.

Early ECV performed at 34 to 36 weeks compared with 37 to 38 weeks may reduce the risk of noncephalic presentation at delivery, and a large pragmatic trial of early ECV is now required to assess this approach further in terms of cesarean section rates and neonatal outcomes before changes in clinical practice.

Outcome of singleton breech deliveries beyond 28 weeks gestation: the experience at MCH Centre, PIMS. Mother and Child Health. Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences.

There was significant association of breech presentation with congenital anomalies and greater recourse to caesarean section beyond 34 weeks seems to confer a survival advantage to the new born infant.


Heat stress, exercise, and muscle injury: effects on urate metabolism and renal function.

Twenty-two men were studied serially to examine the possible mechanism of acute renal failure during intense physical training in hot climates and hyperuricemia was prevalent by day eleven.
