Objectives. To investigate whether symphysiolysis during pregnancy is a risk factor for cesarean delivery (CD). Methods. A retrospective population-based study comparing all singleton pregnancies of women with and without symphysiolysis was conducted. Deliveries occurred between the years 2000 and 2007. Multiple logistic regression models were used to control for confounders. Results. Out of 80,898 patients, 0.2% (n = 154) were diagnosed with symphysiolysis during pregnancy. Patients with… Expand

Risk factors for pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain: a scoping review
A large number of factors have been examined as potential risk factors for PPGP, but there is a lack of repetition to be able to draw stronger conclusions and pool studies in systematic reviews. Expand
Clinical risk factors for pre-eclampsia determined in early pregnancy: systematic review and meta-analysis of large cohort studies
A practical evidence based list of clinical risk factors that can be assessed by a clinician at ≤16 weeks’ gestation to estimate a woman’s risk of pre-eclampsia and the use of aspirin prophylaxis in pregnancy is developed. Expand
Pelvic Pain After Cesarean Section
This chapter explores these multifactorial risk factors and potential treatments in each case and concludes that further research is necessary in order to clarify the association between chronic pelvic pain and cesarean delivery, as well as treatments. Expand

The majority of predictors were not modifiable, relating to obstetric history, maternal age and diabetes severity, and possible modifiable interventions to avoid/improve labor induction, and decrease birth weight and maternal weight gain might decrease risk of Cesarean delivery. Expand
To induce or not to induce labor: a macrosomic dilemma.
The induction of labor among women carrying macrosomic fetuses was found to be an independent risk factor for a cesarean section. Expand
Peripartum pubic symphysis separation: a case series and review of the literature.
The occurrence of a symphyseal separation should not significantly alter the management of subsequent pregnancies, and conservative therapy is recommended for any recurrence of symptoms, which usually result in a complete recovery with 4 to 6 weeks. Expand
The influence of obesity and diabetes on the risk of cesarean delivery.
Pregravid obesity and diabetes independently increase the risk for cesarean delivery in the United States, and body habitus has a significantly larger impact on CD risk. Expand

Incidence of Four Syndromes of Pregnancy-Related Pelvic Joint Pain
This study proposes new, more precise procedures for the identification and classification of pregnancy-related pelvic joint pain based on both reports from the women and a physical examination, and indicates the 20.1% incidence rate represents the most precise and reliable information available hitherto.

Risk factors in developing pregnancy‐related pelvic girdle pain
This study demonstrates no single dominant risk factor for developing pelvic girdle pain in pregnancy, but reveals a set of physical and psychosocial factors. Expand
Understanding Peripartum Pelvic Pain: Implications of a Patient Survey
It is hypothesized that peripartum pelvic pain is caused by strain of ligaments in the pelvis and lower spine resulting from a combination of damage to ligaments (recently or in the past), hormonal effects, muscle weakness, and the weight of the fetus. Expand

Symptom-giving pelvic girdle relaxation is a considerable problem both in pregnancy and post partum, and the occupational risk can possibly be prevented. Expand
Lack of prenatal care in a traditional society. Is it an obstetric hazard?
Lack of prenatal care is an independent contributor to perinatal mortality and low birth weight in a traditional society and special attempts should be made to encourage women to use the available prenatal services. Expand
