Sacrocolpopexy tends to be superior to transvaginal mesh surgery.

BJOG 2020 Jul 10. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford, UK.

The use of synthetic mesh prostheses to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) remains highly controversial. Despite complete restriction on vaginally placed mesh in Australia and New Zealand (2017), the UK (2018), and the USA (2019), transvaginal mesh (TVM) prolapse repair remain widely in many countries, including China and most of East Asia. Sacrocolpopexy (SC) is widely considered as the gold-standard for surgical correction of vaginal vault prolapse. Read More

New pathways to diagnose preeclampsia.

Authors:
Ignacio Herraiz

BJOG 2020 Jul 8. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

Fetal Medicine Unit, Maternal and Child Health and Development Network (Red SAMID-RD12/0026/0016), Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Instituto de Investigación Hospital, 12 de Octubre (imas12). Av. de Córdoba, s/n, 28041, Madrid, Spain.

Correct clinical decision making that avoids unnecessary complications for the mother and the child, rests in differentiating when pre-eclampsia is present and when it is not. The first step is to always keep this condition in mind. There is no point in having the most up-to-date guidance if we do not recognize the palpebral edema of a pregnant woman that enters through our office door while looking at the computer screen.

We are all likely to need a blood test, a biopsy or wind up on the wrong end of an endoscope. We know that the experience is not going to be pleasant. Many of us will revert to techniques to divert attention away from painful stimuli, such as counting forwards or backwards in our heads, deep breathing, imagining tranquil places or listening to music.

BJOG 2020 Jul 1. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Department of Cellular Pathology, North Bristol NHS Trust, Southmead Hospital, Bristol, BS10 5NB, United Kingdom.

Effective Cervical screening involves a complex sequence of interactions between women, clinical staff and systems. Even in well organised screening programmes, achieving high population coverage is challenging. The transition to using Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) testing as the primary screening modality, rather than cytology, has introduced the possibility of using a self-collected sample for the primary HPV test.

A critical review of the Cochrane meta-analysis of routine late pregnancy ultrasound.

Authors:
Gordon C S Smith

BJOG 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Cambridge, NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre, Cambridge, CB2 0SW, UK.

A Cochrane review of universal late pregnancy ultrasound has been highly influential in guiding UK practice, concluding that it does not improve outcome. However, the meta-analysis combines trials that used diverse definitions of screen positive, were designed in the absence of high quality data on diagnostic effectiveness, and did not couple screening to an effective intervention. Moreover, even if the trials had combined a highly effective screening test with a highly effective intervention, the sample size was 15% of that required to study perinatal death. Read More

Several groups around the world are now starting to undertake these procedures and will benefit to learn about particularities of open and fetoscopic approaches.
