Successful vaginal delivery after external cephalic version (ECV): does time interval from ECV to delivery make a difference? A multicenter study.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2020 Aug 4. Epub 2020 Aug 4.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sheba Medical Center, Tel-Hashomer, 52621, Ramat Gan, Israel.

Purpose: The risk of cesarean delivery after a successful external cephalic version for breech presentation is higher as compared with fetuses in cephalic presentation. However, the role of the time interval between version attempt to delivery on the risk for cesarean delivery is unclear. We aimed to study the effect of the time interval from a successful external cephalic version to delivery on the risk for cesarean delivery and assess factors associated with cesarean delivery after a successful version.

Sonographic indicators of isolated fetal sagittal craniosynostosis during pregnancy.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2020 Jun 12. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Australian Craniofacial Unit, Women's and Children's Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Introduction: The antenatal diagnosis of sagittal craniosynostosis can be challenging, but there are several published papers describing a traumatic outcome to both the affected fetus and the mother during delivery of a scaphocephalic child. The antenatal imaging from affected children was collected along with the mother's obstetric history. The aim of this study was to identify antenatal ultrasound features that may assist the diagnosis of sagittal synostosis before birth, to enable appropriate delivery planning and avoid both maternal and fetal trauma during birth.

External cephalic version of the non-cephalic presenting twin: a systematic review.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2020 May 20:1-7. Epub 2020 May 20.

Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Decreasing the primary cesarean delivery rate and associated maternal and fetal complications is a priority for obstetric care providers. External cephalic version (ECV) is a procedure recommended for women with singleton pregnancies where the fetus is malpresenting to avoid vaginal breech delivery, which is inherently riskier than cesarean delivery. However, little is known about this procedure in the context of twin gestations. Read More

Revisiting the management of term breech presentation: a proposal for overcoming some of the controversies.

BMC Pregnancy Childbirth 2020 May 3;20(1):263. Epub 2020 May 3.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris, Hôpital Jean Verdier, Bondy, France.

Background: The debate surrounding the management of term breech presentation has excessively focused on the mode of delivery. Indeed, a steady decline in the rate of vaginal breech delivery has been observed over the last three decades, and the soundness of the vaginal route was seriously challenged at the beginning of the 2000s. However, associations between adverse perinatal outcomes and antenatal risk factors have been observed in foetuses that remain in the breech presentation in late gestation, confirming older data and raising the question of the role of these antenatal risk factors in adverse perinatal outcomes.

Labour admission assessment results of index pregnancy as predictors of intrapartum stillbirth in public health facilities of Addis Ababa: A case-control study.

PLoS One 2020 2;15(4):e0230478. Epub 2020 Apr 2.

Department of Health Studies, College of Human Sciences, University of South Africa, Pretoria, South Africa.

Background: Approximately one-third of the global stillbirth burden occurs during intrapartum period. The ability to assess obstetric parameters including effacement, dilatation, uterine contraction, decent, rupture of the uterus, and moulding of the foetal head are among the essential competencies required by obstetric service providers admitting women for labour in health facilities. Misdiagnosis of these conditions could result in unnecessary obstetric interventions and unfavourable obstetric outcomes including intrapartum stillbirth. Read More

Rationalisation of the caesarean section rate in a tertiary referral hospital using the Robson classification.

J Obstet Gynaecol 2020 Mar 16:1-7. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, Alicante University General Hospital, Alicante, Spain.

The aim of this study was to implement the Robson Ten Groups Classification System (RTGCS) to identify the main contributors to the caesarean section (CS) rate and to evaluate whether the introduction of a plan of obstetrical interventions reduced this rate. An observational retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted during two time periods at Alicante University General Hospital. In the pre-implementation period (2009-2012), RTGCS was applied to identify the main groups contributing to the overall CS rate. Read More

Inner Ear Malformations in Congenital Deafness Are Not Associated with Increased Risk of Breech Presentation.

Fetal Pediatr Pathol 2020 Mar 11:1-11. Epub 2020 Mar 11.

Faculty of Medicine Novi Sad, University of Novi Sad, Novi Sad, Serbia.

There is speculation that an immature vestibular system may be associated with breech presentation at delivery. Our aim was to determine whether syndromes with congenital inner ear malformations were accompanied by a higher frequency of breech presentation/malpresentations than in the general population (2%-3%). A review was conducted for published literature using PubMed/MEDLINE (1936-2016), to determine frequency of breech presentation and transverse lie in cases with congenital deafness (Michel aplasia, Wildervanck syndrome, Mondini-Alexander dysplasia, Waardenburg syndrome, CHARGE syndrome, Large vestibular aqueductal syndrome, Pendred syndrome, Oculo-aurico-vertebral spectrum, Jervel and Lange-Nielsen syndrome, Usher syndrome, and Scheibe dysplasia) and vestibular nerve aplasia.

Rev Colomb Obstet Ginecol 2019 12;70(4):253-265

Residente de tercer año de Obstetricia y Ginecología, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Nacional de Colombia.

Objective: To review the concepts underlying breech presentation delivery as well as the semiology and the obstetric maneuvers contributing to a successful perinatal maternal outcome.

Methods: Based on a hypothetical scenario to set the stage for a practical approach to the topic, an explanatory paper built on a narrative review is created in order to examine the principles related to diagnosis, mechanism of delivery and maternal care, emphasizing maneuvers to ease fetal extraction.

Results: Breech presentation delivery must be managed through the vaginal canal when already in the expulsion phase with fetal engagement. Read More

Face-to-pubes rotational maneuver for bilateral nuchal arms in a vaginal breech birth, resolved in an upright maternal position: A case report.

Birth 2020 Jun 3;47(2):246-252. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Birth Centre Lead and Breech Specialist Midwife, Maternity Services, St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Background: A physiological breech birth is one in which the woman is encouraged to remain active throughout her labor and able to assume the position of her choice for the birth. Use of this strategy within the United Kingdom National Health Service has led to the use of innovative maneuvers to relieve obstruction when women give birth in upright positions, for example, kneeling or standing. This includes use of the face-to-pubes rotational maneuver to relieve extended nuchal arm(s). Read More

Precipitous Delivery Masquerading as Biliary Colic in the Setting of Depo-Provera® Failure.

Cureus 2020 Jan 26;12(1):e6776. Epub 2020 Jan 26.

Emergency Medicine, Stanford University Hospital, Palo Alto, USA.

Precipitous delivery in the emergency department is a high-acuity, low-occurrence event that requires rapid recognition and interdepartment cooperation to prevent fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. Prompt recognition of the peripartum state can be delayed by reported usage of long-acting contraception and concurrent distracting complaints. In this case report, a young female presented to the emergency department with epigastric abdominal pain in the setting of recent workup for biliary colic and multiple doses of long-acting, depot contraceptive agents.
