Rubbing Salt on the Wound.

Authors:
Raj Naik

BJOG 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, NR9 6SX, United Kingdom.

The quotation "People who peek through key-holes have to expect an occasional poke in the eye" comes to mind in view of the recently published LACC Trial in NEJM showing significantly worse survival following "keyhole" surgery (laparoscopic or robotic) in early stage cervical cancer (Ramirez et al NEJM(2018)379:1895-1904). A second study in the same edition reinforced the results by also showing a worse survival with "keyhole" surgery (Melamed et al NEJM(2018)379:1905-1914). This must be considered as being so unfortunate as having "both eyes poked at the same time via the same keyhole". Read More

University of Edinburgh, Queen's Medical Research Institute, 47 Little France Crescent, Edinburgh, EH16 4TJ, UK.

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges facing global reproductive health. Women in the UK and US are today more likely to be obese or overweight at booking than normal weight, and many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) seem destined to follow suit (Poston et al. Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol 2016; 4:1025-36). Read More

Prenatal Management of Pregnancies at Risk of Fetal Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (FNAIT): Scientific Impact Paper No. 61.

BJOG 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

WHAT IS IT?: Fetal neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT), also known as neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) or fetomaternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FMAIT), is a rare condition which affects a baby's platelets. This can put them at risk of problems with bleeding, particularly into the brain. One baby per week in the UK may be seriously affected and milder forms can affect one in every 1000 births.

University of Washington, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 4245 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, Washington, 98195, USA.

I commend the effort required to undertake a modestly large trial to alter the vaginal microbiome (1). Its aim was to reduce preterm birth, the single most important and unsolved issue in obstetrics. Very early preterm birth before 34 weeks gestation is strongly linked to an ascending chorioamnionitis infection with resulting inflammation from vaginal bacteria, particularly with bacterial vaginosis (BV).

I E Messinis

BJOG 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Faculty of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, University of Thessaly, 41110, Larissa, Greece.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is widely used for the treatment of infertility with more than 8 million babies being born worldwide to date (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, 2018). This method is applied to women with various causes of infertility in autologous embryo transfers, but it is also used in the context of an oocyte donation programme. The idea of studying the role of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the incidence of severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is interesting. Read More

What is a mediation analysis? Simply put, it is a powerful statistical modelling approach to determine if a third factor helps explain the association between an exposure and an outcome. The approach to mediation analysis rests on a few key assumptions, but importantly provides estimates for a few interesting parameters (VanderWeele TJ. Explanation in Causal inference. Read More

Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of the speculum? The speculum has been an essential tool for gynecological examinations for millennia and almost dreaded by women since the first time it was used. No device has proven to be better for evaluating the cervix-until now. Today, it appears feasible that HPV vaginal swabs may soon be an alternative to traditional cervical screening in some circumstances (Harvey LFB et al. Read More
