The Role of Extremes in Interpregnancy Interval in Women at Increased Risk for Adverse Obstetric Outcomes Due to Health Disparities: 
A Literature Review.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2018 Oct;14(3):242-250

Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, BostonMA, USA.

Background: The interpregnancy interval (IPI) defines the time between two consecutive gestations. In the general population, women with IPIs that fall outside the recommended 18-24 month range appear to be at modestly increased risk for adverse obstetric outcomes.

Objective: The aim of this review was to assess the impact of extremes in IPI in populations with an increased baseline risk for adverse obstetric outcomes due to disparities in health and health care, including racial and ethnic groups, adolescents, and those of lower socioeconomic status.

Rodent Models of Experimental Endometriosis: Identifying Mechanisms of Disease and Therapeutic Targets.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2018 Jun;14(2):173-188

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Women's Reproductive Health Research Center, Nashville, TN37232, USA.

Background: Although it has been more than a century since endometriosis was initially described in the literature, understanding the etiology and natural history of the disease has been challenging. However, the broad utility of murine and rat models of experimental endometriosis has enabled the elucidation of a number of potentially targetable processes which may otherwise promote this disease.

Objective: To review a variety of studies utilizing rodent models of endometriosis to illustrate their utility in examining mechanisms associated with development and progression of this disease. Read More

Molecular and Cellular Pathogenesis of Endometriosis.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2018 Jun;14(2):106-116

Department of Molecular Cell Biology and Human Genetics, Institute of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University of Frankfurt, Max-von-Laue-Str. 13, D-60438Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Background: A substantial body of studies supports the view that molecular and cellular features of endometriotic lesions differ from those of eutopic endometrium. Apart from that, evidence exists that the eutopic endometrium from pa-tients with endometriosis differs from that of females without endometriosis.

Objective: Aberrant expression profiles include a number of non-steroid signaling pathways that exert their putative influ-ence on the pathogenesis of endometriosis at least in part via crosstalk(s) with estrogen-mediated mechanisms. Read More

Bladder Injury During Cesarean Delivery.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2013 May;9(2):70-76

Womack Army Medical Center, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 2817 Reilly Road, Fort Bragg, NC 28307, USA.

Cesarean section is the most common surgery performed in the United States with over 30% of deliveries occurring via this route. This number is likely to increase given decreasing rates of vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC) and primary cesarean delivery on maternal request, which carries the inherent risk for intraoperative complications. Urologic injury is the most common injury at the time of either obstetric or gynecologic surgery, with the bladder being the most frequent organ damaged. Read More

Infertility, Pregnancy Loss and Adverse Birth Outcomes in Relation to Maternal Secondhand Tobacco Smoke Exposure.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2013 Feb;9(1):41-49

Department of Environmental Health Sciences, University of Michigan School of Public Health, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109, USA.

A substantial proportion of the etiology involved in female infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes remains idiopathic. Recent scientific research has suggested a role for environmental factors in these conditions. Secondhand tobacco smoke (STS) contains a number of known or suspected reproductive toxins, and human exposure to STS is prevalent worldwide. Read More

Lynch Syndrome: Awareness among Medical Students at a United States Medical School.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2012 Aug;8(3):242-247

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, New York 10065, USA.

INTRODUCTION: Lynch syndrome was first described in the 1950s however until recently it was rarely included in medical school curricula. As a result, many practicing physicians have limited exposure, potentially contributing to significant under diagnosis. As identification of Lynch syndrome prior to malignancy allows for intensified screening, prophylactic surgery and improved patient outcomes, all physicians should be aware of the characteristics of affected families.

Department of Psychiatry, Haukeland University Hospital, P.O. Box 23 Sandviken, N-5812 Bergen, Norway.

BACKGROUND: The treatment of breastfeeding mothers with depression raises several dilemmas, including the possible risk of drug exposure through breast milk for the infant. This article provides background information and presents practical advice and recommendations for the clinician dealing with the treatment of depression and related disorders in the postpartum period. METHODS: An electronic search for relevant articles was performed. Read More

The Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) with Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC): Comprehensive Care for Preterm Infants.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2011 Aug;7(3):288-301

Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and Neurobehavioral Infant and Child Studies, Department of Psychiatry (Psychology) Children's Hospital Boston.

State-of-the-art Newborn Intensive Care Units (NICUs), instrumental in the survival of high-risk and ever-earlier-born preterm infants, often have costly human repercussions. The developmental sequelae of newborn intensive care are largely misunderstood. Developed countries eager to export their technologies must also transfer the knowledge-base that encompasses all high-risk and preterm infants' personhood as well as the neuro-essential importance of their parents.

Innate Immunity in the Female Reproductive Tract: Role of Sex Hormones in Regulating Uterine Epithelial Cell Protection Against Pathogens.

Curr Womens Health Rev 2008 May;4(2):102-117

Department of Physiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH 03756 USA.

The mucosal immune system in the upper female reproductive tract is uniquely prepared to maintain a balance between the presence of commensal bacteria, sexually transmitted bacterial and viral pathogens, allogeneic spermatozoa, and an immunologically distinct fetus. At the center of this dynamic system are the epithelial cells that line the Fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix and vagina. Epithelial cells provide a first line of defense that confers continuous protection, by providing a physical barrier as well as secretions containing bactericidal and virucidal agents. Read More
