Impact of point-of-care ultrasound on treatment time for ectopic pregnancy.

Am J Emerg Med 2021 Jun 9;49:226-232. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Emergency Department, Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Medicine, 1 Boston Medical Center Place, Boston, MA 02118, United States of America.

Background: Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is useful in the evaluation of early pregnancy by confirming intrauterine pregnancy and recognizing hemorrhage from ectopic pregnancy. We sought to determine whether transabdominal POCUS by itself or in conjunction with consultative radiology ultrasound (RADUS), reduces Emergency Department (ED) treatment time for patients with ectopic pregnancy requiring operative care, when compared to RADUS alone. A secondary objective was to determine whether the incorporation of POCUS reduces time to operative care for patients with ruptured ectopic pregnancy specifically, when compared to RADUS alone.

Departamento de Toxicología, Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politécnico Nacional (CINVESTAV-IPN), México City, México.

If methotrexate (MTX) fails to resolve cervical ectopic pregnancies (CEP), the remaining surgical options result in the potential loss of the patient's fertility. Therefore, we examined if the embryo reduction technique can resolve the CEP without any complications while conserving the patient's fertility. We report three cases in which CEP didn't respond to MTX but was successfully solved by embryo reduction. Read More

How prevalent are symptoms and risk factors of pelvic inflammatory disease in a sexually conservative population.

Reprod Health 2021 May 28;18(1):109. Epub 2021 May 28.

School of Medicine, The University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan.

Background: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is the inflammation of the adnexa of the uterus, that mainly manifests in a subclinical/chronic context and goes largely underreported. However, it poses a major threat to women's health, as it is responsible for infertility and ectopic pregnancies, as well as chronic pelvic pain. Previous studies in Jordan have not reported PID, attributed mainly to the social structure of the country which largely represents a sexually conservative population. Read More
