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

Term cesarean breech delivery in the first pregnancy is associated with an increased risk for maternal and neonatal morbidity in the subsequent delivery: a national cohort study.

Arch Gynecol Obstet 2020 May 14. Epub 2020 May 14.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital Marburg, Marburg, Germany.

Purpose: To determine whether there is an association between term cesarean breech delivery in the first pregnancy and maternal and neonatal morbidities in the subsequent pregnancy and delivery.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective, nationwide Finnish population-based cohort study, including all deliveries from January 2000 to December 2017. We included all women with the first two consecutive singleton deliveries of which the first one was a breech delivery regardless of mode of delivery (n = 11,953), and constructed a data set in which the first two deliveries for these women were connected.

Marginal placental cord insertion: the need for follow up?

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2020 May 13:1-7. Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

The objectives of this study were (1) to estimate the association between marginal placental cord insertion (PCI) and small for gestational age (SGA) and other adverse perinatal outcomes and (2) to determine if pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A) levels was altered in these patients. It was a retrospective cohort study of singleton pregnancies undergoing ultrasound between 2016 and 2018. Marginal PCI was defined as a distance of ≤2 cm from placental edge to PCI site, visualized in both sagittal and transverse planes, and diagnosed between 16 and 32 weeks. Read More

FRABAT Frankfurt Breech at Term Study Group, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Goethe-University, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, 60590, Frankfurt, Germany.

Introduction: 3-4% of pregnant women present with a fetal breech position at term. National societies regard vaginal breech delivery as a safe option, but only for a specific and thoroughly counseled group of patients. To avoid adverse outcome, many practitioners recommend elective cesarean section once their patients go past the estimated due date. 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.

Proactive versus standard support of labour in nulliparous women; study protocol for a randomized, controlled trial.

Trials 2020 Apr 23;21(1):358. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, St. Olav's Hospital, Trondheim University Hospital, Trondheim, Norway.

Background: Prolonged latent phase of labour often results in a traumatic birth experience. Prolonged labour is associated with more operative deliveries, haemorrhage, fetal asphyxia and poor birth experience. Women with prolonged labour in a former pregnancy more often demand caesarean section in the next, due to their negative birth experience. 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.

Understanding Factors Leading to Primary Cesarean Section and Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region (North-Eastern Italy), 2005-2015.

Sci Rep 2020 Jan 15;10(1):380. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Institute for Maternal & Child Health, IRCCS "Burlo Garofolo", Trieste, Italy.

Although there is no evidence that elevated rates of cesarean sections (CS) translate into reduced maternal/child perinatal morbidity or mortality, CS have been increasingly overused almost everywhere, both in high and low-income countries. The primary cesarean section (PCS) has become a major driver of the overall CS (OCS) rate, since it carries intrinsic risk of repeat CS (RCS) in future pregnancies. In our study we examined patterns of PCS, pl compared with planned TOLAC anned PCS (PPCS), vaginal birth after 1 previous CS (VBAC-1) and associated factors in Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG), a region of North-Eastern Italy, collecting data from its 11 maternity centres (coded from A to K) during 2005-2015.

The influence of the fetal leg position on the outcome in vaginally intended deliveries out of breech presentation at term - A FRABAT prospective cohort study.

PLoS One 2019 2;14(12):e0225546. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

FRABAT FRAnkfurt Breech At Term Study Group; Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, School of Medicine, Goethe-University, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, Frankfurt, Germany.

Introduction: Vaginal delivery out of a breech presentation in pregnancies at term are being re-implemented into clinical practice. Still, recommendations regarding exclusion criteria leading to caesarean sections are based on expert opinions, not on evidence-based guidelines. The difference in perinatal outcome and course of delivery in births with babies in frank breech position and babies in incomplete or complete breech presentation never has been investigated in a large patient cohort.

The majority of early term elective cesarean sections can be postponed.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2019 Nov 21:1-6. Epub 2019 Nov 21.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland.

To minimize the risk of neonatal respiratory morbidity it is recommended that elective cesarean sections should not be done before 39-week gestation unless medically indicated. However, elective cesarean sections are still being performed at early term (at 37-38 weeks gestation) without sound medical indications. In this study, we evaluated the indications for elective cesarean sections performed at early term to assess the proportion of procedures that could possibly have been postponed until ≥39 weeks to avoid neonatal respiratory morbidity.

Outcomes of "one-day trial of vaginal breech delivery of singleton pregnancy" at 37-38 weeks' gestation at a Japanese perinatal center.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2019 Nov 11:1-4. Epub 2019 Nov 11.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Japanese Red Cross Katsushika Maternity Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

In Japan, the lack of obstetricians has made it impossible for a strict 24-h delivery monitoring system for high risk deliveries such as vaginal breech delivery at many obstetric facilities. The outcomes in the trial of vaginal breech delivery of singleton pregnancy limited one day at 37-38 weeks' gestation were examined. A planned induction of vaginal breech delivery at 37-38 weeks' gestation was performed in 72 women who got consent form April 2006 to March 2016 as follows: (1) insertion of a balloon catheter into the uterine cervix filled with a sterile saline fluid of 400-500 mL, (2) intravenous administration of oxytocin after confirming of the natural falling out by itself of the balloon catheter, and (3) selection of cesarean delivery when vaginal delivery cannot be expected by evening.

VBAC: antenatal predictors of success.

Acta Biomed 2019 09 6;90(3):300-309. Epub 2019 Sep 6.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Bari "A. Moro" Bari, Italy.

To determine antenatal factors that may predict successful vaginal birth after Caesarean section (VBAC), to develop a relevant antenatal scoring system and a nomogram for prediction of vaginal birth after caesarean delivery. A non recurring indication for previous Caesarean section (CS), such as breech presentation or foetal distress, is associated with a much higher successful VBAC rate than recurrent indications, such as cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD). Prior vaginal deliveries are excellent prognostic indicators of successful VBAC, especially if the vaginal delivery follows the prior CS. Read More

[Breech delivery 'on all fours'].

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2019 09 9;163. Epub 2019 Sep 9.

Maxima Medisch Centrum, afd. Gynaecologie en Verloskunde, Veldhoven.

Since the publication of the results of the Term Breech Trial (TBT) in 2000 the number of planned Caesarean sections for breech presentation has increased dramatically, at the expense of vaginal breech deliveries. The favourable effect of a planned Caesarean section for breech presentation on perinatal outcomes described in the TBT could not, however, be reproduced in later trials. A planned Caesarean section does carry an increased risk of maternal complications; furthermore, a previous Caesarean section leads to higher risks for both mother and child in any subsequent pregnancy.

Adherence to guidelines and suboptimal practice in term breech delivery with perinatal death- a population-based case-control study in Norway.

BMC Pregnancy Childbirth 2019 Sep 9;19(1):330. Epub 2019 Sep 9.

Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway.

Background: In a recent population-based study we reported excess risk of neonatal mortality associated with vaginal breech delivery. In this case-control study we examine whether deviations from Norwegian guidelines are more common in breech deliveries resulting in intrapartum or neonatal deaths than in breech deliveries where the offspring survives, and if these deaths are potentially avoidable.

Material And Methods: Case-control study completed as a perinatal audit including term breech deliveries of singleton without congenital anomalies in Norway from 1999 to 2015. Read More

Acta Clin Croat 2018 Dec;57(4):762-767

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center, Zagreb, Croatia.

- Cervical ripening can be promoted in many ways, but mechanical methods are among the oldest. Like all other methods, this one also has its pros and cons. Disadvantages compared to pharmacological methods include some maternal discomfort upon manipulation of the cervix, a theoretical increase in the risk of maternal and neonatal infection from the introduction of a foreign body, potential disruption of a low-lying placenta, and increase in the need of oxytocin induction of labor.
