Screening for breech presentation using universal late-pregnancy ultrasonography: A prospective cohort study and cost effectiveness analysis.

PLoS Med 2019 Apr 16;16(4):e1002778. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Cambridge, NIHR Cambridge Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre, Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Background: Despite the relative ease with which breech presentation can be identified through ultrasound screening, the assessment of foetal presentation at term is often based on clinical examination only. Due to limitations in this approach, many women present in labour with an undiagnosed breech presentation, with increased risk of foetal morbidity and mortality. This study sought to determine the cost effectiveness of universal ultrasound scanning for breech presentation near term (36 weeks of gestational age [wkGA]) in nulliparous women. Read More

Precipitous Labor and Emergency Department Delivery.

Emerg Med Clin North Am 2019 May;37(2):265-276

Department of Emergency Medicine, MedStar Georgetown University, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, 3800 Reservoir Road, Washington, DC 20007, USA.

A precipitous delivery can be among the most stressful events an emergency physician encounters. The physician must assess 2 patients (mother and fetus) and be prepared to manage a variety of complications that may arise during delivery. A majority of precipitous deliveries result in good outcomes for both mother and baby, but emergency physicians must be prepared to manage feared complications, such as tight nuchal cords, shoulder dystocia, and breech presentation.

Vaginal delivery of the second twin in unengaged cephalic presentation.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2019 Mar 21:1-5. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

i Department of Maternal-Fetal Medicine , l'Hôpital de la Pitié Salpêtrière , Paris , France.

In accordance with women's preferences guidelines, referring to population-based and randomized trials, which recommends counseling women with vertex-first twins to attempt a vaginal delivery. Yet, the rising rates of twin caesareans are associated with the decline in skills of senior and junior obstetricians. Although noncephalic second twins have been in the focus of interest, prompt delivery of cephalic second twins can be trickier when the head does not engage. Read More

[Water aerobics as a means for the prenatal correction in the case of breech presentation of the fetus].

Vopr Kurortol Fizioter Lech Fiz Kult 2019;96(1):30-36

Research Centre of Balneotherapy and Rehabilitation - the branch of the North-Caucasian Federal Research and Clinical Centre, Russian Federal Medico-Biological Agency, Sochi, Russia; Sochi State University, Sochi, Russia.

Background: The delivery of the fetus in breech presentation remains one of the most serious challenge for obstetricians. In the cases of pregnancy of more than 29 weeks, it is recommended to carry out the activities aimed at translating breech presentation into cephalic presentation by means of the external preventive rotation of the fetus to the head with the use various complexes of gymnastic exercises as well as other methods applied for the correction of the abnormal fetal presentation including water aerobics.

Aim: The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the method for the prenatal correction of the pathological presentation of the fetus based on the use of the water aerobics procedures. Read More

Is induction of labor a reasonable option for breech presentation?

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Port Royal Maternity Unit, Cochin Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Paris, France.

Introduction: Whereas spontaneous onset of labor and vaginal delivery for breech presentation is considered to be a safe and effective option in selected cases, the safety of induction of labor is not established yet. The objectives of this study were to describe the outcomes of pregnancy in women induced with a fetus in breech presentation and compare the outcomes with those undergoing planned cesarean delivery.

Material And Methods: We performed a secondary analysis of the observational prospective multicenter PREMODA study, including all singleton breech deliveries after 37 weeks in 174 centers in France and Belgium. Read More

Background: Women may be unaware of the potential impact on subsequent deliveries of the decision to undergo primary breech cesarean (PBC) delivery rather than attempt external cephalic version (ECV). We investigated cesarean delivery rates and adverse maternal outcomes in the subsequent delivery following management of breech presentation by ECV versus PBC.

Methods: This retrospective study identified women who delivered subsequent to breech presentation managed by attempted ECV or PBC. Read More

Does vaginal breech delivery have a future despite low volumes for training? Results of a questionnaire.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2018 Oct 19;229:123-126. Epub 2018 Aug 19.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis Location West, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Objective: Since publication of the Term Breech Trial in 2000 only 15% of term breech presentations is delivered vaginally in the Netherlands. This declined exposure to vaginal breech deliveries (VBD) is a problem for those who still need to be trained. The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of training of the Dutch gynecological residents, and their intentions on guiding VBDs during their careers. Read More

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

Introduction: The clinical management of breech presentations at term is still a controversially discussed issue among clinicians. Clear predictive criteria for planned vaginal breech deliveries are desperately needed to prevent adverse fetal and maternal outcomes and to reduce elective cesarean section rates. The green-top guideline considers an estimated birth weight of 3. Read More

Effect of perchlorate and thiocyanate exposure on thyroid function of pregnant women from South-West England: a cohort study.

Thyroid Res 2018 6;11. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

5Department of Endocrinology, Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Exeter, UK.

Background: Iodine is important for thyroid hormone synthesis, and iodine deficiency in pregnancy may impair fetal neurological development. As perchlorate and thiocyanate inhibit sodium-iodide symporter reducing the transport of iodine from circulation into the thyroid follicular cells, environmental exposure to these substances in pregnancy may impair maternal thyroid hormone synthesis. We aimed to explore the impact of perchlorate and thiocyanate exposure on thyroid status in a cohort of pregnant mothers from South West England. Read More
