Z Geburtshilfe Neonatol 2019 Apr 17;223(2):73-84. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Institut für Rettungs- und Notfallmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Schleswig Holstein.

Maternal emergencies can significantly affect the outcome of pregnancy and childbirth. Since obstetrical emergencies may happen at any time during pregnancy an emergency transport to a hospital nearby may not always be possible. So, obstetrical emergency-management may already become mandatory in a prehospital setting. Read More

Successful Management of Complicated Uterine Displacement Caused by Unilateral Incarceration of the Bicornuate Uterus.

Case Rep Obstet Gynecol 2019 7;2019:3205610. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Nippon Medical School Hospital, 1-1-5 Sendagi, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Uterine incarceration is a serious complication of pregnancy, in which the gravid uterus becomes trapped in the posterior pelvis. When labor occurs, delivery does not progress, and the uterus may rupture. Therefore, preoperative diagnosis of uterine incarceration is important, and a caesarian section is indispensable except when the polarity of the uterus can be successfully restored. Read More

Development of an Anatomical Silicone Model for Simulation-based Medical Training of Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injury Repair in Bangladesh.

Cureus 2019 Jan 31;11(1):e3991. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Emergency Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, CAN.

Advancing global healthcare in developing countries has traditionally been an area of interest for many North American medical organizations, as they strive to improve patient outcomes by helping to control disease and death-related illnesses. Women's healthcare in developing countries, in particular, presents a unique set of complexities, revealing high maternal mortality statistics surrounding pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, which is often tied to home births without medically trained attendants. In September 2018, Team Broken Earth, a Canadian-based outreach initiative, hosted a three-day women's healthcare course in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which included simulation-based training stations, for the purpose of advancing clinical skills and education in regards to local labor and delivery.

Surgical emergencies in pregnancy in the era of modern diagnostics and treatment.

Taiwan J Obstet Gynecol 2019 Mar;58(2):177-182

R.G.Kar Medical College and Hospital, India.

Pregnancy can be complicated with different surgical emergencies which may potentially endanger the mother as well as foetus. In the modern era of advanced diagnostics and treatments, neither of them in response to a surgical emergency in a pregnant woman should be delayed. Appropriate early intervention is essential to decrease the morbidity and mortality. Read More

J Int Med Res 2019 Mar 18:300060519835068. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

3rd Department of Gynaecology, Medical University of Lublin, Lublin, Poland.

Rates of caesarean section have increased over recent years and so too have associated complications, one of which is a caesarean scar defect (CSD). The defect may cause gynaecological symptoms, such as menometrorrhagia, infertility, chronic abdominal/pelvic pain or it may be asymptomatic. The presence of CSD may lead to obstetrical sequalae such as preterm delivery, uterine rupture, caesarean scar pregnancy or abnormal placenta implantation. Read More

A case of 20-week abortion in a rare communicating rudimentary horn of a misinterpreted unicornuate uterus, incorrectly diagnosed as bicornuate: A serious hazard!

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2019 Apr 27;235:133-135. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of Neuroscience, Reproductive Sciences and Dentistry, School of Medicine, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.

Female genital malformations, as the unicornuate uterus, are deviations from normal anatomy that could impair the reproductive potential of a woman or her health. We present a rare case of a 20-week spontaneous abortion in a 24 years old patient affected by a misunderstood unicornuate uterus with communicating rudimentary horn, previously diagnosed as bicornuate, and for this reason subjected to induction of abortive labor, using mifepristone and gemeprost. Following the ultrasound exam and MRI, performed due to the failure of the abortive procedure, revealed the diagnosis of unicornuate uterus with (not clear) communicating accessory horn pregnancy, then treated with laparotomy.

Monitoring quality of obstetric care from hospital discharge databases: A Delphi survey to propose a new set of indicators based on maternal health outcomes.

PLoS One 2019 12;14(2):e0211955. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Inserm UMR 1153, Obstetrical, Perinatal and Pediatric Epidemiology Research Team (Epopé) Center for Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne Paris Cité, DHU Risks in pregnancy, Paris Descartes University, Paris, France.

Objectives: Most indicators proposed for assessing quality of care in obstetrics are process indicators and do not directly measure health effects, and cannot always be identified from routinely available databases. Our objective was to propose a set of indicators to assess the quality of hospital obstetric care from maternal morbidity outcomes identifiable in permanent hospital discharge databases.

Methods: Various maternal morbidity outcomes potentially reflecting quality of obstetric care were first selected from a systematic literature review. Read More

Pregnancy in Women With a History of Uterine Rupture.

Obstet Gynecol Surv 2018 Dec;73(12):703-708

Professor and Chair, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR.

Importance: With increased rates of primary and repeat cesarean deliveries, the potential for uterine rupture and management of women with a history of uterine rupture has also increased. Taking care of a pregnant woman with a prior uterine rupture requires understanding of the risks, the need for additional surveillance, and the limitations of our knowledge about how rupture affects subsequent pregnancies.

Objective: The aims of this study were to review the literature on pregnancy after uterine rupture and to summarize the evidence to help the obstetrician care for a pregnant woman with a history of uterine rupture. Read More

Background: Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome (HWWS) is an uncommon congenital anomaly of the female urogenital tract, characterised by uterus didelphys, obstructed hemivagina, and ipsilateral renal agenesis. We reported the difficult pregnancy course complicated by an extremely rare and unique case of this syndrome associated with ectrodactyly, a clinical combination never described in literature.

Case Presentation: A 28- year-old nulliparous woman previously diagnosed for HWWS associated with ectrodactyly of the right foot and with a history of abdominal left hemi-hysterectomy, ipsilateral salpingectomy, vaginal reconstruction when she was an adolescent. Read More

Successful pregnancy after uterine artery embolization for uterine arterovenous malformation: a rare case report.

Int J Womens Health 2018 21;10:745-750. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Università degli studi di Salerno - Dipartimento di Medicina, Chirurgia e Odontoiatria "Scuola Medica Salernitana", Salerno, Italy,

Objective: This paper reports on a rare case of pregnancy after uterine artery embolization (UAE) for uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Debate exists about persistence of fertility in women after UAE. Adverse effects of this technique can modify both uterine echostructure, inducing necrosis and infarction, endometrial atrophy and uterine artery rupture, and ovarian reserve, causing persistent amenorrhea.

Case of uterine rupture after multiple intrauterine operations and uterine artery embolization.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2019 Mar 3;45(3):734-738. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Aso Iizuka Hospital, Iizuka, Fukuoka, Japan.

Uterine rupture is rare but may result in both maternal and fetal death. The factors involved in such deaths depend on each case, but uterine artery embolization (UAE), the common treatment for hemorrhage, is possibly one factor. UAE may be related to uterine rupture or placenta accreta, but few data exist regarding UAE and uterine rupture. Read More
