Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, 222, Banpo-daero, Seocho-gu, Seoul, 06591, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: To investigate whether women with a short cervical length (CL), but delivered at term in the first pregnancy might have increased risks of having short cervix and spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB) in the subsequent pregnancies.

Barriers to follow-up after an abnormal cervical cancer screening result and the role of male partners: a qualitative study.

BMJ Open 2021 Sep 14;11(9):e049901. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Clinical Department, University of North Carolina Project, Lilongwe, Central Region, Malawi.

Introduction: Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Malawi, but preventable through screening. Malawi primarily uses visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) for screening, however, a follow-up for positive screening results remains a major barrier, in rural areas. We interviewed women who underwent a community-based screen-and-treat campaign that offered same-day treatment with thermocoagulation, a heat-based ablative procedure for VIA-positive lesions, to understand the barriers in accessing post-treatment follow-up and the role of male partners in contributing to, or overcoming these barriers.

How do age and social environment affect the dynamics of death hazard and survival in patients with breast or gynecological cancer in France?

Int J Cancer 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

'ANTICIPE' U1086 INSERM-UCN, Normandie Université UNICAEN, Centre François Baclesse, Caen, France.

Several studies have investigated the association between net survival and social inequalities in people with cancer, highlighting a varying influence of deprivation depending on the type of cancer studied. However, few of these studies have accounted for the effect of social inequalities over the follow-up period, and/or according to the age of the patients. Thus, using recent and more relevant statistical models, we investigated the effect of social environment on net survival in women with breast or gynecological cancer in France. Read More

FIGO good practice recommendations on progestogens for prevention of preterm delivery.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2021 Oct;155(1):16-18

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Women at high risk of preterm birth (either a previous spontaneous preterm birth and/or sonographic short cervix) with a singleton gestation should be offered daily vaginal progesterone or weekly 17-OHPC treatment to prevent preterm birth. Benefit is most significant in those with prior history of preterm birth and a short cervix. For women with a previous spontaneous preterm birth and a cervix ≥30 mm the effectiveness of progesterone is uncertain. Read More

FIGO good practice recommendations on cervical cerclage for prevention of preterm birth.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2021 Oct;155(1):19-22

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Cervical cerclage is an intervention which when given to the right women can prevent preterm birth and second-trimester fetal losses. A history-indicated cerclage should be offered to women who have had three or more preterm deliveries and/or mid-trimester losses. An ultrasound-indicated cerclage should be offered to women with a cervical length <25 mm if they have had one or more spontaneous preterm birth and/or mid-trimester loss. Read More

FIGO good practice recommendations on the use of pessary for reducing the frequency and improving outcomes of preterm birth.

Int J Gynaecol Obstet 2021 Oct;155(1):23-25

Department of Women and Children's Health, King's College, London, UK.

A pessary is a device made of synthetic material that is placed in the vagina and has been used for prevention of preterm birth. It has been suggested that a potential mechanism of the pessary is alteration of the cervico-uterine angle to a more posterior position, which reduces cervical compression in women with a singleton pregnancy and a short cervical length. Pessaries should not be used in routine clinical care to reduce the frequency of preterm birth or to improve outcomes (e. Read More
