Labor


Presentation

  • The diagnosis of face presentation was confirmed by the use of intrapartum translabial ultrasound examination. In face presentation, the orbits and nasal bridge are shown in the center of the presenting part at the mid-sagittal plane.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • INTRODUCTION: Breech presentation and twin pregnancy are regarded as stressful situations for medical staff.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This presentation is atypical given the delayed presentation of symptoms after epidural placement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The main goal of this article is to present a rare case of OHVIRA syndrome with intrapartal rupture of obstructed hemivagina.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • OBJECTIVES: Few studies have assessed the impact of induction of labor on breech presentation. This study aims to summarize the effect of induction of labor of breech presentation on perinatal morbidity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Respiratory Abnormalities
Abdominal Pain
  • A 27-year-old woman was admitted to a hospital in Ethiopia because of severe abdominal pain during labor, with cessation of contractions. She had been in labor at home, pushing for 24 hours.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE REPORT A 23-year-old woman presented with lower abdominal pain and was admitted for premature labor at 24-weeks of gestation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Stroke
  • KEYWORDS: Amniotic fluid embolism; Patent foramen ovale; Pregnant women; Stroke[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In 1971 Menzies suffered a severe stroke which incapacitated him physically and put limits on his remaining public appearances. He died on 15 May 1978 in his home at Malvern, Melbourne; he was accorded a state funeral and was privately cremated.[adbonline.anu.edu.au]
Encephalopathy
  • The frequencies of cesarean delivery, as well as of adverse maternal (eg, postpartum hemorrhage, chorioamnionitis) and perinatal (eg, a composite frequency of seizures, sepsis, bone or nerve injury, encephalopathy, or death) outcomes, were compared as[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vaginal Discharge
  • Examination revealed a crowning fetal head, no fetal heart tones, and purulent vaginal discharge. Postpartum, the patient experienced irritative voiding symptoms, vaginal stenosis, and cystoscopic evidence of injury to the bladder base.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Vaginal discharge (lochia). Immediately following birth you will experience a bloody discharge heavier than a regular period. Over time, the discharge will fade to white or yellow and then stop entirely within two months.[webmd.com]
  • You may also notice an increase in mucusy vaginal discharge, which may be tinged with blood – the so-called bloody show. This is perfectly normal, but if you see more than a tinge of blood, be sure to call your caregiver.[babycenter.com]

Workup

  • Subsequent anatomic and hematologic workup was inconclusive. This presentation is atypical given the delayed presentation of symptoms after epidural placement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Capnocytophaga Ochracea
  • Abstract BACKGROUND Capnocytophaga ochracea is a gram-negative anaerobic organism commonly found in human oral flora. It is characteristically sensitive to beta-lactams and resistant to aminoglycosides.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The patient presented with foot drop, which resolved after conservative treatment. We reviewed the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and treatment options for this rare complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We hypothesize that retosiban may be an effective preventative treatment of preterm birth in high-risk multiple pregnancies, an area of unmet clinical need.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Such transfers are regulated by the federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although propionic acidemia (PA) is a devastating inherited metabolic disease, with early diagnosis and advanced treatment strategies prognosis gets better and girls can survive to child-bearing ages.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The most likely source of the maternal symptoms was spiramycin, which was being administered for treatment of toxoplasmosis. 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Although propionic acidemia (PA) is a devastating inherited metabolic disease, with early diagnosis and advanced treatment strategies prognosis gets better and girls can survive to child-bearing ages.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Precise diagnosis of the abovementioned pathology, a pre-labor plan for delivery and postnatal prognosis assessment can significantly contribute to the avoidance of a misdiagnosis of fetal hypoxia and unnecessary operative delivery with marked medico-legal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • The etiology of cervical insufficiency has not been fully recognized and the association between it and prior cesarean delivery is unknown. We experienced two similar characteristic cases of cervical insufficiency following term cesarean delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Congenital airway obstruction is of varied etiology and uncommonly encountered. Prenatal care and imaging have enhanced detection of these abnormalities and allow for multi-disciplinary care planning for airway management at delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • We reviewed the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and treatment options for this rare complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • We discuss the pathophysiologic and contributing factors to this syndrome and its potential complications. Obstetricians & gynecologists, family physicians.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Moreover, stretch-induced stimulation of myometrial contractility was prevented by ERK1/2 inhibitors. Retosiban (10 nM) prevented stretch-induced stimulation of myometrial contractility and phosphorylation of ERK1/2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: This is an extremely rare condition in which careful assessment is required to prevent complications during delivery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • When inducing labor, prompt identification and treatment of anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity reactions are necessary to prevent maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This catastrophic event has a small window of opportunity in which intervention may prevent neonatal death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
