A fetal abnormality is detected for the first time on routine third-trimester ultrasound examination in 1 in 200 pregnancies
Routine ultrasound examination at 35–37 weeks' gestation may reveal new fetal abnormalities that could not be diagnosed at earlier examinations.
The October issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains the latest research on the procedure-related risk of miscarriage following amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling, including a cohort study and Systematic Review providing updated estimates of this risk. Articles on other topics include studies on the effect of sildenafil treatment on neonatal pulmonary hemodynamics and lung function in lambs with diaphragmatic hernia, the value of assessment of fetal head descent during active pushing before operative vaginal delivery, and the association between early-pregnancy events and subsequent antenatal, delivery and neonatal outcomes.
We are pleased to invite all ISUOG members to the Annual General Meeting of the Society on Sunday 13 October 2019 at 9:50 AM at the Estrel Congress Centre, Convention Hall II, Berlin, during the 29th World Congress.
Risk of miscarriage following amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling: systematic review of literature and updated meta-analysis
With less than six weeks to go for the 29th World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology, the September Newsletter has more information and updates about what to expect from the Congress. Do also check out the highlights for the September issue of the White Journal, including the study on the impact of the HYPITAT-I trial, and the new Virtual issue on NIPT. The coming months are going to be busy for us at ISUOG with many Education and Basic Training courses in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020, including the Education course ‘Endometriosis and gynecologic oncology: do they have something in common?’ in November 2019. Read the newsletter to find out more.
The September issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology contains the latest research on fetal macrosomia, including articles on the associated maternal and neonatal complications and its prediction by third-trimester ultrasound. Articles on other topics include a study on cardiac maladaptation in obese pregnant women at term and a study on hemoperitoneum as a precursor of deep pelvic endometriosis. Also out this month are a new Virtual Issue on non-invasive prenatal testing and a study on the impact of the HYPITAT-I trial on obstetric management and outcome in pregnancies complicated by gestational hypertension or mild pre-eclampsia in The Netherlands, which has an accompanying press release.
In 2009, the Hypertension and Preeclampsia Intervention Trial At near Term-I (HYPITAT- I) trial showed that inducing labor in women with gestational hypertension or preeclampsia at the end of pregnancy reduces the number of high risk situations for the mother, without compromising the health of newborns. A new analysis evaluated the impact of the HYPITAT-I findings on timing of labor and subsequent outcomes for mother and child in the Netherlands.
