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.

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.
The August issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a series of papers on different aspects of fetal brain imaging, including studies on neurodevelopmental outcome and the role of magnetic resonance imaging in fetal isolated mild ventriculomegaly, and the sonographic assessment of the Slyvian fissures and their development in fetuses with cortical maldevelopment. Articles on other topics include a systematic review, with an accompanying video abstract, on the effectiveness on fertility outcome of tubal flushing using different contrast media, and a study on core principles for parental engagement in the perinatal mortality review process.
