The October issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review evaluating the incidence and predictive factors of obstetric anal sphincter injury in primiparous women, a study providing preliminary evidence supporting the feasibility and efficacy of prenatal open spina bifida repair in twin pregnancy and two studies assessing the utility of glycosylated fibronectin as a new biomarker for pre-eclampsia screening in mixed and Asian populations. The issue also features a study demonstrating the efficacy and safety of in-utero treatment of sustained fetal supraventricular arrhythmia in late preterm and term fetuses and an accompanying Editorial on the topic.
The September issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review examining the impact of concurrent selective fetal growth restriction on the outcome of pregnancies with twin–twin transfusion syndrome following laser surgery, a study investigating the prevalence, pathophysiology and impact of a midline cystic structure recently reported in some fetuses with open spina bifida, a prospective study aiming to determine the best strategy for prediction of hypertensive disorders at 36 weeks’ gestation, and a large study of 25,329 patients evaluating the effect of reproductive history on the outcome of in-vitro fertilization.
The August issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review of studies developing reference charts for fetal biometry of the corpus callosum, a large study investigating the implication of third-trimester screening accuracy for small-for-gestational age and additive value of third-trimester growth-trajectory indicators in predicting severe adverse perinatal outcome in low-risk pregnancies, a study on diagnostic sonographic features and management of intramural pregnancy, and a study proposing markers for first-trimester prediction of ventriculomegaly.
The July issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review investigating the prevalence of adenomyosis in women with subfertility, a review focusing on the definition of the uterine junctional zone and its appearance in adenomyosis, a study proposing sonographic descriptors for instant diagnosis of 20 major fetal anomalies and a population-level study evaluating the incidence, risk factors and timing of pregnancy loss in major congenital heart disease.
The June issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a prospective study investigating the applicability of the Fetal Medicine Foundation screening algorithm to pre-eclampsia screening in Denmark, a study evaluating the clinical value of expanded non-invasive prenatal screening compared with chromosomal microarray analysis, a systematic review examining the impact of fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion in cases with congenital diaphragmatic hernia according to disease severity, and a study comparing the outcome following selective termination of the presenting twin vs non-presenting twin. This issue also includes the newly updated ISUOG Practice Guideline on the performance of fetal cardiac screening.
