The December issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review collating the current evidence on prenatal diagnosis and perinatal outcome of congenital knee dislocation, a multicenter study proposing a new model for prediction of adverse outcome in extremely preterm growth-restricted fetuses requiring early delivery, a large regional study evaluating the role of SARS-CoV-2 infection as a cause of fetal death, a study assessing the impact of choroid plexus size in cases with an abnormal closure of the fourth ventricle, and a prospective study demonstrating the potential of photoacoustic imaging in improving O-RADS risk assessment of adnexal lesions. Also in the issue, we celebrate the award winners announced at the 33rd World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology and thank all contributors to the Journal’s peer-review process in 2023.
The November issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review evaluating the incidence of urological complications in women undergoing Cesarean section for placenta accreta spectrum disorders, a study proposing a new marker to facilitate identification of fetuses with agenesis of the corpus callosum, and two studies providing evidence of an association between epidural analgesia and increased risk of emergency delivery for fetal compromise. The potentially significant impact of the findings of the latter two studies are countered in an accompanying Editorial by Cavoretto and colleagues and in a series of Correspondence articles.
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.
The May issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review investigating the outcome following early vs late selective termination in dichorionic twin pregnancies, a prospective study aiming to estimate the prevalence of endometriosis using transvaginal ultrasound, a study proposing new criteria for predicting outcome in cases of tricuspid valve dysplasia and Ebstein’s anomaly using fetal tricuspid regurgitation waveform analysis, and a large prospective midgestation study examining cardiac function and morphology of fetuses conceived via in-vitro fertilization. The May issue also features a randomized controlled trial evaluating the impact of predictive information regarding the likely outcome of pregnancy on psychological wellbeing of women with a pregnancy of uncertain viability during the waiting period to final diagnosis.
The March issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a study evaluating the cost-effectiveness of performing an ultrasound assessment before cell-free DNA analysis for fetal aneuploidy screening, a study investigating the impact of prenatal exome sequencing on perinatal outcome, a prospective study assessing the potential of lower uterine segment thickness in identifying women at risk of Cesarean delivery following labor induction, and a systematic review and meta-analysis assessing the diagnostic accuracy of individual ultrasound signs for detecting adnexal torsion.
