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 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.
