The April issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a State-of-the-Art Review on ultrasound imaging of slings and meshes in urogynecology, a study finding that women with advanced pelvic organ prolapse and levator ani muscle avulsion would benefit from mesh repair surgery, a registry study on the pregnancy and neonatal outcomes of COVID-19, a study on perinatal outcome after planned vaginal delivery in monochorionic compared with dichorionic twin pregnancy, and newly updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines (Part 2) on the performance of targeted neurosonography.
The September issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a series of papers on the fetal brain, including a study on the role of prenatal magnetic resonance imaging in fetuses with isolated mild or moderate ventriculomegaly and updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines on the sonographic examination of the fetal central nervous system (Part 1), as well as a study and accompanying video abstract on the treatment and outcome of 370 cases with spontaneous or post-laser twin anemia–polycythemia sequence managed in 17 fetal therapy centers, a study on the use of pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A, placental growth factor or both for first-trimester pre-eclampsia screening, and a study on transrectal high-intensity focused ultrasound for management of rectosigmoid deep infiltrating endometriosis.
Diagnostico de defectos fetales en embarazos gemelares al examen ultrasonográfico de rutina a las 11–13 semanas
Diagnosis of fetal defects in twin pregnancies at routine 11–13-week ultrasound examination
The January issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology is completely free to access and includes a randomized controlled trial on elective delivery at 34 weeks vs routine obstetric care in fetal gastroschisis, a study on the outcome of twin pregnancy with two live fetuses at 11–13 weeks, a comparative analysis of the of the 2-year outcomes in the GRIT and TRUFFLE trials, a study on the ratio of fetal choroid plexus to head size as a first-trimester sonographic marker of open spina bifida, a study comparing brain microstructure after prenatal spina bifida repair by either laparotopy-assisted fetoscopic or open approach, and an analysis of copy-number variations associated with early pregnancy loss.
The performance of cfDNA testing for trisomy 21 in twin pregnancy is similar to that reported in singleton pregnancy and is superior to that of the first-trimester combined test or second-trimester biochemical testing.

“Monochorionic twin pregnancies affected by Type II sIUGR are at a higher risk of perinatal mortality and morbidity compared with Type I. The likelihood of an abnormal outcome is usually not significantly different between sIUGR Types II and III, although the latter has an unpredictable clinical course”, finds a new UOG Journal meta-analysis by Buca et al.
