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.
