The March issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review on the definition, prevalence, clinical relevance and treatment of T-shaped uterus, a European multicenter study on the outcome of right-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia according to prenatal severity indicators and antenatal management, a study on fetal cardiac function at 35–37 weeks’ gestation in pregnancies that subsequently develop pre-eclampsia, and a study on the 2-year outcomes of infants born to women with a short cervix treated with progesterone.
The February issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes State-of-the-Art Reviews on pharmacologic considerations for COVID-19 in pregnancy and the technique and diagnostic potential of first-trimester fetal neurosonography, an individual participant data meta-analysis of Foley catheter vs oral misoprostol for induction of labor, a propensity score matched analysis of the risk of COVID-19-related outcomes in pregnant vs non-pregnant women, a study on the prediction of pre-eclampsia in twin pregnancy by maternal factors and biomarkers at 11–13 weeks’ gestation using data from the EVENTS trial, and a study on vessel morphology depicted by 3D power Doppler ultrasound as a second-stage test in adnexal tumors that are difficult to classify.
The January 30th anniversary special issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology is completely free to access. The issue includes a number of insightful Opinions from leaders in the field, including Stuart Campbell’s recollections of how ISUOG and the Journal were born, Katia Bilardo’s reflections on how the Society has evolved, Kurt Hecher’s account of how intrauterine surgery has advanced over the last three decades and Roberto Romero’s commentary on the prediction and prevention of preterm birth. Also included are high-impact research papers from influential groups which highlight the breadth of topics in which ultrasound plays an instrumental or supporting role.
