January 2024 UOG Highlights

The January issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review exploring the value of whole-genome sequencing in the diagnosis of congenital anomalies, a randomized controlled trial investigating the utility of visual biofeedback during the second stage of labor in facilitating maternal pushing, a study on the diagnosis of superficial endometriosis using transvaginal ultrasound, and a study demonstrating the potential of deep learning in improving fetal heart screening. This issue also features the new ISUOG Practice Guidelines on the performance of third-trimester obstetric ultrasound scan.

December 2023 UOG Highlights

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.

November 2023 UOG Highlights

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.

October 2023 UOG Highlights

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.

September 2023 UOG Highlights

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.

Aug 1, 2023 Journal highlights

August 2023 UOG Highlights

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.
