UOG is now the fourth leading journal in the Obstetrics and Gynecology category, with an impressive Impact Factor of 8.678. UOG Editor-in-Chief Prof. Anthony Odibo stated: “the continued increase in the Impact Factor of UOG is the result of the dedicated work of our editors, editorial board and reviewers, our authors who continue to entrust the journal with their high-quality, clinically impactful research, and the editorial office staff led by Sarah Hatcher. The UOG team would like to thank wholeheartedly everyone who has contributed to our new Impact Factor.”.
Read the newly updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines on how to perform the routine mid-trimester fetal ultrasound scan.
The June issue of Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology includes a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the diagnostic performance of exome sequencing in fetuses with multisystem malformations, a comprehensive study evaluating the cost-effectiveness of strategies for prevention of preterm birth and a study presenting a new algorithm for stratification of monochorionic twin pregnancies with Type-III sFGR according to fetal death risk. Also in the issue are a nationwide study on postnatal outcome of late-preterm twins in South Korea and an accompanying Editorial on the optimal timing of delivery in twin pregnancies. Finally, in this issue, look out for the newly updated ISUOG Guidelines for the performance of the routine mid-trimester fetal scan and an Opinion providing recommendations for fetal cardiac imaging in patients with degraded acoustic windows.
New UOG Journal video abstract on predictors of fetal death in monochorionic twin pregnancies complicated by Type-III selective fetal growth restriction.
The mid-trimester ultrasound scan is performed mainly for anatomical evaluation of the fetus. In experts’ hands, most clinically important structural anomalies can be detected.
Recent UOG Journal study by Prof Kypros Nicolaides et al. validated an effective and reproducible method for third-trimester prediction of term pre-eclampsia.
In a recent #UOGJournal study, Prof Liona Poon and colleagues identified risk factors for developing preterm preeclampsia despite aspirin prophylaxis.
Ophthalmic artery Doppler in combination with maternal risk factors and blood pressure could potentially replace measurement of PlGF and sFlt-1/PlGF ratio in the prediction of imminent #preeclampsia, in a new UOG Journal study by Lau et al.
The sFlt-1/PlGF ratio performs well in predicting adverse perinatal outcomes but not adverse maternal outcomes in women with suspected or diagnosed preeclampsia.
