Intrapartum ultrasound assessment of cervical dilatation and its value in detecting active labor We aimed to examine the agreement between ultrasound and digital vaginal examination in assessing cervical dilatation in an African population and to assess the value of ultrasound in detecting active labor.A cross-sectional study was conducted in a teaching hospital in Ghana between April and September of 2016. Anterior-posterior and transverse diameters of cervical dilatation were measured (...) - 2.01 to 1.95 cm. Ultrasound predicted active labor with 0.87 (95% CI 0.75-0.99) as the area under the ROC curve.Ultrasound measurements showed good agreement with digital vaginal examinations in assessing cervical dilatation during labor and ultrasound may be used to detect active labor.
of this study was to examinecervical findings for the prediction and the comparative use of Arabin pessary or cerclage for the prevention of preterm birth in asymptomatic women with high risk factors for preterm labor.The study group was composed of singleton pregnancies (spontaneously conceived) with high risk factors for preterm labor. Cervical length, dilatation of the internal cervical os and funneling, were estimated with transvaginal ultrasound during the first and the second trimesters (...) Comparative Evaluation of Arabin Pessary and Cervical Cerclage for the Prevention of Preterm Labor in Asymptomatic Women with High Risk Factors Preterm labor is one of the most significant obstetric problems associated with high rate of actual and long-term perinatal complications. Despite the creation of scoring systems, uterine activity monitoring, cervical ultrasound and several biochemical markers, the prediction and prevention of preterm labor is still a matter of concern. The aim
Devices for Measuring Cervical Dilation During Labor: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Measurement of cervical dilation is one of the major indicators of labor progression. At present, the criterion standard for this evaluation is digital examination, which results are sometimes inaccurate and extremely dependent on the subject (ie, obstetrician or midwife) experience.In this systematic and meta-analysis review, the authors have gathered the vast majority of the instruments used (...) for measuring cervical dilation and their clinical application; main features, potentialities, and the most significant constraints are underlined for each device.Three of the most popular databases (ie, Web of Science, PubMed, and ClinicalTrials.gov) were used to identify all available cervimeters, by using single or combinations of the following keywords: "cervical," "dilation or dilatation," "cervimetry," "cervix," "uterine," "measurement," "labour or labor," "birth," and "monitoring."

difference that exceeded the effect of amniotomy with oxytocin (mean difference, 21.11 hours). Women in upright positions also were less likely to have a cesarean delivery (RR, 0.71; 95% CI, 0.54–0.94) (43). A second Cochrane meta-analysis of RCTs that examined the effect of position during the second stage of labor found that upright or lateral positions compared with supine positions are associated with fewer “abnormal” fetal heartratepatterns(RR,0.46;95%CI,0.22–0.93),areduc- tion in episiotomies (RR (...) , Blanchard MH, Mercer BM.

Agreement between transperineal ultrasound measurements and digital examinations of cervical dilatation during labor. To compare 2D transperineal ultrasound assessment of cervical dilatation with vaginal examination and to investigate intra-observer variability of the ultrasound method.A prospective observational study was performed at Skane University Hospital, Lund, Sweden between October 2013 and June 2014. Women with one fetus in cephalic presentation at term had the cervical dilatation (...) assessed with ultrasound and digital vaginal examinations during labor. Inter-method agreement between ultrasound and digital examinations and intra-observer repeatability of ultrasound examinations were tested.Cervical dilatation was successfully assessed with ultrasound in 61/86 (71 %) women. The mean difference between cervical dilatation and ultrasound measurement was 0.9 cm (95 % CI 0.47-1.34). Interclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.83 (95 % CI 0.72-0.90). Intra-observer repeatability
Effectiveness of LaborCervicalExamination Simulation in Medical Student Education. To estimate whether simulation training improves medical students' cervicalexamination accuracy.The training paradigm for the laborcervicalexamination exposes patients to additional examinations, lacks a gold standard, and does not objectively assess trainee competence. To address these issues and optimize training, we assessed the effectiveness of cervicalexamination simulation in third-year medical (...) . On average, competence was achieved with 27-44 repetitions.Simulation training dramatically improved student accuracy in laborcervicalexaminations. Because not all students achieved competence, the cumulative summation analyses suggest that more than 100 repetitions would be needed if the goal was for the entire class of students to achieve competence.II.
by the transperineal ultrasonographic parameters, in women achieving vaginal delivery.This was a prospective longitudinal study performed in 315 Chinese women with singleton pregnancy undergoing labor induction at term between December 2016 and December 2017. Paired assessment of cervical dilatation and fetal head station by vaginal examination and transperineal ultrasonographic assessment of fetal head descent (para-sagittal angle of progression and head-perineum distance) were made serially following (...) the commencement of labor induction until full cervical dilatation. The researchers were blinded to the findings of the clinical team's vaginal examination and vice versa. The repeated measure data were analyzed by mixed effect models to identify the significant factors (age ≥35 years, obesity, parity, methods of labor induction, and epidural anesthesia) affecting the relationship between para-sagittal angle of progression and head-perineum distance against fetal head station and cervical dilatation.The total
way.The objective of the study was to determine the differences in labor progress by the use of serial transperineal ultrasound assessment of fetal head descent between women having vaginal and Cesarean delivery.This was a prospective longitudinal study performed in 315 women with singleton pregnancy undergoing labor induction at term between December 2016 and December 2017. Paired assessment of cervical dilatation and fetal head station by vaginal examination and transperineal ultrasonographic (...) vaginal examination and ultrasound assessments was 1,198 with a median of three per woman. The median assessment-to-assessment interval was 4.6 hours (interquartile range 4.3-5.1). Women achieving vaginal delivery (n=261) had steeper slopes of para-sagittal angle of progression and head-perineum distance against fetal head station and cervical dilatation than those achieving Cesarean delivery (n=54). Objectively, an additional decrease of 5.11° and 1.37° in para-sagittal angle of progression
examinations available during labor. Prior cesarean delivery, 5-minute Apgar score less than 5, and arterial cord pH less than 7.0 were exclusions. The course of cervical dilation was modeled using repeated measures analysis, and smoothed curves for nulliparous and parous women were generated separately. Estimates of the median (5th-95th percentile) traverse times between two dilations were computed using interval censored regression. Traverse times (ie, the elapsed time between two given dilation measures (...) Labor Curve Analysis of Medically Indicated Early Preterm Induction of Labor. To analyze the labor curves of nulliparous and multiparous women between 23.0 and 34.0 weeks of gestation who underwent induction of labor and achieved vaginal delivery.This is a retrospective cohort study of all live singletons delivered vaginally after medically indicated induction of labor between 23.0 and 34.0 weeks of gestation from 2011 through 2014 at our institution. We excluded those with one or no cervical

Cervical Dilation on Admission in Term Spontaneous Labor and Maternal and Newborn Outcomes. To examine associations between cervical dilation on admission and maternal and newborn outcomes in term spontaneous labor.This is a retrospective cohort study of 11,368 singleton, term (37-43 6/7 weeks of gestation) spontaneously laboring women delivering in 14 hospitals in Washington State between 2012 and 2014 using chart abstracted data from the Obstetrics Clinical Outcomes Assessment Program. Women (...) with prior cesarean delivery or ruptured membranes on admission were excluded. Pregnancy history, cervical dilation on admission, and outcomes were analyzed. Associations between early (less than 4 cm cervical dilation) and late (4 cm or greater cervical dilation) admission and outcomes were examined using general linear models with a log-link stratifying by parity. Results were reported as adjusted relative risks (RRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs).Early admission compared with late admission
Repeat Measurement of Cervical Length in Women with Threatened Preterm Labor To examine the value of a repeat measurement some days after the first cervical length measurement done at the time of preterm contractions.Retrospective study involving women with singleton pregnancies who presented with preterm contractions at 24 to 33 + 6 weeks of gestation. The cervical length was measured at the time of presentation and some days afterwards.The study population consisted of 17 cases with a preterm (...) length of 10 and 9 mm - the detection rate was 17.6 % with the first cervical length measurement, 47.0 % with the second and 52.9 % if the difference between both measurements was added.Our results indicate that in women with symptoms of preterm labor it is worth to repeat the measurement some days later and to take into account the difference between both measurements.

in duration of the first stage of labor (mean difference, –32.4 minutes; 95% CI, –58.7 to –6.13). However, considering each of these effects, it is difficult to know how factors other than immersion, such as the structure of care (including the presence of an obstetrician–gynecologist and other health care providers and timing and frequency of examinations), affected the outcome. Furthermore, there were no differences in the incidence or severity of perineal trauma (RR, 1.16; 95% CI, 0.99–1.35; five (...) during labor or delivery (10). In a subsequent systematic review and meta-analysis, newborn outcomes after second-stage immersion and birth in water were compared with land birth. Data from the 12 included studies (two randomized trials, three prospective and two retrospective cohort, and five case–control studies) showed no neonatal benefits associated with immersion (18). The most recent and largest meta-analysis and systematic review examining this question included 29 studies. Although
