481. Methylergometrine during the early puerperium; a prospective randomized double blind study. (Abstract)

Methylergometrine during the early puerperium; a prospective randomized double blind study. The purpose of the study was to determine the efficacy of 72-hour prophylactic oral methylergometrine in reducing postpartum hemorrhage and endometritis during the early puerperium, and the effect of methylergometrine on lochia and requests for analgesics.A prospective randomized double-blind study was undertaken; a total of 217 women received 0.2 mg methylergometrine intravenously after delivery (...) puerperium has no effect on lochia. Endometritis and postpartum hemorrhage were rare in both groups. There was no increase in requests for analgesics among women given oral methylergometrine.

482. Antimicrobial prophylaxis in pregnancy: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial with cefetamet-pivoxil in pregnant women with a poor obstetric history. (Abstract)

randomized to receive a single oral dose of 2 gm of cefetamet-pivoxil or a placebo at a gestational age between 28 and 32 weeks. Patients were assessed at delivery and 1 week post partum for pregnancy outcome, postpartum endometritis, human immunodeficiency virus-1 and gonococcal infections.A total of 253 (79%) women gave birth at the maternity hospital, of whom 210 (83%) attended the follow-up clinic. Overall, 18.1% of these pregnant women were human immunodeficiency virus-1 seropositive, whereas 9.5 (...) % had antibodies against Treponema pallidum. There was a significant difference between cefetamet-pivoxil- and placebo-treated women in infant birth weight (2927 gm vs 2772 gm, p = 0.03) and low birth weight (< 2500 gm) rates (18.7% vs 32.8%, p = 0.01, odds ratio 2.1, 95% confidence interval 1.2 to 3.8). The stillbirth rate was 2.2% in the cefetamet-pivoxil group and 4.2% in the placebo group (not significant). Postpartum endometritis was found in 17.3% in the intervention arm versus 31.6

483. Effects of placental delivery method and intraoperative glove changing on postcesarean febrile morbidity. (Abstract)

delivery; Group C (n = 27)--glove change with manual placental delivery; and Group D (n = 28)--glove change with expressed placental delivery. Glove change was performed by removal of a second glove after delivery of the fetal head. Variables examined included febrile morbidity, endometritis, maximums and durations of elevated temperatures, as well as other demographic, intrapartum, and postpartum variables. Febrile morbidity and endometritis rates were not significantly different between the four (...) groups. When the groups were combined so as to compare no glove change versus glove change (Groups A and B vs. C and D) and manual versus expressed placental delivery (Groups A and C vs. B and D), there were no significant differences in either febrile morbidity (relative risk: 0.7, 95% CI: 0.3-1.4 and relative risk: 1.4, 95% CI: 0.6-3.5) or endometritis (relative risk: 1.2, 95% CI: 0.5-2.8 and relative risk: 1.5, 95% CI: 0.6-3.6), respectively. There were no statistically significant differences

485. Evidence of Chlamydia infection in a Belfast antenatal population. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Evidence of Chlamydia infection in a Belfast antenatal population. Chlamydia trachomatis is an important cause of postpartum endometritis and neonatal conjunctivitis. However, the prevalence of chlamydial genital infection varies considerably from one population group to another. A study was thus conducted to determine the incidence of C trachomatis infection of the cervix in an unselected group of women attending a Belfast antenatal clinic. One hundred and six patients were screened

of short and long interpregnancy intervals on maternal death, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, third trimester bleeding, premature rupture of membranes, postpartum haemorrhage, puerperal endometritis, and anaemia.Short (<6 months) and long (>59 months) interpregnancy intervals were observed for 2.8% and 19.5% of women, respectively. After adjustment for major confounding factors, compared with those conceiving at 18 to 23 months after a previous birth, women with interpregnancy (...) intervals of 5 months or less had higher risks for maternal death (odds ratio 2.54; 95% confidence interval 1.22 to 5.38), third trimester bleeding (1.73; 1.42 to 2.24), premature rupture of membranes (1.72; 1.53 to 1.93), puerperal endometritis (1.33; 1.22 to 1.45), and anaemia (1.30; 1.18 to 1.43). Compared with women with interpregnancy intervals of 18 to 23 months, women with interpregnancy intervals longer than 59 months had significantly increased risks of pre-eclampsia (1.83; 1.72 to 1.94

) was managed conservatively with bed rest only. At the time of admission to the study, there were no clinical signs of infection, fetal distress, or active labor in either group. All patients were delivered if the pregnancy had reached 35 weeks of gestation or later, had established labor, or developed evidence of chorioamnionitis or fetal distress. Prolongation for more than 72 hours was greater in group 1 than in group 2. There was no difference in the incidence of chorioamnionitis, postpartum (...) endometritis, or placental infection in the groups. However, the incidence of a low Apgar score (7 < at 5 min), requiring artificial ventilation, and infection was more common in group 1. It is concluded that the use of antibiotics and tocolytics might make the management of PROM more complicated.

488. The effect of placental management at cesarean delivery on operative blood loss. (Abstract)

delivery at cesarean section. Operative blood loss was measured directly.Blood loss measured at cesarean delivery was greater in the manually delivered group (967 +/- 248 ml) than in the spontaneously delivered group (666 +/- 271 ml, p < 0.0001). The incidence of postpartum endometritis was sevenfold greater in the manual than the spontaneous group (23% vs 3%, respectively; p < 0.05).We conclude that spontaneous expulsion of the placenta at cesarean delivery results in less operative blood loss (...) and a lower incidence of postoperative endometritis.

489. A randomized clinical trial of two surgical techniques for cesarean section. (Abstract)

morbidity was defined as a temperature > or =38 degrees C on two occasions 4 hours (hr) apart excluding the first postoperative day. Endometritis was defined as postpartum temperature > or =38 degrees C on two occasions 4 hr apart, with uterine tenderness and/or foul-smelling lochia. One hundred forty-nine and 150 patients were allocated to group 1 and to group 2, respectively. A shorter median (range) opening time [4 min (2-21) vs. 6 min (2-19), respectively, p < 0.01] and a shorter median (range (...) ) operative time [30 min (10-65) vs. 40 min (20-110), respectively, p < 0.01] were observed in group 1. No difference was found in terms of intraoperative complications, proportion of patients who required transfusion, endometritis, sepsis, febrile morbidity, and urinary tract infections. A higher rate of wound infections was found in group 2 than in group 1 [14 of 150 (9.3%) vs. 2 of 149 (1.3%), respectively, p < 0.01]. The Joel-Cohen incision without peritonealization resulted in a shorter opening

cefoxitin or placebo administration after umbilical cord clamping. Postpartum complications including febrile morbidity, wound infection, endometritis, urinary tract infection, pneumonia and transient postpartum fever were recorded, as were the duration of hospital stay and the need for therapeutic antibiotics.Wound infection was the most common complication occurring in 13.3% and 12.5% of women in the placebo and cefoxitin groups, respectively. Prophylactic antibiotics did not decrease febrile (...) morbidity, wound infection, endometritis, urinary tract infection and pneumonia. Women who received cefoxitin stayed on average a day less in hospital than those who received placebo (6.9 vs 7.8 days, risk difference 0.94 CI 1.57 - 0.31 days). Eleven women (4.6%) in the placebo group and eight (3.4%) in the cefoxitin group had microbiological evidence of wound infection. Staphylococcus aureus was the most common pathogen (43%) isolated. Similar proportions in both groups (6.3% placebo and 5.1% cefoxitin

Vaginal preparation with povidone iodine and postcesarean infectious morbidity: a randomized controlled trial. To determine whether vaginal preparation with povidone iodine before cesarean decreased the incidence of postpartum infectious morbidity.Participants were randomly assigned to vaginal preparation with povidone iodine (n = 247) or no preparation (n = 251). Postpartum infectious morbidity included fever, defined as temperature of 38C or greater after the day of surgery; endometritis (...) , defined as fever with abdominal or uterine tenderness and initiation of intravenous antibiotics; and wound separation, defined as disruption of the abdominal incision that required wound care. We calculated overall rates of postpartum infectious morbidity, relative risks (RR), and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the effect of vaginal preparation. As designed and reported, the trial had at least 80% power to detect a 10% or greater absolute difference in rates of overall infectious morbidity, fever

Consenting patients were randomized to receive antibiotics (ampicillin or penicillin with gentamicin) and acetaminophen with or without amnioinfusion. All patients received intrauterine pressure catheter placement. For study patients, normal saline at room temperature was infused at 10 mL/min for 60 min, then 3 mL/min until delivery. Postpartum endometritis was defined as a temperature = 100.4 degrees F accompanied by uterine tenderness (...) randomization to delivery, cesarean section rate, or umbilical cord arterial pH. The mean temperature at the time of delivery was 99.8+/-0.9 degrees F for the amnioinfusion group versus 100.5+/-1.0 degrees F for the control group (p=0.046). Three of 17 amnioinfusion patients and 3 of 17 control patients had postpartum endometritis. There was 1 neonatal infection in the treatment group and no neonatal infections among the control patients. Prophylactic amnioinfusion was associated with a decline
