121. Prophylactic antibiotics for manual removal of retained placenta in vaginal birth. (Abstract)

Prophylactic antibiotics for manual removal of retained placenta in vaginal birth. Retained placenta is a potentially life-threatening condition because of its association with postpartum hemorrhage. Manual removal of placenta increases the likelihood of bacterial contamination in the uterine cavity.To compare the effectiveness and side-effects of routine antibiotic use for manual removal of placenta in vaginal birth in women who received antibiotic prophylaxis and those who did (...) not and to identify the appropriate regimen of antibiotic prophylaxis for this procedure.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (31 July 2014).All randomized controlled trials comparing antibiotic prophylaxis and placebo or non antibiotic use to prevent endometritis after manual removal of placenta in vaginal birth.There are no included trials. In future updates, if we identify eligible trials, two review authors will independently assess trial quality and extract dataNo studies

) and postpartum endometritis (RR 0.50, 95% CI 0.18 to 1.38). However, there was a significant decrease in the risk of chorioamnionitis (RR 0.36, 95% CI 0.21 to 0.62). No serious adverse effects were reported. Drug resistance, duration of mechanical ventilation and duration of admission to NICU/hospital were not reported. Most of the domains for risk of bias were at low risk of bias for one study and at unclear risk of bias for the other study. The quality of the evidence using GRADE was low for neonatal (...) sepsis, postpartum endometritis, and neonatal mortality and morbidity prior to discharge (Neonatal intensive care admissions) and of moderate quality for chorioamnionitis.Current evidence indicates that compared to placebo, antibiotics for MSAF in labour may reduce chorioamnionitis. There was no evidence that antibiotics could reduce postpartum endometritis, neonatal sepsis and NICU admission. This systematic review identifies the need for more well-designed, adequately powered RCTs to assess

Removal of high bias studies reveals a significant reduction of induction to delivery interval (MD -1.94 hours, 95% CI -0.99 to -2.89 hours, 489 women). A significant increase in hyperstimulation without specifying fetal heart rate changes was found in the high-dose group (RR 1.86, 95% CI 1.55 to 2.25).No other secondary outcomes

Future research on antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal delivery is needed to conclude whether it is useful for reducing postpartum morbidity. (...) Antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal delivery. Vacuum and forceps assisted vaginal deliveries are reported to increase the incidence of postpartum infections and maternal readmission to hospital compared to spontaneous vaginal delivery. Prophylactic antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent these infections.

No significant differences were found in rates of neonatal death and postpartum endometritis when use of antibiotics was compared with no treatment.

In the majority of women with gonorrhoea, the lack of discernible symptoms results in unrecognized and untreated infections. Untreated infections usually resolve spontaneously but may lead to serious complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, including endometritis, salpingitis and tubo-ovarian abscess, which can lead to ectopic pregnancy and infertility.

Antibiotic prophylaxis in ragged placental membranes: a prospective, multicentre, randomized trial. Ragged placental membranes is a distinct entity from retained placenta and not uncommonly reported in midwifery texts.

Geographically-remote centres in Malaysia prophylactically (...) to participate in the trial and randomized into prophylaxis or expectant management with medical advice by blocks of 10, at a 1:1 ratio. A medication adherence diary was provided and patients followed up at 2 weeks and 6 weeks postpartum.A total of 6569 women gave birth vaginally in three centres during the trial period, of which 10.9% had ragged membranes. The incidence of endometritis was not significantly raised in women with or without prophylaxis (0.90% vs 0.29%; p = 0.60). All cases of endometritis

One systematic review examined the effectiveness of chlorhexidine vaginal douching during labour on maternal and neonatal outcomes. 5 This review included three RCTs for a total of 3012 pregnant women.

With regards to neonatal outcomes, no significant (...) the chlorhexidine and placebo groups (RR 1.10, 95% CI 0.86-1.42). Data from these three trials suggested a small reduction in the risk of postpartum endometritis in the chlorhexidine group, but the difference was not statistically significant (RR 0.83, 95% CI 0.61-1.13). One trial (n=910) found no significant difference in the incidence of neonatal pneumonia between the two groups (RR 0.33, 95% CI 0.01-8.09).
