2521. Maternal and obstetric risk factors for sudden infant death syndrome in the United States. (Abstract)

] 1.24, 2.33), abruptio placentae (OR 1.57; 95% CI 1.24, 1.98), premature rupture of membranes (OR 1.48; 95% CI 1.33, 1.66), or small for gestational age (OR 1.40; 95% CI 1.30, 1.50 for the 10th percentile). SIDS cases were also more likely to be male. Mothers of cases were more likely to be younger, less educated, and nonwhite, and more of them smoked during pregnancy and did not attend prenatal care.This analysis confirms the importance of several well known demographic and lifestyle risk factors

2522. Second-trimester asynchronous multifetal delivery results in poor perinatal outcome. (Abstract)

attempt (tocolysis and/or emergent cerclage placement) to increase latency between delivery of the first fetus and subsequent fetuses.Fourteen cases of asynchronous delivery were identified out of 96922 deliveries including 1352 pregnancies complicated by multifetal gestation. The occurrence rate of asynchronous delivery was 0.14 per 1000 births. The etiology of preterm birth of the first fetus in 12 (86%) of 14 cases was second-trimester rupture of membranes. The mean gestational age for delivery (...) of the first fetus was 21.+/- 2.0 weeks. All women received tocolysis and intravenous antibiotics. Two of 3 attempts at cerclage placement were successful. Median latency obtained was 2 days (range less than 1-70 days). There was 1 survival of a first born. There were 19 retained fetuses, 2 died in utero, 10 died between birth and day 57 of life, and 7 survived (37%; 95% confidence interval 16%, 62%) until hospital discharge. Six of 7 survivors had major sequelae from prematurity. One of 19 fetuses

2523. Surgical management of twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence. (Abstract)

with no incidence of premature rupture of membranes, with 83% perinatal survival, and with a significantly greater gestational age at delivery (36 weeks). There were no significant differences in perinatal outcome relative to the specific surgical technique that was used.Surgical management of twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence is indicated in high-risk patients. The surgical approach and the surgical technique should be tailored to the specific clinical presentation, preferably by performing the surgery (...) who had umbilical cord occlusion was 65% (33/51 patients) versus 42.9% (6/14 patients) for the surgical candidates who did not undergo umbilical cord occlusion (P = .1). However, perinatal outcomes in surgical patients were significantly better than expectantly treated surgical candidates if the dividing membrane was not disrupted purposely (22/28 patients; 78.5%; P = .02). Surgery within the sac of the twin reversed arterial perfusion fetus was feasible in 23.5% of patients and was associated

2524. Pregnancy and infant outcome of 80 consecutive cord coagulations in complicated monochorionic multiple pregnancies. (Abstract)

intrauterine fetal deaths (10%), 5 within 24 hours and 4 between 4 and 10 weeks after the procedure. There was 1 termination of pregnancy because of chorioamnionitis. Median gestational age at delivery was 35.4 weeks, with 79% of patients delivering after 32 weeks. Preterm prelabor rupture of the membranes before 25 weeks accounted for all perinatal deaths (n = 5). Of the children older than 1 year of age (n = 67), 62 (92%) have a normal development.Cord coagulation is an effective method for selective

cases by percutaneous techniques. There were no maternal deaths, but significant short-term morbidity was observed. There were no significant differences in the incidence of premature rupture of membranes, pulmonary edema, placental abruption, postoperative vaginal bleeding, preterm delivery, or interval from maternal-fetal surgery to delivery between endoscopic procedures and open surgery. Complications were significantly less in the percutaneous ultrasound-guided procedures. Endoscopic procedures (...) , even with a laparotomy, showed statistically significantly less morbidity compared with the open hysterotomy group regarding cesarean delivery as delivery mode (94.8% vs 58.8%; P < .001), requirement for intensive care unit stay (1.4% vs 26.4%; P < .001), length of hospital stay (7.9 vs 11.9 days; P = .001), and requirement for blood transfusions (2.9% vs 12.6%; P = .022). Chorion-amnion membrane separation (64.7% vs 20.3%; P < .001) was seen more often in the endoscopy group.Short-term morbidities

2527. Manufacture of a cell-free amnion matrix scaffold that supports amnion cell outgrowth in vitro. (Abstract)

Manufacture of a cell-free amnion matrix scaffold that supports amnion cell outgrowth in vitro. We manufactured a cell-free extracellular matrix scaffolds in order to obtain a support material for amnion cell outgrowth, eventually being used for repair of prematurely ruptured fetal membrane. Human preterm or term amnion tissue was separated into its collagenous extracellular matrix and cell components. The acellular scaffold was explored for its capacity to support regrowth of isolated human (...) found to grow into dense layers on the surface of the scaffold within 3-4 days and 7-8 days, respectively, and to some extent, invaded the scaffold during the culture period. Manufactured acellular amnion matrix retains structural and functional properties required for cell outgrowth in vitro. It may become useful to repair prematurely ruptured fetal membranes.

2531. Sjögren's syndrome diagnosed in pregnancy: a case report. (Abstract)

for renal insufficiency. To prevent autoantibody formation, progression of the disease, therapy with methyl prednisolone, 100 mg/d intravenously; cyclophosphamide, 500 mg/month in a single intravenous application; hemodialysis 3 times a week; and plasmapheresis 7 times was instituted. An 1,100-g, male infant at 27 weeks and 5 days was delivered by cesarean section because of premature preterm rupture of membranes and severe late decelerations on cardiotocography. The infant was discharged from (...) the neonatal intensive care unit after 30 days, weighing 1,800 g. Postnatal echocardiographic examination of the infant revealed neither cardiac malformations nor arrhythmias.Since the presence of autoantibodies against SS-A and SS-B are reported to accompany congenital heart block, the primary goal of therapy should be preventing this untoward effect of the disease. Close monitoring during pregnancy is mandatory to detect preeclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation and preterm labor.
