2621. Risk factors for periventricular leukomalacia. (Abstract)

type I (RDS I), seizures, sepsis, required more days of both mechanical ventilation and oxygen administration, while the duration of their hospitalization was longer compared to controls. Also, they were born more frequently to mothers who suffered from preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and clinical chorioamnionitis. We found that male gender, PPROM, preeclampsia, hypocarbia and IVH were independently associated with PVL.This study revealed that preterm neonates born to mothers

2623. Is there value for serial ultrasonographic assessment of cervical lengths after a cerclage? (Abstract)

patients (56%) had absent CLA at 26.7 +/- 4.4 weeks. Of these, 16 (50%) were delivered for preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and chorioamnionitis (sensitivity of 100%, specificity of 61%, positive predictive value of 50%, and negative predictive value of 100%).Although the overall cervical length by serial TVS after cerclage did not predict preterm birth, absent CLA is associated with preterm delivery, chorioamnionitis, and PPROM. (...) Is there value for serial ultrasonographic assessment of cervical lengths after a cerclage? The objective of the study was to determine the value of serial ultrasonographic cervical length (CL) measurements after cerclage to predict preterm delivery.Retrospective ultrasonographic and outcome data from singleton pregnancies with cerclage were reviewed. Using transvaginal ultrasound (TVS), overall CL obtained before cerclage placement, 2 weeks after cerclage, and before delivery were compared

Univariate and multivariate analyses of risk factors for MTCT were performed for deliveries in the periods up to 1996.Overall, 2.1% (192/9262) of all the deliveries were twins. The rate of prematurity was greater in twins than in singletons (54% and 13%, respectively). Up to 1996 the rate of MTCT of HIV-1 was 28.3% (15/53) in twin pregnancies, versus 13.5% (414/3077) in singletons [odds ratio (OR), 2.5; 95% confidence interval (CI

Patients attempting to conceive need to be informed of the complications and risk factors, in particular, second trimester loss and premature delivery caused by premature rupture of membranes. Once pregnant, patients need to be carefully followed for cervical incompetence and other risk factors for premature rupture of membranes. (...) % of the patients who tried to conceive, cervical stenosis was found and resulted in menstrual disorders or fertility problems. Surgical dilatation resolved this problem in most cases but had to be repeated. Complications during pregnancy involved second trimester loss (13/161) and premature (< or =36 weeks AD) delivery (33/161).Pregnancy after radical trachelectomy is feasible. For various reasons, a number of patients (57%) did not try to get pregnant after the surgical procedure. The majority of the patients

Preterm premature rupture of the membranes was found in 17.1% (n = 13) of the conization group and in 2.6% (n = 775) of the controls (OR = 7.70 [3.87-14.21], P < 0.001). Birth weight less than 2500 g was found in 18.4% (n = 14) of the conization group and in 7.7% (n = 2280) of the controls (OR = 2.72 [1.40-4.92], P = 0.002). Overall, birth weight in the conization group was not significantly lower (median 3147 g (...) vs. 3287 g, P = 0.115). Cervical tears were found more frequently in the conization group (8.8% [n = 6] vs. 1.3% [n = 236], OR = 7.53 [2.63-17.57], P < 0.001). There was no difference in mode of delivery, duration of labor, head circumference, chorioamnionitis and use of oxytocin.Cold-knife conization is a risk factor for preterm birth and preterm premature rupture of the membranes and seems to be a risk factor for cervical tears.

European Community Collaborative Study Group on Prenatal Screening. Preterm delivery is strongly associated with neonatal mortality and morbidity.

Prevention of early-onset neonatal group B streptococcal disease with selective intrapartum chemoprophylaxis. Most cases of neonatal group B streptococcal disease with early onset have an intrapartum pathogenesis. Attack rates are increased substantially in infants born to mothers with prenatal group B streptococcal colonization and various perinatal risk factors (premature labor, prolonged membrane rupture, or intrapartum fever). In a randomized controlled trial, we studied the effect

Eight of 11 fetuses (73 percent) in the tracheal-occlusion group and 10 of 13 (77 percent) in the group that received standard care survived to 90 days of age (P=1.00). The severity of the congenital diaphragmatic hernia at randomization, as measured by the lung-to-head ratio, was inversely related to survival in both groups. Premature rupture of the membranes (...) and preterm delivery were more common in the group receiving the intervention than in the group receiving standard care (mean [+/-SD] gestational age at delivery, 30.8+/-2.0 weeks vs. 37.0+/-1.5 weeks; P<0.001).

of life.The prevalence of early onset group B streptococcal sepsis was 0.57 per 1000 live births. Premature infants comprised 38% of all cases and 83% of the deaths. Prematurity (odds ratio 10.4, 95% confidence interval 3.9 to 27.6), rupture of the membranes more than 18 hours before delivery (25.8, 10.2 to 64.8), rupture of the membranes before the onset of labour (11.1, 4.8 to 25.9), and intrapartum fever (10.0, 2.4 to 40.8) were significant risk factors for infection. Had the interim recommendations (...) in the United Kingdom. Prevention based on risk factors might reduce the prevalence at the cost of treating many women with risk factors. Using rupture of the membranes before the onset of labour as a risk factor might be expected to improve the success of guidelines for prophylaxis.

Risk factors for the development of meningitis include low birth weight (below 2500 g), premature delivery, premature rupture of membranes, traumatic delivery, fetal hypoxia and maternal peripartum infection.

Initial 'blind' therapy Children 3 months and older and young people should be given intravenous ceftriaxone as empirical treatment before identification of the causative organism. If calcium-containing infusions are required at the same time, cefotaxime is preferable. Children younger than 3 months should be given intravenous cefotaxime plus either amoxicillin or ampicillin. NB : ceftriaxone should not be used in premature babies

by caesarean section for twin 2. Triplets and higher multiple deliveries are usually managed by caesarean section and in tertiary-level fetal medicine centres. Vaginal delivery of twins With no complicating factors, the mother can go into spontaneous labour provided the first twin has a cephalic presentation. Where the first twin presents in a breech or transverse position, caesarean section is preferred. In most cases, vaginal birth proceeds as normal. With rupture of membranes, check for prolapse (...) . Ideally these should all be performed at the same scan. Chorionicity should be determined using the number of placental masses, the lambda or T-sign and membrane thickness. The risks are greater if the fetuses share a placenta (monochorionic), so it is important that this is established early. Scanning to screen for structural anomalies takes place as per singleton pregnancies (at 18 to 21 weeks), but the procedure takes longer. Multiple pregnancies should be monitored carefully for intrauterine

If there is a problem in the ear canal or the middle ear, this causes what is known as a conductive hearing loss. In conductive hearing loss, the movement of sound (conduction) is blocked or does not pass into the inner ear. This is often as the result of earwax (cerumen) or fluid in the middle ear, although it may also be caused by a burst (ruptured) eardrum or by otosclerosis (see below).
