labor (term and preterm), and the presence or absence of IAI.This cross-sectional study included patients in the following groups: (1) mid trimester (n = 65 patients); (2) term not in labor (n = 22 patients); (3) term in labor (n = 47 patients); (4) spontaneous PTL who delivered at term (n = 92 patients); (5) PTL without IAI who delivered preterm (n = 76 patients); (6) PTL with IAI (n = 81 patients); (7) preterm prelabor rupture of the membranes (PPROM) with IAI (n = 48 patients); and (8) PPROM (...) Total hemoglobin concentration in amniotic fluid is increased in intraamniotic infection/inflammation. Discolored amniotic fluid (AF) has been associated with intraamniotic infection/inflammation (IAI) in patients with preterm labor (PTL). The presence of hemoglobin and its catabolic products has been implicated as a cause for AF discoloration. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is an association between total hemoglobin concentration in AF and gestational age, spontaneous

(blood types B and AB). Univariate, bivariate, and logistic regression analyses were done to examine risk factors for chorioamnionitis while controlling for confounders.The study included 2879 subjects, 96 of whom (3.3%) were diagnosed with chorioamnionitis. Chorioamnionitis increased significantly with alcohol use (adjusted odds ratio [AOR] = 4.7), prolonged rupture of membranes (ROM) (AOR = 4.16), anemia (AOR = 2.17), and group 1 status (AOR = 1.88). Advanced maternal age was protective (...) ABO phenotype and other risk factors associated with chorioamnionitis. To examine risk factors associated with chorioamnionitis.We conducted a retrospective cohort study using data on women who delivered prematurely (< 37 weeks of gestation) over a 12-year period. Eleven potential risk factors were identified. Subjects were stratified according to their blood type into 2 groups: group 1, subjects with anti-B antibodies (blood types A and O), and group 2, subjects without anti-B antibodies

2667. Pregnancy after radical trachelectomy: a real option? (Abstract)

who tried to conceive after radical trachelectomy succeeded once or more than once (70%). 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

and three elective abortions. During 39 of the 49 completed pregnancies, complications were observed. The most important cardiac complication was clinically significant arrhythmia (n=11, 22%), especially occurring in patients with a prior history of arrhythmia. Important general pregnancy complications were preeclampsia (n=5, 10.2%) and pregnancy-induced hypertension (n=4, 8.2%). Obstetric complications included premature rupture of membranes (n=7, 14.3%), premature labour (n=12, 24.4%), premature

) of the conization group and in 6.6% (n = 1961) of the controls (OR = 4.07 [2.22-7.10], P < 0.001). 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.

2673. Could a cervical occlusion suture be effective at improving perinatal outcome? (Abstract)

, which can lead to chorioamnionitis and rupture of the amniotic membranes. In this review, we examine the background of traditional cervical cerclage and introduce the concept of the occlusion suture and its potential benefit in reducing the risk of recurrent preterm prelabour rupture of membranes. (...) Could a cervical occlusion suture be effective at improving perinatal outcome? Cervical weakness and infection have long been regarded as major causes of preterm birth. Cervical cerclage has been used extensively to reduce the risk of preterm birth arising as a result of cervical weakness, but increasing evidence suggests that the cervix plays more than just a mechanical role. Immunological function of the cervix and mucus plug is thought to be important in minimising the ingress of microbes

2676. Recent findings on laser treatment of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. (Abstract)

Recent findings on laser treatment of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. Despite the recent demonstration of the benefit of the primary laser over amnioreduction, overall survival is far from optimal (70-80%), and therefore diagnosis and management of early and late complications following placental surgery became of great importance.Laser therapy has proven to be better than amnioreduction in treating twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. Miscarriage, preterm premature rupture of the membranes (...) and preterm delivery account for more than 20% of perinatal mortality after treatment. In those who die despite treatment, recurrence of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, placental insufficiency or feto-fetal hemorrhage with anemia/polycythemia are complications that have to be managed with different secondary therapeutic options, such as amnioreduction, cord coagulation, intrauterine transfusion or repeat fetoscopy-guided laser. Ex-vivo placental angiography has confirmed that these complications occur

2677. Increased risk in the elderly parturient. (Abstract)

, multiple gestation, prelabour rupture of membranes, and preterm labour. Intrapartum complications of malpresentation, fetopelvic disproportion, abnormal labour, increased use of oxytocin in labour, caesarean section, instrumental delivery, sphincter rupture, and postpartum haemorrhage are more frequent in older women. Advanced maternal age is associated with a higher risk of stillbirth throughout gestation, and the peak risk period is 37-41 weeks. Perinatal outcomes differ with maternal age concerning (...) gestational age, birth weight, prematurity, low birth weight, incidence of small-for-gestational-age infants, fetal distress, and perinatal morbidity and mortality. The increased risk cannot be explained only by intercurrent illness or pregnancy complications.Increasing maternal age is independently associated with specific adverse outcomes. Increasing age is a continuum rather than threshold effect. More information about obstetric consequences of delayed childbearing is needed both for obstetricians
