61. Cervical Cerclage

developers also address the placement of a second suture in addition to the primary cerclage, with both agreeing that no benefit of this approach has been demonstrated. With regard to the use of perioperative antibiotics and/or tocolytics, there is consensus among the guideline developers that there is no evidence to support their routine use. Cerclage Removal The guideline developers agree that a transvaginal cerclage is removed electively before labor, typically between 36 and 38 weeks gestation (ACOG (...) specifies 36–37 weeks; SOGC 36–38 weeks). For women undergoing elective cesarean section at or beyond 39 weeks of gestation, ACOG states that removal can be delayed until this time. The developer cautions, however, that the possibility of spontaneous labor between 37 and 39 weeks of gestation must be considered. ACOG also notes that if there is cervical change, painful contractions or progression of vaginal bleeding in women presenting with symptoms of preterm labor, cerclage removal is recommended

with OBPP have no known risk factors. Shoulder dystocia increases the risk for OBPP 100-fold. The reported incidence of OBPP after shoulder dystocia varies widely from 4% to 40%. Other risk factors include birth weight >4 kg, maternal diabetes mellitus, obesity or excessive weight gain, prolonged pregnancy, prolonged second stage of labor, persistent fetal malposition, operative delivery, and breech extraction of a small baby. OBPP after caesarean section accounts for 1% to 4% of cases. Historically (...) are not associated with shoulder dystocia. Possible mechanisms of intrauterine injury include the endogenous propulsive forces of labor, intrauterine maladaptation, or failure of the shoulders to rotate, and impaction of the posterior shoulder behind the sacral promontory. Uterine anomalies, such as fibroids, an intrauterine septum, or a bicornuate uterus may also result in OBPP. It is not possible to reliably predict which fetuses will experience OBPP. Future research should be directed in prospective

The use of specific population-based models to predict VBAC success needs further data, 101,102 although initial results are promising.

. This practice is not recommended. To prevent vasospasm, there should be minimal handling of loops of cord lying outside the vagina. T o prevent cord compression, it is recommended that the presenting part be elevated either manually or by filling the urinary bladder. Cord compression can be further reduced by the mother adopting the knee–chest or left lateral (preferably with head down and pillow under the left hip) position. T ocolysis can be considered while preparing for caesarean section (...) if there are persistent fetal heart rate abnormalities after attempts to prevent compression mechanically, particularly when birth is likely to be delayed. Although the measures described above are potentially useful during preparation for birth, they must not result in unnecessary delay. What is the optimal mode of birth with cord prolapse? Caesarean section is the recommended mode of delivery in cases of cord prolapse when vaginal birth is not imminent in order to prevent hypoxic acidosis. A category 1 caesarean
