1. Influence of Caesarean section-pregnancy interval on uterine rupture risk and IVF pregnancy rates: systematic review and mathematical modelling. (Abstract)

Influence of Caesarean section-pregnancy interval on uterine rupture risk and IVF pregnancy rates: systematic review and mathematical modelling. What is the influence of the Caesarean section-pregnancy interval (CSPI) on the risk of uterine rupture, and what are the repercussions on IVF pregnancy rates of prolonging it?Systematic searches were performed using PubMed MEDLINE to identify studies published up until July 2017 for articles with the following keywords: 'interdelivery interval (...) ' and 'uterine rupture'; 'interpregnancy interval' and 'uterine rupture'; 'interpregnancy interval' and 'cesarean section'; and 'uterine rupture' and 'cesarean section'. The search identified 1609 articles, of which six were included (involving 56,419 women). Four reported significantly higher uterine rupture rates in cases of a short CSPI.From the analysis, the uterine rupture rate can be modelled by a formula corresponding to a hyperbolic curve. There is no clear cut-off in uterine rupture in relation

2. Classical Cesarean: What Are the Maternal and Infant Risks Compared With Low Transverse Cesarean in Preterm Birth, and Subsequent Uterine Rupture? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. (Abstract)

Classical Cesarean: What Are the Maternal and Infant Risks Compared With Low Transverse Cesarean in Preterm Birth, and Subsequent Uterine Rupture? A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Classical cesarean section may be associated with increased short- and long-term risks. The objectives of this study were to review the following systematically: first, the short-term maternal and infant risks with preterm classical compared with low transverse cesarean sections; and second, the risk (...) unit (ICU) admission. For subsequent pregnancies, our primary outcome was the risk of spontaneous or early-labour uterine rupture. The data were synthesized using random effects, and odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were generated. There were no significant differences between preterm classical and low transverse cesarean sections in the odds of maternal death (OR 2.38; 95% CI 0.15-38.07) or ICU admission (adjusted OR 2.38; 95% CI 0.42-13.35).

Sonographic lower uterine segment thickness after prior cesarean section to predict uterine rupture: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Cesarean section rates are increasing with a decrease in the rate of trial of labor after cesarean section. The objective of this study was to systematically review the predictive characteristics of sonographic measurement of lower uterine segment thickness for uterine rupture during labor.The review was carried out in agreement with PRISMA and SEDATE (...) lower uterine segment measurement and uterine dehiscence and uterine rupture was shown in 27 and four studies, respectively. Nineteen studies were included in a meta-analysis with a subgroup analysis by ultrasound methodology. In the subgroup using the ultrasound methodology associated with uterine rupture, the cut-off value is more precise (2.0-3.65 mm) among these 12 studies. There were 18 cases (1.0%) of uterine rupture, 120 (6.6%) of uterine dehiscence and 1674 (92.4%) women with no uterine

8. Tocogram characteristics of uterine rupture: a systematic review. (Full text)

Tocogram characteristics of uterine rupture: a systematic review. Timely diagnosing a uterine rupture is challenging. Based on the pathophysiology of complete uterine wall separation, changes in uterine activity are expected. The primary objective is to identify tocogram characteristics associated with uterine rupture during trial of labor after cesarean section. The secondary objective is to compare the external tocodynamometer with intrauterine pressure catheters.MEDLINE, EMBASE (...) , and the Cochrane library were systematically searched for eligible records. Moreover, clinical guidelines were screened. Studies analyzing tocogram characteristics of uterine rupture during trial of labor after cesarean section were appraised and included by two independent reviewers. Due to heterogeneity, a meta-analysis was only feasible for uterine hyperstimulation.Thirteen studies were included. Three tocogram characteristics were associated with uterine rupture.

10. Sonographic diagnosis of spontaneous uterine rupture at the site of cornual wedge resection scar – a case report (Full text)

Sonographic diagnosis of spontaneous uterine rupture at the site of cornual wedge resection scar – a case report Introduction: Uterine rupture and uterine dehiscence during pregnancy are known complications of a scarred uterus. Spontaneous uterine rupture at the site of prior cornual wedge resection has been previously reported in the literature, however remains rare. Discussion: We present a case of uterine rupture at 30 weeks gestation. This woman had previous right sided interstitial (...) pregnancy treated with uncomplicated laparoscopic cornual wedge resection at eight weeks gestation. The index pregnancy occurred eight months after surgery. An emergency ultrasound prompted by non-specific abdominal pain and tenderness at 30 weeks gestation enabled diagnosis of uterine dehiscence. At emergency caesarean section four hours later full thickness wall rupture and haemoperitoneum were found. Surgical intervention resulted in a good outcome for both mother and baby. Conclusion: A brief

11. Sonographic measurement of lower uterine segment thickness to predict uterine rupture during a trial of labor in women with previous Cesarean section: a meta-analysis. (Full text)

Sonographic measurement of lower uterine segment thickness to predict uterine rupture during a trial of labor in women with previous Cesarean section: a meta-analysis. To evaluate the accuracy of antenatal sonographic measurement of lower uterine segment (LUS) thickness in the prediction of risk of uterine rupture during a trial of labor (TOL) in women with a previous Cesarean section (CS).PubMed and EMBASE were searched to identify articles published on the subject of sonographic LUS (...) of included studies was good, although comparison was difficult because of heterogeneity. The estimated sROC curves showed that measurement of LUS thickness seems promising in the prediction of occurrence of uterine defects (dehiscence and rupture) in the uterine wall. The pooled sensitivity and specificity of myometrial LUS thickness for cut-offs between 0.6 and 2.0 mm was 0.76 (95% CI, 0.60-0.87) and 0.92 (95% CI, 0.82-0.97); cut-offs between 2.1 and 4.0 mm reached a sensitivity and specificity of 0.94

12. Risk of uterine rupture in women undergoing trial of labour with a history of both a caesarean section and a vaginal delivery. (Full text)

Risk of uterine rupture in women undergoing trial of labour with a history of both a caesarean section and a vaginal delivery. To determine the risk of uterine rupture for women undergoing trial of labour (TOL) with both a prior caesarean section (CS) and a vaginal delivery.A systematic literature search was performed using keywords for CS and uterine rupture. The results were critically appraised and the data from relevant and valid articles were extracted. Odds ratios were calculated (...) and a pooled estimate was determined using the Mantel-Haenszel method.Five studies were used for final analysis. Three studies showed a significant risk reduction for women with both a previous CS and a prior vaginal delivery (PVD) compared to women with a previous CS only, and two studies showed a trend towards risk reduction. The absolute risk of uterine rupture with a prior vaginal delivery varied from 0.17 to 0.46%. The overall odds ratio for PVD was 0.39 (95% CI 0.29-0.52, P < 0.00001).Women

13. Single- versus double-layer closure of the hysterotomy incision during cesarean delivery and risk of uterine rupture. (Abstract)

Single- versus double-layer closure of the hysterotomy incision during cesarean delivery and risk of uterine rupture. To evaluate the best available evidence regarding the association between single-layer closure and uterine rupture.The PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases were searched for relevant observational and experimental studies that included women with a previous single, low, transverse cesarean delivery who had attempted a trial of labor (TOL (...) ). The risks of uterine rupture and uterine dehiscence were assessed by pooled odds ratios (OR) calculated with a random effects model.Nine studies including 5810 women were reviewed. Overall, the risk of uterine rupture during TOL after a single-layer closure was not significantly different from that after a double-layer closure (OR 1.71; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.66-4.44). However, a sensitivity analysis indicated that the risk of uterine rupture was increased after a locked single-layer closure
