ABSTRACT: With the increasing numbers of caesareans, long-term complications, such as anterior placenta praevia-accreta are becoming important. Two case reports are presented here, leading to a hypothesis that the increasing incidence of anterior placenta praevia after prior caesareans may be a result of excessive diff erential development of the lower uterine segment. This could result from marked stretching of a poorly-healed myometrial area by the developing placenta. This would explain the lower incidence of ‘ apparent ’ migration of low placenta, as well as the higher likelihood of morbid adhesion. Although different operative techniques do not have a signifi cant eff ect on short-term outcomes of caesareans, they are likely to impact the long-term complications. In the absence of long-term studies and good quality evidence, theoretical and logical analysis suggests that adherence to good surgical techniques, such as gentle tissue handling, haemostasis, good myometrial approximation without compromising blood supply and restoration of normal anatomy, may reduce long-term complications.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 11/2013; 33:806-809.

ABSTRACT: The incidence of repeat termination of pregnancies (TOP) has been increasing in the past decade in-spite-of widespread availability of free and effective contraceptive methods. A retrospective analysis of case notes of women referred for TOP in the Family Planning clinic at Luton, between January and October 2005 was carried out. A total of 159 women were referred for TOP. Of these, 42 (26.4%) were repeat procedures. In this subgroup, 78.5% had used one or more contraceptive methods after the first termination. However, only 61.9% of them continued to use contraception at the time of presentation for a repeat TOP, the most common method being the male condom. Half of the total women seen for a repeat TOP were under 6-weeks' gestation and 14.2% had been treated for sexually transmitted infections in the past. The incidence of repeat TOPs is increasing in the UK. Many studies have shown that the periabortion contraceptive practices are generally poor. In our study, women undergoing repeat termination of pregnancies were either not using contraception or using a method with a high failure rate. We also found the highest number of repeat TOPs occurring in the 20 - 25 age group. Effective contraceptive counselling is vital to combat this worrying trend. Routine 2-week follow-up appointments after TOP and regular auditing of the periabortion contraceptive practices are needed.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 12/2007; 27(8):832-4.

ABSTRACT: This questionnaire survey was performed to explore the attitudes of 295 obstetricians and midwives in a teaching and a district general hospital, towards the maternity directorate guidelines, and to document the possible barriers that may hinder their adherence and suggestions for improvement. The response rate was 61%. There was a tendency in both hospitals to agree that guidelines help learning and improve the quality of care, but make practice defensive, stop innovation, narrow the clinical freedom and do not reduce cost. A significantly higher number in the district hospital valued the guidelines as an aid to use the most up-to-date knowledge. Interestingly, about half of the staff in both hospitals were neutral regarding the role guidelines play in increasing professional satisfaction. The major barrier for lack of adherence was the belief that the individual guidelines were not comprehensive enough to cover daily practice. The trend of the responses was similar in both hospitals with the exception of three areas, where there were significant differences; pressure of time in the teaching hospital, and senior disagreement and lack of resources in the district hospital. Using bullet points for clarity within guidelines, shortening the guidelines, announcing new editions in directorate meetings, and frequent updating were the most common suggestions for improvement. The variations in staff response between the two hospitals highlight the importance of tailoring guidelines to match the working environment and the staff views rather than rigidly dictating practice.Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 12/2007; 27(8):774-80.
