We assessed how often the urgency of Category 1 caesarean sections was incorrectly recorded by the anaesthetic and theatre teams. Category 1 caesarean sections were identified over a 15-month period (September 2010 to November 2011), from the daily audit of emergency caesarean sections undertaken by the obstetric team. The categories of urgency as...

Prostaglandins (PG) are widely employed to induce cervical remodelling (CR) in pregnancy. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms are not fully elucidated. Tight junctions (TJ) and gap junctions (GJ) regulate paracellular and intercellular solute transport respectively but their role in the process of CR remains unexplored. We hypothesized tha...

Article
The diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma in pregnancy is rare (incidence of 0.018-0.073/1000 pregnancies). Its rarity is reflected by a paucity of cases reported in the literature. The present report concerns a case of advanced serous ovarian carcinoma in a full-term pregnancy. This was an incidental finding discovered during an emergency caesarean secti...
Article
We introduced red-cell salvage to our obstetric unit following a two-month period of training and education. We report a service evaluation of the first six months of activity from May to October 2007. The indications for using cell salvage were: placenta praevia, suspected placental abruption, multiple pregnancy, multiple repeat caesarean, previou...
Article
Following the introduction of haemostatic agents, new opportunities are available when facing problematic bleeding. We report the first case of traumatic postpartum hemorrhage successfully controlled with a fibrin sealant. 26-year nulliparous patient had a rotational forceps delivery and developed multiple vaginal lacerations. Haemostasis could not...
Article
Proteinuria is one of the fundamental criteria for the diagnosis of pre-eclampsia with quantitative assessment based on the 24-hour urine protein estimation as the gold standard. This study was undertaken to determine whether a 2-hour protein estimation correlated with that of a formal 24-hour collection. Thirty women with proteinuric hypertension...
Article
The popularity of the Internet is expanding rapidly and the number of patients accessing health-related web sites before a clinical consultation is increasing every day. Using popular Internet search engines we retrieved 26 health-related web sites containing patient information on hysterectomy. The web sites underwent a general evaluation on the b...
Article
Objective To audit the effect of introducing external cephalic version at 36 weeks on breech delivery rates and modes, and to assess factors that affect external cephalic version success rates. Design A prospective unblinded study over 12 months of factors affecting external cephalic version success. A retrospective review of breech deliveries for...
Article
To evaluate changes in cervical dimensions by transvaginal ultrasound in non-randomly selected pregnant women. This longitudinal study included 154 pregnant women undergoing transvaginal ultrasound assessment of the cervix at a mean gestational age of 12, 16, 20, 25, and 31 weeks. On each occasion, the longitudinal and anteroposterior diameters of...
Article
Fifteen fetuses at risk of congenital human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection underwent prenatal diagnosis at 16-30 weeks' gestation by a combination of amniocentesis and fetal blood sampling. HCMV was isolated from the amniotic fluid in six patients, but HCMV-specific IgM was detected in only three of them. Two of the nine neonates, who were delive...
Article
Amniocentesis and fetal skin biopsies were performed at 18 weeks of gestation in a fetus at risk for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and autosomal recessive junctional epidermolysis bullosa (EBJ) with pyloric atresia. A previous son of the couple under investigation had died at 3 months of EBJ. The mother of the propositus has...
Article
Trisomy 12 mosaicism diagnosed at 16 weeks' amniocentesis in a 42-year-old woman was not confirmed at 18 weeks' gestational age in amniotic fluid or fetal blood. Fetal skin biopsy performed at the same time did, however, allow the detection of trisomy 12 in 1 of 14 fibroblasts analysed. Fetal skin biopsy can be included within the diagnostic proced...
