The natural history of women with a short cervix and a low-risk obstetric history remains poorly defined. In our study, we sought to better characterize the impact of previous obstetric history on the delivery outcomes in women diagnosed with a mid-trimester sonographic short cervix.

To evaluate whether a history of spontaneous early-term birth (37 -38 weeks of gestation) in the previous singleton pregnancy is a risk factor for preterm birth (PTB) in a subsequent twin pregnancy.
Background Spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB) has a detrimental impact on perinatal outcome, as well as on the resources of health systems in high-income countries. Thus, the objective of the current st...
Spontaneous Preterm birth (SPTB) is a common obstetric complication affecting 12.9 million births worldwide and is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. Disruption in the vaginal micr...
Mid-trimester uterine artery resistance measured with Doppler sonography is predictive for iatrogenic preterm birth. In view of the emerging association between hypertensive disease in pregnancy and s...
Spontaneous preterm birth is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide and continues to present a major clinical dilemma. We previously reported that a number of protein species...
Prevention of preterm birth (PTB) is a key factor for a positive short-term and long-term outcome of the newborn children as mortality and morbidity are inversely related to gestational ag...
As part of the continuing effort to study the benefit and risks of 17P and preterm delivery, this study is designed as a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical...
Prematurity is the most important cause of obstetric morbidity and mortality. Health centers and obstetricians are trying to reduce the preterm birth rate by taking into account the perman...
The prediction of preterm birth is beneficial because it initiates early treatment to minimize risk. It defines a population at risk to provide particular treatment and may lead us to a be...
CRAFT-OBS: Observational Study; To evaluate subsequent pregnancy risk of preterm birth in women with a history of previous caesarean in established labour. This prospective study using cli...
Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.
Spontaneous tearing of the membranes surrounding the FETUS any time before the onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR. Preterm PROM is membrane rupture before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
