Acute pseudo-obstruction of the colon - also known as Ogilvie's syndrome - is a rare clinical presentation in obstetrics. The syndrome is seen more often following caesarean section than vaginal delivery.
Intravenous neostigmine is a well-established treatment for acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (ACPO). Its use is hampered by the perceived requirement for continuous cardiac monitoring, and patients are often transferred to high-dependency units for close observation during treatment. Subcutaneous neostigmine has the potential to minimize adverse cardiovascular effects while maintaining efficacy. This study aims to assess the safety of subcutaneous neostigmine on ward inpatients with ACPO monitored with stan...
As long as I have worked in obstetrics, we have been using the caesarean section rate as a measure of the quality of maternity care. Reducing the rate of unnecessary intervention has always been the raison d'etre of the accoucheur, and as a profession, we have been fighting a losing battle to try to reduce the number of caesarean sections. The caesarean section rates have resulted in numerous audits, discussions and many ideas about how the rate can be reduced. The caesarean section rate is featured in the ...
Caesarean section rates are increasing worldwide, and since the 2000s, several researchers have investigated women's demand for caesarean sections.
Caesarean section is increasing in prevalence and with it the proportion of women going into their next pregnancy with a scar on their uterus. For women considering vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC), accurate information about the associated risks is required.
The timing of repeat caesarean section after previous multiple caesarean sections has long been a balance ('the art of obstetrics') between the notion of maternal morbidity from anecdotal instances of antenatal scar rupture, maternal haemorrhage related to abnormal placentation, the onset of preterm labour requiring emergency caesarean section with its associated increased morbidity from maternal haemorrhage and infection and neonatal morbidity, which may be immediate and predominantly respiratory in nature...
Women with Bipolar Disorder (BD) during pregnancy present a negative impact on them and their babies' health. Caesarean Section (C-Section) is an intervention to reduce complications associated with childbirth, but it also has risks, including maternal infections, anaesthetic and psychological complications. There are few studies that analyse the C-Section rates in women with BD compared to the general population.
To investigate the association between caesarean section (CS) birth and body fat percentage (BF%), body mass index (BMI) and being overweight or obese in early childhood.
During caesarean section, the use of a vasopressor is often required to achieve haemodynamic stability of the parturient. Metaraminol is a vasopressor used in this context in some countries. However, the differences between metaraminol and other vasopressors remain unclear.
In this study all women undergoing caesarean section were included regardless of the indication. After the foetus and placenta were delivered, the uterus was examined for the presence or absence of congenital malformation through digital palpation of uterine cavity and direct inspection of the fundus. Of the 653 caesarean sections included, uterine anomalies were diagnosed in 31 women (4.75%). Most of the anomalies were septate and sub-septate uterus (71%) followed by bicornuate uterus (19.4%), while the fr...
Studies in women with epilepsy (WWE) regarding pregnancy and labour-complications have disclosed contradictory results. Our purpose was to investigate whether WWE have a higher risk of acute caesarean section (CS) or pregnancy complications than women without epilepsy or women with other chronic diseases, and if we found a higher risk, explore potential explanations.
BACKGROUND Acute colonic pseudo-obstruction (ACPO) is an infrequent entity characterized by non-toxic, non-mechanical, abrupt, functional dilation of the colon. Clinically patients present with abdominal distention, anxiety, severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. This rare entity can lead to a fatal outcome if not recognized early. A high level of suspicions is paramount for early diagnosis and prompt intervention. CASE REPORT A 50-year-old male was admitted to the intensive unit care due to acute hyp...
Knowledge about labour characteristics of women achieving successful vaginal birth after caesarean section (VBAC) might be used to improve labour and birth management. This study examined sociodemographic and labour process-related factors regarding a) differences between countries, b) the comparison of successful VBAC with unplanned caesarean section, and c) predictors for the success of planned VBAC in three European countries.
The aim of this study was to examine clinical outcomes and adverse events (AEs) of self-expandable metal stents (SEMSs) in the management of malignant colonic obstruction (MCO).
Caesarean section is a commonly performed major obstetric surgery to deliver baby under certain indications which may be maternal or fetal. If performed timely, it is helpful to save the life of mother and fetus and if not, it increases both maternal and fetal risks.
To assess incidence, risk factors, management, and short and long-term outcomes of unintentional transvesical caesarean section (UTV-CS) defined as any extraction of the fetus through a double full thickness bladder wall cystotomy.
In 2011, the company that produced thiopental in France and in the United States stopped its marketing. Because of limited evidences, the choice of the best induction agent for caesarean section remains controversial, especially in emergency. The objective of this study was to compare the effects of propofol versus thiopental on the Apgar score of the newborn.
To determine frequency of maternal hypotension during spinal anaesthesia for elective caesarean section by comparing fixed dose with height and weight-adjusted dose of hyperbaric 0.5% bupivacaine.
In-wound catheters for infusion of local anaesthetic for post-caesarean section analgesia are well tolerated in parturients. Few studies have examined continuous in-wound infusion of a combination of local anaesthetic and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for post-caesarean section analgesia. This single centre study evaluated post-operative analgesic efficacy and piritramide-sparing effects of continuous in-wound infusion of either local anaesthetic or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, or the combi...
Choosing between vaginal delivery and caesarean section in cases of breech presentation is still a matter of controversy. In this article, we present the Lausanne University Hospital's protocol following the introduction of an institutional vaginal breech delivery policy. Vaginal breech delivery is a viable alternative to caesarean section in the presence of an experienced obstetrician and rigorous patient-selection criteria.
To evaluate the role of the TGCS to reduce the caesarean section (CS) rate among nulliparas (Robson groups 1 and 2) and to find out which group of women have reduced the CS rate by using this tool.
The dramatic increase in the utilization of caesarean section has raised concerns on its impact on public expenditure and health. While the financial costs associated with this surgical procedure are well recognized, less is known on the intangible health costs borne by mothers and their families. We contribute to the debate by investigating the effect of unplanned caesarean deliveries on mothers' mental health in the first nine months after the delivery. Differently from previous studies, we account for th...
Despite studies showing superior results in terms of reduced stoma rate and higher primary anastomosis rate, the safety of bridge to surgery stenting (BTS stent) for left-sided malignant colonic obstruction, especially in oncological terms, remains a concern.
There are few prospective studies of outcomes following surgery in rural district hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa. This study aimed to estimate the prevalence and predictors of surgical-site infection (SSI) following caesarean section at Kirehe District Hospital in rural Rwanda.
