In pregnant women, bacteriuria with group B streptococci (GBS) may be associated with a high degree of recto-vaginal GBS colonisation and therefore an increased risk of early-onset GBS disease. The aim of this study was to assess the performance of routine use of dipstick urine analysis during pregnancy for prediction of recto-vaginal GBS colonisation at the time of labour.
Recto-vaginal endometriosis surgical management needing partial colpectomy is a surgically challenging condition and has been associated with a notable risk of major postoperative complications. In the present study we sought to compare feasibility and safety of total laparoscopic (TL) and vaginal-assisted (VA) routes in women affected by symptomatic recto-vaginal endometriosis with vaginal mucosa infiltration scheduled for minimally invasive surgery.
Urine dipstick tests are often used to evaluate proteinuria during health checkups. We examined the dipstick's accuracy in assessing the proteinuria levels among Japanese workers.
We have recently introduced intrapartum PCR-testing for group B streptococcus (GBS) in women in labor with prolonged rupture of membranes or preterm delivery to offer intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis only for GBS positive women.The goal of the present study is to report our experience and results from the first half year of GBS testing.
A third of developed countries do not test for maternal group B streptococcus colonisation in pregnant women and follow a strategy of identifying maternal risk factors for EOGBS disease in the baby, and offering those 'higher risk groups' intrapartum antimicrobial prophylaxis. Hasperhoven et al (BJOG, 2020) present an updated systematic review of culture-based testing for group B streptococcus (GBS) colonisation in women or risk factor-based approach for prevention of newborn early-onset GBS (EOGBS) disease...
Background Cesarean delivery (CD) in primiparas with a term singleton vertex fetus (PTSV) is a sentinel event for the future mode of delivery and determinant of repeat CD risk. We aimed to evaluate the risk factors for primary CD in a population with a decade of sustained low rate of intrapartum CD. Methods This was a retrospective single-center cohort study between 2005 and 2014. The primary outcome of the study was the mode of delivery. PTSV who attempted vaginal delivery were identified and categorized a...
Pneumococcal colonisation is regarded as a pre-requisite for developing pneumococcal disease. In children previous studies have reported pneumococcal colonisation to be a symptomatic event and described a relationship between symptom severity/frequency and colonisation density. The evidence for this in adults is lacking in the literature. This study uses the experimental human pneumococcal challenge (EHPC) model to explore whether pneumococcal colonisation is a symptomatic event in healthy adults.
A limited number of studies have addressed the role of intrapartum ultrasound in the prediction of the mode of delivery in women with prolonged second stage of labor.
The dipstick urinalysis for proteinuria has been used for chronic kidney disease (CKD) screening at community-based health checkups; however, it has major drawbacks in that the result is only semi-quantitative and is influenced by urine concentration.
When there are structural relationships between outcomes reported in different trials, separate analyses of each outcome do not provide a single coherent analysis, which is required for decision-making. For example, trials of intrapartum anti-bacterial prophylaxis (IAP) to prevent early onset group B streptococcal (EOGBS) disease can report three treatment effects: the effect on bacterial colonisation of the newborn, the effect on EOGBS, and the effect on EOGBS conditional on newborn colonisation. These out...
The present video demonstrates extraperitoneal uterosacral ligament suspension (ULS) while performing vaginal hysterectomy for POP-Q stage 3 prolapse. The ULS bites were taken before severing the uterosacral ligament using the cervix as a traction device. Two ULS sutures were applied on each side to the distal half of the intermediate part. Superior 1st ULS suture with permanent material (polypropylene) was applied to the uppermost exposed area. Inferior 2nd ULS suture with delayed absorbable material (poly...
A hypothesized mechanism for increased type 1 diabetes risk among caesarean births is lack of exposure to the vaginal microbiota. Children born by prelabour caesarean are not exposed to the vaginal microbiota, whereas caesarean births during labour (intrapartum) may be exposed. The aim of this study was to estimate type 1 diabetes risk among children born by caesarean compared with normal vaginal delivery.
Improving quality of intrapartum care will reduce intrapartum stillbirth and neonatal mortality, especially in resource-poor settings. Basic neonatal resuscitation can reduce intrapartum stillbirth and early neonatal mortality, if delivered in a high-quality health system, but there is a dearth of evidence on how to scale up such evidence-based interventions. We evaluated the scaling up of a quality improvement (QI) package for neonatal resuscitation on intrapartum-related mortality (intrapartum stillbirth ...
Urinalysis performed by dipstick testing is an aid to diagnosing urinary tract infections (UTI), and a tool in selecting patients who require urine culture and antibiotic treatment. Previous studies have demonstrated that UTI, especially in the elderly, are over-diagnosed and over-treated. We sought to study the pattern and yield of urinalysis and urine culture at our service in a tertiary institution.
Group B streptococcus is the leading cause of infection in infants. Currently, intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis is the major strategy to prevent invasive group B streptococcus disease. However, intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis does not prevent maternal sepsis, premature births, stillbirths or late-onset disease. Maternal vaccination may offer an alternative strategy. Multivalent polysaccharide protein conjugate vaccine development is under way and a serocorrelate of protection is needed to expedite vacc...
In this narrated video we present a case of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) recurrence 12 years after sacrocervicopexy, outline our management and suggest an optimal laparoscopic surgical technique that may reduce the risk of future recurrence. A 71-year-old patient, who had undergone an open sub-total hysterectomy with sacrocervicopexy 12 years previously, complained of a bulging sensation in her vagina, of 12 months' duration. On physical examination, a Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) stage II...
Women with pelvic organ prolapse describe vaginal laxity and poor sensation of vaginal tone that does not correlate with anatomical findings. This discrepancy could be explained by altered vaginal sensation and a test that could measure sensation of vaginal tone, transmitted via Aα and Aβ nerve fibers, would further our understanding of the pathophysiology of vaginal laxity.
Urogenital schistosomiasis (UGS) remains common in sub-Saharan African migrants. The aim of the study was to describe UGS cases detected among patients attending primary healthcare consultations in free outpatient clinics in Paris. This retrospective cohort study included all cases of active UGS from 2004 to 2017. Cases were defined by the presence of Schistosoma haematobium typical ova at urine microscopy. Primary care physicians prescribed it on the basis of epidemiological or clinical criteria. Demograph...
Early and prompt diagnosis of pyelonephritis is of great importance in children. The aim of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of urinary carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA19-9) levels for predicting acute pyelonephritis (APN) in children with urinary tract infection (UTI). Patients were allocated into two groups of APN and acute cystitis according to their diagnosis. Urine samples of all patients were collected. Also, complete history was taken, and physical examination, kidney and bladder ultras...
Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is a common colonizer of the female genital tract at the time of pregnancy, and has been associated with severe neonatal infections. Despite trials for GBS vaccines already being underway, the factors influencing vaginal GBS colonization and clearance are currently poorly understood.
Currently no established criteria exist to guide use of ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) for fetal neck mass management. This study aims to correlate prenatal radiographic findings with incidence of ex utero intrapartum treatment and necessity of airway intervention at delivery.
Our objective was to assess whether volatile organic compound (VOC) analysis of vaginal swabs can detect maternal Group B Streptococcus (GBS) during pregnancy in a prospective exploratory study. Around 243 women attending a high-risk antenatal clinic at one university teaching hospital in the UK consented to take part and provide vaginal swabs throughout pregnancy. VOC analysis of vaginal swabs was undertaken and compared with the reference standard of GBS detected using enrichment culture method. The chemi...
Vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) is one of the most common infections in women. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of a water-soluble β-glucan salecan to protect against Candida albicans (C. albicans) vaginal infection. The model was reproduced with intravaginal inoculation of yeast blastoconidia in pseudoestrus mice. We found that mice that received salecan (0.5 mg per mouse) after infection had 85% fewer CFU than infected mice given saline. Compared with the C. albicans group, salecan ...
External beam radiotherapy (EBRT) combined with brachytherapy has an essential role in the curative treatment of primary vaginal cancer. EBRT is associated with significant tumour shrinkage, making primary vaginal cancer suitable for image guided adaptive brachytherapy (IGABT). The aim of these recommendations is to introduce an adaptive target volume concept for IGABT of primary vaginal cancer.
Optical coherence tomography is a noninvasive technology that visualizes tissue microstructure with high spatial resolution. We designed a novel vaginal system that demonstrates a clear distinction between vaginal tissues planes. In this study, we sought to compare vaginal tomographic images of premenopausal, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal women, demonstrate feasibility of tracking vaginal tissue changes after treatment with fractional-pixel CO2 laser therapy, and obtain a histologic correlation of thes...
