A randomized, prospective trial will be offered to women admitted to the labor floors at Mount Sinai Medical Center for labor induction.
The present study is conducted to compare the effect of Oral Propranolol and Oxytocin, versus Oxytocin only on induction of labor in term pregnancy.
The rates of cesarean deliveries (CD) and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) are on the rise, with failed induction and augmentation of labor as major contributing factors. Oxytocin is commonly u...
The objective of the study is to demonstrate whether cooling the uterine smooth muscle during cesarean section (following delivery of the fetus) will promote better uterine contraction and...
This is a study to investigate the safety and efficacy of propranolol in the treatment of patients with primary lymphedema. The primary goal is to assess patient tolerability of increasing...
Propranolol, a β-adrenergic receptor antagonist, is a chiral compound which is marketed as a racemate, but only (S)-(-)-enantiomer is responsible for the β-adrenoceptor blocking activity. Different ...
To describe labor progression patterns with oxytocin for augmentation in women who achieve vaginal delivery; and to determine how long one should wait with effective uterine contraction before labor a...
Infantile hemangiomas (IH) are the most common in the head and neck region. They can occur anywhere in the skin, however, urethral hemangiomas are very rare. We describe a case report of a three years...
Allowing low-risk pregnant women to eat less restrictive diets during labor may not only make them happier, but may shorten labor, too.
Infantile hemangioma (IH) is one of the most common benign vascular tumors of infancy. Propranolol has been recently introduced for the treatment of IH. However, the mechanism of protective effect has...
A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol has been used for MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; ARRHYTHMIA; ANGINA PECTORIS; HYPERTENSION; HYPERTHYROIDISM; MIGRAINE; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; and ANXIETY but adverse effects instigate replacement by newer drugs.
The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
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).
Medical problems associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR, such as BREECH PRESENTATION; PREMATURE OBSTETRIC LABOR; HEMORRHAGE; or others. These complications can affect the well-being of the mother, the FETUS, or both.
Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.
