a Randomized Multicenter Trial Comparing Vacuum Assisted Delivery With the New Device "iCUP" Versus the Reference Cup.

2013-08-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


The hypothesis is that the new vacuum assisted delivery device iCup is more effective than the reference cup, in terms of maternal and newborn morbidities and functioning


Currently, instrumental extractions are used in about 10% to 15% of the 860 000 annual deliveries in France and the use of vacuum extractors increases from year to year. In addition to sterilizable vacuum extractors several different types of vacuum extractor have been developed, in particular the single use Kiwi cup or the so-called 'soft' cup extractors. However, studies evaluating these new cups have not shown their superiority in comparison to the conventional metallic vacuum extractor.

Accordingly, it is legitimate to assess the new vacuum extractor iCup, an innovative "mix" of metallic cup and 'soft' cups that should combine the advantages of both; and to compare the iCup vacuum extractor with the sterilizable metallic cup extractor, the most effective vacuum extractors available to date.

Extraction of the fetus by means of obstetrical instruments.

Removal of the fetus from the uterus or vagina at or near the end of pregnancy with a metal traction cup that is attached to the fetus' head. Negative pressure is applied and traction is made on a chain passed through the suction tube. (From Stedman, 26th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)

Aspiration of the contents of the uterus with a vacuum curette.

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.

The selective extraction of deciduous teeth during the stage of mixed dentition in accordance with the shedding and eruption of the teeth. It is done over an extended period to allow autonomous adjustment to relieve crowding of the dental arches during the eruption of the lateral incisors, canines, and premolars, eventually involving the extraction of the first premolar teeth. (Dorland, 28th ed)
