OBJECTIVE: To synthesize the existing evidence on perinatal outcomes following autologous cryopreserved ovarian tissue transplantation (ACOTT), concurrently identifying key factors influencing these outcomes. DATA SOURCES: We performed a comprehensive search of MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases to identify relevant studies on the impact of ACOTT on perinatal outcomes from inception until October 22, 2023. Where there is missing information, the authors were contacted for updated data...

BACKGROUND: Improved technologies paired with an increase in access to genetic testing has led to the availability of expanded carrier screening evaluating hundreds of disorders. Currently, most autosomal dominant mutations, such as BRCA1, are not included in expanded carrier assays. Screening pregnant or preconception reproductive-aged women for BRCA1 may present a unique opportunity to perform population-based screening for patients at a time where precancer screening, chemoprevention and/or risk reducing surgery may be beneficial...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infection (SSI) is one of the most common complications of gynecologic cancer surgery. Current guidelines recommend the administration of cefazolin pre-operatively to reduce SSI rates for patients undergoing clean-contaminated surgeries such as hysterectomy. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of a quality improvement project adding metronidazole to cefazolin for antibiotic prophylaxis on SSI rate for women undergoing gynecologic surgery at a comprehensive cancer center...

The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) acknowledges gun violence as a public health crisis in the United States, with a significant impact on pregnant and postpartum people. We recognize the urgent need for a robust, equitable, data-driven approach to mitigate the impact of access to firearms and accompanying violence on pregnant and postpartum individuals and communities. As such, SMFM endorses the following policy principles: - SMFM calls on relevant government agencies and public funders to support and finance anti-violence and firearm safety research, public health surveillance activities, education, and other initiatives...

BACKGROUND: Standardization of procedures improves outcomes. Though systematic reviews have summarized the evidence-based steps (EBS) of cesarean delivery (CD), their bundled implementation has not been investigated. OBJECTIVE: In this pre- and post-implementation trial, we sought to ascertain if bundled EBS of CD, compared to surgeon's preference, improves outcomes. STUDY DESIGN: A StaRI (Standards for Reporting Implementation Studies) compliant, multi-center pre- and post-implementation trial at 4 teaching hospitals was conducted...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the outcomes associated with the administration of maternal intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) in high-risk red blood cell (RBC) alloimmunized pregnancies. DATA SOURCES: We systematically searched Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Library until June 2023. STUDY ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: We included studies reporting on pregnancies with severe RBC alloimmunization, defined as either a previous fetal or neonatal death or the need for IUT before 24 weeks in the previous pregnancy as a result of hemolytic disease of fetus and newborn (HDFN)...

BACKGROUND: The recent paradigm shift of treating individuals at risk of late preterm birth with antenatal corticosteroids warrants an assessment of the effect of single dosage. OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes of neonates born in the late preterm period (34.0-36.6 weeks) following a single dose of antenatal corticosteroids versus placebo. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a secondary analysis of the Antenatal Late Preterm Steroids (ALPS) trial (Gyamfi-Bannerman C...

BACKGROUND: It is still unclear whether social support can moderate the high risk of depression and anxiety due to spontaneous miscarriage. OBJECTIVE: This study prospectively investigated the associations of spontaneous miscarriage with risks of depression and anxiety and evaluated the interactions between spontaneous miscarriage and the degree of social support in relation to depression and anxiety risks. STUDY DESIGN: A total of 179000 participants with pregnancy experience and free of depression or anxiety at baseline from the UK Biobank were included...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Jordan Stone, Suchitra Chandrasekaran
The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine supports federal and state policies that expand Medicaid eligibility and extend Medicaid coverage through 12 months postpartum to address the maternal morbidity and mortality crisis and improve health equity. Access to coverage is essential to optimize maternal health following pregnancy and childbirth and avoid preventable causes of maternal morbidity and mortality that extend throughout the first year postpartum. The Society opposes policies such as work requirements or limitations on coverage for undocumented individuals that unnecessarily impose restrictions on Medicaid eligibility for beneficiaries...

OBJECTIVE: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with obstetrical and long-term cardiovascular complications. While platelet hyperresponsiveness in type-2 diabetes mellitus has been well-characterized and shown to play a crucial role in cardiovascular complications, this aspect has been little studied in GDM. We aimed to evaluate platelet reactivity, in vivo platelet activation, and endothelial function in GDM compared with normal pregnancy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Prospective case-control study including 23 GDM and 23 healthy pregnant (HP) women studied at 26-28, 34-36 weeks of gestation and 8 weeks post-partum...

BACKGROUND: Umbilical artery gas results help obstetricians to assess fetal well being during the course of labor and guide screening decisions on eligibility for therapeutic hypothermia or also know as whole body or head cooling. The accuracy of results, especially base deficit on arterial cord gas analysis, in predicting brain injury is questioned. A novel biomarker specifically calculated for fetal acid-base physiology and response to asphyxia-neonatal eucapnic pH as a marker of neonatal metabolic acidosis-has the potential to be an accurate predictor of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy contributes to morbidity and mortality among neonates ≥ 360 weeks' gestation. Evidence of preventative antenatal treatment is limited. Magnesium sulfate has neuroprotective properties among preterm fetuses. Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a risk factor for hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and magnesium sulfate is recommended for maternal seizure prophylaxis among patients with pre-eclampsia with severe features. OBJECTIVES: 1) Determine trends in incidence of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, antenatal magnesium sulfate and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, 2) evaluate the association between hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and 3) evaluate if, among patients with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, the odds of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy is mitigated by receipt of antenatal magnesium sulfate...

BACKGROUND: SARS-CoV-2 infection during pregnancy is associated with increased risk of stillbirth, preeclampsia and preterm birth. However, this does not appear to be due to intrauterine fetal infection, as vertical transmission is rarely reported. There is a paucity of data regarding associated placental SARS-CoV-2 histopathology and their relationship to timing and severity of infection. OBJECTIVE: To determine if maternal SARS-CoV-2 infection is associated with specific patterns of placental injury and whether these findings differ by gestational age at time of infection or disease severity...
