PURPOSE: The implementation of the universal two-child policy contributes to adverse pregnancy outcomes, but how the policy change leads to adverse pregnancy outcomes is not well elaborated. In this study, we aimed to compare maternal characteristics and complications, accessed the change in the proportion of maternal characteristics and maternal complications, and evaluated the mediation of maternal characteristics on maternal complications. METHODS: Demographic and clinical data of three-level sample facilities were extracted from China's National Maternity Near Miss Obstetrics Surveillance System from Jan 1, 2012 to May 31, 2021...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to compare the effect of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) trigger alone versus dual trigger comprising GnRHa and low-dose human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on reproductive outcomes in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) who received the freeze-all strategy. METHODS: A total of 615 cycles were included in this retrospective cohort study. Propensity score matching (PSM) was performed to control potential confounding factors between GnRHa-trigger group (0...

METHODS: This was a prospective observational study at a university-affiliated hospital. All women undergoing either a USG-MVA or electric vacuum aspiration (EVA) were invited to return 3-6 months later for follow-up at which women completed a questionnaire to document their post-evacuation menstrual and reproductive history, and underwent a hysteroscopy if they were not pregnant...

This review article considers the physiology, differential diagnosis and immediate management of vasovagal response, vascular injury and carbon dioxide embolism caused during the creation of the laparoscopic pneumoperitoneum. These pathologies account for over half of all laparoscopic complications and therefore, by taking a systematic approach to these possibly life-threatening events, laparoscopy can become even safer.

OBJECTIVE: Previously, lipid nanoparticles (LDE) injected in women with endometriosis were shown to concentrate in the lesions. Here, the safety and feasibility of LDE carrying methotrexate (MTX) to treat deep infiltrating endometriosis was tested. DESIGN: Prospective pilot study. SETTING: Perola Byington Hospital Reference for Women's Health. SUBJECTS: Eleven volunteers (aged 30-47 years, BMI 26.15 ± 6.50 kg/m2 ) with endometriosis with visual analog scale pelvic pain scores (VAS) > 7 and rectosigmoid lesions were enrolled in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Epidural anesthesia is a well-established procedure in obstetrics for pain relief in labor and has been well researched as it comes to cephalic presentation. However, in vaginal intended breech delivery less research has addressed the influence of epidural anesthesia. The Greentop guideline on breech delivery states that there's little evidence and recommends further evaluation. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare maternal and neonatal outcomes in vaginally intended breech deliveries at term with and without an epidural anesthesia...

PURPOSE: Gestational weight gain (GWG) is an important contributor to pregnancy outcomes in the general obstetric population and different subgroups. The corresponding information in women with thyroid conditions is limited. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between GWG according to institute of medicine (IOM) and pregnancy outcomes in women with thyroid disorders. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 620 pregnant women either treated with levothyroxine (N = 545) or attended because of hyperthyroidism during pregnancy (N = 75)...

PURPOSE: The market and application possibilities for artificial intelligence are currently growing at high speed and are increasingly finding their way into gynecology. While the medical side is highly represented in the current literature, the patient's perspective is still lagging behind. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the recommendations of ChatGPT regarding patient inquiries about the possible therapy of gynecological leading symptoms in a palliative situation by experts...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the incidence, indications, risk factors and pregnancy outcomes of postpartum hemorrhage resulting in peripartum hysterectomy (PH). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients with postpartum hemorrhage requiring surgical procedures at ≥ 28 weeks of gestation from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2022 at a tertiary hospital in Shanghai, China. The patients were divided into a PH group and a non-PH group. Maternal clinical characteristics, the management of postpartum hemorrhage, pregnancy outcomes were compared between groups...

PURPOSE: Short-acting progestin-only injectables containing depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) are a safe method of contraception. Although DMPA has been available for several decades, there is little data on its influence on the risk of breast cancer. Hence, the aim of this paper was to provide an overview of the existing studies and create clarity regarding a possible association with breast cancer. METHODS: Literature searches were executed in MEDLINE, Embase, the Cochrane Library, ClinicalTrials...

PURPOSE: Functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) is due to hypothalamic dysregulation. Literature lacks data about prolactin in FHA women, although both prolactin levels and FHA are associated with stress. Moreover, polycystic ovarian morphology is common in FHA and there is an association between FHA and polycystic ovary syndrome. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess prolactin levels in FHA patients and controls with a special focus on factors influencing prolactin levels, that could be considered as "sensors" of the hypothalamic-pituitary dysregulation...

PURPOSE: The aim of this meta-analysis was comparing the efficacy of GnRH antagonist (GnRH-ant) protocol and progestin-primed ovarian stimulation (PPOS) in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) women. METHODS: A search was conducted from PubMed, Embase, The Cochrane library, Web of Science, and Scopus databases to collect clinical papers regarding GnRH-ant protocol and PPOS protocol from inception to September 2023. Subsequently, the retrieved documents were screened, and the content of the documents that conformed to the requirements was extracted...

PURPOSE: To compare conventional bipolar electrosurgery with advanced bipolar vessel sealing (ABVS) devices for total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH). METHODS: A systematic review was conducted by searching Scopus, PubMed/MEDLINE, ScienceDirect, and Cochrane Library from January 1989 to November 2021. We identified all studies comparing ABVS devices with conventional bipolar electrosurgery in TLH and reporting at least one of the following outcomes: total blood loss, total operative time, hospital stay, perioperative complications, or costs...

PURPOSE: Individuals with cancer predisposition syndromes (CPS) inherit elevated cancer risks. Medical supply gaps for people at risk of CPS cause insufficient outreach and miss potential benefits of individualized care strategies. Increased awareness of CPS and progress in the eHealth sector are untapped sources of health care improvement for affected individuals. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study addressed German-speaking medical students with an online questionnaire in respect to their knowledge of CPS, their medical education, and perspectives...
