PROBLEM: To evaluate the association between serum presepsin (soluble CD14 antigen subtype, sCD14-ST) levels soon after the appearance of signs of preterm delivery and preterm delivery within 48 h, before the 34th and 37th gestational weeks and the possible additional value of concurrently evaluated ultrasound vaginal cervicometry with serum presepsin measurement. METHODOLOGY: A total of 60 females were included. Serum presepsin was measured by a chemiluminescent immunoassay...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the fetal fibronetcin (fFN) test and ultrasonographic cervical length measurement used alone or in combination with each other in order to further improve the identification of patients in preterm labor. METHODS: Prospective multicenter observational study on patients between 24 and 32 weeks of gestation with symptoms of preterm labor (total patients = 132). The endpoint was the delivery at 34 weeks or more...

BACKGROUND: Preterm birth is the birth occurring between 20-37 weeks gestation. Is responsible for 75% of neonatal mortality in infants without congenital malformations. OBJECTIVE: To determine the prognostic factor of cervical length measurement in threatened preterm labor, in patients treated at a hospital in Veracruz, Mexico. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Observational, prospective, longitudinal and descriptive study performed at the Obstetrics and Perinatology services of the Hospital General de Zona Núm...

Cervical insufficiency is one of the risk factors for late spontaneous miscarriage and preterm labor. As cervical insufficiency can reoccur in the every subsequent pregnancy, there is a need for precise diagnostic modality and therapeutic procedure in order to reduce perinatal mortality and morbidity. Traditionally, the diagnosis of cervical insufficiency was made based on the patient's history. In this cases the intervention in the form of the cervical cerclage, was not found to be useful, i.e. perinatal mortality and morbidity remained unchanged...

BACKGROUND: The objective of the study was to verify whether ultrasound vaginal cervicometry, performed in the 18th-20th week of gestation, can effectively predict preterm delivery. MATERIAL/METHODS: 279 singleton pregnancies were prospectively studied from the middle of gestation until delivery. In the 18th-20th week of gestation we performed ultrasound vaginal cervicometry, which we used to determine the length of the cervix, judge the shape of the internal os, and evaluate the cervicometry as normal or abnormal on the basis of these parameters...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate, which of selected anamnestic, laboratory and ultrasonographic (USG) parameters could contribute to the prediction of prematurity. DESIGN: Prospective, observational, clinical study. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1st Faculty of Medicine and the General Faculty Hospital, Charles University, Prague. METHODS: 349 women with the singleton pregnancy were followed from the half of the 2nd trimester until the end of gestation...

The delivery in 66 pregnant women previously operated on the uterus is analyzed. 40% of women with cicatrices on the uterus after cesarean section gave birth to children via the natural route. In order to improve the safety of spontaneous labor, echographic examination of the lower segment of the uterus in labor was carried out in these women, as well as ultrasonic cervicometry and monitoring of the detachment and delivery of the placenta.

Diagnostic methods for the incompetence of the internal cervical os are described. The incompetence of the internal cervical os when there is no pregnancy is especially dealt with. For the diagnosis five tests are used (measurement of the uterine cavity and palpation of the cervical channel, Palmer test, Bergman-Svennerund test cervicohysterography, and X-ray cervicometry). Only in strictly indicated cases should cerclage be applied. In cases with an undeveloped clinical picture the operation could be recommended twelfth week of pregnancy...
