Risk-adapted management for vasa praevia: a retrospective study about individualized timing of caesarean section

PurposeVasa praevia is a rare condition with high foetal mortality if not detected prenatally. There is limited evidence available to determine the ideal timing of delivery and management recommendations. The aim of this study was to critically review our experience with vasa praevia, with a focus on diagnosis and management.MethodsIn a retrospective analysis, all cases of vasa...

Does anti-Mullerian hormone predict the outcome of further pregnancies in idiopathic recurrent miscarriage? A retrospective cohort study

PurposeTo evaluate whether anti-Mullerian hormone, basal follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol, and female age would predict future outcomes in women with idiopathic recurrent miscarriage.MethodsOne hundred and sixteen women with idiopathic recurrent miscarriage were retrospectively included. Luteal support with or without a combined treatment regimen for...

Cervical length dynamics in triplet pregnancies: a retrospective cohort study

Purpose To review our experience with a screening program that included sequential cervical length measurements in our large population of triplet pregnancies. Methods Seventy-eight triplet pregnancies were retrospectively included. Cervical length measurements were performed by transvaginal ultrasound in 2-week intervals from week 16 + 0 onwards in a tertiary-care center in...

HPV prevalence in vulvar cancer in Austria

Background Even if vulvar cancer is not common, over one hundred women are affected in Austria per year. There is strong evidence that basaloid and warty variants are associated with types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Methods The aim of this study is to analyze the types of HPV in vulvar cancer in Austria. This cross-sectional period-prevalence international collaborative study...

Decreased Ovarian Reserve Predicts Inexplicability of Recurrent Miscarriage? A Retrospective Analysis

Objective To evaluate anti-Mullerian hormone, basal follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol, and female age in women with recurrent miscarriage and to compare women with explained and idiopathic recurrent miscarriage. Design Retrospective cohort study. Setting University hospital, tertiary care center. Patients Women with recurrent miscarriage (78 explained...

The predictive value of sequential cervical length screening in singleton pregnancies after cerclage: a retrospective cohort study

Background There are few valid predictors for preterm delivery after cerclage. Experience with a screening program that included four sequential cervical length measurements in singleton pregnancies after cerclage is reviewed. Methods In this retrospective cohort study, 88 singleton pregnancies after cerclage were included. Cervical length (CL) measurements were performed...

Altered glucose profiles and risk for hypoglycaemia during oral glucose tolerance testing in pregnancies after gastric bypass surgery

Aims/hypothesis A history of gastric bypass surgery can influence the results of the OGTT recommended during pregnancy. Therefore, we compared OGTT glucose kinetics and pregnancy outcome between pregnant gastric bypass patients and BMI-matched, lean and obese controls. Methods Medical records were used to collect data on glucose measurements during the 2 h 75 g OGTT as well as on...

A retrospective study on perineal lacerations in vaginal delivery and the individual performance of experienced mifwives

Background Medical staff’s influence on patient outcomes has become a subject of interest. We evaluated experienced midwives and compared their performance concerning perineal lacerations (PL). Methods In a retrospective cohort study, 1937 women with singleton pregnancies who had delivered spontaneously with a cephalic presentation by experienced midwives in the Medical...

What do women with gynecologic cancer know about HPV and their individual disease? A pilot study

Background The vaccinations against human papilloma virus (HPV) are highly effective in preventing persistent infection. The level of knowledge about HPV and the consequences of an infection with this virus are low in the general population and in patients who suffer from HPV-associated diseases. We aimed to compare the level of knowledge about HPV and about the women’s...

Association of TAP Gene Polymorphisms and Risk of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia

Background. Transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP) is responsible for peptide loading onto class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC-I) molecules. TAP seems to facilitate the detection of HPV by MHC-I molecules and contributes to successful eradication of HPV. TAP polymorphisms could have an important impact on the course of HPV infection. Objective. The aim of...

The prognostic value of estrogen receptor beta and proline-, glutamic acid- and leucine-rich protein 1 (PELP1) expression in ovarian cancer

Background Proline-, glutamic acid-, and leucine-rich protein 1 (PELP1), a coregulator of the estrogen receptors (ERs) alpha and beta, is a potential proto-oncogene in hormone dependent gynecological malignancies. To better understand the role of PELP1 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), the protein expression and prognostic significance of PELP1 was evaluated together with...
