KOL-Index: 57 Induction of labor is a common obstetric procedure performed in nearly a quarter of all deliveries in the United States. Pharmacological (prostaglandins, oxytocin) and/or mechanical methods (balloon catheters) are commonly used for labor induction; however, there is ongoing debate as to which method is the safest and most effective. This narrative review discusses key limitations of ...

KOL-Index: 56 The coronavirus disease 2019 has caused over 2 million deaths worldwide, with over 412,000 deaths reported in Unites States. To date, at least 57,786 pregnant women in the United States have been infected, and 71 pregnant women have died. Although pregnant women are at higher risk of severe coronavirus disease 2019-related illness, clinical trials for the available vaccines excluded pregnant ...

KOL-Index: 49 INTRODUCTION: This study aimed to evaluate reproducibility and agreement of fetal cardiac shape and deformation using FetalHQ. METHODS: Fifty normal fetuses at 20-38 weeks of gestation were evaluated. Two operators independently selected an optimal cardiac cycle using FetalHQ®™software for speckle tracking analysis. Intra- and interobserver correlation coefficient and limits of agreement for ...

KOL-Index: 46 The etiology of preeclampsia is unknown. At present, 4 hypotheses are the subject of extensive investigation, as follows: (1) Placental ischemia-Increased trophoblast deportation, as a consequence of ischemia, may inflict endothelial cell dysfunction. (2) Very low-density lipoprotein versus toxicity-preventing activity-In compensation for increased energy demand during pregnancy, ...

KOL-Index: 46 There is a rapidly expanding literature on the in vitro antiviral activity of drugs that may be repurposed for therapy or chemoprophylaxis against severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). However, this has not been accompanied by a comprehensive evaluation of the target plasma and lung concentrations of these drugs following approved dosing in humans. Accordingly, ...

KOL-Index: 45 The precise pathogenesis of convulsions with the preeclampsia syndrome is enigmatic, the two prevailing schemes are vasospasm with ischemia and hypertensive encephalopathy. Eclampsia prevention can be primary by preventing worsening of preeclampsia; it can be secondary by using agents to prevent convulsions in women with established preeclampsia; and it can be tertiary by preventing ...

KOL-Index: 45 BACKGROUND: Pyelonephritis, a leading cause of infection during pregnancy, is associated with increased maternal adverse outcomes. Therefore, early recognition and intervention of pyelonephritis are important. Early recognition of pyelonephritis has historically been dependent on fever and costovertebral angle tenderness. However, the reliability of these findings to distinguish women who ...

KOL-Index: 44 Qualitative and quantitative measurement of urine protein excretion is one of the most common tests performed during pregnancy. For more than 100 years, proteinuria was necessary for the diagnosis of preeclampsia, but recent guidelines recommend that proteinuria is sufficient but not necessary for the diagnosis. Still, in clinical practice, most patients with gestational hypertension will be ...
KOL-Index: 43 The centuries-old approach to the prevention of eclampsia and its associated maternal morbidity and mortality is based on the recognition of the presence of premonitory signs and symptoms such as hypertension and proteinuria. The spectrum of preceding signs and symptoms came to be known as preeclampsia, which is debatably considered to be an early stage on a clinical continuum possibly ...
