OBJECTIVE null We aimed to quantify the risk of future maternal type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) based on the type and number of abnormal 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) values and the diagnostic criteria used for the diagnosis of GDM. null RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS null We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study of all nulliparous women with a live singleton birth who underwent testing for GDM using a 75-g OGTT in Ontari...

INTRODUCTION Since 2013 various guidelines for hypertension in pregnancy were refined, no longer requiring proteinuria as a requisite for preeclampsia. We aimed to evaluate the impact of the new definition on preterm birth (PTB) and adverse pregnancy outcomes. METHODS Women delivering in Ontario between 4/2012-11/2016 were included. Delivery <240/7 weeks, major fetal anomalies or preexisting renal disease were excluded. The primary outcome was livebirth < 37, < 34 or < 32 weeks. Rates, adjusted ...

OBJECTIVE To develop twin-specific outcome-based OGTT diagnostic thresholds for GDM based on the risk of future maternal type-2 diabetes. DESIGN A population-based retrospective cohort study (2007-2017). SETTING Ontario, Canada METHODS: Nulliparous women with a live singleton (N=55,361) or twin (N=1,308) birth who underwent testing for GDM using a 75g-OGTT in Ontario, Canada (2007-2017). We identified the 75g-OGTT thresholds in twin pregnancies that were associated with similar incidence rates o...

Objectives Treatment for postpartum anemia frequently entails oral iron supplementation, but questions remain regarding its optimal dosing, frequency, and efficacy. The objective of this study was to describe oral iron prescribing practices in post-partum women and identify factors predictive of iron supplementation. Methods A retrospective chart review of women delivering at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre between May 2019 and April 2020 was undertaken. This group was chosen due to the routin...

Objectives To examine rates and determinants of mother’s own milk (MOM) feeding at hospital discharge in a cohort of infants born very preterm within the Canadian Neonatal Network (CNN). Study design This was a population-based cohort study of infants born at Results Among the 6404 infants born very preterm and discharged home during the study period, 4457 (70%) received MOM or MOM supplemented with formula. Rates of MOM feeding at discharge varied from 49% to 87% across NICUs. Determinants asso...

Abstract Background We assessed the association of early term at first birth (ETB) with the risk of preterm birth (PTB) and ETB in women with 3 consecutive deliveries. Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all women with 3 consecutive singleton births at a single institute from 1994 to 2013. The risk of PTB ( Results Of 49,259 women delivered in our center during the study period, 4,038 met inclusion criteria. The rate for subsequent PTB, spontaneous PTB and recurrent ETB in the 3...

Abstract Background Gestational diabetes (GDM) is associated with accelerated fetal growth in singleton pregnancies, but may impact twin pregnancies differently due to the slower growth of twin fetuses during the third trimester and their greater predisposition to fetal growth restriction. Objective To evaluate the association of GDM with longitudinal fetal growth in twin pregnancies, and to compare this association with that observed in singleton pregnancies Study Design This was a retrospectiv...

There is little evidence evaluating angiogenic growth factor testing in real-world obstetric settings. This investigation evaluated maternal and perinatal pregnancy outcomes associated with maternal PlGF (placental growth factor) levels in real-world clinical care of high-risk pregnancies. From March 2017 to December 2019, 979 pregnant women with suspected risk of placental dysfunction, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, or fetal growth restriction completed PlGF testing between 20+0 and 35+6 ...

OBJECTIVE To compare neonatal outcomes of women with a body mass index (BMI) of ≥35 kg/m2 who underwent a trial of labour with those of women who underwent a planned primary caesarean section (CS). DESIGN A retrospective cohort study of births between April 2012 and March 2014. SETTING A provincial database: Better Outcomes Registry & Network (BORN) Ontario, Canada. POPULATION A cohort of 8752 women with a BMI of ≥35 kg/m2 who had a singleton birth at 38-42 weeks of gestation. METHODS Neonatal o...
