BACKGROUND: Post-term pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of maternal complications, respiratory distress and trauma to the neonate. Amniotic membrane sweeping has been recommended as a simple procedure to promote the spontaneous onset of labour. However, despite its widespread use, there is an absence of evidence on (a) its effectiveness and (b) its optimal timing and frequency. The primary aim of the MILO Study is to inform the optimal design of a future definitive randomised trial ...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the correlation between Umbilical Artery (UA) Doppler and its feasibility across categories of maternal BMI in the presence of foetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS 1074 Singleton pregnancies with suspected FGR on ultrasound examination between 24+0 and 36+0 weeks' gestation were reviewed. Evaluation of the UA Doppler was performed at 1-2 weekly intervals. Abnormal UA Doppler findings and delivery outcomes were compared between the different maternal BMI categories. RESU...

Objective It is well established that women with a previous vaginal delivery have higher success rates in relation to vaginal birth after cesarean than those without. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of past mode of delivery on contractile parameters of human myometrium in vitro. Study Design Myometrial strips were excised from 64 women at cesarean delivery (CD) and recordings of spontaneous contractile activity analyzed and compared across three clinical groups: (1) women with no...

With the increasing popularity of cloud computing, a new technology and business model called cloud service brokerage (CSB) is emerging. CSB is, in essence, a middleman in the cloud-computing supply chain to connect prospective cloud buyers with suitable service providers. This chapter focuses on a type of CSB, B2B cloud marketplaces. Recently, this type of marketplace has evolved into two broad categories—business application marketplaces and API marketplaces. This chapter reviews the character...

OBJECTIVE: Contemporary approaches to monitoring quality of care in obstetrics often focus on comparing Cesarean Delivery rates. Varied rates can complicate interpretation of quality of care. We previously developed a risk prediction tool for nulliparous women who may require intrapartum Cesarean delivery which identified five key predictors. Our objective with this study was to ascertain if patient heterogeneity can account for much of the observed variation in Cesarean delivery rates, thereby ...

INTRODUCTION: Inactivating mutations in CYP24A1, encoding vitamin D-24-hydroxylase, can lead to an accumulation of active vitamin D metabolites and consequent hypercalcaemia. Patient (infantile and adult) presentation is varied and includes mild-severe hypercalcaemia, hypercalciuria, nephrocalcinosis and nephrolithiasis. This study aimed to characterize the clinical and biochemical phenotypes of a family with two CYP24A1 missense variants. METHODS: The proband and seven family members underwent ...

Abstract Concentrations of 10 perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) were measured in 16 pools of human milk from Ireland. Only four PFASs were detected (PFOA, PFNA, PFHxS and PFOS), with concentrations dominated by PFOA which was detected in all samples at a median of 0.10 ng/mL. Concentrations and the relative abundance of PFASs in Ireland are within the range reported for other countries. Estimated exposures for nursing infants to perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) ...

Abstract The brominated flame retardants (BFRs) hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD), eight polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), and decabromodiphenyl ethane (DBDPE) were measured in 16 pools of human milk from Ireland. Concentrations of BDEs-47, -99, −100, −153, and HBCDD were significantly lower (p
