Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Disparities in PPH-associated survival between high and low-/middle-income countries reflect an imperative for low-resource countries to improve strategies for rapid diagnosis and treatment. A review of current PPH diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and access to care in low-income countries has been used to understand, extract, and report the challenges that public health systems face in trying to sol...

OBJECTIVE To explore the impact of lymphadenectomy on the prognosis of reproductive-age patients with clinical-apparent stage I epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS Data of reproductive-age women with stage I EOC, diagnosed between 2010 and 2016, were extracted from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database. Five-year cancer-specific survival (CSS) was evaluated with Kaplan-Meier method. Multivariate Cox analysis was performed to evaluate the effect of lymph node dissection on...

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of appendectomy in surgical excision of endometriosis and to assess complications associated with appendectomy. METHODS Retrospective study of women undergoing appendectomy for pelvic pain and/or endometriosis during a primary gynecologic procedure. RESULTS Record review was performed of 609 women who underwent appendectomy between 2013 and 2019 for pelvic pain (6.9%, 42/609), stage I-II endometriosis (63.7%, 388/609), or stage III-IV endometriosis (29.4%, 179/609)...
Ovarian cancer is one of the most common gynecological malignancies, with epithelial ovarian cancer being the most frequent histological type. Clinical onset is often insidious with subacute non-specific symptoms; therefore, these tumors are usually diagnosed in advanced stages, thus implying high mortality rates. However, ovarian cancer can sometimes produce acute manifestations which require emergent intervention, such as ascites, pleural effusion, and intestinal symptoms; among the latter, in...

The Society of Maternal and Fetal Medicine (SMFM) hosts the Annual Pregnancy Meeting (APM), which highlights scientific updates in obstetrics and maternal health. The SMFM 2018 annual report stated a 19% growth in international membership; however, low- and middle-income country (LMIC) representation was not reported. Several inefficiencies for clinical research in LMICs have been previously identified, most notably elucidation of research gaps, collaboration, and standardization.
Transplacental passage of antibodies is a key element of neonatal immunity. Data from the existing literature show that maternal immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies, produced in response to SARS-CoV-2, are transferred across the placenta after both asymptomatic and symptomatic COVID-19 infection during pregnancy [1].

Objective To systematically evaluate the content and quality of national and international guidelines on vaginal mesh procedures for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Methods We searched PubMed, Medline, Web of Science, and ScienceDirect from inception to March 2020 and organizations' websites. The quality of the guidelines was assessed independently by six appraisers using the Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation (AGREE II) instrument. Results Five guidelines were included. Most guide...

OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the maternal and perinatal outcomes in a cohort of pregnant women at high risk of venous thromboembolism. METHODS Venous thromboembolism high-risk women were evaluated in a multidisciplinary program using a complete diagnostic workup, and specific prophylactic or therapeutic treatment. RESULTS Women were considered at high risk of venous thromboembolism in 57% (85/148) because of prior (75) or current (10) thromboembolism, and in 27% (40/148)...

OBJECTIVES To determine the cut-off values for low birth weight (LBW) and high birth weight (HBW) of Sudanese newborns. METHODS Data (maternal age, parity, birth weight, and gender of the newborn) from women (n = 2818) who delivered at Saad Abualila Hospital in Khartoum were retrieved from the medical files. RESULTS The cut-off for LBW (the 10th centile) was 2400 g and the 90th centile (HBW) was 3700 g. Out of 2818 newborns, 317 (11.2%) had birth weights below 2400 g. Using the WHO (traditional)...
