  • Hepatitis B and C Co-Infection among HIV Pregnant Women and Fetal Outcome
           in Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, Plateau State

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 3Oga EO, Egbodo CO, Oyebode T.BACKGROUND: The shared route of transmission could suggest that many HIV positive clients may also be at risk of HBV and HCV infections. HIV co infection with HBV and or HCV may further worsen the outcome for the mother of the infant with a more rapid clinical and immunological progression. The magnitude of this impact of HIV co infection with HBV and or HCV on pregnancy outcome is an important topic of research. Objectives: The aim of the study is to determine the magnitude of Hepatitis B and C co-infection among HIV positive pregnant women and fetal outcome in JUTH. Methods: A longitudinal study was carried out among 150 HIV positive pregnant women seen at the PMTCT clinics of Jos University Teaching Hospital. The women were screened for hepatitis B and C virus infection at enrollment, CD4 count levels were also determined. The women were followed up to delivery to evaluate the pregnancy outcome. All relevant data including the socio-demographic information, obstetric history, past medical history and the viral hepatitis results, CD4 counts levels, and pregnancy outcome were collected and analysed using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 20. Chicago Illinois. Results: Of the 150 studied subjects, 7(4.7%) and 1(.7%) respectively were seropositive for hepatitis B and C virus infection. There was no maternal nor neonatal death. No woman had triple infections. 137(91.3%) pregnant women were followed up to delivery for birth outcome. Conclusion: Hepatitis B virus infection (4.7%) is relatively common in our environment. Hepatitis C virus infection (0.7%) is however less common. There is no difference in birth outcome between women on HAART with HIV/HBV and HIV/HCV co infection and other women.
       
  • Instrumental Vaginal Delivery at Jos University Teaching Hospital (Juth):
           Forceps Versus Vacuum Extraction, a Four Year Retrospective Review

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 3Egbodo CO, Edugbe AE, Akunaeziri AU, Ayuba C., Oga EO, Shambe HI, Kahansim ML, Ocheke ANBackground: Instrumental vaginal delivery, either with forceps or vacuum-assisted, is used to facilitate childbirth and to avoid caesarean section delivery (CS) and its associated morbidities. Nevertheless, instrumental techniques are associated with a greater tendency for birth injury than spontaneous delivery. There is a need to maintain and improve the skills for this procedure through training and research in order to improve the benefits for both mothers and their babies. Objectives: 1. To determine and compare the incidence of vacuum versus forceps. 2. Indications of instrumental vaginal delivery. 3. Compare the foetal and maternal outcome of vacuum and forceps deliveries. Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective review on instrumental vaginal deliveries (vacuum extraction and forceps delivery) carried out between 1st January 2011 and 31st December 2014. The hospital records of all the patients who had vacuum or forceps delivery were obtained and data on age, parity, booking status, and type of procedure performed, APGAR scores of babies delivered and complications were entered into a proforma and analyzed using SPSS software for Windows version 16.0. Results: During this study period, there were 7,503 deliveries out of which 42 (0.56%) were instrumental deliveries. The rates were 0.53% and 0.03% for vacuum and forceps deliveries respectively. Unbooked patients were 6 (14.3%) while 36 (85.7%) were booked. The commonest indication was material exhaustion (35.6%). Mean birth weight of babies were 3091.84g. The perinatal outcome showed that 77.5% had Apgar scores of 7 and above at one minute. This was increased to 87.5% at the 5th min. the mean blood loss was 310mls. Thirty of the mothers were free of complications. The commonest complication was perineal tear ac-counting for 11.9%. Conclusion: The rate of instrumental vaginal deliveries in this institution is low and indications for the procedure are similar to those found elsewhere. It is also evident from this studies that forceps delivery is a dying saving art as compared to vacuum delivery, therefore, obstetricians should be trained properly so as to optimize their benefit. There is significant difference in terms of foetal and maternal outcomes between those who had forceps delivery and those who had vacuum delivery.
       
  • Review of Cervical Screening in a Nigerian Tertiary Hospital

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 4Egbodo CO, Edugbe AE, Akunaeziri AU, Ayuba C., Oga EO, Shambe HI, Kahansim ML, Ocheke ANBackground: Cervical cancer is the commonest gynaecological cancer in developing countries due to poor uptake of screening services. Objective: To determine the prevalence and pattern of abnormal Pap smears and the relationship of the abnormal smears with risk factors for the development of cervical cancers. Materials and Methods: Retrospective analysis of data from the cervical cancer screening centre of the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH). Results: Of the 3875 women screened, 1418 (36.6%) had abnormal smears with low grade squamous intra-epithelial lesion (38.2%) being the commonest lesion. Among those with abnormal smears, 590 (41.6%) had one risk factor each and 828 (58.4%) had two or more risk factors while those women who were 50 years and above constituted the highest number with abnormal smears. Conclusion: This study showed that only few women access cervical screening services and amongst those who accessed the services, a large proportion had abnormal smears. Also, the likelihood of having abnormal cervical smears increased with the number of risk factors and advancing age. There should therefore be more awareness campaigns and cervical screening services should be made accessible and affordable for all women.
       
  • Profile of Risk Factors in Relation to the Outcome of Screening for
           Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) among Pregnant Women in Jos University
           Teaching Hospital (Juth), Jos

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 3Oga EO, Egbodo CO, Lucius CIBackground: Several risk factors have been identified as contributing to the development of gestational diabetes mellitus. Knowing and ranking these risk factors for gestational diabetes mellitus will provide useful information for health care providers in educating women on the need to reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes mellitus. Objectives: The aim of the study is to determine the profile of risk factors in relation tothe outcome of screening for gestational diabetes mellitus. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out among 130 pregnant women enrolledfrom the antenatal clinic of Jos University Teaching Hospital JUTH. Using a convenient sampling method, screening was done between 24-32 weeks gestation using the 75g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Gestational diabetes mellitus was diagnosed according to WHO criteria. All relevant data including the socio demographic information, obstetric history, past medical history and risk factors for gestational diabetes mellitus, OGTT results were collected and analyzed using the statistical package for social science (SPSS) version 20 Chicago Illinois. Results: Of 130 pregnant women enrolled, 124 subjects were eligible for screening outof which 10(8.1%) had gestational diabetes mellitus giving a prevalence of 8.1%. The pattern of glucose tolerance in the study population indicated that 114(91.9%) had normal glucose tolerance. In the study population current glycosuria and positive family history of diabetes milletus were the most common risk factors for GDM in order of ranking. Conclusion: The prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus was relatively high amongour antenatal population. Women with current glycosuria and positive family history of diabetes have higher likelihood of having gestational diabetes mellitus and should be screened.

           Umbilical Artery in Predicting Fetal Distress and Intrauterine Grow
           Restriction in Preeclampsia

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 2Tran Danh Cuong, Pham Thi Mai Anh, Nguyen Thi Mai Phuong, Phan Truong DuyetThe cross-sectional study among 484 patients who were diagnosed with pre-eclampsia at National Hospital of Gynecology and Obstetrics and Haiphong provincial hospital of Obstetrics and Gynecology from September 2013 to December 2016. Objective: The study evaluates the value of absence or reversed of end-diastolic flow velocity in the umbilical artery in a prediction of fetal distress and intrauterine grow restriction in preeclampsia. Results: The incidence of fetal distress and intrauterine grow restriction in case of absence of end diastolic flow in the umbilical artery is 96.3%, in case of reversed of end diastolic flow is 100%. Conclusion: Absence of end-diastolic flow velocity or reverse flow in umbilical artery is a negative predictor of perinatal outcomes.
       
  • Genetic Analysis for Prenatal Diagnosis via Amniocentesis at Vietnam
           National Hospital of Obstetrics and Gyneacology from 2012 to 2016

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 2Cuong Danh Tran, Van Bich Nguyen, Minh Xuan Thi Bui, Lan Ngoc Thi Hoang, Anh Toan Ngo, Toan Van NgoThe study aimed at genetic analysis of amniocentesis (karyotypes) for prenatal diagnosis. Methodology: this is a retrospective study among pregnant women indicated for amniocentesis and consent to the study. 11,463 cases were included to the study during 5 years’ period from 2012 to 2016. Results: The rate of successful karyotyping was 99.9%, 10 cases (0.1%) were failure to obtain karyotype. The complication of amniocentesis was miscarriage (0.05%). Acceptance rates for amniocentesis in total number of deliveries were 10.7%, and indications for amniocentesis were mainly high-risk pregnancy such as advanced maternal age, increased nuchal transluciency and abnormalities were observed by ultrasonography. Chromosomal abnormalities are 6.7%, popular conditions were found including trisomy 21(40.6%), trisomy 18 (13.8%), trisomy 13 (2.1%), 45, XO (1.9%). Conclusion: Obtaining fetal fraction by amniocentesis is completely feasible, has great efficacy, safety and helps making decision on the fate of pregnancy.
       
  • Copeptin in Pregnancy Induced Hypertension and Pre-eclamptic Egyptian
           Women: Relation with CD62p; A Case Control Study

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 2Ola Sayed Mohamed, Noha Abdel-Rahman Eldesoky, Naglaa Feisal Younis, Ahmed Abdel-Aziz El-MandouryBackground: Copeptin, a protein co-secreted with vasopressin, was found to be linked with various diseases; however, its role in pregnancy induced Hypertension (PIH) and pre-eclampsia (PE) is still unclear and up to our knowledge, this is the first time to investigate its concomitant usage together with CD62P, an established marker of platelet activity, for the early diagnosis of PE. Objective: To investigate serum copeptin level in PIH and PE and to study the efficacy of dual usage of serum copeptin and CD62P in early diagnosis of PE. Methods: This study was conducted on seventy five females in the third pregnancy trimester divided into three groups: 15 normal pregnant women, 30 pregnant women with PIH and 30 with PE. Serum copeptin and CD62P were measured by ELISA. Complete blood picture, Platelet count, prothrthrombin time and prothrombin concentration were measured and albumin in urine was detected by dip stick method. Results: serum levels of copeptin and CD62P were significantly higher in PE group compared to PIH and control groups at (p≤0.01). The diagnostic performance of copeptin serum level showed specificity and sensitivity of 100% and 73.3% respectively. Moreover, dual assessment of serum copeptin and CD62P together revealed enhanced specificity and sensitivity of 100% and 96.7% respectively for discriminating PE from PIH patients. Conclusion: Serum copeptin level could be used as an important biomarker for the early diagnosis of pre-eclampia. Moreover, the involvement of copeptin and CD62P in the diagnosis of PE provides a more valuable diagnostic tool than single-marker measurement.
       
  • Knowledge of Obstetric Danger Signs among Pregnant Women Attending
           Antenatal Care Clinic at Health Facilities within Bureti Sub-County of
           Kericho County, Kenya

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 1Omari K. Phanice, Masimba O. ZacharyKnowledge of obstetric danger signs is the first step towards seeking appropriate obstetric care. Although women’s knowledge of obstetric danger signs is essential in the reduction of maternal and child mortality, little is known about the level of maternal knowledge of the obstetric danger signs and its associated factors among women in the rural Kenya. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the level of knowledge of obstetric danger signs and associated factors among pregnant women attending antenatal care clinics in Bureti Sub-County of Kericho County, Kenya. A facility based, cross-sectional study was carried out from November 2014 to January 2015 among pregnant women attending health facilities within Bureti Sub-County. An exit interview was conducted using a semi-structured questionnaire that had been pre-tested. Collected data was analyzed using SPSS (v16). Descriptive data was summarized using frequencies and percentages whereas Chi squared test was used to determine association between socio-demographic factors and knowledge of obstetric danger signs. All tests were 2 sided and considered statistically significant at p

Active management of the third stage of labor (AMTSL) compared with passive management has significantly reduced the incidence of post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) in health facilities. Thus the International Federation of Gynecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) and International Conference of Midwives (ICM) have adopted AMTSL as a standard protocol in maternal care. However, the knowledge and application of this protocol of management at primary health facilities need to be evaluated and hence this study. A descriptive cross-sectional interviewer-questionnaire-based survey was conducted among 116 non physician skilled birth attendants at government primary health centers in Calabar Municipal. Sixty-seven (57.8%) of the participants had satisfactory knowledge about AMTSL, while 49(42.2%) had low knowledge. Seventy-two (62.1%) of them practiced AMTSL but only 20.4% does it correctly and consistently. Major factors affecting the practice of AMTSL were inadequate knowledge, an inadequate number of trained midwives and non-availability of uterotonics drugs at the health facilities. There was statistical significant relationship between being knowledgeable and correct practice of AMTLS (calculated x2=17.9; tabulated x2=5.99; p
       
  • Post Caesarean Section Wound Infection and Microbiological Pattern at the
           University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, Southern Nigeria

    • Abstract: Publication year: 2018Source: Research in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Volume 6, Number 1Khadijah Olatayo Hassan, Justina Omoikhefe AlegbeleyeBackground: Caesarean section is the commonest surgery done in modern obstetric practice. As safe as this procedure may be, it is associated with varying degree of morbidities and sometimes mortality including post-operative wound infection. Wound infection is a very important cause of physical and psychological stress leading to prolonged hospital stay. Objectives: The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of post caesarean section wound infection, the common microbiological agents and the antibiotic sensitivity of the causative organisms at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital. Material and Methods: This was a prospective cross sectional study of 88 women with wound infection following caesarean sections at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital. Swabs were obtained from infected wounds over a period of 24 months. A structured Proforma designed for this purpose was used to obtain socio-demographic information and risk factors. Data collected was entered into a spread-sheet. Statistical analysis of results was done using SPSS 20.0 for windows® statistical software. Chi-square test was used to explore proportional relationship between groups. The level of statistical significance was set at P value
