  • Hernia uterine inguinale with endometriosis in adult Mayer Rokintasky
           Kuster Hauser syndrome
    • Authors: R Padmasri, Rupa S Iyengar
      Abstract:  A young 25 year old woman presented with primary infertility and was found to have a big left inguinal mass with a blind vagina. Based on the findings of magnetic resonance imaging, a history of probable primary amenorrhea and absence of cervix on clinical examination she was diagnosed as MRKH with inguinal herniation of uterus and adnexae. Operative findings showed bilateral grossly distorted inguinal masses with evidence of endometriosis. Postoperative pathology findings demonstrated endometriosis.

  • The mermaid syndrome (sirenomelia) : a rare case report
    • Authors: Malay Sarkar, Dibyendu Roy, Jaydeb Mandal, Mita Halder, Raj Mohon Ghosh
      Abstract: Mermaid syndrome is a very rare fatal congenital anomaly characterized by fusion and atrophy of lower limbs giving an appearance of human head and upper body with tail of a fish. Incidence of the condition is 1 in nearly 100,000 pregnancies with unknown aetiology. Here we present a case of mermaid syndrome which was a live born and delivered vaginally at term of third gravida tribal women of lower socio-economic status. We examined the baby clinically and found caudal dysgenesis having fusion of lower limbs, single leg with one foot and three toes. There were no anus and external genitalia. We report such a case due to its rarity and term live birth.

  • Effect of a female labour companion and of educating her regarding support
           during labour on perinatal and labour outcomes
    • Authors: H M Senanayake, U A B P Somawardana, M Samarasinghe
      Abstract: Objectives: To study the effect of the presence of a labour companion from the mother’s social network and the effect of giving to the companion an education regarding support to the parturient. Design: This was a comparative trial in a University Obstetric Unit. Sixty women were randomly distributed in two groups who were allowed female companions of their choice, one where the labour companion was given an education (A) and a second where the companion was not given such an education (B). Group C comprised of 30 women who did not have a companion as routinely practiced in our hospital. Perception of control over self during labour was assessed using the validated version of the Labour Agentry Scale (LAS-10) and perinatal events were recorded. Anova test and respective 95% confidence interval were used in statistical analyses. Results: Maternal satisfaction was significantly higher in the group A (Group A: mean = 56.10, Group B = 48.40, Group C = 45.93; p<0.05) and the number of breastfeeds in the first 12 hours in group B (A: mean = 5.8; SD = 1.45 B: 6.03, 1.09; C 5.0, 1.2, p<0.05). There was a favourable trend in the need for augmentation of labour, with the following numbers not requiring such intervention: A = 10 (33.3%); B = 13 (43.3%); C = 9 (30%). No difference was demonstrated in the use of analgesics, mode of delivery or presence of meconium staining of liquor.Conclusions: A female labour companion of the mother’s choice has a positive effect on the mother's experience of labour and perinatal events, irrespective of the companion receiving an education.

  • Actim™PROM, AmniSure®, and ROM +plus®: Rupture of membrane
           kits tested on amniotic fluid from women at C-section: a comparative study
           
    • Authors: H M Senanayake
      Abstract: Objectives: To confirm three point of care commercial tests for rupture of membranes consistently and accurately detect amniotic fluids from pregnant women, and they are practical and easy to use. Methods: Samples of fresh amniotic fluid were collected in a syringe taken at time of C section and run on kits (Actim™PROM, AmniSure®, and ROM +plus®) from three commercially available point of care rupture of membrane tests. Samples were sent to an independent laboratory for ELISA analysis of these amniotic fluid proteins (insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP-1) and alpha-Fetal protein (AFP). Test results of known amniotic fluid on Actim™PROM, AmniSure®, and ROM +plus®, along with ease of use of comments. False negatives were used to determine accuracy of tests. Results: Correct results were obtained in 96.8%, 95.8%, and 98.9% respectively for Actim™PROM, AmniSure®, and ROM +plus®. Users reported ROM +plus® was easiest to use. Conclusions: ROM +plus®. provided the least amount of false negative testing on known samples of amniotic fluid. ROM +plus® was considered most simple and easiest to use and detects two different amniotic fluid proteins while the other tests detect one protein.
