    Bioelectrical impedance analysis; a new method to evaluate lymphoedema, fluid status, and tissue damage after gynaecological surgery - A systematic review2018Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 228, s. 111-119Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this descriptive review is to summarise the current knowledge of non-invasive bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) used with gynaecological surgical patients in regard to postoperative development of lymphoedema and determination of perioperative fluid balance, and as a prognostic factor in cancer mortality and a predictor of postoperative complications. The databases PubMed, MEDLINE, Scopus Web of Science, the Cochrane Library, and reference lists of selected articles were searched for relevant articles published during the period January 2008-April 2018. Only papers published in English were retrieved. Thirty-seven articles were evaluated. Where gynaecological studies were lacking, studies with a study population from neighbouring clinical fields were used instead. Studies on the clinical use of BIA with gynaecological surgical patients were divided into three categories: the postoperative development of lower limb lymphoedema (n = 7), perioperative hydration measuring (n = 3), and the BIA parameter phase angle as a prognostic factor in cancer survival and as predictive for postoperative complications (n = 6). Of these 16 studies only three used a pure gynaecological study population. Three different methods of BIA were used in these articles: single frequency-BIA, multifrequency-BIA and bioimpedance spectroscopy. BIA was found to detect lymphoedema with a sensitivity of 73% and a specificity of 84%. Studies indicated that BIA was able to detect lower limb lymphoedema at an early stage even before it became clinically detectable. During postoperative hydration measurements, an increase in extracellular fluid volume and extracellular fluid volume in relation to total body fluid volume, as well as a decrease in phase angle, were associated with higher frequencies of postoperative complications. Moreover, low values for the phase angle have been associated with increased mortality in cancer patients. However, the number of studies in this field was limited. From our review, BIA seems to be a useful tool for use in the clinical setting of the gynaecological surgical patient. The theoretical approach of using bioelectrical impedance values to measure the fluid distribution in the body compartments offers wide opportunities in the clinical setting. However, so far, all studies have set up cut-off limits within the study population, and reference values for a general population need to be defined. There are also rather few studies on a gynaecological study population. Hence, there is a need for further studies within gynaecological surgery focusing on early detection of lower limb lymphoedema, perioperative fluid balance, and postoperative complications in order to establish the value of BIA in clinical praxis.

    Maternal body mass index and duration of labor2013Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 171, nr 1, s. 49-53Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To evaluate whether the duration of the active phase of labor is associated with maternal body mass index (BMI), in nulliparous women with spontaneous onset of labor. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanStudy design: Historical prospective cohort study including 63,829 nulliparous women with a singleton pregnancy and a spontaneous onset of labor, who delivered between January 1, 1995 and December 31, 2009. Data were collected from the Perinatal Revision South registry, a regional perinatal database in Southern Sweden. Women were categorized into six classes of BMI. Overweight and obese women were compared to normal weight women regarding duration of active labor. Adjustments were made for year of delivery, maternal age and infant birth weight. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanResults: The median duration of labor was significantly longer in obese women (class I obesity (BMI 30-34.9) = 9.1 h, class II obesity (BMI 35-39.9) = 9.2 h and class III obesity (BMI andgt; 40) = 9.8 h) compared to normal-weight women (BMI 18.5-24.9) = 8.8 h (p andlt; 0.001). The risk of labor lasting more than 12 h increased with increasing maternal BMI: OR 1.04(1.01-1.06) (OR per 5-units BMI-increase).The risk of labor lasting more than 12 h or emergency cesarean section within 12 h, compared to vaginal deliveries within 12 h, increased with increasing maternal BMI. Duration of the second stage of labor was significantly shorter in obese women: in class III obesity the median value was 0.45 h compared to normal weight women, 0.55 h (p andlt; 0.001). less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanConclusion: In nulliparous women with a spontaneous onset of labor, duration of the active phase of labor increased significantly with increasing maternal BMI. Once obese women reach the second stage they deliver more quickly than normal weight women, which implies that the risk of prolonged labor is restricted to the first stage of labor. It is clinically important to consider the prolonged first stage of labor in obese women, for example when diagnosing first stage labor arrest, in order to optimize management of this rapidly growing at-risk group of women. Thus, it might be reasonable to adapt the considered upper limit for duration of labor, according to maternal BMI.

    Obstetric outcome of 6346 pregnancies with infants affected by congenital heart defects2006Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 125, nr 2, s. 211-216Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To evaluate whether pregnancies with infants affected by congenital heart defects are associated with adverse obstetric and perinatal outcome. Study design: In a prospective population-based cohort study from Sweden (1992-2001), 6346 singleton pregnancies with infants affected by congenital heart defects were, after suitable adjustments, compared to all delivered women. Results: The prevalence of cardiovascular defects was 9.1 per 1000 births. Among them, mothers of 6346 infants (71%) had information on maternal smoking habits and maternal height and weight in early pregnancy that enabled the calculation of BMI. All cases with known chromosomal abnormalities and/or maternal pre-existing diabetes were excluded. Eighty-four percent (n = 5338) had an isolated cardiovascular defect. Severe types occurred in 21.7% (n = 1378). In the group of pregnancies with infants affected by congenital heart defects as compared to all delivered women, there was an increased risk of the following outcomes (adjusted OR (95%CI)): pre-eclampsia (1.21 (1.06-1.37)), cesarean section (1.91 (1.79-2.03)), instrumental delivery (1.21 (1.10-1.34)), pre-term delivery (2.58 (2.39-2.79)), small-for gestational age (1.96 (1.77-2.16)), meconium aspiration (1.51 (1.28-1.77)), and fetal distress (1.38 (1.17-1.63)). Conclusions: Pregnancies with infants affected by congenital heart defects are associated with several obstetric and neonatal complications. © 2005 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Maternal and fetal factors which affect fetometry: use of in vitro fertilization and birth register data2013Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 170, nr 2, s. 372-376Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Fetometry dating of gestational age is the gold standard in most developed countries but may have some inborn errors. Dating pregnancies after in vitro fertilization can be used for the evaluation of fetometric studies and for studies of variables which may affect them. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanMethods: We compared the actual gestational age of 9543 singleton and 869 twin pregnancies with estimates based on second-trimester fetometry. Mean gestational age, percentage of births classified as preterm, and skewness of the distribution of differences between actual and estimated gestational age were studied. Subanalyses were made of data on singletons for males and females, for infants born to overweight or obese women or to smoking women, for infants judged to be small or large for gestational age, and on twins. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanResults: In the majority of cases, good agreement was found between actual and estimated gestational age but in singletons there was an excess of positive differences resulting in a moderate over-estimate of the rate of preterm births (8%), more marked for females (11%) than for males (6%) and increased for infants born to overweight (7%) or obese (16%) mothers. Singleton infants born small for gestational age also showed an excess of positive differences (3%). These differences were less marked for twins. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanConclusions: In most IVF pregnancies, routine fetometry correctly predicts gestational age but deviations exist which indicate that ultrasound underestimates the age of fetuses that will be born small for gestational age and when the woman is obese. The differences between actual age and estimates based on fetometry seem to be smaller than those between estimates based on last menstrual period and fetometry.

    Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis during use of Combined Hormonal Contraception2015Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 193Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: Incidence and disease course of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is influenced by sex steroids and several studies have shown less disease activity during high estrogen states. We have earlier shown variation in symptom experience related to estrogen/progestogen phase in women using combined hormonal contraceptives (CHC) in a small sample. The aim of this study was confirm these results in a larger sample.

    Design: Self-assessment of symptoms of MS in relation to CHC cycle or menstrual cycle. Sample: Twenty-three female MS patients using CHC. Control groups were female MS patients without hormonal contraception and healthy women with CHC and without hormonal contraception.

    Methods: All women filled out a symptom diary based on a validated instrument for cyclical symptoms.

    Main Outcome measures: Mean scores for high and low estrogen/progestogen phases were compared.

    Results: The women with MS using combined hormonal contraceptives scored all symptoms higher during the pill-free week than during the CHC-phase and the scores for vertigo, weakness, urinary symptoms and stiffness were significantly higher during the seven days without CHC (p < 0.05). No such relation was found in the group of women with MS not using any hormonal contraception. Women without MS did not report any symptoms at all.

    Conclusion: Women with MS report more pronounced symptoms during the lowestrogen/ progestogen phase of CHC use. Future studies should investigate, with a prospective, controlled design, which effects continuous-use regimens of CHC have in women with MS.

    Birth characteristics of women with Marfan syndrome, obstetric and neonatal outcomes of their pregnancies-A nationwide cohort and case-control study2017Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 215, s. 106-111Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: The aim was to investigate birth characteristics, obstetric and neonatal outcomes of the first childbirth in women with Marfan syndrome by use of Swedish national registers since pregnancy-related outcomes in women with Marfan syndrome have only been sparsely investigated. Study design: In this national population-based cohort study and matched case-control study of Swedish women born 1973-1993, women with Marfan syndrome (n =273) were compared to women without the condition (n = 1 017 265). The study population was followed until 2013. A total of 364 553 mother -firstborn-offspring pairs were analyzed. Sixty-one women with Marfan syndrome became mothers. Women with Marfan syndrome were also compared to 543 healthy controls. Results: Women with Marfan syndrome were more often born preterm (p amp;lt; 0.001), small-for-gestational age (p amp;lt; 0.001), and delivered by cesarean section (p = 0.001). Women with Marfan syndrome had no increased risk of giving birth by cesarean section (p = 0.079). No increased neonatal risks in their children were found. Women with Marfan syndrome were less likely to give birth than those without (p amp;lt; 0.001). There were no maternal deaths. Conclusions: Women with Marfan syndrome were more likely to be born preterm, SGA and by cesarean section. These increased risks of preterm birth and SGA babies were not found in connection with their own first childbirth. Pregnancies with known fetal Marfan syndrome have to be carefully monitored. The results are important for obstetricians giving preconception counseling and treating women with Marfan syndrome. Further studies are needed to evaluate risks during pregnancy and long-term effects of pregnancy on the cardiovascular status of women with Marfan syndrome. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V.

    Lymphedema after treatment for endometrial cancer - A review of prevalence and risk factors2017Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 211, s. 112-121Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Lymphedema is one of the least studied complications of cancer treatment and a chronic condition with a substantial impact on health-related quality of life (HQoL). Lymphedema of the legs (LLL) constitutes a common adverse side effect of lymphadenectomy LA in gynecologic cancer treatment. Primary treatment of endometrial cancer (EC) comprises hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy is recommended in prognostic high risk groups of EC. This review summarizes the published literature concerning the prevalence of LLL after treatment for EC, methods used for measuring LLL, risk factors and HQoL impact. The main findings are that the reported prevalence of LLL varies significantly between 0% and 50%. This is due to a lack of a generally accepted standardization of terminology in assessment of lymphedema. The studies use different methods to assess and grade lymphedema and often the methodology used for determining LLL is poorly described and lacks baseline measurement. Lymphadenectomy, number of lymph nodes removed, and radiation therapy seems to increase the risk for LLL. All studies dealing with HQoL show that women with LLL have impaired HQoL. The level of evidence in the published studies is generally low. Consequently it is difficult to make clear-cut conclusions about the true prevalence or determination of risk factors. More prospective longitudinal or randomized trials with LLL as the primary outcome are necessary before conclusions can be drawn regarding prevalence of LLL and risk factor determination in EC. An internationally accepted standardization for terminology and methodology in lymphedema in research is needed. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Factors associated with postoperative recovery after laparoscopic and abdominal hysterectomy2008Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 140, nr 1, s. 108-113Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the day-by-day recovery of general wellbeing was faster in women undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy than in total abdominal hysterectomy and to analyse the association between stress coping and sick-leave and the day-by-day recovery measured as general wellbeing.

    STUDY DESIGN: A randomised multicentre trial conducted in five hospitals in the South East of Sweden. Hundred and twenty-five women scheduled for hysterectomy for benign conditions were enrolled in the study and 117 women completed the study. Fifty-five women were randomised to abdominal hysterectomy and 62 to laparoscopic hysterectomy. Day-by-day recovery of general wellbeing was measured by a visual analogue scale 1 week preoperatively, 35 days postoperatively, and during 1 week 6 months postoperatively. Stress-coping capability was measured preoperatively using a specific psychometric measurement. Sick-leave was granted with an initial period of 14 days and prolonged on patient demand with 7 days periods. Effects of operating method and stress-coping ability on the day-by-day recovery adjusted for postoperative complications and analgesics were analysed by means of analysis of variance for repeated measurements.

    RESULTS: No significant difference was found in the day-by-day recovery of the general wellbeing between the operating methods. Stress-coping ability did significantly influence the day-by-day recovery of general wellbeing. Duration of sick-leave was associated with the occurrence of postoperative complications but not with stress-coping ability.

    CONCLUSIONS: The day-by-day recovery of general wellbeing is not faster in laparoscopic hysterectomy than in abdominal hysterectomy. Women with high stress-coping abilities have a better outcome in general wellbeing than women with low stress-coping capacity. Identification of women with low stress-coping abilities and prevention of complications might be of benefit for improving postoperative wellbeing.

    Internal anal sphincter injury in the immediate postpartum period; Prevalence, risk factors and diagnostic methods in the Swedish perineal laceration registry2020Inngår i: European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology, ISSN 0301-2115, E-ISSN 1872-7654, Vol. 245, s. 1-6Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Risk factors for obstetric external anal sphincter injury are well known. Maternal and obstetric risk factors for internal anal sphincter injury are not extensively studied.

    The rationale of this study was to evaluate the proportion of internal anal sphincter injury in women with external anal sphincter injury, diagnosed immediately after delivery.

    This study will assess whether there are additional risks for obstetric internal anal sphincter injury.

    Objectives

    The primary aim was to assess the proportion of internal anal sphincter injury immediately in women with an external sphincter injury and to evaluate maternal and obstetric risk factors for internal anal sphincter injury in women with an external anal sphincter injury only.

    A secondary aim was to relate the diagnostic methods used for obstetric perineal lacerations to the presence of an internal anal sphincter injury.

    Study Design

    A registry study with data from the Swedish Perineal Laceration Registry 2014–2018.

    From the registry, the maternal and obstetric characteristics of 3,333 primiparous women with isolated external (N = 2,236) versus both external and internal (N = 1,097) anal sphincter injuries were studied, as were the methods used for examining the obstetric anal sphincter injuries.

    Results

    In 32.9 % (1,097/3,333) of primiparous women with an external anal sphincter injury, an internal anal sphincter injury was diagnosed immediately after delivery. A perineal palpatory thickness of less than 10 mm was a diagnostic sign for internal sphincter injury. Well-known risk factors associated with obstetric anal sphincter injuries could not be confirmed as independent risk factors for internal sphincter injury. When the infant is born with an arm beside the head, there is an almost two-fold increased risk for internal sphincter injury.

    Conclusions

    Our main finding is that 32.9 % of women with external anal sphincter injury also have an internal anal sphincter injury. A palpable perineal thickness of less than 10 mm, a degree 4-laceration and an infant born with a hand by the head increases the risk of internal sphincter injury and should be a clinical warning sign.

    Abstract [en]

    Objective

    In obstetrical and gynaecological healthcare, patients often find themselves in a vulnerable position. Sensitive issues such as sexual and reproductive health are addressed and certain procedures can be experienced as abusive. According to research a lifetime prevalence of abuse in healthcare (AHC) can be assumed for 13–28% of female patients in the Nordic countries. In the present study we analyse the content of ethical documents for healthcare professionals within obstetrics and gynaecology in Sweden, in order to find out to what extent ethicalguidelines consider issues that have shown to be related to the occurrence of AHC.

    Study design

    We searched the literature to find empirical data on AHC. Guidelines for nurses, midwives and physicians were selected. After developing an analytical framework based on the empirical data the content of the ethicalguidelines was analysed.

    Results

    The various ethicalguidelines for staff working within obstetrics and gynaecology differ distinctively from each other regarding their content of issues that are related to AHC. Issues that were mostly disregarded were: considering the patient's perspective and the patients’ possible experience of violence, considering power imbalances within healthcare, sexual misconduct, how to deal with other professional's ethical misconduct and how professionals relate to each other. We found the ethicalguidelines of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and of the International Confederation of Midwives to be those which contained most of the issues that have empirically shown to be important in regard to AHC.

    Conclusion

    While staff members from different professions may share responsibility for the same patient, their ethicalguidelines vary considerably. To become a possible resource for prevention of AHC, we suggest that ethicalguidelines in healthcare should be revised following empirical research on ethical conduct. As ethicalguidelines cannot be effective by their existence only, we would like to initiate a discussion on the function and use of ethicalguidelines in general and regarding AHC in particular. Being aware that ethicalguidelines are only a part of ethics in healthcare, however, we envision a broader approach to the aim of preventing AHC, where research is encouraged on how a virtue ethics approach could be applied.
