Current Practice and Knowledge in Aneuploidy Screening: A Nation-wide Survey

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.108
Synopsis: 
Aneuploidy risk is present in all pregnancies, however many women in Jamaica are not screened. This may be due to concerns of the patient or physician. Increase in screening may allow for early management and preparation for abnormalities.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the current approach and knowledge of aneuploidy screening among obstetricians and gynaecologists in Jamaica.

Methods: A questionnaire of primarily multiple-choice questions was sent by mail or hand-delivered to obstetricians and gynecologists across the country. The questions concerned demographics, knowledge of screening and diagnostic tests available and test selection.

A Randomized Comparison of Rectal Misoprostol with Syntometrine on Blood loss in the Third Stage of Labour

Issue: 
Pages: 
201–6
Synopsis: 
Rectal misoprostol in appropriately selected patients results in comparable blood loss at delivery as compared to standard therapy and may be a reasonable alternative for the active management of the third stage of labour in patients delivered outside of a hospital setting.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: a) To compare the clinical effect of rectal misoprostol with intramuscular syntometrine in reducing blood loss in the third stage of labour, b) to determine the severity and incidence of side effects of both drugs and c) to measure blood loss, patient tolerance and acceptance of rectal misoprostol.

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy versus Vaginal Hysterectomy at the University Hospital of the West Indies: A 5-year Retrospective Study

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.275
Pages: 
865–9
Synopsis: 
There were no significant differences between the total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and vaginal hysterectomy (VH) groups in terms of intraoperative and postoperative complications. However, TLH was associated with significantly longer operative time and a trend toward a shorter hospital stay than VH.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To compare the outcomes of total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH), a relatively new procedure, with vaginal hysterectomy (VH), a well-established procedure, in a university teaching hospital.

Anticardiolipin Antibodies and Lupus Anticoagulants among Women Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.224
Pages: 
789–94
Synopsis: 
Approximately 8% of the infertile women seeking in vitro fertilization in Jamaica were anticardiolipin antibody and/or lupus anticoagulant positive. The presence of these antibodies did not affect the fertilization rate, pregnancy rate, nor did it demonstrate an increased risk for cycle cancellation or the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  The aims of this study were to evaluate the effect of anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) and lupus anticoagulant (LA) on the outcome of the in vitro ferlitization (IVF) cycles and to determine the prevalence of these antibodies in infertile women seeking IVF in Jamaica.
