New research shows which bacterium in BV is the likely cause of premature birth, when not timely and appropriately treated.
The bacterium G. vaginalis has been shown to be a significant bacterium in bacterial vaginosis, and a likely cause of premature birth, if not properly treated. Clindamycin has a better clinical efficacy than Metronidazole in cases of recurrent BV, and can be a better treatment when G. vaginalis is involved.
For two days, physicians fail to diagnose and treat premature rupture of membranes, and twin boys are born with permanent disabilities, including cerebral palsy
Despite leaking amniotic fluid for two days and having risk factors for premature rupture of the membranes, physicians fail to diagnose and treat the condition, and a woman's babies are born with permanent disabilities.
Large settlements offered to boys who suffered cerebral palsy as a result of medical staff failing to notice severe complications during labor.
Two boys were offered large settlements to cover the lifelong care that their cerebral palsy requires. The boys developed cerebral palsy as a result of brain damage that occurred when medical staff failed to notice severe complications during labor. One medical team failed to notice cord compression and severe oxygen deprivation, another failed to notice placental abruption and fluctuating fetal heart.
Research suggests pathogenic strains of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) are an under-recognized cause of urinary tract infections.
GBS is a significant cause of UTI in pregnant women. GBS and UTIs can have severe consequences for the newborn, such as cerebral palsy, infection, preterm birth, premature rupture of the membranes (PROM) and preterm PROM, placental abruption and fetal distress.
A new test can detect potentially deadly Group B Strep in pregnant women almost 42 hours faster than the previous test.
A new, fast test for GBS could decrease the number of women with missed GBS diagnoses, thereby preventing cerebral palsy, meningitis, sepsis and pneumonia in GBS infected babies. The test also could help prevent antibiotic overuse blood infections in infants.
