Gynaecology & obstetrics clinical principles for final MBBS students LSCS What is the best management option for an occipito posterior in a Elderly primi with an adequate pelvis? LSCS Patient with a previous LSCS and an adequate pelvis ? LSCS Young primi with no other complications and a borderline pelvis (non engaged head)-Trial of labour while providing good contractions What is the best management option for a patient with a major degree placenta praevia who is admitted with mild bleeding at 37 weeks and the bleeding stops after admission - Immediate LSCS Moderate bleeding at 32 weeks and the bleeding stops after admission. o She is haemodyamicaly stable -Keep under observation in the ward till 37 weeks. o Profuse bleeding at 32 weeks? Immediate LSCS What is the best management option for a patient with abruptioplacenta who is admitted with Mild moderate or profuse bleeding from 32 weeks onwards with a live fetus who may or may not be in labour -Immediate LSCS Moderate bleeding with poor haemodynamic state or profuse bleeding with a dead fetusimmediate LSCS Moderate bleeding with good haemodynamic state with a dead fetus in labour- augment labour with syntocinon What is the management option for a patient with delayed second stage If criteria for instrumental delivery are satisfied ( no part of the head should be palpable abdominally, the presentation and the position should be suitable, the pelvis should be adequate ) an instrument is applied. Vacuum is contraindicated for face presentation, prematurity. Wrigleys forceps is preferred to vaccum for fetal distress because it is faster. Wrigle’s forceps are contraindicated for OP position Kielland's forceps are indicated only for op position and deep transverse arrest. LSCS is the only option if the presentation is breech. Further observation or syntocinon is contraindicated. Best management option for primary dysfunctional labour If no CPD, malpresentation or malposition,fetal distress do ARM and start syntocinon and continuous fetal monitoring(if available) and observe for for two hours. If above are present- do LSCS Secondary arrest- Always LSCS What is the best management for a patient with past LSCS Uncomplicated LSCS for a non recurrent indication, <35 years, Dr.Eranthi Samarakoon- Dept of Gyn & Obs. Faculty of Medicine, University of Peradeniya
No secondary subfertility, P1 alive and healthy, Present pregnancy singleton, Uncomplicated, No malpresentations or malpositions, Fetal weight < than 3. 5 kg, Pelvis adequate, Spontaneous onset of labour at 40 weeks →Do Trial of scar LSCS scars do not rupture before the onset of labour. Syntocinon is contraindicated for a scarred uterus. Therefore induction and augmentation is contraindicatd. USCS scars rupture in pregnancy. LSCS is done at 37 weeks. Earliest sign of scar dehiscence is fetal distress. LSCS is mandatory in 1. Brow 2. Mento posterior face 3. Shoulder presentation transverse lie. Hand prolapse 4. Previous USCS,Full thickness myomectomy scar.past LSCS with a T extension, repair of a ruptured uterus 5. Prolonged 1st stage due to secondary arrest 6. Prolonged 1st and 2nd stage in breech, 7. Footling breech, breech with extended neck 8. Placenta praevia 9. Prolonged 2nd stage if conditions for instrumental delivery are not satisfied Best management option for grade 1 and 2 heart disease Outpatient antenatal and cardiology care Normal delivery in a tertiary care unit Best management option for grade 3 and 4 heart disease Admit LSCS at 37 - 38 weeks after optimizing the cardiac condition Heart failure is most likely to occur soon after delivery Best contraceptive option is condoms LRT is done after the second delivery The best time for LRT is 6 weeks after delivery In impending eclampsia and eclampsia Emergency treatment is IV MgSO4 Best management option is immediate delivery after cross matching blood and estimating the coagulation profile, usually by LSCS Dr.Eranthi Samarakoon- Dept of Gyn & Obs. Faculty of Medicine, University of Peradeniya
If the fetus is dead delivery may be delayed in the absence of abruption if the eclampsia improves In Post partum haemorrhage The best way to determine the cause is to estimate the consistency of the uterus by abdominal palpation If the uterus is hard _ traumatic If the uterus is soft- atonic The best way to treat traumatic haemorrhage is to explore the genital tract for tears and suture in the labour room in any hospital The best way to treat atonic haemorrhage is to give IV oxytocics if the placenta is completely expelled Vaginal delivery is allowed in a breech presentation In a fertile young patient(< than 35 years ) who is greate than 5' in hght Without any obstetric complications (PIH. Diabetes e. t.c.) Estimated fetal weight <than 3.5 kg Breech well engaged at term Pelvis adequate on clinical pelvic assessment In the absence of an extended neck Who goes into spontaneous onset of labour by 40 weeks In the absence of footling breech Induction of labour is contraindicated. Syntocinon is contraindicated for induction and augmentation GYNAECOLOGY CLINICAL PRINCIPLES Ureteric damage and uretero vaginal fistula cannot occur after vaginal hysterectomy.
