My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read more

I had scan on 8th mth & my fetus AC different 5 wks with gestation age, will this cause Pulmonary Atresia or any other problem? What cause this?

5 weeks big/small: It matters whether the AC is measuring bigger or smaller than the rest of the measurements. My first thought would be if it were bigger that you may have gestational diabetes? Consider rephrasing with this part in the question. ...Read more

I have no norm. Heart risk factor but have had 2 scads causing mi. How does breath holding & straining incr the risk of another mi & what is mechanism?

SCAD?: Sorry, i've been a cardiologist (in the usa) for 33 years, but i'm not familiar with the abbreviation "scads" - please clarify. Breath holding and straining are valsalva maneuvers which reduce venous return and cardiac output while raising BP and slowing hr - these should not cause mi. If they do, it would have occurred with your next bowel movement anyway. ...Read more

Fetus's tissue testing on D&C (8 weeks and 2nd early MC) showed turners syndrome in the feutus. Future pregnancy implications of this? Any precautions

Generally no: In general, in each subsequent pregnancy, the chance of having another pregnancy affected by Turner syndrome would not be increased given that it occurs due to a random error in the splitting of chromosomes during the creation of sperm usually, though sometimes also the egg. Unlikely to recur in a first time case. ...Read more

25 yr old F (not overweight) with chronic URQ pain for 2+ yrs. No stones but HIDA showed 23 % function. Unsure if removal is worth the risks, SOD? Greatly appreciate prof. opinions and likelihood of Sphincter of Oddi problems & seriousness of it.

25 yr old F (not overweight) with chronic URQ pain for 2+ yrs. No stones but HIDA showed 23 % function. Unsure if removal is worth the risks, SOD? Greatly appreciate prof. opinions and likelihood of Sphincter of Oddi problems & seriousness of it.

Not very serious: The main problem with sphincter of oddi dysfunction is that it is an annoying pain that is intermittent and gets worse after eating. The treatment includes lifestyle changes (low fat diet), vasodilators like nifedipine, non opioid analgesics. Gastroenterologists can inject botox or make a cut at the sphincter of oddi and that works in more than 70% of the cases. ...Read more
