Transverse Lie In Children
Unstable position.: Fetuses tend to have longitudinal lies in pregnancy - be they cephalic or breech. Transverse lies are less common and involve the fetus with its spine axis perpendicular to the mother's spine axis (head to right or left, spine up or down). If persistent, transverse lies need cesarean section for delivery, unless external cephalic version [with epidural and terbutaline under real-time u/s] works. ...Read more
I have a transverse lie at 35 weeks, and the baby won't move with exercises that my midwife has recommended. Your thoughts?
Version: If malpresentation persists at 37 weeks, an external version may be attempted where the provider places hands on the abdomen and attempts to guide the baby into the proper position. There can be complications, so this should be done in a hospital with fetal monitoring and the ability to perform a csection if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What kind of incision for delivery of singleton in transverse lie with anterior placenta previa? Will low transverse cut risk hemorrhage/uterine tear?
Hyst'omy MANDATED: hello Annie-_777 I am not an OB GYN but I have had a lot of experience which tells me that a lower abdominal incision (Pfannen-Stiel) is a better incision in almost all situations. This situation of a transverse lie and an anterior placenta praevia is a very hazardous situation because you need the baby out and the cord clamped within seconds of opening the uterus so choose a very skilled surgeon. ...Read more

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that. Kids can absorb it through their skin and it can then affect them as if they ingested it. I would use a lower potency steroid on a kid under 12, although there are occasions when a stronger one is needed - close monitoring is then needed as well ...Read more
Depends: Phoslyra is used to help reduce phosphate levels in end stage renal disease. If your child has renal disease and is working with a specialist this may be considered in the treatment plan. I would review your concerns with the MD who recommended the medication. http://www.drugs.com/pro/phoslyra.html ...Read more
Not Recommended: Greetings. I would not recommend the use of Halonate on a child if it was not prescribed by a Dermatologist. Because it is categorized as a "super high potency" topical steriod, it can have serious side effects when used incorrectly. High potency creams and ointments can be asorbed easily through the skin and cause malfunction to certain organs. Best regards. ...Read more
Specialist decision: Triesence is an injectable steroid into your eye to treat inflammation when steroid eye drops are not helpful. Use on a child would need to be monitored closely and be administered by an eye specialist with experience using this medication. It is not something I typically see in my practice so I suspect your child has a unique health challenge. Good luck! http://www.drugs.com/triesence.html ...Read more
