Active management of third stage oflabour (AMTSL) plays an immense role in preventing maternal death due PPH. But till dateobstetricians all over the world and the concerned international bodies could not reach to asingle agreement about its universal use. This approach is practiced widely in many centresand there are some specific guidelines regarding its practical use. AMTSL as a prophylacticintervention and is composed of a package of three components or steps: 1) administrationof a uterotonic, preferably oxytocin, immediately after birth of the baby; 2) controlled cordtraction (CCT) to deliver the placenta; and 3) massage of the uterine fundus after the placentais delivered. In 2012, the results of a large WHO-directed, multi-centred clinical trial showedthat the most important AMTSL component was the administration of an uterotonic, theother two steps contributes relatively less in blood loss. But WHO recommends to continueall three steps of AMTSL for management and training of third stage of labour. This article isa brief review of the recent guidelines and evidence based practice of active management ofthe third stage of labour.</p> <p>Bangladesh J Obstet Gynaecol, 2018; Vol. 33(2) : 149-156</p> 2020-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Bangladesh Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJOG/article/view/43555 Catastrophic Maternal Complications of Morbidly Adherent Placenta in Patients with History of Previous Caesarean Delivery 2020-07-20T08:33:17+00:00 Mumtahena Amir mumu9700@gmail.com Salma Rouf mumu9700@gmail.com Saleha Begum Chowdhury mumu9700@gmail.com <p><strong>Objective:</strong>The study is aimed to describe the grave maternal outcomes encountered inpatients having morbidly adherent placenta along with history of previous caesarean section.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>This was a cross-sectional study from September 2014 to August2015.

Primary PPH (which occurs within 24 hours of delivery) hasbeen studied a lot. But data regarding secondary PPH (which occurs 24 hours after deliveryupto to 6 weeks post partum) is sparse. Our aim was to find out the risk factors and maternaloutcome of secondary PPH.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods: </strong>A cross sectional analytic study of 32 cases admitted with secondaryPPH in Gynae and Obstetric department of Rangpur Medical College Hospital during 1 yearstudy period was carried out.</p> <p><strong>Result: </strong>Frequency of secondary PPH was 0.58%. Mean age of the patient was 25.23±2.79years; 22(69%) patients were multi para; 17 (53%) patients had education up to primarylevel. Maximum patients [18 (56%)] were from low socio economic status. Mean time ofpresentation was 13.5±2.78 days after delivery; 14(44%) patients delivered vaginally and18(56%) patients delivered by caesarean section. Most of the vaginal delivery 9 (28%) wereconducted by untrained dai or other family member. Among 32 patients, 31 were referredfrom outside the Hospital. Retained bits of placenta was the leading cause (15,47%) andcaesarean wound dehiscence was the second cause (13,41%); 13 (40%) patients had feveron presentation. All were anemic with mean hemoglobin concentration 7.4±1.4gm and 24(75%) of them required blood transfusion. Four patients was in shock. Antibiotic was givento all patients. DE&amp;C was done in 15(47%) cases and laparotomy followed by total abdominalhysterectomy was done in 12 cases and repair in 1 case. Among 15 patients who underwentsurgical evacuation there was histological evidence of placental tissue in only 6(40%) patients.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>In present study retained bits of placenta and caesarean wound dehiscenceare found as main cause of secondary postpartum hemorrhage So care should be takenduring active management of third stage of labour (AMTSL). Choosing appropriate suturematerial, maintaining personal hygine of patient and sterility of operation theate, usingappropriate antibiotic to combat microbials and last but not list improving skillness of surgeonare the key to reduce the rate of secondary PPH.</p> <p>Bangladesh J Obstet Gynaecol, 2018; Vol. 33(2) : 107-112</p> 2020-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Bangladesh Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJOG/article/view/43562 Carbetocin Versus Oxytocin for Prophylaxis of PPH Used During Caesarean Section: An Open Label Randomized Control Trial 2020-07-20T08:33:31+00:00 MK Nahaer knahaer123@gmail.com AKM Nurunnobi knahaer123@gmail.com SI Talukder knahaer123@gmail.com H Ferdousy knahaer123@gmail.com F Sharmin knahaer123@gmail.com GMR Islam knahaer123@gmail.com R Parvin knahaer123@gmail.com <p><strong>Background</strong><strong>:</strong> Postpartum hemorrhage is the leading cause of maternal mortality; uterineatony is the most important cause. Uterotonics are used to prevent uterine atony. Carbetocin,a synthetic anallague of oxytocin seems to be an effective and safe new drug for preventionof PPH after caesarean</p> <p><strong>The Aim of Study:</strong>To find out the efficacy and safety of carbetocin over oxytocin for theprevention of PPH during caesarean section.Patients and Methods: A randomized-controlled trial was conducted in the Dept. of Obs &amp;Gyane, Rangpur Medical College and Hospital, Rangpur, Bangladesh over a period of twelvemonths from June 2016 to June 2017. One hundred admitted patients undergoing cesareansection at term were randomized into two groups receiving either 10 IU oxytocin or 100 μgcarbetocin after caesarean section. Outcome measures such as primary PPH, massiveblood loss, need for additional uterotonic drug, additional blood transfusion as well as adverseeffects were all documented.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: Massive blood loss occurred in 6% patients, blood transfusion needed in 20% patientsand additional uterotonic needed for 36% patients in Oxytocin group but in Carbetocin groupno massive blood lossoccurred, only 2%patients needed immediate blood transfusion and4% patients were required additional uterotonics. There were no major adverse effectsobserved in both the groups. No patients had developed PPH in carbetocin group.

Postpartum haemorrhage is the leading cause ofmaternal mortality worldwide. Around 67–80% of cases are caused by uterine atony.Preventive measures include prophylactic drugs use to aid uterine contraction after delivery,thus avoiding severe blood loss and reducing maternal morbidity and mortality. Carbetocin asynthetic analogue of oxytocin is currently indicated for prevention of uterine atony afterdelivery by caesarean section in spinal or epidural anaesthesia.</p> <p><strong>The Aim of Study: </strong>To see the efficacy and safety of Carbetocin for the prophylaxis of PPHduring caesarean section.Patients and Methods: An open label single arm clinical trial was conducted in the BagerhatSadar Hospital, Bangladesh over a period of six months from May 2017 to October 2017.Ninety patients who had got admitted in Bagerhat Sadar Hospital, undergoing cesareansection at term were selected. Each patient obtained a single dose of 100 microgramcarbetocin intravenously during cesarean section, immediately after the delivery of the babyand prior to the delivery of the placenta. Outcome measures such as primary PPH, bloodloss was observed and measured by weighing sanitary napkin observed for six hours. Needfor additional uterotonic drug, additional blood transfusion as well as adverse effects were alldocumented.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Massive blood loss occurred only in 3.3% patients. Among the study population96.7% patients did not need any additional uterotonics. No patient had developed fever,arrhythmia, pulmonary edema, tremor, abdominal pain and pruritus. Only 2.2% had nausea,only 3.3% had hypotention, only 3.3% had vomiting and only 2.2% had headache which wasnot statistically significant.

Tranexamic acid (TXA), anantifibrinolytic agent, has therefore been investigated as a potentially useful complement toprevention and treatment of PPH. It has been proved to reduce blood loss in elective surgery,bleeding in trauma patients, and menstrual blood loss.</p> <p><strong>Aims: </strong>To evaluate the effectiveness of TXA in reducing blood loss given just immediatelyafter delivery of baby in women undergoing cesarean section.</p> <p><strong>Methods</strong>: This was a prospective, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled studyconducted in the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics unit of IBN SINA Medical CollegeDhaka, Bangladesh from June 2016 to May 2017. Participants were randomly assigned toTXA group or group A (n=60) and placebo group or group B (n=60). Randomization wasdone by residents using computer generated random numbers. Group A received 1 gram(10ml) of intravenous bolus dose of TXA just after delivery of the baby, Group B received 10ml of sterile distilled water for injection intravenously at the same time. Statistical analysishas been done by SPSS.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The subjective characteristics in the two groups were similar with respect to theirage, BMI, gestational age and gravidity. The duration of surgery was 40-50 minutes. Therewas no statistically significant difference in the heart rates (p&gt;0.05) and blood pressuresbetween the two groups, after 2 hours of delivery. Blood losses from both placental deliveriesto the end of cesarean section and from end of CS to 2 hours postpartum were significantlylower in the study group (p&lt;0.05). Change in hemoglobin concentration in study group wasalso significantly less than in the control group. Total amount of oxytocin required wassignificantly less in TXA group (p&lt;0.05) also the number of women requiring other oxytocics(inj. Methyl ergometrine, inj carboprost and tab misoprostol per rectally) was significantlyless in TXA group (p&lt; 0.05). The amount of intra-operative fluid required were significantlyless in TXA group (p&lt;0.005); however post – operative fluid requirement and minor sideeffects in the form of nausea and vomiting were similar in both the groups.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Tranexamic acid can effectively reduce blood loss in patients undergoing LSCSand its use was not associated with any side effects and or complications like thrombosis.The adoption of WHO guidelines for using uterotonic agents and prophylactically administeringTXA may significantly reduce the number of PPH incidents.</p> <p>Bangladesh J Obstet Gynaecol, 2018; Vol. 33(2) : 125-130</p> 2020-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Bangladesh Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/BJOG/article/view/43565 Risk Profiles Associated with Endometriosis among Infertile Women 2020-07-20T08:33:37+00:00 Jaglul Haider Khan jaglul_bd@yahoo.com Saifur Rahman jaglul_bd@yahoo.com Chowdhury Taslima Nasreen jaglul_bd@yahoo.com Jahangir Alam jaglul_bd@yahoo.com Pervin Fatema jaglul_bd@yahoo.com <p><strong>Background: </strong>Endometriosis is a common gynaecological disorder which is found in about5% of women and in 30% of infertile women.
