Artificially induced UTERINE CONTRACTION. Generally, LABOR, OBSTETRIC is induced with the intent to cause delivery of the fetus and termination of pregnancy.
A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Period from the onset of true OBSTETRIC LABOR to the complete dilatation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Drugs that stimulate contraction of the myometrium. They are used to induce LABOR, OBSTETRIC at term, to prevent or control postpartum or postabortion hemorrhage, and to assess fetal status in high risk pregnancies. They may also be used alone or with other drugs to induce abortions (ABORTIFACIENTS). Oxytocics used clinically include the neurohypophyseal hormone OXYTOCIN and certain prostaglandins and ergot alkaloids. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p1157)
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Extraction of the FETUS by means of abdominal HYSTEROTOMY.
A term used to describe pregnancies that exceed the upper limit of a normal gestational period. In humans, a prolonged pregnancy is defined as one that extends beyond 42 weeks (294 days) after the first day of the last menstrual period (MENSTRUATION), or birth with gestational age of 41 weeks or more.
A synthetic analog of natural prostaglandin E1. It produces a dose-related inhibition of gastric acid and pepsin secretion, and enhances mucosal resistance to injury. It is an effective anti-ulcer agent and also has oxytocic properties.
Administration of a soluble dosage form by placement under the tongue.
A hole or break through the wall of the UTERUS, usually made by the placement of an instrument or INTRAUTERINE DEVICES.
Non-steroidal chemical compounds with abortifacient activity.
A scraping, usually of the interior of a cavity or tract, for removal of new growth or other abnormal tissue, or to obtain material for tissue diagnosis. It is performed with a curet (curette), a spoon-shaped instrument designed for that purpose. (From Stedman, 25th ed & Dorland, 27th ed)
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.
The terms, expressions, designations, or symbols used in a particular science, discipline, or specialized subject area.
The insertion of drugs into the vagina to treat local infections, neoplasms, or to induce labor. The dosage forms may include medicated pessaries, irrigation fluids, and suppositories.
Passage of a CATHETER into the URINARY BLADDER or kidney.
An island in the Lesser Antilles, one of the Windward Islands. Its capital is Fort-de-France. It was discovered by Columbus in 1502 and from its settlement in 1635 by the French it passed into and out of Dutch and British hands. It was made a French overseas department in 1946. One account of the name tells of native women on the shore calling "Madinina" as Columbus approached the island. The meaning was never discovered but was entered on early charts as Martinique, influenced by the name of St. Martin. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p734 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p339)
Surgery performed on the urinary tract or its organs and on the male or female genitalia.

Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate promotes hyaluronic acid-induced cervical ripening in rabbits. (1/94)

Hyaluronic acid (HA) stimulates the synthesis of interleukin (IL) 8, while dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEA-S) induces the expression of IL-8 and its receptor in the human cervical fibroblast. This has led us to investigate the effect of DHEA-S on HA-induced cervical ripening. Experiments were performed in pregnant rabbits using vaginal suppositories containing 1 mg HA, 30 mg DHEA-S, 30 mg DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA, 30 mg DHEA-S + 1 mg HA, and 500 microl Witepsol-50 base (control). The effects were evaluated by measuring collagenase, gelatinase and elastase activities, water content, neutrophil infiltration, relative collagen concentration and histological assessment. The activities of collagenase, gelatinase and elastase were significantly increased in rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA (P < 0.009, P < 0.001, P < 0.009 respectively). Water content was markedly increased in rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA treatment (P < 0.05). Neutrophil infiltration was markedly increased, while relative collagen concentration was significantly decreased with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with the DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA approach (P < 0.001, P < 0.002). The histology of cervices treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA showed the density of collagen to be markedly decreased, and collagen fibres irregularly separated. Increased vascularity with massive dilatation of blood vessels was also observed in these rabbits. We conclude that DHEA-S upregulates the HA-induced cervical ripening process.  (+info)

Current trends in cervical ripening and labor induction. (2/94)

Labor is induced in more than 13 percent of deliveries in the United States. Postdate pregnancy is the most common indication. Oxytocin is the drug of choice for labor induction when the cervical examination shows that the cervix is favorable. The use of this agent requires experience and vigilant observation for uterine hyperstimulation, hypertonus or maternal fluid overload. In a patient whose cervix is unfavorable, the use of prostaglandin analogs for cervical ripening markedly enhances the success of inductions. Misoprostol, a prostaglandin E1 analog marketed as a gastrointestinal mucosal protective agent, is safe, efficacious and inexpensive for use in cervical ripening and labor induction. Further studies will better delineate its optimal use. Family physicians need to be familiar with the various methods of cervical ripening and labor induction.  (+info)

Nitric oxide donors stimulate prostaglandin F(2alpha) and inhibit thromboxane B(2) production in the human cervix during the first trimester of pregnancy. (3/94)

Nitric oxide (NO) donors are capable of ripening the human cervix during pregnancy. The purpose of this study was to examine how NO donors may be involved in this process. Cervical biopsies were obtained from pregnant women randomized to receive isosorbide mononitrate (n = 10) or no treatment (n = 10) prior to suction termination. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) were performed on culture supernatant for interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-15, tumour necrosis factor-alpha, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and prostaglandin metabolites. Immunohistochemistry was performed to localize these cytokines, cyclooxygenase (COX)-1, COX-2 and prostaglandin dehydrogenase in cervical tissue and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to identify COX-1 and COX-2 expression. Biopsies treated with the NO donor isosorbide mononitrate (IMN) produced significantly greater amounts of prostaglandin F(2alpha) in culture and lower amounts of thromboxane B(2) than controls (572.8 versus 34.9 pg/ml, P < 0.05; 53.3 pg/ml versus 530.9 pg/ml, P < 0.01 respectively). The release of other prostaglandins and of cytokines was not affected by treatment with NO. Inflammatory mediators were localized to cervical tissue and COX-1 and COX-2 expression was confirmed by RT-PCR. In conclusion, the mechanism of NO donor-induced cervical ripening during pregnancy may be mediated in part via increased prostaglandin F(2alpha) synthesis.  (+info)

Male and female isoenzymes of steroid 5alpha-reductase. (4/94)

There are two steroid 5alpha-reductase isoenzymes, designated type 1 and type 2, in mammals and recent experiments show that each plays a unique physiological role. In this article, the hypothesis is developed that the type 1 gene specifies a female isoenzyme, whereas the type 2 gene specifies a male isoenzyme. This idea results from the following observations. First, mutation of the 5alpha-reductase type 1 gene in mice affects reproduction in females by decreasing fecundity and blocking parturition, but has no effect on reproduction in males. Second, mutation of the 5alpha-reductase type 2 gene in mice and men prevents proper virilization but does not affect development or reproductive function in females. Analyses of these diverse phenotypes indicate that the isoenzymes catalyse both anabolic and catabolic reactions in steroid hormone metabolism.  (+info)

Human cervical ripening, an inflammatory process mediated by cytokines. (5/94)

An extensive remodelling process, referred to as cervical ripening, takes place in the cervical tissue during pregnancy and labour. It is recognized as softening and dilation of the cervical canal, and starts as a slow process during pregnancy, becoming rapid close to partum. In this study we focus on cytokines as possible mediators of this final remodelling. mRNA levels for interleukin (IL)-8, IL-6 and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) were upregulated in the ripe postpartum cervical tissue (n = 8) compared to the unripe state (n = 9). Likewise, released cytokine concentrations increased from non-pregnant (n = 11) to the term-pregnant group (n = 13) with a further increase at partum (n = 16). IL-8 concentrations increased 4-fold from non-pregnant to term-pregnant (P<0.01), and a further 10-fold to postpartum state (P<0.0001). Concentrations of IL-6 and G-CSF were similarly increased. Specific IL-8 immunostaining was identified in the epithelia of pregnant cervical tissue (n = 7) and was most pronounced in the epithelia and stroma of postpartum tissue (n = 4). In conclusion, IL-8, IL-6 and G-CSF increase in the human cervix during the ripening process, indicating their important role in the cervical remodelling. These data demonstrate that cervical ripening is similar to an inflammatory process.  (+info)

Studies of cervical ripening in pregnant rats: effects of various treatments. (6/94)

The exact mechanisms that regulate cervical softening or ripening during pregnancy are not completely understood. The aim of this study was to estimate the effects of various agents on cervical softening during pregnancy in rats. Cervical resistance was examined after treatment with nitric oxide (NO) donors and inhibitors and different hormonal agents. Cervical resistance was significantly reduced (P< 0.05) in rats treated with the NO donors: sodium nitroprusside, molsidomine and prostaglandin E(2). However, treatments with the NO synthase (NOS) inhibitors N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and L-N(6)-1-iminoethyl-lysine (L-NIL), or the prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor, indomethacin, significantly increased resistance (P<0.05). The antiprogesterone, onapristone, reduced cervical resistance and its effects were only partially blocked by the progesterone agonist, promegestone. Relaxin reduced cervical resistance and NOS inhibitors partially blocked the effect of relaxin. These studies demonstrate that NO regulates cervical ripening. Relaxin also softens the cervix and may act by stimulating NO synthesis. Progesterone seems important in the control of cervical ripening, but its role appears complex. NO and prostaglandin pathways may independently control ripening by acting in parallel or synergistically.  (+info)

Prostaglandin E2 gel In ripening of cervix in induction of labour. (7/94)

A study was done in 75 patients who underwent induction of labour with Prostaglandin E2 gel. All these patients had an unripe cervix. The commonest indications were post-datism, intrauterine growth retardation and pregnancy-induced hypertension. All patients were primigravidas with singleton pregnancy and beyond 35 weeks of pregnancy. The mean Bishop score at the time of instillation was less than three. The improvement of another 2-3 points within six hours and by 7-8 points within 12 hours was found after instillation of the gel. 92% of the patients went into spontaneous labour and 8% required reinstillation. The incidence of failed induction was 1.33%. The mean duration of latent phase was 10.34 hours. Induction delivery time was 16.43 hours. 68.1% patients required augmentation of labour and 31.9% did not require augmentation of labour with oxytocin drip. The incidence of vaginal delivery was 81.33% and that of caesarean section was 17.33%. The commonest indication of caesarean section was foetal distress.  (+info)

The cervix as a predictor of preterm delivery in 'at-risk' women. (8/94)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between ultrasound-determined cervical status and pregnancy outcome in women 'at-risk' of spontaneous preterm delivery. DESIGN: A prospective cohort study of 120 pregnant women considered to be 'at-risk' of spontaneous preterm delivery by their clinician. Transvaginal ultrasound of the cervix was used to assess overall cervical length, closed endocervical canal length, diameter and internal os dilatation in the second trimester. The main outcome measure was occurrence of spontaneous preterm birth (< 34 and < 37 weeks of gestation). RESULTS: The overall preterm delivery rate (< 37 weeks gestation) in these women was 35% (n = 42) with 20% (n = 24) delivering < 34 weeks gestation. Of the 71 women with a normal cervix, 8 (11%) delivered < 34 weeks, whereas of the 49 women with an abnormal cervix, 16 (33%) delivered < 34 weeks (RR 2.90; 95% CI 1.35-6.24). Using linear regression, closed endocervical canal length of < 21 mm before 20 weeks is associated with delivery < 34 weeks in 95% of women, and with delivery < 37 weeks in 95% of women if the canal length is < 33 mm. Logistic regression showed closed endocervical canal length to be the only significant factor in those women who delivered < 34 weeks after controlling for possible confounders. CONCLUSIONS: A strong relationship is demonstrated between cervical status and pregnancy outcome, particularly the cervical findings before 20 and 24 weeks of gestation. The length of the closed portion of the endocervical canal is the best predictor. A beneficial effect of this approach to 'at-risk' women is the reduction in unnecessary interventions in those with normal cervical findings.  (+info)

Bishop score, also Bishops score, also known as cervix score is a pre-labor scoring system to assist in predicting whether induction of labor will be required. It has also been used to assess the odds of spontaneous preterm delivery. The Bishop Score was developed by Dr. Edward Bishop and was published in August 1964. The total score is achieved by assessing the following five components on vaginal examination: Cervical dilation Cervical effacement Cervical consistency Cervical position Fetal station The Bishop score grades patients who would be most likely to achieve a successful induction. The duration of labor is inversely correlated with the Bishop score; a score that exceeds 8 describes the patient most likely to achieve a successful vaginal birth. Bishop scores of less than 6 usually require that a cervical ripening method be used before other methods. They can be remembered with the mnemonic: Call PEDS For Parturition = Cervical Position, Effacement, Dilation, Softness; Fetal Station. ...

Bishop Tissier de Mallerais: Archbishop Lefebvre told us: You are bishops for the Church, for the Society; you will give the sacrament of Confirmation and confer Holy Orders; you will preach the faith. That is all. He did not say, I confer these powers to you; he simply indicated to us what our role would be. The jurisdiction that he did not give us-which he could not give us-and which the pope refused to give us, has been supplied by the Church, who gives it to us because of the state of necessity of the faithful. It is a suppletory jurisdiction, of the same nature as that which is accorded to priests by Canon Law in other cases of necessity. An example would be the jurisdiction to administer the sacrament of confession validly in the case of common error or positive and probable doubt, of right or of fact, about the jurisdiction of a priest (canon 209). In such a case, the Church has the habit of supplying the jurisdiction that might be lacking to the minister: Ecclesia supplet ...

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register published this editorial on Sept. 20 regarding the recently reported actions of former Bishop Michael Bransfield:
The bishop stood on the pavement outside Dr. Brighton-Pomfreys house. The massive door had closed behind him.. It had been an act of courage, of rashness if you will, to take this draught. He was acutely introspective, ready for anything, for the most disagreeable or the most bizarre sensations. He was asking himself, Were his feet steady? Was his head swimming?. His doubts glowed into assurance.. Suddenly he perceived that he was sure of God.. Not perhaps of the God of Nicæa, but what did these poor little quibblings and definitions of the theologians matter? He had been worrying about these definitions and quibblings for four long restless years. Now they were just failures to express-what surely every one knew-and no one would ever express exactly. Because here was God, and the kingdom of God was manifestly at hand. The visible world hung before him as a mist might hang before the rising sun. He stood proudly and masterfully facing a universe that had heretofore bullied him into doubt and ...

The transition from recoverable elastic to permanent inelastic deformation is marked by the onset of fracturing in the brittle field. Detection of this transition in materials is crucial to predict imminent failure/fracturing. We have used an ultrasonic pulse transmission method to record the change in waveform across this transition during ... read more fracturing experiments. The transition from elastic to inelastic deformation coincides with a minimum in ultrasonic attenuation (i.e., maximum wave amplitude). Prior to this attenuation minimum, the existing microfractures close. After this minimum, new microfractures form and attenuation increases until peak stress conditions, at which point, larger fractures form leading to complete sample failure. In our experiments, velocity changes are not sensitive enough to be indicative for the transition from elastic to inelastic deformation. Analysis of attenuation, not velocity, may thus detect imminent failure in materials. Our results may help ...

In recent years, there has been recognition that if the cervix is unfavorable, labor will rarely progress successfully to a vaginal delivery. Bishop attempted to define parameters of successful or failed labor induction with a cervical scoring system. Successful outcomes of cervical ripening include vaginal delivery without prolonged labor times, no increase in infection rates and good neonatal outcomes. Although the Bishop score is widely accepted, and it is agreed that progressive cervical dilatation will rarely occur unless softening and distensibility occur first, the task of motivating the cervix to achieve an optimal Bishop score has been challenging and frustrating.. What is the most optimal cervical ripening agent? The safety profile, efficacy and cost should figure into the decision analysis as each agent is compared in a randomized, controlled study. Although an effective labor-inducing agent, oxytocin (Pitocin) has not proved to be the best cervical ripening agent. Mechanical ...

This in no way was an easy task, it caused a lot of harsh relationships. Time with the family meant time away from the Fellowship and vice-versa. He established himself as a trader with his wife so long times away were no problem, and contracts were carried out throughout the Verse rarely returning to the Fellowship after completing one.

Why The Heck Is Amtrak Still In Business After Losing Money 43 Years Straight?. Rep. Bishop is right about one thing: Amtrak is moving, deeper into debt and irrelevancy.. Regarding the promise that the Affordable Care Act would expand rather than restrict access to health care and health insurance, Bishop emphasized:. 85% of Americans have coverage. But 85% of Americans dont have coverage that they can count on. Were trying to guarantee people that they can keep their coverage.. What happened in New York State after Obamacare? Deroy Murdock is losing his health coverage, and Avik Roy discussed the rising health care premiums for New Yorkers. Judicial Watch has reported that millions across the country are losing their health insurance, too.. President Obama got Washington Posts Four Pinocchios for his lie If you like your plan, you can keep it. Period.. In a 2009 town hall meeting before the vote on Obamacare, Bishop fielded questions from angry constituents. In this clip, one voter told ...
Thus this process has no parallel in the law at all, unless it would be the impeachment of a sitting President---but that is not a judicial process, either. There is no one body in the Episcopal Church (USA) which has the power to interpret Canon IV.9 in a definitive and authoritative (binding) manner. General Convention does not sit in judgment on a bishop; all it can do is change or amend canons which practice shows are ambiguous. The House of Bishops might be considered as such a body in the case of Canon IV.9, except that it no longer meets with a full complement of bishops who are canonically entitled to vote. (The last time it did so meet to depose a bishop, in the case of Bishop McCoskry of Michigan in 1878, the meeting had to be adjourned several times until enough bishops could be brought back from their vacations to make the required majority of the whole number entitled to vote. See the description and links in this post.) The House of Bishops alone has no authority to amend a canon, ...
Just a quick post. The NYTimes has an article saying that the Church of England has just voted to ordain women as bishops. A schism is threatened. This is the 21st century. Things are worse than I thought. Women cant be bishops because none of the 12 disciples were women. Evidently no one read Luke 8. No one seems to give Mary Magadalene the status she deserves. No one, other than some Samaritans listened to the nameless woman at the well. Folks seem quite content to read the Bible as long as it says what they want it to say. (Im in that camp too ...
Bishop John H. Koyle was shown an ancient nephite mine by heavenly messengers and and also shown the future by 2 translated nephite apostles in 1914. His life mission . . . the Relief Mine is located on the foot hills east of Salem, Utah. He was told that it will be opened and mined again when the United States goes into an 80% economic crash. Shortly after that the President of the United States and his VP are killed and the federal government no longer exists for a period of time. The gold from the mine will be the means of keeping the local economy prospering. Millions of refuges will flee to the Rocky Mountains as seen by Pres. John Taylor when chaos is let loose just as Joseph Smith prophecied. This mine will be part of the financial means of beginning and maintaining the political Kingdom of God as it grows to become the most powerful kingdom on earth.

MALAYBALAY CITY (MindaNews/04 July) - Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo may find it unbecoming of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte to throw punches at a court sheriff over a demolition incident, but a bishop said the mayor did the right thing in defying judicial technicalities for a higher humanitarian purpose.. The controversy over Sara Dutertes punching of a court sheriff in order to delay the actual demolition of homes of informal settlers in Davaos Agdao district is a clear case where morality should be the larger consideration than legal ethics, Bishop Felixberto Calang of Inpeace Mindanao said in a statement.. Calang said Dutertes action which intended to delay the actual demolition was a clear case where morality should be the larger consideration than legal ethics.. With Saras action, the brutality and in-humaneness of demolition orders- despite being cloaked in legality- has been brought to the social consciousness. Sara had pierced this judicial bubble which rich ...

I have provided OrthodoxWiki links to all the Bishops that I was able to identify (since only their first names were provided in the official release); if someone could kindly double check the links below for accuracy against the official list (again, the order is the same), I would appreciate it. I have bolded those names I was not able to identify, or whose full title I could not determine. Would be nice to have an article on all 55 hierarchs in OW. Thx.

Theres another problem with gradualism, when it means dragging ones feet and not making a change slow enough to adapt to, which is that you lose people along the way. It was one of those pronouncements about how the church would never accept women as priests, or as bishops, that made me decide to leave it. If I wasnt welcome for full participation, I wasnt goiung to support it as a follower. I think that thousands of women probably made similar decisions over the years and that the secular decline of the church has much to do with a silent boycott. People havent lost their need for community, their urge to help others, or their hunger for spiritual comfort. Theyve just moved on to other, secular sources, from the environmental movement to clinic defences to New Age snake oil. ...

Seasons Greetings, Whanau.. We have shifted!. Just over two weeks ago we moved into Thorndon. After living in the beautiful Reikorangi Valley for nearly 11 years it feels good but strange to be back in the city. The shift went well so thank you to everybody who helped carry boxes, etc.. Due to the shift Jenny and I have been thinking a lot about transitions. Its a little easier for me as I have at least been present in the role for 18 months; whereas Jenny is transitioning on numerous fronts. She is leaving leadership in Urban Vision, leaving Ngatiawa (our home), two of our three children are leaving home, and finally Jenny is relocating more into wider Diocesan life.. As I reflect on our transitions and the accompanying stress, anxiety and fears, it also makes me think of the Diocese at this season. The Diocese is in the middle of transition; transition with a new Bishop, with changes in approaches to ministry and mission. With this season of change in the Diocese, we can all feel the classic ...

Linebacker Desmond Bishop, the latest former Green Bay Packers player to come to Minnesota, said Tuesday that he joined the Vikings largely because of the opportunity to play against his old team twice a season.. Bishop signed a one-year deal reportedly worth between $840,000 and $1.35 million, depending on incentives.. That was part of the reason, Bishop told the NFL Network. I had a lot of people call and text saying, Oh, you want to get back at the Packers. Its not about that. I think its more of trying to play the best. If I can get the chance to play against Aaron Rodgers, I think that, right there, is motivation. You want to play against the best. When I was playing for Green Bay, the games I cherished the most were against the Vikings, because I got to play against Adrian Peterson. Thats my mindset. I want to play against the best. The opportunity to play Aaron Rodgers two times a year, that was something I liked.. Bishop said he had no hard feelings for the Packers, who released ...

Several years ago in Germany, while giving the sacrament of confirmation, a bishop was questioning the children who were about to be confirmed: Who can administer the sacrament of confirmation?, he asked. A young girl answered: Any bishop, once hes attained the age of reason!. Our old catechisms used to tell us that we reach the age of reason at, roughly, age seven. At one level, thats true, we can be responsible for ourselves then in a way we couldnt when we were toddlers or in kindergarten. But it takes a lot longer than age seven, a lifetime really, to be in full ownership of ourselves. And so, at another level, we might better peg the age of reason sometime after age 30, when we have a more responsible sense of who we are, what our lives mean, and what decisions we need to make in order to bring life to ourselves and thers. Its takes a long time before we can be really responsible.. But theres a further problem, by the time we reach maturity, we have also lost some vital, ...
