Preterm premature rupture of membrane assessment via transperineal ultrasonography: a diagnostic accuracy study
KALAFAT, ERKAN; Yuce, Tuncay; Tanju, Ozge; Koc, Acar (Informa UK Limited, 2016-11-01)
Objective: The objective of this study is to evaluate diagnostic accuracy of transperineal ultrasound assessment compared to speculum examination by using placental alfa-microglobulin (PAMG)-1 tests as reference.Methods: This was a prospective observational study conducted in Ankara University Hospital. Women with early and late preterm pregnancies with suspected rupture of membranes, i.e. women with a complaint of fluid leakage (105 in total) were enrolled. Prior to speculum examination, sagittal and trans...
Ultrasound in labor admission to predict need for emergency cesarean section: a prospective, blinded cohort study
Karaaslan, Onur; Islamova, Gunel; Soylemez, Feride; Kalafat, Erkan (Informa UK Limited, 2019-11-12)
Objective: To assess whether assessment with ultrasound could improve the detection of emergency cesarean section (ECS) in laboring women. Methods: Women who presented with symptoms of active labor or women in need of labor induction were invited to participate in the study. Women included in the study were evaluated with ultrasonography for fetal biometry and vaginal examinations for Bishop score assessment. The main aim in this study was determining factors associated with ECS due to fetal distress and ob...

BEKSAÇ, MEHMET SİNAN; TANAÇAN, ATAKAN; Bacak, Hikmet Ozge; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2018-11-01)
Aim: To develop a supportive computerized prediction system for the route of delivery.
Risk of neonatal care unit admission in small for gestational age fetuses at term: a prediction model and internal validation
Kalafat, Erkan; Morales-Rosello, Jose; Thilaganathan, Basky; Dhother, Jasreen; Khalil, Asma (Informa UK Limited, 2019-07-18)
Objective: Small for gestational age (SGA) fetuses are at increased risk of admission to the neonatal unit, even at term. We aimed to develop and validate a predictive model for the risk of prolonged neonatal unit admission in suspected SGA fetuses at term. Methods: A single-center cohort study of singleton pregnancies with SGA fetus, defined as estimated fetal weight (EFW) less than the 10th centile, at term. The variables included known risk factors for neonatal unit admissions: maternal characteristics, ...
Efficacy of carbetocin in the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage: a systematic review and Bayesian meta-analysis of randomized trials
KALAFAT, ERKAN; Gokce, Ali; O'Brien, Pat; Benlioglu, Can; Koc, Acar; Karaaslan, Onur; Khalil, Asma (Informa UK Limited, 2019-09-19)
Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of carbetocin for the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and related events after vaginal or cesarean delivery. Methods: Medline, Scopus, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched in February 2018 using combinations of the relevant MeSH terms, keywords. Randomized studies, comparing carbetocin to any other uterotonic agent, in the management of cesarean and vaginal deliveries, were conducted. Two reviewers independently extracted the data. A random-effects me...
