  • Placenta
    Previa : Preponderance of Male Sex at Birth

    Demissie K, Brakenridge MB, Joseph L, et al (
    Univ of Medicine and Dentisty of New Jersy-Robert
    Wood Johnson Med School, New Brunswick, McGill Univ,
    Montreal )

    Am J Epidemiol 149; 824-830, 1999



    This  is a meta- analysis of seven published
    reports on this topic. It revealed a 14% excess of
    placenta previa when women were carrying a viable
    male fetus versus a viable female fetus during
    pregnancy.



    It concludes that women carrying male fetuses have a
    higher risk of placenta previa.

  • Elective
    Caesarean – Section Verses Vaginal Delivery in
    Prevention of vertical HIV – 1 Transmission : A
    randomised Clinical Trial

    Parazzini F, for the European Mode of Delivery
    Collaboration ( Istituto Mario Negri, Milano, Italy
    )

    Lancet 353; 1035 – 1039, 1999



    Infection was documented in 1.8% of the infants in
    the caesarean group and 10.5% in the vaginal
    delivery group in this randomised clinical study of
    436 women who had a confirmed diagnosis of HIV-1



    The authors conclude that elective caesarean section
    Significantly reduces the risk of mother – to -
    child transmission of HIV infection and does not
    increase the risk of maternal complications
