Selected EJOG Papers

  • Comment by the editor: Complementary medicine in early pregnancy
    Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) are widely used by women both in health and disease, despite a lack of robust evidence that they work and, more importantly, that they are safe. How widespread is their use in pregnancy? This questionnaire survey of 500 women in Scotland attending for mid-pregnancy scans found that CAM are widely used in the early stages of pregnancy, even though the majority of respondents were uncertain about their safety and effectiveness.

  • Comment by the editor: Bariatric surgery and pregnancy
    The current epidemic of obesity in some developed countries has led to an increased demand for surgical procedures such as gastric banding. Does such surgery reduce the risk of the obesity-related complications of pregnancy? This review of 17 non-randomised cohort or case-control studies concludes that bariatric surgery (BS) improves some pregnancy outcomes, and that laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding does not increase the rate of small neonates seen with other BS procedures.

    Maternal and neonatal outcomes in women undergoing bariatric surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis

    Nicolas Galazis, Nikolina Docheva, Constantinos Simillis, Kypros H. Nicolaides
