NCT ID: NCT06357962 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Pregnancy Complications

Semi-permanent Acupuncture Effect on Cervical Ripening

Start date: September 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Cervical ripening is a medical treatment that can cause physical or emotional discomfort in pregnant women and is not without risks. This is a pilot study to assess feasibility and calculate the number of participants necessary for a complete clinical trial. The aim is to evaluate whether acupuncture can reduce the need for treatment (cervical ripening) in pregnant women at low or intermediate risk. Participants will be divided into two groups: one group will receive acupuncture, and the other will receive a simulated treatment of acupuncture.

Middle-aged Women With Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes and Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction

MAPO-HF
Start date: March 18, 2024
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Due to the steady increase in the burden of HFpEF, especially in women, it is an important task to search for new markers and early predictors associated with the development of this disease. Nowadays, the relationship of adverse pregnancy factors with the development of long-term cardiac pathology, in particular, HFpEF, has not been completely established. One of the most significant issue is studying the younger phenotype of women. The goal of this observational analytical cross-sectional study is to study the relationship of heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction in middle-aged women with adverse pregnancy outcomes in the history of pregnancy. Research question: is there an association between adverse pregnancy factors and the development of HF in middle-aged women? Objectives 1. To assess the frequency of detection of APOs in the history of pregnancy in middle-aged women, depending on the presence or absence of HFpEF. 2. To compare clinical and anamnestic data, morphological and functional parameters of the heart in middle-aged women with the presence and absence of HFpEF. 3. To establish an association between APOs and the development of HFpEF in the long-term period in middle-aged women. 4. To identify mediators between the presence of APOs and the development of HFpEF in middle-aged women. Study population - 45-60 year-old women with the history of pregnancy (>20 weeks) in the absence of low left ventricle ejection fraction (<50%) Primary endpoint: The prevalence of HFpEF in patients with the history of APOs.

NCT ID: NCT06330987 Recruiting - Pregnancy Related Clinical Trials

Fetal Autonomic Nervous sysTem Evaluation

FANTE
Start date: August 13, 2019
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is involved in cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive processes, so its study in the fetus can provide relevant functional diagnostic and prognostic information. In particular, the study of the fetal ANS allows us to understand the degree of nervous maturation reached by the fetus and any developmental disorders that could have an impact on the cardiovascular characteristics of the fetus. The goal of this open-label, non-randomized, prospective observational study is to study the fetal ANS in pregnant women between 23 and 40 weeks of gestation. The objetives are: - To Evaluate Fetal Autonomic Nervous System (FANTE) through the analysis of maternal electrocardiogram (ECG) and others clinical parameters usually used in pregnancy monitoring. - To identify any variations in the fetal ECG in the event of developmental or pathological maternal and/or fetal pregnancy. Participants will be recruited during ultrasound visits, information sessions, and hospitalizations after signing informed consent.

NCT ID: NCT06314178 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Pregnancy Complications

Assessing Demographic Biases in Deep Learning Model for Fetal Growth Estimation in Clinical Practice. Patients Eligible for Inclusion Are Women With a Gestational Age Between 24-42 Weeks Undergoing a Third-trimester Growth Scan. The Image Data From the Scan Are Used to Calculate Fetal Weight.

Start date: March 15, 2024
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The goal of this observational study is to compare a new artificial intelligence (AI) feedback tool with the traditional method for estimating fetal weight during ultrasound scans on pregnant women between 24-42 weeks of gestation. The study aims to investigate the presence of demographic bias in the AI model. The demographic factors examined in the study include Body Mass Index (BMI), the number of births, fetal age, mother&#39;s age, fetal sex, and the presence of preeclampsia. Moreover, the study will compare the accuracy of the AI model and the Hadlock model, a fetal growth formula, in estimating fetal weight. Participants will have their ultrasound scans pseudonymized and securely stored on password-protected removable drives, ensuring their identity and privacy are maintained. Afterward, the ultrasound data will be sent to the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where the AI model will analyze the images to estimate fetal weight.

NCT ID: NCT06291766 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Diabetes, Gestational

Gestational Diabetes After Gastric Bypass Surgery

Start date: January 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The goal of this trial is to compare different means of glucose monitoring in women with gestational diabetes and a history of gastric bypass surgery. The main question it aims to answer is: How does continous glucose monitoring impact the treatment and affect pregnancy outcome in these women. Participants will be randomized to either continous glucose monitoring or regular capillary glucose measurements during the last trimester of their pregnancy. Researchers will compare the glucose measurement outcomes, the glucose lowering treatment given and pregnancy outcomes between groups.

Fetoscopic Laser Photocoagulation in Management of Vasa Previa

FLUMEN
Start date: May 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

In this research study, the investigators want to learn more about the safety and effectiveness of a fetal surgery, known as fetoscopic laser photocoagulation (FLP), for the treatment of a pregnancy condition called vasa previa (VP). Vasa previa is a pregnancy complication that happens when blood vessels from the fetus grow over the entrance to the womb. In a VP pregnancy, natural vaginal birth is deadly for the baby in more than half of cases due to the bursting of VP vessels and severe blood loss. Currently, VP patients are recommended to be closely monitored and often hospitalized once they reach the third trimester of pregnancy. An early delivery by C-section would typically be performed in order to avoid breaking the exposed fetal vessels. Fetoscopic laser photocoagulation is a minimally invasive surgery in the womb to remove or correct abnormal blood vessels and tissues. In the FLP procedure, the surgeon uses a fetoscope (a tiny telescope) and a laser device to seal off unprotected vessels. While this surgery has been used to treat other pregnancy conditions, it has not yet been proven to be safe and/or effective for the treatment of vasa previa. This treatment aims to eliminate the VP, and, if successful, may have the potential to minimize the risk of bleeding, thereby enabling patients to avoid long hospitalization before delivery. This procedure may enable VP patients to have a vaginal delivery instead of C-section.

Treatment With Aspirin After Preeclampsia: TAP Trial

TAP
Start date: May 1, 2024
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The objective of this research project is to conduct a single-site pilot trial to assess the feasibility and effect of low-dose aspirin to augment vascular recovery in the immediate postpartum period after preeclampsia through two specific aims: 1) to pilot test the feasibility of conducting a randomized controlled trial of postpartum low dose aspirin vs. placebo, and 2) to assess the effect of postpartum aspirin on endothelial function and blood pressure. Our central hypothesis is that postpartum administration of low-dose aspirin following preeclampsia will be feasible, improve endothelial function, and lower BP at 6 months postpartum. Subjects will undergo 3 study visits involving BP measurements, blood draws, questionnaires, and/or microiontophoresis. Up to 60 adult subjects will be enrolled at Magee-Women's Hospital.

Diamine Oxidase and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes

Start date: February 16, 2024
Phase:
Study type: Observational

In normal pregnancies, blood histamine concentration remains within normal values; however, the serum histaminolytic activity is increased. Histamine is mainly produced by mast cells, platelets, basophils, neurons and enterochromatin cells, where it is stored and released when required. Reduced DAO activities have been found in high-risk pregnancies. Lower DAO activity has been associated to miscarriage, fetal demise, preeclampsia, low birthweight and preterm birth. The placenta is very rich in DAO activity and is the principal source of increased histaminolytic activity in normal pregnancies. First-trimester screening for preeclampsia (PE) is a routine screening which is performed in the first trimester. Women with a positive result are at a greater risk of PE but also other pregnancy complications such as stillbirth, preterm birth and low birthweight. These cases are prescribed aspirin until term. This intervention has demonstrated to significantly reduce the risk of PE and other complications. Unfortunately, aspirin does not avoid all cases with adverse outcomes, indicating that additional mechanisms may be involved in the development of such pregnancy complications, such as DAO decreased activity.
