Found (65) clinical trials

The CRB study is designed to study the safety and effectiveness of the Cook Cervical Ripening Balloon (CRB) for the induction of labor in term and near-term patients with premature rupture of membranes (PROM).

Phase N/A

The Impact of an Epidural Ropivacaine-Neostigmine Injection for Perineal Analgesia at the End of Labor.

The goal of epidural analgesia during labour is to obtain an analgesia with a minimum of “motor block”. Absence of motor block at the time of the childbirth allows to decrease the rate of instrumentation (forceps, vacuum extractor). When the parturient approach complete cervical dilatation (8-10 cm), the anaesthetist must ...

Phase N/A

Indomethacin Versus Nifedipine for Preterm Labor Tocolysis

Patients presenting between 24-34 weeks gestation diagnosed with preterm labor who grant consent will be randomized by the pharmacy to receive oral nifedipine or oral indomethacin. Both the patient and primary medical provider will be blinded to the identity of the study drug. An abdominal ultrasound will be performed in ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Warmed Parenteral Fluids During Delivery

Prospective randomized controlled trial. Assessing the influence of warmed parenteral fluids during delivery/cesarean section on the obstetrical and neonatal outcome. The investigators will randomize parturients during the active phase of labor to receive either body temperature warmed parenteral fluids or room temperature parenteral fluids. Both groups will receive the same ...

Phase N/A

Family Nurture Intervention in the NICU at The Valley Hospital

This study aims to build upon the findings of the earlier randomized controlled trial (RCT) conducted at the Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) comparing effects, both physiological and emotional, of the current standard method of encouraging contact between mothers and their babies in the NICU with the more specific approach ...

Phase N/A

Vaginal Progesterone Supplementation in the Management of Preterm Labor

This study evaluates the addition of vaginal progesterone in the management of preterm labor. Half of participants will receive vaginal progesterone, tocolysis and corticosteroid, while the other half will receive only tocolysis and corticosteroid.

Phase N/A

Oral Versus Parental Progesterone in the Management of Preterm Labor

Preterm birth, defined as delivery at less than 37 weeks gestation, complicates approximately 12% of pregnancies in the United States Preterm delivery has been, and remains, the most important challenge to modern obstetrics. In 2009, 13 million babies were born preterm, 11 million in Africa and Asia and 500,000 in ...


Maternal Serum Amyloid A Levels in Pregnancies Complicated With Preterm Labour.

The aim of the current study is to assess the accuracy of maternal serum amyloid A for prediction of preterm labor in women with threatened preterm labor.

Phase N/A

Vaginal Progesterone for the Prevention of Preterm Birth in Women With Arrested Preterm Labor

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The investigators will perform a randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the use of vaginal progesterone in women with arrested preterm labor after 24 weeks' gestation to reduce the risk of preterm birth before 37 weeks' gestation. Women enrolled in the study will be randomized to ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers Associated With Spontaneous Preterm Birth Less Than 32 Wks Gestation

Preterm delivery (PTD) is a leading cause of neonatal mortality and continues to be a major public health concern, reaching 12.9% in 2006, despite intense research to reverse this trend. Currently, fetal fibronectin (fFN) screening and cervical length determined by ultrasound are two tests which are proven to have benefit ...
