Abstract

Prolaps organ panggul merupakan salah satu bentuk disfungsi dasar panggul pada perempuan. Disfungsi dasar panggul adalah keadaan terganggunya fungsi dasar panggul merupakan salah satu kondisi kesehatan yang banyak dikeluhkan perempuan. Lebih dari 46% perempuan dengan riwayat persalinan vaginal mengalami disfungsi dasar panggul,dan peningkatan jumlah paritas berkorelasi dengan peningkatan kejadian prolaps organ panggul. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui gambaran karakteristik faktor risiko prolaps organ panggul pasca persalinan vaginal di wilayah Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta. Penelitian dilakukan pada Januari–Maret 2018. Hasil penelitian didapatkan 51 subjek penelitian dengan persalinan vaginal yang dapat dilakukan pemeriksaan POPQ pada 3 bulan pascapersalinan. Prolaps organ panggul didapatkan pada sebagian besar pasien pascasalin, yaitu sejumlah 46 orang, prolaps uteri 33 orang, sistokel 44 orang, serta rektokel pada 46) orang. Hanya 5 orang yang tidak memiliki gambaran prolaps organ panggul pada 3 bulan pascapersalinan.Dari penelitian ini dapat disimpulkan bahwa faktor risiko prolaps organ panggul pascapersalinan vaginal di Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta terdiri atas faktor intrinsik (usia ibu, panjang genital hiatus maupun perineal body), dan ekstrinsik (paritas, indeks massa tubuh overweight dan obes, kenaikan berat badan selama hamil >15 kg, serta dilakukan episiotomi dan terjadi robekan perineum). Upaya pencegahan terutama edukasi, perbaikan gaya hidup, pengendalian indeks massa tubuh, pengaturan diet, olahraga penguatan otot dasar panggul, pembatasan jumlah kehamilan dan persalinan, serta pertolongan persalinan sesuai Asuhan persalinan normal. Kata kunci: Disfungsi dasar panggul, faktor risiko, persalinan vaginal, prolaps organ panggul Risk Factors for Pelvic Organ Prolapse in Women with History of Vaginal Delivery in YogyakartaPelvic organ prolapse is one form of pelvic floor dysfunctions in women that impairs the pelvic floor function and also one of the most frequently conditions complained by women. More than 46% women with history of vaginal delivery have experienced pelvic floor dysfunction where higher number of parity correllates to increased pelvic organ prolapse incident. The aim of this study was to understand the  characteristic risk factors of pelvic organ prolapse incident post vaginal delivery in Special Region of Yogyakarta. The study ws performed during the period of January to March 2018 on 51 subjects with history of vaginal delivery evaluated using POPQ in 3 months postpartum. Pelvic floor dysfunction was present in most postpartum patients, i,e, 46 people while 33 experienced uterine prolapse, 44 experienced cystocele, and 46 experienced rectocele. Only 5 subjects had no pelvic floor dysfunction in any form. Risk factors for pelvic organ prolapse in post vaginal delivery in the Special Region of Yogyakarta consist of intrinsic factors (maternal age, genital length of hiatus, and perineal body), and extrinsic factors (parity, overweight status and obese status based on body mass index, weight gain during pregnancy exceeding 15 kg,  episiotomy and the occurrence of perineal rupture). Prevention actions include  education followed by lifestyle improvement, control of body mass index, dietary regulation, exercise, restrictions on the number of pregnancies and childbirth, and safe delivery according to normal birth care standard.Key words: Pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, risk factors, vaginal delivery

Abstract

Introduction: Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal condition produced by overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria. Stress can alter women’s reproductive health in many ways; one of them is increasing the risk for bacterial vaginosis. In facing stressful life conditions, resilience plays an important role to maintain optimal function and prevent traumatic experience. Methods: This research was an analytical observational study with cross sectional design. Questionnaires were given to 104 women in reproductive age between November 2013 and January 2014. Resilience and stress were assessed using The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and Self Reporting Questionnaire respectively, and bacterial vaginosis status was diagnosed using Amsel’s criteria. Statistical analysis was performed using chi square test and multiple logistic regressions. Results: Bivariate analysis showed significant relations between resilience (p=0,005), stress (p=0,002), frequency of sexual intercourse within 1 week (p= 0,015) and the bacterial vaginosis incidence. Multivariate analysis showed stress was the most influential factor OR=3,9 (95% CI=1,478–10,562). Discussion: Resilience and stress were significantly with increased risk of having bacterial vaginosisKeywords: resilience, stress, bacterial vaginosis, reproductive age women

Abstract

Background: Vaginal delivery is the most preffered mode of delivery by all women, and the birth attendants. The vaginal delivery assistance was conducted by various health professionals such as midwives, physicians, and obstetricians. Various complaints of pelvic floor dysfunction and complaints related to the perineum as a result of vaginal perineal laceration during childbirth can affect the quality of life of a woman.Objective: To identify and conduct an analysis of maternal factors (maternal age, parity, gestational age), fetal factor (birth weight), and the labor factor (duration of 2nd stage of labor), with the occurrence of perineal rupture in vaginal delivery at the 5 Midwife’s Private Clinic (MPC), Yogyakarta, Indonesia.Method: Retrospective medical record searching, from January 2014 until December 2016.Result and Discussion: There were 1595 obtained samples of data that met the criteria for inclusion and exclusion. Number of perineal laceration reached 1201 (75.3%), with 1.9% of them are grade 3. Perineal rupture occurred in 80.55% of vaginal deliveries at young age, 69.14% in more than 35 years old women, and 85.05% primiparas. There was significant negative correlation (0.186) between parity and perineal rupture (p=0.000). The less the parity, the higher the incidence of perineal rupture (p=0.002). There was significant correlation between baby’s weight less than 2500 gram and perineal rupture but not for the baby’s weight more than 4000grams (p=0.304). The correlation was positive which meant that the heavier the baby’s weight the higher the incidence of perineal rupture. There was significant positive correlation (p=0,018) for the duration of 2nd stage of labor between 30-60 minutes and perineal rupture(0.061). The correlation was positive as well (0.092) for the duration of 2nd stage of labor more than 60 minutes and perineal rupture( p=0.002). The longer the duration of the 2nd stage of labor the higher the incidence of perineal rupture.Conclusion: There was significant relationship between parity, and duration of the 2nd stage of labor and perineal rupture in vaginal delivery.Keywords: perineal rupture, vaginal delivery, parity, duration of the 2nd stage of labor

Abstract

Objective: To compare the incidence of persistent sonographic anal sphincter defect, fecal urgency, anal and fecal incontinence after IIIb- IV degree perineal rupture repair using overlapping and end-to-end technique. Method: An open clinical trial with randomization was carried out in July 2010-April 2012. The population consisted of the patients who underwent vaginal delivery in Dr. Sardjito Central General Hospital, Sleman District General Hospital, as well as Tegalrejo, Jetis and Mergangsan Community Health Centers who did no have complaints of fecal urgency, anal incontinence, and/or fecal incontinence, and suffered IIIb-IV degree perineal rupture repaired within less than 24 hours of rupture. The exclusion criteria included conditions in which patients could not undergo repair at the moment (shock, uncooperative patient). Fourty-eight research samples were divided into 2 groups, 24 samples for each of the treatment group (overlapping repair) and the control group (end-to-end repair). Local anesthesia was performed in a pudendal-block manner. Result: Success of the repair was assessed based on the presence of persistent sonographic anal sphincter defects in the 6-week evaluation after repair. Successful repair was higher in the overlapping group than that of the end-to-end group (94.74% vs 81.25%, p=0.31). Clinically and based on the Fecal Continence Scoring Scale (FCSS), evaluation at weeks II and VI indicated successful repair in both groups. Conclusion: There was no difference in the incidence of persistent sonographic anal sphincter defects, fecal urgency, anal incontinence, and fecal incontinence, after IIIb-IV degree perineal rupture repair using overlapping technique in comparison with end-to-end technique.

Abstract

ABSTRACT Introduction. Premature rupture of membrane (PROM) and preterm PROM (PPROM) are commonly related with poor maternal and perinatal outcomes. Urinary tract infection (UTI) has been known as one of its risk factors.Aim. To ascertain the frequency and pattern of urinary symptoms as well as the risk factors for UTI in PROM and preterm PROM (PPROM)Method. A retrospective study was conducted at Dr. Sardjito General Hospital, Yoyakarta, Indonesia. All pregnancy cases with the history of PROM/PPROM from January to December 2015 were included. The research subjects were obtained from medical records, using the format of basic data collection to identify the risk factors of UTI in pregnancyResults. One hundred cases of complicated pregnancy with either PROM or PPROM were obtained. The mean of maternal age, gestational age, and birth weight were 28 ± 5.99 years; 34.05 ± 4:28 weeks; 2170.79 ± 835.447 grams; respectively. Urinalysis were done in 58 patients. The prevalence of bacteriuria was 55.17%. Symptomatic vs asymptomatic bacteriuria showed statistically significant differences (p <0.001, OR = 0.409; CI = 0287-0584). In multivariate analysis using linear regression, maternal age, gestational age, and parity were not directly related to the occurrence of UTI (p = .367; p = .697; p = .385; respectively).Conclusion. It was revealed that the proportions of symptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy were significantly higher than asymptomatic. There were no significant differences related to the prevalence of UTI in pregnancy complicated with PROM and PPROM.

Abstract

ABSTRACT &nbsp; Background: Preterm delivery is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in developing countries. Urinary tract infection is one of the infectious diseases that often occur in pregnant women. Despite, the correlation between bacteriuria, either symptomatic or asymptomatic, and preterm delivery is still controversial. Purpose: To investigate the correlation between the incidence of UTI and preterm delivery. Methods: We conducted a cohort retrospective research using patients medical records. We analyzed the incidence of UTI and preterm delivery from January to December 2015, in Dr. Sardjito Hospital, Yogyakarta. Results: The sample of this study covers medical records of 45 patients with preterm delivery. From total sampel, only 25 patients (55.6%) underwent urinalysis. Of these 25 patients, 15&nbsp; (60%) had UTIs and all of them had preterm delivery. The result showed 13 (86.7%) of 15 patients with bacteriuria were asymptomatic. Bacteriuria that was found in 15 subjects was not statistically significant when compared to preterm delivery indicated with relative ratio of 1,083 (p = 0,581 &gt; 0,05). Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that preterm delivery were not directly related to UTI (p = 0.704), gestational age (p = 0.274), symptom of UTI (0.699), history of UTI (p=0.999), and history of coitus (p = 0.872). Conclusion: The study revealed that preterm delivery was not related to UTI. Other causes should be considered. However, the discovery of asymptomatic bacteriuria in patients with preterm delivery indicated that this might be one of the risk factors for preterm delivery. Routine urinalysis test for pregnant woman considered for the prevention. &nbsp; Keywords: UTIs, preterm delivery, bacteriuria &nbsp;
