Abstract

Pre-eclampsia is a very frequent complication of pregnancy, and anticipation of birth is often necessary. However, the best mode of giving birth remains to be established, although observational studies suggest better maternal and perinatal outcomes with vaginal birth. To assess the effects of a policy of planned caesarean section versus planned vaginal birth for women with severe pre-eclampsia on mortality and morbidity for mother and baby. We searched Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials Register, ClinicalTrials.gov, the World Health Organization (WHO) International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (6 September 2017) and reference lists of retrieved studies. We planned to include all randomised trials of planned caesarean section versus planned vaginal birth for pregnant women with severe pre-eclampsia. Quasi-randomised and non-randomised studies are not eligible for inclusion in this review.The focus of this review is severe pre-eclampsia; studies of planned caesarean section versus planned vaginal birth in pregnant women with eclampsia are not eligible for inclusion. We identified no studies that met the inclusion criteria. We excluded two studies. There are no included studies in this review. There is a lack of robust evidence from randomised controlled trials that can inform practice regarding planned caesarean section versus planned vaginal birth for women with severe pre-eclampsia. There is a need for high-quality randomised controlled trials to assess the short- and long-term effects of caesarean section and vaginal birth for these women and their babies.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 26. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 May 2019.
All research outputs
#628,463
of 13,452,308 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#2,025
of 10,598 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#26,112
of 312,489 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#64
of 257 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,452,308 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,598 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 312,489 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 257 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
