To our knowledge, there is no published large-scale clinical trial on Arabin cerclage pessary usage in the combined issues of AUR and uterine prolapse in pregnancy. This case report describes the case of a 29-year-old gravida 2 para 1 woman with intrauterine pregnancy at 13 weeks of amenorrhea presented to the emergency department with suprapubic pain and inability to void. She has no past history of urogynaecological complaint and was subsequently catheterized with a Foley catheter. Within the next 12 hours, she presented with the same complaint. Gynaecological examination revealed grade 1 uterine prolapse with cystocele. A repeated catheterization for bladder drainage was done followed by insertion of an Arabin cerclage pessary due to the persistence of symptoms. Her symptoms resolved immediately without any complications and recurrence. She then delivered at term via lower segment caesarean section (LSCS). Therefore, Arabin cerclage pessary insertion could be used in pregnancy for woman with acute urinary retention and uterine prolapse beside its official indication.</p> Quek Yek Song Carla Cai Zi Tok Sin Lei Lei Jamiyah Binti Hassan ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-05-22 2020-05-22 12 15 Survival Analysis on Age at Teenage Pregnancies Using Parametric Frailty Models <p>Teenage pregnancies are common public health problem in the world. It is one of the main issues concerning reproductive health of teenagers. Although prevention of unwanted teenage pregnancy is our main goal, many females continue to become pregnant at early age. The current article goal is identifying the risk factors affecting survival time of teenage pregnancies. The information of this study was obtained from well-prepared questionnaire and focus group discussion. Female between age intervals 15 to 19 was used for assessing age at teenage pregnancies. Semi parametric model (Cox proportional hazard model) and parametric models (parametric shared frailty) were used to age at teenage pregnancies. The study subjects in this article came from clustered community. Parametric shared frailty models were explored by assuming that women with in the same residence shares similar risk factors. Weibull, Log logistics and Log normal distributions were analyzed for teenagers’ data set. All models were compared for their performance based on Akaike information criterion accordingly the log logistic inverse Gaussian shared frailty model was the best model for this data set since it has the minimum Akaike information criterion. This article show that marital status, age at marriage, teenager’s education level, Teenager’s occupation, mass media, family planning and Religion were significant risk factors for age at teenage pregnancies.</p> Selamawit Endale Gurmu Tashome Fenta Biru ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-05-19 2020-05-19 1 11
