Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Complications during pregnancy are common and can occur due to medical, surgical, fetal or obstetrical causes. Management strategy of such complications including diagnosis and treatment is ever changing. This Special Issue invites submission of manuscripts that are hypothesis generating or testing studies that shed light on the pressing questions in management. All conditions or disorders are included, as long as a component of management is explored. Diagnosis modalities could include, but not limited to, laboratory and imaging modalities such as ultrasound, MRI and computerized tomography scan. Clinical surveillance for complications exploring the cost-effectiveness of different strategies is also considered. Randomized controlled trials exploring the efficacy of treatment methods is highly desired.
