Introduction of Obstetrics Unit 2
The obstetrics department of Women’s Hospital is a national key clinical specialty and a key discipline in Zhejiang Province. Obstetrics Unit 2, directly led by Prof. Jing He，a well-known expert in obstetrics, is featured with standardized obstetric management. Through efforts over many years, our diagnosis and treatment level has possessed the national leading position.
2.Treatment & Service
Our team members have advanced medical skills and rich experience, and are able to provide the most accurate and prompt treatment for all types of obstetric disease, including normal pregnancy, abnormal pregnancy and various emergency obstetrics, and also have made notable achievements in promoting natural delivery and reduction of cesarean section rate safely and effectively.
1.The Treatment of Hypertensive Disorder Complicated Pregnancy (HDP)
The HDP are a major cause of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity worldwide, especially those complicated by pre-eclampsia/ eclampsia. In decades of clinical works, Prof. Jing He has had a wealth of experience in diagnosis and treatment of HDP. By passing on experience generation after generation, Unit 2 has its own distinct specialty in managing HDP and can offer patients the most suitable and individualized treatment.
(2) Vaginal Birth after Cesarean Section
As one of the pioneers in carrying out trial of labor after cesarean section (TOLAC), our unit sticks to the clinical guidelines in candidate selection and labor management and have accumulated rich experience. Prof. Jing He also participated in developing the consensus of TOLAC in China. Now, through high-quality training, the department of obstetrics has had a strong and complete medical team including obstetricians, midwives, nurses and other obstetric care providers to offer professional and safe medical care for women attempting TOLAC. We will continue to follow the principle of normalization, sufficiently weigh the benefits and risks, strictly master the indications and contraindications, and to improve obstetric quality and safety.
(3) Advanced Maternal Age (AMA) Pregnancies
Older pregnant women are at higher risk of aneuploidy, gestational diabetes, hypertensive disorders, and operative delivery, which may result in the higher incidence of cesarean delivery and associated complications. Thanks to the outstanding ability of dealing with almost all kinds of obstetric complications and emergencies, our unit could offer precise and individualized management in pregnancy and perinatal period for AMA. It’s worth mentioning that Prof. Jing He has successfully managed a 61-year-old pregnant woman and a 52-year-old one and achieved safe delivery, of which the latter was twin pregnancy, setting a precedent in Zhejiang Province.
Under the leadership of Prof. Jing He, the team has been devoted to research of the prevention and treatment of early-onset preeclampsia. By using various techniques such as molecular biology and placental pathology, the study focuses on the etiology, pathophysiological development and the effect on prognosis of early-onset preeclampsia, and the preventive effect of drugs on the recurrence of early-onset preeclampsia. Many medical papers have been published and the team has accumulated rich practical experience in the prevention and treatment of early-onset preeclampsia.
