Umbilical Cord Milking in Infants Born at <37 Weeks of Gestation: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Journal of Clinical Medicine, 9(4), 1071. DOI:
dc.description.abstractUmbilical cord milking (UCM) could be an alternative in cases where delayed umbilical cord clamping cannot be performed, therefore our objective was to evaluate the effects ofUCMin newborns <37 weeks’ gestation. In this systematic review and meta-analysis, we searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, the Cochrane Database of Clinical Trials, the database for randomizedUCM clinical trials with no language restrictions, which we then compared with other strategies. The sample included 2083 preterm infants. The results of our meta-analysis suggest thatUCMin premature infants can reduce the risk of transfusion (relative risk (RR)= 0.78 [95% confidence interval (CI),0.67–0.90]) and increase hemoglobin(pooled weighted mean difference (PWMD)= 0.89 g/L[95%CI 0.55–1.22]) and mean blood pressure (PWMD=1.92 mmHg [95% CI 0.55–3.25]). Conversely, UCM seems to increase the risk of respiratory distress syndrome (RR = 1.54 [95% CI 1.03–2.29]), compared to the control groups. In infants born at <33 weeks,UCMwas associated with a reduced risk of transfusion (RR= 0.81 [95%CI 0.66–0.99]), as well as higher quantities of hemoglobin (PWMD= 0.91 g/L[95%CI 0.50–1.32]). UCM reduces the risk of transfusion in preterm infants, and increases initial hemoglobin, hematocrit, and mean blood pressure levels with respect to controls.es_ES
