Date:8/22/2012

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PeriGen, Inc., an innovative provider of fetal surveillance systems, today announced that the results of its program to identify women at increased risk of Shoulder Dystocia (SD) with Brachial Plexus Injury (BPI) have been published in the August issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG). The published results show that, with the introduction of this program, overall SD rates fell by more than half with no increase in the primary cesarean rate.

In the group using the PeriGen program, shoulder dystocia rates fell by 56.8%, while the primary cesarean delivery rate remained stable. Among providers not using the program, both shoulder dystocia and cesarean delivery rates were unchanged.
