Abstract

Introduction Curriculum vitae Luis A. CIBILS, M.D., graduated from the National University of Paraguay. After training he did postgraduate work, under various fellowships, in Spain, France, and Uruguay where he concentrated on Perinatal Medicine (1957-1960). In the U. S. A. since I960, and a Professor at The University of Chicago since 1966, he has continued to work in that area publishing his experience in the book "Electronic Fetal-Maternal Monitoring" published in 1981. He edited the volume "Surgical Diseases in Pregnancy" in 1990. His bibliography numbers over 95 titles between articles and book chapters. Prolonged pregnancy (> 294 days of amenorrhea from last menstrual period) is considered with good reason to represent an abnormality in human gestation. Whether it should be considered "high-risk" or not is a matter of controversy. Some flatly state that there is no reason to consider them differently "from any other laboring patients" [12] or that standard management suffices to obtain good outcomes [7, 9, 13, 19] while others recommend a closer observation [5, 10, 11, 14, 18].
