Résumé

La ventouse Kiwi OmniCup™ (Clinical Innovations™, Muray, Utah, États-Unis) a été développée pour offrir plusieurs avantages. Il s'agit d'un système complet avec une pompe d'aspiration manuelle manipulée par l'obstétricien. C'est aussi un instrument à usage unique, ce qui limite les risques potentiels de transmission des infections et simplifie la logistique de la stérilisation. Sa petite taille, la mobilité du tracteur et l'existence d'un indicateur de traction représentent également des caractéristiques techniques intéressantes pour son utilisation. Cependant, les données concernant son efficacité sont contradictoires. Les premiers travaux ont montré des taux de succès de voie basse élevés, alors que deux études randomisées récentes ont trouvé que la ventouse Kiwi OmniCup™ était moins efficace que les ventouses conventionnelles. En terme de sécurité, elle offre des garanties similaires pour la mère et le foetus. Des données supplémentaires sont toutefois nécessaires pour compléter son évaluation.

Abstract

The vacuum extractor Kiwi OmniCup™ (Clinical Innovations, Muray, Utah, USA) has been developed to provide several advantages. This is a complete system with an integral hand-held vacuum operated by the obstetrician. This is also a single use instrument, which may reduce the risk of potential transmission of infections and the logistic of sterilization process. Further potential benefits of this system include the smaller overall equipment size and the ability to measure traction force. However, the data about its efficiency remain conflicting. The first works demonstrated very high successful rate of vaginal delivery, whereas two recent randomized studies showed that the Kiwi Omnicup™ was less efficient than currently used vacuum extractor. It appears to be as safe as conventional a device for both mother and newborn. However, further additional data remain necessary needed to complete its evaluation.
