Abstract:
Purpose: To identify risk factors on intrauterine fetal Death. Design: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 1288 still births, treated as case studies, and 3888 live births, treated as control subjects, from March 1st 1999 to the end of February 2003. Intrauterine fetal death was defined by an estimated gestational age of more than 20 weeks, or a fetal weight more than 500g, and the main aim of the study was to determine the risk factors for intrauterine fetal death. All women who had stillbirths, as described herein, were identified through medical records, which in turn were generated during a census. For each case, three records were randomly chosen from the control group. Data was obtained from medical records and the collection process took tree months. Incomplete records were excluded. Results: Adjusted odds ratios and 95% confidence interval was significant for each qualitative variable related to intrauterine fetal death. Logistic regression was significant among variables which were different between the two groups as follows: parity (P=0.024), abortion (P=0.012), Low Birth weight (P=0.0001), Dystocia (P=0.041), Glucosuria (P=0.002), Proteinuria (P=0.016), Congenital abnormalities (P=0.0001), Fetal distress (P=0.003), Hydraminious (P=0.003), true Cord kode (P=0.002), Cord prolepses (P=0.002), Abnormal cord coiling around the neck (P=0.016), were associated with intrauterine fetal death. Conclusion: We found that to improve intrauterine fetal death, the most important steps are intensive antenatal care and increased monitoring for women with a history of stillbirth and other problems. Early diagnosis and prompt deliveries for woman with complications may be helpful in reducing the number of intrauterine fetal deaths. The prenatal care givers should also be made aware of such problems, as well as the actions that must be taken in emergency cases.
