They found a high pregnancy risk in 10.9% of cases, high delivery risk in 14.02% of cases, and high risk newborns in 16.35% of cases. Low risk pregnant women had(More)
A total of 509 single pregnancies in teenagers up to 18 years old were examined. Younger teenagers proved to have low (1-2) gynecological years in 10.7% and older teenagers in 3.9%. There is no difference in the frequency of threatened abortions, EPH gestosis, placenta removal, and uterine exploration between the groups of younger and older, teenagers, but(More)
The authors have studied pregnancy, delivery and early neonatal status of macrosomic infants (> or = 4000 g) delivered between January 1, 1984, and December 31, 1992. The control group comprised age--and parity--matched pregnant women and their newborns weighing 3000 to 3999 g. From 9980 singleton pregnancies, 2021 (20.3%) macrosomics were delivered. The(More)
The authors have analyzed the prevention of Rh-immunization from 1972 to 1983. Results are presented in two six-year periods, i.e. from 1972 to 1977 and from 1978 to 1983. Prevention was applied to all rh-negative women, who have been delivered from a rh-negative baby in their first childbirth (with negative sensibilization tests). Anti D IgG was also(More)
