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)
At the Medical Central Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Sibenik over 1970-1991 period there were 26,116 deliveries (multiple births excluded), of which 254 (0.97%) occurred in grand multiparas (five and more deliveries). The authors have found that the number of grand multiparas decreased by 38.3% (P < 0.001) over the past eleven years. Control(More)
At the Medical Centre Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics in Sibenik there were 26 116 deliveries over the 1970-1991 period, of which 1502 (5.75%) occurred in women aged 35 years and older. Among them 254 (0.97%) were primiparas, 1074 (4.11%) multiparas (two to four deliveries) and 174 (0.6%) grand multiparas (five deliveries and more). The control(More)
The authors established a risk factor scale for pregnancy, delivery, and newborns: the risk factor score up to 9 meaning a low risk, from 10 to 19 a moderate risk, and from 20 onwards a high risk. 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)
From 1971 to 1988, out of 22001 deliveries (multiple pregnancies excluded) 212 (0.96%) occurred in multiparas with five or more deliveries. The control group included 7340 pluriparas (two to four deliveries) from the same period. In 82.1% cases the multiparas were para 5 and 6, and 63 (29.7%) were less than 34 years of age. 15.9% had no antenatal visit; for(More)
In a ten-year period the frequency of pregnant women with heart disorders amounted to 0.50%. In 83.87% of cases the disorders were acquired and in 16.13% congenital. According to the functional condition of the heart, 95% of the women observed belonged to the first and the second stage. In 82.26% the deliveries were spontaneously vaginal. The frequency of(More)
The authors analysed the frequency of Rh immunization from 1972 to 1983. The incidence of Rh-immunized women who after the birth of a Rh (D) positive child were not given anti-D immunoglobulin G and in subsequent pregnancies gave birth to a Rh (D) positive child was found to amount to 11.76%, while in women who were given anti-D immunoglobulin D this(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)
Pregnancy, delivery and the newborn infant of 212 old primiparas (aged greater than or equal to 35 years) and of 1968 age-matched old multiparas as controls were studied for the 1970-1989 period. The frequency of old primiparas and old multiparas was 0.9% and 4.1%, respectively, with no change for the 1970-1979 (1.0%) and 1980-1989 (0.8%) periods. The mean(More)
