OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of birth defects on preterm birth and low birth weight. METHODS: Data from a large, prospective multi-center trial, the First and Second Trimester Evaluation of Risk (FASTER) Trial, were examined. All live births at more than 24 weeks of gestation with data on outcome and confounders were divided into two comparison groups: 1) those with a chromosomal or structural abnormality (birth defect) and 2) those with no abnormality detected in chromosomes or anatomy… Expand
The Association Between Major Birth Defects and Preterm Birth
TLDR
Evaluating the association between preterm birth and major birth defects by maternal and infant characteristics and specific types of birth defects could suggest appropriate interventions to reduce both pre term birth and birth defects. Expand
Epidemiology of Birth Defects in Very Low Birth Weight Infants in Japan.
TLDR
Detailed information about mortality and morbidity of preterm VLBW infants with birth defects in Japan should be useful for genetic counseling as well as prenatal and neonatal care, with the limitation that it lacked information about the timing of diagnosis, abortion or stillbirth. Expand
A spectrum project: preterm birth and small-for-gestational age among infants with birth defects
TLDR
Infants with BDs are more likely than controls to be born prematurely and SGA, and findings from this study present additional evidence demonstrating a complex interaction between the development of BDs, prematurity and intrauterine growth. Expand
Perinatal outcomes associated with low birth weight in a historical cohort
TLDR
LBW infants showed more frequently signs of perinatal compromise such as abnormal amniotic fluid volume, nonreassuring patterns of fetal heart rate, malformation, lower Apgar scores and lower gestational age at birth. Expand
Preterm birth in pregnancies complicated by major congenital malformations: a population-based study.
TLDR
The risk of preterm birth in pregnancies complicated by 1 or more of 8 major congenital malformations significantly increase PTB risk, which varies by malformation type and is higher with multiple mal Formations. Expand
Risk of birth defects increased in multiple births.
TLDR
An increased risk of birth defects in multiple births compared with singletons was confirmed and there was a similar proportion of single malformation, male children, and the mother living in a city. Expand
Birth Defect and it’s Impact in Neonatal Health : A Review
TLDR
Increasing awareness about maternal care during pregnancy, educational programs on birth defect and the consequences of consanguineous marriages need to be highlighted to decrease the incidence of birth defects and their co-morbidities as well as mortality. Expand
Mortality among infants with birth defects: Joint effects of size at birth, gestational age, and maternal race/ethnicity.
TLDR
The joint effect of gestational age and size at birth had greatest impact on childhood mortality, relative to non-Hispanic -whites, NH-blacks, and Hispanics had a 51 and 10% greater risk of death during early childhood, respectively. Expand
Association of preterm birth with long-term survival, reproduction, and next-generation preterm birth.
TLDR
In persons born in Norway in 1967-1988, preterm birth was associated with diminished long-term survival and reproduction and Reproduction was diminished for index participants born preterm. Expand
Association of Preterm Birth With Long-Term Survival, Reproduction, and Next-Generation Preterm Birth
TLDR
Using a national population-based registry containing birth and death data for more than 1 million men and women, the objective was to determine how preterm birth affects long-term survival, subsequent reproduction, and nextgeneration pre term birth. Expand

Risk for birth defects among premature infants: a population-based study.
TLDR
The risk for birth defects is increased in premature infants, and the morbidity and mortality associated with a particular defect may be significantly altered by the presence of prematurity. Expand
Prevalence of birth defects among low-birth-weight infants. A population study.
TLDR
The higher risk of birth defects among low-birth-weight infants demonstrates that birth defects contribute to excess morbidity amongLow birth weight infants. Expand
Epidemiology of preterm birth
TLDR
Over the past 20-30 years advances in perinatal care have improved outcomes for infants born after short gestations, but there is still uncertainty and incomplete recording of estimates of gestation in developed countries. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that low folate levels during the second trimester of pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of preterm birth is supported. Expand
Outcome after preterm delivery of infants antenatally diagnosed with congenital heart disease.
TLDR
There is a very high morbidity and mortality rate in this group, particularly for those with extracardiac/karyotypic anomalies, which should be reflected in decisions over elective preterm delivery and when counseling parents. Expand

TLDR
Although the AFI identification of polyhydramnios was helpful in identifying LGA fetuses and fetuses at risk for congenital abnormalities, oligohydramnio was a rather weak predictor of poor perinatal outcome. Expand

TLDR
In vitro fertilization patients should be advised of the increased risk for adverse perinatal outcomes and should not only manage these pregnancies as high risk but also avoid iatrogenic harm caused by elective preterm labor induction or cesarean. Expand

Maternal cocaine use during early pregnancy as a risk factor for congenital urogenital anomalies.
TLDR
Maternal cocaine use during early pregnancy was defined as reported use at any time from 1 month before the pregnancy began through the first 3 months of pregnancy and there was no statistically significant association with genital organ defects. Expand
