Incidence, obstetric risk factors and pregnancy outcome of preterm placental abruption: a retrospective analysis
To determine obstetric risk factors for the occurrence of preterm placental abruption and to investigate its subsequent perinatal outcome. A retrospective comparison of all singleton preterm deliveries complicated with placental abruption, between the years 1990-1998, to all singleton preterm deliveries without placental abruption, in the Soroka University Medical Center. Placental abruption complicated 300 (5.1%) of all preterm deliveries (n = 5934). A backstep multivariable analysis found the following factors to be independently correlated with the occurrence of preterm placental abruption: grandmultiparity (more than five deliveries), early gestational age, severe pregnancy-induced hypertension, previous second-trimester bleeding and non-vertex presentation. These pregnancies had a significantly lower rate of preterm premature rupture of membranes than preterm pregnancies without placental abruption. Pregnancies complicated with preterm placental abruption had significantly higher rates of cord prolapse, non-reassuring fetal heart rate patterns, congenital malformations, Cesarean deliveries, perinatal mortality, Apgar scores lower than 7 at 5 min, postpartum anemia and delayed discharge from the hospital than did preterm de...Continue Reading

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.
