Abstract

In the present work, 50 pregnant female Balb/c mice (20 control and, 30 infected by Schistosoma haematobium ).are included in the experiment . exposure to cercaria occurs on 10th day of pregnancy(midperiod of pregnancy)with continuous low concentration of cercaria for 5 days. Abortions occur after 7-8days after first exposure (17th-18th day of pregnancy) . Histopahtological studies of the stillbirths revealed very marked changes including Lymphocytic infiltrations within the parenchyma of the alveoli,Congestion, haemorrhage and necrosis in the lung. The main pathological changes in kidney were atrophic glomeruli , rupture of parietal layer of Bowman,s capsule, necrosis and tubular atrophy

الدراسة الحالية شملت(50)من الفئران الحوامل وزعت إلى(20)حامل سيطرة و(30)حامل عرضت للإصابة بطفيلي Schistosoma haematobium, تم تعريض الحوامل للاصابة بالطفيلي في اليوم العاشر من الحمل (نصف فترة الحمل ) وبجرعة قليلة ولكن مستمرة لمدة 5 ايام , وحدثت الاجهاضات بعد 7-8 ايام من اليوم الاول للتعرض (اليوم السابع عشر- اليوم الثامن عشر من الحمل). تبين من الدراسة النسيجية المرضية للمقاطع المأخوذة من الاجنه المجهضة للولادة الأولى تغيرات في نسيج الرئة شملت ارتشاح للخلايا المفاوية ضمن الحويصلات الهوائية واحتقان ونزف ونخر.في حين إن أهم التغيرات المرضية في الكلية شملت ضمور الكبيبات وتمزق في جدار محفظة بومان وتنخرات وضمور في النبيبات البولية واستجابة التهابية حادة ونزف.

Abstract

Background: Perinatal mortality (PM) rate is an important index of community health condition. A high‑risk pregnancy is one that threatensthe health or the life of the mother and her fetus, during or after the pregnancy and birth. Objective: This study aimed to identify theetiological maternal risk factors and other causes that lead to PM, to calculate the PM rate (PMR) in maternity hospital in Duhok, and tocompare it with the previous rates, and to find out the relationship between maternal socio‑demographic and obstetrics variables with PMR.Materials and Methods: During the study, which was from January to December 2013, the total deliveries were 20281, and the perinataldeaths were 496 cases. Results: The PMR was (24.5%/1000 births), the number of early neonatal deaths were 268 (54%), and it is higherthan stillbirths deaths (fresh and macerated). The most common causes and associated risk factors behind the fresh stillbirths (30.5%).Macerated stillbirths 77 (15.5%), were the main causes of death. The most causes of early neonatal deaths were birth asphyxia (36.6%) andprematurity (34.3%). It was found that most important maternal risk factors for PM are preeclampsia, and obstructed labor. The results ofthe study revealed a significant association between mother’s level of education, occupation, residential area, antenatal care, gestational age,parity, and PM, but revealed a nonsignificant association between the mother’s age and PM. Conclusions: There was a significant relationbetween maternal risk factors and PM, the early diagnosis of these risk factors decreased the PM. The PMR was 24.5/1000 total births in2013, at a maternity hospital in Duhok, It was lower than that of 2004 and 2005. Most of the PM were in the groups of poor antenatal careand their residence from the rural area.
