maternal and perinatal outcomes of macrosomic baby

Vidushi Kulshrestha, Nutan Agarwal
Diabetes in pregnancy starts affecting the foetus even in the pre-conception period. The complications encountered in third trimester are foetal macrosomia and intrauterine foetal demise; birth of a macrosomic baby further leads to shoulder dystocia, birth trauma, brachial plexus injury. Additionally, pregnancies with overt/pregestational diabetes may be complicated with foetal growth restriction, congenital abnormalities diagnosed in third trimester and foetal hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Even minor degrees of hyperglycaemia is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome...

BACKGROUND: Fetal macrosomia is defined as birth weight ≥4000 g. Several risk factors have been shown to be associated with fetal macrosomia. There has been an increased incidence of macrosomic babies delivered and the antecedent complications. This study assessed the risk factors, maternal and neonatal complications of fetal macrosomia in comparison with normal birth weight neonates. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted at the Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) maternity and neonatal wards...

BACKGROUND: Women with a suspected large-for-dates fetus or a fetus with suspected macrosomia (birthweight greater than 4000 g) are at risk of operative birth or caesarean section. The baby is also at increased risk of shoulder dystocia and trauma, in particular fractures and brachial plexus injury. Induction of labour may reduce these risks by decreasing the birthweight, but may also lead to longer labours and an increased risk of caesarean section. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of a policy of labour induction at or shortly before term (37 to 40 weeks) for suspected fetal macrosomia on the way of giving birth and maternal or perinatal morbidity...

BACKGROUND: To determine the incidence and risk factors of fetal macrosomia and maternal and perinatal outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a 1-year prospective case-control study of singleton pregnancies in a Nigerian tertiary hospital. Only women who gave consent were recruited for the study. The maternal and perinatal outcomes in women who delivered macrosomic infants (birth weight ≥ 4000 g) were compared with the next consecutive delivery of normal birth weight (2500-3999 g) infants...

The objective of this study was to assess the impact of increased pre-pregnancy maternal body mass index (BMI) on perinatal outcomes in term, singleton pregnancies who received prenatal care in community-based practices. The sample of 1996 infants included in the study was drawn from the All Our Babies Study, a prospective pregnancy cohort from Calgary. Multivariable logistic regression explored the relationship between the main outcomes, infant birth weight, Apgar score, admission to neonatal intensive care (NICU) and newborn duration of hospitalization, and BMI prior to pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: This study examines the effect of low daily physical activity levels and overweight/obesity in pregnancy on delivery and perinatal outcomes. METHODS: A prospective cohort study combining manually collected postnatal notes with anonymised data linkage. A total of 466 women sampled from the Growing Up in Wales: Environments for Healthy Living study. Women completed a questionnaire and were included in the study if they had an available Body mass index (BMI) (collected at 12 weeks gestation from antenatal records) and/or a physical activity score during pregnancy (7-day Actigraph reading)...

BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) affects a significant number of women each year and is associated with a wide range of adverse outcomes for women and their babies. Dietary counselling is the main strategy in managing GDM, but it remains unclear which dietary therapy is best. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of different types of dietary advice for women with GDM on pregnancy outcomes. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (17 May 2012) and the WOMBAT Perinatal Trials Registry (17 April 2012)...

BACKGROUND: Macrosomia is a risk factor for adverse delivery outcomes. We investigated the prevalence, risk factors, and delivery outcomes of babies with macrosomia in 23 developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. METHODS: We analysed data from WHO's Global Survey on Maternal and Perinatal Health, which was a facility-based cross-sectional study that obtained data for women giving birth in 373 health facilities in 24 countries in Africa and Latin America in 2004-05, and in Asia in 2007-08...

OBJECTIVES: Fetal macrosomia is defined as a fetus that is of large size for gestational age, i.e. equal to or greater than the 90th percentile of weight. There is some evidence of increased perinatal mortality and morbidity rates in cases of macrosomia. DESIGN: This is a retrospective study of patients with term pregnancy. We analyzed the deliveries of 508 infants born with birth weight ≥ 4 200 grams and considered them as a study group. The deliveries of newborns with birth weight less than 4 000 g constituted the control group (330 cases)...

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether prenatal identification of macrosomia (≥4000g) reduces neonatal complications and maternal perineal lesions during delivery. STUDY DESIGN: This historical cohort study (n=14,684 from the National perinatal database of the Audipog Association, France) included women with cephalic singleton term pregnancies. Among the babies born with macrosomia, we compared those who had been identified as such in utero (n=1211) with those who were not (n=13,473)...

BACKGROUND: Macrosomic babies are at increased risk of adverse perinatal outcome and therefore constitute a high risk group of neonates and the incidence appears to be rising. The objective was to determine the incidence of fetal macrosomia, and the perinatal outcome of macrosomic babies, compare with matched term, appropriate weight neonates in the booked antenatal population of the UPTH. METHODS: It was a one year prospective study of the perinatal outcome of singleton babies whose birth weights were 4000 g and above (macrosomia) delivered to booked antenatal mothers in UPTH between 1st October 2003 and 30th September 2004, comparing them with term appropriate (2500-3999 g) weight babies...

OBJECTIVE: to assess the association between neighbourhood family income and adverse birth outcomes. METHODS: we conducted a retrospective cohort study of 334 231 singleton births during 2004 and 2006 based on the Niday Perinatal Database from Ontario. Median neighbourhood family incomes from the 2001 Canadian census were linked with the Niday Perinatal Database by dissemination areas. Generalized estimating equations were applied to estimate the odds ratios of adverse birth outcomes associated with lower neighbourhood income, with adjustment for maternal confounding variables at the individual level...
