Frequency, Risk Factors And Feto-Maternal Outcomes Of Abruptio Placentae In Northern Tanzania: A Registry-Based Retrospective Cohort Study

BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, 2015

Findings showed the frequency of abruptio placentae is comparable with local and international studies. Chronic hypertension, pre-eclampsia, prior cesarean section delivery, prior abruptio placentae, poor attendance to antenatal care and high parity were independently associated with abruptio placentae. Abruptio placentae was associated with adverse maternal and foetal outcomes. Clinicians should identify risk factors for abruptio placentae during prenatal care when managing pregnant women to prevent adverse maternal and foetal outcomes.
