DC Secară, AV Uzunov, O Munteanu, A Baroș, MM Cîrstoiu


Rezumat: Pregnancy among teenagers represents a public health problem which has a huge impact for the mother, newborn, society and even for the new generations. When it comes to pregnancy in adolescents, we see that obstetrical complications represent the main cause of death in this population. Also, the newborns may have complications like premature birth or intrauterine growth restriction. Because the increase incidence of pregnant adolescents occurs in low- and middle-income countries, the nutritional status has a negative impact on the mother and the fetus. We performed a retrospective study in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the University Emergency Hospital, Bucharest, between the15th of April 2020 and the 15th of April 2022 that included 258 adolescents who gave birth in our unit. The aim of the study was to analyze the risk of premature birth in newborns from adolescent mother with anemia compared to adolescent patients without anemia, so we divided the patients into two groups. The premature birth was established by the gestational age and the neonatal status was evaluated using the Apgar score at 1 minute. Regarding the results, adolescent patients with anemia had a higher risk of premature birth compared to those who were not diagnosed with anemia.
Cuvinte cheie: adolescents, pregnancy, anemia, fetal outcome.
