Abstract

ARIAS MACIAS, Guillermo; TORRES, Mirka Rosa; PEREZ VALDES, Noel  and  MILIAN VIDA, Miriam. Factores prenatales relacionados con la prematuridad. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2001, vol.73, n.1, pp.5-10. ISSN 0034-7531.

130 mothers and their premature infants with their corresponding control group delivered at "Justo Legón Padilla" Provincial Gynecoobstetric Teaching Hospital, in Pinar del Río, from February to July, 1998, were studied aimed at analyzing some perinatal factors connected with prematurity. The following variables were analyzed: maternal age, parity, weight at the beginning of pregnancy, maternal height, intergenesic period, gestational age, oligohydramnios, maternal hypertension and sex of the child. It was proved that maternal age under 17, low maternal height, the oligohydramnios, vulvar sepsis and the intergenesic period of more than 5 years had significant results for the birth of preterm infants.

Keywords : INFANT, LOW BIRTH WEIGHT [growth & development]; INFANT, PREMATURE; GESTATIONAL AGE; PREGNANCY IN ADOLESCENCE; HEIGHT WEIGHT.
