Abstract
This is a descriptive prospective study conducted in Soba University Hospital Feto-Maternal Unit in the period from January to October 2002, including 70 women diagnosed as having oligohydramnios. The aim was to evaluate the maternal and fetal outcome of the pregnancies complicated by oligohydramnios. The results reflected that the incidence of pregnancy complications was high, (22.86 %) for intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and hypertension (HTN), while isolated IUGR occurred in (12.86 %) and premature prelabour rupture of membranes (PPROM) in (21.42 %). The rate of caesarean section (C/S) was (60%) and that of emergency caesarean section (EM/C/S) was (55.71%), preterm delivery occurred in (50 %) of the cases. (51.43 %) of the newborns were small for gestational age (SGA). Meconium stained amniotic fluid occurred in (11.43%). The overall perinatal mortality rate (PNMR) was (14.28%). While the incidence of stillbirths (8.57%). The incidence of congenital anomalies was found to be (7.14 %). Finally the incidence of neonatal resuscitation and neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) admission was found to be (50 %) in the study population.
