Abstract
OBJECTIVE
The aim of this study was to investigate the potential prognostic factors and it's relating factors of patients who were hospitalized for management of preterm labor. METHODS: In this study, we retrospectively reviewed the records of 249 mothers who experienced the admission of preterm labor and delivered single live birth from January 2005 to May 2011 at our hospital. For our analyses, the mothers were divided into two groups according to delivery age; preterm birth group and full term birth group. And full term birth group was divided into two groups which had poor prognostic factors and compared with each other groups. RESULTS: In our cohort, there was high incidence of small for gestational age in full term birth group compared with preterm birth group significantly (19.6% vs. 9.4%; P=0.028). And potential factors related to small for gestational age in full term birth group were early gestational age at 1st admission, low body mass index (BMI) in mothers and high highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) at 1st admission. CONCLUSION: Gestational age at 1st admission, mother's BMI and hs-CRP at admission were significantly related to small for gestational age in full term birth who were hospitalized for management of preterm labor.
Key Words: Preterm labor, Small for gestational age, Highly sensitive C-reactive protein
