Gian Paolo Mandruzzato
Sarcina suprapurtata (mai mult decat 42 de saptamani – 294 de zile) este considerata un risc crescut pentru fat, mama si nou nascut. Acest concept a fost raportat recent in 2 documente scrise de institutii respectate. Daca aceste concepte sunt adevarate nasterea trebuie declansata inainte ca varsta gestationala avansata sa fie atinsa.
Abstract – POST-TERM PREGNANCIES: IS IT THE TIME TO REASSESS THE RISKS?
Historically postterm(PT) pregnancies (lasting more than 42 weeks-294 days) are considered as a condition of increased risk for the fetus, the mother and the newborn. This concept is reported also in 2 documents recently produced by respected Institutions(1.2)
If this belief is considered as true the logical answer should be to deliver before the gestational age of increased risk is reached. Therefore it is fundamental to assess if, in otherwise uncomplicated PT pregnancies, there is really an increased risk requiring a planned delivery.
