Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the obstetric and neonatal outcomes of pregnant women delivering large for gestational age (LGA) infants.


Material and Methods: A total of 399 pregnant women giving birth to LGA infants in the Gynecology and Obstetrics Department of Dicle University Medical Faculty Hospital between January 2014 and December 2018 were included in this retrospective study. Demographic features, pregnancy and infant data, delivery type (vaginal delivery/cesarean delivery), and patients’ indications for cesarean section were assessed.


Results: The mean age of the patients was 32.34±6.63, their gravida was 5.16±2.65 and parity was 3.55±2.36. The mean gestational week was 37.12±2.840 weeks and the mean birth weight was 3922.46±643.546 g. Of all patients, diabetes was detected in 28.5%, polyhydramnios in 11.3%, placental invasion anomaly in 4%, and preeclampsia in 9%. While 83.7% (334) of the patients underwent cesarean section, the remaining 16.3% (65) underwent normal delivery. 3.25% (13) of the patients developed complications during delivery. The rate of fetal anomaly was 11.7% (47) in existing pregnancies while the rate of fetal death was 5.01% (20).


Conclusion: A cesarean delivery was performed in the majority of pregnant women with a suspected LGA infant. This group of patients exhibited a very high rate of gestational diabetes mellitus and diabetes mellitus. Existing pregnancies constitute a specifical pregnancy population that should be taken into consideration regarding probable complications and problems with the infant.
