Objectives: To identify the fetomaternal complications in patients with Eclampsia and severe preeclampsia patients in association with induction to the delivery interval.
Methods: This descriptive observational study was conducted From June to December 2019 in the department of obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar, Pakistan. Antenatal patients with Eclampsia and pre-Eclampsia were included. IBM SPSS, Version 23.0 was used for data analysis, and tests were applied to find an association between induction to delivery interval and fetomaternal complications, chi-square test was applied and P -value < 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: The final cohort comprised 60 women with a mean age of 28.72±6.02. Most Maternal complications were 25% (n= 15) seen in more than 18hr duration from induction to delivery, deranged renal function was the most common maternal complicated ion 13% ( n= 8), Pearson chi-square value of 0.01 shows a highly significant association between an increase in induction to delivery duration and maternal complications while stillbirth was most frequent fetal complication 13.3% ( n= 8A ). A P-value of 0.6 shows a non-significant association between induction to delivery duration and fetal complications
Conclusion: Our study concludes that with an increase in induction to delivery time, maternal and fetal complication increases.
