AbstractBackground: We aimed to assess the perinatal outcome in oligohydramnios diagnosed at term.
Materials & methods: A total 100 patients of oligohydramnios diagnosed at term was enrolled. Complete demographic and clinical details of all the subjects were obtained. On admission a detailed history was taken, clinical examination was performed and gestational age assessed. Perinatal outcome was recorded. Apgar score was also noted at 1 min and 5 mins. All the results were recorded and analysed using SPSS software.
Results: While evaluating the perinatal outcome, it was seen that birth weight was less than 2.5 Kg in 71 percent of the subjects. Apgar score was less than 7 at 1 min and at 5 min in 28 percent and 3 percent of the subjects respectively. Early neonatal mortality was seen in 3 percent of the subjects. While a single subject showed presence of still birth.
Conclusion: As Oligohydramnios is associated with a higher rate of pregnancy complications, in the presence of oligohydramnios, thorough evaluation of the gravida for hypertension, pre-eclampsia, diabetes, chronic abruption, premature rupture of membrane etc should be done.
