Abstract (English)  :

OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to estimate the risk of fetal and maternal complications associated with postterm delivery in Denmark.

STUDY DESIGN: A cross-sectional study that used records from the Danish Medical Birth Registry from 1978 to 1993 was performed. All women with registered prolonged pregnancy (n = 78,022) and a 5% random sample of all women who gave birth (n = 47,021) were linked to the Danish National Discharge Register.We established a postterm group of 77,956 singleton deliveries and a term group of 34,140 singleton spontaneous deliveries.Logistic regression models were used to analyze data.

RESULTS: The risk of perinatal and obstetric complications was high in postterm delivery compared with term delivery (adjusted odds ratios between 1.2 and 3.1).The risk of perinatal death was 1.33 (1.05-1.68).

CONCLUSION: Postterm delivery was associated with significantly increased risks of perinatal and maternal complications in Denmark in the period from 1978 to 1993.
