Authors: Kashanian M, Eshraghi N, Rahimi M, Sheikhansari N, Javanmanesh F Abstract A double-blind randomised trial was conducted on women with gestational age of 40-42 weeks of pregnancy and Bishop score of more than 5. The first group received oxytocin infusion and the second group received a titrated oral solution of misoprostol. Then, the two groups were compared by the primary outcome (the number of deliveries in the first 24 hours of intervention).

The objectives were to examine pregnancy outcomes in adolescent primigravida and to determine the effects of adolescent pregnancy on pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). A retrospective analysis of pregnancy outcomes was carried out in 2440 adolescent primigravida, compared with 14,259 primigravida aged 20-29 years. The adolescents had significantly higher rates of maternal death, maternal heart disease, PIH, puerperal infection, chorioamnionitis, urinary tract infection, foetal anomaly, preterm delivery, low birth weight, low Apgar scores and stillbirth. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that both old...
