Abstract

Introduction: blood pressure disorders are common during pregnancy. Along with blood loss and infection they are considered as the three fatal factors which also account for a great many of preterm deliveries and pregnancy-related disabilities and mortalities. The prevalence rate of this problem in other countries has been reported to be a maximum of 10 and in Iran it is up to 7. Due to the importance of this issue, the present research aims to investigate the underlying factors of preterm delivery due to pre-eclampsia in women visitors of Shariati hospital in Bandar Abbas in 2011 and 2012. Methodology: this descriptive/analytic study was a cross-sectional retrospective research conducted on 863 pregnant women (167 afflicted with preterm delivery after pre-eclampsia and 696 pregnant women diagnosed with preterm delivery for reasons other than pre-eclampsia). The data were gathered through a checklist containing such information as mother's age, blood type, pre-eclampsia history, systemic disease, preterm delivery pain, etc. SPSS 16 was used to analyze the data. T-test and Chi-squared test were employed as well. P-level was considered to be <.05. Findings: pregnant women afflicted with preterm delivery after pre-eclampsia had a higher average age than those afflicted with preterm delivery for reasons other than pre-eclampsia. The majority of women afflicted with pre-eclampsia belonged to the B+ blood group. Significant divergences were found in terms of these variables: pre-eclampsia history, preterm delivery pain, preterm rupture of the fetal membrane, vaginal bleeding, intrauterine growth restriction, mother's systemic diseases, mother's blood type, history of intrauterine death, amniotic fluid disorders. Conclusion: the probability of affliction with preterm delivery due to pre-eclampsia is increased with intrauterine growth restriction, history of intrauterine death and mother's background diseases. Since pre-eclampsia is accompanied by significant motherly and fetal consequences, timely therapeutic and preventive efforts and instructions for pregnant mothers on pre-natal healthcare can help to reduce severe consequences which threaten mother's and fetus' health.
