Trends in perinatal mortality rates at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria

, : Trends in perinatal mortality rates at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. East African Medical Journal 61(6): 461-469

Consecutive perinatal deaths (560) among 13,629 deliveries over a 5 yr period at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) were analyzed. The overall perinatal mortality was 33.7/1000. This figure was significantly lower (P < 0.001) than that (80.9/1000) for the previous period, 1974-1976. There were several factors responsible for the reduction in the perinatal mortality rate: these include; the introduction of simple perinatal health care measures in the obstetrics and neonatal services; reduction in fetal deaths from antepartum hemorrhage (APH) and decrease in the incidence of neonatal asphyxia.

The dorso-ventral axis is specified in vertebrates through the formation of a dorsal signaling center known as the Spemann organizer. This process depends on signal transduction by beta-catenin that can be regulated by secreted Wnt proteins. Recen...
