Maternal, fetal, and newborn complications associated with newborn intracranial hemorrhage



Maternal, fetal, and newborn complications associated with newborn intracranial hemorrhage



American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 154(2): 345-351



Two hundred twenty newborn infants with one or more fetal or newborn complications and 54 newborn infants without fetal or newborn complications were prospectively studied to assess the relationship between maternal, obstetric, fetal, and newborn complications and intracranial hemorrhage. Intracranial hemorrhage occurred in 47 newborn infants with fetal or newborn complications (21%) and in one infant with no fetal or newborn complications (2%). Maternal and obstetric complications, duration of labor, and mode of delivery were not associated with intracranial hemorrhage. Newborn immaturity at delivery is an important factor in the occurrence of intracranial hemorrhage. There is little evidence that fetal hypoxia is a contributing factor. Severe respiratory complications and major infections are newborn complications associated with intracranial hemorrhage.
