Background and Objectives: Preeclampsia is the third leading cause of maternal mortality in the world. Despite extensive studies, its etiology remains unknown. Determining the incidence and the risk factors of the disorder in different regions can be useful in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of complications. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of preeclampsia and its related factors in the women admitted to obstetrics and gynecology ward of Shahid Sayyad Shirazi Hospital.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, 572 high risk pregnant women referred to obstetrics and gynecology department of Shahid Sayyad Shirazi Teaching Hospital in Gorgan during April to March 2013 were evaluated using valid checklist. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 16 and descriptive statistics.
Results: Among total of 572 records, 43 women were known preeclampsia cases and 17 of them were eclampsia. The incidence of preeclampsia was 7.51% and ecclampsia was 2.97%. The mean age of hospitalized mothers due to preeclampsia was 29.11 years. 55.8% of mothers were in age range of 26-35 years. Five percents of the mothers had a history of cardiovascular disease and 28.3% had a history of hypertension.
Conclusions: Maternal hospitalization due to preeclampsia was high among other serious pregnancy problems. The prevalence of preeclampsia in our study population was significantly different from global statistics requiring further investigation.
