Abstract:
1991 was another busy year with a marginal increase in the number of mothers delivered, but a very substantial increase in gynaecological activity. A total of 7,077 mothers were delivered during 1991 , an increase of 0.2% compared to 1990. The number of primigravidae delivered was 2,322, an increase of 3.1% over the previous year. A total of 6,277 infants weighing 500 grams or more were delivered by 6,178 mothers. Eight hundred and seventy seven mothers miscarried before 24 weeks gestation. There were 4 molar pregnancies and 18 ectopic pregnancies. Two mothers died during the course of pregnancy. The first was a 31 year old from Libya who died from overwhelming infection associated with a spontaneous miscarriage at 18 weeks gestation. She died after a prolonged stay in the intensive care unit of a general hospital. The second mother was also from Libya and she died approximately four weeks following caesarean delivery for eclampsia, also following a prolonged stay in the intensive care unit of a general hospital. Both these tragic deaths occurred despite the full panoply of modern intensive care.
