Tabs Dunja, Vejnović Tihomir, Kopitović Vesna, Tabs Nada

Introduction. The aim of our study was to describe labour characteristics after intracytoplasmic sperm injection programe. This is the first study of those deliveries at the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad. Patients and methods. Subjects were 73 parturients and their babies from the intracy­toplasmic sperm injection programe (48 singletons, 22 twins and 3 triplets), delivered from January 1st, 2001 to December 31st, 2006. Results. At the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad, 0.65% of all deliveries are those from assisted reproductive programes. 30.67% of all labours after assisted reproductive programes are after intracytoplasmic sperm injection. One half of all labours after intracytoplasmic sperm injection are twins. The mean age of women is 33-34. More than 95% of all babies were delivered by Cesarean section. Discussion. The most frequent pathologies in labours after intracytoplasmic sperm injection are hypertensive disorders and premature rup­ture of membranes. There is still a matter of debate what is a real cause for those pathologies, especially for hypertension (age of woman, laboratory factors and/or induction of ovulation). Conclusion. At the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad, one third of all deliveries after assisted reproductive programe are after intracytoplasmic sperm injection. The most frequent pathologies after intracytoplasmic sperm injection are hypertensive disorders, which is similar to findings of other authors. The mean age of women is also similar to the mean European age of women after intracytoplasmic sperm injection. .
