Considering the prevalence of placenta previa and its maternal and foetal knovm consequences, this study was achieved to find out the epidemiology of placenta previa in pregnant women referred to obstetric centre of Kermanshah University of medical sciences (mo'tazedi hospital) in 1996.
The society under study was all referrers to mo'tazedi hospital. The women who certainly had placenta previa, were studied in connection with age, job, number of pregnancy, number of parturition, history of surgical operation on womb, disease during pregnancy, hemoglobin and hematocrit variations, and infant characteristics such as foetal age, sex, weight and apgar score.
During the research among 1067 women who referred to the centre for parturition 33 cases had placenta previa. In other words, the prevalence of placenta previa was 0.31%. 27.3% of those with placenta previa had history of cesarean section and 54.4% preterm parturition. The pregnancy age was less than 37 weeks. 12.15% of the fetuses were dead. Hysterectom y was performed in 3% of the patients.
This research revealed that the prevalence of placemaprevia in the centre was similar in most of other studies and different in some cases which may be due to its contributing factors in those centers or their better diagnosing facilities. Further researches are recommended to determine the placenta previa risk factors.
