Abstract

 Objective: This study was performed to compare the outcomes of pregnancies in women aged 35 years and older with those of 20 to 30 year old women.Materials and Methods: We reviewed the delivery records of 148 mothers aged 35 years and above (case group) who delivered since May 2006 to May 2008 and compared them with 240 younger ones (20-30 year old, control group). Multi-fetal pregnancies, hypertensive women and diabetic women were excluded. Data was analyzed by SPSS and p<0.05 was significant.Results: The mean age for the older group was 37.26±3.62 years and that for the control group was 26.43±4.37 years (p>0.05). The mean duration of gestation was significantly shorter in oldergroup than control group (34. 54±4.37 vs 37.12±2.21, p<0.05). Preterm delivery was observed more frequently in the case group compared with controls (22% vs 9%, p<0.05). The incidences of preeclampsia, placenta abruption andcesarean delivery were significantly higher in the older group than control group (p<0.05). The mean birth weight was 2799±541 g for the older group and 2, 695±647g for the control group (p>0.05). 5-minute Apgar scores of neonates have not significantly different between two groups.Conclusion: Older pregnant women had increased risk of MATERNAL COMPLICATIONS but neonatal outcomes were similar to younger age group.
