  1. Cocaine use as a risk factor for abdominal pregnancy.

    Article - En anglais

    Failure to diagnose abdominal pregnancies can have disastrous morbidity/mortality consequences for mother and fetus.

    To make the diagnosis of abdominal pregnancy requires that the physician have a high index of suspicion and that he or she have a good understanding of the risk factors of abdominal pregnancy.

    This article presents data suggesting that maternal cocaine use is a risk factor for abdominal pregnancy, reviews the literature on the maternal/fetal effects of maternal cocaine use and the risk factors of abdominal pregnancy, and analyzes 55 cases of abdominal pregnancy.

    Maternal cocaine use correlated with a 20% rate of increase in the incidence of abdominal pregnancy compared with the 70% rate of decrease in the « before cocaine » time period.

    Recommendations are offered for management.
