  1. Confidential enquiry into maternal deaths in The Netherlands 1983-1992.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To determine the causes of maternal death in The Netherlands.

    Study design 

    Nationwide Confidential Enquiry into the Causes of Maternal Deaths during the period 1983-1992.

    Results 

    Of 192 direct and indirect maternal deaths, 154 (80%) were available for the Enquiry.

    The most frequent direct causes were (pre-) eclampsia, thrombo-embolism, obstetrical haemorrhage and sepsis.

    Cerebro-and cardiovascular disorders were the most frequent indirect causes of death.

    Age above 35 years and parity 3 or more are related to higher maternal mortality.

    Women from non-caucasian origin are more prone to death in comparison to caucasian women.

    Autopsy was performed in 88 cases (57%). Of the 24 women where labour started at home. the place of birth played a significant role in delay in four.

    Conclusions 

    More efforts should be made to have a higher percentage than 80% available for the Confidential Enquiry as in the UK where only 1-4% of deaths are not available for similar purposes.

    Also. the autopsy rate of 57% is much lower than in the UK (82%). Special strategies should be developed to improve maternal health of populations at higher risk such as women of high age and parity and immigrant populations.
