Perinatal mortality in hypertensive disorders of Jewish and Bedouin populations.
The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare the perinatal mortality of Jewish and Bedouin hypertensive patients in the Southern area of Israel.
Since almost 100% of the deliveries took place in the Soroka Medical Center, the sole hospital of the area, the computerized files of our department during 5 years (1986-1990) were used in the study.
Data on the frequency of hypertensive disorder types, rates of stillbirths and neonatal deaths, maternal age and parity, pre-term and term deliveries, prenatal care, intrauterine growth retardation, mode of delivery and fetal sex, were analysed according to ethnicity.
Among a total of 40 780 deliveries, 2343 were of hypertensive pregnancies.
