Asir trauma symposium. Abha (SAU), 1989/11/29.
The pattern and associations of 62 instances of external birth trauma (EBT) in 57 of 2222 consecutive hospital-born neonates were studied.
Macrosomia and vaginal instrumental or breech delivery were identified as significant risk factors for EBT.
In contrast to previous reports, subgaleal hemorrhage (SGH) was the predominant form of trauma (n=33) and it was associated with vacuum application in 28 of 33 (85%) neonates.
Brachial plexus palsy (BPP) (n=10) occurred with the highest frequency (6.4%) after breech delivery.
Fractures were uncommon.
Multiple injuries (10 items in 5 babies) were mainly associated with vacuum extraction.
