Although up to 2% of women undergo surgery during pregnancy, teratogenic effects of general anesthesia have not been adequately studied.
Recently, an association between first-trimester operations and central nervous system defects has been described.
This issue was explored in a population-based case-control study.
Case patients included live-born and stillborn infants with central nervous system defects born to residents of metropolitan Atlanta, Ga, between 1968 and 1980.
Control patients included normal babies frequency matched to case patients by race, birth hospital, and period of birth.
