What was the cause for IUFD?
Hello, Mokoginta, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
IUFD or intra uterine fetal death is a condition in which the fetus dies while in the womb. As many as 25-60% of IUFD cases have no known cause. However, there are several things that increase the risk of developing IUFD, seen from the mother, fetus and placenta factors.
1. Maternal factors: Postmature pregnancy (> 42 weeks), infection, hypertension, preeclampsia / eclampsia, blood disorders, diabetes, old age (over 35 years), uterine rupture (torn uterus), lupus disease, injury to the mother or death in the mother. Mothers who are obese and who smoke also have a higher risk of developing IUFD.
2. Fetal factors: twins (> 1 fetus in utero), congenital abnormalities (congenital), genetic disorders, IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction) or stunted fetal growth, fetal infection, hydrops fetalis.
3. Placental factors: talipusat injury, disorders of the placenta such as: placental abruption, placental insufficiency, vasa previa, bleeding, premature rupture of membranes.
To find out the exact cause of IUFD experienced by the mother, more complete data must be obtained, such as a medical history and pregnancy of the mother, examination of infection in the mother and fetus, evaluation of the placenta, genetic tests, blood tests, and other tests related to the factors involved. increase the risk of IUFD as listed above.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
