An 8-Year Review Of Major Congenital Abnormalities In A Tertiary Hospital In Lagos, Nigeria

Abstract:

Background: Congenital abnormalities are defects present at birth and are increasingly becoming an important cause of neonatal mortality. They can also result in disability in majority of the survivors. Objective: To describe the pattern and outcome of major congenital abnormalities (MCA) in a tertiary hospital in Lagos, Nigeria.

Methods: The labour ward and labour ward theatre delivery records and admission records of the in-born ward of the neonatal unit of a tertiary hospital were reviewed retrospectively from January 2007 to December 2014. The MCA were classified according to the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, (ICD-10). Multiple abnormalities were counted once by the system with the most major anomaly. Abnormalities were grouped according to organ systems, sex and yearly distribution. Statistical analysis was based on systemic type, and neonatal outcome.
