  • Maternal and neonatal outcomes of diabetes in pregnancy in urban women of
           Sri Lanka : a retrospective cohort study

    • Authors: T R N Fernando
      Abstract: Introduction: Maternal diabetes has been recognised for adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes. Aims of this study were to the mode of delivery, maternal morbidity, neonatal morbidity and mortality in pregnant diabetes (DM) women with normal pregnant women.
      Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study. Data has been gathered from medical records of diabetes (DM) delivered in ward 5, Castle Street Hospital (CSHW), during six months period from 15th May 2012. Patients with compare previously known DM and Gestational DM (GDM) delivered in this unit were included. Parity matched control sample was selected by convenient samling to compare the outcomes.Results: A total of 270 mothers were enrolled. There were 135 women in each group. Polyhydramnios and pregnancy induced hypertension was found in significantly higher proportion of women in the DM group (p<0.05). Induction of labour rate was significantly higher in the DM group compared to the controls. Elective caesarean section rate was significantly higher in the DM group but there was no difference in the emergency caesarean rates in the two groups. Rates of prematurity, low birth weight, macrosomia, intrauterine growth restriction, still births and neonatal deaths were not significantly different in the two groups. Neonatal pyrexia and neonatal hypoglycaemia were significantly higher in the DM group compared to the controls (p<0.05). From the DM group there were more admissions (n=5) to neonatal unit with prematurity than the control group (n=1). Conclusion: As expected induction of labour rates and elective caesarean rates were higher among mothers with gestational diabetes. However, there was no significant difference of macrosomia but increased neonatal hypoglycaemia and pyrexia among GDM was noted in this study.

  • Environmental and occupational exposure to toxicants and sperm parameters
           of men investigated for infertility

    • Authors: G U S Wijesekara, D M S Fernando, S Wijerathna, N Bandara
      Abstract: Objective: The study aimed to determine the association between environmental and occupational exposure to toxicants and semen parameters of men investigated for infertility.Methods: Exposure information was obtained using interviewer administered questionnaire with informed consent. WHO guidelines and cut off values were used in analyzing the sperm parameters. The parametric and non-parametric data were analysed using t- test and chi-square test respectively. Mean semen parameters between groups exposed to different toxicants were compared using one way ANOVA.Results: In the study population, 53.9% of men were exposed to toxicants through environmental or occupational sources. Exposures were mainly to petroleum products (30.2%), industrial chemicals (16.9%) and agrochemicals (6.8%).The mean values of sperm concentration, progressive motility, normal forms and viability of subjects exposed to petroleum products were lower compared to non exposed group with significant differences in normal morphological forms [31.1 (18.46)%] vs. [38.1 (17.90)%] (p=0.02) and viability [46.6(22.26)%] vs. [55.2 (19.50)%] (p=0.02). All the sperm parameters were lower in the exposed group, with a significant difference in sperm morphology [33.5 (17.1)%] vs. [38.1(17.9)%] (p=0.03) and sperm viability [49.3 (19.4)%] vs. [55.2 (19.5)%] (p=0.02) compared to non exposed group.Conclusion: Occupational and environmental exposure to reproductive toxicants is associated with poor semen quality with significant reduction in normal forms and viability of sperm.
