Abstract

Aim. To conduct a comparative assessment of the prevalence and compatibility of high risk factors of perinatal losses in various cities of Azerbaijan.

The women were divided into groups according to age, the counting number of pregnancy and childbirth, birth-spacing interval. Sample size was 6544 cases in the city Sumgait, 4930 in the city of Ganja, in the city of Shirvan 2066.

Results.In the city of Sumgait, the proportion of childbirths before the age of 18 years was 0.3±0.07%. In Ganja, this figure was higher by more than 19 times (5.9±0.34%). In the provincial city of Shirvan, proportion of childbirths before the age of 18 years (13.0±0.74%) was higher by more than 43 times in comparison with Sumgait, and 2.2 times more than in Ganja. 5.0±0.27% of childbirths in Sumgait, 6.8±0.36% in Ganja and 7.7±0.59% in Shirvan were registered in women older than 34 years. The differences in indicators between Sumgait and Ganja, Sumgait and Shirvan are statistically significant (p

Conclusion. The compatibility and prevalence of the high risk factors of perinatal losses have regional characteristics that should be considered when planning preventive measures and monitoring.
