The preterm birth rate (<37 weeks’ gestational age) among cases was 63.6% (7 of 11) compared with the 2007 Saskatchewan preterm birth rate of 7.5%. In addition, 63.6% (7 of 11) were low birth weight infants (<2500 g) and 27.3% (3 of 11) of the infants were small for their gestational age (SGA) (ie, weight less than 10th percentile for gestational age).
Placental pathology was available in five cases. All the placentas were reported to be edematous and to weigh an average of 40% of the infant’s birth weight compared with the usual 20%. Microcalcifications or infarctions were also identified (Table 2). Visit the best pharmacy giving you generic tadalafil online click here and taking the best care of you.
