Pre-eclampsia is a multi-systemic disorder whose cause remains unknown and is unique to human pregnancy. It is the major culprit in many births related adverse outcomes including intrauterine growth restriction. In this study, we observed the demographics, mode of delivery and pregnancy outcome of 49 patients that were admitted to our hospital with severe pre-eclampsia and IUGR. Most common age group of study subjects were found to be between 18-25 years (n = 22) while pregnancies were usually terminated after crossing 34 weeks gestation (n = 22). More than half the patients had to undergo caesarian sections (n = 27) followed by spontaneous vaginal delivery in 19 cases. Eleven cases needed medications for termination of pregnancy using mifepristone alone (9.1%), mifepristone followed by misoprostol (63.6%); and intrauterine catheter in combination with mifepristone or misoprostol (27.3%). A minimum of four hours and a maximum of 49 hours were spent between induction of labor and the delivery of the fetus. The overall survival rate of the fetuses was 77.6%. If predicted early and managed adequately, feto-maternal morbidity and mortality can be reduced among severe cases of pregnancy with intrauterine growth restriction.
