Shatakshi Kulshreshtha, Sujata Siwatch


Objective: To determine the prevalence of meconium stained liquor in women at and beyond expected date of delivery in Indian population. Methods: A retrospective analysis of all women delivered at more than 40 weeks from January 2017 to December 2018 in PGIMER was done. Data was collected from labour room registries. Results: A total of 11,675 women delivered in the labor room at our institute during the year 2017-2018. Of these, 717(6.14%) were more than 40 weeks. Meconium stained liquor (MSL) was present in 107 (14.92%). In our study, 86.9% of women with MSL underwent a cesarean section while 7/107 (6.5%) had instrumental delivery. Conclusion: Prevalence of MSL increases with increasing gestational age after 40 weeks. Most of the pregnancies with MSL eventually delivered via cesarean section.
