    25. 35. Pregnancy Management <ul><li>Single or multiple gestation </li></ul><ul><li>Gestational age at death </li></ul><ul><li>The parents wish </li></ul>
    26. 36. Management <ul><li>Explain the problem to the woman and her family. Discuss with them the options of expectant or active management. </li></ul><ul><li>If expectant management is planned: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Await spontaneous onset of labour during the next four weeks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reassure the woman that in 90% of cases the fetus is spontaneously expelled during the waiting period with no complicatons. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If platelets are decreasing , four weeks have passed without spontaneous labour, fibrinogen levels are low or the woman request it,consider active management (induction of labour) </li></ul>
    27. 37. Management (contd…) <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If induction of labour is planned, assess the cervix </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If the cervix is favourable (soft, thin, partly dilated) labour using oxytocin. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If the cervix is unfavourable(firm, thick, closed) ripen the cervix. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Note: Do not rupture the membranes. </li></ul><ul><li>If spontaneous labor does not occur within four weeks, platelets are decreasing and the cervix is unfavourable, ripen the cervix. </li></ul>
    28. 38. Complications <ul><li>Psychological upset </li></ul><ul><li>Infection: Once the membranes rupture, infection, especially by gas forming organism like CI. Welchi. </li></ul><ul><li>Blood coagulation disorders </li></ul><ul><li>During labour : Uterine inertia and PPH </li></ul>
    29. 39. Prevention of IUFD: <ul><li>Regular antenatal care </li></ul><ul><li>To screen out the at-risk patients to monitor carefully for the assessment of fetal well being and to terminate the pregnancy at the earliest evidences of fetal compromise. </li></ul>
    30. 40. Morbid pathology of IUFD <ul><li>A dead fetus undergoes an aseptic destructive process called maceration . The epiderm is the first structure to undergo the process, whereby blistering and peeling off of the skin occur. It appears between 12-24 hours after death. The foetus becomes swollen and looks dusky red. Gradually aseptic autolysis of the ligamentous structure and liquefaction of the brain matter and other viscera take place. </li></ul>
