Djeca roÄ‘ena mala za gestacijsku dob (SGA)
We have examined the frequency of small for gestational age (SGA) newborns during years 2007- 2016 in the Tuzla Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Methods: This study includes small for gestational age newborns, who were born in the University Clinical Center Tuzla, Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics for a ten- year- period. Results: In the period of ten years the total number of births was 41 475 newborns, of which 1008 (2.43) were small for gestational age. The birth weight ranged from 800 to 2500 grams, SD ± 221.2 and the coefficient of variation of 0.58. The average gestational age was 37.4 weeks of gestation, with SD ± 4.04 and very low coefficient of variation of 0.17. Most of newborns were born in the period 71.9% with significant statistical differences (p <.05) rate (P <.001 for preterm and postterm). The analysis by age is fairly uniform, except in the year 2008. The participation in early neonatal mortality is high, 48%. Conclusions: The incidence of small for gestational age newborns in the study is relatively low, but their representation in the early neonatal mortality rate was extremely high and requres further studies related to preventing the birth and death of the newborn.
