AIM: Matched-case control study was performed to assess perinatal mortality and feto-maternal morbidity related to the post-term pregnancy. METHODS: 124 patients who delivered after 42 weeks of pregnancy were matched by age and parity with a control group of patients who delivered at term. Perinatal mortality and neonatal morbidity, as well as maternal morbidity were analyzed in both groups and differences tested for statistical significance. RESULTS: There was no statistically significant difference in perinatal mortality between the two groups (1 vs. 0; p>0.05). A statistically significant difference was found in the umbilical cord blood sample base excess after delivery in the post-term group. Cesarean section rate was higher in the post-term group (-6.1 vs. -4.9, p<0.05). If spontaneous labor occurred, there were no statistically significant differences in any of the analyzed parameters between the groups (p>0.05). CONCLUSION: Post-term pregnancy was related to higher maternal and neonatal morbidity, but the risks were biased by higher induction of labor rate and more frequent monitoring resulting in a higher intervention rate.
