Acute pancreatitis in pregnancy: meta-analysis of maternal and fetal outcomes

, A Hughes, P B White, M A Silva

Abstract: The impact of acute pancreatitis in pregnancy on maternal and fetal outcomes is unclear. Historical case series document very poor outcomes, with maternal mortality rates of 20 per cent and fetal loss of 50 per cent. However, this is based on outdated clinical practice. This meta-analysis quantified both maternal and fetal outcomes following acute pancreatitis in pregnancy based on the concurrent literature. Maternal and fetal outcomes after acute pancreatitis in pregnancy have improved with advances in the management of pancreatitis.
Keywords: pancreatitis in pregnancy / cent / maternal and fetal outcomes / acute pancreatitis
