Congenital Birth Defects in Newborns at AL-Elwaya Maternity Hospital in Baghdad City: Retrospective Study

Hawraa Hussein Ghafel

Objectives This study conducted to assess the congenital birth defects in Baghdad City during the last ten years (2006-2016) and to identify the more common congenital birth defects. Methodology A retrospective study conducted at AL-Elwaya Maternity Hospital in Baghdad City to assess the prevalence of congenital birth defects in Baghdad City during the last ten years (2006-2016) and to identify the more common congenital birth defects. The study was started at Fab.2017 to May 2017. The data for this study achieved from recorded information in the statistical department in the hospital. Results The study shows a meaningful power auto-regression model tested in two tailed of alternative statistical hypothesis for two factors, sequence of times per years as independent factor, and numbers of Congenital Delivery as a dependent factor. Slope value estimate and indicating that with increasing one lagged of period with natural logarithm transformation factor, occurrence a positive increment on natural logarithm transformation unit of Congenital Delivery factor, and that estimated by (0.277058), and that increment recorded highly significant and positive effectiveness at P<0.01, as well as strong and highly significant correlation ship coefficient at P<0.01 are recorded between studied factors, and accounted (0.83429) with a meaning determination coefficient R-Square (69.604%), which had explained disturbances among numbers of Congenital Delivery readings along studied periods. Others source of variations are not in model, i.e. Constant term in Auto-regression power equation, shows that non assignable effects that not include in auto-regression power equation couldn't be neglected, since estimated (126.60915) with highly significant at P<0.01, which indicating that rather highly significant effectiveness of the sequence (per yrs.) on the Congenital Delivery numbers, presents that others meaningful effective factor(s) not included in the studied model. Conclusions In this study there is a highly significant relationship between the abnormal congenital birth defects and the time sequences (years). The incidence of congenital anomalies is high such as cardiac abnormalities, renal, lungs and spine, cardiac anomalies is the more common anomalies in newborns for a several years ago. In developing countries like Iraq due to environmental contaminations, wars, and social problems and stress, the developmental defects are often increased. Many anomalies are severe and cause neonatal death.
