According to a research done by officials of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation medical complications resulting from incomplete abortions are most likely to affect single women and those of Amerindian descent.
The research stated that of 135 patients analyzed, 18.5 per cent encountered post abortion complications. Of those, 8.8 percent received blood transfusion and 7.7 percent developed post- abortal infection; while, 2.2 had both.
Fortunately, none of the complications proved detrimental. Post abortal complications, and more specifically, need for blood transfusion was said to have been most common among single women.
The research further stated that, women who were highly educated had a lower level of complication as opposed to those who had only a primary level education.
According to officials from the GPHC, the research was carried out with the aim of determining the most common outcomes of patients with incomplete abortion and to ascertain the factors contributing to blood transfusions among patients.
A prospective study was conducted on all women who were admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation with incomplete abortions during the period of August 31, 2009 to October 31, 2009.
Data regarding the demographical and clinical characteristics of each patient was collected by interviews and medical charts.
