HASBUN H, Jorge et al. Traumatismo materno grave y cirugía múltiple con resultado perinatal exitoso. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2011, vol.76, n.5, pp.354-358. ISSN 0717-7526.

Maternal trauma is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality for both, fetus and mother. In addition, trauma can generate risks as premature delivery, abruptio placentae and fetal damage. A pregnant women, at 27 gestational weeks had a car accident with dislocation and fractures and extensive skinning of right leg. The first surgery for fracture-dislocations, cleaning and muscle skin flap were complicated with infection from cutaneous focus, serious and persistent. She remainded for 24 days in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with antibiotic therapy; she had 10 procedures of surgical drainage with anesthesia, catheter enteral nutrition and continuous pain medication before delivery. Then, she presented systemic inflammatory syndrome maternal and a cesarean section was done; the newborn weighted 1500 grams and had a favorable evolution. After delivery the mother stayed 60 days in ICU, with 14 reparatives surgeries and complete recovery. In this special patient with severe maternal morbidity we discuss the etiology of the oligoamnios observed, the maternal evolution in ICU, the handling of infection, the significance of surgical treatment in prolonging pregnancy and its influence on a successful perinatal outcome. We emphasize on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in making the medical and surgical decisions in severe maternal trauma.
