ART & placenta-mediated outcomes

Postby caryn » Mon Nov 09, 2009 12:48 am

After adjustment of potential confounders, including smoking, delivery hospital level, initiating time of prenatal care, average neighborhood income, fetal sex, and previous cesarean delivery, there was no association observed between different types of ART groups and the composite of placenta-mediated pregnancy complications. Intrauterine insemination was associated with a significantly increased risk of preeclampsia (12 [2.67%] odds ratio 2.2, 95% confidence interval 1.04-5.04) compared with the corresponding control group (23 [1.29%]).

Okay, that's a little odd. Why would IUI raise PE risk when IVF doesn't? (Granted, it's a small subset of the population.)
