ANTUNES, Marcos Benatti et al. Desfecho perinatal em gestantes usuárias de drogas atendidas em um centro especializado   [title language="en"]Perinatal outcomes in pregnant drug users attended at a specialized center. SMAD, Rev.

OBJECTIVE: to analyze the perinatal repercussions of drug use by pregnant women treated in a high risk outpatient clinic. METHOD: a case-control study in which 920 medical records were evaluated in the period 2012-2013. The case group consisted of pregnant women who used licit/illicit drugs (41) and the control group of non-user pregnant women (82). RESULTS: pregnant women using drugs presented increased risk for prematurity (RR = 2.64, p = 0.02), low birth weight (RR = 5.42, p = 0.01) and low one-minute Apgar score (RR = 2.97, p = 0.01). CONCLUSION: the results indicate that pregnant women who use drugs have unfavorable perinatal outcomes during gestation.
