Abstract

Introduction: Intravenous iron sucrose and oral iron therapy are the primary therapeutic modalities for management of iron deficiency anaemia during pregnancy, but its efficacy during pregnancy is still a matter of argument among healthcare personnel. Therefore the objective of this study is to compare the effect of oral iron and intravenous iron sucrose on pregnancy related outcome among pregnant females with iron deficiency anemia.
Materials and Methods: Randomized clinical trial was conducted among females between 14 to 36 weeks gestation with iron deficiency anemia who were managed either with oral ferrous sulphate or intravenous iron sucrose therapy. Chi-square test was used for statistical analysis with p <0> Results: About 11.25% of the study subjects had the complication of abruption/ Post-Partum hemorrhage or had the need of blood transfusion in oral group. No significant difference in respect to maternal complications as well as mode of delivery was observed in between the two groups. In intravenous group proportion of appropriate for gestational age newborns (AGA) were significantly higher than the oral group (p<0> Conclusions: Intravenous iron sucrose use for treatment of iron deficiency anaemia could reduce morbidities from iron deficiency and have better foetal outcome in terms of appropriate for gestational age in newborns.
