1 QUESTION OF THE MONTH July, 2000. In the next three slides you will find the most significant maternal mortality figures during the XX Century. We will show only series with more than one hundred cases, with only one or two exceptions, because these will represent the situation in highly advanced societies where eclampsia was supposed to have disappeared in the second half of the XX Century. You will notice that next to Strogannof´s we have completely different rates in Eden’s England and also that next to Menon we have the same situation with Agüero’s data using the same treatment in Venezuela.. Examine these figures and go to slide number five to see our questions.

2 MORTALIDAD MATERNA EN LA ECLAMPSIA 1900 a 1950 Fechas intermedias de cada serie * Países en vías de desarrollo Series de >100 casos

3 MORTALIDAD MATERNA EN LA ECLAMPSIA 1950 a 1975 Fechas intermedias de cada serie * Países en vías de desarrollo Series de >100 casos

4 MORTALIDAD MATERNA EN LA ECLAMPSIA 1975 a 2000 Fechas intermedias de cada serie * Países en vías de desarrollo Series de >100 casos (Möller N=71) (Bouvier-Colle N=52)

5 Why do we have such extreme differences in maternal mortality, if all authors used the best of their knowledge and experience to treat these patients? If in early XX Century they did not have advanced technological and pharmacological resources as nowadays, with Intensive Care Units, how could some authors report lower figures then, than most recent series in developing countries? If in early XX Century, cesarean operation rate for antepartum eclampsia was less than ten per cent, how could some authors report just as low mortality then as many modern authors with rates between sixty and seventy five per cent of cesarean operation?
