Background: Globally, about 11% of all liveborn infants are preterm. To date, data on prevalence and risk factors of preterm birth (PTB) in Russia are limited. The aims of this study were to estimate the prevalence of PTB in Murmansk County, Northwestern Russia and to investigate associations between PTB and selected maternal factors using the Murmansk County Birth Registry. Methods: We conducted a registry-based study of 52 806 births (2006–2011). In total, 51 156 births were included in the prevalence analysis, of which 3546 were PTBs. Odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals of moderate-to-late PTB, very PTB and extremely PTB for a range of maternal characteristics were estimated using multinomial logistic regression, adjusting for potential confounders. Results: The overall prevalence of PTB in Murmansk County was 6.9%. Unmarried status, prior PTBs, spontaneous and induced abortions were strongly associated with PTB at any gestational age. Maternal low educational level increased the risk of extremely and moderate-to-late PTB. Young (<18 years) or older (≥35 years) mothers, graduates of vocational schools, underweight, overweight/obese mothers, and smokers were at higher risk of moderate-to-late PTB. Secondary education, alcohol abuse, diabetes mellitus, or gestational diabetes were strongly associated with moderate-to-late and very PTB. Conclusions: The observed prevalence of PTB (6.9%) in Murmansk County, Russia was comparable with data on live PTB from European countries. Adverse prior pregnancy outcomes, maternal low educational level, unmarried status, alcohol abuse, and diabetes mellitus or gestational diabetes were the most common risk factors for PTB.

Changes in detection of birth defects and perinatal mortality after introduction of prenatal ultrasound screening in the Kola Peninsula (North-West Russia): combination of two birth registries Postoev, Vitaly Alexandrovich; Grjibovski, Andrej; Nieboer, Evert; Odland, Jon Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-23)Background: Prenatal diagnostics ultrasound was established in Russia in 2000 as a routine method of screening for birth defects. The aims of the current study were twofold: to assess changes in birth defects prevalence at birth and perinatal mortality after ultrasound screening was implemented and to estimate prenatal detection rates for congenital malformations in the city of Monchegorsk (Murmansk ...
The Murmansk county birth registry (MCBR) : the implementation and applicability of a population-based medical birth registry in the Russian Arctic Anda, Erik Eik (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2009-09-04)The Murmansk County Birth Registry (MCBR) was initiated on January 1. 2006. Currently (April 2009) the MCBR has registered over 26 000 births. The registry covers a geographical area known as the Kola Peninsula in Northwest Russia, which is almost entirely located above the Arctic Circle. Murmansk County is about half the size of Norway and had 857 000 inhabitants in 2008. All the 15 delivery ...
