|Abstract||Medical professionals and public are concerned about the complications of pregnancy and delivery in women with epilepsy (WWE).Purpose: Our aim was to prospectively ascertain Occurrence of these complications in a cohort of WWE enrolled in a pregnancy registry.Methods: All complications during pregnancy, delivery and first 48 h Of Postpartum period were recorded according to the registry protocol. This data were compared with similar statistics (for women without epilepsy) from a large teaching hospital.Results: Between April 1998 and March 2005, there were 643 completed pregnancies in this registry. (Mean age 25.7 +/- 4.43 years; generalized epilepsy 46%; localization related epilepsy 54%: primigravida 53%.) Their complications are compared with those of 18,272 pregnancies managed in the teaching hospital (in parentheses). Spontaneous abortions 4.2% (2.38%); medical termination of pregnancies 2.64% (7.71%); anemia 0,62% (0.22%); gestational diabetes 1.56% (3.09%); pregnancy induced hypertension 3.89% (6.45%): antepartum hemorrhage 0.93% (1.64%); preterm labor 1.87% (6.12%); obstructed labor 0.62% (3%): cesarean section 33.4% (29.5%): assisted delivery 2.8% (2.68%); postpartum hemorrhage 0.31% (0.64%): peripartum seizures 1.4% (0.04%); intrauterine death 1.56% (2.2%); fibroid uterus or ovarian cyst 2.33% (0.53%): other medical illness 2.5% (2.15%); TORCH infection 0.31% (0.01%); birth weight <2.0 kg 4.19% (7.66%).Conclusions: There was no significant increase in the risk of complications of pregnancy or delivery except for spontaneous abortions, anemia, ovarian cyst, fibroid uterus, and seizures in the peripartum period which were more frequent in WWE. Frequency of cesarean section is not increased in WWE. There is no undue risk to pregnancy and childbirth in most WWE. (c) 2008 British Epilepsy Association. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
