Antenatal Corticosteroid Therapy for Fetal Maturation – ACOG

Risk of perinatal death associated with labor after previous cesarean delivery in uncomplicated term pregnancies.

There was no increase in proven neonatal sepsis, chorioamnionitis, or endometritis with late preterm betamethasone. Hypoglycemia was more common in the infants exposed to betamethasone Any madjracion to this document can be maruracion on www. Click here to view the correction. Antenatal steroids at 37 weeks, does it reduce neonatal respiratory morbidity?

Jain L, Eaton DC. Single vs weekly courses of antenatal corticosteroids for women at risk of preterm delivery: Outcomes at 2 years of age after repeat doses of antenatal corticosteroids.

Women’s Health Care Physicians

Single Rescue Course Although the initial data 43 suggested the benefit of corticosteroids may decrease after 7 days, the duration of corticosteroid benefit remains controversial Continued surveillance of long-term outcomes after in utero corticosteroid exposure should be supported. Multiple courses of antenatal corticosteroids for preterm birth MACS: Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative [abstract].

Do antenatal corticosteroids in term elective cesarean sections reduce neonatal respiratory morbidity?. Repeat doses of prenatal corticosteroids for women at risk of preterm birth for improving neonatal health outcomes. Replaces Committee Opinion No. Infants exposed to betamethasone were less likely to require immediate postnatal resuscitation.


Preterm premature rupture of membranes and the rate of neonatal sepsis after two courses of antenatal corticosteroids. Neuro-developmental outcomes of extremely low birth weight infants exposed prenatally to dexamethasone versus betamethasone.

In both, the intervention was two doses of 12 mg of dexamethasone before the caesarean section. Furthermore, tocolysis should not be used in an attempt to delay delivery in order to administer antenatal corticosteroids in the late preterm period, nor should an indicated late preterm delivery such as for preeclampsia with severe features be postponed for corticosteroid administration However, we evidenced certain weaknesses that could modify the internal validity of both studies, so it is necessary to develop new studies that could support these findings in order to modify clinical protocols in term elective caesarean sections.

Both cross the placenta in their active form and have nearly identical biologic activity. Antenatal corticosteroids promote survival of extremely preterm infants born at 22 to 23 weeks of gestation. Postnatal glucose homeostasis in late-preterm and term infants. Regularly scheduled repeat courses or serial courses more than two are not currently recommended Because treatment with corticosteroids for less than 24 hours is still associated with significant reduction in neonatal morbidity and mortality, a first dose of antenatal corticosteroids should be administered even if the ability to give the second dose is unlikely, based on the clinical scenario 11, Antenatal glucocorticoids prior to cesarean delivery at term.

In the Setting of Preterm Prelabor Rupture of Membranes The use of antenatal corticosteroid administration after preterm PROM has been evaluated in a number of clinical trials and has been shown to reduce neonatal mortality, respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular hemorrhage, and necrotizing enterocolitis 6, 12, 19 Although not studied in this trial, long-term adverse outcomes of prolonged and persistent neonatal hypoglycemia have been described 26 Long-Term Outcomes, Risks, and Additional Considerations The concern that corticosteroids may have the potential to adversely affect neurodevelopmental outcomes is largely based on animal data and from studies of multiple course corticosteroids The Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative reported that antenatal corticosteroid rates increase and are maintained at high levels when hospitals are aware that antenatal corticosteroid use is monitored, and missed opportunities are identified and reviewed.


The collaborative worked with Ohio vital records to add antenatal corticosteroid administration to the Ohio birth certificate registry. Am J Obstet Gynecol ; The benefit of corticosteroid administration is greatest at 2—7 days after the initial dose.

Risk of respiratory morbidity in term infants delivered by elective caesarean section: Corticosteroids for preventing neonatal respiratory morbidity after elective caesarean madruacion at term. Effect of corticosteroids for fetal maturation on perinatal outcomes.

J Perinat Med ; OBJECTIVE To find the best evidence available to determine whether the use of antenatal corticosteroids reduces the incidence of respiratory distress syndrome in term babies born by elective caesarean section.
