ADESSE, Leila; SILVA, Kátia Silveira da; BONAN, Claudia  and  FONSECA, Vania Matos. Abortion complications and assistance care in a public maternity integrated to the Rede Cegonha National Program. Saúde debate [online]. 2015, vol.39, n.106, pp.694-706. ISSN 0103-1104.

It was aimed to describe the socio-demographic, obstetric and care profile of all in-door abortion hospitalizations from May-August/2012, in emergency, in cross-sectional study. Result: 20.5% were adolescents, 79.5% were over 20 years old and 48.7% were brown colored; 84.7% were unspecified abortions and the time between risk assessment and admission was appropriate in 36.6% of the cases. There are changes in the profile of complications, with reduction of infections and percentage increase of adolescent abortions (20,5%). In the differentiated approach of The Rede Cegonha National Program the risk assessment hosted 90% of women in 30 minutes. The under-registration of the abortion process remains due to lawlessness condition and to ethical and moral dilemmas of the professionals.
